Yes i love peppermint however , spearmint is my "goto" ! Infact i grow both . i love chamomile herbal tea at bedtime with one tsp. Of raw unfiltered honey in it . relaxes me like a charm .Ooh I do love me some herbs! I drink a lot of herbal teas, most have chamomile in them. I use tea tree oil for a variety of things. And peppermint, can't live without it.
r.rosemary for memory , mint for digestion n relaxation , mugwort for anti-canti-cramps (pms) , pink Himalayan salt for arthritus , tea tree essential oil (bug b gone) , aloe vero for burns , cinnamon for pain relief . those are the ones i know off the top of my head . but you may want to cross-reference them . theres millionsAlthough I've been on the witch's path for many years, I just cant seem to remember what the different herbs are for! You'd think by now I'd have it! I know my crystals and how to meditate but ask me what oregano is good for and I'll tell you "my spaghetti sauce". I do enchant herbs as I'm cooking, though, so that's something. And I work w essential oils for medicinal uses...I just need help with the magickal ones LOL.
My comfort herb? As cliche as it is, chamomile. A cup of that at 10pm and I'm snoring soon most times.
It depends on your path and your specific workings - and also just a matter of preference / availability. I've heard some people completely dismiss dry herbs, they have to be 100% fresh or else it won't work --- but I, personally, don't believe that. I think they all work, no matter what - it is just ridiculous and impractical to expect everyone, in all different climates and growing zones to have access to FRESH whatever at any given time. No. That's just silly.Hi all Herb lovers! I’m super new to this (like 2 days new ) and here to learn and be inspired. This might be a silly question but is there a preference between dry or fresh herbs. And can pure essential oils be replaced for a herb ok? As a newbie I’m currently using what I have on hand, which is a mixture of what fresh herb I have grown, rosemary, dried herbs from my pantry and essential oils. I understand the craft is individual to the person but want to make sure I learn the basic understanding of the different uses for these 3 things. Also with dry herbs, are the one you get in grocery shop ok, or do they have to be specifically sourced? Hope this makes sense
