Lovely work, Del! Enjoyed this post. (Perhaps this should be in herbalism though.)

For protection, i'd have to say Angelica is one of my favorites, along with asafoetida, garlic, sage, pine and acacia.

I sometimes make a powder from a few of those herbs and mix them together to form a sort of protection powder, and I find it works rather well. I add a pinch of black pepper at the end.

Wonderful post and very helpful to anyone interested in starting work in the area of herbal magic.

Ellen Dugan is also a good choice for anyone interested in researching herbs and their magical properties. In her book Herb Magic for Beginners: Down-to-Earth Enchantments. She gives lists of various herbs and their magical properties as well as an herbal substitution list.
