A good book to read is " The Secret Life of Plants:" by Christopher Byrd and Peter Tompkins. Keep a journal and write a list of plants you plan to use magickally and for which spells you plan to use them on. Also don't forget to write the results you achieve when you do your spells. You might want to mediate on the plants possibilities that you might achieve. The images you receive will give you insight to the spell you are wanting or trying to cast. Herbal healing has been an ancient tradition for centuries. For reference before you cast any intended spell you might want to read up on lores and legends because they contain a wealth of information that might be helpful to you. Witches utilize the spiritual connection between humans and plants to cure ailments. Witches believe that plants provide a means to appease the Gods and Goddesses they worship. Here are some examples of this: An apple - Aphrodite, Hera, Odin, Zeus. Basil - Vishnu. Bay - Apollo, Eros. Catnip - Bast. Corn - Demeter,Mithra. Daisy - Freya, Thor. Dandelion - Hecate. Fennel - Prometheus. Garlic - Hecate. Hawthorne - Flora. Heather - Isis. Iris - Isis, Hera. Lavender - Hecate.. Lily - Kwan Yin , Juno. Marjoram - Aphrodite, Venus. Mint - Pluto. You could put plants on the altar to attract the deity you want to communicate with.
