The Magic of Queen Anne's Lace
Queen Anne’s lace got its name from a myth in which Queen Anne accidentally stabbed her finger with a needle while she was making lace, spilling her blood on it. This is reminiscent of the reddish-purple flowers that can be found amongst the white flowers of the plant.
At its root, Queen Anne’s lace contains a plant that is very similar to carrots, and is believed to be where carrots originated from. Hence, Queen Anne’s lace is also known as “wild carrot.”
Although the flower is used in fertility magic, the seeds were once used as a “morning after” treatment to provoke a miscarriage, as the seeds can bring about the menstrual cycle. Queen Anne’s lace flowers were once brewed into a concoction that was used as a daily skin wash and to treat complexion problems.*
The flowers of Queen Anne’s lace can be used in fertility magic, and can also be used to increase lust, sexual desire and potency for men. Along with oil, you can anoint a candle with Queen Anne’s lace when trying to improve your chances to conceive. It can also be used to bring about spiritual clarity, and increase intuition and insight while keeping you grounded.
Planting Queen Anne’s lace around the house can increase psychic power, and placing the dried stems and flowers in a sachet under your pillow can encourage psychic dreams. Queen Anne’s lace can be made into a tea that can help lessen the severity of hangovers and assist in the treatment of diabetes.*
