Magical Uses: Broom is used for purification and protection spells, and is hung in the home to keep evil out. Also an infusion of broom sprinkled throughout the house exorcises poltergeists. The plant is slightly poisonous so do not ingest! Carry to increase psychic powers. To raise the winds, throw broom into the air while invoking the spirits of the air, preferably from a hilltop. To calm the winds, burn broom and bury the ashes.
