Into the Underworld
• INTO THE UNDERWORLD ~ Aphrodisiac Elixir for Ancestral Journeying & Sexual Creativity •
*This listing is for one 2oz matte black recyclable bottle.
Take just a few drops of this Elixir in a safe space or out in the forest, close your eyes and put your hands over your womb or your heart. Relax & let these Underworld allies guide you beyond the veil..
The flavor of this Elixir is primal & complex, reflective of the dynamic medicine & Wild spirit of these sacred allies, acrid yet sweetened with the gentle softness of Damiana & Black Cottonwood infused raw PNW honey. They are allies of the Moon, of the Dark Womb, of the Underworld ~ an often harsh place of deep reflection. A place we go to meet the raw parts, where we face the ancestors. It’s the world beyond the veil where life meets death. Where pain meets ecstasy. It’s the place where we birth creativity, sensuality, sexuality. The ancestor world that conjures creation & desire. It’s the world us womb-bearers visit when we are bleeding. Here, we dream, we journey, we create. We peel back the layers, we grow wise, we grieve deeply, we morph, we transform.
I formulated this offering to be a bridge that helps guide us during our journey into the sacred Underworld, a place most easily accessible during the Moontime. They are aphrodisiac herbs known to help stimulate sexual & creative libido ~ allowing us to open parts of ourselves that otherwise might be inaccessible.
🌚 Mugwort & Wormwood ~ they are thought of as psychoactive sisters of the Moonlight & keepers of the mysterious feminine. Combined they enhance each others magic. Mugwort is one of the most important ritual plants of Germanic peoples. Her powers to summon vivid, prophetic dreaming is unparalleled. Her element is Earth; protective & grounding, she roots us while allowing us to travel beyond the veil. She’s heavily used in scrying practices & ancestral communing ceremonies. She’s known to have an affinity with the womb with her ability to increase lustful desires, fertility & help regulate cycles, making her an incredible ally for Moontime Journeying.
🌚 Her Wild sister, Wormwood ~ “Old Woman” holds a fiery energy that rings true in her strong aromatics & harsh acrid flavor. She’s powerful, one of the oldest plants known, also protective in nature, calling forth the spirits, conjuring deep love & enhancing psychic visions. She has a deep relation with Hecate & Hel ~ goddesses of the Underworld. She is also a sister of the Moon with her affinity for the womb. Her guidance in divination, clairvoyance & journeying helps stimulate creativity with deep lustful passion.
🌚 Damiana ~ is a potent aphrodisiac. She’s an ancient erotic herb knowing to bring upon bright visions with her ability to pull us out from darkness. She enhances lobido while uplifting & tonifying the mind. She helps open the dark parts so we can process trauma & stuck grief. She conjures a sense of strength & courage for vulnerability, helping restore a passion for life while physically & spiritually stimulating desires.
🌚 Star Anise ~ is a magical ally known for associations with fertility & the Underworld, for love & protection. She’s thought of as a ‘psychic shield’ that helps enhance psychic abilities, dreaming & divination with access to the spirit world. She’s incredibly powerful in flavor with a sweetness that works well with Cottonwood honey to balance the bitter acrid flavor of Artemesia.
In Indigenous & European folklore, Cottonwood is a sacred tree of the Underworld, her blood red stinky buds ground us while relieving tension & pain. Conjured under the Full & Dark Moons of Summer & Winter.
🌚 Black Cottonwood ~ (Populus) translates to “people’s tree” - she is prolific here in the PNW & comes with a lot of Indigenous lore. She’s considered the Tree of Life by tribes who held community ceremony of prayer, dance & offerings in a circle around young Black Cottonwoods ~ making medicine with her leaves, bark & resinous buds. She’s known as a deeply protective tree, whom also grows in Southern & Central parts of Europe. They consider her a bridge between the worlds, of light and dark, life and death. She’s a sacred tree of the Underworld, to Persephone & Hecate. Cottonwood is a powerful pain healer. Her sweet vanilla scented buds are an aphrodisiac; conjuring feelings of sensuality and deep passion. Her resinous buds bleed a beautiful sticky red resin full of Salicylic Acid which are as erotic as they are extremely pain-reliving. She enhances the other herbs in this formula with her similar magical connections & medicinal properties. She’s anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, helping relieve menstrual cramps, sprains, muscle/nerve spasms & so much more.

This elixir delivered, as promised, the creative and, yes, sexual energy I was so intrigued by in the description. Interestingly enough, I have found my sleep to be deeper on the days I’ve taken this (is that a coincidence?) with more vivid dreams. Overall, I’m extremely happy with the beautiful herbal magic woven into this elixir.
This offering has been insane, in my personal experience. I tend to have nightmares, or at least fairly ominous dreams when I take this before sleeping. But always a very thought-provoking experience. I have occasionally taken in a little while before a meditative rituals, and I will generally take it during my bleed alongside some of the other elixirs from Midgaarb. I find that should I have an interesting night with this brew, it's best for me to allow rest the day after which I tend to be doing during my period anyway. It definitely delivers as promised!
This sacred potion had quite an intriguing description and delivered as promised. Really enjoy this addition to my expansive Midgaarb collection. Perfect tincture to take for vivid dreams and visits to the underworld.
This is definitely something to take when wanting to relax and sleep! My dreams were very vivid and it even encouraged lucid dreaming! The effects lasted about 2 days for me. Very unique brew!
This elixir is delicious (if you are into anise/licorice/absinthe-type taste). I felt very connected with my dreaming in a positive way after taking this at night.
