Indoor Herbs

Indoor Herbs

Indoor plants need a lot of light; most of them will prefer a good 6-8 hours of
natural sunlight per day, so try to position them near windows or under skylights. If you can’t get enough natural light for them, consider installing a
grow-light. Most herbs prefer humid surroundings, so if the air in your house is
dry, keep a little mister nearby and use it regularly. They like it warm, but
keeping them right near a heater, stove or heating duct will be far too dry for
them. One of the best places for culinary herbs is your kitchen windowsill,
where they’ll get some sunlight and will be near the tap to be watered
regularly.

Herbs which can be grown indoors include mint, basil, lavender, scented
geranium, sage, rosemary, chives, sage, lemon verbena, thyme, parsley, marjoram.

The Wicca Book of Days for March 8th – Planting Advice

The Wicca Book of Days for March 8th

Planting Advice

English writer Gervase Markham’s seventeenth-century almanac, entitled “The English Hus-wife,” advised the sowing of seeds in March that would provide the household’s supply of herbs, scented flowers, and vegetables later in the year. It was important to match certain seeds to specific lunar phases, he noted, as follows: “In March, the Moon being new, sow Garlic, Chevil, Marjoram, white Poppy double Marigolds, thyme and Violets. At the Full Moon, the wane, Artichokes, Basil, Cucumbers, Spinach, Gillyflowers, Cabbage, Lettuce, Burnets, Leeks and Savory.”

Mother Earth Day

Either follow Markham’s advice today or celebrate Mother Earth Day, as is done in China. “Plant” congratulatory gifts of flowers, coins and other objects symbolizing fertility and prosperity in soil, in the hope that the coming agricultural year will be a fruitful and rich one.

WISH RITUAL

WISH RITUAL


A large bowl A wooden spoon A sifter or colander
As many of the following herbs as you can find: Cinnamon, basil, clover, ginger, marjoram,
tea, catnip, jasmine, ginseng, lavender, pine, sage, cloves.
This is inherently a simple spell but you can make it into an all-out ritual.
Best if done when the moon is waxing, unless you are wishing to get rid of a problem.
Place all the ingredients into the bowl. Stir and grind them with the spoon.
Continue to grind and blend until everything is mixed into a coarse substance –
there should be no large pieces. It should be grainy and almost powder-like.
Dump the substance into the colander or sifter and gently shake it back and forth over another bowl.
The finest powder will get through the sifter but the large pieces will not.
What you should have when you are finished is at least a handful of herbal wish powder.
Make sure you go out on a nice day to perform the spell.
Find a nice clearing and take your wish powder with you in a pouch.
Take a handful and say a chant – it’s best that you write your own so you can state the specific
need of the wish. Make sure you are very clear about what you wish for and how you want to get it.
Throw your powder to the wind and let it carry your wish away to come true!

Herb of the Day for August 11th is Coriander

Folk Names: Chinese Parsley, Cilantro, Cilentro, Culantro, Uan-Suy, Stinkdillsamen, Hu-Sui

Gender:  Masculine

Planet:  Mars

Powers:  Love, Health, Healing

Magickal Uses:  Coriander has long been used in love sachets and spells. Add the powdered seeds to warm wine to make an effective lust potion.

Herbal Bouquets for Cooking and Magick

Fresh or dried, herbal bouquets are great for both magick and cooking! In magick, hang the bouquets over the altar or place in a conjuring bag, or dip in spring water to asperge an area, candle or other item. For cooking, just drop in the boiling water or frying pan for a great taste and easy cleanup!

To make the bouquet, simply gather the herbs together and tie with clean string, leaving a long tail (so you can easily pull the bouquet out of the cooking pot and toss away).

Happy Home:  basil, marjoram, and chives (for red meat or chicken)

Harmony:  parsley, rosemary, thyme, and savory (for red meat or flavoring for beans)

Uncrossing:  marjoram, thyme, sage, parsley, and bay (for red meat, pork, or chicken)

Love:  dill, tarragon, parsley, basil and lovage (flavoring for beans or fish)

Good fortune:  savory, sage, celery tops, and chives (Flavoring for beans, chicken, or red meat)

Growth and success:  tarragon, chives, oregano, and parsley (for eggs and sauces)

Healing:  sage, basil, onion tops and bay (for red meat)

Banishing and cleansing:  parsley, lemon verbena, rosemary, and red pepper (for fish)
