The leaves and early flowers of the plant can be dried and burned. The smoke is thought to promote visions and can induce lucid dreaming. Burning the herb is also thought to move stagnant energy in the home and can be used as a smudge to clear a space.
The tea from steeped leaved can also be used to clean altar objects, cleansing them of any negative energy that they might be holding. Young leaves can be used in a tincture, and these leaves should be harvested during the full moon.
