This plant is well known to anyone who celebrates Christmas or those who know of its ability to calm and soothe. Indigo Herbs holds two Mistletoe products, Mistletoe Leaf Tea and Mistletoe Tincture, which are saturated with these botanical properties in abundance. A significant plant in Greek, Roman, Norse and Druidic folklore; these mythologies have grown and travelled fast in the past just as the plant does today in nature. Join Indigo Herbs in opening up the mysteries of these ancient cultures with these two great mistletoe products.

The most common mythology connected with Mistletoe comes from the Norse legend of Baldr. The story tells of the goddess Frigga, the goddess of love/beauty and Baldr’s mother, travelling through the three worlds securing promises from all beings not to ever hurt or kill her son. When she came to Mistletoe, she thought the plant too young to secure a promise from it. The trickster Loki, seeing this quickly fashioned an arrow from mistletoe and gave it to Baldr’s blind brother Höðr. Loki helped Höðr aim the arrow which struck Baldr who died immediately. In some versions of the story the white mistletoe berries form from the tears of joy from Baldr’s mother when Baldr is restored to life. Frigga then blesses mistletoe with the promise that whoever passes under the plant will receive a kiss from her. The word Mistletoe comes from the old English word ‘misteltãn’ which in turn possibly came from the old German words ‘mist’ meaning dung, and ‘tān’ meaning branch. This alludes to the way that the seed of Mistletoe is carried by birds and deposited on the branch of another host tree.

This very interesting parasitic plant can grow on up to 200 different species of tree, carried by species of birds who love the berries. Depending on the tree and environment the tree host can quickly be overrun by mistletoe and die. There are many cases though of trees living with mistletoe in a symbiotic relationship. A bird who’s carrying the seed deposits it either from wiping its beak on a branch, defecating or through regurgitation for its young. The seed has a very special sticky and viscous membrane surrounding it that keeps the seed stuck to the tree and allows the seed to germinate. According to Druidic lore, the best mistletoe plants are those that grow on oak trees.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Grab a teapot, a cafeteria or your tea making equipment of choice. The Mistletoe Leaf can be made into an herbal tea by infusing the herb in boiling water. Use 1 cup of boiling water per person. Let the tea brew for 5 - 15 minutes. Breathe, sip your tea and enjoy.

Taking herbal remedies in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out into the small ml measuring cup that comes with each bottle. (A medicine cup or spoon could also be used) and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Mistletoe Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice.

Serving:

Mistletoe Tincture:
Traditionally Taken: 1-4 ml up to 3 times a day.
or as directed by a Herbal practitioner.

 Manufacture Process

The production process is very simple; the Mistletoe leaves are usually harvested during fruiting and are set out to be air dried until they have as little moisture in them as possible. After selection of the best individual dried leaf there follows testing to guarantee there are no other constituents or pollutants in the plant material. The dried mistletoe leaf then undergoes a process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the ethanol. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs. It is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added.

Not to be given to children or pregnant women. Do not take if using MAO inhibitor medication, such as some anti-depressants, check with a medical practitioner.
