Maiden, Mother and Crone Herbs

by Marguerite Elsbeth

Ancient cultures including the Celtic peoples viewed the goddess as having three manifestations — Maiden, Mother and Crone — which symbolized the three phases of a woman’s life. Below are herbs and teas that honor each of these phases. Be careful in their preparation to avoid using copper or aluminum untensils as they are highly reactive to the volatile oils contained in the herbs.

Maiden Herbs – For skin trouble, raging hormones or menstrual discomfort try astralgus, black haw, burdock root, cinnamon bark, dandelion root, ginger root, licorice root, nettle leaf, seaweed or valerian root. Moon Maiden Tea is used against menstrual cramps and employs the mystical, wild, enchanted energy of night. Place black haw, ginger and cinnamon in a crystal bowl. Cover with fresh cold water and set outside under the moonlight. Let stand overnight. In the morning, move the container to a warm, shady spot. Add valerian root and infuse for thirty minutes. Strain and drink a little every fifteen minutes.
