Incorporating Flowers, Herbs, Resins, Roots & Barks into My Witchcraft Thanks to The Lancashire Witch

By Paganism, ThinkingNo Comments

I’ve been a Witch for a long time. I’ve even co-authored a book on magic called SpellCast – Folk Magic for the 21st Century. But those of you who know my Witchy side well, know I’m great with candles, crystals and essential oils. But not so great with flowers, plants and trees.

It isn’t that I don’t like flowers, plants and trees, I do, I just didn’t know much about the magical uses of them in spell work. That was until I started having some good conversations with the Witch herself: The Lancashire Witch.

Yarrow, Star Anise & Oak.

Sally the owner of The Lancashire Witch is a good friend of mine. The Lancashire Witch is a traditional witchcraft shop, both in bricks and mortar in Leyland, Lancashire and online.

The Lancashire Witch sells a wide selection of Herbs, Resins, Roots, Bones, Flowers & Barks. So I’ve started my own collection bought from The Lancashire Witch. Here is my current list of flowers, plants and trees I have in stock at home and their associated magical properties:

  • Aniseed – Protection, Astral Travel, Psychic Abilities, Road Opener.
  • Bay Leaves – Money, Abundance, Success, Love & Healing. Wish Magic & Money.
  • Burdock Root – Strength, Cleansing & Protection.
  • Calendula – Happiness & Joy, Healing, Divination.
  • Carnation Flowers – Healing, Courage & Bravery. Love.
  • Chamomile – Road Opener, Promotes Good Sleep & Reduces Anxiety.
  • Chili – Magical Booster, Passion & Lust.
  • Coconut – Healing, Protection & Fertility.
  • Eucalyptus – Clarity, Healing & Cleansing.
  • Fennel Seeds – Fertility, Healing & Love.
  • Ginger – Magical Boost, Passion & Protection. Speeds Up Magic.
  • Jasmine – Reduces Anxiety, Aids Relaxation & Money Magic.
  • Mistletoe – Good Luck, Wealth & Fertility.
  • Oak Bark – Success, Stability & Strength.
  • Orange Slices (Dried) – Happiness, Friendship & Prosperity. Clarity & Focus.
  • Rose – Love (Romantic or Self-Love), Healing & Beauty.
  • Rosemary – Wisdom, Love & Aids Sleep.
  • Sage – Home Blessing, Longevity & Wisdom.
  • Sandalwood -Dispels Negative Energy, Wishes & Peace.
  • Star Anise – Protection, Good Luck & Psychic Abilities.
  • Thyme – Healing, Good Sleep & Bravery.

Horned God Statues

By Paganism, Shopping, The Web2 Comments

For me paganism is about balance: light and dark, night and day, summer and winter, masculine and feminine and the Goddess and the God. Paganism is neither matriarchal or patriarchal, but both at the same time.

When it comes to statues of the Goddess and God, it seems that most pagan creators view paganism as matriarchal. You can find many statues of the Goddess in all of her forms (maiden, mother and crone). But finding statues of the God in any of his forms (youth, father and sage) is all but impossible.

Earlier in the year, I managed to buy these two horned God statues from The Goddess & The Green Man:

Here are two Horned God Statues that I bought from The Goddess & The Green Man.

Then about a month ago, I stumbled on a listing of lunamoodchild’s on ebay. I instantly fell in love with the statues she creates. Here’s a photo of the gorgeous, stunning and handmade God statues:

Gorgeous Horned God Statues by lunamoodchild on Ebay.

Lunamoodchild also creates beautiful, exquisite, and handmade Goddess statues and sets containing one statue of each or two of the same.

I’ve already bought several, which have filled up my altar. I will be buying more for presents for pagan people.
