Specimen sighted: San Diego, CA
Bark: I see guides recommending to crush the bark any which way you desire (hands, mortar and pestle, rocks, etc) and sprinkle on any area for your desired effect such as candles, altars, or the ground. Candles is suggested less so than other methods. The Belbowrie bark can be used for any manifestation, they say it is more about your intentions. So it can be used for romance, love, money (best), career etc. Crush and sprinkle on the ground to ask for more rain (helps to pair with a dance).
Leaves: Leaves can be crushed and sprinkled over candles for an additional boost effect for your desires. With candles they recommend only for love and romance, not recommended for money. The bark or leaves that are crushed being sprinkled on the ground is better for money. Crush and sprinkle on the ground to ask for more rain (helps to do a dance).
Fruit/Nut/Cone: The seeds are not to be used for manifestation or magical purposes.
Flower: Guides explain that a child may blow on the flower to send its pieces into the air for a wish but not very effective for “grown up wishes”.
Elementals & Nature Spirits associated: Many, sprites, fairies, unicorns, animal kingdom elementals associated with piglets, mushrooms, grounding elementals, I see a rainbow here, there are more…
Candle manifesting: Yes, see bark up above, although not the best method. If crushed leaves are used then only for love and romance. (there is a little bit of sensitivity to the tree being “burned”, so be careful here, use your metaphysical senses to see if this is the right method for you at the time and by the tree spirits).
- Poultice: Not recommended
- Powder: Yes, the resulting powder can be used to sprinkle on the earth for blessings or manifestations, to call the rain (sprinkle on the ground), in candles or altars. Anywhere, whether it is the bark or leaves (see above sections).
- Tincture: Mixed answer here, any part of the tree can be used, however consult with a physician before using in anything consumable.
- Tea: Yes, the flower, however consult with a physician before trying to consume any part of a plant.
- Salve: Not recommended.
