Which Herb Should I Use?

Another quiz for beginners to help you determine what starter herbs to use for certain purposes. Like the crystal quiz, I will only be listing five of what I consider to be the easier to find and use herbs. You should be able to find all of these in the spice section of your local grocery store. If you’re looking for affordable, I really like the brand Badia, and there’s this other brand I get at the local asian market but I can’t remember the name for the life of me but they’re like 69 cents a bag.

What Sect of the Craft is Best for You?

I decided that I wanted to do a little personality-based assessment to help witchlings determine what sect of the craft they should start out in, or to help seasoned practitioners confirm or expand their own practices.
