I don’t know if you know a lot about herbs, but herbs do all kinds of things. They’re food and we consume them in many different ways. We put herbs in our food when we cook. We put herbs in our beverages. We use herbs in healing. I know that when I was younger, my grandmother used to kind of chop up different little leaves if I had a bee sting or something like that.
In the metaphysical industry, we use herbs for ceremony. We use herbs in our oils. We use herbs in little bottles sometimes with a stone or a crystal or an herb that has an intention.
For example, lavender is an herb that is all about relaxation. You know, there’s lavender in bath salts. There’s lavender aromas. You know, you can diffuse lavender in your room and it makes you feel calm and peaceful.
Another herb is hops. Hops is an herb that’s all about good luck. It’s about helping you and enhancing your dreams and bringing all kinds of good things. It also helps you connect spiritually to yourself.
One of my favorite ways to use herbs is in a small cauldron. I have a small charcoal disk that you put into the cauldron and you light and wait until it’s ready for your herbs. Pick different herbs that have meanings that actually resonate with you. If you’re trying to manifest money or you want to work on finding that perfect mate for yourself, you want to set your intention. And then once your fire is ready, you take your herbs and you literally sprinkle them within your cauldron and you let them burn. They bring the smoke and that puts your intention out into the universe. Once you put that out into the universe, you let it go.
Always remember when dealing with herbs that they are good for us. But, there’s a lot of herbs that you don’t want to consume. Make sure that you’re always checking out what those herbs are, especially if you’re in a shop and you’re buying lots of different types of herbs that you want to prepare. Lastly, there are many herbs that are great for teas and that will help you in terms of healing as herbs have been used for centuries, and there’s all types of ways that you can use herbs for healing.
