2 Special Blends: herbal mixtures

S B Herb.01

About eighteen years ago I was asked to create a series of special, magickal blends of herbes for a charming little store in Renton, Washington where I taught weekly courses for a year or two. With decades of study, research and experience in the magickal properties of herbes, I crafted formulas.

After the store closed a year or two later, the special blends were added to our print catalog where they have brought Magick and delight, spiritual wellness and joy to many over the years.

S B Herb.02I mix the blends only at certain times. I was fortunate in beginning the study of astrology shortly after my herbal career began and have nearly 40 years’ professional experience in each. Organically-grown herbes are used, blended by hand. You’ll even find my fingerprints here and there, caught when I adhere the tape over the label.

These blends are clearly hand-made, ritually, with beautiful songs and sonnets which I create for the herbal magick.

When I wrote The Master Book of Herbalism, way back in the dark ages of the early 1980s, I compiled a fun section referencing the magickal properties of herbs. Fourteen years after the publication of The Master Book in 1984, A Compendium of Herbal Magick came into print.

By this time I had shifted my work so that everything had historical accuracy and academic documentation, or was in Mrs.Grieve or earlier. I’ve had the fortune of locating numerous hard-to-find and rare books, many sent from Africa, India, and other parts of the world. When the Compendium was published I had detail on 330 herbs but today, I have information on the ritual and magickal uses of 1600 species and this work will be continued long after I am compost.
