Spring health

Dandelion Rheumatism Potion

To make a potion to cure rheumatism, begin with half a handful of fresh dandelion leaves. (Please, MAKE SURE THEY HAVE NOT BEEN TREATED WITH ANY WEED KILLER!!!) Put the dandelion leaves in a cup of boiling water, saying:

By power of leaf and herbal charm,
By potion´s strength, relieve all harm.
Pain be gone and joints be free.
As I will, so mote it be.

Infuse for fifteen minutes, adding a clear quartz crystal for the last five. Drink half a cup of the potion daily. Carry the crystal with you, but wash it each time you make a new batch of potion to remove the accrued negativity. After a few months, the dandelion potion will remove the acid deposits that cause the pain of rheumatism.

Dandelion leaves are also great added to a spring salad, though slightly bitter in taste, they are full of vitamins and good things for your body!

Another good tip is to add some leaves, that have been slightly crushed, to a bottle of vodka..... Let sit in the vodka for a week, strain the leaves out, and cap the bottle. A shot of this is the winter is refreshing, and healthy
