Uncover Hidden Herbs meanings

For many people, on hearing of the magick and the Solomon seal, all that they imagine or think of are the miraculous pentacles of King Solomon or the wonderful seal that king Solomon used when capturing the evil spirits, storing them in a jar and keeping control over them.

However, this is a quite different case and this will be confirmed by all with adequate experience when in herbal roots.

This is a flowering plant that falls within the Rosaceae family, formerly known as Liliaceae before scientific nomenclature was revised. It has a slim, arching stem that has alternate green or green and white top leaves that look like lance.

The Solomon plants grow well in places that have shades and most of the time they grow in shady places of the gardens as weeds. In the woodlands, they grow best, looking much bigger and greener that the garden ones.

The flowers are quite unique and tubular, white in color and symmetrical in all aspects. A good number except Polygonatum biflorum which bears flower in two rows, this is the True Solomon Seal. The Solomon seal has similar functions as those of Polygonatum odoratum and a good number of the species that fall under it including P. odoratum var, commutatum as well as the Large Solomon seal or Polygonatum officinale in the field of magick. The essential part in magick is root, which is used to make infusions, oils and incenses.
