Uses of Couch Grass Root
Considering this herb’s reputation for wickedness, jinxes and cursing, it’s funny that it’s also known for happiness. Much in the same way that intoxicants can cause damage, they also cause euphoria. However, I would not include Couch Grass Root in workings of joy, because the happiness it causes is merely a distraction, so that its hooks sink in.
Couch Grass Root is typically used in crossing works, where you are “laying a trick” down for someone to get “goofered up”. While I don’t recommend you spend your time doing that sort of work, you should certainly use it in your magickal wards. Wards are amulets, Mojo Bags and other types of spells to provide a line of defense for you, your family and all your business. Put some Couch Grass Root in a black Mojo Bag, along with some Agrimony and Blessed Thistle. Do this on a Saturday in an hour of Saturn or whenever Saturn is overhead or on the horizon. Say the Orphic Hymn to Saturn and tie it off. Charge it in front of a black candle, and suffumigate (smoke) it some Saturn Oil. You now have a strong, magickal ward and you can hang it wherever you feel you might need a little extra protection.
Use organic ingredients in your conjure operations and your work is purer, closer to the source. The next best thing to harvesting these herbs and roots yourself, going organic puts you deeper in tune with Elemental Earth. You won’t have to deal with hazardous pesticides or toxic fertilizers.
The herbs, roots, resins and other, materia magica available here are all either organic or wild-harvested. They’re great for all your spell work needs, because they are purer, pulled straight from Mother Earth.
Many of these items are pure enough to use in homeopathic medicines and the spices are great for general cooking! Please read the descriptions carefully and do outside research.
Always consult your physician and take care, before ingesting any herbs, roots, etc.
Conjure Work herbs, oils, powders and incenses are safe and high quality. However, a small percentage of people will have allergies that even natural, 100% organic substances may aggravate. A substance that is completely harmless and even healthy for one person might cause a slightly allergic reaction in someone with a more sensitive system.
