Every sign is connected to a
function of the body, and every part of the body is supported by different herbs
and spices. According to conventional wisdom, herbs and spices are for
flavoring our food, but in truth, they're also for healing and supporting
longevity. What's your spice?
Aries rules the head, face, eyes, and brain. Cinnamon is a spice known to boost
brain function, clarity, memory, and concentration. Cinnamon is a spice that
will aid your health, Aries and give you more flavors in your life. Add it to
your morning oatmeal, toast, or yogurt.
Taurus: Garlic. Taurus
rules the throat, and we all know how important the throat is! Garlic boosts
the immune system while strengthening the most vulnerable parts of our bodies. The
throat is the place where common illnesses land, and garlic is the solution
Gemini rules the arms, and cilantro has lots of vitamin K, which supports bone
strength. Cilantro also detoxifies the body from metal contamination, and we
can all use a little metal detox now and again.
The hands are ruled by Cancer, and no one is surprised by that because hands
carry, nurture, and sooth. As Cancers tend to everyone but themselves, lavender
will relax you, Cancer and it will and allow all those emotions you carry to
dissolve for just a moment. Breathe deep Cancer, you deserve it.
Leo rules the heart, which means Leos profoundly love and need lots of love as
well. It also means they can be subject to heartburn and issues that cause
challenging heart problems. Don't worry; along with monitoring your diet and
exercise, turmeric is a great spice for your heart and inflammation.
Virgo is in charge of the stomach and the intestines and as the pursuit of
perfection can be stressful, digestion is often a little tricky for Virgos. The
emotions land right in your belly. Cardamom will help sooth your belly, but it won't
stop you from worrying; you'll need another trick for that.
Seeds. The kidneys are governed by Libra—this is fitting, as the kidneys
purify the body and help keep it in balance. Fennel seeds support strong kidney
Scorpio rules the pelvic area and all that resides there. Saffron is a spice
that has been used for centuries to support women with heavy menstrual periods
and cramps. This tasty (but pricey!) spice will make your life easier,
Sagittarius rules the thighs. The thighs are one of the strongest muscles in
the body as they carry our entire body weight upon them. Ginger is great for
muscle strain and releasing tension.
Pepper. The legs are governed by Capricorn. Cayenne pepper has many health
benefits, and one of them is supporting good circulation, which is crucial to
keeping the legs strong.
Aquarius rules the ankles and the flexibility that they offer. Rosemary is a
spice that supports joint pain. If you sprain your ankle Aquarius, rosemary
will be your best friend.
The feet are ruled by Pisces, and boy, we know how dry and scaly the skin on
the feet can get. Cumin is good for the skin as a mask or used internally.
Pisces, you must give your feet special car;, goodness knows you are moving us
