Known as the herb of grace, rue is a much underutilized herb in the magickal community and should be held in the same high regard as lavender, mugwort, rose and rosemary. This is an herb that everyone who practices magick should have in their herb collection, as there's no better herb for home blessing, purification, exorcism, protection and consecration and to call upon beneficial Spirits, bring in peace and banish negative energies. My motto is "Add a pinch of rue to everything you do." Use this herb in all sachets, baths and powders. Soak rue in water for either 7 or 12 days and nights and use this water to consecrate your ritual tools, in a spray bottle to cleanse an area or to anoint your body before conducting and magickal workings for protection and power.
