Coltsfoot Will:

  • Bring a Sense of Peace
  • Induce Visions
  • Promote Tranquility

The Plant:

        Coltsfoot grows abundantly throughout Europe, Asia, and much of North America. It is a Perennial with leaves shaped like a horse’s hoof. Early in the Spring, the tall, star-shaped yellow flowers appear long before the leaves do. When young, the leaves are covered with white fuzz that easily rubs off. Before matches were readily available, the fuzz was used as tinder for lighting fires.

How to Harness Coltsfoot’s Magickal Properties:

       The dried Herb was known as English Tobacco and was often added to Shamanic smoking mixtures to facilitate Visions.

        When burned as Incense, dried Coltsfoot promotes a feeling of Tranquility, Peace & Calm.

        If you’re looking for Romance, sprinkle a small handful of the dried leaves around the outside of your home. They will help you Attract Love. You can also wear some in an amulet around your neck to attract a Relationship.

Medicinal Uses:

        Coltsfoot has been used for Centuries to treat Coughs, Colds & Asthma. Smoking the dried leaves will suppress coughing and relieve the symptoms of Asthma & Bronchitis. A tea made from boiling 2 tablespoons of dried leaves in 1 quart of water until it is reduced to a pint and then sweetened with Honey is a wonderful treatment for all the symptoms of a Cold or Flu.

Parts Used: Leaves & Flowers

Actions: Relaxing Expectorant, Anticatarrhal, Demulcent

 

How to Use:

Poultice: Chop fresh leaves in a blender or food processor, spread on gauze, and use as a Poultice for Ulcers, Sores, & Other Slow Healing Wounds.

Syrup: Add 1 lb. of Honey or Sugar to 1 pint of a strained Infusion. Bring to a boil and then simmer gently for 5 – 10 mins. to form a Syrup. Use in 1 tsp. (5 ml.) for dry, unproductive, irritating coughs or asthma.

Tincture: Use 40 drops – 1 tsp. (2-5 ml.) of leaf Tincture 3 times daily for whooping cough or bronchitis.

 

Growing Coltsfoot –

Prefers moist neutral to alkaline soil in Sun or Partial Shade. Sow seeds in Spring in a prepared seed bed, or divide clumps after the flowers, which appear before the leaves, fade, or in Autumn as the leaves die down. Extremely Invasive.

Harvesting Coltsfoot –

Gather the Flowers as soon as they open and use Fresh or Dried; Collect the Leaves when fully grown in Summer.

Growing Herbs & Veggies From Seed

Growing Herbs & Veggies From Seed

Start your plants in containers before transferring them to the garden. This really increases the survival rate of young plants. It also permits you to tighten the time between plantings. You can plant the seedlings once you have removed the old plants.

Personally I prefer to grow all my Flowers, Herbs & Veggies from seeds. I find it very therapeutic and relaxing as well as very beneficial as far as knowing that my plants have never seen a pesticide or anything that is not Natural.

I sale my Veggies & Herbs at Farmer’s Markets and use my Herbs to sale as well as make my Herbal Products with.

Growing from seed is not for everyone. Some people just don’t have the time, or room in their home, trust me I know how easy it is to run out of room when you have 10 seed starting trays around your kitchen, lol. For this reason, I also sell Flowers & Herbs that I have started from Seed and that I can certify are Organic. If you would like to purchase any Herbs, Flowers, or Veggies as small plants please send me an email at herbalist@theherbalgreenhouse.com. Plants can be shipped!!!
