Have you ever practiced magic or witchcraft or have you had any experiences with it?
I am interested in the subject and have seen some witches online, I do not practice myself.
 
Indeed. Now, I'm not particularly experienced or well-versed, but I do have several books and perform small rituals and other magic-adjacent things from time to time. Mostly stuff with candles, incense, herbs or stones. This is partially why I collect stones/crystals - for their properties. I suppose this can be considered magical in a way?

I think that's really cool, yeah I would say this is magic. If you dont mind me asking what kind of rituals do you perform? just curious.
I have been looking into this stuff myself.
 
That depends. Usually cleansing my environment, or charging my stones with specific intentions. Otherwise it's all situational, so I suppose I'd do anything that was needed in that specific situation, if I knew how and had the resources needed. I'm sorry if it sounds too vague to be useful 🙏

...My partner probably thinks that my knowledge of herbs is magical, but to me it's just natural. I learned a lot from my grandma when I was a child, and on our walks she'd always point out the plants growing around, what they are and what they can do. 😊

This is really deep, I can relate in some ways. My family use sage to cleanse the house, and I sometimes keep Wisteria to ward off bad energy.
what other plants do you know about? If you don't mind me asking I am kind of curious.
 
Oh, plenty of them. Chamomile, althaea, field horsetail, yarrow, helichrysum, ribwort plantain, common nettle, St John's wort, elderberry and tilia, to name a few. These and many others have various healing properties and are fairly common here, so not too difficult to find if needed. Although, these days you can also just buy them. :D
 
Cool is there anything you could recommend that has worked well for you? althaea looks quite nice in my opinion,.
where I am I have ribworts and common nettles, the other ones may not be native to where I am. I go exploring nature and stuff and have a fair knowledge of plants. sounds like you know your plants that is quite cool.
 
That's the great thing - they all work. Just for different things, though there is also some overlap. I rely on plants/herbs frequently, as my health isn't the best. That being said, of course in more severe circumstances they can't replace actual medical care, but they can help at least.

Thats cool, do you use herbal medicine and stuff? im sure it would help i mean thats where medicine comes from.
 
Yup! Most herbs can be brewed like tea, though some plants can also be made into syrup/juice. The "teas" are most commonly for drinking of course, but sometimes also for rinsing, or inhaling the steam. It's really neat.

Stuff like that is common knowledge around here, or at least it used to be - I feel like it's rapidly disappearing, even among people from my generation, and younger generations probably know even less about herbs and plants, unless some people are just genuinely interested in that. I won't say I'm surprised, but it is a bit unfortunate.

Speaking of teas, I have always wanted to brew nettle tea and give it a go. I have heard it is good for joint health and other things.
I suppose there is not much need for these things in a way as there is like a pill for most stuff, or things just ready made. I do see this kind of stuff about plants and herbal remedies on TikTok, some people are still into It.

sorry for late reply
 
Nettle tea is good, mostly anti-inflammatory and high in antioxidants. Some benefits for bones and blood too. And, as a bonus, plants like to be watered with a bit of nettle tea from time to time, it's good for them. :D
Be careful if you want to pick fresh nettles though, they sting as hell. Store bought is fine too if it's good quality.
I don't know about TikTok, I avoid it like plague, but I suppose it's nice that people are spreading knowledge about herbs.
