Magickal Properties of Aconite


The magickal properties of Aconite are usually accomplished these days by envisioning the herb rather than using the actual herb. Never touch this herb without gloves, and never ingest it for any reason. Aconite is highly toxic, even to the touch. It can kill you. Keep it away from pets and children.

If you'd like to use this herb in your magick, it's best to either envision it in your mind's eye during ritual, or have a printed picture of it on your altar.
