Uses

Horehound is used magickally for its powers of exorcism, protection, healing and for its ability to increase mental focus and acuity. Carried, the herb wards off any sorcerous glamours.

According to John Michael Greer, its “temperature” is “Fiery, warm in the 2nd degree”. Horehound goes well as an ingredient in various amulets, baths, washes, oils, powders, potions and incorporates well in tinctures. This perennial grows all along the coasts of Europe and North America. It has fuzzy leaves, white flowers and square stems. The leaves of Horehound are mostly used but all of the above ground parts are useful as well.

Drunk as a potion, Horehound increases focus of the mind, giving the ability to think quickly. However, be aware that it is bitter in taste. Scattered about a place, it exorcises evil Spirits.

To keep wild animals off one’s land, sprinkle Hoarhound around the property boundaries. It is one of the important “bitter herbs” of the Jewish, Passover feast. Associated with the fixed, Behenian star, Capella, the “little she goat”, who will bestow wealth and lay honors upon you.

Not for use by women pregnant or nursing

Other Uses

Oddly enough, Horehound has a subtle, natural sweetness and is therefore used in the making of certain candies.

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.
