How to use herbs in magic?

There are many ways to use herbs in magic. Here are some ideas.

You can make powerful amulets out of herbs. Carry a stem of one or more different ones to continually send your intention to the universe.

Scatter crushed herbs around the house or keep them in sachets. Mixed with unscented talc or corn flour, they make a very good body powder. (Note: if you have sensitive skin or are allergic, test the powder on a small area of skin before using it on a larger area of the body.)

Burning herbs quickly fills a room with magical intent. Add them to incense sticks or coat candles in enhanced herbs.

Infusions transfer energy from dry herbs to liquid, this opens up new possibilities for the practitioner. You can use them as a house cleansing liquid, a bathing liquid or drink them as a tea. (Note: before consuming any herb, check with a reliable source and make sure it is safe for human consumption. Some plants are poisonous). You can use the infusions in oily form for body lubrication, candles and ritual tools.

To change a situation, throw herb seeds to the wind and concentrate on what you want to change. Once the seeds begin to sprout, the changes will begin.

Growing herbs at home or in the garden provides a continuous and active form of communication with the cosmos, reminding the universe that the combined spell continues indefinitely.
