Common Magickal Uses and Folklore of Bladderwrack
Seaweeds generally give protection to those at sea or those who are flying over it. International travelers should consider carrying it.
They are used in sea spells to summon the spirits of the sea by throwing them onto the waves and calling them. This will gain their favor, and they will aid in your magic.
Kelp is used to summoning the winds: Stand on the shore and hold a long strand of fresh seaweed n your hand. Whip it around in the air, your head in a clockwise direction, and whistle. The winds will come.
Bladderwrack is used for thyroid disorders, including underactive thyroid (myxedema), over-sized thyroid gland (goiter), and iodine deficiency. It is also used for obesity, arthritis, joint pain, “hardening of the arteries” (arteriosclerosis), digestive disorders, heartburn, “blood cleansing,” constipation, bronchitis, emphysema, urinary tract disorders, and anxiety. Other uses include boosting the immune system and increasing energy.
Some people also apply bladderwrack to skin diseases, burns, aging skin, and insect bites.
