Barberry is used for Cleansing, sorcery, atonement, freeing oneself from the power or control of another.
Also Called: Witches Sweets

Barberry, sewn into an amulet, acts as a protective charm for children and is believed to ease teething. Ritually collected and consecrated Barberry can be used as counter magic and protection against evil witchcraft and curses that are transferred by magically prepared thorns.

Sprinkled in the paths of your enemies to bar their way and stop them following you.

Use the bark of the root or the stem for best results. Gather the root in Spring or Fall. Only use the berries when ripe. Used in potions for healing

Used for hexing.  Brings bitterness, sourness.  Sprinkled around the premises to bring bad vibes and quarrels.  On the flip side, it is used with vetivert and Bay leaves to protect against bitterness - but that's risky.  Said to work for good grudgingly and delights in hexing.

Use in consultation with a medical practitioner. If taken in excess, barberry may cause nausea, vomiting, convulsions, low blood pressure, abnormally low heartbeat and breathing.

Not to be taken during pregnancy or when trying to conceive.

When taken internally it may counteract short-acting blood thinners.

Men who have problems in fathering a child should avoid barberry, as it contains palmitine hydroxide which could interfere with the maturation of sperm cells which may contribute to sterility.
