The Magical Uses of Flowers


Magic is an art with the ability to achieve extraordinary effects by natural means that cannot be explained. It requires the power of our concentration, effort, will and energy to achieve its purpose. Magic is an interesting art which shouldn’t be abused. We already know that Nature is very wise and will always return to us whatever we do, whether good or bad.

Candles, incenses, flowers, plants … are very useful means to practice magic. On many occasions without realizing it we all practice magic. For example; lighting a candle or a certain incense, burning essential oil, having a pot of flowers at home without knowing their influences, can lead to an involuntary magical event that we are not able to relate. That is why we are going to explain magic with flowers and the effects that we can achieve through its use.

Magical Uses of Different Flowers

Each flower has its spiritual bond with the Earth, Fire, Air and Water elements. The red flowers are related to Fire, the white to Earth, the yellow to Air and the violet to Water. The capacities they possess are released by their aroma which can affect us naturally on either a physical or spiritual level.  That’s why we should take into account the aroma of the air freshener that we use at home, the perfume or the incenses that we use.
