Focus on your desire or goal. Be clear and specific.

Each magical tradition has its own relationship with herbs, roots, and other botanicals. From the part of the plant that is used, to when it’s planted, to how it’s picked, to the method for using it, to safely disposing of the plant once it has done its job.
It’s important to do your research before working with botanicals, so look for books that explain plant magic in a way that matches how you want to work with them.
These books can guide you through selecting the best ingredients to match your intention. They instruct you on the proper mindset while preparing your spell or potion. They walk you through rituals and procedures to make sure everything is used safely.
Plant magic is powerful, but so is knowledge, so make sure you have the information you need before proceeding.
