This year my theme is A Goddess' Glossary and we are looking at terms utilized by Goddesses, Priestesses, Shamans and Witches. These are terms that might occur in my new fantasy series, Paisley Cove.
H is for Herbs
In Shamanic healing and witchcraft herbs play a vital role. From cleansing a practitioners energy field, to clearing energies from a home, or ceremonial space.This practice is called smudging. Probably the most prevalent herbs are sage and frankincense. During smudging an herb is burned and the resulting smoke is pushed out to the recipient or area with a feather.
Burning herbs or incense are also common practices to bring about desired results in healing, prayer, and ceremony.
Phoebe will begin to learn about the properties and practices of herbs and which herbs bring desired results.
Loving life in Cuenca!
