Herbs as Charms

To ward off the malefic effects of the planets our seers have recommended a lot of remedies. To propitiate them it is recommended to donate the articles associated with the planet, recite the mantras, wear the gems etc. It is not possible for every person to wear the precious stones for remedy of planets; hence, our seers assigned roots of some herbs which could be used to propitiate the planets. No doubt these herbs give their same effect as desired from the gems. These herbs are not only used to propitiate the planets but are also useful in the diseases associated with the planets.

Now we should tell the processes for using theses roots. The very first thing one has to do is inviting the herb. The native has to go the plant and request him to come to his home to fulfill his desire. After this he should water the root of the plant and lit dhoop there. These herbs are uprooted during the Ravi-Pushya nakshtra. Besides, days have been assigned to each herb for uprooting. For Rahu Wednesday or Saturday, for Ketu Thursday etc. Before uprooting, the native should request to the powers that are residing on the tree to leave the tree for some time and make their base at some other place. The next day he should dig out the root either with hand or with some wood. At the end he should ask for pardon from the tree for giving it pains and again invite it to your home. Following are some of the herbs associated with the planets:-
