Rosemary is one of the most important magickal herbs. It is commonly used for cleansing and purifying. Rosemary is widely thought to be a powerful guardian and to give power to women. Therefore it is used by many people to ward off evil in the home and bring good luck in family matters. For this purpose, plant rosemary by your front door or tie a conjure bag filled with dried rosemary leaves over a door so that all must pass under it when enteriing. If a married woman carries rosemary in a blue flannel bag with a whole angelica root it is said that she will be the dominant partner and that there will be peace in the home and faithfulness in the marriage. To keep happiness, joy, and peace in the home, burn rosemary and basil mixed with sandalwood.
To bring good dreams, soak half a handful of rosemary in a mixture of vinegar, red wine, and honey. When going to sleep anoint your forehead with the mixture. It can also be sewn into your pillow to ward off nightmares. Burn rosemary and juniper together to drive the staleness from a home after a long and lingering illness. Adding it to a spiritual bathe is said to remove worries and invigorate the spirit.
Rosemary is sold as a curio.
