Magical Uses: Increasingly available today, after a long period of unavailability, wood aloes have been used in magic for so many centuries that some mention of it has to be made here. Anciently, it was used to attract good fortune in Egypt, and burned as incense in magical evocatory rites during the Renaissance. It possesses high spiritual vibrations, and will bring love if carried or worn. Modern magical herbalists use wood aloes as a strengthening herb, by adding a small amount to other mixtures to intensify their powers.
