Shepherd's Purse is a plant of the mustard family. Native to the Mediterranean region, Shepherd's Purse has become naturalized worldwide. Due to its medicinal properties as a styptic (a substance that can stop bleeding when applied to a wound), its magical uses include protection from bleeding wounds and protection from disease or ailment. For prosperity, burn Shepherd's Purse with Bay leaves, cinnamon, and juniper berries - then keep the ash in a small jar and carry it with you for good fortune.
