Magical Uses of Irish Moss
- Lunar/Water Magic
Despite the name, Irish Moss is a type of seaweed and is an excellent luck herb. Carry it in your pockets or strew it beneath the rugs to ensure a steady flow of money. Stuff it into sachets or poppets for luck spells, or add to incense to increase the strength of luck, money, and prosperity spells. Toss a sachet of the dried herb into your luggage to keep you safe while traveling. Sprinkle an infusion of the herb around a place of business to attract customers.
Practical/Medicinal Uses of Irish Moss
Carrageenan, a seaweed gum processed from Irish Moss, is used as a thickener, binder, stabilizer, or emulsifier in various products. You can also use it to treat bronchitis and the common cold and inflammations in the stomach. There are very few health warnings related to commercially available preparations of this herb, and food-grade carrageenan is considered entirely safe.
