I’ll take VANILLA!

According to Christopher Penczak’s City Magick, vanilla can be used as an ingredient in making magical charms:

“The vanilla bean is a powerful bean ruled by the planet Pluto. It is an innocent flavor, loved in ice cream and cookies, but the actual properties of the bean bring transformations and change reality. Pluto is the planet of life, death, and the underworld. Vanilla beans can be found in gourmet shops, but often their properties, in diluted form, are transferred to vanilla extract and vanilla oil. Add a few drops to an herbal charm when you need these strong transformative powers.”

According to Elise Marie Collins’ An A-Z Guide to Healing Foods, vanilla is good for you too:

“Vanilla is the edible fruit of a tropical orchid. Mexican royalty used vanilla as an aphrodisiac, and one study showed that men responded to the aroma of vanilla. Vanilla was used by indigenous people to calm an upset stomach. The less processed the vanilla, the better, so purchase whole pods or pure vanilla in the form of raw powder or extract for your recipes.”

According to Kris Bradley Mrs. B’s Guide to Household Witchery, vanilla can be used to cast a spell to ward away your tongue-tied tendencies:
