Algae are beneficial because of their high concentration of protein and other dense nutrients. However, to get a lot of these benefits, one would have to consume a very large amount of it, which is why we don’t tend to make seaweeds a staple of our diets, choosing instead to eat other foods with higher levels of the same nutrients. Algae are in almost everything we eat, because it is the base of many food chains, especially aquatic ones. For example, fish rich in fatty acids get those nutrients because they eat fish that eat a lot of plankton.
Two roses opened up and I decided they seemed like good candidates for a small jar I had so the rose sugar experiment is on.
Essentially you peel your roses one petal at a time, inspect for anything that shouldn’t go in the jar and then you lay the petal down on the sugar. After each layer of petals, cover them with just enough sugar to not quite bury, and then start the next layer of petals. I used organic cane sugar produced entirely in the U.S.
It’s not like I did an intentional magickal anything when I assembled this, but as someone who has a lot of raw magick energy around them at this time, I must note that peeling roses a petal at a time led to me meditating on Viggo Mortensen’s role as Lucifer in The Prophecy while filling this jar. He says terrible things, has epic daddy beard and eats a rose. Then he literally eats Christopher Walken’s heart out.
That sort of makes it a short list for who might get this sugar when it’s done.
