Enchanted Gardens

of Ambrosia



Welcome to Ambrosia's Enchanted Gardens where many wonderful things grow to share their beauty and energy in our magick. They are welcome companions. Below you will find lots of information on the history and uses of these wonderful beings. We must be ever thankful of the gifts they give us.

The following is a list of herbs and their magickal attributes. I have geared this toward incense, but this information can be used for any magickal purpose.

I have listed the common name followed by the Latin genus and species name/s. Next line is the gender, planet/s and element/s. As my sources often disagree, I listed all. You will have to use your intuition to decide which is which.

Next are the origins. If you decide you would like to make an ethnic magickal brew, you will probably like to know what herbs were native to a particular area and the time frame. But, there's a glitch. Many of the ancient cultures travelled great distances and traded goods. So an herb indigenous to one area could have been available in another part of the world from very early times. I recently saw on tv where they found traces of tobacco, a Native American herb, in the tombs of ancient Egyptian mummies. This suggests there may have been unknown trade routes between the two hemispheres from very early times. Or, perhaps, tobacco was grown in Atlantis. We don't know. Again, use your intuition.

Next is Parts Used....pretty self-explanatory. Quite often one plant part or the oil is interchangeable with another plant part.

For the uses of the herbs; I have gleaned information from various sources *see Sources* and, of course, the internet. Here's that phrase again - use your intuition.

This information is for magickal use only. Please don't use any of these herbs internally without checking a good medicinal herbal first. I've pointed out which herbs are obviously toxic, but any herb has the potential to be toxic to someone sometime. Use reasonable caution when using any herb for any purpose.
