Wood Betony // dried herb


Organically grown Wood Betony (Stachys officinalis,) dried at low temperatures. Grown and hand-harvested by Ritual Botanica.

Thanks for supporting small farmers and organic growing methods. The dried herbs you'll find here have been grown in conditions most suitable for the herb, with care for supporting potency and handled with care by one or two sets of hands. They've never been tossed around or sorted on conveyor belts. This is medicine for the soul. 


Stachy is quite the panacea in my opinion, once an extremely popular herb for both physical and spiritual healing. It acts as an overall body tonic, easing nerves, soothing & stimulating the digestive tract and liver. It is great for all types of head-related complaints that can benefit from cooling - anxious energy, heated headaches, sleeping troubles do to restless minds. 

I think it helps one's overall strength in a centered self, helping us feel grounded in our voice and truth. 

In medieval Europe, it was said to ward off evil spirits, often grown at cemeteries or used an amulet. 

You can tincture the dried herb at a 1:5 ratio (1oz herb to 5 oz alcohol of 40-75%, depending on what you can get your hands on)

Hydrosols are versatile and safe medicine. Spray a few spritz on your face and body for toning and refreshing. Try it in your hair or on a pillow. It makes a great spray for your environment, rather it be a workplace or home space. Hydrosols can cleanse and change the energy in the area without the smoke of incense. Many of the products are safe to consume; try spritzing a cup of water or a fun cocktail. Anyway you use them hydrosols will bestow the spirit of the plant into the surroundings, helping you connect with it's essence and energy. 

Each bottle comes with suggested use.

The shelf life will be on your bottle - "1-2 years from [date bottled]" the gap in time here is pretty big, but that's because it depends on how it's taken care of. 

Care Tips: keep in a cool place, away from direct sunlight. Do not leave in your car or the freezer, however the fridge will greatly increase the shelf life while providing an extra refreshing spray! Avoid opening the cap often to keep oxygen and contaminates out. Keep somewhere you'll remember to use it!

We suggest using the medicine in 6 months-1yr. Why? We don't use chemical preservatives and plant medicine can degrade over time. Skin care should be treated like food, used fresh and whole. So use it up, #treatyoself!

Wood Betony // dried herb

I love working with Ritual Botanica! There is so much heart and integrity embedded in every facet or it that everything I receive feels like a gift. I decided to try the Wood Betony after reading about it on the IG account. I am an acupuncturist in Chicago, IL and loosely associated the energetics and actions Ash wrote about as ones that would be helpful for a more common pattern I see of Wood overacting on Earth. When I gave it a try, I didn't have particularly high or low expectations of it, but sure was struck by how decidedly and rapidly effective it was! And too, how gracefully it shifted things internally. I've recommended Ritual Botanica to many a client and friend and will continue to do so. What a gem!
