The November tea blend is deviating away from the norm with a spiced cider. Because who doesn’t love a good cider? Especially when you’re infusing it with intentions to create magic.
The added bonus is that all the spices I used in this cider help to boost your immune system. Though, I do have to say that these statements have not been evaluated by the FDA.
However, cinnamon, ginger, oranges, and cloves have been used for thousands of years because of their medicinal properties. I’ll go for tried and true over ingredients that can’t be pronounced any day. And if you’re reading this, chances are you will too.
This blend was specifically created because of their medicinal and magical properties AND because we’re in eclipse season. You can read more about it in the November cosmic weather report HERE.
Basically, this will help you to simmer down and of course, to manifest whatever your heart desires. It also should be said now that the apple cider I used has no added sugars, making this super healthy while reaping in the natural sweetness from apples.
I’m going to give you the recipe first followed by the properties of the spices.
Let’s get started shall we?
November Tea: a heartwarming blend to create magic
- 1 cup apple cider
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 10 whole cloves
- 6 orange peels (fresh or dried)
BEFORE YOU MAKE:
Set your intentions for what you wish to bring in while you’re gathering them. See below for the properties of each of the spices to help you with your manifestation.
HOW TO MAKE:
- Place all the ingredients in a saucepan and put it on the stove.
- Turn the stove to low.
- Seal your intentions by saying a prayer and thanking the Universe.
- Let it simmer for about 20 minutes until all the spices have infused into your cider.
- Place a strainer on your mug and pour the cider through to catch the spices.
- Scatter the spices on the ground, with gratitude for Mother Earth acknowledging and helping you with your manifestation.
Now- let’s get onto the magical properties of each of the spices.
Apples have been around for thousands of years and the trees live around two hundred years so it’s no surprise that they signify abundance and eternity.
While you won’t find immortality within your physical body, you can intend to find your personal legend and to bring in prosperity.
Apples are also known for love spells and have been used for eons to aid in bringing forth your true love. You can always perform an incantation with the apple cider to bring in the person on your mind.
They also aid in fertility and protection so if you’re on the prowl for a new beginning, now would be a great time to infuse your heartwarming cider with the intention of fresh energies. If you’re looking to get preggers, this would obviously be great too. Want some protection? Now’s the time to ask for it.
Let’s move onto cinnamon sticks and all that they can help you to bring in.
Cinnamon is amazing for empowerment, confidence, courage, psychic abilities, love, protection, success, and wealth. It’s also known to be an anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-fungal, can help to reduce blood pressure and blood sugar, and can improve gut health.
Kind of amazing that one herb has a myriad of benefits, huh? It’s no wonder that it’s been used for thousands of years in both medicine and magick.
Whatever your heart desires- whether it be health, the courage to walk away from the relationship you’ve been meaning to or starting the project you keep telling yourself you’ll get to, bringing in a lover, increasing your intuition, or connecting to the Divine on a more prolific level, cinnamon is your go to herb.
Bonus Tip: Carve your sigil with a knife onto the cinnamon stick before you place it into the saucepan to seal your intentions.
Let’s move onto the next spice in this heartwarming spiced cider to create magic.
Cloves, like cinnamon, offer a host of both medicinal and magickal benefits. So much so, that wars were waged over them because they were such a prized commodity.
They help you to attract friends, lovers, and money. If you’re looking to protect your home and yourself, cleanse your space, gain clarity, get focused, or even to remove a hex, you can turn to using the powers of cloves as well.
Cloves also happen to be high in antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, and can help to fight infections. They were even used before modern medicine became the mainstream in helping to alleviate tooth pain and tooth infections.
November can get hectic with the holiday season inching closer and closer. Now would be a great time to manifest focus and clarity so you can navigate your way through the holidays with a calm mind. Or if you’re inclined, to get more social.
Bonus Tip: Make a wish to one whole clove (not one of the ones you used). Once the wish has been made, place the clove in a piece of red fabric and tie it. Put that in a place no one will see. Your altar, closet, or wallet.
Let’s move onto the last ingredient in this heartwarming cider.
Oranges symbolize the sun- our life force, vitality, creativity, and purpose. You can even leave it as an offering to your ancestors or the Divine.
They’re also known to bring luck, fortune and aid in divination. I mean, some believe that orange peels express the joy of the angels, so how can it not be divine?
The color speaks for itself- joy. So if you’re looking for more happiness and inspiration, set an intention to bring more exuberance with the orange peels. If you’re feeling a bit lackluster in your sacral chakra, you can manifest harnessing your sexual prowess, your creativity, and uplifting your emotional wellbeing with the orange peels.
There you have it…the November tea blend. Even though it’s really a heartwarming spiced cider to create magic. But, nonetheless, it’s just as healthy and comforting as a cup of tea.
