Magickal Intentions – Money

PaganGreen Paganism and Witchcraft

Some plants increase a person’s financial scene; they will not create dollar bills out of thin air. The money may come in the form of unexpected gifts or legacies, but usually it will manifest as a raise in pay, a better job, a good investment, a loan suddenly repaid to you, and so on. Magic performed to gain money is …

Magickal Intention – Manifestations

PaganGreen Paganism and Witchcraft

Some types of magic specialize in raising spirits and “daemons” to visible appearance, usually within a circle or triangle. These herbs have long been burned so that the smoke can be used by the spirit as a medium in which to materialize. This magic, though dangerous and difficult to perform, is nonetheless traditional,

Magickal Intentions – Lust

PaganGreen Paganism and Witchcraft

Some plants have been used for centuries to create a sexual desire in those near them. Not surprisingly, they are commonly used to arouse another person’s lust, perhaps against their will. However, they are also used as love herbs are: to attract others who desire sexual contacts, and this is certainly less manipulatory than the former use.

Magickal Intentions – Luck

PaganGreen Paganism and Witchcraft

Luck is simply the knack for being in the right place at the right time, saying the right things, and acting on instinct. If a person is not naturally “lucky” such an ability can be acquired through the use of herbs. How this “luck” will manifest is left unstated, but luck herbs are usually utilized when a person has had …

Magickal Intentions – Fidelity

Many of the requests for information I receive concern ways of breaking hexes and lifting curses. Ninety-nine percent of these people are not now, and never will be, the target of curses or hexes.

Magickal Intention – Exorcism

PaganGreen Paganism and Witchcraft

This ancient form of magic comes in handy today—not necessarily to drive demons from people or buildings, but to clear away the negativity that daily living so amply provides. Purification herbs are simply less-powerful exorcism herbs and usually do not rid a place of evil entities.

Magickal Intentions – Love

PaganGreen Paganism and Witchcraft

Love; the endless quest for companionship, warmth, sexual contact, emotional fulfillment, and someone to talk to over coffee in the morning.

Thus, simply stated, love herbs will place you in situations where you will meet people, help you to overcome shyness (if necessary), and communicate that …

Herbal Incense

PaganGreen Paganism and Witchcraft

Incense composition and use is an art form in itself. Basically, an incense is any combination of plant materials, perhaps combined with essential oils and a base, which are mixed together and burned or smouldered on charcoal. (This type of incense is known as “raw” or “granular.” It is usually used in magic, rather than the stick or cone forms.) …

Herbal Oils

PaganGreen Paganism and Witchcraft

Though extracting oils by steam distillation and other methods is almost prohibitively expensive, we are spared this cost by the wide availability of essential oils and synthetics on the market today. Many so-called “essential oils” are actually synthetic; this does not negate their use in magic, however. If they smell good, use them. Though oils aren’t covered in this book, …

Herbal Ointments

An old form of herb magic as well as medicine, an ointment is simply any fatty substance to which powdered herbs and/or oils have been added. A good example of this is found in the text under MALLOW.

Herbal Baths

PaganGreen Paganism and Witchcraft

Baths are often used in herb magic, for they are an easy way to spread an herb’s power over the entire body. There are two methods; one, make a sachet (use about one-half to one cup of the appropriate enchanted herb) of cheesecloth. Drop this into the warm bath water. A better method entails the preparation of an infusion . …

Herbal Infusions

PaganGreen Paganism and Witchcraft

Infusion The infusion is the origin of the “potion” so identified with Witches. It is simply a process of soaking herbs in hot water. There are some refinements, however. Use no metal pots when boiling water or during the steeping process, for they interfere with the herb’s powers. Keep the liquid covered during infusion so that little steam is lost. …

Herbal Poppets

This is also known as the “voodoo doll,” although it has been in magical use at least 4,000 years and was only lately associated with voodoo.

Enchanting Herbs

Enchanting Herbs Prior to actually using herbs in magic, they can be enchanted. Enchantment (in a magical context) aligns the vibrations of the plants involved with your magical need.

Many books have been written on this subject, for students often complain that they have difficulty visualizing clearly. Usually, the ability is present but hindered by inhibitions. …

Magical Ways – The Altar

PaganGreen Paganism and Witchcraft

This is also called the spell table or work table, but I like the sound of “altar,” which is far less awkward, even though it gives a religious association to magic which may not always be deserved. However, “altar” will be used throughout this book. A great deal of magic does not need the presence of an altar, but certain …

Magical Ways – Tools

PaganGreen Paganism and Witchcraft

Tools Herb magic requires blessedly few tools compared to other types of magic. A mortar and pestle set is necessary to grind herbs and seeds, and a large wooden or ceramic bowl will be needed for enchanting herbs. Keep a large glass or enamelled pot (avoid metals) exclusively for brewing infusions or “potions.” Simple sewing supplies (needles, pins, scissors, cotton …
