preperation of herbs spells and ritualsHerbs and Their Uses
I would like to take a moment to share a bit of my own philosophy about herbs and their medicinal and Ancient Ritual uses. 
From the time that man began using herbs to cure diseases, ease pain and enhance his surroundings with sweet smelling herbs, they have a mystical and Ancient property to them.  As man's intellect began expanding taking in the more scientific aspects of the herbal uses and remedies, the Ancient Ways/magic became medicine and still today, there is still magic in the medicine. 
We have all experienced some aspect of the miraculous recovery from some sort of illness or spiritual imbalance or disease of the body and call it medicine.  I would like to give both properties of the herbs from a medicinal and spiritual healing perspective.
With that being said, please feel free to read, explore, learn from the following list of herbal properties and uses, both medicinal and Ancient Ways.  Respecting both sides of the coin, for there are still today, many who benefit from  the old ways and are very successful in the healing arts.
This is by no means a complete listing of all the herbs and their properties.   There will always be updates to this page, as I continue researching and finding more properties to list with these herbs.  Please remember in your uses. The True oath..."do as you will, tho it harm none."
