Many mystical and magical uses have been found for the thirteen trees
which symbolize the months of the Celtic lunar year, and it is likely,
considering the popularity of Celtic Paganism, that many more will be discovered.
However you choose to observe the lunar months, it can be helpful to
first imbibe a magical brew designed to attune your body and spirit to the
occasion.
Following are the recipes for thirteen teas which will accomplish just
that.
The measurements given are approximate, and for making one eight-ouncemug
full you should use no more than a single heaping teaspoon of dry herbs
placed inside a tea ball or cheesecloth strainer. All liquid measurements
should be added to taste. Allow the tea to steep at least two minutes,
longer if you prefer a stronger flavor. As always, when ingesting untried
substances, be sure to test for any allergic reactions first, and
remember
that no herbal preparation should ever be taken over the long term
without
consulting an expert pharmacologist or botanist.
Though very few of the recipes actually contain any part of the trees to
which they are attributed, they work quite well because their ingredients
rely on using herbs and juices which share magical affinities with the
properties of the tree. These properties are listed after the name of
each
tree so that, if you choose to, you can make substitutions based upon
this
knowledge. Depending upon the particular Celtic tradition you follow, the
lunar year starts with either the first new moon closest to Samhain or
the
one just before Yule.
