Herb of the Week: Spanish Moss
Spanish Moss is a magickal, powerful, and protective plant that is used for dolls, poppets, and protective sachets / talismans. It grows in the South, which is a humid, warm, and tropical origin. It's commonly seen in states such as Louisiana and Florida. It has more than just protective uses though. In Rootwork, it is known for its uses in evil magick and is known for its use as a key ingredient in "War Water". It's especially known for being used in doll magick for love or destruction. Take a poppet, stuff it with Spanish Moss, the hair of the victim, and a mixture of either love or destruction herbs. Sew the doll up with a coordinating colored thread (red for love, or black for control / destruction), and place doll in a box. Put the box in a place where it will not be touched or messed with until you are ready to release this person of your magick. If you are using this doll for destruction, it is necessary to use pins in the mind (for confusion, headaches, disorientation, bad thoughts), in the body (body aches, tiring them out, heart pain, arm pain, stomach pains, heart ache, erectile disfunction / failure to orgasm, make them sterile, back pain, foot pain, etc.) or wrap their entire body with black ribbon where you want them to hurt / "be destroyed". If you want them to stop talking, wrap / sew their mouth shut. If you want a love affect though, sew their eyes shut so they only have eyes for you. Then wrap the doll in a red flannel cloth and place in the box. There are many ways to do Doll Magick, but the best way is to make the doll yourself from scratch. And Spanish Moss is a popular ingredient in these specific workings.
** WARNING: PLEASE DO NOT DO EVIL OR DARK MAGICK WITHOUT A REALLY, REALLY GOOD REASON. WHATS A REALLY, REALLY GOOD REASON YOU ASK? WELL, DID THIS PERSON RAPE YOU OR SOMEONE YOU LOVE? DID THIS PERSON KILL AN INNOCENT BYSTANDER OR ANIMAL FOR NO REASON OR FOR PLEASURE? HAS THIS PERSON STOLEN IRREPLACEABLE ITEMS OR FUNDS WITH EVIL INTENT OR WITH INTENT TO HURT YOU? HAS THIS PERSON SLANDERED YOUR NAME IN SUCH A WAY WHERE IT HAS AFFECTED YOUR LIFE / RELATIONSHIP / WORK TO A FAULT? THESE, ARE GOOD REASONS TO CONTROL A SITUATION AND USE A DARKER FORM OF MAGICK TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT AND GIVE A MOTHER FUCKER A TASTE OF THEIR OWN MEDICINE. BECAUSE THEY DESERVE IT. BUT IF YOU'RE MAD AT YOUR BOYFRIEND BECAUSE HE DIDN'T ANSWER YOUR TEXT, OR BECAUSE SOMEONE DOESN'T WANT TO BE WITH YOU (THATS THEIR FREE WILL. SORRY.), THESE ARE VERY BAD REASONS. THESE ARE THINGS THAT CAN BE REVERSED IN TIME, CHANGED AT SOME POINT, OR IF DARK MAGICK HAS BEEN DONE, YOU CAN FEEL GUILT AND HAVE THE LAW OF 3 ACTUALLY TAKE AFFECT ON YOU BEFORE YOU REVERSE THE ENERGY. AND EVEN THEN, THAT WONT STOP THE LAW FROM SHOWING UP ON YOUR DOORSTEP EVENTUALLY. THE LAW OF 3 CAN ONLY WORK IF YOU FEEL GUILT FOR WHAT YOU ARE DOING. IT'S CALLED "JUSTICE" WHEN YOU ARE DOING IT WITH THE INTENT OF GOOD AND TO A PERSON WHO HAS CAUSED IRREVERSIBLE DAMAGE TO YOU AND OTHER PEOPLE LIVES. SO BE RESPONSIBLE, SMART, AND MAKE SURE YOU ARE MAKING A DECISION OUT OF LOGIC RATHER THAN EMOTION WHEN SETTLING ON DARK MAGICK AS AN ANSWER. **
Anywho- Spanish Moss is a MUST have in your in home magickal apothecary, and if you don't have it, get it. Add it to spiritual baths, candle magick, as well as physical uses for the herb- oral extracts of Spanish Moss (Tillandsia usneoides), a non-parasitic epiphyte in the pineapple family, have been found in a few studies to reduce blood glucose in laboratory animals. The compound primarily responsible is called HMG, short for 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaric acid. Spanish moss has figured largely for generations in North and South American folk medicine traditions as a treatment for a wide variety of medical problems; several of these problems - particularly diabetes and skin conditions - are believed by many alternative medicine practitioners to be effectively treated by Spanish moss. However, these claims have not been backed by scientific evidence, and Spanish moss use is not advocated by the Food and Drug Administration (boooo...). Spanish Moss Tinctures however contains several compounds that prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter in the brain and one that is needed for memory and healthy brain function.
