In ancient times, the only wisdom and healing power came from the Earth, in the form of herbs and plants. In such times, medicine and magick were one and the same. Herbs are a perfect example of what real magic is all about. Herb magick operates on a level of sensation, and can open the door to long lasting changes.
Below is a table of common herbs and their medicinal and magickal properties. Of course there are too many to include here, and ones that are poisonous have been left out deliberately, to avoid any problems the novice may encounter. Use this as a quick reference guide , if and when you decide to create a little Herb Magick of your own.

USING HERBS
One of the easiest way to use herbs is in an herb bath. Use cheese cloth or muslin and make a pouch of sorts. You can also try finding reusable tea bags made of a porous material. I purchase these at the local organic foods store. Fill the bag with herbs and suspend it below the faucet, so the water runs over it as the bath fills. Once the bath is drawn, let the bag float in the water to continuously add the mixture to the bath.

Cleansing and Purifying Herb Bath
3 parts marjoram
3 parts thyme

Protection Herb Bath
4 parts rosemary
3 parts bay
2 parts basil
2 parts fennel
1 part dill
