The Burdock has seeds that have hooks that can latch on to any passing surface and is a member of the Thistle family. It is known for its protective nature and is perfect for use in spells, sachets and incense to create general protection and a ward from negativity. As a medicinal herb it is a very potent blood cleanser, helping the liver to detoxify and cleanse the blood. This translates to it being a powerful energy cleanser as well, removing negativity and promoting a healing space. It is also used magically to enhance male potency and restore hair growth. A protection charm can be made by combining burdock root with other protective herbs like Rue, Agrimony and Black Snake Root (Black Cohosh) in a white pouch to repel unwanted energy.
