Rue is often used for protection against psychic attacks, as an antidote against hexes or curses and in spells to get things moving forward. Use this herb when you feel there are outside influences that may be causing harm or pushing you to do things you don't in fact want to do. Rue was highly regarded in ancient times and has a long history as a deeply cleansing and protective herb.
Rue is said to not only protect from outside influences but can help protect you from yourself if you fall into self sabotaging thoughts or bad habits.
