Merry Meet :)))))) Many of you know I love herbs. Earl definitely knows as he watched me sneezing as I got my nose much to close to a rosemary shaped tree at Costco. I love smelling them! Over the past several years I have been becoming absolutely addicted to herbs. I had a huge garden this year and I cannot wait until I have my herb garden back in the Spring. One of the biggest things that started me into them was for home made teas and flavoring waters. Since then I've been studying how they help us physically and metaphysically and I just find it fascinating.
Today I wanted to go over a few herbs with you that are perfect for Yule.
Rosemary - Most of you are probably familiar with Rosemary for it's protective properties. Did you know that Rosemary is associates with many Goddesses, especially Goddesses of the Ocean? Rosemary is also amazing for cleansing energy and bringing you good luck. These make amazingly cute small looking trees! You have to see the picture.
That's a great way to attract some extra prosperity, luck, and keep you and your home protected this season.
Mistletoe - Of course we have to include this one. Most of you probably know it for it's reputation to bring long love and happiness to couples. This is a plant of good luck and prosperity. Not only is it great to hang as a decoration but you can add it to special yule sachets to attract good luck throughout the season. You can also make a simple mistletoe wreath.
Peppermint - This is another one of my favorites, but I use this herb all year round as I absolutely adore peppermint tea. Peppermint is also a very protective herb. It is wonderful for cleansing energy. It also attracts prosperity. Another wonderful herb to work with.
These are just a few of my favorites for the season! :))))
Have a magickal day!
Much Love and Many Blessings,
