Gathering Flowers, Herbs and Plants

Before cutting with the Boline, attune with the plant through visualization. Feel its energies. As you cut, say these or similar words:
"O little plant of (name, such as hyssop, etc.) I ask that you give of your
bounty that it may aid me in my work. Grow stronger by my stroke, stronger and more powerful, O plant of (name)!"

If it is a tree, substitute the appropriate word (tree of oak). Gently cut only what you need, and never from very young plants or more than twenty-five percent of the growth. At the base of the plant leave an offering: a silver coin, a bright jewel, a bit of wine or milk, grain, a quartz crystal and so on. Cover the offering and it is done.
