Chickweed is a hardy annual with tiny white flowers shaped like stars. Its name comes from the fact that it is a favorite food for chickens. Chickweed is naturalized all over the world and is often considered a weed–but as with many weeds, just a little attention can show you how beautiful and useful this plant really is! In traditional medicine, chickweed is both nutritive and helps promote balance and flow throughout the body. Magically, its focus on balance is one of the most useful elements that chickweed can bring to your spellwork. Chickweed can be added to spells for love, health, and wealth to assure that your results will come to you in a way that is well-balanced and nurturing for your life. This hardy little plant is incredibly persistent and can help you find the strength to endure through difficult times. You can use chickweed by adding it to a tea or bath, infusing it in an oil, or adding it to a sachet.
