Magickal properties of Peppermint
http://paganwiccanabout.com/od/bookofshadows/ig/Magical-herbs/peppermint.htm (Source Information; not quoted word-for-word).
*Healing/ purification workings~ (it can be burned or rubbed against objects to clear them of negative energies, or consumed as an elixir or tea to bring about healing).
*Love workings~ Peppermint was noted by ancients as an herb that "excites the ability of love". Add to love workings to attract love.
Planetary Connection: Mercury
Deity Connection: Pluto
Also helpful for these conditions (Seek professional medical help first always):
Chills, colic, fevers, dysentery, cholera, heart trouble, influenza, hysteria. Also excellent as a toning astringent; when rubbed on skin (test a small area 1st, as mint oil can evoke allergic reaction in some), provides a refreshing feeling. Works wonders as a foot bath.
