What is herb magick?

I bet you use herbs almost every day. Whether it’s for your savory meals or comforting teas, we use herbs daily. Believe it or not, you’re probably using herbs with great healing properties. The purpose of herbs is more than to add flavor or an extra ‘oomph’ to your dish.

Now, what makes using herbs different from herbal magic? The secret is that magic is based on one thing: intention. According to Scott Cunningham, writer of magical herbs, the foundation “of herb magic -and all magic- is the power.” In other words, power is the energy behind creation as we know it. Cunningham calls it “the very substance of existence itself.”

“Magic is the practice of causing change through the use of powers as yet not defined or accepted by science. […] magic can be used when no other means are available.”Scott Cunningham, 

Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs

You have come across this article for a purpose. This is your moment to gain all the information you need to use herb magick.

How does it work?

So here’s the deal: there must be a reason to call upon magical powers. This reason is a need.

“A desire often masquerades as a need, but in magic a ‘desire’ is not enough; there must exist an all-encompassing need.”

Scott Cunningham, Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs

In what ways can we use herbs for magic?

Now that you understand your need, the good news is that you can perform herbal magic even when you prepare your favorite tea. The use of herbs for their healing properties is very common. Did your grandmother have any home remedies that consisted of mixing up a few herbs or a special tea that made you feel better whenever you had a cold? Then, you know that herbs can be used for magick and medicinal purposes. That’s what makes herbs so special!

In medicine plants, we can find allied forces that help us attack what causes illness. What these herbs do is try to bring balance to the organism that is vulnerable to illnesses. The secret of herbology lies in eliminating the causes and not symptoms. Nature has been for ages the foundation of medicine. Yet to ease symptoms, seeking medical advice and diagnosis is best advised.

If you find pride in having a green thumb, gardening becomes a sacred space where magic dwells. Or if there’s no space for a garden, cooking can become a healing ritual anyone can experience in the comfort of their homes. The creation of spells can start with the pot. By adding a specific herb that goes with the spell you’re creating, food preparation becomes a powerful ritual.

Warning! Please, be careful with poisonous plants. Even inhaling the smoke can be dangerous.
