Witchy Wednesday - Agrimony
Witchy Wednesday - Agrimony Agrimony is a perennial flower native to Europe and America. It has a long green stem with spikes of yellow flowers protruding from it and grows to around 20 inches long. The leaves are spiky and furry and it has a very sweet smell. The Anglo-Saxons called it Garclive and used it to treat wounds, skin blemishes, warts, and snakebite. An early herbal remedy used a mix of agrimony, human blood, and pounded frogs to treat internal bleeding. It is also associated with very powerful magick, its other name being Fairies wand. In an 18th-century Scottish witch trial, agrimony was mentioned as a witch's cure for people who were Elf Shot or suffering unexplained illness. It is especially useful in healing magic as it enhances the strength of all healing spells, especially from a good distance. Agrimony can be added to pillows, or placed under the pillow to ensure a deep, dreamless sleep. Agrimony is one of the traditional Bach Flower Remedies, used to bring emotional balance to those who hide their feelings behind humour and put on a brave face, and to promote self-acceptance.
