You can use herbs and spices to add meaning to your spellwork.

  • You can throw them in the cauldron and burn them up with something.
  • You can dust objects with them for meaning.
  • You can roll them into candles.
  • You can even put most of them on your food or in your drinks.
  • You can put them in amulets or charms.
  • You can put them herbs in little bags and hang them to bless areas of the house.
  • You can mix them with loose incense.
  • You can toss them into the appropriate winds and make a wish.
  • You can grow your own of the herbs that you use the most and charge them by chanting or blessing them while they grow.
  • You can combine them with each other or other symbols; such as inscribing a rune for happiness on a candle and rubbing it with cinnamon for happy dreams.

Use your imagination and you will come up with some great ways to use these herbs and spices, most of which are available either at health food stores or your local supermarket.

Remember NEVER to put any herb on your food or in your drinks unless you are positive it is not poisonous! Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs is great for researching just this information.
