    Default Tarragon as a magical herb


    Would someone please expand on the magical powers of this herb. I have some but haven't used it for this purpose yet. It is a wonderful herb to cut. I know some of it's culinary uses but want to learn more of it's additional qualities.

    I looked in Magical Herbalism by Scott Cunningham and it didn't say much other than it is used as an herb of protection useful for making sachets and protective amulets. It is also known as "little dragon" in regards to a Witch's magical garden.

    I will look around to see if I can find anything in my reference books.

    Tarragon is bound to Mars and Fire. It is best known as a protective and calming herb, being used in kitchen magic to put guests at ease and make them feel welcome. It is used in rituals of consecration, and can also be carried in charms or sachets for compassion, love, peace, nurturing, and good luck.

    Tarragon can also be used as a banishing herb in other ways. For example, you can use it as an incense as you write down the thing you want to banish on a white piece of paper, and then burn the paper in a suitable container.

    Tarragon is related to Mugwort (Discussed here). I looked up the 5000 spells encyclopedia to assertain if there was any additional information which may be of interest. Drew a blank, I'm afraid...

    Other than that which I posted in that thread...

    ... all it had to add was that in order to access that primal psychic power, some tarragon and mugwort should be made into an infusion by covering with boiling water. The infusion should then be added to your bath.

    If you find this releases your primal psychic powers, please let us know....

    I would suspect this would possibly make a most divine tea. But as a tea or in using mugwort pregnancy is one of the contraindications. I do love tea of course so when it comes to many herbs, as long as it's safe to do so depending on the herb, I enjoy a nice cup and the beneficial effects they impart.

    Thanks everyone. I think I'll bring some home this weekend and make something to hold a candle and do a little infusion in water with the flame as the heat source. Might be as much fun to make the vessel as breathing the powers.....

    You could always do a slow simmer on the stove in a pot as well if you are unable to have something to hold a candle, but yes making a vessel would surely be an enjoyable practice in artistry.

    I just noticed one of my favorite herbal blends I use for culinary purposes has tarragon in it. I use it on just about everything I cook - it goes with everything and anything.
