Blackberry Leaves

Uncover Hidden Herbs meanings

Blackberry Leaves and berries are sacred to the goddess Brigit, the goddess of healing, poetry, sacred wells and witchcraft, and are typically used in invocations to the said goddess. 

Blackberry Leaves are typically used in magic to remove evil spirits from a home and to return evil to enemies and to protect against those doing you harm. Blackberries are also used in worship.

Certain conjures and root doctors who are well-versed in such matters have said that in order to send evil back to the sender, they would usually use a black figure made of porcelain. Alternatively, a black figure candle to resemble the enemy. This is laid on a red cloth covered in Blackberry Leaves and sprinkled with black salt.  A black ribbon is then used to tie this all together. A hammer is then used to hit the package three times.

While this is happening the magic worker calls out what they would like to send back to the sender. When they are done, they would throw the packet into a deep hole.
