If You Could Have Anything for Yule From the Entire Universe and the Cost Did Not

Witches Of The Craft®

What would it be? For me it would be enough money to buy each of my 5 children homes big enough for their families or pay off the mortgage if they have so ready found their dream home. Then to pay off all my husband and my debts. Move to Ohio but 30 acres of pristine wood land to build a Main House and than some bunk bed cabins to have a place to use for Sabbat rituals.

While this song does have the words Merry Christmas in it this could be changed to Beautiful Yule or something similar.

It’s a very cute song I think especially sung by a child for you listening please…

All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth

Marshmallow Root

This plant has been used as food and medicine in Africa for more than 2000 years.

The Greek physician Hippocrates valued it as a wound treatment because if it’s anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Grow

Slow growing plant that is to be sown in autumn, place in trays under a glass, simply recreate a small greenhouse. In spring they should be large enough to plant leaving 45cm between them.

Marshmallow flowers in its second year and develops roots a few years before it is harvested. With the flowers you could make flower essence, a beautiful energy medicine.

I will at some stage write up some basic information for how to make your own flower essence.

Try

In Roman time it was used to stuff sucking pigs. In the meantime if one is not at hand (lol) you could simply boil the marshmallow roots until soft, peel them and fry in butter. It makes a wonderful addition to any vegetable or even meat.

And my favorite…….

Herbal marshmallow Hot Chocolate:

  • 3/4 oz of Marshmallow root dried
  • 9 cups milk (raw is best!)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder (good quality)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Method:

  1. In a saucepan, heat up milk and marshmallow root. Allow to infuse for 30 minutes without bringing to a boil but still very hot. Once complete, strain out marshmallow root (if you did not use a tea bag or tea infuser) and return milk to hot saucepan.
  2. Add sugar, melt, and combine completely.
  3. Add cocoa powder and stir until completely combined.
  4. Add vanilla extract, combine well.
  5. Serve warm with homemade whipped cream or marshmallows . . . the big fluffy kind.

It’s that easy! Serve these delicious hot cocoa on cold winter days after playing outside in the snow, when fighting a cold, or just as a general respiratory health booster for you and your family!

Heal

The leaves are used in tinctures, capsules and teas. They can alleviate a sore throat and dry coughs that occur in the winter months. Teas are wonderful for indigestion, capsules may assist with digestive issues.

As a powerful mucilage plant Marshmallow works wonders in hot chocolate, the recipe is provided above.

Magick

Gathered beneath the full moon this herb can be used to encourage creative energy. As an herb for the dead it can be used for ancestral ceremonies or grown on the graves of the dead.

Burn the dried root to improve psychic abilities and protection.

This herb falls under the planet Venus. I have correlated magickal correspondences for this planet if you choose to use this root for its magick.
