As a member of the thistle family, artichokes carry armor and are used to ward off danger. Use them in Rituals to get to the heart of a matter. Slowly work your way through the delicacy, peeling the leaves until you are at its core. Visualize the problem you are trying to sort out as you strip the leaves away. When you arrive at the heart, imagine your problem being solved at its very core. Roman artichokes stimulate the energy glands and increase sexual and physical stamina.
This is available in two choices of packaging:
- a portion of 3-4 generous tablespoons in a convenient Ziploc bag.
- a 50ml hexagonal glass jar full.
Both are provided with an information card.
