So in a lot of my reading of spells and things I’ve noticed some spells require herbs. I haven’t noticed any (yet) that give amounts that should be used in spell/ritual work. I’ve tried searching on here and haven’t found anything yet that answers how much of stuff do you use in your working if an amount isn’t given. Like is it a pinch, a smidge, a heavy pinch, handful, dollop?
Any advice is greatly appreciated
Yep its a pinch, a dash, a smidge, a handful. It is what ever feels right to you. And whatever will fit in the bottle, pouch, etc, that you are using It’s about intuition. Have fun with it.
@Mia.1 hey hon. There’s really no exact unit of measure in my experience with herbs. Its kinda like when u ask grandma for a recipe, and u are told they dont have one.
Just like @Sarall said its all in what u decide. Just like any workings u have in the craft its all up to u.
As for me, depending on what im doing, i call upon my guides, ancestors, and deities for aid. And its like a voice in my head or even a feeling comes over me as to which herbs to use and how much.
But like with my teas if i havent asked for aid, i go by symptoms. As for my pay the piper spell i go to my banefuls and work from there.
Its all in your preference. Just find what works best for u. U will always be tweaking it as u learn and grow. And we never stop learning and growing.
