1. Basil

Basil is one of the most important herbs associated with prosperity, wealth and luck. It is connected to the Indian goddess Lakshmi who is the goddess of good fortune. The vibrant, green leaves of basil do not just taste wonderful but they are also said to look like paper money.

This appearance makes basil plants an important symbol for luck related to money. If you want to invite more luck into your home, then you can place a pot of basil near your door or even on the kitchen windowsill.

You should also tend to your basil plant regularly, as caring for basil is considered a way to grow your success and fortune. Basil can also be used in money spells and charms. Just leave basil leaves steeped in hot water for three days.

Then take the leaves out of the water and add the water with your basil essence to your cleaning water. Then clean as much as possible with the basil water. This will not just keep your house sparkling clean but it also invites wealth and prosperity into your home.

2. Clover

Clover is probably the most popular symbol when it comes to luck. A four leaf clover has been linked to good luck for hundreds of years. Originally, the three leaf clover is also connected with luck as the number 3 is often found in spiritual texts related to good fortune.

If you want to invite good luck into your life, then just pick a fresh cloverleaf in spring and put it into your wallet. This is believed to bring good luck and wealth.

But clover isn’t just considered to be a money herb, it’s a general good luck herb that can be used almost anywhere to give your good fortunes a boost. In addition to the lucky side, clover is also said to be a protective plant which wards off bad spirits and keeps negative energies away.

3. Rose

Rose is often associated with love for someone else but also love for yourself. This being said, rose is also a gentle herb which can be used for invoking luck and protection.

You can use rose hips or rose petals in dried form in pillows or also as essential oils. Garlands of roses can be worn for love spells (Also check out Top Five Incense For Love Spells). But you don’t need a bunch of roses. You can put a single rose into a vase onto an altar. This is also seen as a sign of good fortune.

If you prefer to use rose in liquid form, then you can add some rose petals to your cup of tea or to a bath. This is said to help anyone who wants to unveil their romantic future.

You can bake saffron into small cakes, like the ancient Phoenicians, and then eat the cakes to increase fertility and love in your life. In the past, women also worse saffron girdles around their waist to relieve menstrual cramps.

Besides the love potency of saffron, you can use it in a salve or essential oil for spiritual protection. Buddhist monks wear saffron-colored robes as a way to protect themselves against negative energies.

But you don’t need to wear saffron clothes to keep bad spirits at bay. Just make a small sachet and stuff it with saffron. You can then wear it in your pocket to attract more happiness, greater love and prosperity.
