Magical Uses Of Herbs 2

Merry Tuesday all!

Welcome to the second part of magical uses of herbs....Enjoy!


Magical Uses of Herbs

African Violet (saintpaulia ionantha)

Gender: Feminine

Planet: Venus

Element: Water

Powers: Spirituality, Protection

Magical Uses: The purple colored flowers and plants are grown in the home to promote spirituality with it. The plants are also slightly protective when grown.

Agaric (amanita muscaria) Poison!

Folk Names: Death Angel, Death Cap, Magic Mushroom, Redcap Mushroom, Sacred Mushroom, Fly Fungus.

Gender: Masculine

Planet: Mercury

Element: Air

Deity: Dionysus

Powers: Fertility

Ritual Uses: There is speculation that at least some of the mystery religions of classical times centered their secret rituals around the use of the amanita (hallucinogenic fungus)

Magical Uses: Place on the altar or in the bedroom to increase fertility. Unfortunately, the amanita is so virulently poisonous that it is unwise to use it.

Agrimony (agrimonia eurpatoria)

Folk Names: Church Steeples, Cocklebur, Garclive, Philanthropos, Sticklewort, Stickwort, Umakhuthula, Ntola.

Gender: Masculine

Planet: Jupiter

Element: Air

Powers: Protection, sleep

Magical Uses: Use in all protection sachets and spells also to banish negative energies and spirits. It protects against goblins, evil and poison.  Agrimony has also long been used to reverse spells sent against the magician; so it not only breaks hexes, it also sends them back to the hexer.

Agrimony placed under the head will made one sleep as if dead, according to ancient lore, but don't use this for insomnia; the sleeper won't awaken until the herb is removed. At one time agrimony was used to detect the presence of Witches.

There are a lot of herbs to go, so check back often for new posts...Due to my health, I won't be able to post everyday, but I will as much as possible.

Why? Because I like sharing information with you all on topics that can benefit anyone and everyone....

Magical Uses Of Herbs

Magical Uses of Herbs

Acacia (acacia senegal)

Folk Names: Cape Gum, Egyptian Thorn, Gum Arabic Tree, kikwataa, Mkwatia, Mgunga, Mokala

Planet: Sun

Element: Air

Deities: Osiris, Astarte, Ishtar, Diana, Ra

Powers: Protection, Psychic Powers

Ritual Uses: The wood is used as fuel in sacred fires in India, and is also used in building temples.

Magical Uses: A sprig of the tree placed over the bed wards off evil, as it does when tucked into the turban in Eastern countries. When the wood is burned with sandlewood the psychic powers are stimulated. Acacia is also used in money and love spells, although in the latter case the outcome would be a platonic love.

Adam & Eve Roots (orchis spp.)[Poison]

Power: Love, Happiness

Magical Uses: Carry the two roots in a small bag at all times to attract a love. If you wish to be free form amatory competitors, also carry the two roots sewn into a small bag. Given to a couple they ensure continued happiness.

Adder's Tongue (erythronium americanum)
