Most magical practices make use of herbs in various ways, often in rituals and magical workings. Often they are used as incense, when they are crushed and powdered, or as oils. Their properties mean that they create a type of force field that intensifies the vibration needed. Additionally, when the practitioner calls upon the power of the Gods and spirits, the herbs become even more effective.

Simply having particular herbs in your sacred space or having them about your person is sufficient to begin the process of enhancing the area or your personal vibration. You can use them in incense and dedicate them to the appropriate Elements and Deities.

Many of the herbs mentioned can be obtained from a good herbalist, though for those of you who are truly interested it would be worthwhile creating a small herb garden or growing them on your windowsill.

EGG SHELL POWDER

Cascarilla repels negative energy, and the vibration of negative energy. Cascarilla powder is such a potent cleansing and protecting agent that it can be used in any number of ways to guard from evil, malicious magic, and disease.

Magical Uses

1. If someone leaves a trick on your doorstep or you find some suspicious item in your home from an enemy, dust your hands well with this powder before picking it up. This keeps the evil from transferring to you, and you can dispose of it safely.

2. Add some to your bath water or sprinkle in the wash bucket for scrubbing the floor to disperse negativity.

3. Use cascarilla powder to make symbols on the floor or altar during ritual or spellwork.

4. Add a bit of water and use it to paint symbols on your skin or use it dry to dust your body for all-over protection.

5. Purification baths.

How to Make Egg Shell Powder

Supplies: The shells of 6 eggs 1 teaspoon very hot tap water 1 teaspoon flour 1 clean rock Sheet of paper Spoon Cup Paper towel (You can grind them in a coffee grinder or food processor too)

Directions: 1. Wash the eggshells well, so they do not have any egg left in them. Let them dry for an hour. The shells must be completely dry, or the chalk will fall apart. 2. Place a sheet of paper on a hard surface. Grind the shells on the paper with a rock. Make sure the rock is clean so you don’t get dirt ground in with the eggshells. 3. Continue grinding the eggshells until you have a fine powder. Make sure you have enough powder to fill a large spoon, which is enough for one stick of chalk. 4. When you have enough of the fine powder to make a stick of chalk, sift or pick up little bits of eggshells that are not ground up and throw them away. Leaving in little bits of eggshells may cause your chalk to break up. 5. Put the teaspoon of flour and the teaspoon of hot water into a cup. Stir together to make a paste. 6. Add the spoonful of eggshell powder into the paste and mix well. It may help to mash it with the back of the spoon. 7. Add a few drops of food coloring if you want colored chalk. Too many drops will make the paste too wet. 8. On a clean, dry surface roll the mixture into a stick. 9. Wrap the stick up in a strip of paper towel and set aside to dry. Drying takes about three days. 10. Peel the paper off one end and you’re ready for some sidewalk art.

MUGWORT

MUGWORT has two magical uses: to provide safe travel and to aid psychic work.

  1. For Safe Travel: Worn in the Shoes, MUGWORT is said to prevent fatigue while walking and to keep off wild beasts and the spirits of evil beings who inhabit forlorn places. A red flannel mojo containing MUGWORT, Comfrey root, and a Saint Christopher medal is said to provide safety and protection to those who visit foreign places or venture away from home, and to make journeys more pleasant by eliminating interference in one’s travel plans.
  2. Spiritualism: MUGWORT brings success to those who engage in psychic and visionary work. If kept in a red bag under one’s pillow, it aids in the production of clairvoyant dreams. A tea made from MUGWORT is used by many to cleanse crystals. To bring forth protective and benevolent spirits, MUGWORT is burned on charcoal with Star Anise, Althaea, and resin incenses like Frankincense, Myrrh, Copal, or Benzoin.

Mugwort can be substituted for WORMWOOD in spells.

Mugwort and Magick

 

Mugwort can be used as a sacred smoking or smudging herb for protection or divination. It is safe to smoke (as safe as smoking anything is) by itself, mixed with tobacco, or other smokeables in a ritual context and is said to enhance astral projection, lucid dreaming and other altered states of consciousness. Some say that simply keeping mugwort under your pillow or in your bedroom will encourage prophetic dreams. Try making a dream pillow stuffed with mugwort. If you do keep it in your bedroom, remember that it is closely related to ragweed and the flowers may trigger some allergies.

Others say you must burn it or smoke it in order to utilize its conscious-altering affects. Burn mugwort in an incense burner as you use divination tools to help open your mind to any messages coming in; or consider using it to make a smudge stick.

If you are not pregnant, a cup of mugwort tea before bedtime will also encourage lucid dreaming. I recommend Mountain Rose Herbs Dream Tea which contains mugwort as well as several other supportive herbs. I use it myself.

Mugwort is also used in protective sachets, especially those created in relation to travel. It is said to prevent delays, and other annoyances associated with traveling, as well as to protect the traveler from accidents, thieves and other dangers associated with traveling.

Mugwort stems also make very nice wands, though they aren’t very sturdy.

Use herbal water made of mugwort to cleanse ritual tools, especially those used for divination.

Hanging mugwort over or on a door will keep unwelcome energies from passing through.

Macerate wormwood and soak in wine for several days, then strain. Use this wine to induce visions, aid in astral projection, and divination. OR place several tablespoons of dried wormwood leaves and flowers in a jar, cover with light olive oil and seal. Let this steep for several weeks in a cool place, strain and use as an anointing oil for yourself or your divination tools. (See cautions on Healing With Wormwood below).

Wormwood flowers and leaves can be added to magical sachets for protection against accidents. Hang these in your car or carry them on your person.

Wormwood may also be used in spells to send harmful magic back on its sender and for spells for vengeance.

Combined with mugwort and burned, wormwood is useful for calling up spirits. Make sure the area is well-ventilated as the smoke can be very irritating to the eyes and throat and is toxic if inhaled. It is also said to be useful in banishing spirits.

Wormwood may also be used in love magic, as this old charm indicates:

‘On St. Luke’s Day, take marigold flowers, a sprig of marjoram, thyme, and a little Wormwood; dry them before a fire, rub them to powder; then sift it through a fine piece of lawn, and simmer it over a slow fire, adding a small quantity of virgin honey, and vinegar. Anoint yourself with this when you go to bed, saying the following lines three times, and you will dream of your partner “that is to be”:

“St. Luke, St. Luke, be kind to me, In dreams let me my true-love see.” ‘ ~ An old love charm

For safety’s sake, do not use wormwood essential oil. Use the dried or fresh leaves or flowers only.


 

The Uses of herbs

PROTECTION Such herbs guard against physical and psychic attacks, injury, accidents and such things as wicked spirits. They usually offer protection in a general sort of way.

LOVE The vibration of these herbs is such that they can help you to meet new people, to overcome shyness and let others know that you are open to new relationships. They put out a particular vibration so that those who are interested will answer the call. The safest way to use them is to accept that several people may be attracted to you and you will then be able to make an informed choice.

FIDELITY Some herbs and plants can by tradition be used to ensure fidelity. You do have to have a firm belief that you have a right to another’s devotion before imposing your will on them. Using a spell for fidelity amounts to a binding spell and you must make allowances for the person’s own integrity. It should always be remembered that it is unwise, and sometimes unhelpful, to both parties to hold anyone in a relationship against their will.

HEALING Many herbs have healing properties which can help from both a physical and a magical viewpoint. A practitioner working from both points of view can be of tremendous help in managing illness. However, always remember to advise anyone you work with in this way to seek qualified medical assistance. Never allow yourself to be drawn into being a substitute for medical help.

HEALTH Not only the smell of herbs and plants, but also their vibration, can help to prevent illness and restore good health. So, if you are prone to illness, carry health herbs with you and make sure they are always as fresh as possible.

LUCK is the knack of being in the right place at the right time and being able to act on instinct. Luck herbs help you create your own good fortune. Once you have such a foundation, you can build upon it.

MONEY It is sometimes easier to visualize the outcome of having money – i.e. what you are going to spend the money on – than visualizing actual money coming to you. Certain herbs create an environment in which things can happen. They enable the creation of the means to fulfil your needs – perhaps a gift, a pay rise or some such thing.
