Lemongrass is ruled by Mercury and is helpful for awakening magical skills. It is an excellent addition to ritual, ceremonial, and divination magic. It can also be added to incense or oils for shapeshifting, glamours, and invisibility. It can be incredibly beneficial since Mercury is also known as a master of disguise. This wonderful lemon-scented herb can lend "innocence" to trickster items, and it is a vital ingredient in Van Van oil.
Unlike other citrus scents, lemongrass is relaxing and mildly sedating. So it works well for aiding in sleep and relaxation. It can be mixed with Mugwort, Lavender, or Chamomile and sewn into a dream pillow for a restful and peaceful sleep.
It can be burned, bathed in, or carried on the person for lust, fidelity, honesty, growth, strength, psychic powers, and purification. It can be used as a charm to attract the object of the heart's desire and may bring honesty to your relationships. A handful of the leaves can be put in a mesh bag, placed under the water tap for a purification bath, and to attract and keep a lover.
