A majority of the Witchlist's Garden include naturalized species that now live across the globe, for history's sake and to ensure we recognize any appropriation that we may make in our use of a plant, we include it's nativity.

Plant Energies

Over the course of millenia, various religions, physical sciences, diviners and star gazers, etc. have come to assign energies. This is perfectly synopsized by JD Walker in A Witch's Guide to Wildcraft:

Plants can be hot, cold, wet, or dry. They are assigned to or governed by one of seven (or nine [by including the Moon and Sun], depending on your outlook) heavenly bodies. People assigned these characteristics based on where a plant grew, what it looked like, and what effect it had on the humans and animals that came in contact with the plant.

  • Planet(s): Neptune, Moon

  • Element(s): Water

  • Gender: Feminine

  • Sign(s): Pisces, Cancer

  • Chakra(s): Crown, Heart, Sarcral

Warning: Synthetics

The primary acting ingredient can be manufactured in a synthetic form. It takes hundred of tiny flower heads to create an essential oil of jasmine, as such the less expensive avenue is synthetic. That said, this can change how one reacts to the essence or even your magic depending on how you utelize them.

Talk to your Doctor/Medical Professional before adding any regular supplements, herbal teas, infusions, dedoctions, etc.

Part of the reason that we list medical jargin is because many plants can interfere with or even counteract medications we already take or it can exacerbate ailments we already have. 

When talking to your Medical Professional, we suggest asking what "actions" an herb might do to interfere with your health, either positive of negative. For example, if you suffer from heartburn, a Cholagogue which creates more bile may not be advantagous. Too much of a good thing, eh?
