Hair Wash for Mental Strength

this is a strength spell/hair wash, inspired by the incredible mental toughness of teyla emmagan (stargate atlantis). teyla, besides being a natural leader, remains strong through multiple traumatic and difficult events, and has telepathic abilities that require extreme psychological solidarity to use.

“from strength comes hope.”
 - teyla emmagan

✩ put the water, rosemary and thyme in a saucepan, stating each herb’s purpose as you place it in.

✩ bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer for 5-10 minutes, or until the water has been strongly infused.

✩ the enchantment should last until the next time you wash your hair.

We all have that one fandom. That fandom that saved us. That fandom that taught us to be who we are today. That fandom who gave us hope when we had none. That fandom that was there for us when no one else was. Those characters who’s lives changed our own. The characters who helped us accept who we are. Those stories which taught us about bravery, friendship, determination and love, more then any text book could. We all have that fandom. That fandom who’s characters and stories inspired us. Inspired us to be better. Inspired us to create. Inspired us to live. Do not let anyone tell you that fandom is meaningless or silly or stupid or immature. Because fandoms save us.
