Magical Herbs – How to Use Herbs and Plants in your Magic Spells and Rituals

You might have heard of Herbalism or the medicinal and curing properties of herbs and plants from your grandmother. But have you heard of herbs and plants with magical meaning and extraordinary magical properties?

First of all, when using herbs in magic, you can intensify the power of a spell while also increasing the energy of the intention behind the spell. If you choose to add herbs to a spell working, you will find that not only is the spell more effective, but the effects are often greater than you imagined they could be. Herbs and plants hold their own energy, and by adding their power to yours in a spell, the results can be dramatic. Herbs for protection and herbs for healing are most popular, but there are many additional ways for you to implement the energy of nature into your spell work.

The Energy of Nature

Nature is already an energy source we tap into. From the foods we eat to the products we use every day, we always look to nature to give us energy. When using plants and herbs in magic, you can tap into the innate energy stores that plants hold. Plants live and breathe, just like humans do, though many people forget this. They have their own energy to help them live, grow, and be fruitful. As a result, if plants did not have their own energy, they would die off – and humans may not exist. In this complicated relationship, we can certainly see that each plant and herb has its own power to share.

From the lavender with its calming properties to mugwort and its potential to cause visions, the energy of plants allows us to access the energy of nature and then direct it in spells. Plants are a part of their surroundings and environment as well, picking up the energy of an area and the people who take care of the plant. These energies, too, can work within the spell to help bring an intention into being.

Creating a Spell Recipe for Success

Choosing the right herbs for use in magic is essential. You want to think about the plant’s energy and how it relates to the spell working you do. Also, think about the energy you want to go into the spell and think about the outcome you want. If you want to have a peaceful resolution to a problem, you should use peaceful plants. If you want to intensify a project or a goal, you need to find herbs that can follow that energy pattern. While certain plants are recommended for certain spell workings, listening to the plant and using what calls to you is another way to ensure you’ve chosen the right plant for your unique needs.

Herbs and plants used in magic are as varied as the spells in which they are used. By thinking of the natural world as being filled with allies and with helpers, you can see how adding pieces of nature to your spell working makes sense – and it increases the power of the spells themselves.

Most Important Herbs and Plants for Spells

Herbs and Plants for SpellsHerbs and magic have gone together for many millennia. This is because herbs have sacred properties that have medicinal purposes in some cases and other purposes in other cases.

Herbs have a specific energy that emanates from them and affects magical powers. Some herbs you might know of that have magical uses include sage, rosemary, and lavender—all-powerful herbs.

How to Use Magical Herbs in your Spell Work

There are several ways you can use herbs in your spell work and add power to your rituals:

  1. You can include the herbs into the spell by mixing them and visualizing the effects and results because this way, the herbs pass on their energy to the spell, making it work with added strength and vigor.
  2. The best way for you to include the magical herbs is by simply rolling your oiled/anointed candles into the herb or mixture of the herbs. This is how you pass the energy of the herbs onto the candles, their flame, and thereby to the spell.
  3. Burn herbs on small charcoal blocks or disks.
  4. Place some herbs on a metal incense burner tray and then light them on fire.
  5. Burn all sturdy herbs, such as sage, cedar, and mugwort, directly. These herbs are flammable enough that you can directly light them on fire.
  6. The easiest way to use magical herbs is by setting them on fire for cleansing. Therefore, do this before, after, and even during a spell. These magical herbs help clear away negative energy to help ready a person for a spell or remove any negative energy that a spell has brought to the surface.
  7. Make actual potions and use them in your spell work.
  8. By creating oils and tinctures, incense, and herb bags, a person can continue to work on the spell for months at a time. With each new spell working, that herbal essence or product can have more energy added to it.

Keep in mind that a little goes a long way with using herbs. That’s why it is recommended to start with a small amount and then add more if needed.
