Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba) is much more than just a beautiful tree- actually, it is the oldest surviving tree that was once believed to have gone extinct before being rediscovered in Buddhist monasteries in Japan
In Japanese, the word for bank is 銀行 ginkou and in China, the tree is associated with both health and wealth- likely because ginkgo is a potent and widely sought after ingredient in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Medicinally, both Ginkgo fruits and leaves are used to treat a variety of ailments, including circulation problems and nervous system issues. It is believed to improve mental performance and can assist in the treatment of a wide variety of diseases.
Before trying new herbal medicines, it is always a good idea to first consult your doctor to see if it is a good fit for you and any current medications you are taking
Harvested from the world’s oldest surviving tree, ginkgo leaf extracts have been shown to markedly improve blood flow through the arteries in the brain, to protect the central nervous system from oxidative damage, and to enhance mental recall and ability in healthy adults.

How to Grow Your Funds With Ginkgo
All you need is:
- A ginkgo leaf
If you’re lucky enough to have a ginkgo tree nearby, stop by and take a leaf- you can select a clean one from the ground (they naturally fall in the Autumn and may sometimes fall due to strong winds or animals) or respectfully take one from the tree (being sure to thank the tree and potentially making a small offering in gratitude)
→ Look for green ginkgo leaves in the spring and summer to naturally grow your bills
→ Pick up golden ginkgo leaves in the autumn for the rich blessing of “natural gold”
Tuck the fresh leaf into your wallet or purse- it will dry naturally but will retain its lovely unique shape so long as it is handled gently
Our gingko leaves are nearly a year old now- it will soon be time to replace them with new ones!
With a ginkgo leaf nearby, it will help to protect the funds you have as well as healthily helping to grow new money
After a full cycle of the seasons (or before if your leaf begins to fall apart), replace your ginkgo leaf with a new one. The old leaf can be offered on your altar and/or respectfully returned to the earth
