Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare)
As one of the Mercurial plants, fennel is an excellent digestive stimulant, it is part of the “four hot seeds” (with anise, coriander and caraway) in the ancient pharmacopoeia; they have effective powers against flatulence and are great for hunting intestinal gas. Thus fennel works by promoting contractions and activating the glands of the digestive tract, while fighting against flatulence.
Fennel is also a diuretic, it fights the retention of water from the body regardless of its origin and location: inflated ankle, feet, legs, belly and eyelids.
The fennel seeds will be of significant help for young mothers who do not have enough milk to feed their babies. So, they often use them as a galactogen (milk production). The leaves of fennel are great against engorgements of the breasts.
Parsley (Petroselinum crispum)
Parsley has a diuretic property, very suitable for removing excess water in the body. This stimulant effectively regulates the menstrual cycle.
Known for their aphrodisiac effect, its seeds stimulate sexual glands, arouse sexual desires and promote fertility. A cure based on this plant with multiple virtues is very suitable for individuals suffering from sexual dysfunction.
The consumption of parsley as a powder provides valuable protection of the intestines and liver. People use it as a poultice to treat pimples and to lighten the blotchy complexion. The essential oil extracted from its leaves is prescribed to treat rheumatism, cystitis and flatulence.
Qualities of Mercury
This is a planet of Individuation, like Venus and the Moon. Therefore, Mercury, with its mind, relates in priority to the Venusian functions (attractiveness, feelings and emotions, affectivity) and lunar (unconscious, inner world of the ego, psyche, traditional roots, daily living environment, material possessiveness and conservatism).
Its primary mission is to make the individual aware of their selfhood through the accentuation of dualities, the binary distinction of differences, the discernment of their environment, thus leading to discrimination, selection, understanding what is me and what the other is.
Mercury as a planet means knowledge, thought, and communication. It is associated with the movement and distribution of information in the mind and body via the nervous system.
