think of asexuality/not feeling sexual attraction like this:

imagine you were born being unable to smell. you could see, hear, feel, and taste but you could not smell. people all around you tell you about how flowers smell. how some flowers smell sweet and others can smell more bitter. you’re confused, because you believe that bitter and sweet are words to describe the taste of food. people tell you about how flowers smell, and they hold flowers up to your nose to get you to smell them.

you smell nothing, and you might even sneeze from the pollen. you tell them to stop making you smell the flowers, because you just can’t. and they tell you, “flowers smell so good though!” and no matter how hard you try, you just can’t…smell…the…flowers.

and you can appreciate how the flowers look, and how they grow in nature, and you can draw them and read about them and appreciate the flowers but you are literally unable to smell them.

Magickal Folk Names for Herbs

Having knowledge of herbs and plants (either magically or medicinally) during the Middle Ages, often was reason enough to accuse a woman of being a “witch,” so there is no doubt some of the country folk at the time took these herbal folk names literal.  Chances are, these names were used merely as descriptors to help remember them easier.  Most plants were given names descriptive of their uses and others were given names for something they generally resembled. Spells written by witches in ancient times were often written with such descriptors, which personally i believe to be a form of secret coding.

Here is a small list of “witchy” herb names (most of these are already floating around the community) that you can use in your craft when you create your spells.  This list could be a great addition to any Grimoire and i hope you find them as useful as i do.

Enjoy ~~~  Cannawitch
