Mamaki: Native to the Hawaiian Islands, I have chosen this herb to share with you in our discover blend because it contains goodness beyond measure. This masculine plant compares in many ways to its fellow MARS ruled relative, the stinging nettle plant, however due to the fact that it only has been found on the Hawaiian Islands, makes it relatively unknown.

Mugwort: This MOON ruled leaf is one of my favorites for activation of the THIRD EYE, inducing dreams and visions. Subtle though she can be, Mugwort is a favorite in my plant medicine cabinet. Her skills at allowing comfort in menstruation and during menopause, along with her capable balance to reduce joint aches and stress make this plant a beautiful addition to most relief teas- especially for women. Mugwort baths are a beneficial and personal favorite leading upto one’s monthly flow.
