Herbal Things/Smoking etc
Post # 1
While the title says Natural Things/Herbal Remedies etc, ill be going over a wide range of Herbs and they're uses as well as plants/flowers, edible things and much much much more. I do have quite an interest in herbs and natural remedies etc but I often dont have a chance to make/use any as its VERY hard to get herbs and stuff here if you do not grow them yourself, which I am planning to do, but when I have a chance I try to make lots of stuff, with stuff I have around my home, and that's easy to get!

1( Things To Smoke.
While lots of people have anxiety/depression etc and many other medical problems, many of them go to marijuana/tobacco and other "drugs". While I have nothing against marijuana (as I only thing of it as a plant not a drug in my opinion) it is often illegal in many countries, as well as being hard to get, expensive and has side effects. Or even if you simply just do not want to smoke, that is perfectly fine. There is a wide range of things to smoke that are illegal and usually harmless.

A( Herbal Teas.
Yes!!! You can smoke herbal teas! Ones like berries, chamomile, green tea etc etc can be smoked and really do help. I find they are especially good for relaxing, winding down and anxiety. Just make them like a normal roll up cigarette, except with the tea instead of tobacco. They are safe, taste nice and help as well as being legal!

B( Peanut Shells.
I haven't tried myself but heard that if you crush fresh peanut shells and use just as you would with tobacco, it can getuou slightly high and relaxed. I dont know if this works but its always worth a try.

C( Yarrow.
I have also never tried but it seems that Yarrow gets you high and that its legal and safe also, there is many great alternatives to Marijuana.

D( Banana Peels.
You think its crazy right? Well, I have also never tried but I do believe that this might work alot! Its supposed to get you high and relaxed, it releases endorphins in your brain (as well as peanut shells) which relax you and make you happy.

2( Herbal Remedies.
Lavender - Great for sleep problems, anxiety, stress, nightmares, depression etc. Can blend/crush into oil and rub on temples, or sniff the oil/flower to relieve.

Paprika/Chilli - Great for warmth, as it gets the blood flowing and I also very good for your blood.

Cinnamon/Nutmeg - While you can take Nutmeg to get high, I highly recommend not to as it gives you a "bad high" and leaves you with horrible side effects and you can even overdose. But a little bit in cooking (cakes, buns etc) is good for the blood and warmth, if you like you can sniff it, it may make you a bit dizzy and happy, and get you a little high, it is also good for depression and anxiety as the smell is relaxing and makes you happy.

Garlic - Garlic is so amazing for your blood. Eat as much as possible! While it doesn't have much uses its healthy and yummy and goes great with most things.

C( Herbal Remedies.
Hair Mask (Shiny, Healthy Hair). Mix 1 - 2 eggs (depending on hair length) with olive oil/veg oil/coconut oil and honey. Spread all over hair and leave in for 30 mins - 1 day. Shower cap can be worn going to sleep then washed out in morning.

Lip Scrub (dry, cracked sore lips). Mix coconut or olive oil with sugar, add oil/juice etc. You can squeeze juice from berries or fruits into it, food coloring is optional. Rub on lips gently, leave on for 5 - 10 mins, you can lick it off if all natural things are in it.

Body scrub (dry skin, exfoliation). Mix salt, essential oils/juice from fruit/flowers with sea salt. Make sure its not too fine, it needs to be big sort of grains. Rub it on area gently in circular motions. (sugar can also be used but is quite sticky). Finally, wash off and moisturize.

This is just a bit of herbal remedies/ and natural things. I will post more. In the mean time if you have absolutely any requests or questions for herbal remedies etc just comment below and ill get back as soon as possible with some recipes and answers! Remember ~ Take care of your body and raise your vibrations! Peace Out ~

One also needs to take into account the spirits of the plants, as it is a blending of spiritual energies and active consciousnesses within the herbs that enables them to have any kind of magical effect.

If a working calls for mugwort, you can't replace it with ordinary grass, simply because there is indeed a spirit to every piece of mugwort(and of course an oversoul of mugwort) that is engaged within the workings.

At the very least, elemental and plantery correspondences. Why do I, for example, imbue my holy water with powdered paprika, even though I hate that vegetable more than anything else in the world?

Because red pepper, is shockingly, red and hot. Elementally, it corresponds to fire, planetarily it correspondences with Mars. As such, it is a living magical weapon, and if you are seeking to not merely banish, but completely kill negative spirits and purge negative energy then it is a good choice.

Since this topic is about smoking, something I am very much against, unless for shamanic purposes, I do not have much to point out. Except that the author Carlos Castaneda has written much on the use of drugs in magic, especially in his first book,the Teachings of Don Juan, and points to this spirit within the plant.

Especially the plants he interacts with, Jimson Weed(Datura) and Peyote(Mescalito), and the spirits to them.

Zelotar, that is a matter of belief and not fact.

There is certainly nothing wrong with believing that everything has a spirit. But there is no way to prove or disprove it, so passing it off as absolute fact is misleading.

I identify as a follower of the Left Hand Path, which means that I place all importance of my operations on the result. As such, I do encourage skepticism.

I also encourage, however, a suspension of disbelief, as magic does not work if one has doubts, within themselves or the process as a whole. Enter the ritual to prove magic wrong, and you will succeed in just that.

With that in mind, almost every word I say is going to be UPG. Everything I say, take it with a grain of salt. If it contradicts your experiences, it's absolutely no problem, as my focus is on what works.

Communicating with the plant's spirits, is what leads me to make the above claims. I would advise you not trust me on my word alone, but suspend disbelief and talk to the little plants yourself.

Listen for replies, thoughts that definitely feel foreign. Hell, even do a Q&A with a plant, writing down every thought that comes to mind. Read back, and you will see it isn't your own thoughts. Even try asking it about something in the past or the future that you don't know about, attempting plant-based divination.

Magic is empirical before it is rational. Trying to cram the esoteric into rationalism is an easy way to attempt to whitewash and humanize something that is more than simple and human. One of the reasons I am against the Psychology Paradigm in general. Simply because I've seen it work. Objectively, on others, for others, with visible, measurable effects, often circumstantial, but I have seen spells come into fruition.

Still, on your profile you state you practice magic atheistically, so I'd be interested in hearing about that.

Then again, like I said at the beginning of this post, whatever works, right?

Take whatever I say with a grain of salt, test it out with an open mind, see what you get, and even if it doesn't fit what I said, that's OK, because now you have your own experiences, more valid than mine.

I respect your opinion and I respect the plants and nature. But this was not all about smoking. If somebody merely does not want to smoke marijuana because of the so called effects then there are other alternatives that may be of a healthier choice. I am not saying that Tea is the same as Marijuana, I am saying Tea can substitute for Marijuana. If you need something for a spell, lets say Sage, I do not go and use Parsley, but I can substitute the Sage with dried Sage or Mixed Herbs and I find it woks quite well. You do have a good opinion, but this was just merely to help people

And I agree. Personally, I would never smoke anything, so I can understand that. I was simply pointing to some things I've learned as well as a source on the use of drugs in shamanism.

Bless you!
