CINQUEFOIL / FIVE FINGER GRASS

Botanical Potentilla Erecta

This herb with numerous associations with mystical and spiritual traditions is known by a wide variety of names that can be found in numerous sources of literature concerning Wicca, and Hoodoo among other traditions. Within these texts and publications, it can be found listed as Cinquefoil, Cramweed, Five Finger Blossom, Five Fingers, Goosegrass, Goose Tansy, Moor Grass, Pentaphylon, Silver Sinquefoil, Silverweed, Sunkfield, and Synkefoyle, so as you can imagine, there is sometimes a great deal of confusion regarding the herb and its uses.

With leaves that come to five points, it is sometimes associated with the mystical properties of the pentagram, as well as five of the qualities that people most often seek in their lives, with those being love, money, health, power and wisdom. As such, it is often used in spells seeking financial gain, or by those who are otherwise seeking good fortune and self improvement. Among Hoodoo practitioners, it is sometimes carried in Mojo Bags specifically to bring love, money, health, power, and wisdom into their lives. In other traditions, it is also used to repel evil and negativity, particularly that which is caused by "the five fingers of man."
