|One of the best parts of summer is the way everything is blooming and smells so sweet. Many herbs are at their peak around now, and can be used for magical work both large and small. Rosemary, for instance, is good for mental activities, lemon balm for healing, and basil for prosperity.
Pick an herb or plant that has the qualities you want to work on (if you can't get fresh, essential oils will do), and breathe deep, pulling the magical essence of the plant inside along with its scent. You can say this spell as you enjoy the earthy energy of the plant:
"From the earth you have grown,
Your scent so sweet and light.
Lend your power to my magic,
Under summer skies so bright."
