1. Roasting poppy seeds and putting them under your pillow helps sleep
2. Mixing Eucalyptus oil with lavender bath salts for a pre-bed bath helps sleep.
3. Mix the herb, valerian, with honey, and hot milk, also helps sleep.
4. For protection, mix an equal amount of base of almond, olive oil, cedar, sage, and sandalwood.

I've used #2 and #1 and they have worked wonderfully, and have heard the rest from friends. Please tell me how these worked for you.

Probably the simplest potion of ancient witchcraft is the use of willow bark, and the herb meadowsweet. When made into a potion it is Aspirin.

ok so I guess the protection will substitute healing but what do you guys think about the "base" potion

also thank you Caitlin (sorry if I spelled it wrong) for the sleep potions as my melatonin was not working! so thank you for that

anyway tell me about this "base" potion and my question will be done! thanks to all right now and all in advance for your comments!

I have never heard of a "base" potion but I know that many potions have common herbs like lilac and rosemarie.
But I could be wrong, as I have only been practicing for about a year.

I use chamomile as a base when making a lot of my teas. Its a calming tea, and can improve the taste of the nasty ones. lol Add mint, more calming. Add nutmeg to help put you to sleep. Add willow bark for pain/inflamation. You get it.

It depends on what you want to do with it. I have a base of herbs that I use for teas for illness and add to that depending on what the individual needs. All herbs have more than one use, so one herb can be used for a variety of ailments. Parsley (Petroselinum crispum) is a general female tonic, but it is also a natural antihistamine and mild diuretic among other things. It is also full of vitamins and minerals. You also want to make sure that you are getting the right herb so you need to know it's official name (Latin binomial). There are some herbs that have the same common name (and are even in the same family) but have completely different properties. Lavender is a good example. The official lavender (Lavendula) has relaxant properties, but the Lavender (Lavendin) has a high quantity of camphor which makes it more stimulating. Lavendin lavender also has a higher essential oil content so the "lavender" that is used in many fragrances is actually Lavendin not true lavender. I highly recommend cross-referencing with a couple different herbals to find out what all the properties of a herb you are considering using are before you use it. Also look at what it is used for to know when it should not be used.
