    Hmm Very Interesting. It does bother me a bit that the herb is hard to come by and very Poisines to pregnant woman. It has a lot of incredible qualitys as well though. I find it very interesting that it's being used in Canser research. Maybe the Hawthorn or Chickweed would be more appropriate. BTW I have a Tun of chickweed in my back yard, LOL. That's what attracted me to it.

    MANDRAKE

    Ya know the more I read about this herb the more I like it. The reason being is that it isn't some ol' fidly herb that one can just use w/out thought. This herb deserves respect & knowledge and w/ that it's powerful abilities will come forth. However I also don't think it should be used unless you have the know how to do so.

    I found this really interesting ~ it's from the first url:

    Where there is Mandrake, demons cannot reside, and so the root is used in Exorcism.
    It really must be a powerful herb/root.

    Another thing I like about it, is it has very yin and yang properties as far as opposites go. The flowers that are produced in the springtime produce edible fruits and yet the large seed is poisonous. It is a very powerful in that it can heal & yet powerful in that it can kill too.

    I find it funny that the english (just like in harry potter) had the folklore that if you pulled the root of a mandrake it would scream ~ but in the Native American folklore it was used as a plan of love and charm lol

    WHEAT

    Okay did a search on wheat ~ I found this site (one of my fav's)

    http://www.botanical.com/botanical/mgmh/c/cowwh113.html

    Something that struck me in the first paragraph, last sentence is when it says this:

    The plant is in flower from June to September.
    If your wanting a baby in those months or wanting to begin ttc in those months it might be of benefit to use this plant. Although it's not a must, it's something I would propably do.

    However the very last sentence on this page says:

    Dodonaeus tells us that 'the seeds of this herb taken in meate or drinke troubleth the braynes, causing headache and drunkennesse.'
    So this kind of wheat may not even be edible .. I'm not sure.

    This was the only site I could find that wasn't a recipie on just wheat lol

    However in switching my wording around when doing a search I came across a website about wheat grass ~ I knew this stuff was good BUT WOW .. it's something I think I will begin incorporating into my diet.

    It's also good for reproduction & lactation .. I'd have to look more into it to see what the contraindications are (if any) for pregnant or lactating women though.

    For example, cereal grasses were found to improve reproductive ability, and milk production - two markers of good health.

    HAWTHORN

    It seems this herb is more for people w/ heart conditions or hypertention. It mentions only slightly on this page that the celts used it during Beltane (maypole) and represented fertility, but it doesn't really explain why.

    Folk-lore
    Hawthorn was regarded as a valuable heart remedy as far back as the Middle Ages. The Hawthorn was considered sacred in early times and believed to furnish the Crown of Thorns. Legend has it that between AD30-63 Joseph of Aramathea came to England and planted his hawthorn staff in Glastonbury soil. This became known as The Glastonbury Thorn and grew and blossomed at Christmas and Easter as if in celebration of the Christian Year. The Celts used Hawthorn in May celebrations using it to dress maypoles and symbolic effigies, and associated it with fertility.
    http://www.alternative-healthzine.com/html/0105_2.html

    It's a pretty flower plant though ~ kind of reminds me of morning glory w/ the long vines.


    The botainical site had some interesting info as well, but once again mention of it helping heart issues but nothing about fertility. Something that immeditaltye turned me of from this herb is the 2nd sentence on the page said this:

    Many country villagers believe that Hawthorn flowers still bear the smell of the Great Plague of London.
    However on an interesting note (mabey b/c it's snowing here and FREEZING? lol) I thought this was neat:

    It makes excellent fuel, making the hottest wood-fire known and used to be considered more desirable than Oak for oven-heating.
    And right as I thought there was no hope for this herb & fertility I find this page LOL

    http://www.thedance.com/herbs/hawthorn.htm

    It talks about it's use w/ magick:

    USE IN MAGIC: Fertility, Chastity, Fishing Magic, Happiness
    -used to decorate the Maypole: Hawthorns thought to be witches who had transformed themselves to trees
    -used in wedding decorations to increase fertility
    -leaves placed under a mattress or in a room will ease one sworn to chastity or celibacy
    -carried on fishing trips to ensure a good catch
    -protects the house from storms, evil spirits, placed in cradles to protect infants
    -sacred to fairies, and when it grows with oak and ash, one may see fairies
    -used to ease depression
    It also talks about a few things that I think can be tied into fertility:

    USE IN PERSONAL GROWTH:
    -helps release feelings of disharmony and hate
    -reinstates harmony and inner calm after a period of conflict or struggle
    -renews self love and fortifies the heart
    If we can find balance in all of these then I think a lot of troubles will fade away.

    Anyhow I've ran out of time ~ I've got some studying to do for school so will return later tonight to do more study on these herbs I hope this helps for now.

    Ugg I am a little overwhelmed right now. I went searching about the internet at different herbs for fertility and really there isn't alot of information. I checked out Chickweed and it seems like a faboulas herbs, it's pretty much good for anything. the only thing i found with any real relation to fertility was Poppy Seed, Black and even then it's just a quick blurb. Here is what i found let me know what you think.

    Something to keep in mind ~ it doesn't have to "be" for fertility or have a website state that it's for fertility for it to be s fertility hreb. You make it what it is Pull meaning out of the herb, if it's good for health ~ use that for good health as you need that to produce a strong offspring .. if it's for calming, use it to help calm you as you prepare for pregnancy, if it's for healing old wounds let it do that .. There is soo much that comes into play w/ fertility

    The poppy sounds wonderful too! Let your mind stay open as you search for what your needing. Anything goes.

    soooo deep breath ~ lets begin

    I think I have finally figured it out!!! Clary Sage essential oil for bathing in will help with female reproductive systems. Red Raspberry Tea to drink and Either False Unicorn or Dong Quai as a herb. Now i remember you ladies saying something about False Unicorn but I can't seem to find it and the Dong Quai is like a Ginsing for woman and their reproductive systems. I also found Saw Palmetto Berry for my husband it's good for the male prostate as well as Lavender as a afrodisiac (pardon my spelling). I was thinking about making him a little pouch with those two herbs in it. Calendula is another i found that seemed o.k for fertility but I don't know very much about it. So what are all your oppinions on these? I love the Clary Sage and Have used it before when i was young for troublsome periods and i know that Red Raspberry tea is great for the Uterus, but what are your thoughts on False Unicorn, Dong Quai and Calendula. Also your thoughts on the pouch with Saw Palmetto Berry and lavander, oh and i think Jasmine was another afrodisiac (SP?) ? Thanks for all your help and I really think I am starting to get the hang of this.........well it's a start, LOL.

    Here is what I found on Dong Quai
