The cultivation of herbs for medicinal use is something humanity has been doing long before recorded history. Most of us understand that many plants and herbs have inherent qualities that can alleviate various ailments but not as many of us understand, or are aware of, the use of herbs in magic. The Magical Herbalism Diploma Course reveals all – sharing knowledge, techniques and methods to cast potent spells to heal, protect, gain wisdom, attract good fortune, and more.
To give you a strong foundational knowledge before you delve into practising magical herbalism, you will first explore important figures and events in its history and the theories behind the practice, which includes the doctrine of signatures.
To ensure the spells you cast have the desired effect, it’s important to choose the right herbs.
