Sacred Weeds - Henbane
This documentary is a scientific study on Henbane, a plant used by witches.
Henbane - Hyoscyamus niger - also known as Hen Pen, Henbell, Devil's Eye, Hog's-bean, Jupiter's-bean, Symphonica, Cassilata, Cassilago, Deus Caballinus, and Jusquiame - Henbane is one of the herbs of the underworld. Ritually it is used to summon spirits, relatives who have passed into other lives, and beings who live in the astral realms, though this sort of work should not be undertaken lightly and only if you are adept in this area. Common usage of Henbane is in working with increased psychic perception and clairvoyancy. Due to its toxic nature of this herb, it is best used as an incense. The root is the safest part of the plant and as such it can be gathered, dried and worn as an amulet. You can hang bunches of Henbane up to dry by the hinges of outer doors to protect against negative energy. Henbane was used ritually in ancient Scotland, apparently in connection with the dead. In Greek mythology, the dead who wander the shores of the River Styx are crowned with henbane, most likely because of its real life ability to make one forget oneself. Planetary Ruler is Saturn.
