Herbs and Fruits for Autumnal Equinox

Most people may not notice, but we are approaching the autumnal equinox, a day in which the day and the night are equally long. Should we do anything to welcome this special day?

When the weather changes, the human body adjusts the endocrine system according to the temperature and humidity to maintain the physiological balance. If the weather changes drastically and the human body does not adjust itself in time, some diseases could occur. As the days approach the autumnal equinox, the weather begins to cool down and become dry. Consequently, dry skin and eyes, constipation, sore throat, nosebleeds, pharyngitis, and cough are the most common illnesses during this period of the season. In this blog, we will introduce some herbs that may help prevent or relieve these conditions.

Lily Bulb
This may sound surprising because there is a myth that lilies are toxic. Well, the myth is not true. All plants in the Lilium genus are edible, including lily bulb. Native Americans used native lilies for making food and medicine. The tiger lily, L. lancifolium, originally from Asia, has also been used for thousands of years in cuisine.

According to traditional Chinese medicine, lily bulbs can nourish the lungs, clear the throat, and calm the nerves. It is often used for dry mouth, coughing, palpitations, and insomnia. You can simply boil the pedals of lily bulbs and eat them with honey, or you can cook them with celery to make a delicious dish.

Monk Fruit
Monk fruit, also known as Swingle fruit (Siraitia grosvenorii), is a small, round native fruit in southern China. The trees often grow in hillside forests, riverside wetlands, and bushes.

For centuries, monk fruit has been a cold and digestive aid in Eastern medicine, but now it also works as a sweetener in foods and beverages. It can moisturize your lungs and the pharynx as well as relieve the intestines. It is effective in relieving dry cough, sore throat, aphonia, and constipation. People often soak the fruit in hot water and drink the water as a beverage (after it cools, of course).

I can expect your “can you eat this” reaction, but Chinese people have been making tea and wine with it for centuries. Daisies usually blossom during autumn. It prefers a warm and moist climate but can also stand against cold and dry weather. That is why it has become a seasonal herb in autumn.

Daisy can clear the eyes, reduce inflammation, detoxify the blood, cool down the liver, and moisturize the lungs. Chinese people often soak it in hot water to make herbal tea. However, one thing to note is that if you want to make some herbal tea, go to an Asian market or a Chinese medicine shop for dry daisies.

Scalar for Herbs
Maybe you do not like the taste of these herbs, or perhaps you are clumsy in the kitchen. How can you use these herbs? Luckily, you have Scalar to help you. You can use Scalar to receive the full healing benefit of them.

Set up and tune your Scalar correctly, put a piece of the herbs on the receiver coil, and stay in the scalar field to receive the goodness of the herbs. If you want your Scalar to stay clean, you can use a glass, crystal, or ceramic container for the herbs. Hopefully, your body will adjust to the new weather quickly.
