Wild Witchcraft Plants – Re-Stock Your Witch Cabinet

Hi Everyone! I hope you have all been having a great summer so far. Just a really quick post on some wild plants that are blooming like crazy right now and that I’ve picked. There is a lot blooming now, so I will likely do a few posts. However I post regularly on twitter, so you can always check there! I love planning ahead for the colder months and using the whole summer to gather and dry my plants. Anyhow if you want to get out there and start re-stocking, or if you are a beginner……start working on building your supply slowly. Now is the time!

You don’t have to travel far, all these can be found on roadsides, local forests and trails. Once I get them home I tie them up and hang them outside. In this photo I have collected the following:

  • Birdfoot trefoil
  • St John’s WortFullSizeRender (1)
  • Buttercups
  • White Anomone
  • Cow Vetch
  • Wild Purple Geranium
  • Motherwort
  • Wild Daises
  • Forget-me-nots
  • Purple Clover
  • Burs
  • Staghorn
  • Dame’s Rocket

The photo to the right I have a few extra hanging on there which are:

  • Ivory Silk Liliacs
  • Elderberry
  • Crown Vetch
  • Salvia(meadow sage)

Once they are dried, I place it straight into a glass jar. I will only grind them up if need be. I use them for candle work, offerings, melted into talismans, use in dry sweeping and of course some friends and clients. All kinds of magical workings t be had!

Go out and explore, and if you don’t know what something is, don’t let it stop you! A simple google search of your area “weeds” and a supply of information will be available.

Happy Summer Foraging!
