When it comes to magic with rosemary you might be remembering the famous quote from Practical Magic about keeping rosemary by your garden gate. Rosemary is such a powerful herb and many grocery stores grow it in their parking lots. Though I don’t recommend wild harvesting from those locations since so many of their landscaper companies use pesticides on them. The best place to get rosemary is to grow it yourself, buy from an organic seller, or get a small sprig of organic rosemary at a local food market that’s known for offering safe food.
While there are numerous websites that offer their input on the magic of rosemary, I lean toward understanding its physical influence on the mind and body, then learn how that corresponds in the spirit.
Rosemary is a wonderful herb to grow in your own garden for a variety of medicinal uses. Rosemary is wonderfully supportive for lung health, improving memory, kicking the coffee habit, eliminate dandruff, and to aid in digestion.
From the head down to the mid region, rosemary has its influence over our lives. It corresponds with your third eye, throat, and heart chakras. Any magic that comes from these areas can be influenced and supported by rosemary.
Since rosemary can support memory function, it also works well to improve clear thinking and intuitive skills. Pair your rosemary with clear quartz for heightened awareness. Steep some rosemary and lemon zest in hot water to make a tea for memory and psychic improvement. This is the perfect magical tea to substitute for your morning coffee to help kick the caffeine habit. Rosemary and lemon helps to boost brain function in a more powerful way than coffee does. You can add a tumbled quartz to your cup too! If you’re not comfortable working with crystals in your drinks, plant a clear quartz in your rosemary planter.
You can also work with rosemary to alleviate struggles with your respiratory system which influences your communication. For this method of use I would work with rosemary essential oil instead of the plant. You can diffuse rosemary essential oil in a water diffuser to help improve lung function. Keep a diffuser in the bathroom and run it with rosemary essential oil while showering. The steam from the shower will help the diffuser mist to fill the room for you to breathe while getting ready for the day. For communication magic add a larimar heart to your diffuser water.
