Organic Chamomile Flowers
This magick herb is an old favorite for divination and dreamwork. It makes a nice addition to a dreampillow (together with other dream herbs like passionflower, bay leaves, cinquefoil, yarrow, pot marigold, andmugwort), or try combining it with other herbs for a dream tea. It's good for anointing scrying mirrors, and you can also add it to a bath before bed to promote dreamwork and to help prevent nightmares - or to attract love (it was a component in medieval love potions). Culpeper believed that the ancient Egyptians deemed this a Sun herb, and like a Sun herb, it does encourage a general feeling of well being, but others consider this a Moon herb because of its aid in dreamwork and sedating effects. One can nevertheless see some Venus in its uses as a money attractant (some put a few flowers in your wallet) or to bring money luck (washing one's hands in chamomile water before gambling). It is one of the nine sacred Anglo-Saxon herbs. In the Middle Ages it was a strewing herb, and some nowadays still sprinkle it around the house to keep out negative magic. Its scent is said to help bring understanding in confusion, especially spiritually. Chamomile is also an ingredient in one of Bardon's Fluid Condensers.
