No matter what type of magickal system one follows, it is a pretty good bet, that at one time herbs have played a big part in many major Religions and Belief Systems. Plants and their essences contain energy, which varies according to the plant, that aids in achieving the result of a spell. Some plants have, through time and trial, been shown to benefit certain types of spellwork. These are known as magickal herbs.
Herbs have a number of different uses in magickal workings. According to Celeste Moondancer, "They can be made into magickal oils, condensers and balms for anointing the body, candles, tools, gemstones, amulets and pouches and so on. In loose form they can be mixed with other herbs or used by themselves as incense, dream pillows, various sachets that can be carried or used in baths for specific intentions. The seeds of some of these herbs can be strung together and worn as necklaces, the flowers woven together as garlands or used to adorn alters. There is more, but you get the idea."
Some herbs listed in this book may be used for different and multi purposes.
