Spring Tonic: Inner and Outer Beauty

This article was written by Stephanie Rose Bird
posted under Pagan

Now here is something you don't see every day: a tonic that revitalizes energy and perks up weather-beaten hair —all in one. This spring tonic enhances hair color, brings gray from dingy to golden —and does the same for our spirit. It also brings depth to dark brown and black hair, lifts mood, relaxes anxiety, serves as an internal cleanser or a uterine tonic, gently stabilizes hormonal upsets, and boosts immunity. It contains equal amounts of oat straw, pau d'arco, black tea, lavender, bay leaves, parsley, chickweed, calendula, rosemary, sage, and marshmallow root.

To color hair: Add two tablespoons of the mixture to four cups of water. Bring to a boil. Cover. Reduce heat to low. Infuse twenty minutes. Let cool. Strain well.

A planet does not have to be moving in direct motion to get positive results. The backward motion of a planet through an astrological sign gets us to be more reflective and does, to some degree, slow down... read this article
