            Here are some general tips to aid you in herbal magick . This is by no means an exhaustive list . Good applications in herbal magick goes a long way in ensuring a successful working to bring harmony , love  , warmth & peace .
 
(1)Always ask your plants for permission when harvesting them . They are after all living beings which are to be respected in their own way . Learn to establish a good magick working relationship with them & you shall reap the benefits of herbal magick in no time !
 
(2)When you want to use a certain herb for a working , empower them by 'charging' them : i.e , close your eyes and cup the herb(s) in your palm & mentally project the need & use of the herb you are going to use . Visualize the effect . As you place the herb(s) into the chalice or cauldron or pot , again focus your intent & visualize again . This help to focus your consciousness & re-affirm your intention   . You may like to say a rhyme or chant as you do so .    
 
(3)Give your plant(s) at least some days of ' moon-bath' during the time between the waxing moon & the full moon . You may use a mirror to reflect the moonlight on them or place then outside your yard or on your windowsill overnight .
 
(4)For some of you who are into weather magick as well  , such as to bring about fine weather to ensure a good harvest , one word of advice : you may do the spell but let the Goddess to decide what is the 'best' for your plant . Mind you : a weather spell can backfire & affect some global weather pattern . ( Some of you might disagree with this . But it does happens!
 
(5)You may also wish to empower your herbs by placing a 'charged' crystal or stone near your plant . For instance , a stone or crystal programmed or 'charged' by you for protection purposes may be placed near the plant ( corresponding for protection purposes ) for at least a week . Do not remove the stone or crystal immediately . Leave it there for awhile .
