Magical use: this plant is a binding weed and can be used as such in spells and charms but be warned and take care for Binding spells are used to bind (or hold) things. The usual reason for this is to bind a person or spirit to prevent it from doing damage to you, or someone else, or itself.

 Care must be taken when binding spirits since they will almost always bind to the caster and you must have a plan for it after it is bound. However, if you are skilled enough to cast a binding spell you will also be skilled enough to handle any bound spirits.

 A binding spell using Pink knot weed:
First tie a peace of pink knot weed into a knot and say this charm  3x3

To be protected from all you do,
This magic charm I cast on you,
With spoken words I bind thee,
For you to forever let me be,
To be protected from your harm,
Three times three I seal this charm".

Now take the knotted weed and dig down into the earth 9 inches and place the pink knot weed in said hole and cover ( do not look back) you may feel a pull to do so but the binded will be fighting this so DO NOT LOOK BACK ! turn and walk away ………………..Pen
