They can be used in protection spell jars, or sat nearby windows (especially those in the kitchen) and in front of doorways-if you have steps leading to your front door, or something to hide the thistle heads behind (like a flower pot), then place them near this area to protect your home from unwelcome visitors.
In love spells, they draw passion and intensity near to you. If you’re wanting sweet and delicate love, choose another plant! Thistles are all about quick ignition, bold advances and intense love. If you are looking for a partner who loves to travel, get active or try new things, thistles will help you find someone who is extroverted and willing to take on new challenges. In this sense, the plant can also be good for instilling these qualities in onself through self-growth spells (especially if you’re the kind who worries too much or fears the consequences of being spontaneous)! The thistle shows you that being brave and fearless is a mindset anyone can cultivate, and that luck is always nearby those who take (calculated) risks!
