Manuka Wild Rose

Leptospermum Scoparium:


Rose family, especially Hawthorn is tremendously helpful in calming the physiological and emotional hyper-reactivity that are associated with histamine releases. Gentle cooling and subtle astringency 

Rose (Rosa )

There is, perhaps, no scent more evocative than that of a blooming Rose carried on the wind on a summer morning just after a rain.

In Virdarium Umbris, herbalist and occultist, Daniel Schulke, writes “The Soul of the Rose is exalted within the dew on her petals.” (2005) Ayurvedic aromatherapist, David Crow, writes that the scent of the Rose “is the moonlight absorbed by the flowers, the dew on their petals at dawn, and the flavors of the soils in which they grow “ (n.d) It is a scent that invites us into an immediate sensual experience of the world around us, seducing us into embodied connection by reminding us of beauty.

Roses engage our senses deeply. The reds and pinks and whites and yellows of the blossoms draw our eyes and speak of the gradual unfurling of mysteries to those who approach with loving attention. The petals caress our skin and their medicine soothes raging heat. Their scent opens the heart.

Rose's reputation as an aphrodisiac comes s from its simultaneous capacity to soothe us and delight our senses, making us more open to intimacy. But that intimacy need not be with a human lover or partner and need not be sexual in the sense in which our culture tends to use the word – it can be erotic in a broader sense. Eros is the drive for life, vitality, and connection. When we define the erotic in this sense, the definition of an aphrodisiac broadens as well – aphrodisiacs are those medicines that invite us into deep presence and relation. Absolutely, an aphrodisiac can be a love potion in the conventional sense, but it can just as easily be an herb that invites a despondent spirit to remain in the world. . One winter I had a client struggling with deep depression ask his partner to bring him Roses every week and prepare him baths with the petals – the medicine helped him remain alive and engaged during a season in which his senses were often dulled and his heart often slumbering.


Rose tincture soften and open your heart— and perhaps bring on tears—then you have experienced this phenomenon. ( Seán Pádraig O’Donoghue)


Sensual Damiana

Turnera diffusa:


Enhance the sensations in the body. Gently warming Damiana, which brings blood flowing to the pelvis, helps to connect the Cauldron of Incubation with the Cauldron of Motion. which inhibits MAO-B, the sister enzyme of MAO-A. MAO-A breaks down all of our major neurotransmitters, but MAO-B breaks down only dopamine, so inhibiting MAO-B will tilt the balance in favor of dopamine. Damiana is a light at the southwestern horizon reminding us that though the night descending is dark, morning will come. Bitter, warming, and aromatic, Damiana grounds us into our bodies, stirs our heart to quicken the rhythm of the movement of our blood, gently opens the airways, and relaxes the tension we hold to allow the blood to flow freely to all of our parts—and where blood flows, awareness goes.

Raise your sensual energy with safe boundaries


Black Cohosh

Cimicifuga racemosa:


Relax tension, bring you into your center & flow energy along the spinal column. 

Black Cohosh helps to ease this kind of stagnant depression by allowing the cerebrospinal fluid to detoxify the brain—when we stew in the same old neurotransmitters we stew in the same old emotions


The tightness and heaviness in her chest further released with Black Cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa), which can bring tears of relief and release.


Black Cohosh is a plant with dark, gnarled, twisted roots that give rise to a tall stalk topped with a spray of white flowers. It is native to Appalachia and is threatened by overharvesting in its native habitat, so please seek Black Cohosh from growers who cultivate it, or, better yet, if you live somewhere where it will thrive, grow it yourself.

Black Cohosh is indicated when someone is in despair, brooding over loss and pain and worry, with grief hanging over them like the proverbial black cloud. There is often tension and dull ache in the trapezius, a hunched-over posture, and a heavy feeling in the chest. These people will also have a tendency to take on other people’s grief.

I think of the spray of white flowers, high above the gnarled root, as the stars that show the way up out of the abyss—or at least bring the reminder that there is a world beyond the well. The well of grief can be an important place to spend time. In Irish tradition, all the rivers and streams of the world have their root in a well in the Otherworld beneath our feet—the place of all beginnings and endings. To me, the well of deep grief is that same well, and, awash in its waters, we release the meanings the world held before and prepare ourselves to create new meaning as we relate to the world in a new way. But eventually we need to return to the world. And I have found Black Cohosh helps to shift the stagnant emotions that are weighing me down and help me

see the starry sky. This reminds me that the iron in my blood and the iron at the core of the earth were forged together in the first generation of stars, that I am connected with everything.

Many contemporary herbalists speak of Black Cohosh as working on estrogen levels through various proposed mechanisms that shift and change as each model becomes outdated. They presume that the depression Black Cohosh treats is associated with estrogen levels, pointing to the greater prevalence of this kind of brooding depression before menstruation, the role of Black Cohosh in easing menstrual pain and in bringing on delayed menstruation, and anecdotal evidence that this kind of depression is most common in women. But I have used Black Cohosh to ease this kind of depression in people of all genders and with all kinds of hormonal profiles. If brooding depression is most prevalent among women, it may be because our society asks women to take on the responsibility for other people’s emotions—especially those of men. And Black Cohosh’s role in bringing on menstruation can be explained as much through its action on nerves, muscles, fascia, and fluids as it can by a hormonal model of its action.
