Herbal Magick is one of the most interesting studies I have ever done . The gifts & wisdom Of MotherNature are the most precious gifts one can ever have . I am grateful to be able to explore this wonderful realm of study. A working knowlegde of both medicinal & magickal usage of herbs can benefit oneself & the family . For instance , an oinment made from rosemary can lessen sores and insect bites .
