Bay is used in clairvoyanceand wisdom brews, although its taste is strong. Bay leaves are placed beneath the pillow to induce prophetic dreams, and are
also burned to cause visions. It is a protection and purification herb and is worn as an amulet to ward off negativity and evil, burned or scattered during exorcism rituals, placed in the windows to protect against lightning, and hung up to prevent poltergeists from working any mischief in the house. A sprig of bay is used to sprinkle water during purification ceremonies, and the tree planted near the home protects against sickness. Bay leaves mixed with sandalwood can be burned to remove curses. They are also a popular method of manifestation. Write your desire on a bay leaf and then burn it. Scatter the ashes outside to return to the earth and give thanks.
Bay Leaves are sold as a curio.
