Rue (Ruda) is considered the “Mother of All Herbs” and it's power seems to be limitless. Whether fixed in a candle or infused in a magical oil, rue is used for spiritual protection, cleansing, banishing and blessing. The ancients believed that rue could be used to protect one against the evil eye and other forms of black magick. Add a few pinches of rue herb to a black pouch and carry to protect and enhance positive vibrations. Along with being an essential tool in magick, rue can also be offered to invoke the Goddess Hecate and Diana.
