- 2 cups water
- 1 tablespoon dried St. John's Wort
- 1 tablespoon dried lemon balm
- 1 tablespoon dried chamomile
- 1 tablespoon dried calendula petals
- 1 teaspoon honey (optional)
- 1 slice of fresh orange
- A few sprigs of fresh mint
1. Begin by boiling 2 cups of water in a small pot.
2. Once the water reaches a rolling boil, reduce the heat to low and add the dried St. John's Wort, lemon balm, chamomile, and calendula petals. Stir gently and let the mixture simmer for about 10 minutes.
3. While the potion is simmering, focus on the energy of the sun and the vibrant life of summer. Visualize warmth, joy, and abundance infusing the potion with each passing moment.
4. After 10 minutes, remove the pot from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes.
5. Strain the potion into a heat-resistant container, such as a glass bottle or jar.
6. If desired, add a teaspoon of honey to sweeten the elixir. Stir well until the honey is fully dissolved.
7. Once the elixir has cooled to a comfortable drinking temperature, add a slice of fresh orange and a few sprigs of fresh mint for an extra burst of flavour and visual appeal.
8. Allow the potion to sit for a few minutes, allowing the flavours to infuse further.
9. Serve the Sunfire Elixir in small glasses or cups, and raise your glass in a toast to the power of the sun and the bountiful energy of Litha.
10. Sip the elixir slowly, savoring each sip as you embrace the vibrant energy of summer and the solstice.
Note: If you prefer a chilled drink, refrigerate the elixir for a few hours before serving. Feel free to adjust the ingredient quantities based on your taste preferences and the desired strength of the elixir.
Enjoy the Sunfire Elixir and have a blessed Litha!
