You can use your herbs to make a wreath for any season. They’re traditionally used around the holidays and winter, but you can make a wreath have a summertime or spring vibe by adding some dried orange slices to your herbs.
If you know your herbs are going to go bad, you can pour olive oil into an ice cube tray and lay in your herbs. When you’re ready to cook, pop out a cube and defrost your oil in the pan.
These beautiful cubes are simple to make and a great way to use up your extra herbs and flowers. For something more spiced, use herbs. To add a beautiful look to a sparkling beverage, use colorful flowers.
To make a herb mobile, attach twigs to make a circle (or buy a metal circle base). Then, attach your upside-down herb sprigs using twine. Attach twine to the four corners of circular mobile and hang it from the ceiling. Not only does this provide some witchy décor, but it also dries your herbs. Here’s a full tutorial on making a Herb Mobile Drying Rack.
If you love a witchy aesthetic that revolves around everything natural, try using your dried herbs as a centerpiece. Simply place the sprigs in a mason jar. If you’re feeling creative, tie a bow around for a pop.
Herb satchels can be used and carried around for their magical healing powers. Or they can be placed around the home because of their beautiful scents. They can also be placed in altars. To make your own, think about your intention for the satchel. That way, you can choose herbs, scents and crystals that correspond to that topic or purpose. Combine your dried herbs, small crystal(s), flower petals and other nature findings, then pour into your satchel.
There’s nothing like a homemade herb salt or rub. It makes cooking just that much more special and the kitchen all that more creative. You can Google recipes for the herbs you have leftover to see recommendations for additional flavors. However, in many cases, you can simply dry your herbs, chop them up, and combine with coarse salt.
Smudge sticks are traditionally made with sprigs of sage that have been tied together and dried. However, you can also use other herbs, such as rosemary and lemongrass. To learn how to make you own smudge stick, read this. To learn how to smudge, read How To Smudge With Sage To Cleanse Energies.
The photo above shares a basic recipe, but you can change it as you’d like. For example, you may use rosemary herbs instead of rose petals. If you don’t have many ingredients but still want to enjoy a herb bath, simply mix your plant material with Epsom salts and a few drops of an essential oil.
If you make candles, you can use your herbs to make a new age craft. Simply make your candle as you normally do and place a few herbs at the top. Other people like carefully laying a sprig in the side of the jars. You can learn about using plants in candles here.
You can also experiment by combining herbs and making your own blends. If you’re into witchcraft medicine, you can also research which herbs impart which benefits and make your DIY tea according to that.
You can also play around with your herbs and plant material to make a hanging wall piece. In the example above, leaves and beads hang on a simple string art piece. You can create something similar using your herbs or plants in your home.
As we mentioned above, you can make a smudge stick from dried herb sprigs. However, if you don’t have a bundle to use but still want the energy clearing benefits, you can make a sage spray instead. To do this you’ll need:
Mix the ingredients and place into a spray bottle. You can use this as a room spray to clear the energy, or as a spray to clear your aura. If you want, you can also add a crystal to the bottom of the bottle to help purify the energy.
