The term herb is generally used to describe a plant that is herbaceous in nature, that is, it is not a tree or a shrub. However, when a witch or occultist uses the word "herb" we are generally referring to a plant that is useful without regard to its lifestyle. However, this designation often excludes those plants used for food; fruits and vegetables.

This list includes plants AND fungi that are useful to a witch, including those that are used for magick, crafting, food and healing including herbaceous plants, trees, shrubs and various fungi. Some are simply useful for decoration and some I have included for folkloric interest. That is to say; some herbs are more useful than others.

These herbs are also listed alphabetically and by keyword on our Herb Keyword Correspondences page.
