magickal correspondences and uses:

    Incense: See incense sticks below.

    Sage incense is the magick incense certain days, based on planetary influences. You may want to burn sage incense these days. You may substitute a similar incense if you don’t have or don’t like sage. The sage incense magick days for 2009 are: January 3, February 21, May 9, June 6, July18, October 3, November 21, and December 12.

    Truly unique and unlike any incense we have ever burned! Juniper Ridge incense is made entirely from real leaves, wood, and resins which have been wildharvested from the Pacific Western mountains and deserts. Juniper Ridge brings us back to the sweet aroma of the pacific wild lands, and is the perfect choice for those who are disenchanted with the saccharine sweet, overpowering, and synthetic nature of incense today. Enjoy these 100% pure incense sticks that are powerfully reminiscent of trees, mountains, deserts, and crackling campfires. Packaged in stunning recycled content boxes which have been imprinted with hand-drawn images, and 10% of all profits are donated to groups that defend the western wilderness.
    Choose from six scents:
    Douglas Fir: A cozy wood-smoke scent, reminiscent of campfires.
    Juniper: Subtly sweet, with cinnamon-like undertones.
    Pinon: Has a wonderful smoky “Southwest” aroma.
    Cedar: Distinctively Pacific woods scent, with ginger undertones.
    Sweetgrass: A lovely sweet vanilla-like aroma, and a centering energy.
    White Sage: A rich sage scent, with all the magic of real White Sage leaves.
    Each package contains 40 sticks —.Mountain Rose Herbs

    Reversing spells: To reverse any spell (including love spells), light a dried sage leaf on fire, then blow out the flame, leaving a burning red ember. Slowly create a large circle in the air with the sage smoke, making the circle three times counter-clockwise. While making each of the three circles, chant to undo the previous spell. You may write your own chant, but it should be short and to the point. You may want to obtain ecologically-safe organic sage from Mountain Rose Herbs.
    If you have the time, you can empower the reversal of your love spell by casting a circle (in either Wiccan or ancient Egyptian style) and lighting a white candle on your altar. Concentrate on the ever changing flickering of the candle flame and let your true intentions flow into the power of the dancing flame. You may want to dress the candle as described in the article on myrhh.

    Jupiter spells: Sage (as an herb) may be used in as an ingredient or substitute for magick spells and formulas related to Jupiter matters (growth, legal matters, luck, meditation, money, prosperity, settling legal matters, and spirituality). Be careful about substitutions for preparations that will be ingested or come in contact with the skin. These substitutions do not apply to medical uses. See the article on Jupiter for a list of herbal substitutes for sage.

    Magickal substitutions: Rosemary usually may be safely substituted for any herb in magick spells and rituals. Roses may safely be substituted for any flower.

Some herbs may be poisonious under some conditions. Exercise appropriate care.

    Wild gathering: Avoid wild gathering. Some plants are endangered species. Some plants can be toxic just by touch. Even experts can make deadly misidentifications of wild plants. Please grow your own herbs in your own goddess garden (or window boxes).
