The Magical Uses of the Rose of Jericho

The rose of Jericho is a plant known for its ability to return to life after many years of dormancy. It is also called a resurrection plant and has two species; Anastatica hierochuntica; the true plant and Selaginella Lepidophylla; the false plant. It is said that the Rose of Jericho brings blessings and good luck when kept in the home. In Hoodoo, it is used in prosperity and love spells.

This plant often seem dried and dead  but when you put a little water the balls open and looks like a radiant rose. Among the most well-known rituals performed with this rose, one can mention the spells against envy, the evil eye and bad vibes.

How to Invoke the Power of Rose of Jericho


  • Place the plant in a dish of water with its roots submerged in the water.
  • Allow it for about seven days and it will begin to rot after prolonged exposure to water.
  • Sprinkle the water along the doorways of your home and business locations as this will bring you wealth and abundance.
  • You can place the bowl containing the Rose of Jericho by your front door to attract prosperity.

Another simple ritual to perform is to anoint your prosperity candle with Rose of Jericho oil before saying your prayers.  Once you’ve done the spell and received your results you can remove the Rose from the water and say to it:

” Thank you for all your blessings,

I put you back to your sleep.

Rest and be ready to aid me with blessings

When I call you back to life again. Blessed be!”

You can store the plant somewhere safe until when needed again. Many families will carefully keep the plant and pass it from generation to generation.


The best days to awaken your Rose of Jericho are on Tuesdays and Fridays at 9 A.M or 3 P.M respectively but if you are led to awaken it at a different time, just do it.

After putting the Rose of Jericho into the bowl of water, ensure to replace the water after some days and Sundays are best for this. Keep the water fresh because dirty water could hurt your plant.

In religious practices,  holy water can be substituted with the water of Jericho. Also your Rose of Jericho might ask for offerings and when it does, ensure to offer something nice.
