If I were to start making a garden for witchcraft/spells, what would be the best things to grow?
Omg I love this question! (thanks for asking!) any chance for me to talk about plants YESSS
okay! Here’s a list of good starter plants you can find just about anywhere. Walmart, Home Depot and lowes or any nursery. :)
•Garden Sage-astringent//protection, purification, wishes. Dry it out and burn it for smoke cleansing or use small amounts of dried leaves in tea.
•Lavender-nervous disorders, insomnia, anxiety disorders//love, protection, sleep, purification, peace, happiness. Good in tea or to put under your pillow to help calm nerves and induce a peaceful sleep.
•Dandelion (yes. The weed.)-liver disorders, diabetes, anemia//divination, wishes, calling spirits. All parts of this plant are edible. The roots are good in tea, the greens are great in salad!
•Rosemary-heart palpitations, headaches, sleep//protection, purification, love, memory. Leaves are nice dried in tea and can be added fresh to salads and cooking.
•Thyme-astringent//courage, health, anti-nightmare. Same as Rosemary.
•Mint (spearmint or peppermint)-astringent//happiness, love, passion, prosperity, purification, sleep, healing, psychic powers. The greens are great fresh in cooking, smell nice when dried out and used in potpourri, and taste wonderful when used in tea.
•Marigold-bee/wasp stings, swelling, stimulant, fevers//protection, clairvoyant dreams. Rub leaves on bug bites or stings to keep swelling and pain and itching down. Dried greens in tea are helpful in combatting fevers.
•Verbena (Aka Vervain)-calms mind, relieves stress, sedative//love, protection, creativity. Dried leaves are tasty in tea. Smells great! Put some in your pillow case for a restful nights sleep. Also the blooms are multicolored and lovely.
•Mexican Heather-anti inflammatory, astringent, promotes faster healing//protection, rain-making, luck. These gorgeous flowers are amazing. Dried leaves in tea~
•Bamboo-antioxidant, regulates menstruation, indigestion//protection, luck, hex-breaking, wishes. The shoots and leaves are packed with yummy goodness.
All of these are pretty and relatively hardy! I would also recommend watering them with charged moon water, and buying jewelry with Moss Agate in it (I have a moss agate bracelet I wear). Wearing it while you work with your plants will enhance your ‘green thumb’. Also talk to them and make sure they gets lots of sunlight and water
