Life Everlasting Flower
  • Herb which was tied up in a cloth bag.
  • Has been used as a vermifuge.
  • In powder form was used for hemorrhage.
  • Has been used externally for tumors and contusions.
  • From Gerarde's Herbal (1600's) (emphasis mine): The herb boiled in strong lye cleaned the hair of nits and lice. Used in wardrobes it repelled moths. Boiled in wine and drunk, it would kill intestinal worms. Was considered good medicine for bitings and stingings of "venomous beasts".
  • Smoking the herb or inhaling the smoke of the burning herb was at one time considered good for coughs of the lungs or headache.
  • The Montagnais used a decoction for coughing, consumption, and stomach sickness.
  • Mohegans steeped and drunk the infusion for colds.
  • Chippewas made a decocotion of the flowers mixed with wild mint and then sprinkled on hot stones for paralysis.
  • Mohawks used the herb for asthma as an infusion of the flowers made together with mullein root.
  • The Tete de Boule boiled the flowers and used the resulting decoction by applying it to burns and dermatitis.
  • The Tete de Boule boiled the flowers and used the resulting decoction by applying it to burns and dermatitis.

Used for diseases of sheep.

Excellent everlasting material for dried arrangements.

The Cheyenne considered it to be "strong medicine". They dropped the leaves on hot coals and the smoke was used to purify gifts which were left on a hill for the sun or spirits. Before going into battle each man chewed a little of it and rubbed it over his body, arms and legs to impart strength, energy and dash, which would, they believed, protect them from danger.
The Forest Potawatomi smoked the dried flowers in a pipe or smudged them on coals to drive evil spirits out of the sick room. The plant was also used as a charm against witches. The dried tops were placed on a pan of live coals...the fumes supposedly would hurt the eyes of evil spirits and keep them away.

Making Tinctures Title
Making tinctures is an easy and inexpensive way to make your own medicine!

What is a tincture? A tincture, also called a plant extract, is a herbal preparation made by steeping plant material in alcohol. As it steeps (for several weeks) the alcohol draws out all of the medicinal qualities of the plant which include alkaloids, volatile oils and resins. Alcohol based tinctures can last for several years and are a convenient way to preserve your medicinal herbs.

Because tinctures are concentrated a typical dosage is 15 drops 3 times a day so making a pint or quart of plant extract can go a long way!
To get started you will need:
  1.     A quart or pint canning jar
  2.     Your herb of choice (fresh is best but dried will work)
  3.     100 proof vodka (usually the best choice but some herbalists prefer brandy)
  4.     A label for your jar

FRESH HERB TINCTURE When using fresh plant material be aware of where you are getting it from! Do not pick plants that have been sprayed with chemicals or ones along roadsides where they can pick up many toxins. Make sure you pick at the proper time for that particular plant and that it is healthy and pest-free.

DRIED HERB TINCTURE To make a tincture with dried herbs the process is identical except that you will only need to fill your jar 1/3 full of plant material. Dried herbs are convenient because they are always available from a good, organic herb store.

NOTE ABOUT BARK AND ROOT TINCTURES When making tinctures from bark and root herbs use the same ratio as you would for either fresh or dried herbs but make sure to use at least 100 proof alcohol! Root and bark herbs are a little tougher to draw out the medicinal qualities so you need the strong stuff!

Once you have your fresh plant material the step are simple.

  1. Simply chop or tear the leaves, roots, flowers or bark (depending on plant) and fill your jar but do not pack it in.
  2. Pour the vodka or brandy in to fill the jar and cover the herb.
  3. Tightly screw the lid on the jar and shake gently
  4. Label your jar with the date, the herb and the type of menstrum (alcohol)
  5. Store your jar in a DARK place for six weeks!
  6. After six weeks your tincture is ready. Strain out the plant material and put some in an amber dropper bottle (don't forget to label this too) and continue to store the excess in a cool, dark place.

Making tinctures is that simple!

When making tinctures with vegetable glycerin instead of alcohol, these are called glycerides. The glycerin is usually not as effective in drawing out the plant qualities but they are a good choice if you wish to avoid alcohol or use for your children or pets.

Here's a few uses for herbal tinctures:

To fight virus's use herbs such as ginger root, elderberry, lemon balm, St. John's Wort (cautions with this one!), oregano or licorice root (not for those with high blood pressure). My favorite anti-viral tincture is elderberry. Whenever I feel a cold coming on I'll take a teaspoon of elderberry tincture in some hot water with honey about 3 times a day. This has worked every time for me!

Take a tincture of lemon balm, chamomile?, hops, catnip, lemon verbena, passion flower or valerian at night to cure insomnia. You may recognize these herbs from calming herbal teas.

Try a tincture made from chamomile., willow bark, skullcap, Valerian or wood betony.

Use herbs such as Pau D' Arco, Red clover, Yellow Dock, Burdock, Sarsaparilla, Dandelion, Cascara Sagada or Buckthorn. For blood cleansing a normal dosage is 15-30 drops three times a day.

Always seek the advise of a physician before starting an herbal treatment if you have a medical condition or are on prescription medication! Do your homework on the herbs themselves also!

Information hwy title

The pendulum is basically an amplifier. It is a tool that helps you to access the collective unconscious and your Higher Self. You can get answers to anything you can come up with.

Every one is basically capable of working with the pendulum. Learning to work with it is like learning to play an instrument. It requires constant practice and experimentation  Making mistakes is part of the learning process. The results you get will reflect your stage of spiritual/mental development.

You should not use the pendulum for egoistic reasons. Use it only for the well being of others or yourself.

Swinging the pendulum requires that you be undivided and totally present in the moment.


Depending what are they used for, they can be for: healing specific illnesses, for adjusting chakras, teleradiesthesia (distance healing, map dowsing).

They can also be: Simple: tear drop, ball-shaped, conical, spiral, made from brass, copper, crystal, wood, ceramic.

Or with their own radiation: Universal Pendulum, Osiris, Isis, Karnak, Mer-Isis, Atlantis...


When selecting a pendulum follow your intuition and choose one that you like. You can make a pendulum yourself if you take a thread and hang a weigh on it which can be any object you like. The thread can be 15 to 20 cm long. Tie a knot in the thread at the length where the swing of the pendulum feels the best.


You can ask about anything you like with the pendulum if the question can be answered with YES or NO. But first you have to determine what each pendulum movement means for you.

Take a seated position at a desk or table. Place you feet flat on the floor resting your elbow on the desk. Hold the pendulum by the end of chain between your thumb and index finger. Make sure that your upper body and back are straight, that the energy can flow freely. Put your other hand flat on the table. Relax. Let your breath flow calmly. Make sure before you start that you will be un-distracted. Do not swing the pendulum when you are tired.
Hold your pendulum over the center of the illustration shown below and you ask:  "What does a YES look like?"  than "What does a NO look like?"

The pendulum can turn in the following directions: up-down, left-right or in a circle.

 Practice several times a day for at least a week. Once you have determined your YES and NO do not deviate from it. When you programmed your pendulum test it. Prove to yourself that it really works. Ask questions you already know the answer. Otherwise always assume an unattached and unbiased attitude.
When you have determined a clear Yes and No, ask your pendulum how it swings for
"I do not want to answer or "I can not answer that."

REMEMBER: a correct answer will follow only when the question is asked in the right way.


You should test your pendulum for accuracy before you begin to work. Use a numbered chart 1-100% and ask how accurate your pendulum is. The ideal would be 100%. If it is below 60% do not swing the pendulum, ask about the reasons or try some other time when rested and calm.
REMEMBER: the answer you get refer to the present moment only. It can partially or completely change at another time or place.


You can place your pendulum directly over an object and test it. You may want to test your water, groceries, medications, gemstones, flower remedies, determine what therapies are good for you by writing down the name of couple of them. You can test the energy of your house, evaluate your sleeping space, and more.

In order to work easier with the pendulum, you can work with charts, like the Meditation Techniques, Color, Past and Future Life, Homeopathy, Aromatherapy Oils, Tea or Chakra Chart, just to mention a few.
