Identify the living plant or tree you wish to use, making sure it is nontoxic and not imperiled. Using a ritual tool or your finger, cast a magick circle around the plant, asking for protection from earth, air, fire, and water. Ask Gaia for permission to gather the plant:
"Mother Gaia, bringer and sustainer
of life, I ask to harvest from this plant
for my magickal purposes, taking only
what I need. I bring this offering."
Scatter plant food or fertilizer around the plant's base. Wait for a sign giving an answer to your request. Then gather only what you need from the plant, and before leaving, make a second offering of water to the plant. Close the circle, give thanks to the plant's spirit, and depart.
