Herbs have long been held in high esteem for their holistic properties and healing benefits. They’ve also enhanced our meals with their rich and savory flavors. But, they can also be used for esoteric means like rituals in herbal magic as explained in The Magical and Ritual Use of Herbs.
The Magical and Ritual Use of Herbs was written by a scientist who is deemed an expert in the multidimensional. The book is broken down into four categories, Stimulants, Depressants, Narcotics, and Hallucinogens. Each area highlights a few of the nineteen herbs mentioned.
The author has thoroughly researched the historical use, chemical structure, preparation for consumption, and magical rituals related to each of the four categories. He explains how these natural substances can be used for the enhancement of sexuality, muscle relaxation and massage, initiation, spiritual growth, and astral projection. These nineteen herbs not only stimulate our energies, but also combat fatigue, assist healing, and relieve tension.
As you read through the book, you’ll see the detailed information on the benefit of each herb, how to prepare it, and how to use it. There are also notes of caution that need to be read before you proceed.
I thought The Magical and Ritual Use of Herbs was an interesting read. Although I’d never personally use these herbs, it goes without saying that knowledge is power. If you are going to use these herbs, then it’s best to adhere to the guidelines, be aware of the necessary precautions, and always follow the instructions.
