Witches Secret Garden




 
What is a Witches Garden?
A Witches Garden is an herb garden
specifically designed and used for the cultivation of cooking and magickal, and/or medicinal herbs.

Herb gardens developed from the general gardens of the ancient classical worlds, used for growing vegetables, flowers, fruits and medicines. For centuries the wise women and healers understood the magick with the herbs for healing and magickal intent. During the medieval period, monks and nuns acquired this medical knowledge and grew the necessary herbs in specialized gardens. Later, in fear of losing their power over the common people, all others; Wise Women and healers we call Witch and Evil for the same healing they had be honored for centuries before.

Thyme: Ancient Egyptians used thyme in embalming. The ancient Greeks used it in their baths and burnt it as incense in their temples, believing that thyme was a source of courage. It was thought that the spread of thyme throughout Europe was thanks to the Romans, as they used it to purify their rooms and to "give an aromatic flavour to cheese" and liqueurs". In the European Middle Ages, the herb was placed beneath pillows to aid sleep and ward off nightmares. (Huxley 1992). In this period, women would also often give knights and warriors gifts that included thyme leaves as it was believed to bring courage to the bearer. Thyme was also used as incense and placed on coffins during funerals as it was supposed to assure passage into the next life.
Uses: A tea made by infusing the herb in water can be used for cough and bronchitis. Medicinally thyme is used for respiratory infections in the form of a tincture, tisane, salve, syrup or by steam inhalation.

The fresh leaves are very mild and do not develop their full flavor until several weeks after picking and drying.
Magical attributes: Psychic visions and dreams, repels negativity and evil.

Oregano: Oregano is often used in tomato sauces, fried vegetables and grilled meat. Together with basil, it contributes much to the distinctive character of many Italian dishes.

Oregano is taken by mouth for the treatment of colds, influenza, mild fevers, indigestion, stomach upsets and painful menstruation. It is strongly sedative and should not be taken in large doses, though mild teas have a soothing effect and aid restful sleep. Used topically, oregano is one of the best herbal antiseptics because of its high thymol content

Dill
Magical attributes:Useful in love charms. May also be hung in children's rooms to protect them from evil spirits and protect against bad dreams.
Uses: A culinary herb. Fresh and dried dill leaves (sometimes called "dill weed" to distinguish it from dill seed) are used as herbs. Like caraway, its fern like leaves are aromatic, and are used to flavor many foods, such as gravlax (cured salmon), borscht and other soups, and pickles (where sometimes the dill flower is used). Dill is said to be best when used fresh, as it loses its flavor rapidly if dried; however, freeze-dried dill leaves preserve their flavor relatively well for a few months. Dill seed is used as a spice, with a flavor similar to caraway. Dill oil can be extracted from the leaves, stems and seeds of the plant.
Basil:
Magical attributes: A pot of basil herb grown in your kitchen keeps the area safe from negative spirits. Protection, love, wealth (if carried in your wallet), healing relationships, ensuring faithfulness in a mate, courage, fertility, exorcism.
