parsifalrain, February, 12

Under old knowledge is understood the since time immemorial known experiences of humanity which resulted in the first step from the observation of Nature.
The changing of the Seasons, the Stars in the Sky, grow and thrive throughout the Wheel of the Year.
In this series, it's about how one once valued Nature and Man was a living part of Nature.
Of particular importance to me is the symbiosis of Man and Plant, and how to use the Plants.
Nature is a treasure full of possibilities which reveals itself to me in the effect of the Plants and in the use of the old Rituals.
My interest is to give people access to their native Kingdom of Plants and the ancient Myths and Customs of their Culture.

The Watercress, Brunnenkresse (Nasturtium officinale)
Cruciferous plant family
(botanical described in more details in my e-book 'Spring Therapy With Weeds' on page 21)
At the Watercress, I particularly appreciate that I can collect her even in the middle of Winter.
Over snow-covered meadows I go to the forest section where the green Watercress smiles at me.
She can be found on the small, slowly flowing streamlet or marvellous but rare spectacles of Nature: Artesian aquifers.
And I'm happy about the fresh, vitamin-rich green that enriches our diet in the middle of this times low in vegetables.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAn3Zx0sClk


the history
The Watercress is revered as one of the few medicinal Plants since ancient world.
In the Middle Ages, it was considered universal medicinal Herb because of her diverse effect.
That is why the Watercress is described in detail and praised in many medieval herbal books.

occurrence
Watercress grows throughout Europe on slow-flowing waters and springs.
Mostly she covers the floor like a green carpet.

Plants should be taken only from running waters, once the plants are blooming, they are no longer well-suited for consumption.

ingredients
Essential mustard oils - which give Cress its sharpness
Tannins and bitter substances
Very much Vitamin C, but also Vitamins A, D and E.
Iron, potassium, arsenic and iodine

curative effect
Antibacterial - penicillin of the forest
Blood cleansing and diuretic - ideal support for the Spring Cure
strengthens the function of liver and bile
activates the entire metabolism
Expectorant - helps with catarrh of the upper respiratory tract
Watercress is considered an aphrodisiac and appetite-stimulating, metabolism-promoting, diuretic and labor-promoting.
Therefore, Watercress should better not be consumed In pregnancy.

use as a medicinal Plant
As the ingredients of Watercress are largely lost during drying, she should be applied fresh.
Since her ingredients can irritate the gastric mucous membranes, she should not be consumed daily.

fresh Plant juice
Fresh Watercress leaves are juiced
The juice works well against coughing and hoarseness
Take a tablespoon 3 times a day

fresh Plant infusion
2 teaspoons of fresh Watercress leaves are poured over with ¼ liter of boiling Water - leave to draw for 5 minutes.
Drink a cup of it daily for 3 Weeks.
This Tea has a strong blood purifier and therefore supports a Spring Cure.

recipes from the Wild Herb cuisine
for daily use:

Sprinkle finely chopped Watercress leaves on the bread.
Just add Watercress to the salad - tastes wonderfully spicy
Blend Watercress with cottage cheese and sour cream, salt and pepper to a delicious Spring spread

Watercress soup
1 onion
½ kg of floury potatoes
a little butter
real salt, pepper, grated nutmeg
1 handful of fresh Watercress leaves
whipped cream
Chop the onion and sauté in a little butter.
Pour the vegetable soup on, add the diced potatoes and cook until soft.
Season with real salt and pepper, add a pinch of nutmeg.
Finally, boil the freshly chopped Watercress leaves very briefly.
Puree the soup and refine with whipped cream to taste.
Serve with roasted whole grain bread cubes and a few fresh leaves.

Winter vegetables with fresh Watercress
To enrich our daily vegetables with additional Vitamins, I like to add fresh Watercress.
Cut the carrots, potatoes and celery into small cubes and steam until soft.
Swirl the finished vegetables in butter, season with real salt and mix with very finely cut Watercress.

 

 

The Ground Ivy - Creeping Charlie, Gundel-Vine, Gundelrebe, Gundermann, Günsel (Wound leaflet) (Glechoma hederacea)
Mint family [Lamiaceae or Labiatae]

(botanical described in more details in my e-book 'Spring Therapy With Weeds' on page 11)
Ground Ivy is a small, rather inconspicuous plant that has already caused some garden lovers to despair, because it has the habit of growing around the house.
It is a herbaceous, perennial and, above all, hardy plant.
I really appreciate this property because I am able to collect fresh Ground Ivy leaflets right in the back of the house in February and use them in my kitchen.

video: GROUND IVY GLECHOMA HEDERACEA

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwpK-GE2GgY

history and myths
Creeping Charlie is one of the most important ingredients of the Nine Herb Soup, which has always been prepared around Maundy Thursday.
He is also known as the 'Holy Thursday soup'.
Ground Ivy gives this soup the harsh taste.
In addition, the Gundel-Vine was sacred to the Celts and Teutons.
They believed that among their leaves lived the house-and-home-ghosts who took care of the people.
If you wear Gundel-Vine wreaths in the head of Walpurgis, you can recognize every evil spirit.

occurrence:
The Gundel Vine is common throughout Europe, but also grows in Asia and North America.
Preferably, he grows near houses, on walls and fences.
But you can also find him in wet forests and meadows

ingredients:
3-7% tannins, the bitter substance Glechomin
vitamin C
potassium
0.03% to 0.06% essential oil
rosemary acid

curative effect
anti-inflammatory
soothing (makes you feel good !)
astringent
Expectorant
stimulating bladder and kidney
regulating the entire metabolism
oral hygiene and oral infections
bruises
Ground Ivy helps with all protracted, persistent and debilitating forms of disease, especially when they are related to pus.
He helps with chronic disease like bronchitis, runny nose, and mucosal inflammation.
He also strengthens the heart and circulation, and serves as a general corroborative.
Gundel Vine has a grounding effect and helps to have both feet on the ground.
A tea from the leaves and flowers should help to drain heavy metals out of the body.

Ground Ivy should not be consumed In pregnancy, however, poisoning in humans are not known.
 
collection
Creeping Charlie can be collected throughout the Year and is one of the few Plants that we can look for in the Winter under the snow or on  house walls.

The main collection time for Ground Ivy is from March to October.
The flowers can be collected from May to June, preferably when the moon is just increasing.

use as a medicinal Plant
Tea is made from fresh or dried leaves, with the effect of a tea from fresh plant parts being much higher.
Creeping Charlie can also be preserved very well as an oil, known as the Ground Ivy oil, which causes wounds to heal quickly.
In addition, leaves are collected in June or July and filled into a small glass.
The leaves are pressed tightly, covered with thistle oil and allowed to stand in a sunny spot for a few Days, until a light liquid forms at the bottom of the glass.
This is then carefully strained and stored in a dark vial.
The Bach flowers from Ground Ivy help to fix old, misunderstood feelings.
Old patterns of behavior can be better recognized and changed, especially those that you did not even notice.
It also helps to develop, tune and to express the finer qualities of one's own being.
It brings confidence in oneself no matter where one is right now..

recipes from the Wild Herb Cuisine
Ground Ivy potato cheese
300g boiled, floury potatoes
1 onion
1 cup of sour cream
2 tablespoons freshly chopped Ground Ivy leaves
Grate the potatoes, mix with chopped onion, sour cream, Gundel Vine, real salt and pepper.
Potato cheese is a wonderful spread and tastes whether great or small.
With the Ground Ivy tastes everything a little spicier and offers a welcome change in the Wild Herb Cuisine.

Gundel-Vine potato dumplings
500g of floury potato
1 egg
a little spelled flour
real salt and nutmeg
A few leaflets of the Gundel-Vine
Boil the potatoes and let it cool.
Finely grate and knead with flour and egg to a potato dough.
Add the spices and the Ground Ivy, form small patties and bake in a little butter.
Decorate with fresh leaves.

Plants in the Wheel of the Year - December
Herbs in December are Mistletoe and Holly

Celtic Wheel Of The Year is a mixed media by Kristen Fox

 

In the Wheel Of The Year we are now in the time of the greatest darkness, which is celebrated with Holy Fires.

At Midwinter the rebirth of the Sun God Mabon is celebrated.

During the Winter Solstice, the Holly King hands over his crown to the Oak King, who from now on will lead the world into light and warmth.

 

'The return to Nature, the conscious experience of not being separated, but a part of it, has given me a deep inner Peace that I no longer want to miss.

So the Rituals that I celebrate for the eight celebrations in The Wheel Of The Year are an integral part of my calendar.

The Solstices and Equinoxes as well as the four Fire Fetivals Samhain, Imbolc, Baltane and Lughnasad help me to consciously perceive the changing and recurring Seasons, but also open my mind to the Inner worlds, the truths that lie behind the obvious, and connect me with the 'Other World', the Realm of the Gods and Goddesses, the home of Nature Spirits and Elemental Spirits of the Ancestors.

Here I find advice, knowledge and enlightenment, which I can use to lead a responsible life in the Here and Now'.

 - parsifalrain, December 1

Nature has given us her strength since time immemorial.

Let us accept this gift gratefully !

Energetically, Mistletoe, Holly and other evergreen Plants are expressions of immortality and eternal Life.

 

Mistletoe, Viscum album;

Sandalwood (Santalales); Dicotyledons; Angiosperms; family of Seed Plants (Spermatophyta), Mistel

Mistletoe is a wondrous Plant that only becomes visible in the Winter Months, when the Trees are bare.

It is dioecious, which means that each Plant has either male or female Flowers.

The mysterious Mistletoe has fascinated mankind for a very long time.

It was considered the most important magic Plant of the Celtic Druids.

Many Stories and Myths entwine around the mysterious Mistletoe - popular names reveal its high power.

The light germinator Mistletoe was also called Witch's nest, Witch's bush, Devil's seed, Devil's broom, Truden's nest or Alp-Twine (Alp= Elfish being).

 

Since time immemorial, Mistletoe has been used to cook ointments and brews that promote fertility, expel ulcers (Mistletoe is used in modern cancer therapy), or help against the epilepsy (typical 'Shamanic dis-ease').

The special thing about Mistletoe is that it grows against time.

It grows green and fructiferous in Winter.

The fact that it lives high up in the Trees as a semi-parasite has always impressed people.

Even today the Mistletoe branches are hung up as protection.

Mistletoe often grows on Trees in 'difficult' locations.

In places with increased earth radiation or at water vein crossings.

Plants that grow in such locations are also able to solve exactly these problems.

The smudging of Mistletoe can transform negative vibrations into positive vibrancies.

Mistletoe also has an important place in cancer therapy.

It has been shown to inhibit tumor growth.

 

specific features

The Leaves are evergreen and continue to grow over the Years before they fall off without wilting and do not have a typical upper or lower surface.

 

Their growth is extremely slow and only begins after two Years with the first Leaves.

The first Flowers are visible after 6 - 7 Years.

It grows in Winter and Spring.

The Mistletoe rests from June to Winter.

 

The Mistletoe has a round shape and has no orientating relation to Earth or the horizon.

Between May and July the Mistletoe carries out daily small twisting movements of the Leaves and branches to align itself (to find its own centre), which results in its spherical growth.

 

The translucent to creamy-yellowish (depending on the host Plant), fleshy, 6 - 10 mm large Berry Fruits (false Berries) with only one to two seeds/embryos can be seen from September to January.

However, these Fruits alone cannot sprout.

For this they need the help of birds.

Some bird species play an important role.

 

The Mistletoe embryos are very resistant, they can stick to the Trees during the Winter and then sprout in Spring.

For their development they need about 9 Months.

They develop particularly well on young host Trees or branches.

 

Mistletoes can live up to 30 Years.

The Latin name Viscum means glue and refers to the sticky flesh of the Fruit (also called bird glue).

 

Fairy Tales and Myths

At the time of the Winter Solstice and as a Christmas decoration, it is also often hung on the front doors to protect the house from damage, especially in the Twelve Days After Christmas.

Anyone who kisses under Mistletoes should become a happy couple.

 

Pliny, the Roman historian who lived in the first Century after Christ, describes in detail how the Druids worshipped Mistletoe.

 

 

'To be a Druid means to preserve, develop and pass on authentic life knowledge'.

- parsifalrain

 

'Not to be forgotten is the high Mistletoe worship among the Gauls.

The Druids had nothing, so they called their Priests what would have been holier to them than the Mistletoe and the Tree on which it grows, especially if it was a Winter Oak. They regarded everything that grows on this Tree as a gift from Heaven and as a sign that this Tree was chosen by the Gods themselves. ...If necessary, it was then cut off with great solemnity on the sixth day before the new moon, according the Gallic calendar. The Priests, dressed in white, climbed the Tree and cut off the Mistletoe with a Golden Sickle, which was then caught in a white cloak. So great was the pious faith in unimportant things'.

 

But the History of Mistletoe goes back much further.

Since the megalithic period of the indigenous European Cultures it has been revered as a Cultic Plant and Panacea.

properties and effects

haemostatic

digestive

reduces the vascular tension of the blood vessels

hypotensive

Heart strengthening, since the Heart is relieved

metabolically stimulating

antispasmodic

anti-inflammatory

Caution: too high doses lead to disturbances in the gastrointestinal tract.

 

healing purposes

successfully used in cancer therapy

Mistletoe plays an important role especially in cancer therapy, even though it is still controversially discussed.

About 40 - 50% of cancer patients today receive complementary Mistletoe therapy.

Mistletoe therapy was introduced to cancer therapy in 1920 by Rudolf Steiner (founder of anthroposophic medicine).

It is usually used in combination with conventional therapy (chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery) and to prevent relapse.

Mistletoe therapy can also begin before conventional therapy.

 

epilepsy

vertigo

high blood pressure

If blood pressure is low, Mistletoe can even increase blood pressure, which at first glance sounds like a contradiction.

But since blood pressure is regulated by normalising circulation and strengthening the Heart, it is clear that Mistletoe can help both high and low blood pressure.

arteriosclerosis

cardiac insufficiency

menopausal symptoms

 

occurrence

The Mistletoe grows mostly on Fruit Frees, deciduous Trees (likely Linden Trees), more rarely on Firs or Pines.

Mistletoes that grow on Oak Trees are particularly rare - they are considered sacred.

We find Mistletoes in Europe, West Asia up to the Himalayas and North-West Africa.

In North America it is only rarely to be found.

In addition to the demands placed on certain Trees, Mistletoe also depends on a high level of humidity. It therefore occurs in river valleys, floodplains, etc..

The Mistletoe is a semi-parasite; with its anchor root it drills into the wood of the host Plant and takes water and nutrients from it.

 

 

collecting tips

The young Branches with the Leaves are collected for medicinal purposes.

The Berries are not added, as they are poisonous.

The best time to collect Misteltoe is Spring or late Autumn.

A magic date for the Mistletoe collection is the Winter Solstice, on December 21.

Attention: The Mistel is protected in some countries and therefore must not be collected!

Mistletoe as a remedy

Mistletoe plays an important role especially in cancer therapy, even though it is still controversially discussed.

About 40 - 50% of cancer patients today receive complementary Mistletoe therapy.

Mistletoe therapy was introduced to cancer therapy in 1920 by Rudolf Steiner (founder of Anthroposophic medicine).

It is usually used in combination with conventional therapy (chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery) and to prevent relapse.

Mistletoe therapy can also begin before conventional therapy.

 

Mistletoe Tea

Mistletoe Tea must always be prepared cold, as the slightly toxic substances do not dissolve in cold Water and the Tea can therefore be drunk safely, warm Water would also reduce the healing effect.

It is advisable to prepare 1 teaspoon of Mistletoe (without Berries) in about half a litre of cold Water and then let it stand for 5-10 hours before drinking it in sips.

This Mistletoe Tea helps with high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis and a 'restless heart'.

However, it can also be drunk to increase metabolism and digestion.

This Mistletoe Tea also helps with headaches and dizziness, it also strengthens the nerves and reduces menopausal symptoms.

Mistletoe seems to be a real Panacea.

 

externally as Tea

The Mistletoe cold Extract can be used externally as a compress or for baths.

It helps against varicose veins and lower leg ulcers.

Eczema can also be treated with Mistletoe treatments.

Mistletoe compresses can also be used to relieve rheumatic and neuralgic pain.

External Mistletoe treatments also help against arthrosis.

Mistletoe Tea can be snort to treat hay fever.

 

determining the age of a Mistletoe

The age of a Mistletoe can be determined very easily.

You simply count the number of Branches from the Trunk to the longest Branch.

Ideally, all Branches are the same 'length' or have the same number of forks.

This also results in the spherical appearance of the Mistletoe.

The reason is the growth behavior of the Mistletoe, it grows every Year by exactly one Branch, each with two new small Branches from a single Branch, or Bud eye.

In my experience this theory is not always correct, sometimes up to four new Branches fork off from a double knot.

Holly - Ilex aquifolium, Holly family, Stechpalme

The wonderfully shiny green, thorny Leaves of Holly are a well-known Christmas motif and we encounter them more often on decorative Christmas articles than growing wild in Nature.

The Holly is a delicate Plant.

There are both male and female varieties, yet it is a male Plant that radiates a strong, active energy.

He does not tolerate too much cold and does not like dryness.

This is why Holly is most commonly found in gardens where he is planted.

As Hedge Plants in the garden they are popular, because they form effective wind, sight and sun protection Hedges.

Growing wild, he is so rare that it is strictly protected.

The effect of Holly is somewhat controversial.

In many books he is mentioned as poisonous.

The red Berries are in any case to be classified as inedible, with the Leaves, opinions differ on this question.

Siegrid Hirsch even says that a Holly Leaf Tea can be called Europe's Mate Tea.

 

popular names

Christ-Thorn, Forest Thistle (Bush), sometimes called Palm Tree

 

Stories and Myths

During the Saturnalia, a Festival celebrated in ancient Rome at the end of December, Branches and bouquets of Holly Leaves were presented to express friendship and goodwill.

Of course, there is also a Story that connects Holly with the crucifixion of Jesus.

It is said that the Palm Branches that were scattered when Christ entered Jerusalem were transformed into Holly Branches when people called for the crucifixion of Jesus.

The thorny Branches symbolize the crown of Thorns of Jesus like hardly any other Plant and the blood-red Berries also stand for the blood of Jesus, which he shed for humanity.

To this day, the domestic shrines and the crucifix are decorated with Holly Branches.

Holly Branches attract good Nature Spirits, so a small Shrub should not be missing in the garden.

Like many other prickly Plants, Holly is of course a vibrant protective Plant.

In the past, Holly Branches were nailed to doors and gates because it was thought that all good spirits sought shelter among these Branches and thus protected the house and courtyard, where they found these branches as ken.

The Branches of the Plant were brought into the house - bound as a wreath or bouquet and decorated with red ribbons - because the good spirits of the Forest hide in them over the Winter and in return for the warm place in the good parlour protect the house and courtyard from misfortune.

 

It could protect against all evil spirits (which got caught in the Thorns) but also against lightning strikes and other negative events.

Therefore the Branches are burned during the Annual Renewal, offered to the fire as a sacrifice.

One promises to the Fire already with the hanging up that it receives the Branches and Foliage later anyway, thus does not have to take these itself by lightning strike or building fire.

The chimneys were also swept with Branches of the Holly, from which it was previously assumed that the Ancestors went in and out through them.

The Holly Branches kept this ancestral entrance pure.

The Holly stands for the God of the dark half of the Year, who was also called Holly King.

But the Holly was also in contact with the Underworld Goddess Hel. (Helheim)

 

The Holly King and his brother

A Story, which in Heathen circles belongs firmly to the Winter Solstice (Yule), is about the Holly King and the Oak King, two brothers who each reign for half a Year.

The Holly King is the king of the decreasing Year, the dark time.

He reigns after the Summer Solstice until the Winter Solstice.

On the Day of the Winter Solstice he is bid farewell with the burning of Holly Leaves, whereby he takes the darkness with him and the Days can now become longer bright again.

The Holly as a decorative Yule green is just as widespread as the Mistletoe, which is said to have similar properties.

 

characteristics and mode of action

antipyretic

cough-quenching

diuretic

antispasmodic

laxative

 

healing purposes

gout

rheumatism

fever

febrile colds - also with cough and bronchitis

As Bach Flower Extract, Holly, stands for Love.

 

occurrence

Wild Holly is extremely rare.

If we find it in the wild, it is in the undergrowth of damp Forests, which are not exposed to too much cold.

 

collecting tips

As the Holly is strictly protected, only parts of culturally cultivated Plants may be collected.

Only the very young Leaves that have not yet formed spines are used here.

You have to stand clear from the Berries as they are poisonous.

In the past, the Bark of Holly was also used as an antipyretic.

 

ingredients

bitter Ilicin, dye Ilixanthin, tannins, gums, glycosides, caffeine, vanillin, minerals, pectins

 

recipes for healing application

Holly Leaf Tea

Young Leaves are collected and dried quickly.

Pour 250ml of boiling Water over one teaspoon of the dried cabbage.

This Tea helps with fever, but also with constipation, fatigue and general weakness.

 

Holly Bark Tea

The Tea from the Bark has an even stronger antipyretic effect and was frequently used in the past.

 

a warning

The poisonous Berries of Holly were considered in the Middle Ages as an ingredient of the 'Witches' Ointments.

In general, Berries and decoctions of Leaves are often found in recipes for 'Witches' Potions, where they are said to have been used 'to cleanse the body and soul'.

Internal use can lead to severe vomiting, miscarriage, and death if improperly dosed.

 

Therefore, all parts of Holly in the magic of inexperienced handlers should only be used energetically, symbolically or decoratively - not internally or on the body - and never kept within the reach of children or pets !
