Esoteric Online

I have been working to put together this breakdown of some daily planetary influences I observe and work into my Hermeticism, particularly the herbs in my Spagyric tinctures, with incense and colors for meditation. I will continue to make it more complete online, but I figured I would put it up as is for now as they will be used in an upcoming discussion "The Plant Work – Spagyrics".

I'm looking to buy some dried herbs online at  So far, I go by the description and the planet. 


Candidates so far:


Sage leaf - Jupiter/Saturn

LemonGrass - Saturn

Yerba Mate - Sun

Rosemary - Sun

Catnip - Venus

Nettle Leaf - Mars

Basil - Mars

Ginko - Mercury

PepperMint - Mercury

Parsley - Mercury

PennyRoyal - Moon


I read one person's experience with PennyRoyal which sounded interesting.  Can you give some summaries on your experiences with the herbs you've experimented with?  Here's the link I was referring to:

From my research I have found many different contradictions in planetary influences on herbs. The sun and moon herbs seem very much confirmed but others are conflicting.

Can anyone recommend any writings? Paracelsus or Celpeper or others?

...any help greatly appreciated
