Spiritual Properties:
There are some of us who experience a lot of momentum behind our emotions, they may be like strong tides that pull us to-and-fro in a way that causes us to feel unanchored, and at the mercy of life. With Ladies Mantle we are thrown a life-jacket – or maybe sent out a beautiful wooden boat- in or upon which we can gain clarity and learn to sail or swim with the currents of life, and our inner world. One such place where humans generate lots of emotional intensity is in relationships, more so in romantic/intimate relationships; this tonifying herb enables greater clarity around relating… the waters that flow between two people become clearer as all involved begin to transcend their stories and attachments that may ‘bog down’ a relationship, or limit the enjoyment of intimate relating. Ladies Mantle can be helpful for those who seek intimacy as an escape from reality, as it will help remove the mental delineation between the pleasure that can be felt in the bedroom and the pleasure that can be felt in life… thus one will be less ‘dependent’ on intimacy to enjoy the physical side of life.

-Not suitable in the first 3 weeks of pregnancy -even though it may aid in conception.
