Motherwort may have a bitter taste, but it’s still one of the most widely used herbs among witches. Let’s learn more about Motherwort Magical Properties!
What is Motherwort?
Motherwort originates from Asia, and it’s well known for its therapeutic properties.
The plant grows in the plains, hills and mountain areas up to an altitude of 4500 ft. (1400 m). This herb can be grown easily with seeds, both in pots and directly in the ground. It can be sown in late summer or early spring.
Flowering occurs in the middle of summer.
It doesn’t have a pleasant smell, and its taste is very bitter.
In the kitchen, both fresh and dried flowers are used to flavor legume soups, especially lentils.
In some regions, the flowers are also used in the preparation of beer and tea.
Motherwort Magickal Uses and Practices
Motherwort is a plant known throughout history for the variety of uses that can be attributed to its medicinal qualities and properties.
Like any ancestral plant, it has been recognized for its magical and esoteric qualities by many civilizations and religions, from Druids and Celts to the Santeria of Central and South America.

But, as it has clear beneficial properties for health, there is also much more that you should know.
Let’s see them.
Use Against the Dark Arts
This plant is well known as a guard against the dark spells. From spells of bad luck to its use as a repellent against evil spirits.
As an Amulet Against Bad Luck
Motherwort is used by the different ethnic groups, which use them as an amulet against bad luck, envy, and harmful influences.
They store this plant in a small red sack closed with a red thread also.
Use in Love
I also suggest this herb to people with relationship problems — especially those kinds of relationships that never arose to expectations.

It’s also very useful in cases where people want to keep other people away. I usually prepare a potion for that matter.
A Love Bond Ritual with Motherwort
Mixing motherwort with certain alcohols will create a specific perfume that attracts men through their sense of smell.
The plant should be mixed (about 20-25 g, 0.7 – 0.9 oz) with rose petals.
Put them in the alcoholic liquor (doesn’t have to be too strong) during a full moon night, and that will guarantee that you will have at your feet the man of your dreams.
The following should be said to make the mooring more effective:
“Miraculous motherwort, blessed and powerful, that by the cry of Mary Magdalene you spilled in my name, help me change my luck in love, transform the thought of (the name of my beloved) so that it remains with me for eternity, and stop suffering the fear of your heartbreak.
Offer me luck in love, give me the man (or woman) I need, for the blood of our lord spilled without remedy on Calvary, that my beloved will focus attention to me, forever.
Take away from me the fear of losing him, wrap him in my essence, in my love, my happiness, which he wishes only to be his body and soul, without fear or envy.
Tie it up next to me, let’s enjoy a full life together, and have no eyes for anyone but me, without ever leaving my side.
So be it.”
