In my country there are few types of persons who use the herbs to heal.
First: witches, they use herbs to heal or to do magick.
Second: herbalists, they use herbs to heal according to modern herbotherapy.
If u need any more information about traditional ways of using herbs, don't hestitate and ask me :)

Also I'd like to share one thing with all of you.
Here, it is believed that mugwort can help mentally ill people or alleviate stomach ache, also, in 19th century, drink, called absinthe was drunk by various artists. Absinthe contains both mugwort and wormwood, so we can believe that if artists like Van Gogh drunk absinth and were very creative, we can say that those artemisia species can increase your creativity.
So i made up alternative for absinthe, for those who dont want to drink, brain destroying alcohol.
Here it is:

Take 1 tablespoon of dried mints, 2 tablespoons of mugwort herb. Pour one litre of boiling water on them and wait for about 20 minutes. Than, add honey or no honey and enjoy.
I've noticed that drinking it before the night increases chances to remember your dreams and they are more weird and specific. I like that effect.
I hope the tea will give everyone the creativity and have oneirogenic effect :)

I want to trade lives with the guy at 1:31 in the second one!

Great tunes. What do they mean???
Life is short and you only get one. It is yours so use it selfishly. Find your true path and follow it. Be true to your own convictions. And love each other.

I'm good. Thank you for the tunes. A translation would be nice. What does "stinta pukis" mean?

Stinta pukis - just magickal chant without translation, it is used to attract fishes. Of course words mean something, but since its archaic song, some words lost their meaning and nowadays we understand only parts of old songs. Its like mantras, in old songs u can find words without translation like "Kaleda", "Leliumai", which are chanted on and on. At least we understand they have seasons, like songs with chant "kaleda" are winter season songs, cuz we have deity Kaleda, which was believed to ride in the sky and bring people happiness on winters solstice.

Today, I'd like to share another archaic lithuanian war song "bite lingo". Bite means bee, and lingo is now not used word, so we don't know what it means.

Also, i'd like you to show one original only lithuanian style music - "sutartines", which are multivocal songs, where one group sings one line, and other group is a bit late to sing same line. Sutartine word is from "sutarti" - to get along.
Here we are:

These songs were sung in south Lithuania, and are very archaic and dont have analogues in the world.

What i forgot to tell. Pagan lithuanians do similar rituals to hindu homam yagnas. They lit the fire on pile of stones, which is called "aukuras" - place where things are offered to deities. First of all they invoke goddess of fire - Gabija (Gabia) and then they speak prayers to god of sky - Perkunas and other gods. In ancient Lithuania, places with "aukuras" were sacred forest where only priests would be allowed to enter and their helpers - vaidulutes, innocent virgin girls, which wouldnt let the aukuras fire to distinguish. Fire of aukuras was called "eternal fire" which was burned forever till the crussaders invaded lithuania and cut down all sacred oak forests. But good thing, that nowadays these places are recreated again. There are new priests and new fire priestesses.
In houses people also kept eternal fireplaces, fire was like pet, because it was believed to be goddess Gabija. People would honour these fireplaces and in bedtime they would say prayers and distinguish fire with clean water.

Any religion person might create up its own ritual of fire.
Just go into clean forest, make bonfire on pile of stones and tell prayers to your gods and put presents for them into bonfire by singin your own god songs.
Like I go to one sacred place in my town and light the fire, than sing prayers to gods and plant spirits and I drink calea zacatechichi tea or chew salvia divinorum leaves. I also put some presents for gods into fire - some of my plants leaves, grains, paper sheets with prayers and wishes to be fulfiled. There i can feel total connection with mother nature.
