Star Anise or Illicium Verum, is a highly fragrant plant that most people know by its strong licorice scent. This beautiful spice can be used as a tea, in savory dishes, in deserts and so many other versatile ways. 

The tree is planted around Buddhist temples and on graves as an herb of consecration and protection.

The seeds are burned as incense to increase psychic powers, and are also worn as beads for the same purpose. Place one pod in each of the four directions on your altar to give it more power. It is also carried as a general luck-bringer, and the seeds make excellent pendulums.  

Star anise is a popular herb in hoodoo and is said to cast off the well-known ‘evil eye’ curse. It is said to be a powerful psychic herb and can increase visions, ward off nightmares, cleanse bad juju and clear a negative space. It strengthens psychic abilities and can be used while sleeping by placing it in a pouch under your pillow.
