As far as using these, please do not ingest any, unless you KNOW you are not allergic, or if you do not know if it is poison or not. I haven’t the space to include a complete Herbal, so do what I do, and just make Poppets, “Witches’ Bottles”, Dream Pillows, sachets and other things instead of eating something you don’t know if it will hurt you or not! I won’t be held responsible for misuse of the above herbs.
