i would encourage you to have dialog about your practices with your family if you can. Even is subtle ways, it might surprise you. You could learn about you grandma having “the sight” or learn your family cold elixir. I found out that my great aunt who grew up on a reservation in Oklahoma almost died at birth but was cured by a medicine man that chewed up some herbs and shoved them in her mouth. i don’t know what those herbs are, but I find it fascinating. I think a lot of families have folk traditions and superstitions that can come out at strange times.

this is really important. like, my mother won’t talk outright about woo things, but will insert fun tidbits.

A somewhat crude and unusual encounter between two geographically and behaviourally different plants, one native to sub-polar regions of the North, whilst beautiful and lightly fragrant, all parts of this plant are considered poisonous. The other, a slightly carnivorous, exotic and threatened plant from South East Asia, feeds on the gooey soluble nutrients of fallen insects actually has many properties beneficial to humans, the roots can treat stomach aches and dysentery and the stem may be used to treat coughs and fevers.
