Are you familiar with star anise?
Star anise is a type of herb shaped like a “star.” It carries a sweet and savory flavor commonly used in some native delicacies such as humba and patatim.
Aside from being a flavorful spice, star anise also possesses magical properties.
One of the powers that star anise holds is related to protection.
As a protection charm, place three pieces of star anise in your wallet. You can also string star anise onto a thread or cord to create a necklace that can be hung on the front door.
