Herbs for healing magic are the best help Mother Nature can give us to recover from different kinds of issues. Herbs would seem to be an exceptional thing, but in reality, they are almost the norm, since almost every herb seems to contain some virtue.
It is no coincidence that Ralph Waldo Emerson, an American philosopher, and writer, used to say: “A weed is only a plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered”.
In fact, this quote could be considered the naturalistic paradigm of those who believe that creating healing magic with herbs is possible, thanks to their infinite healing virtues. To explain the healing properties of medicinal herbs, herbal medicine is often used, which is a therapeutic method that uses the natural extracts of these herbs to fight diseases.

How do herbs for healing magic work?
To understand this, we need to fully immerse ourselves in phytotherapy. This refers to the use of medicinal herbs and their therapeutic applications. In fact, for centuries, plants have been considered the main sources of medicinal substances to support the well-being and health of humans and animals through the preparation of compresses, decoctions, ointments, and potions considered almost “magical”.
The simple popular belief has turned into scientific research with the birth of traditional Chinese medicine, the Indian Ayurvedic tradition, and that of the Western world that comes from the Greek and Roman experience.
Finally, herbal art has identified, selected, and classified the various types of plants, distinguishing simple herbs from medicinal plants, spices, and aromatic plants and guiding their cultivation and use for purely therapeutic, cosmetic, and nutritional purposes.
But is the effectiveness of herbal medicine recognized or not?
Healing with herbs means using what Nature makes available to us, a practice also recognized by the WHO, which has defined medicinal plants as “plant organisms that contain active ingredients capable of treating and soothing ailments and diseases in humans and animals”.
Each plant has a therapeutic active ingredient capable of curing a specific pathology, ailment, or malaise.
The set of all the active ingredients present in a healing herb is called a phyto-complex. For this reason, it is important to know the properties common to plants and to know how to use them if necessary.
The active ingredients of plants, moreover, can have greater effectiveness if combined in specially mixed compounds and natural preparations.
Before we continue
Practicing magic takes skill and patience and isn’t recommended to do it alone in most cases. I provide these “do it yourself” articles for educational purposes, but it is strongly recommended that you consult an experienced spell caster such as myself and allow me to do the work for you.
This way you know it’s being done by someone experienced and knowledgeable and I’m also always here to answer questions about your casting and provide follow-up at no additional charge.

My favorite herbs for healing magic
Echinacea for the immune system
With the first chills, especially during the change of season, echinacea is a valid herb help to strengthen the immune system. In particular, this plant, belonging to the Composite family, contains polysaccharides with immunostimulating action. That’s why it is used in herbal medicine to increase natural defenses and boost the immune system, thus supporting the body against viruses and bacteria.
For internal use, it is advisable to take echinacea in cycles of a maximum of 8 weeks with a one-month break between one cycle and another, during seasonal changes.
Fennel seeds against abdominal bloating
Fibers, vitamins, and essential oils: this is why fennel seeds are so important. We really should not call them that, because they are not seeds, but flowers.
The carminative action allows you to reduce pains related to abdominal swelling and counteract bloating. In herbal tea, fennel seeds stimulate digestive activity and promote intestinal motility.
Hawthorn, plant of the heart
Hawthorn grows spontaneously in our regions and from its leaves and flowers we can draw the properties that make this fragrant shrub an effective anxiolytic and natural calming agent. Flavonoids, antioxidants present in good quantities, protect the heart by inducing the dilation of the arteries that lead to the heart and thus lowering blood pressure.
Taken in herbal tea, it can contribute to the proper functioning of the cardiovascular system in case of tachycardia and arrhythmias.
Hypericum against sunburn
Hypericum is used for its flowering tops that can improve mood, as a natural sedative, and as a natural antidepressant. This remedy is suitable for both internal and topical use, for different purposes.
Oils, lotions, and creams are mainly used as anti-inflammatories and to treat small wounds on the skin, as well as sunburn. As for the intake for internal use, it is better to consult your doctor, pharmacist, or herbalist since hypericum can establish numerous interactions with drugs and other supplements.
External use is not recommended before sun exposure due to the presence of photosensitizing compounds.
Chamomile for calming effects
Queen of the good night herbal teas, chamomile has different methods of use. It acts as a natural muscle relaxant, thus acting to reduce pain from abdominal cramps, dysmenorrhea, and muscle spasms. Its anti-inflammatory action also works for inflammation of the skin and mucous membranes, bacterial infections, and respiratory tract irritation.
Chamomile, in this regard, is used for natural respiratory tracts. Chamomile wraps are the best home remedy for eczema and conjunctivitis.
Sage for menstrual pain
We owe a lot to Salvia Officinalis: this extremely fragrant evergreen is rich in essential oil and magical properties. In the herbal field, it is the woman’s true ally: in case of dysmenorrhea and amenorrhea, it helps regulate the menstrual cycle and intervenes to calm pains when taken as a tincture.
Even during the delayed phase of the arrival of menopause, this medical plant, thanks to estrogenic action, reduces the manifestation of excessive sweating and flushing of heat thanks to its hormonal rebalancing intervention.
A List of Many Sage Magical Properties
Licorice for the stomach
Licorice is a perennial plant that arrived in Europe only after the fifteenth century: this root is attributed to digestive, diuretic, anti-inflammatory, expectorant, and protective action of the gastric mucosa. It acts on the respiratory tract to inflame the throat in case of cough and when there is the presence of phlegm.
It is a natural inflammatory agent and its expectorant power allows the increase of prostaglandin production with a protective effect on the stomach. Unlike hawthorn, however, it can increase blood pressure.
Ginkgo biloba for concentration
Ginkgo biloba is a plant that counteracts the formation of free radicals, precursors of cellular aging. This plant’s ability to promote the correct distribution of oxygen and glucose to the brain improves mental activity by promoting concentration and short-term memory: for this reason, ginkgo biloba is suitable for study and intellectual work.
Not only that, but the active ingredients have also been documented to be effective in counteracting the onset and advancement of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
Ginseng, against stress
When stress and physical and mental fatigue arise, ginseng is the solution you need. It is a natural anti-stress medicine thanks to its properties that strengthen the immune, endocrine, and nervous systems.
The sportsman will appreciate its stimulating properties with consequent improvement of reflexes and physical endurance made possible by nutrients extracted from the roots by the stimulating action.
Devil’s claw against muscle and joint pain
The analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects of the nutrients contained in the devil’s claw root are believed to be responsible for the analgesic and antipyretic effects of the plant.
Common pains such as back pain, headache from cervical osteoarthritis, and muscle and joint pain of an inflammatory nature, such as arthritis or tendonitis, can find relief with the external application of a devil’s claw ointment.
How to use herbs for healing magic?
As you might have noticed, each herb has its own goals and properties. Some herbs are more for internal use, some for special teas and some are more suitable for lotions.
Always respect and follow the instructions, especially when using processed herbs! Try to be very mindful when using an herb for healing magic.
For example, when I have to apply lotion to a painful area of my body, I create a small ritual to let the natural nutrients of the herb I decided to use to help my body recover with the help of magic.
You can do this even when drinking a special infusion or taking pills.
Feel-good ritual with herbs for healing magic
- Herbs for the healing of your choice (according to what you need to heal)
- A yellow candle (the perfect color to boost your health and send positive vital energy your way)
When: This ritual should be performed at night, right before heading to bed.
How to perform the ritual:
The ritual is very simple. Light the candle, use the herbs as needed, and say these words while visualizing yourself perfectly recovered from what you are going through. If you take sips of an infusion, a pill, or something like that, be very present in the moment and consider each sip as a rejuvenating experience.
If you are massaging a body part with a lotion be very gentle and caring, show yourself a bit of self-love! Add a little prayer like this one:
“Let my body heal,
Let my health fight any disease,
I feel stronger, I feel better
I am healthy”
You can let the candle burn itself out or you can blow it out and save it for another time. This could be the perfect choice if you are on treatment and you need to repeat this over and over again!
A few additional tips
- Try to rely on raw ingredients to boost your health even more thanks to the help of nature.
- Be very careful to use the herbs for healing in the right way.
- Before using a body lotion, apply it to a small portion of your body to see if there is any kind of allergic reaction to it!
