Magical Uses of Herbs
African Violet (saintpaulia ionantha)
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.
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.
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.
