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.

Black Salt and Sealing & Protecting Your Home

images

I have made black salt myself. I used the charcoal method as it’s easier than gathering scrapings from a cast iron pot. I don’t have a cast iron pot or an open fire, so pretty difficult.  I’ve also added the ashes left from protective incense.

Rice is a first for me. I’ve not seen that used, as it’s used the the article below. May have to try that one next time.

So take a look, as it also gives you guidance on how to seal and protect your home from unwanted spirits, which involves using black salt.

Namaste and blessings
