The Healing Properties of Baneful Herbs

The Healing Properties of Baneful Herbs October 6, 2020

Baneful herbs, herbs that are toxic or potentially deadly have been and continue to be some of mankind’s most important medicines, while their applications have evolved, drugs like atropine, scopolamine and digoxin have botanical origins.  It is because of these plant’s chemical potency that they are so important.  These herbs also have very powerful spirits and their energies are palpable.  They are powerful allies to spiritual practitioners and magicians alike.  As plant spirit medicine they have much to teach us.  The descriptions of the energetic and spiritual qualities of these herbs here barely scratch the surface.  As more an more people begin to discover the power of these herbs we will uncover more knowledge about them.

Accessing the plant’s spirit medicine can be done through the use of vibrational remedies, charms and amulets.  Through this energetic connection the herbs effect us on a mental, emotional or spiritual level.  The following is a list of well known baneful herbs and some of their vibrational qualities.  I have included some information on the herb’s homeopathic uses, and their as flower essences.  These are both safe ways of obtaining the benefits from these toxic plants as they are vibrational remedies and contain only trace amounts of plant material.

The idea that poisonous plants can heal us is a strange one.  However, it is more about the specific chemicals and their dosages.  In small dosages the effects are much different, and are medically useful.  The same is true when we are talking about homeopathic dosages and vibrational remedies.  The plants act differently in these minute dosages and their energetic effects are amplified.
