Buy dried Poppy flowers to use them in your Spells and Rituals.The Old Ways revered Poppy as the flower which can cross the Realms. Therefore, Witches loved to use it in order to cross the borders of the physical Realm, in a quest to find whatever they were looking for. Because of this belief, Poppy was used in Dream spells, death & rebirth spells, memory spells yet also love spells.
Poppies are sacred to all sons and daughters of Nyx – Goddess of the Night. Furthermore, it was extensively used to summon Death (Thanatos), Dreams (Oniros), Sleep (Hypnos) as well as Demeter (Goddess of Earth) and Persephone (Goddess and Queen of the Underworld). Moreover, where poppies sprout, was considered a sign of blessing from Demeter, Goddess of Earth. Therefore, poppy flowers were given as a libation to the Goddess.
Poppy flowers were also sacred to Aphrodite, Goddess of Beauty and Love. When her beloved Adonis was killed, his blood dyed the flower with this radiant red colour. Therefore, Poppies were used in love and passion spells, as an invocation to Aphrodite and Adonis.
Celts and druids used to make a juice from poppies and mix it with food given to babies to banish diseases.
