Does anyone use wattle and if so how?

Hi all, so a while back i picked some wattle (Australian native flower), and dried it out. I was wondering does anyone use this in their practice? I want to use it in a spell but not sure how…

Here are somethings i know about wattle:

Uplifting, relaxing and calming, Wattle also improves moods, aids happiness and calms noisy children.
Used as a key ingredient in perfumes all over the world, Wattle has a wonderful, rich, sweet floral, honey and woody aroma.

@TheMuslimWitch I do not use wattle, but I’ve heard of it - it is very famed for the branches in Australia — So much is done in that part of the world with it though you can find out a lot online — Wattle uses

I think it’s very prized and hearty where you are, I would definitely try it if you have access to it!! :brown_heart:

The day I learned about wattle is today! This is the first I’m hearing about it- but it sounds like it is loaded with potential uses for magick.

It sounds like others have kindly shared some great tips and suggestions for usage- I’ll be watching along and learning too! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Oh my gosh these pictures are gorgeous! :heart_eyes: Did you catch these shots? I always hear about how amazing wildlife and plantlife are in Australia, but then I see these pictures and it’s so vivid- you’re really blessed with some gorgeous nature there! :parrot: :hibiscus: :two_hearts:

No wish i had taken it it is stunning but i will as i have some wattle across the road and some Grevilleas 2 houses down. Nature here is very full on and although many people think our wildlife is dangerous (and don’t get me wrong some are), to us Aussies it just another day… You should visit here if you haven’t already i am sure you won’t be disappointed. I have little critters visiting here from snakes to lizards, to red backs and more but rule of thumb just like bees, don’t bother them and they won’t bother you… :blush: I could go without the magpies though. This year they are okay but a few years back they swooped my son and yanked some of his hair out as my mum took them a different root to school and it just happened to have a magpie nest above. They like any mother, are very protective of their babies… :blush:

I have to admit I have equal parts love and fear for Australia- you’ve got stunning scenery, fun cities, and amazing wildlife, but I am also very scared of that same wildlife :joy: Although to be honest the scariest thing of all is the cost and length of the flights haha :sweat_smile: :airplane: But maybe someday! :heart: :blush:

I hope things align and that you are able to have a wonderful travel adventure, @TheMuslimWitch! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

And hey, Disneyland/world is a popular attraction for a reason- if it’s on your to-do list, there’s nothing to be ashamed of! I hope you are able to go someday and that you have a blast :heart::blush:
