Mistletoe can be found figuring prominently in the folklore of the ancients of a great many cultures. In Greek Mythology, it is believed to be the Golden Bough of Aeneas, who was led from Troy by Venus to found Rome. In Norse mythology, Mistletoe was reportedly what killed Baldr, who was the god of light and beauty. Within Celtic and Druidic beliefs, mistletoe is often considered a remedy for the barrenness of animals, as well as a cure for poison, though, ironically, the berries of Mistletoe are poisonous. With leaves that stay green year-round and fruit that appears around the Celtic birth of the New Year, the Winter Solstice, it was frequently used in Druidic rites involving the holiday, and grew into a symbol of immortality. Later Christians also held that Mistletoe was a tree that furnished the cross, and then shriveled after the crucifixion, and becoming a parasitic vine. Aside from these traditions, it has also been known in spells and rituals where it is used to produce an aphrodisiac effect, or aid in fertility and love. It has also been held as a sacred form of protection that can help produce prophetic visions.

In Europe, the leaves and twigs are rather popular among herbalists in treating circulatory and respiratory system problems. Some also prescribe treatments of mistletoe where it is said to help with hypertension and epilepsy, as well as menstrual problems, hemorrhage, and headache. Ingestion is typically discouraged, however, as mistletoe can be poisonous, depending on what variety of mistletoe is used and where it grows.

Indeed, an example in California is believed by some to be well over 11,000 years old. For these qualities it was often revered within local lore, and the Southwestern Native Americans often used the sap as a sunscreen, and the plant in general as a treatment for assorted ailments, including blood poisoning, and liver disease. They also used to the leave to brew a tea that they would use to rid the body of parasites. Modern herbalists see it most commonly as an expectorant, of great use in treating respiratory issues like asthma, bronchitis, and the coughing symptoms of the common cold.

Studies have been conducted that show the leaf to aid in restricting cancerous growth.

Also known as Catmint and its Latin name of Nepeta Cataria, Catnip is actually the broad name for over 250 flowering species of plants that belong to the genus of Nepeta. Originally from Mediterranean regions, Catnip has since become common throughout North America, and is famous for the effects it has on cats. In two thirds of all cats, catnip induces a state of euphoria, often resulting in them acting rather off the wall and crazy, frequently in manners that are entirely impossible to predict. The remaining third of cats are actually completely immune to this effect, and have no observed reaction to the herb. Interestingly, some people also experience a much milder version of this euphoria, and it is sometimes employed in spiritual and magickal purposes to help find this state of mind or help forge a psychic bond with animals. Today, it is most commonly found in cat toys around the world, but catnip tea has also been found to be quite beneficial in treating colds, fevers, and other infections. Some studies also suggest that it is soothing for upset stomachs and may possibly be helpful in preventing morning sickness in pregnant women.

Nettle is also thrown onto a fire to avert danger, held in the hand to ward off ghosts, carried with yarrow to allay fear, and worn as an amulet to keep negativity far away. Nettle has sometimes been used as a lust-inducing herb,and contemporary Mexican spiritualists recommend its use in purification baths because it is more 'carniverous' than other herbs, and so will work more efficiently.
