Flowers of September by Rachel Patterson

The following are taken from Rachel's book A Kitchen Witch's World of Magical Herbs and Plants published by Moon Books


Aster (Callistephus chinensis)


These are perennials with beautiful flowers that come in all sorts of colours and bloom between August and October. A wash made from aster petals and leaves is excellent for cleansing and consecrating your altar and your magical tools. Hang dried aster flowers in the highest part of your house (loft / attic if possible) to keep away negative energy. The flowers carry a very definite feminine energy so are very good for working with the Goddess. Use aster in incense blends to help you locate lost items.


Aster Magical Properties:

Love, consecration, protection, Goddess, lost items.
