You will find Herbs used in Wicca to be quite helpful. Since long ago, Asian Doctors have accepted the fundamental connection of mind, body and spirit. They have learned to use positive energy imbalances along with Herbs to bring wellness.
In modern medicine, new uses for Herbs are being discovered every day to aid in the cure of many diseases including cancer. The most recent I've read about is Turmeric.
For much of history, Herbs have been used for spiritual growth. Among other things, healing emotional wounds, settling problems of the stomach, giving energy, providing blood-sugar balance, strengthening the heart, better concentration, as an aphrodisiac, and the list goes on ! We have all heard of the many wonders of Green Tea! So there really is nothing surprising about herbs being used in Wicca to conjure good things and create happiness and well being!
Some Herbs are used more often than others, and it would take an entire book to list them all. I will however list the ones I feel are used most often in Wicca. This is only a small selection, so please don't limit yourself on the reading selections for the use and enjoyment of herbs!
