When worn it will help psychic powers develop, and if worn be a woman in her hair, it will make her irresistible. Thyme will increase your ability to see the Sidhe - separate from humans and who have powers to move quickly through the air and Shape-Shift at will. The Sidhe are a huge part in the lives of the Celts. Druids considered this one of their sacred herbs, used to repel negativity and depression. Thyme was among the 3 or 4 herbs upon which Mary and the Christ bedded in Bethlehem of Judea, and so it has become an herb to be in the gardens of Holy places.
Thyme is burned in incense to purify an area. A place where wild thyme grows will be a particularly powerful energy center on earth. A magical cleansing bath can be produced by pouring a tea made with thyme and marjoram into the bathwater. A pillow stuffed with thyme cures nightmares.

| Turmeric 1oz.|

In Malaysia, a paste of turmeric is spread on the mother's abdomen and on the umbilical cord after childbirth, not only to warn off evil spirits, but also for its medicinal value. Both the East and the West have held its medicinal properties in high regard.
