Jarrah Leaf

Eucalytpus marginata

1:3 Brandied Spagryic Tincture of wild-harvested Jarrah Leaf, with purified salt principle added.
Planetary Ruler: Moon

Physical properties*:
Like all Eucaplyts Jarrah is antibacterial and antifungal, though it is somewhat uniquely effective against Candida glabrata – which conventional antifungals are not so effective against. Jarrahs affinity with the moon is manifest in its ability to anesthetise and also act as a neuromodulator, it also contains limonene which is a mild sedative and anti-cancer particularly in the breasts and pancreas. Like other Eucalypts it contains eucalyptol, which is an effective remedy for relieving colds, flus, nasal congestion and coughs (particularly where sinuses are infected or inflamed) – it will aid in expectoration in all of these cases. It is also effective against infectious diarrhoea (dysentery). 

Emotional/Spiritual Properties:
Jarrah is an herb with much force, the trees grow persistently in rocky, dry West Australian land scapes, its roots penetrate and crack apart hard earth to seek water deep below. Jarrah is thus a medicine for finding deep truth, a medicine for sorting through superfluous thoughts and a chaos of conditions to pluck for and push the real reality in to all parts of our being. It bequeaths a feeling of spinal centring (particularly the bark) which most noticeably expands the lungs deeply as it moves awareness down the spine, rebalancing consciousness from the mind, back into the rest of the being. There can be a feeling of release at the atlas point, though sometimes it has also caused ache here (potentially due to sudden detoxification of brain matter).

Allies: Parsley (for rounding the sharp edges of Jarrahs intensively cleansing properties), Rosemary (for cleansing the mind).

Jarrah contains  a-pinene which can cause skin eruptions, delirium, ataxia and kidney damage – taking spagyrically prepared Jarrah in doses appropriate for spagyrics (5-10 drops 3 times a day) will most likely negate the occourence of these side-effects, though if you notice your body reacting adversely, cease use immediately. And if planning to recommence use, do so with a reduced dose and caution.

Contraindications not researched or available specifically for Jarrah, but:
-Medications that are changed by the liver may be accelerated in their uptake by the body due to the limonene present in Jarrah, some of these include:
Diclofenac (Cataflam, Voltaren), ibuprofen (Motrin), meloxicam (Mobic), and piroxicam (Feldene), amitriptyline (Elavil), warfarin (Coumadin), glipizide (Glucotrol), losartan (Cozaar), and others.
