An herb that's "Good for the Head." Wood Betony is long associated with casting out evil & darkness, it is said to be the cure-all for almost every disease, problem or curse. Women would add a little Wood Betony to food to help resolve and argument with a loved one or end a grudge that caused a rift between lovers. It is said that the druids have long used this powerful herb during their midsummer rituals, to help aid in fertility & health, with the banishment of sickness or infertility in mind. For those who suffered night terrors or sleep paralysis, Wood Betony would offer a protective shield to the subconscious mind when kept in the pillow or by the bedside. When added with a pinch of Patchouli for manifestation power and ground into a powder for incense, it's believed that any darkness in your life will be banished & removed upon burning. Why does Wood Betony work so well with ridding us of the darkness? Because it blends with our energy & emotions, to build a protective barrier of our subconscious or overly conscious thoughts that come from a place of fear. It helps to raise our own vibrations, shifting us into an energetically higher vibration, helping to ward off the lower energies that no longer resonate with us.
