Run your fingers through the herb. Still strongly visualizing your need, send it into the herb. Feel your fingertips charging the herb with energy. If you find trouble holding the image in your mind chant simple words that match your need, such as:
“Yarrow, yarrow, make love grow.”
Chant this endlessly under your breath. As you run your fingers through the herb feel the infusing the plant with your need.
When the herb is tingling with power (or when you sense that the enchantment is complete) remove your hand. The plant has been enchanted.
If there are other plants to be used in a mixture, add them one at a time, re-enchanting the mixture with each addition.
If you wish to enchant herbs to be used separately, remove the enchanted herb from the bowl and wipe it clean with a dry towel. Replace the candles with colors appropriate to the new herb and repeat the procedure.
When making incense, infusions, sachets, poppets and the like powder or grind herbs (if needed) before enchanting.
If roots or branches are to be enchanted, simply hold in your power hand, visualizing and/or chanting, or lay it on top of the bowl between the candles.
In earlier days to “enchant” meant to sing or chant to. Once you have sung your song of need to the herbs, they are ready for use.
Of course enchantment isn’t absolutely necessary, but it is a method of obtaining better results. The wise herbalist will never omit enchantments.
