Prabhava of the Plants:
In Sanskrit Prabhava is translated as the 'specific action' of a plant....but I like to think of it as the plants SUPER POWER!
- Calendula (Calendula officinalis): Calendula is an alterative, which means it opens up the channels of elimination. In the winter time our bodies tend to get a little sluggish and heavy. Calendula is a wonderful ally for this time of year because it keeps everything flowing clearly through its ability to move the lymph and cleanse the blood. It is also a gentle immune tonic through its ability to keep the fires of digestion strong, clear away any stagnation, and keep the channels of elimination open. In medical astrology, Calendula is ruled by the Sun. I love to include this herb in my winter time remedies because these bright yellow flowers are a reflection of the light of the Sun. During the dark days of winter, depression and lethargy can settle in, and Calendula is here to remind us of the light within and without and that even in our darkest days, the light will always return once more.
- Nettles (Urtica dioica): Nettles have a strong action on the blood, they build the blood through their rich nutrient content while also cleansing and detoxifying the blood. Nettles are also a nutritive tonic that is rich in iron, potassium, vitamin C, calcium, chlorophyll, and protein. These vital nutrients help nourish the body and keep it strong...all winter long!
- Burdock Root (Articum lappa): Burdock is a digestive bitter that stimulates the digestive tract, liver, and gallbladder. It increases the secretion of bile which promotes better absorption of fats and oils. Burdock is a nutritive tonic and has long been used in Europe and Asia as a root vegetable in soups, stir fry's, and bone broths. Burdock is another alterative remedy and is well known as a blood purifier. It also stimulates lymphatic circulation, which helps to keep our immunity strong, as the lymph plays an important role in our immune function.
- Astragalus Root (Astragalus membranaceus): Astragalus is an adaptogenic herb and powerful immune tonic. It builds up the overall vital force within the body, and specifically works to build + balance the adrenals and the neuroendocrine system. It is an antioxidant due to its flavonoid content. It also helps to protect and restore the liver.
Rosemary, Ginger, and Rainbow Peppercorn: All three of these herbs are energetically warming. This helps to keep the Agni, or digestive fire, stoked throughout the colder months of the year. They also help to keep the immunity strong and ward off illness. They are also all carminative herbs and will help alleviate any digestive symptoms.
