Licorice is an exceptional herb for giving control over people and situations. It can be used in spells for control over others as well as spells of self-empowerment and will.
Suggested magical uses for Whole Licorice Root:
Brew licorice into a “tea” and sprinkle or spray the infusion around the home or workplace as a smokeless incense to give you empowerment and control over people or situations.
Make a Licorice tea blessed with your intention for your empowerment and drink it to give yourself self-control or control over others.
Burn Licorice with Myrrh and Master of the Woods on a charcoal when doing domination spells.
Dress a purple candle in Power oil and sprinkle Licorice in a circle around the candle to give extra strength to your empowerment spells.
Put Licorice, Quassia and Rosemary in a red flannel mojo bag along with a petition paper for more control or domination in a love relationship.
(Licorice is considered safe to ingest in small amounts – it is common sense to research any herb before ingesting.)
For in-depth information on how to use this and other herbs and roots magically, I recommend Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic and Cunningham’s Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs, both of which can be found in our Books section.
