Sacred to Diana and Aradia, Rue has a long history of medicinal, culinary and magical use. It is used magically for protection, often planted outside one’s home, or else scattered around whatever area needs to be warded. In a bath it is said to break curses. As aromatherapy it serves to clear the mind and evoke strong memories. When burned it allegedly cures ailments. It is sprinkled in a lover’s shoe to assure their loyalty.
