Let’s face it. In this crazy AF world we live in, we can become pretty scattered. Our minds are out in the world doing a bazillion different things instead of being clear, focused, and grounded. So here to help are five herbs for grounding.
It doesn’t matter if you are trying to balance college courses, job, and dating or momdom and peace of mind or menopause and just maintaining your train of thought because hormones have sent your brain on what seems like a permanent vacation. We all need a little help sometimes (hello, like every day). These five herbs are a great way to get you balanced and grounded.
So What Happens When We Aren’t Grounded?
Well, our root chakra gets F’d up (that’s a technical term). Our root chakra, which is where our sense of stability, safety, and balance comes from, becomes imbalanced and sometimes blocked. Which can cause adrenal fatigue, urinary tract infections, lower back pain, and did I mention adrenal fatigue??? All that running around like a chicken with its head cut off can be so exhausting! This is why we need herbs for grounding!
So What Helps You Become More Grounded?
Energy work, crystals, kundalini yoga, and herbs. Specifically, the Herbs for Grounding Pack (*choir of angels sing). This is a set of my Top 5 Grounding Herbs-to make simple teas, mojo bags, candle spells from, or whatever else your brilliant mind can think of!
5 Herbs for Grounding
This herb’s bright red color aligns with the root chakra, and the energy definitely helps stimulate a slow chakra. Magickally, use it for protection and strength. It also acts as a booster for other herbs being used. A must-have for your herb cabinet.
This “weed” is perfect for cleansing your kidneys and is highly beneficial for properly working adrenals. It is a must-have for getting you aligned and grounded. Making a simple tisane (herbal tea) is the best way to go. If you do, you will want to steep your tea for at least 20 minutes while covered. Magickally, it is used for wishes, divination, and calling upon spirits.
Nettle is another very healing and cleansing herb. It is incredibly grounding and healing for men and their prostate. Nettle tea is another excellent way of grounding and centering yourself. Used magickally to remove curses and helps with exorcisms.
Ah, rosemary. Just the smell alone can bring your focus inward and downward, helping to center and ground you. Using rosemary as an essential oil or as a mojo bag kept on hand for a whiff is the best way to utilize it for this purpose. Magickally, rosemary does it all-good health, love spells, nightmare prevention, purification, removing negativity, and cleansing.
Good ole sage. When I say this, I mean less of wild white sage and more of the garden variety (Salvia Officinalis). While burning sage types that are non-garden are beneficial for grounding, drinking or eating garden sage is also very helpful and has healing qualities. Prosperity, protection, healing, and deeper wisdom are magickal traits of sage.
That wraps it up for my top five fave herbs for grounding. Are there more herbs you can use for grounding and/or healing your root chakra? Sure. These are just my top 5 because they can be easily consumed via teas or seasonings AND used in magic, which is a win/win for me.
