Club Moss (Lycopodium clavatum) 2oz/59ml Herbal Extract / Tincture - Maria Treben's Authentic™ Featured Herb
This mossy evergreen plant has 1 to 2 metre long ramblers which trail along the forest ground with their hair-like roots. From these ramblers grow 7 to 10 cm. high forked branches soft to the touch. The 4 year old plants develop yellowish spikes which yield the pollen, called Club Moss powder, which is homeopathically employed for excoriated surfaces of the skin. The Club Moss is a radium containing plant and easily distinguished by its widely ranging, rope-like ramblers and the yellow pollen of the spikes. It is found all over the world and occurs in high forests on Northern slopes and in moors. If the forests are cut down, the plant turns yellow and shrivels up, since it loses its life force through the direct sunlight.
Infusion: 1/4 litre of boiling water is poured over a level teaspoon of Club Moss, infused for a short time. Only 1 cup is taken in sips on an empty stomach, half an hour before breakfast.
Club Moss Pillow: Dried Club Moss (100 gm., 200 gm. or 300 gm. depending on the size of the area affected by a cramp) is stuffed into a pillow which is applied to the aching area overnight. This pillow retains its effect for one year.
