“It is folly to ignore the sacred in life or medicine,” writes Rosita Arvigo. “Skirting the spiritual has had a shattering effect on every dimension of contemporary existence. ”

No one works alone in healing, and on this 20th Anniversary, we at Red Moon Herbs want to publicly acknowledge and honor the spirit of the plants that make this work possible.

We give deep gratitude to the Spirits of the plants who have inspired and blessed us over the years. As our allies, you have woven into our lives, our medicines, our hearts–chickweed, dandelion, hawthorne, nettles, burdock, yarrow, and many more dear friends!

Whenever wildcrafting or harvesting, most traditions invoke a prayer or chant. Below is one of our favorite songs that can be sung to engage and connect to the spirits of the plant. (Click for the melody)

 

The spirit of the plants has come to me in the form of a beautiful dancing green woman

Her eyes fill me with peace, her dance fills me with peace

The spirit of the plants has come to me and has blessed me with great peace 

Her eyes fill me with peace, her dance fills me with peace
