Keeping my hands busy
Post # 1
I got bored this morning found roses so I boiled spring water with the rose peddles to make rose water but then I started putting in mint, clove, a pinch of parsley, a dash of cinnamon and salt and a alittle bay...what can I do with it?


Powers: Protection, Psychic Powers, Healing,
Purification, Strength
Ritual Uses: The ancient priestesses of
Apollo chewed bay leaves to induce a prophetic
state, and also inhaled their fumes.
Bay leaves are used as decorations at Yule.
Magical Uses: Bay is used in clairvoyance
and wisdom brews, although its taste is
strong. Bay leaves are placed beneath the
pillow to induce prophetic dreams, and are
also burned to cause visions.
It is a protection and purification herb
par excellence and is worn as an amulet
to ward off negativity and evil, burned or
scattered during exorcism rituals, placed
in the windows to protect against lightning,
and hung up to prevent poltergeists
from working any mischief in the house. A
sprig of bay is used to sprinkle water during
purification ceremonies, and the tree
planted near the home protects its inhabitants
against sickness. Bay leaves mixed
with sandalwood can be burned to remove
curses and evil spells.

Powers: Protection, Exorcism, Love, Money
Magical Uses: Burned as an incense, cloves
attract riches, drive away hostile and negative
forces, produce spiritual vibrations,
and purify the area.
Cloves are burned as an incense to stop
others from gossiping about you.
Worn or carried, cloves attract the
opposite sex and bring comfort to the

Powers: Spirituality, Success, Healing, Power,
Psychic Powers, Lust, Protection, Love
Ritual Uses: Cinnamon oil was used as part
of a holy anointing oil by the ancient
Hebrews. The leaves of the cinnamon tree
were woven into wreaths which were used
to decorate ancient Roman temples. The
Egyptians used cinnamon oil during the
mummification process
Magical Uses: Cinnamon, when burned as an
incense, raises high spiritual vibrations, aids
in healing, draws money, stimulates psychic
powers and produces protective vibrations.
Cinnamon is also used in making sachets
and infusions for these purposes.

Powers: Money, Lust, Healing, Travel,
Exorcism, Protection
Magical Uses: Mint has long been used in
healing potions and mixtures, and the
fresh leaves rubbed against the head are
said to relieve headaches. Mint worn at
the wrist assures that you will not be ill.
Stomach problems can be alleviated by
stuffing a green poppet with mint and
anointing it with healing oils.
Mint is also used in travel spells and to
provoke lust. Its bright green leaves and
crisp scent led to its use in money and
prosperity spells; the easiest of which is to
place a few leaves in the wallet or purse, or
to rub where your money is kept.
To rid a place of evil, sprinkle salt water
with a sprinkler made of fresh sprigs of
mint, marjoram and rosemary. Fresh mint
laid on the altar will call good spirits to be
present and aid you in magic. Mint is also
kept in the home for protection.
"Mint" is a general term for any of the
Mentha family.

Powers: Lust, Protection, Purification
Magical Uses: When eaten, parsley provokes
lust and promotes fertility, but if you are in
love don't cut parsley?you'll cut your love
as well.
Though the plant has associations with
death and is often regarded as evil, the
Romans tucked a sprig of parsley into their
togas every morning for protection. It is
also placed on plates of food to guard it
from contamination.
Parsley is also used in purification baths,
and those to stop all misfortune. A wreath
of parsley worn on the head prevents (or
delays) inebriation.

Powers: Love, Psychic Powers, Healing, Love
Divination, Luck, Protection

also by the looks of it it could also be a love potion because all the ingredients also have a love attribute to them

Ahh nice stuff you have in this. I think maybe you could also use it as a meditation tool, a general purpose meditional aid of a sort, to think upon whatever it is you need to "see" or do magickally. ;)

Well they'd make an awesome protection blend, you could possibly flick the water around your your house in some sort of ritual or event just with the intent of protecting your house and those within. Then maybe bury the herbs on your property somewhere?
