Short answer is that nobody was participating. But I am thinking it was mostly because of the holidays. It does get discouraging for me when I try and no one responds. Plus the other teams leaders got busy in their lives and had to stop being leaders. I am hoping someone will come and help me. LOL

Any way I'll restart the herb of the week on Friday, and see how it goes.

Hello All, I was reading about the various herbs of the week and saw Sagebrush as one. I lived in Central Oregon for 13 years where this grows everywhere. I thought I should warn allergy prone people that many people have hay fever type allergies to Sage Brush. If you are using it to smudge, it can especially cause reactions.

Today I am healthier than yesterday and tomorrow I will be healthier than today.
I WILL DO THIS!

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

The herb this week is marjoram.

Arlene, thanks for the links for Costmary. I've been wanting to get some for my books, as it's a deterrent for insects.

We were camping near Taos .The fields at the base of the mountains were filled with sage bush's they place smelled wonderful. I collected a bunch of it and wrapped it into smudge wands. It still smells wonderful and this was years ago.

I love rosemary as well; it probably grows really well in your neck of the woods right Silverwitch? It'll grow here on the East Coast but it doesn't flourish like it does in the warmer, desert climes. I'll use stems for shrimp skewers, I love it with pork and/or roasted potatoes; sometimes I'll just clip branches of it and throw it onto the coals of the grill so the smoke can penetrate whatever I'm grilling.

We'll do rosemary this week for CEB2007.

I love the scent of rosemary also. I use it when I am making pork roast.

Some of it's uses in magical works are protection and purification.If you place it under your pillow it ensures a good nights sleep, and drives away nightmares.

The chocolate spell I did last week, what I did was carve symbols on one square of Lindt 60%, using a toothpick. Then put the chocolate in a baggie and empowered it. Then ate it. I'm not sure whether it worked or not. I think I might have scattered the energies by focusing on more than one thing. I'm going to try it again.

Daisy brings love--good to know. One more year of focusing on me (cause this is the year I'm going to lose weight), then I'm going to focus on finding love. I'll be looking back at all these posts cause a lot of them were about love.

I love mint! I had put a drop of peppermint essential oil in my water this morning-very refreshing; guess great minds think alike! LOL My kids grew up on peppermint tea--tummy aches, headaches, just for comforting! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm going to have to look up that first one for sure Reina!

I do well with plants for sun, but didn't have a good handle on what would thrive in shade, so I picked up Southern Living's shade perennials a few years ago. It's come in handy while daydreaming how I want the backyard to eventually look like.

My favorite gardening book is Bud, Blossom, & Leaf by Dorothy Morrison (pagan gardening book with cool spells for pest control etc)

My favorite herbal books lately are The Wicca Herbal by Jamie Wood and The Master Book of Herbalism by Paul Beyerl.

They sure are yummy on potatoes, and I love their purple flowers in a salad!

The herb this week is Chives.

I don't know if they have any magical properties but for some reason they popped into my mind when I was thinking of what herb of the week to put. Must be a reason for it.

The herb this week is garlic.

Carrying garlic is suppose to help avoid accidents, and keep you out of harms way. Can be used in spells to bless a new home, and is an herb of Hecate.

It's usually used in Italian sausage which gives it a distinctive taste. Used in protection spells and grown around the house helps protect it.

While it's not really an herb, I think Pumpkin would be an appropriate honorary herb this week.

The herb this week is Dandelion!

I used to do this when the flowers set their seed. I would pick it, make a wish and blow the seeds sending my wish far and wide.

Some of my resources list properties of thyme including: purification, healing, strength, psychic powers, courage, and love. It is said to attract loyalty, affection, and the good opinion of others. emoticon
