Bay is most often used in Clairvoyance and wisdom brews, placed under the pillow to induce prophetic dreams and are also burned as incense to induce visions.
Worn as a protection amulet, Bay leaves are excellent for warding off evil and negativity. They can also be placed around the home for this purpose - This is one of a few alternatives we suggest to our clients who are unable to burn white sage or Palo Santo for clearing energies.
Wishes written on a Bay leaf and burned are likely to come true.
