Magickal Herbs ~ myrrh, sandalwood, carnation

 



This blog post will touch on three herbs that I particularly enjoy, the third one I enjoy both magickally and mundanely, as a bouquet.  Just a hint, if you want to get a lady a bouquet of flowers that will have some lasting power and are beautiful to boot, get her carnations.  The first one is actually a resin, if you really want to get technical, and the second one is a bark.  But they all fall under the wonderful world of Herbs in my magickal practice.

The following herbs share the energy and power to heal.  Although these herbs have healing powers in common, they also contain individual energies, which can be used in a variety of spells and personal magick.




Myrrh

  • Energy: Receptive (Feminine)
  • Planet: Moon
  • Element: Water
  • Deities: Isis, Adonis, Ra, Marian
  • Powers: Protection, Exorcism, healing, Spirituality
  • Ritual Uses: Myrrh was burned to Ra at noon in ancient Egypt, and was also fumed in the temples of Isis.
  • Magical Uses:
Burned as an incense myrrh purifies the area, lifts the vibrations and creates peace. However, it is rarely burned alone; usually in conjunction with frankincense or other resins. Myrrh increases the power of any incense to which it is added.

Myrrh is also included in healing incenses and sachets, and its smoke is used to consecrate, purify, and bless objects such as amulets, talismans, charms, and magical tools. Myrrh also aids meditation and contemplation. It is often added to sachets, usually with frankincense.

In hoodoo tradition it's believed that mixing myrrh with tobacco and damiana and sprinkling it in your mailbox, or on your phone, will call back a lost lover.  Make sure this is really what you want, remember there's usually a reason a relationship ends, and ending a relationship the second time is often messier and more unpleasant than the first go-around.




Sandalwood

  • Energy: Receptive (Feminine)
  • Planet: Moon
  • Element: Water
  • Powers: Protection, wishes, healing, exorcism, spirituality
  • Magical Uses:
Sandalwood powder is burned during protection, healing, and exorcism spells. When mixed with lavender it makes an incense designed to conjure spirits.

This fragrant wood possesses very high spiritual vibrations and is burned at séances and Full Moon rituals when mixed with frankincense. Write your wish on a chip of sandalwood and burn in the censer or cauldron. As it burns it sets the magic flowing, but remember to visualize your wish at the same time.

Sandalwood beads are protective and promote a spiritual awareness when worn.

Powdered sandalwood can be scattered about a place to clear it of negativity, and is also used as an incense base.




Carnation

  • Energy: Projective (Masculine)
  • Planet: Sun
  • Element: Fire
  • Deity: Jupiter
  • Powers: Protection, strength, healing
  • Magical Uses:
Worn during Elizabethan times to prevent coming to an untimely death on the scaffold, carnations can be used in all-purpose protective spells.

Carnations are placed in convalescent rooms to give the healing patient strength and energy, and are also used in healing spells. Place fresh carnations (red are best) on the altar during healing rituals and add the dried blossoms to sachets and incense for the same purpose.

Pay attention to the element of color, it's important.  Below are just a few of the basic colors to begin with:

  • Red blossoms: used for love, romance, and sex magick
  • Yellow blossoms: used to enhance communication and to spark creativity
  • Pink blossoms: used for peace and friendship, and to restore good feelings after an argument
  • White: to connect with the divine, to restore truth, to cleanse and purify
  • Purple blossoms:  handy for court cases and spells where growth and plenty are the desire




Disclaimer:

Never ingest any herbs, or feed them to someone else, if you are not absolutely sure they are safe! When in doubt, don't.
