Searing hot temperatures have a way of sapping the energy right out from one’s body. The following energy potion can help replace this lost energy. Brew pinches of mint and ginseng herbs along with a green tea bag. Steep for three minutes. Strain and serve over ice with lemon slices for a refreshing tonic.

In addition, you may wish to take Solomon’s seal, Gotu Kola, and myrrh herbal supplement tablets to rev up flagging energy levels. Once restored, seal the energy inside the body by taking a cool shower and rubbing a rosewater and glycerin solution into wet skin. As you do so, visualize the energy vibrating just below the skin’s surface. Carry this vision with you throughout the day. Most importantly, make sure to drink plenty of water to keep the body hydrated and functioning at its highest level.

Take a glazed pan half full of olive oil. Put in sweet mint leaves bruised. Place pan in hot water bath. Stir occasionally. After four or five hours pour into linen bag and squeeze grease through into pot again and fill with fresh leaves. Repeat until grease is strongly scented.

Do same with marjoram, thyme and pounded dried patchouli leaves, if you have them (for they be best of all). When strongly scented, mix all the oils together and keep in a well-stoppered jar.

Herbs can be mixed and combined to produce a “recipe” that’s just right for each of us. Since the Sun sign you were born under has such an amazing influence on your health and well-being, using the herbs that correspond with that sign alone can be a tremendous help in times of stress or illness. Here’s a short list of herbs that seem to be tailor-made due to their associations with both the planetary ruler and the positive qualities of this sign.

  • Comfrey,
  • Horsetail,
  • Mint,
  • Poppy,
  • Sassafras,
  • Woodruff.

Capricorn has always been described as a very “focused” sign, intent on self-sufficiency and material success. The influence of your planet, Saturn, gives you the ambition and self-discipline to attain those goals, and to ensure success and prosperity in business matters, too. Each of the herbs mentioned above are known for their ability to attract that success, and most can be mixed together in a tea.
