As I continue to learn about the significance of the more commonly used herbs, flowers, fruits (and their skins) etc, I noticed that the list is limited. In fact it's dwarfed by the extensive plant life that exists. This is an observation made at a cursory glance at what witches use regularly and the plants that I see on a regular basis on a casual walk through the forest.
The discussion is mainly this: can any plant be used? (Other than closed practice components ie: white sage) And if so, would anyone like to join me in the research and understanding of not-so-popular plants?
This isn't to say I don't plan to use the plants we know are tried and true; this is an attempt to use plants that aren't well known, easier to acquire, and may be just as potent as their counterpart.
