Love Potion No. 9?

astragalus balearicus, scotland, garden


Something for all of you cooking up something good for somebody!

Red-To-Orange Chakra Express

1 ounce allspice

1/4 ounce whole cloves

1 ounce cinnamon sticks

2 ounces astragalus

1 ounce nutmeg

2 ounces ginger root

1 ounce of fennel seeds

1 ounce star anise

1 ounce bay leaves

1/4 guarana (optional)

2 bottles good red wine (Beaujolais or Burgundy)

Place all herbs and spices in a large see-through container that has a tight lid. Cover with wine and refrigerate for two weeks. Strain off a wineglassful and bring the wine to room temperature or warm it over a gentle heat before drinking.

This is a ‘pre-sex enlivener’ the book describes. It suggests that you not strain the herbs and roots out, but leave them soaking and drink it as you need it. It keeps for about three years and you can replace the herbs, top up the wine–kinda like a Caribbean pepperpot. Leave out the guarana if you’re not into caffeine, use it if you really wanna be up all night, baby. Rock it….. rock it!!!!!
