Also Water Hemlock:

The Water Hemlock, aka Cicuta douglasii, has been deemed by the USDA as “the most violently toxic plant that grows in North America”. The water hemlock contains the toxin cicutoxin, which if ingested, wreaks havoc on the central nervous system, causing grand mal seizures – which include loss of consciousness and violent muscle contractions – and eventual death. Water hemlock is different from poison hemlock, Socrates’ notorious killer, in that it contains coniine alkaloids that kill by paralyzing a victim’s respiratory system. Both are members of the carrot family and are common throughout the Northern hemisphere. (1)

Hemp : Healing, Love, Vision, Meditation

Henbane : Love Attraction ***TOXIC***

This poisonous herb was used in magical concoctions, along with other poisonous herbs to induce visions. This type of “potion” or concoction has also been called “flying” ointment or flying potions, as it was believed to have been used by witches in order to give them hallucinations of flying. It was also said to have been used by the priestesses in Athens to contact oracles.

While the herb in large doses can be deadly, the poison of the henbane plant really refers to its hallucinogenic effects. Though you should never consume henbane for the sake of getting “high”. (3)

In magickal practice, mugwort is believed to protect the bearer from all sorts of spiritual and bodily harm, and was employed since ancient times as a counter-hex. A mixture of the leaves and root of mugwort was often sewn into a pouch and placed under a pillow to encourage restful sleep, while strong tisanes made from mugwort leaves and roots were imbibed as a hallucinogen to encourage lucid dreaming.

When smoked, it was supposed to increase one’s psychic abilities, while burnt as an incense or used as a smudge stick, it was essential for warding spells and for protection spells, especially when conducting summoning spells. When smoked, the ensuing vapours were said to grant a shaman the ability to commune with spirits or to divine the future.

Mugwort was a sacred herb to the goddesses Diana and Hekate, and subsequently, to both herbalists and midwives who followed in the footsteps of those goddesses.

Planting mugwort over the entrance to any homestead was said to protect that place from any malignant energies or evil that may be directed at the inhabitants within. A wreath or crown of fresh mugwort leaves gathered on St John’s Eve was said to protect its wearer from possession, hexing, diseases, and all forms of misfortune.

This practice was adopted into voodoo and hoodoo tradition, where the plant is a general protective and cleansing herb featuring highly in many medicine pouches or fetishes. Pouches containing the leaves, roots, or flowers of mugwort (if not all of the abovementioned plant parts) were said to aid travelers and provide them protection along their journey, as it not only protected them from evils that may beset them on the road, but it also helped to alleviate, if not altogether rid them of fatigue.
