Vocal Integrity Elixir

Spell-a-Day: Day 24

Originally posted by parmandil

Description: An elixir to help promote vocal integrity while maintaining vocal health. It is meant to increase the beauty of your voice and cause you to use it to communicate better.


Materials:

  1. Honey
  2. Jasmine tea
  3. Slippery elm
  4. Strawberries
  5. Water

Notes:

  1. If you would like to get fancy you could use orange honey for warmth or vocal resilience.
  2. If you would like to bless your water or charge it with intent for communication or beauty, or both, please do. If performing for a religious event it might even be nice to use Holy Water.
  3. If this is how you make money, you could also add some mint.

Instructions:

  1. Perform any pre-spell rituals.
  2. Create jasmine tea with the water. While the water is still hot, add the honey and dissolve it in. Also add the slippery elm.
  3. Allow the tea to cool.
  4. Put chopped strawberries inside with ice and drink.

Notes:

  1. The slippery elm will coat your membranes and soothe them. I am unsure if this will make it more difficult to feel pain. If it does, proceed with caution. Not being able to feel pain while singing can be dangerous for your vocal health.
  2. Please buy slippery elm from a reputable seller and determine if you are allergic before ingesting.
  3. If you are adding mint, do so when you add the strawberries.
