CALAMUS
(Acorus calamus) Poison: Several plants are
sold under the name of Calamus and two of
those are very dangerous to take internally,
so we must recommend not using calamus
internally.
Folk Names: Gladdon, Myrtle Flag, Myrtle
Grass, Myrtle Sedge, Sweet Cane, Sweet
Flag, Sweet Grass, Sweet Root, Sweet Rush,
Sweet Sedge, Lubigan
Gender: Feminine
Planet: Moon
Element: Water
Powers: Luck, Healing, Money, Protection
Magical Uses: The seeds are strung as beads
and used for healing, or the powdered root
is used in healing incenses and sachets.
Small pieces of the root kept in all corners
of the kitchen protect against hunger
and poverty.
Growing the plant brings good luck to
the gardener, and calamus is also used to
strengthen and bind spells.
