Basil is used to calm arguments and create peace, protect, and invite in a smooth and harmonious love.
Some ideas for magical uses Organic Basil Leaf:
Carry a pinch of Basil, Marjoram and Red Rose Petals in a red flannel bag to invite in a sweet, harmonious and peaceful love or hang the bag in the home to create a peaceful and loving environment.
Burn Basil with some Dragon’s Blood and Myrrh on a charcoal for a powerful protection incense.
Add basil and marjoram to food, pray over it and feed it to your family to calm tensions.
Brew dried basil , marjoram and lemon grass into a “tea” and sprinkle in and outside of the home to create a protected and calm environment.
Dress a blue beeswax candle in Peace and Tranquility oil and roll in Basil for extra power.
(Basil is generally safe to ingest but should be avoided in quantities above average food quantities by pregnant and nursing women, infants and toddlers – it is common sense to research any herb before ingesting.)
