Herbs for Wishes

Published February 13, 2013 by PixieHowl

•             Bay Laurel: Can be used in wish magic.

•             Dandelion: To send a message to someone, blow the seeds in their direction, and visualize your message.

•             Job’s Tears: As you count out seven seeds, concentrate on a wish you have in mind. Carry these seven seeds with you at all times for seven days and your wish should have come true before the week is gone.

•             Lavender: Place some Lavender under your pillow just before retiring and think about your wish. If you dream about anything at all connected with the wish this means that it will come true.

•             Lotus Root: Mark one side of the root “yes” and the other side “no” and then make your wish as you toss the root into the air. You will then know if your wish was meant to be.

•             Marigold: Be sure to gather your Marigolds for magical workings at noon. If you place it under your mattress it will make whatever you dream come true.

•             Spearmint: Write your wish on a piece of paper and wrap in a few Spearmint leaves. Place these in a red cloth and sew it up with red thread. Keep it in a safe and secret place. By the time the scent is gone your wish should have come true. If not, this means that it probably won’t for a long time to come.

Kitchen WItch Herbal

Published February 9, 2013 by PixieHowl

The herbs listed below should be easily obtained at any grocery
store, and
should not get a second glance from even the most rabid anti-magickal
person

Some ways to include herbs in your spells are to simmer them on the
stove in
a pot of water, to include them in ritual foods or drinks, to burn
them in a
fire, or to place them in a bag, doll, or pillow. You can also
scatter them
on your working altar.
