WITCHíS HERBAL
Herbal lore has been practiced for Centuries by Wise men and women who knew the land and understood nature and its powers. All herbs have both medicinal and magickal properties and, today, these powers are undergoing a revival to enhance both our bodies and our lives.
With the knowledge of the Old Ways, the Green Witch has put together a list of herbs and spices, gums, resins and barks that have both medicinal and magickal powers to help you gain control of your health, your wealth and your happiness.
 

This witchís herbal list contains information of the herbs, both magickal and medicinal.
 

HERBAL LIST
    Gums and Resins:

Benzoin:  Burn to purify a room, or use with cinnamon to attract custom to your business.

Copal: As an incense, use for protection, purification, spirituality or to purify crystals in the smoke.

Dragon's Blood: Add a pinch to any spell and it will ensure luck whilst protecting against any backfire situations.

Frankincense: This resin, when burnt, releases powerful vibrations which uplifts an area and drives out negativity. Use to induce visions, and aid meditation. Mix with rosemary to make an all-round incense.

Myrrh: Burn to purify the area, lift the vibrations and create an aura of peace. Always burn with other herbs and resins. When added to a mixture, it makes the incense more powerful.

Herbs:

Balm of Gilead: Carry the bud to mend a broken heart and/or attract a new love into your life. Steep the bud in red wine for an effective love drink or burn as an incense to aid spirits manifestations.

Black Pepper: Mix with salt and sprinkle about the home to dispel any evil or negative vibrations. Add to food to enhance circulation and boost the immune system, eliminate toxins and improve digestion.

Celery Seed: Crush the seed, tie in a small piece of muslin, and inhale to still the conscious mind and awaken the psychic. Chewing the seeds will aid consentration. Infuse 1tsp seeds in a cup of water and drink daily for arthritis, rheumatism and gout.

Chamomile,German: An infusion added to the bath will attract love into your life but, if you wash your hands in it, it will attract money. Use as a hair rinse to lighten blond hair, whilst drinking the tea with honey will aid sleeplessness, headaches, menstrual and menopausal problems. As a lotion, the infusion will calm sunburn and eczema. In children and babies, use a weak solution for colic, teething, vomiting and diarrhoea. An useful all-round herb.

Cinnamon Bark:  Burn as an incense with benzoin to attract money, or with copal or frankincense to stimulate psychic powers. Add a decoction to honey and lemon for a wonderful cold remedy.

Clove Bud: Burn as an incense to attract riches, drive away negative vibrations and purify the area. Carry the buds to stop gossip, and also to attract members of the opposite sex. Medicinally, clove is a powerful antiseptic, clearing phlegm and fighting infection (add with cinnamon to the above cold remedy). The tea aids hayfever sufferers, especially if sweetened with the local honey.

Coriander Seed: Add the powdered seed to wine for a lust potion, or crush the seed and inhale the aroma to help memory, relieve headaches and speed the body's healing ability.

Fennel Seed:  Hang the seed in a muslin bag above doors or in windows to give protection to the home. Fennel tea is an excellent remedy for the digestive system, kidney stones, cystitis and weight loss, whilst as a gargle, it will relieve sore throats. It is also gentle enough for babies and children with colic or teething problems, and pregnant mothers with morning sickness. A warm infusion also makes an excellent eyewash for sore eyes.

Fenugreek seeds:  Now this wee spell is brilliant for attracting money - half-fill a small jar with the seeds and leave off the lid. Each day, add a couple more seeds until the jar is full.Return the spent seeds to the ground. If the money has materialised, then it is done. If more is needed, then start again. Well, it certainly works for me.

Galangal root: Magickally, carry this herb if you need to attract good luck, or put it in a leather pouch with a piece of silver if you need to attract money. Medicinally, this is a member of the ginger family,so is an excellent remedy for indigestion, stomach pain and vomiting. Drink the infusion sip by sip to stop seasickness.

Grains of paradise:  To bring into your life whatever you desire, hold a few grains into your hands, make your wish, then throw a few of them in each direction, starting at the north and ending in the west. Repeat regularly until your wish materialises. It is done.

Lavender flowers: In incense, lavender promotes rest and infuses the area with peaceful and calming vibrations. As a tea, it calms the nerves, reduces muscle tension and relieves indigestion and colic.  It is also a handy remedy for tension headaches and asthma.

Marjoram, sweet: Used magickally in cooking, this herb will strengthen love, and medicinally, it lifts the spirits. Marjoram tea helps regulate the female cycle - drink 3-4 days prior to a period. Add the herb to sleep pillows to ensure a deep sleep, whilst giving marjoram to someone who is depressed will ensure that happiness returns.
 

Mugwort:   This herb is a very powerful addition to any magickal collection. Drink the infusion (and despite what you will read, this herb is actually very palatable) before scrying or any form of divination, as it aids psychic ability. Wash your crystal ball or scrying mirror in the infusion to keep it magickally cleansed, whilst standing the sphere on a bed of mugwort will aid the scrying. A sachet of mugwort hung over the front door will keep evil away, whilst carrying a sachet will increase lust and fertility. If you are an  astral traveller, then it will be easier to project with mugwort by your side. Medicinally, mugwort tea is excellent for the  menopause.
 

Mustard seeds:  Mustard stimulates digestion and enhances absorption, whilst an infusion will fight off colds and infections, lethargy and depression, used as a footbath (yellow) or as a gargle, it is antiseptic for sore throats and tonsillitis. Mustard with your meal helps the body to fight colds, arthritis and rheumatism.

Nutmeg: Carry for luck and protection, and sprinkle the ground nutmeg into candles or incense to attract money. String the nutmeg and place around a baby's neck for a herbal teething ring.

Patchouli leaf: Magickally, this leaf is mainly used to attract money. Add to prosperity incense, cash tins and purses or sprinkle in a circle around a green candle to attract wealth, prosperity and fertility (another favourite spell of mine - simple but effective).

Poppy seeds: Carry the seeds to attract luck and money, whilst eating the seeds will help achieve pregnancy as they promote fertility

Sage: Burn sage to banish evil and negativity. Crush between the fingers, inhale and visualise money and abundance coming into your life. Medicinally, this infusion is an excellent gargle for sore throats or footbath for fungal infections.  Take a leaf and rub it on your teeth for an extra clean feeling. Dring the infusion if you suffer from night sweats, or have had a viral infection, as sage is a tonic to the system, lifts the spirits, relieves tiredness and lethargy and helps with concentration. Not for pregnant or lactating women.

Star Anise:  Add to incense to increase psychic powers, and wear the seed to promote psychic ability and bring luck.

Thyme: Inhale to stimulate the conscious mind, as it closes down the psychic - place in sleep pillows to prevent nightmares. Thyme enhances the immune system and aids the body to fight infection, so drinking the infusion and adding thyme to food will relieve asthma and bronchitis, soothe the digestion and relieve urinary infections and water retention. Adding the infusion to the bath makes an excellent remedy for exhaustion, insomnia, anxiety and depression, and as a gargle makes a great mouthwash and remedy for sore throats.

Yarrow:  Use yarrow to attract love and rekindle friendships. Drinking an infusion will aid psychic powers. Medicinally, yarrow is excellent at the start of an infection, cold, sore throat or flu, especially for children, sweetened with honey, as it causes the body to sweat to clear toxins away from the body. Its duiretic  properties makes it a useful tea for urinary infections and fluid  retention. Externally, use the infusion for sore eyes, as a cleanser and toner, and as a hair rinse for dandruff and "falling hair".

Recipes:
 

For Centuries, skin care products have been individually made in the household kitchen from natural, local ingredients to meet the daily needs of the family.  Using age-old wisdom of herbs and other natural products such as beeswax, to produce a range of simple preparations" like granny used to make" with ingredients you can pronounce.

Cream for Hands
A popular need is the cream for dry skin. Used for hands, face, knees and elbows, beeswax cream can be made for any dry skin problem. If your skin is really in a mess and needs more help use Cocoa Butter.

Beeswax Lip Balms
Forget about petroleum jelly - beeswax and almond oil combine to make a very effective and long-lasting lip balm. Flavour it with essential oils of either lemon, tangerine or peppermint.

For skin care use:

Light cleansing use Ylang Ylang
Nourishing cleanser use cocoa butter and beeswax
Moisturiser use almond oil, coconut oil, beeswax and floral water:

For the toners/astringent, after cleansing and before moisturising, then simply use a hydrolat. A hydrolat is the water/herb portion of extracting the essential oils and are great, natural rememdies for all sorts.
 


Face masks:


 

Tinctures are the most potent way of taking herbs. The herbs are macerated in a mixture of alcohol and water, to extract all their medicinal properties, and the alcohol content ensures their lasting qualities as well as extracting the properties that are not soluble in water. The tinctures are then generally taken in drop form, diluted in water and taken internally up to 3 times daily unless otherwise stated. For such problems are eczema, cold sores, varicose veins and other skin problems, they can be diluted and applied topically to apply the remedy from the outside as well as the inside.
 

Calendula (Marigold):is an excellent detoxifying, internal remedy for external problems such as eczema, acne, varicose veins and thrush, as it is anti-fungal, antiseptic, anti-bacterial and anti-viral. It can also be diluted and applied topically to skin problems to speed the healing process. Apply neat to cold sores for a quick remedy for an annoying problem. The tincture is also excellent for internal problems such as peptic ulcers and colitis, as it acts as an anti-inflammatory on the digestive system.

Chamomile German: A gentle, calming tincture for anxiety, stress, insomnia and stress-related digestive problems such as indigestion, IBS and peptic ulcers. Also use for Crohns disease and to ease period pains.

Chaste Berry:A tonic to the female gynaecological system, use for hormonal-related problems such as infertiltity

Devils Claw Root: Take between 5-15 ml daily to relieve arthritis, rheumatism, gout and muscular back pain, as it is anti-inflammatory thus reduces swelling and diminishes pain. For diabetics, it is now a valuable herb for reducing the need for insulin, but MUST be discussed with your doctor first.
DO NOT USE IF SUFFERING FROM STOMACH OR DUODENAL ULCER, OR IF PREGNANT.

Echinacea:Use to stimulate the immune system to counter both viral and bacterial infections such as colds, flu, coughs, sore throats, tonsillitis, bronchitis, M.E., and allergies such as asthma. Also use to fight recurring mouth ulcers and cold sores. Can also be applied topically.
WORKS MORE EFFICIENTLY IF TAKEN FOR 3 WEEKS, THEN GIVEN A REST FOR A FEW DAYS.

Eyebright: Take the tincture internally for bad colds or hay fever, where streaming eyes are a problem, as it has a drying, analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect. Also, dilute and use as an eyewash for conjunctivitis, sties, itching, tired or strained eyes.

Feverfew: Used daily, feverfew has been shown to lessen the frequency of migraine attacks, but is also used every 30 minutes during an attack.
DO NOT USE IF PREGNANT OR TAKING ANY BLOOD-THINNING DRUGS.
 

Ginkgo Biloba: Ginkgo retards the ageing process, so can be used to alleviate age-related problems such as short-term memory loss, concentration, headaches, depression, degenerative senility, high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis, and angina. It can help prevent heart attacks and strokes, and improve visual acuity, hearing, moods and balance. Getting a reputation as the "herbal Viagra" as it reaches the parts needed to be reached. It also helps tinnitus and children with dyslexia.
NOT TO BE TAKEN FOR PROLONGED PERIODS.
 

Hyssop: This undervalued herb is extremely useful for warding off infection and enhancing immunity. It is a decongestant and expectorant, so use for colds, flu, bronchitis, catarrh, sinus problems, asthma and pleurisy. Dilute as a gargle for sore throats, and use to recover afterwards to aid the recovery of the immune system. Combine with liquorice for stubborn coughs and bronchitis.
NOT TO BE TAKEN AS A PREVENTATIVE, BUT DURING AN INFECTION.
 

Juniper Berry: Juniper reduces water retention, increases the flow of urine, flushes poison and waste from the body and washes out the urinary tract, so use for Cystitis and other urinary infections. Use only for short periods. DO NOT TAKE IF PREGNANT OR SUFFERING FROM KIDNEY DISEASE.
 

Lime Flower (Linden Blossom): This wonderful remedy is useful for all problems relating to anxiety and stress. It relaxes the heart, calms the nerves, eases panic attacks and palpitations and lowers raised blood pressure. Also handy for stress-related digestive problems.
 

Liquorice: This sweet root is anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic and anti-arthritic (same effect as cortisone). It is well documented for healing stomach ulcers and relieving heartburn and indigestion, it is soothing and healing for respiratory problems, such as coughs, bronchial asthma and chest infections and very useful for hayfever and allergic rhinitis. It also helps the system to recover following steroid treatment. Mix with other remedies to make them more palatable
 

Meadowsweet: This is natureís aspirin, it has the same analgesic effect as aspirin but protects the stomach by stimulating mucus to line the stomach. Its anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects make it good for arthritis, rheumatism and gout if the joints are "hot and swollen". It relieves headaches, and fever in colds and flu, and is helpful for cystitis, kidney gravel and stones. Its antacid effect makes it useful for indigestion, heartburn, colic, peptic ulcers and griping pain. It also relaxes you to aid sleep during its use for any of the above. Natureís gentle but effective aspirin. DO NOT TAKE IF ALLERGIC TO ASPIRIN.
 

Myrrh: Use diluted tincture as a gargle for sore throats, and an effective mouthwash for gum infections and mouth ulcers. Combine with witch hazel for an effective remedy for cold sores. NOT TO BE TAKEN INTERNALLY

Nettle: This cleansing herb restores vitality to the system by ridding the body of toxins. It clears the skin, relieves fluid retention & cystitis, whilst softening any kidney stones and gravel, and is a remedy for bedwetting and incontinence.

Crystals and Gemstones
 

Gemstones and Crystals can help you to transform your life by being absorbed into the aura to heal the body on a holistic level, and being used and worn to attract health, wealth and prosperity on a magickal level.
To gain these wonderful benefits, you must always remember to cleanse and program each crystal, and keep it for your use only.
 

To cleanse a crystal, it must be able to release the negativity into another element. This can be done by using one of the following techniques;

Wash in a river or in rainwater, and leave to dry in the sun for a couple of hours (elements of water and fire)
 

Leave outside in the elements for 24 hours (Sun and Moon, Wind and Rain)

Fill a clay pot with soil and bury the crystal for a day (element of Earth)

Hold the crystal and smudge with incense, by holding the stone in the smoke of a purifying herb (Element of Air).

Once cleansed, hold the Crystal in your Power hand (the hand you write with), and ask the stone to help/heal you, and that the stone will only be used to the benefit and good of all, thus empowering it so it cannot be used in a disharmonious way to hurt or harm anyone.
