Gardening can be a great way to help you feel grounded and connected with nature but it’s hard to know which plants or herbs are most beneficial. Especially if you’re a Green Witch that uses these herbs for things other than cooking.
We know the classics, lavender, mint, thyme, basil, but what ones often get overlooked? Check out our top three favourites that we feel are seriously underrated!
But first, what is a Green Witch?
A Green Witch is someone who embraces nature by drawing on the energies from the earth and relies on plants, flowers, herbs and nature for guidance.
So which herbs should you choose for your garden?
Besides being an excellent herb for adding flavour to your cooking, rosemary can also provide protection against bad spirits, alleviate depression and cleanse your space when used in different forms. It’s also great for stimulating memories and promotes emotional healing.
A plant that’s frequently overlooked, Lemon Balm is one of the easiest herbs you can grow and a definite must for your garden! This herb gives off a comforting and joyful energy and is great for emotional healing with its anxiety reducing and calming affects.
You’ve probably heard of White Sage but did you know it’s an at-risk plant that’s heavily over-harvested? Garden Sage is an amazing alternative that you can grow easily at home. Great for cleansing rituals and clearing out negative energy, it can also be used to conjure wisdom and luck.
No matter which plants you decide to go with, it’s important to select ones that you feel connected with and drawn to. Are you a Green Witch? What are some of your favourite herbs and plants?
