I think by now it's pretty obvious I have a thing for tea. I think most witches do, partly for the experience and flavor, and partly due to the magical and medicinal properties that come with it. Tea is a great way to use herbs in your practice with many of them offering so much more than their magical correspondences. Tea magic is incredibly simple and can be used to manifest and banish pretty much anything if done correctly. However, tea also heals and relaxes, and, depending on the recipe, can be used to help you reach an altered state of consciousness required for hedge riding. Use this tea recipe below to help you do just that!

Hedge Riding Tea

1 tsp dried lavender 
1 tsp dried rosemary 
2 tsp dried mugwort honey or another sweetener to taste 

Begin by grinding the dried herbs together. Place in a tea ball and combine with 1 cup hot water and sweetener. Let steep for 10 minutes, stirring clockwise occasionally. As you do so, chant "draught of night, bring me flight." Consume prior to hedge riding. 

Lavender helps you relax and be open to traveling, rosemary enhances memory to help you recall the journey and improves circulation, allowing the herbs to work faster, and mugwort is a known mild psychedelic that will help you reach an altered state of consciousness. Mugwort is the key ingredient here. This isn't the best-tasting tea in the world, but it works.

  1. I certainly enjoy a good cup of tea. I've recently gotten into making my own blends, largely thanks to my Apothecary at Home subscription. I'm excited to try this recipe!

  2. Tremendously lovely. Thank you for sharing this wonderful tea blend recipe with us, dear Willow. Call me odd (I swear, I don't mind in most contexts), but I kinda like the taste (and absolutely love the scent) of mugwart. ๐Ÿ˜„
