Shamans, healers, and other medicine men and women used herbs’ valuable properties for centuries. Herbal magic possesses healing power for our physical well-being and magical power for our spiritual wellness. Many different species of plants formed its origin.
Herbs have magical uses that can help you expand spirituality and do intensely practical things like creating more success, prosperity, and protection from negative influences.
Herbs are used in numerous forms of spell-work. Smudging for purifying or blessing a space is a near-universal method found in many ancient traditions. It has also made its way into contemporary Witchcraft.
Resins are very concentrated, dried products made from plants and trees and are generally used as herbs. Suitable for some spells, primarily for their scents, are musk and ambergris delivered from animals.
For millennium’s people have used herbs and herbal blends with the intention of altering their world.
Herbs are believed to have correspondence. It is a Wiccan term which refers to the alignment of the herbs themselves. This can be a difficult concept to grasp fully for those who are new to herbalism and Wicca. It is essential for the adequate use of herbs in a magical context.
The best way to understand this concept is to begin to think of each plant as an individual like you would a person or an animal. You as a person have a gender, you have a planet that is dominant in your life, and you have an element that is most resonant to you. Even if you don’t know your planet or element of focus, they exist.
Herbs function the same way and are often also sacred to specific divine entities. To properly use the herbs, you must know the correspondence that is:
Only by understanding these things can you properly work with a herb.
Just as you would be ineffective if forced to work with an element that is not your natural resonant element, so our herbs will be weak if used without respect to their correspondence.
The other aspect of herbal correspondence is the specific power or meaning associated with each herb. If you use a plant that has a correspondence to power in a protective spell, it may or may not work as well as you had hoped.
Fortunately, there are many grimoires and other references available that provide accurate, detailed information regarding each herbs correspondence and meaning.
The concept of plants specifically herbs as a form of intelligent life is one that is gaining traction. Scientific studies are beginning to confirm what healers and shamans across the globe have known for
years that herbs are intelligent.
Plants have an intelligence that is real and well documented according to recent studies. It is not the same intelligence as our own, of course. Consider the basic definition of intelligence: the ability to solve problems. Plants do this. They develop techniques that allow them to flourish when the environment changes, they develop defenses against predators and maximize the use of their resources.
All these are the actions of an intelligent creature.
The most important aspect of plants as intelligent life is that they are infused with the spirit and power of nature itself. That is what gives plants their magical powers, and this is why they are so potent when used in spells.
With this understanding of plants as intelligent, we must make careful and deliberate choices when cutting them for use in spells. We would not senselessly destroy an animal for our use without thought and consideration. We should give plants that same respect. (Source)
If you’re a practicing Wicca and used to smudges or has created your mojo bag, you must have a proper way to keep and safely store all these herbs.
