Our ancestors believed the trees, rivers, mountains, stones and animals had souls. These nature spirits were eventually deified and came to be the gods and goddesses as we know them today. For those who need a reference to gods and goddesses and their magical plant associations, here’s our A-Z list. The deities are not categorized by culture or origin. Knowing the magical plants associated with your deities will help you learn, as well as give ideas of appropriate offerings. If your god or goddess isn’t included, please leave a comment.
