As a witch I love to work with herbs. I use them as tea, in fact 99% of the time I only drink herbal tea. I also use them as handmade incense, pouches, herbal sprays and potions; as well as cooking.

Here is an article of some of the ways you can use home grown herbs!

The garden is so abundant right now and the fall equinox has passed which means it’s time to bring in the last of the garden herbs and put them to good use. I’m always one for drying herbs for cooking, to add to soups and stews when the weather gets cold, but sometimes I feel like something’s missing – like there is more to garden herbs than just their culinary uses.

Also, All Hallow’s Eve is right around the corner which has me feeling a little extra witchy these days. So to celebrate the turning of the seasons, I’ve compiled my list of 7 Witchy Ways to Use Your Garden Herbs, where I’ll be discussing other uses for your witchy herbs, uses that lie beyond the kitchen.

Witchy tip #1:
 Drink Mint & Lemon Balm for Health

Mint and Lemon Balm are abundant in my garden and so easy to grow. Mint is known to soothe the digestive system and lemon balm is said to calm the nerves and restore youth. These herbs can be either steeped together in hot water for a light herbal tea or pop a few leaves in your daily water bottle to add a refreshing cool flavour to your daily 8 glasses. Either way, drink these witchy herbs daily to restore your health and vitality.

You Can Heal Yourself Using The Chi Energy of Trees According to Taoist Masters…

For me this makes complete sense. Even before reading this small article I knew this.  Think about it; you can have the darkest of moods, but when you step into a woodland or forest, within a short time your mood will lighten.

There is something that is unmistakably magical about woodlands. The energy they are filled with is pure positivity. I will always feel emotionally and spiritually lighter once I have visited our local woodland.

I also feel that any mental and emotional fog is lifted. I can think much more clearly and I feel more spiritually alive. And there is no mistaking the energy you feel when you hug a tree (yes that’s a thing I do. I am a tree hugger and proud of it).

Hope you enjoy the article and do share your own tree healing experiences.

Trees are very powerful according to Taoist masters. Aside from absorbing carbon dioxide and turning it into oxygen, trees also have the ability to absorb negative energy and transform it into positive.

The roots of trees dig deep into Earth, the deeper their roots, the higher they rise to the skies. They absorb the energy of the Earth as well as the universal force of the sky.

Trees are considered the most spiritually advanced plant on Earth because of their constant meditation with subtle energy.

You can establish a relationship with trees so long as you understand their language. And they can help you open up your energy channels to cultivate calm, presence and vitality.

They also can benefit from you when you help them eliminate their blocks and devitalized parts. Like any other relationships, you benefit from each other by the constant cultivation of your connection….
