Calamus Root, often known as German Ginger in Europe, has long been used to flavor wines and herbal bitters. It was once employed as a strewing herb to conceal filthy orders caused by poor hygiene in the Middle Ages. Native Americans chewed the root as a stimulant, similar to coffee or chocolate. Because the root contains a group of compounds called asarones, which provide a slight narcotic effect, it was later adopted in the usage of ‘flying ointments,’ which amplified and promoted hallucinogenic alterations in consciousness, earning it the moniker of ‘Witch’s Herb’ and linkages to ‘Black Magic.’ Since 1968, the use of the root or essential oil as a flavoring or food has been prohibited in the United States. So, how should you apply this knowledge? By incorporating it into magickal mojo bags, Witch Balls, Potpurri Blends, Witch Bottles, and other herbal concoctions (not for eating) that aid in spell casting. Because it is a root, it has strong linkages to the element of Earth, providing excellent grounding for clear thinking and reconnection. This energetic stability allows one to gain power in their own life, taking control of situations that previously seemed out of reach. It enhances persuasions, healing, strength, and balance by igniting the energy between the root and solar plexus chakras; it fosters an energy that doubles manifestation power and prosperity by igniting the energy between the root and solar plexus chakras. Because magic is neither black nor white, it is up to the user to decide how they will utilize and share their newly acquired power. Do not ingest.
