Herbs for protection
If you’ve never used plant matter in magic before, I explain in detail in the Plants, Herbs, and Roots for Prosperity column the different ways these substances can be practically used in rituals and daily practice. In summary, the main methods of using plant material to summon protection are: carrying the substance on your person in a locket or sachet, boiling the herb and sprinkling the residual water around your residence, putting a twig under your bed or pillow. , bathe in a distillation or burn it as incense. Also, with the attraction of love, just keeping the plant alive in your home can help increase its vibrations.
