A Witches'
Herbal Reference

Before we begin, here's a bit of trivia some may not know. We've all seen the Hollywood rendentions of Witches stirring their bubbling cauldrons with big black pointy hats and adding eye of this or wing of that right... It was pretty spooky as a kid huh.

Actually those names didn't represent anitomical parts of animals, insects, reptiles or even people for that matter. In the old times, those interesting names were given to specific herbs, plants or flowers as a way of guarding the ingreedints of what the healers used in their remedies, kind of like keeping a trade secret in a way.

So, with that covered, another myth bites the dust... :)

Ok, on with our discussion of Magickal Herbs... Just as plants, herbs and trees have inherent magickal abilities and powers to heal. In this, they offer their powers and benefits to the knowledgeable Witch.
