Hello Draconius here i just wanted to give you guys a little tutorial on using herbs and spices in your spells. Using herbs can be hard and mind boggling sometimes but its easier than it looks. Shamans have been using medicinal herbs for years but it wasn't until the 1800's that native american shamans incorporated them into spells. Most herbs are self explanatory like lavender for example it is quite obvious its use is in love and attraction spells. If a certain pant or flower your using in a spell has a bitter smell it is most likely used to ward of enemies (bully's bad dreams etc.) or if the plant has a sweet almost divine smell it is most likely used in love or sensual spells and so forth.
If you don't have any of these things you can use rose petals and common plants that you have in your garden just be sure they are not poisonous.
(TIP): Remember it is not the type of flower that matters it is the specific smell that it produces which is useful to the spell. I have created a herbal smell chart so that you can examine their different scents and their use.
Sweet: This smell is used to represent love and and the natural human body these smells are commonly used in love spells.
Bitter: These smells are used to ward off evil spirits or people you dislike
Spicy: these scents are used to help spice up your sexual life they help enhance you hormones and get you ready for a daring night
Neutral: these are spices like oregano and parsley if you put these leaves in cold water and put them over a wound it helps to sooth the pain.
Cold Smells: (mint) plants like mint and strawberry leaves also help sooth wounds as they have natural numbing agents in their pores.
Salty Smells: (Rosemary Sage) These plants are used to help purify your home or place of work burning sage or rosemary in a building can help drive away negative deities.
