Peppermint can be both soothing and stimulating at the same time. The soothing aspect empowers the heart and soul, while the stimulating aspect awakens the mind and body. This makes it the perfect herb for welcoming transitions and changes. It has been widely used throughout history in purification spells and for welcome good spirits by placing it at the altar. For those who feel sensitive to surrounding energies, it is a great herb for relief and to reduce sensitivity. Simply rub on an area of discomfort to bring healing and purification. It has a tendency to raise vibrations, either of its user or of the area its being used in, when used as a smudge. Bring with you in a medicine pouch for safe travels, or place in your wallet to bring prosperity. Whether it's to rid of negativity, uplift spirits, or promote change, peppermint is a wonderful herb to work with.
