Magickal Uses and Folklore of Arrowroot
Arrowroot is used for Good Fortune, Shows Opportunity, Purification, cleansing, healing. Arrowroot will increase good luck and bring new opportunities to your attention. The mashed root is said to be an antidote for arrow poison, as well as poisonous insect stings (scorpions and spiders), and gangrene. Loose incense consists of dried, powdered ingredients. Ingredients described for powders may be combined with cornstarch, arrowroot powder, or rice powder to create a dusting powder. I make my magical powders in my home kitchen, using organic herbs from my garden, and scenting them with my handmade magical and ritual oils. Making powders is a delicate process, but a little goes a very long way.
It has been used in VooDoo for gambling and luck spells... So it is not just for cooking.
