Things To Know

4 Herbs; 4 WOWS!

Here are some everyday used Herbs and their Magickal Properties!

Thyme-(Thymus vulgaris)

Folk Name- Common Thyme, Garden Thyme

Gender: Feminine

Planet: Venus

Element: Water

Powers: Health, Healing, Sleep, Psychic Powers, Love, Purification, Courage

Magical Uses: Thyme is burned to attract good health and it is also worn for this purpose. It is also used in healing spells. Placed beneath the pillow, it ensures restful sleep and a pleasant lack of nightmares. Worn, thyme aids in developing psychic powers, and women who wear a sprig of thyme in the hair make themselves irresistible.

Thyme is also a purificatory herb; the Greeks burned it in their temples  to purify them and so thyme is often burned prior to magical rituals to cleanse the area. In spring a magical cleansing bath composed of marjoram and thyme is taken to ensure all the sorrows and ills of the past are removed from the person.

Thyme is also carried and smelled to give COURAGE and energy. If you wear it you will be able to see fairies.

Magickal Herbs

Lavender- (Lavendula officinale or L. vera)

Folk Names: Elf Leaf, Nard, Nardus, Spike

Gender: Masculine

Planet: Mercury

Element: Air

Powers: Love, Protection, Sleep, Chastity, Longevity, Purification, Happiness, Peace

Magical Uses: Lavender has long been used in love spells and sachets. Clothing nabbed with the fragrant flowers (or lavender placed in drawers with clothes) attracts love. The scent of lavender particularly attracts men.

These flowers are also burned or smouldered to induce sleep and rest, and are scattered about the home to maintain peacefulness. The plant is so powerful that, if when depressed one gazes upon the plant, all sorrow will depart and a joyous feeling will settle upon the observer.

Indeed, the order of lavender is conductive to long life, and so should be smelled as often as possible if this is a concern.

Lavender is also used in healing mixtures, carried to see ghost and worn to protect against the Evil Eye. It is added to purification baths.

Rosemary- (Rosemarinus officinalis)

Folk Names: Compass Weed, Dew of the Sea, Elf Leaf, Guardrobe, Incensier, Libantois (Greek), Polar Plant, Sea Dew

Gender: Masculine

Planet: Sun

Element: Fire

Powers: Protection, Love, Lust, Mental Powers, Exorcism, Purification, Healing, Sleep, Youth

Magical Uses: Rosemary, when burned, emits powerful cleansing and purifying vibrations, and so is smouldered to rid a place of negativity, especially prior to performing magic. It is one of the oldest incenses. Rosemary is also hung on the porch and doorposts to keep thieves from the house and is carried to remain healthy.

If  you wish to receive knowledge or the answer to a question, burn rosemary on charcoal and smell its smoke.

 

Cinnamon- (Cinnamomum zeylanicum, C verum)

Folk Names: Sweet Wood,  Ceylon cinnamon

Gender: Masculine

Planet: Sun

Deities: Venus, Aphrodite

Powers: Spirituality, Success, Healing, Power, Psychic Powers, Lust, Protection, Love

Ritual Uses: Cinnamon oil was used as part of a holy anointing oil by the ancient Hebrews. The Leaves of the cinnamon tree were woven into wreaths which were used to decorate ancient Roman temples. The Egyptians used cinnamon oil during the mummification process.

Magical Uses: Cinnamon, when burned as an incense, raises high spiritual vibrations, aids in healing, draws money, stimulates psychic powers and produces protective vibrations.

Cinnamon is also used in making sachets and infusions for these purposes.

  1. Never knew that Thyme can give us courage and energy! I will also use it for my child so he may have a more restful sleep (hopefully). He keeps having these nightmares and I’ve already tried lavender but it didn’t work for him. I will place some beneath his pillow for a few days and see how it goes.
