Lunar infusionsIncreasing therapeutic powers and potency of herbal infusions was a subject of interest and investigation of many herbalists and naturopaths. Preparing herbal infusions is as easy as just putting fresh or dried herbs in water, but how to benefit from all possible powers and potential effects of this simple herbal product? How to charge them with extra energy and extra power? Is it possible to add special magic of the earth or other celestial objects to strengthen healing powers of infusions?

Have you ever considered using the light of Sun and Moon as very powerful sources of energy which can charge your herbal teas, herbal infusions and other herbal preparations? The idea to place herbal infusions to pick up some amazing magic properties of sun and moon is a thousand year old concept. By our ancestors it was discovered that solar infusions are uplifting and bringing energy, when lunar infusions have excellent relaxing and calming down properties.  Another interesting thing is that both lunar and solar infusions give us a chance to work with the Zodiac signs and make custom herbal preparations.

Solar infusionsSolar Infusions: as the name suggests, it is an infusion which has captured magic powers and energy of sunlight. To prepare your solar infusions, you need to place herbs in a glass jar or bottle, pour boiling water over the herbs, cover the jar up and leave to be exposed to direct sunlight as much as it necessary. Some solar infusions require several hours to get ready, some require several weeks. Usually if compared to normal infusions, solar infusions have more distinct and strong taste, as well as brighter and alive color. Undoubtedly, summer time with a lot of sunlight as the best time for preparing solar infusions.

Lunar Infusions: in contrast to solar infusions, lunar infusions are prepared by placing the infusion in the path of direct moonlight. Remember that there’s one important difference between preparing Solar and Lunar Infusion. When preparing the latter, you should not cover up your jar or bottle. Leave the jar overnight and when you wake up in the morning, drink the infusion right away. You’ll feel magic power and magic energy! Lunar infusions work best for such aromatic refreshing herbs as mint and chamomile. Certainly, the best time for preparing the most potent magic Lunar infusion is a full moon night. Lunar Infusions are linked to feminine nature and feminine mystic.
