Atropa belladonna is a Eurasian perennial with reddish, bell-shaped flowers that bear glossy, black berries. Other names for the plant include belladonna, deadly nightshade, and devil’s herb. The plant earns its sinister nicknames, as its foliage and berries are extremely toxic, containing potent dosages of tropane alkaloids. Its most common name, belladonna, derives from Italian, meaning “beautiful woman.” Historically, women have used the herb’s oil to dilate and enlarge the pupils for a seductive effect, however, it is best known as the plant of choice for assassins through out history.
Rainbow Moonstone is a stone of new beginnings. As its name suggests, it is strongly connected to moon and to the intuition. Like the moon, the stone is reflective and reminds us that, as the moon waxes and wanes, everything is part of a cycle of change. It’s most powerful effect is that it calms and encourages, teaching us the natural rhythms of life. Many people find moonstone to be very soothing and use it to help relieve stress. Rainbow Moonstone connects us to Divine Inspiration, and channels it into our own intuition. It also enhances one’s emotional vision, bringing greater creative abilities and freedom of expression.
