Herbalism workshop- love potions and peace spells

Join The Wild Love for part 2 of a series of workshops where we will be exploring the uses of six plants in peace and love spells.

EXCHANGE: R500

On this workshop you will discover how to gather, prepare and store the plants correctly. You’ll learn about the importance of the lunar cycle in gathering your herbs and practising herbal magic and how it can empower your intention when using the plants for medicine or casting charms and spells.

This workshop will guide you on how to grow and harvest the herbs as well as how to make an altar, creating a sacred space in which to practice. You’ll also learn many methods of using your herbs in herbal magic, which can either be used in conjunction with a spell or simply to access the magical power of the herb. These methods include incense, potions, poppets, poultices and smudging.
