The simplest Earth, Water,
Air, Fire Ritual is to boil the herb for a while in the
The Herbs are the earth, the
water is in the pot, the air is the steam and the fire element
is the stove. Occasionally stir the herb in the water while thinking
of your magical intention. Strain the plant material from the
liquid and sprinkle it around or outside the home.
Use them as Incense.
Some plants are hypnotics so
I dont really recommend this unless you are certain that
the herb is not toxic once set alight. Traditionally though,
herbs are set alight on charcoal burners and the smoke allowed
to waft through the house.
Here are some of the more popular
herbs used to draw prosperity and money. Most are available in
your garden or from stores, but there are occult shops and apothecaries
that carry herbs in jars:
Alfalfa Known traditionally
as the good luck herb I recommend tucking a sprig
of this in your purse or in a locket. When combined with other
money drawing herbs in a sachet it is thought to reinforce the
other substances powers.
Allspice Can be carried
on the person or burned as incense or sprinkled in the four corners
of the house. It is thought to attract business luck or success.
Bayberry Bayberry can
be bought commercially as a candle A bayberry candle
burned to the socket brings luck to the home and puts
money in the pocket. It can also be bought as incense.
Basil Soaking basil leaves
in water for three days and then sprinkling the water at your
business premises is thought to attract financial success. The
leaves can also be carried with you.
Bay Leaves Bay leaves
increase intuition and are good if you are looking for a promotion
or a job. Tuck some under your mattress or boil them and sprinkle
the water around your home. Hallucinogenic so I do not recommend
you burn these.
Chamomile Washing your
hands in chamomile tea is thought to bring gamblers luck. Drinking
the tea is thought to bring luck and prosperity.
Cloves Cloves can be
burned on charcoal, tucked in a sachet or put in your purse to
draw money. An ancient money and protection ritual is to stick
an orange with the heads of cloves stuck on pins and hang it
on a ribbon in the kitchen so your cupboards are never bare.

spice that can be used in a pinch to bring quick
money, it can be bought as incense or burned on charcoal or sprinkled
in a cash register or wallet to bring business.
Citronella: The leaves are thought
to be good for attracting business and also smell lovely in a
potpourri. Citronella is, however, toxic to birds so avoid
burning it in the house if you have feathered friends in your
Five-Finger Grass (also known
as Cinquefoil): This lemony grass can be burned, hid in a potpourri
or carried on your person. It is the standard ingredient in most
money drawing incenses.

round seeds are carried in the purse or wallet or tucked in a
sachet under the pillow to bring luck and guidance in career
or money matters.

flowers are used to attract luck business and prosperity.

luck, good fortune and business success.
