It’s official: spring has sprung! In this flowery season marked by Aries and the Spring Equinox, we shed our winter blues and embrace all the wonders that spring has to offer us. That means it’s time for new beginnings, prosperity, and growth. And what better way to get into the feeling of regrowth than by having it all over your Instagram feed? Instagram offers a wonderful community of witches, plant parents, and herbalists (a person who studies the medicinal and magical properties of herbs) that help us learn about the magic of the plants around us. Here are some magical herbalists that you should be following.

Two questions for you: ? 1 – Have you ever grown passionflower successfully indoors? I've only ever grown it outdoors, but I've recently seen a couple people mention that they wanted to grow it indoors and it made me wonder how it performs as a houseplant. Have you ever tried it? If so, have you ever gotten it to bloom indoors? South facing window? ? 2 – Has anyone else been having issues with IG not telling you when you have new comments on your posts? ? Pictured: dried passionflowers from my 2018 garden ? Happy Saturday! ?

I would like to shed some light on something that I noticed many of you seem to be concerned with – is it good to have plants in your bedroom? I remember when I was a child, I was told that sleeping in the same room with plants can be dangerous due to carbon dioxide emissions. But they actually absorb the CO2 emissions during the day and release the very oxygen needed by us all. The truth is that plants, just as humans and animals, do produce carbon dioxide at night time as a result of their process of photosynthesis. However, we along with our furry friends, emit way much more CO2 than plants do… and even then, the amount of plants emissions is so small that it is practically considered harmless. But let me tell you what plants bring to your home in exchange that tiny amount of CO2: 1. Plants improve the air quality. They help to maintain healthy humidity levels by releasing water vapor during transpiration. 2. Plants produce negative ions in the air that help to reduce dust, mold spores, alergies and bacteria. 3. Plants improve our productivity, mental state and just make us overall happy people ? 4. Some plants can even filtered the air from pollution like benzene, formaldehyde and a number of others. . . . #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantmom #urbanjungle #urbanjungleblogger #crazyplantlady #jungalow #girlswithplants #plantsofinsta #plantsarefriends #houseplantlove #letsjungelize

Portland was amazing ? ✨can’t wait to press the leaves I found there for my journal. How is everyone celebrating Mabon? As soon as I unpack, I’m going to make butternut squash ravioli, pumpkin chocolate chip bread, apple butter, and chai tea mixes. While I was in Oregon I left the city and wandered a forest for a bit, and meditated under a huge tree. I get asked a lot about how to celebrate the different sabbats, but you celebrate it the way you want to! You don’t have to have a super fancy ritual or a million herbs and spices. Carve your craft the way you want it to be. That’s the beauty of it. ☺️?

?нєявѕ σƒ уυℓє? M I S T L E T O E » frigga’s tears . In Norse mythology there is a story with Loki and the ever popular mistletoe. Frigga, goddess of love and beauty wanted to make sure no harm would come to her son Balder who was most loved of all the gods. She secured the promise of all elements to make sure nothing would ever hurt him. . Loki, however, found a way; & that was mistletoe. He fashioned one arrow from its branch and gave it to Hoder, Balder’s blind brother. Loki killed Balder through the hands of Hoder. . Because of this Frigga cries immense tears, which some say display the mistletoe berries. In one version, Balder comes back to life from Frigga’s remorse & is so thankful that she reversed the ill reputation of mistletoe into a symbol of love. . source: thewhitegoddess.co.uk . . #yuletide #yuletideseason #yule #december #herbalife #herbalism #christmastime #christmas #sabbat #wheeloftheyear #12daysofchristmas #apothecary #gowildlyandslow #theslowlife #thebotanicalseries #underthefloralspell #cabinetofcuriosities #darkmood #pagansofinstagram #witchessociety #witchessocietyguest #witchesofinstagram #greenwitch #hedgewitchcraft #druidry #pagan #paganism #witchythings #paganlife #mistletoe

A post shared by Genǝvieve Clarisse (@gatherthyme) on

Featuring crystals, tarot, and a whole lot of plants, this moody account has created the ultimate chill, green witch vibe. Before starting the account in June 2018 after a two-year-trip abroad, pagan herbalist Genevieve Clarisse (Gen for short), learned the magic of plants growing up on an herb and flower farm with her mother and grandmother. With such a dense background in herbalism, Genevieve says her goal for the account is to “create a supportive environment on social media that [is] open to any and all individuals that either loved or worshipped nature.” On her YouTube page, you’ll find instructional videos on how to incorporate herbalism into pagan practice. Or, you could check out her Etsy shop, where she sells herbaceous items and hand-knitted scarves.

What does being a witch look like for you? Do you identify as a particular type? Are you eclectic? Not a fan of the labels? Do you belong to a coven or are you a solitary practitioner? Are you Pagan? Wiccan? Neither? Do you celebrate sabbats? I could continue with more questions, but I’m using them to make a point… It’s SO exciting that there are a variety of ways to live the path of a witch. YOU get to choose what that looks like for you and how to best live your own unique truth. No two witches will be exactly like, even if they choose similar paths. . . . I identify as green witch and a hedge witch. I am a solitary practitioner. I’m not Wiccan. Not pagan. I do celebrate sabbats. What does my individual path look like? The paths of the green witch and hedge witch are actually quite similar, and the two are often confused. As a green witch you’ll find me in the woods, foraging, mushroom hunting, gardening, practicing herbalism and the wise woman healing way, and aligning myself with the cycles of nature and the moon. I’m attracted to things like rocks and crystals, animal bones, feathers, moss — natural finds. Whereas the green witch focuses on the natural, earthly world of the elements (earth, air, fire, water), the hedge witch has one foot in the green earthly world (that’s how the paths are similar) and the other foot in the spirit realm. Hedge witches traditionally lived on the outskirts of their village, in the hedge. Beyond the hedge was deep forest. As a hedge witch, I practice divination; connecting and communicating with the spirit world to receive guidance and wisdom. . . . Both of these paths are likely to be solitary and without fancy tools or elaborate rituals. I seem to be a pretty balanced mix of green and hedge, and for me, I can’t imagine being one without the other. I’m so curious —Tell me, what does being a witch look like for you? ?xx
