If you have experience in making your own products, skip this section and get started on making your own lip balms! If not, keep reading for helpful information and tips!

Let’s get started!

First thing is first, have all ingredients out and ready for use! When working with wax and oils, the last thing you want is anything over-boiling or drying on you! For the Double boiler, you will need a saucepan & a small pot. 

  1. Begin by adding water to your saucepan, just enough to heat your small pot. Place small pot inside of saucepan. Turn heat on high temp. After pot is heating, add 1 tbsp. of Beeswax, Shea Butter, and Coconut Oil to your small pot, and stir well until ingredients melt.
  2. Add 15-20 drops of your essential oil. I used a mixture of Tea Tree for healing, Lavender for soothing, and Rosemary & Jasmine for an additional lovely fragrance. Feel free to play around with your essential oils to create your own signature scent, but be sure to only add 15-20 drops total!
  3. Here’s the fun part! Adding the ingredients to your tubes! This is where your plastic pipette comes in handy. When you are done filling your tubes, do not put the caps on until it is completely dry so it can dry faster! Congratulations! You’re all done! Enjoy your new homemade Lip Balm!

Angst

She was all he ever wanted, but she was never there long enough, wasn’t always his. No one could have her, the grips of fate were too strong. There had to be a way to change it.

1744: Age 8

His eyes stung, the water like pin-pricks to his pupils. He wouldn’t blink, eyes trained on the colorful fish swimming beneath him as he imagined that he too could live under the water, out of the ever-present heat, escape the responsibilities of a family barely living. Air rushed into his lungs the moment his head broke the surface of the water. It was cool, yet it burned his airways. It felt good to breathe, but it hurt, making his sides cramp with the heavy gasps of air and spurts of water leaving his mouth as he coughed. A minute and a half, that’s a new record! 

The sun was beating down hard, already beginning to dry his clothes, just not fast enough. The linen sleeves of his shirt were weighed down by the liquid soaking them. The material clung to his skin, hot and wet, sticking to him just the right way so that any movement would pull the shirt with it, chafing his skin just enough to be irritating. The water reached his waist, so he had to put his hands on solid ground and ball his hands in the blades of grass in order to heave his small frame out of the river.

STFU Powder

Intent: To bind tongues, silence gossip, and get loud-mouthed jerks to SHUT THE FUCK UP.

Ingredients:

  • Slippery Elm
  • Deerstongue
  • Nettle
  • Sassafras
  • Bloodroot

Materials:

  • Mortar & Pestle (or spice grinder)
  • Funnel
  • Mesh Strainer
  • Collection Dish
  • Container

Grind each ingredient separately for several minutes to produce fine powder. Sieve the material through the mesh strainer into the collection dish; this removes the larger ungrindable pieces and gives you cleaner powdered herb. (Pro-Tip: Putting a funnel under the strainer helps reduce lost material.)

Combine the component powders in the collection dish, mix well, and bottle immediately.

Sprinkle where you know the target will be, particularly in meeting places where you know the target will be tempted to ramble on. Add to any spellwork with similar intent.

Bts Reaction to you Being a Better Chef Than Them

Request: /gif or no idk/ bts reaction when their s/o and them bet who is better at cooking and their s/o wins~

A/N: This was such a cute request! I hope you enjoy~


Seokjin

He would be ashamed, confused embarrassed, baffled, over-dramatic, in pain on the floor crying. You had just beat the Kim Seokjin at his own game. And trust me, you would not hear the end of it. (and neither would he from his members)

“How could you beat me? I don’t understand!”

Prepare to be the ultimate chef forever. When you beat this boy, you would very quickly become the household chef, and get ready to be preparing him his lunch pretty much everyday. This is kind of his coping mechanism for being bitter about losing to you.

“Babe~ I’m hungry…”

He tends to be rather proud of his cooking, he’s even stated before that he would be considered bts’ mom because he cooks so much, so if you beat him there would be no end to the praises he would give you.

“Y-you beat me!? You must be the greatest chef ever!”

Let’s be honest, this boy can’t even chop an onion. So you beating him in a cooking competition would be no surprise to him or the judges. He would most definitely use this as a way to make you cook for him more, though.

“But Y/n~ you saw how bad I am at cooking!”

Jimin

Honestly, he’d be just the slightest bit bitter about losing. He has a play-to-win kind of attitude, but when he tasted your own food, he would agree with the judges.

“I can’t believe you won, let me taste it. I take it back you won.”

Taehyung

This little puppy wouldn’t even take the bet seriously. He would either be using it as a way to see you covered in flower/powder/cooking materials and just watch you, or as a way to make you cook for him more.

“Babe~ You’re a much better cook than me, remember?”

Jungkook

Appalled. How on earth could the golden maknae lose at something as simple as cooking? He’d go on rants upon rants upon challenges to a rematch and all of the above. You’re not allowed to win with Kook as your boyfriend.

“Nope, it was rigged. The judges were biased. I will noT ACCEPT THIS!”

Silver Box

Summary: The reader is the Winchester’s little sister, and as Sam catches her doing something that looks more illegal than it is she gets an (undeserved) earful from the brothers

Triggers: Hints at drugs 

Word Count: 1913 (Oneshot)

Y/N = Your name

You carefully cut the porous, powder-likematerial in the silver box into an even finer powder with the tip of the butter knife you’d gotten from the kitchen. Careful not to spill any of it, as you crushed every remaining little cluster of it with the the cold steel, mixing it around from time to time to look for other stray lumps. The rest of the necessary “ingredients” for your little experiment were lined up on your bedside table as you worked meticulously, focusing only on the task at hand. You were so focused on what you were doing that you didn’t even hear Sam enter your bedroom until he was halfway across the bedroom floor looking down at you.

“What the HELL are you doing (Y/N)?” He said, the tone of his voice a bit more accusatory than you deemed necessary as you rolled your eyes at him. “No don’t even bother… Wait till Dean hears about this… You are so dead,” His words cut you off as you opened your mouth to defend yourself. And as quickly as he’d appeared in your room he took off again.

All you could do was stare quizzically after the back of his flannel sweater as your older brother disappeared back out the door. Most likely to tattle on what you were doing, or at least what he thought you were doing, to your other big brother, Dean.

Persuasion Powder

Intent: To make your words ring true with your listeners, to sway them to your point of view without directly commanding, to make your arguments strong and get your point across in a convincing fashion.

Ingredients:

  • Wild Cherry Bark
  • Marshmallow Root
  • Galangal Root
  • Cloves
  • Allspice
  • Orris Root

Materials:

  • Mortar & Pestle
  • Funnel
  • Mesh Strainer
  • Collection Dish
  • Container

Grind each ingredient separately for several minutes to produce fine powder. Sieve the material through the mesh strainer into the collection dish; this removes the larger ungrindable pieces and gives you cleaner powdered herb. (Pro-Tip: Putting a funnel under the strainer helps reduce lost material.)

For the Wild Cherry Bark, Marshmallow Root, and Galangal Root, retain the leftover large pieces that don’t make it through the strainer. You can use this for loose incense or charm bags later. Remember, witchlings: waste not, want not! (If you don’t have Marshmallow or Galangal Root handy, plain sugar and cinnamon will suffice.)

Combine the component powders in the collection dish, mix well, and bottle immediately.

Sprinkle a little pinch in your shoes before going to important meetings or interviews, or any time you feel like you might need your arguments to have a little extra oomph. This powder can also be used in any spellwork intended to achieve the same result.

Traveler's Luck Powder

Intent: To keep one safe and free from mishaps on long trips.

Ingredients:

  • Irish Moss (aka Carrageen)
  • Comfrey Root
  • Feverfew
  • Black Cohosh
  • White Oak Bark
  • Nutmeg

Materials:

  • Mortar & Pestle
  • Funnel
  • Mesh Strainer
  • Collection Dish
  • Container


IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not use the Black Cohosh if you are or think you might be pregnant. If need be, you can substitute Basil.

Grind each ingredient separately for several minutes to produce fine powder. Sieve the material through the mesh strainer into the collection dish; this removes the larger ungrindable pieces and gives you cleaner powdered herb. (Pro-Tip: Putting a funnel under the strainer helps reduce lost material.)

Retain the leftover large pieces that don’t make it through the strainer. You can use this for loose incense or charm bags later. Remember, witchlings: waste not, want not! (For the Nutmeg, supermarket spice works just fine.)

Combine the component powders in the collection dish, mix well, and bottle immediately.

Fold a few pinches in a paper packet containing your travel details. Tuck this into your luggage or the glove compartment of your car. For more travel general protection, you can sprinkle a few pinches in the footwells of your car, or just keep a few blank paper packets around if you frequently travel on short notice.

Come Hither Powder

For attraction of love, romance, and sensual pleasures. (Does not guarantee longevity or fidelity. USE SPARINGLY.)

Ingredients:

  • 2 pt Sugar
  • 1 pt Savoury
  • 1 pt Red Roses
  • 1 pt Honeysuckle Blossom
  • ½ pt Ginger Root
  • ½ pt Lovage Herb
  • ½ pt Poppy Seeds
  • 3 crushed Apple Seeds per ½ cup batch

Materials:

  • Mortar & Pestle or Spice Grinder
  • Funnel
  • Mesh Strainer
  • Collection Dish
  • Container

Grind each ingredient separately for several minutes to produce fine powder. Sieve the material through the mesh strainer into the collection dish; this removes the larger ungrindable pieces and gives you cleaner powdered herb. (Pro-Tip: Putting a funnel under the strainer helps reduce lost material.)

Retain any leftover unground material or large pieces that don’t make it through the strainer. You can use this for loose incense or charm bags later. Remember, witchlings: waste not, want not!

Combine the component powders in the collection dish, mix well, and bottle immediately.

Dust yourself very lightly with the powder before going to mixers or singles parties, or to any event where you feel you might meet someone exciting and attractive. If this is not your style, you can put a pinch in your shoes or carry a small bottle around your neck.

Cast a palmful into wind or fire on a full moon night to attract a lover. Add to love incenses for a spicy-sweet kick to your liaisons. Double the sugar and add olive oil to make a hand scrub for attracting a romantic partner.

(May be used to add a brief, adventurous zing to established relationships. Just make sure that all parties involved are aware and consenting, and be sure that you don’t rely on it to keep things together once the high wears off.)

This powder can be countered by Get Thee Hence Powder, should the need arise.

Note: All love magic should be undertaken with great care. Do not use this powder to attempt to ensnare a specific person; circumventing free will for love magic is deplorable, and besides, it will not work. Be aware that the person you do attract may not be your ideal match. The love this powder attracts burns hot and fast, and it is not made to last forever. Always protect yourself and practice safe sex!

"Outta My Way" Powder

Intent: To remove difficult obstacles caused by other people.

Ingredients:

  • Sumac Berries (sub: Vetiver)
  • Galangal Root (sub: Cinnamon)
  • White Oak Bark
  • Sassafras
  • Black Sugar
  • Cloves

Materials:

  • Mortar & Pestle
  • Funnel
  • Mesh Strainer
  • Collection Dish
  • Container


IMPORTANT NOTE: There many species of Sumac growing in North America, and it’s important to know the difference if you go out to harvest your berries from the wild.

Staghorn Sumac (Rhus typhina) or Smooth Sumac (Rhus glabra) are the ones you want. They have narrow leaves, upright cones of fuzzy red berries, and are relatively harmless. The fruit, which ripens from July through September (search in the fall for dried cones), is edible and can be used to make a pinkish, lemony-flavored drink, or ground to add spice to meat and vegetables.

External image

Poison Sumac (Toxicodendron vernix) is a mimic and is not true sumac. It has white berries, wider leaves, and causes an itchy and highly uncomfortable rash, and should be scrupulously avoided. A general rule of thumb: if you see a plant whose leaves have an oily-looking sheen, DO NOT TOUCH IT. “Leaves that shine, no friend of mine.” Better safe than sorry.

External image

If you cannot obtain wild sumac (or just don’t want to go tramping through the woods), the berries are available for purchase online, or you can substitute Vetiver.

Grind each ingredient separately for several minutes to produce fine powder. Sieve the material through the mesh strainer into the collection dish; this removes the larger ungrindable pieces and gives you cleaner powdered herb. (Pro-Tip: Putting a funnel under the strainer helps reduce lost material.)

For the White Oak Bark, Sassafras, and Galangal Root, retain the leftover large pieces that don’t make it through the strainer. You can use this for loose incense or charm bags later. Remember, witchlings: waste not, want not! (If you don’t have Galangal Root handy, plain cinnamon will suffice.)

Combine the component powders in the collection dish, mix well, and bottle immediately.

Sprinkle where you know the person who is the cause of your problem will be walking. Alternatively, you can write down a list of your grievances, the method by which you want to obstacle removed, and the ideal outcome, then add a few pinches of the powder and folder the paper into a tight packet (use tape on the edges). You can stick this in a jar or keep it tucked away or carry it in your pocket, whichever is more relevant to your situation.

Honest Passion Powder

To increase passion, devotion, and happiness in a relationship.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pt Bloodroot
  • 1 pt Red Roses
  • 1 pt Rose-scented Incense Powder
  • ½ pt Hibiscus Flower
  • ½ pt Jezebel Root
  • ½ pt Cherry Bark
  • ½ pt Red Clover
  • Pinch of Dragon’s Blood

Materials:

  • Grinding Device (Mortar & Pestle or Spice Grinder)
  • Funnel
  • Mesh Strainer
  • Collection Dish
  • Container

Grind each ingredient separately to produce fine powder. Sieve the material through the mesh strainer into the collection dish; this removes the larger ungrindable pieces and gives you cleaner powdered herb. (Pro-Tip:Putting a funnel under the strainer helps reduce lost material.)

Retain the leftover large pieces that don’t make it through the strainer. You can use this for loose incense or charm bags later. Remember, witchlings: waste not, want not!  

Combine the component powders in the collection dish, mix well, and bottle immediately.

Sprinkle a pinch in the corners of your bedroom to increase happiness and passion. Use in any spellwork related to fidelity, increased devotion, better communication, or re-connecting with your partner(s). Burn as you would any powdered incense for these purposes as well. If you wish to use the powder as incense, you may want to add just a pinch or two more Rose incense powder or Dragon’s Blood oil and mix well to help it burn more completely.

(Safety Note: If you are allergic to any of the ingredients in this recipe, please do not make it.)

Potion??

Potion - Share a recipe for any potion you like.

Well, it’s going to be more a POWDER than a potion, because I don’t generally do potions. Sticky things, take forever to simmer, often they smell bad, and gods help you if they’re not stored properly. Magical mold problems, yay.

Everybody knows my Banishing Powder, so here’s something a little different:

Lucky Day Powder

Intent: To cause good luck and high probability of success to follow one for a single day.

Ingredients:

Orange Peel
Cinnamon
Fenugreek
Ginger
Lemon Peel
Optional - Irish Moss (aka Carrageen)

Materials:

Mortar & Pestle (or spice grinder)
Funnel
Mesh Strainer
Collection Dish
Container

Note: Powdered versions of most herbs are available online. See my Online Resources page for recommended vendors.. Also, if you can get your hands on a good spice grinder, you can make your own powder from dried herb products.

Grind each ingredient separately to produce fine powder. Sieve the material through the mesh strainer into the collection dish; this removes the larger unground pieces and gives you cleaner powdered herb. (Pro-Tip: Putting a funnel under the mesh strainer reduces lost material and makes collection much easier.)

Combine the component powders in the collection dish, mix well, and bottle immediately. For volume, go heavier on the less expensive or more easily available materials like Cinnamon, Ginger, and powdered fruit peels.

Put a pinch in your shoes before going out on any day that you need a boost of good fortune, or chance to sway in your favor. Also useful for spellwork related to finding or keeping employment and obtaining wealth. Add to incenses and charms designed to bring luck. Combine in a jar with sesame seeds for long-term household use.

(For more magical powder recipes, I highly recommend picking up The Witches’ Cupboard, written just this past year with my super-awesome co-author, Anna Zollinger. Available on Amazon, along with our first book, The Sisters Grimmoire.)

United Visual Artists - Always / Never, London (2012)

Always/Never is the result of UVA’s recent investigations of the perception of time. Always/Never is a grid of pyramidal elements inspired by the sundial, each passing through time at a different rate. Changing patterns of light and shadow create the illusion of a fluid surface; shifting combinations of colours from nature recall different times of day.
