As the essence is a rich earthy smell it also invokes Earth magic, especially that in stability, prosperity, and money spells, incense, and mixtures. Sprinkle it on money, add to purse and wallets, and place around the base of green candles to lure money into your life. It is also used in fertility talismans and a substitute for graveyard dust in spellcraft. It can be added to love sachets, spells, and baths.
