Have you ever tried brewing up your own potions at home? Yes, brewed tea is a potion! By hand blending and brewing your tea with intention, you will end up with a big ole’ cup of pure magic!
Tea invokes all five elements, so it is great when practicing Elemental Magic. The leaves, roots, seeds, flowers, and fruit represent earth. The steam and aroma of the brew represents the air element. The warmth of the tea represents fire. The water represents the water element, and the ritual process of blending and brewing the tea represents the ether or spirit element.
The plants you choose to use in your tea blend depend on what you resonate with personally, and how well the plants you use align with the intention you want to set for your brew. For example, if you are brewing a potion to help you sleep, you might want to use chamomile, lavender and peppermint for their soothing properties, or if you are brewing a potion for grounding and strength,you could try working with roots like ginger or dandelion root.
Different teas also work with balancing different chakras, so consider making a brew specific to any chakra work you may be doing. Here is a quick list of some teas that work with each chakra:
Root Chakra - Ginger, Dandelion Root, Ashwagandha
Sacral Chakra - Calendula, Hibiscus
Solar Plexus Chakra - Rosemary, Fennel, Cinnamon
Heart Chakra - Hawthorn Berry, Rose, Marjoram
Throat Chakra - Lemon Balm, Eucalyptus
Third Eye Chakra - Lemon, Jasmine, Mint
Crown Chakra - Sage, Lavender, Mugwort
You can use as many herbs/flowers/roots as you want to according to the intention you set. It’s sometimes easiest to use equal parts of each plant for your tea, but the amounts you want to use are up to you. The recipe for your brew will be entirely your own, and be sure to write it down in your spell book or journal for future reference. Now that you have all the basic info, let’s brew up some magic! Here is a recipe to get you started, but feel free to change it up as needed.
