10 Herbal Essentials For The Healing Temple Kitchen

0-117917497-fotolia-69860057-subscription-monthly-m

Plants and herbs are the keepers of our planet’s experience throughout time. Ultimately, all animals — including humans — return to the soil, and the plants await our demise, as our decomposition becomes their nourishment. They metabolize our lifestyles, illnesses, emotions, traumas, joys and even our thoughts.

We are reborn and we eat them, and they complete our development by nourishing us with vitamins and minerals, balancing our hormones from our ancestors’ legacies. And they certainly came first; I have lovingly named them: ourPlantcestors.

I’ve compiled 10 of my favorite healing plant herbs that are essential in my home, and their corresponding chakras to help you find optimal balance. Flower essences and spices are not mentioned here, though they’re also keepers of our wellness within the plant ally realm. 

1. Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora)

This member of the mint family, native to North America, is a nerve and mental diffuser that soothes anxiety by helping us adapt in stressful situations. This herb is a “tonic,” meaning it tones and rehabilitates the nervous system. It’s a must-have for new parents, who must master the art of adaptation.

Chakras: Solar Plexus (self-esteem + warrior energy) and Throat (expression, wisdom + communication)

2. Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare)

An aromatic and carminative flowering member of the celery family, fennel is also a galactagogue (yes, that’s a word), meaning milk-producing. Mother Earth gave us this lactation-inducing herb that bears seed, leaf and flower to help enrich the breast milk of nursing mothers. Fennel is also used as both digestive aid and antacid for the stomach. It can also help to cleanse harmful uric acid from joints, which can lead to gout.

Chakras: Sacral (emotions + confidence), Heart (love + relationships) and Throat

3. Comfrey Leaf (Symphytum officinale)

Her nickname is Boneset. She’s the old lady who lives just outside of the village, and her nature is to mend any ailment, including a broken bone. Her actions are demulcent and anti-inflammatory. Comfrey Leaf can speed wound healing, encouraging the rebuilding of cells. Burns can feel immediately soothed, and new mothers can find relief from the soreness of giving birth.

Chakra: Root (grounding + sexual energy)

4. Red Raspberry Leaf (Rubus idaeus)

If you have a uterus, you should definitely have raspberry leaf in your home! The leaves of red raspberries are the uterine tonic — strengthening and toning the muscle tissue of the womb. Tea infusions of raspberry can nourish the uterus with iron and calcium. If you’re pregnant with a baby girl, the leaves can nourish her womb, too! Also quite the astringent, raspberry is helpful with loose bowels, slowing the apana — the eliminating force in our body, aka the energy of elimination in Kundalini Yoga.

Chakras: Root and Sacral

5. Marshmallow (Althaea officinalis)

We can use the leaves and roots of marshmallow. She is the Goddess of the marshlands — full and abundant in ripeness; both demulcent and emollient. Mallow soothes, coats and brings forth comfort. Always keep it handy in case of sore throats, diarrhea, constipation and irritations.

It is an ideal herb for children, and was originally used in the manufacturing of marshmallows.

Chakras: Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Brow (intuition + memory) and Crown (wisdom, awareness + higher self)

6. Oatstraw (Avena sativa)

A potent yin of the Plantcestors, Oatstraw is an essential tonic herb for reproductive health, a remedy for impotence and even an antidepressant — this plant just makes us feel good. She smells like sweet hay just after cutting, and the color shimmers, suggesting she will make you shine from the inside out — and she does! Oatstraw is mildly sedative and can help fortify our nerve tissue with B vitamins, calcium, magnesium, proteins and more.

Oatstraw is also ideal to use when healing from addiction. Externally, it is soothing to eczema and dry skin. If you had room for only one herb, this is the one — I get turned on just by writing about it.

Chakras: Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Brow and Crown

7. Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale)

We use the flowers, leaves and roots of this happy-making maiden of early spring. Dandelion is a diuretic, and helps to cleanse our liver. Psychologically, dandelion can relieve us from stored anger, as it lubricates the energetic pathways to flow freely. Any healing regimen can begin with dandelion.

Chakra: Root

8. Hawthorn (Crataegus oxyacantha)

Hawthorn is the granter of wishes, with permission and trust. This old man of a tree offers berries, leaves and flowers known to mend broken hearts and lift depression. Hawthorn is the heart tonic of tonics and can be used to help lower blood pressure. With Hawthorn, the heart is opened, illumined and healed on an energetic level.

Chakra: Heart

9. Yarrow (Achillea millefolium)

An ace at breaking fevers, Yarrow should be kept in the medicine cabinet, as it is known to stop bleeding, both internally and externally — making it an excellent first aid remedy, as well as beneficial during menses and during cold and flu season. Yarrow possesses anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, and can be used as an astringent.

Chakra: Solar Plexus

10. Motherwort (Leonurus cardica)

A lion of a lady, this plant is a calming heart tonic, relieving muscle tension and can help lower blood pressure. It’s the big mama who holds you steady when the boat is rocking hard.

Chakras: Sacral and Solar Plexus

Directions for herbal infusions:

To infuse any of these herbs, boil cold water, then turn off the heat and add the flowers, leaves or stems of the plants.

Add one tablespoon of herbs per cup of boiling water, and steep the herbs for 12-15 minutes.

For larger batches, you can leave 4-8 hours for a deeper infusion. I like to make my infusions at night, so they are ready to drink in the morning.

You may also put cold water in a clear glass jar and make a sun tea. Just let it in the sun for 4-6 hours for a delicious gentle sun-infused herbal tea.

Directions for herbal decoctions:

You can also make a decoction from roots and berries for a more concentrated essence. Strongly simmer the roots and berries in cold water for 20 minutes, then turn off the heat and cover, leaving it to steep an additional 20 minutes.

    Q: I wish to place an order on Chakra clearing products as I am presently doing things that I perceive that will enhance my intuition, creativity, abilities of healing myself and others, my ascension abilities and other spiritual attributes. The questions are as follows: 1- Does it matter if purchase and consume the Chakra products in any order that I desire? 2- I intend to purchase the following: FIRST CHAKRA FOURTH CHAKRA #1 #1 (Healing) FIFTH CHAKRA SIXTH CHAKRA SEVENTH CHAKRA 3. I have been practicing Tibetan Rituals daily since August 15, 2006, for the purposes of balancing my Chakras and I wish to be able to discern how effectively these Tibetan Rituals are in fact balancing my Chakras as well as improving my overall health through the use of your Chakra clearing products.

    Q: I am currently taking Fibroid Buster and I would like to know should I take the elixir for the second chakra or should I take another elixir? Please explain a little more about how I can complement the different herbs with the elixirs for the chakras. I am very new to the chakra system however I understand that if your chakras are blocked it manifests itself in your physical body. I also suffer from nasal polyps and allergies. Please give me a formula that will help me best in your opinion.

    A:

    I recommend you take the 2nd Chakra elixir. The elixir helps YOU to open up your chakra. You have all the power, not the elixir. The elixir is just a tool. A closed chakra means many things and yes, it will result in some physical ailment in the area the chakra is located in.

    2nd chakra ailments deal with emotions, sexuality, and relationships. Most women are damaged in one or more or all of these things which shuts down the chakra energy and eventually manifest in some kind of female reproductive area pathology like fibroid tumors.

    In all honesty, you would do well to detox your whole body ? BE WHOLISTIC, don't isolate! Detoxing helps to open up all the chakras of the body.

    Look into the Fibroid Buster kit as well. Read some of our free articles too.

    Q: This past May my sister started to have really bad asthma attacks and allergic relations to scents, dust etc, and a horrible cough. She was told by her doctor that she had asthma and was put on asthma medication, inhalers, etc. the symptoms got worse, she couldn't sleep because she was up all night coughing, the claritin didn't work, etc. She had been complaining the past week of feeling bloated, her ankles being swollen, not being able to breath when she layed down, etc. She couldn't even walk from desk to desk at work. On the way home last week she went into the Emergency room and was admitted and stayed 4 days. We soon found out that she had congenital heart failure and only 25% of her heart is pumping properly. She couldn't breath because of the water build up on her lungs and heart. The doctors said that the build up of antibodies in her system showed that she had contracted EB virus some years ago and it permanently damaged her heart. She is limited to only 64 ounces of water a day, takes water pills, blood pressure pills, and is not allowed to eat foods high in sodium. My question is, is there any herbs or vitamins that can be used to help her heart? I do not want her to get a pace maker or have a heart transplant. The medications that she is on now make her so weak and drowsy. I know the doctors said the heart damage is permanent, but I just need to know is there anything else that would help naturally?

    A:

    The heart failure is only permanent if you guys (especially your sister) BELIEVE so! What is believed is achieved! It's nothing but medical BS if you ask me!

    To CURE her heart condition, I would suggest she:

    1. Perform the Full Body Detox (absent any pharmaceutical drugs, but it is your sister's choice to stay on them or get off of them)

    2. While on the FBD, drink 2-4 cups of Hawthorn Berry tea

    3. After the FBD, she needs to take CARDIOVASCULAR Formula (3 capsules 2 times daily), CIRCUL-AID formula (3 capsules once daily), and BOWEL MOVER (3 capsules before bed every night).

    A: You can use multiple Elixirs at the same time. Just be sure to allow time in between taking each one. We suggest meditating with the use of the elixirs, focusing on clearing one emotion at a time.  If you're looking to cleanse your aura and protect yourself emotionally we would recommend looking into the Chakras and Aura Sprays we have available. We would recommend doing the Respiratory Cleanse and Regimen to help improve the health of your lungs.  This regimen includes a Mucus Formula that helps combat mucus in the body.  You can also add the Anti-Viral Formula to your regimen to help your lungs if it has been affected by a virus.  All of our products are 100% all natural plant life herbs. We do not use any kind of unnatural ingredients including animal products, gluten, GMO, binders or fillers.  We offer products that are safe for elderly, children and adults.  Adjusting her diet would be the best thing to help remedy her conditions.  We suggest giving her the Full Body Cleanse to detox and replenish the health of all the major organs including the heart and kidney's.  Suggesting the Clearing Emotions Elixir to your husband could help clarify any lingering emotions he may have.   We recommend reading our article - Respiratory Health https://www.dherbs.com/articles/wellness-prevention/respiratory-health/ Product Links: Full Body Cleanse - http://dherbs.com/store/full-body-cleanse-p-1.html Respiratory Cleanse and Regimen - http://www.dherbs.com/store/respiratory-cleanse-and-regimen-p-204.html Mucus Formula - http://www.dherbs.com/store/mucus-Formula-formula-p-50.html Lungs & Respiratory Formula - http://www.dherbs.com/store/lungs-respiratory-formula-p-45.html Anti-Viral Formula - http://www.dherbs.com/store/antiviral-formula-p-6.html Chakra Elixirs #1-7 - https://www.dherbs.com/store/chakra-elixirs-c-6.html Aura Sprays - https://www.dherbs.com/store/aura-sprays-c-48.html

    Q: I have been anemic since my cycle started age 11. In the year 2001 I had the first tranfusion and found out that I had fibroids. At that time they were small. It took three years later to find out that you can shrink them and disolve them from a book called healing fibroids a natural cure. I have always been a heavy bleeder but in 2004 the bleeding got worse where i had to leave work to go to the emergency room. I got IV fliud and was told this is my normal period. I never had to go to the hospital because of bleeding too much. Any way in 2001 I was on the pill and taking iron 3* a day 325ml. Got off the pill because of the weight gain and was still bleeding hard due to everyday stress. 2006 I had two more transfusions with in 5 months of each other. All the doctors want to do is cut me. I refuse. After the last transfusion, I decided to get iron through IV. What a dissaster. The hospital gave me too many things at once. I was fine when I got home but, at 11pm I could not sleep too well. I began having heart palpitations. Rushed to the ER in such pain, I was in pain to stand up, in pain to sit down. I had to pace the floor and sit down and get back up again several times. The intense pain did not stop until I stood bent over my mother's lap for 10 mins. It stopped at 4:30am. Well they kept me for four days. Every test and xray done on me and they found nothing wrong with my heart. Good. But what on earth caused the pain. I have not been able to work for the past 3 years. Every time my cycle starts I lose a lot of blood, I am weak, I can't walk like a normal person and my heart is always pounding hard at every little movement I make. I blacked out in the shower in 2007. I am currently taking cold pressed wheat germ oil to put oxygen in my blood and to stop the pain in my chest. I look worn, my skin from head to toe is covered in scars, and I have no finger nails and my hair is greying all over. I am 36 and I am literally half dead. Can any of your products help me get me up off the couch and walking like a normal person again.

    A:

    Beloved, I recommend that you first perform the FULL BODY DETOX. After this kit, I recommend that you perform the FIBRIOD BUSTER CLEANSE AND REGIME. After this kit I recommend that you perform the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. After this kit, I recommend that you perform the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE followed by the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. While performing all these cleanses above, when drinking water make sure you add KHEMETIAN GOLD and OXY-DROPS to every glass of water you drink. In addition to performing these kits, please read our FREE articles and begin to properly educate yourself. There is healing from all that you suffer from!

    Q: Dear Yogi, I read an article on your site about reverse Kundalini (anal sex). I don't know if you can answer my question or not - originally I was going to pose it to "Ask the Guru", but in my limited understanding, Kundalini is tied into yoga. I have been trying to get balanced by meditating, living my passions, writing, art, and belly dancing all unprofessionally, except for the first one (on a very small scale). I have been doing guided chakra meditations and other things, including yoga, and some dietary modifications. I feel I am gradually growing and living my purpose. However, incrementally starting in my mid forties. Anyway, I have been on this path for a couple of years now, and have more happiness and peace than I ever have. I don't want to get into a lengthy essay about my limited understanding of Kundalini, and the possibility of what I perceive is going on with my body (though I am very healthy) right now, so I will attempt to get to the point. I am grateful for my life. I have much more than many people if I were to measure. I feel like I am still blocked, though. About three years ago I dated a guy who sodomized me one time. He was a rapist, long story short and an error in judgement on my part. Though my intuition was screaming at me the whole time. I look at the experience as pushing me further along my path and teaching me to trust, love, respect myself, and defend my boundaries. What concerns me is that I feel that experience is still trapped within me to a degree, and I am worried that it will manifest into a disease. Often when I meditate on my root chakra I start crying. Part of me believes that I can't force anything, just have to let the process unfold in its own time. There is so much info out there that I find it overwhelming, and it is hard to know which to trust. So I have just been going with what resonates with me as far as technique. If you could offer me any advice, I would be grateful.

    A:

    Hello, I would like to first thank you for sharing your story and your experience. It sounds like you are devoting time and attention to the many things, that will help foster a sustained health and healing for you in life. As you have recognized, it is very helpful for us to take intuition very seriously and to honor this innate ability to discern whether a situation will be harmful or beneficial to our growth and experience as humans. Very often the circumstances and challenges presented to us in life, as happened in yours, serve as great teachers in allowing us to witness our own great strength, compassion, and value. I am glad to hear that you have been able to take the very difficult situation you found yourself in and use your experience to create a better understanding of yourself in the process. While it is true that we tend to develop patterns of holding and habitual ways of holding tension within the body; this does not mean that there are not steps you can take to move through such a body, mind, and spirit experience. The fact that you are crying upon meditating on your root chakra is a sign that you have made yourself available to the grief that naturally accompanies traumatic situations such as the one you experienced. Keep in mind that when we deeply grieve, our bodies are able to express the energy that may have potentially been repressed during this experience. The energy of the root chakra is all about our ability to feel safe, strong, and supported. The violation of this energy can leave one feeling ungrounded and striving for our self-preservation. Try not to become fixated on the worries you are having about the experience arising as disease in your body, as worrying can lead to increased levels of chronic stress, which will potentially create an internal environment more vulnerable to disease - which is what you are trying to avoid. It might be nice for you to meditate on your right to be here, to exist on this planet, and to be valued. It may also be very nice for you to take some restorative yoga classes, which can be grounding and stimulating to the parasympathetic nervous system (assists in the healing process). Recognize that the body may be holding energy in a direct response to a real threat, but begin to create a safe, loving and supportive environment to allow yourself to begin to be able to let go of this holding as you feel safe. When working to heal the first chakra, it is helpful to get in touch with the direct experience of the sensations of the body and become aware of the physical experience of the body. This can be done with the assistance of an expert, to help you change the physical expression of your felt experience. We could also do something called "body dialogue" to put you more deeply in touch with what the physical expression you are experiencing has to teach you about how you are inhabiting the world you are in. There are also many forms of grounding exercises which can help to balance the first chakra. If you are interested in being lead through a series of guided meditations, please contact me at megan@ritualwellbeing.com. Namaste, Megan

    Q: Is there an herb or herbs that will help one's body fight the effects of this upcoming allergy season? I've stop eating the meat and the dairy, but the mucus keeps draining in my throat.

    Q: Hello Dherbs.com, I really appreciate your site and making these herbs available to all. I have recently had an abnormal pap smear due to HPV and take lysine because of cold sores around mouth area (had problem since a little girl w/these). I am 27 on medication for bipolar schizoaffective disorder, which causes fatigue, dementia, and more. I'm looking for an alternate way to cope and heal the body. I've tried the master cleanse, I fast, and have changed to a healthier diet. I also take B- complex vitamins and drink herbal teas. I would like to try some of your products that would help to heal my conditions. I do not know if I should ask my doctor to take me off the meds before trying herbs, but this is a struggle for me, because my insight and judgment has decreased since I have been on pharmaceuticals. Someday I just want to cry, but I understand the joy and suffering that is a part of life. Are there any recommendations that to help heal my diseases.

    A:

    First of all we would highly suggest you schedule a consultation so we can decipher or decode the emotional root of your problems because the problems lies here. Okay, now for the meds. Drugs can't heal you, Beloved! No part of your body is made up from drugs. God didn't use drugs to make you. The drugs are enhancing your problems if not outright causing them. Give Nature a try! We would suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOX followed by the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. Clearly there are some emotional imbalances that have resulted in physical disease. Depression speaks from the soul. Are you listening? You can heal, beloved! You CAN heal!

    Q: I would like to know if you have any herbal product that tightened and strengthens a dropped uterus and cervix in the vagina? Is there any product that I can douche with to tighten this area and problem. I called a local herb shop that I have purchased herbs for years before buying from dherbs and the owner said she has Wild Alum Root Powder that I can douche with to help tighten the uterus and etc., but I wanted to know if you have a good herbal formula product to douche and one that I can take. I am trying to avoid sugery. I have started having back pains in my lower back areas that extend to my right and left sides and periodic tummy pains which the nurse at the clinic where I go to be checked said this is generally the symptoms when a woman has a lapsed or dropped uterus and cervix. This also causes bladder control problems as well. Please tell me what you advise and what products that you believe will help me with these issues specifically, the dropped uterus and cervix problems. I have already purchase #3 products from you about a month ago: The CARDIO-VASCULAR FORMULA, the COLON FORMULA and the TUMOR BUSTER EXTRACT for the tumor that the doctors say is in one of my adrenal glands. I have had some good results from the Cardiovascular product. in helping me keep my blood pressure down.

    A:

    For prolapsed uterus I recommend that you first perform the FULL BODY DETOX followed by the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. You can use our FEMALE HEALTH TEA as a douche solution and douche with it. After your cleanses you should take 3 capsules daily of our ADRENALIZER FORMULA.

    Q: How are you? I see you will be in the Atlanta area soon. Anywho... I finished both Detoxes. waiting on the results from the test. I am doing maintenance now. Being that I am a single mom this healing process has been hard finically. But it is well worth it. I bought the ANTI-VIRAL FORMULA (taking 3x per day), I bought the RAINFOREST TONIC TEA ( wow) and I couldn't afford the immune booster so I am taking a store brand. So..here is what I am feeling now. Lower back still has a discomfort, I little piece of my heel is still numb and the slightest noise makes me jump. I wanted to know if the nerve pills will help with the jumping and also my back. I am taking the sulper for the lower back discomfort but not a major difference yet. Also as I am typing this note to you..my left arm feels like a burning feeling. When I rub it I feel the sensation. Do I need to get the iron pills or blood & lym. pills? I hope to hear from you soon.

    A:

    I'd recommend NERVES FORMULA as well as CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM FORMULA. Consider seeing a chiropractic as well. If you can't afford capsules, consider drinking the herbal teas.

    Q: I am taking more than 20-30 herbal supplements a day and am wondering if it's okay to mix or take all of them at the same time.

    Q: I gave birth a week ago and am at home recovering. I feel like this was the healthiest pregnancy up until I was hit by another car who ran a red light. I was 34 weeks at that time. In the emergency room I did not know until afterwards that they injected me with steroids to speed up the development of the baby's lungs. This caused crazy side effects and at 37 weeks I had to give birth. She is fine, a little jaundice, but overall she is doing better than my first two children. I believe it has much to do with the fact that I took your pregnancy and calcium supplements. Thank You. My question to you is what should I be taking now? I am breast feeding and want to make sure that we are both going to be fine with what I ingest. Also, ever since the accident I have craved sugar. I have not been able to stop snacking. I would also like to point out that my hair fell out with my last pregnancy. I would like to avoid that as well. Thank you for listening and advising.

    A:

    10-DAY ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD CLEANSE! After the cleanse, take SUGAR BUSTER Formula every morning or before you eat anything sweet! Congrats on the new birth!

    Q: That's good to know. I would much rather take herbs for the rest of my life, than medication for the rest of my life. What herbs can I take for my high blood pressure? Also, will the herb for high blood pressure affect the herb bunny rabbit? Thanks for your time. I am trying to place my order as soon as possible.

    A:

    Don't see herbs like drugs! Herbs will not affect one another like drugs will. Take CARDIO-VASCULAR FORMULA and CIRCUL-AID FORMULA for High Blood Pressure.

    Q: I have a fried who was told he has a heart murmur, and a small hole in his heart that is leaking. He needs to get surgery to get the whole closed up, or else it can get worst. He has severe chest pains, and his right shoulder hurts him constantly. They say it is because no blood is pumping to his arm at a steady rate because of his heart. He does not have health insurance and wants to avoid the medications and surgery. He has lost weight so what do you recommend? Full Body Detox? The only thing with that is it says you will lose 10-50 pounds he cant afford to losse to much weight. Could you explain? And would this help him a great deal? Also me personally would like to do the Full Body Detox just for overall health reasons and it seems to be a great cleanse. Im only 120 pounds will this make me loose a lot of weight? I cant afford it either. Please advise.
