Jericho Flowers (Selaginella lepidophylla)
These flowers of Mexico are of great use in love spells where you are seeking to bring to life love that has died or create love where there was none before. Sometimes called Rose of Jericho, or resurrection flower.
This plant is known scientifically as "Anastatica hierochuntica", which grows naturally in northern Africa and southwest Asia. These plants have the remarkable ability to survive in a curled up, dormant, brown, lifeless state for years, and then unfurl, and turn an emerald green when placed in a couple of inches of water. After re-hydrating, they go dormant again when their water source is removed, and can be revived again after dormancy. This cycle can be repeated for years. Because of this astounding characteristic it has been called the resurrection plant, Jerusalem rose, dinosaur plant, conjure weed, and rose of Jericho. It is attributed with various magickal properties and is one the best house hold and self purification ingredients I know of. You simply asperge your house and yourself with it's water anytime, great before ritual!
