Happy Friday everyone!!
Scilla siberica – Siberian Squill
Sanguinaria canadensis – bloodroot
Bloodroot is used in the Pagan world as a proponent of marriages.
- Place a bloodroot over your front door to encourage anyone who enters to respect your marriage.
- To inspire a happy marriage, mix a combination of the two colored roots (darker red to brownish roots are King roots and the lighter orange to pinkish roots are Queen roots), wrap in a red flannel fabric and place under the marital bed.
- If you fear someone is trying to break up your marriage, sew some dried bloodroot into yours and your spouse’s pillows.
