I am finishing up this weeks article for my blog, it's all about the basics of herbology (very basics, as to not overwhelm the reader). However I would like to start with individual herbs next week.

So, what are your favorite herbs to work with both medicinally and magickally? And Why?

  • One you may want to research just because it's the heart of some controversy lately - damiana. My state is trying to ban it and calling it "synthetic marijuana" (apparently not understanding what the word "synthetic" means, but they're only politicians, we can't expect too much). I have recipes for it that basically make something close to a mead or liqueur, and I know there are several ritual preparations for it. Sounds like it may be harder to buy/grow if these people get their way.

    Is this the same herb that goes by the name of K-2? Because K-2 is an herb they are trying to ban where I live. We have a police force for a small village area of just over one square mile, and the Police Chief has sent e-mails to parents waring them about this herb and he has been on television talking about k-2, I don't know the real name of the herb he is referring to. They say it's like marijuana, and some drug stores sell it under the heading of potpourri for $40 once.  Just curious.

  • Hyssop. It doesn't get much attention in the English speaking world.

    Damiana is not going to get anyone high. That is the dumbest waste of tax $ ever.

  • I make a lot of tea for remedies. One of my favorites is muellen. It is a non-narcotic pain reliever.

  • I don't know all the names they sell it under, but this is one of the stories from it hitting the news:

    (so do I have to "earn" adding links now, too or is it just impossible to find?)

  • I make a cream out of
    Arnica-anti inflamatory
    Cayenne- Pain reliever
    Willow bark- both anti inflamatory and pain reliever
    and basic no scent no thrills lotion

    It works wonders on my carpal tunnel, scoliosis, and my moms arthritis
