First Born

The witch completed the spell for the maiden, and they both smiled. The process had gone perfectly.

“Do I have to give you my first born?” the maiden asked, biting her lip. It hardly mattered, she had no plans for children.

“What? No. I hate that old legend, it was started by some politician or other as anti-witch propaganda.” The witch picked up the maiden’s sandwich and took a large bite. “You have to give me your first bite of your meal whenever I’m hungry.” She returned the sandwich.

The maiden eyed the bite mark, “I can eat the rest?”

The witch sipped the maiden’s soda pop, a small Moonlight Berry Blue Brew. “Yes, of course.”

“But when I eat the part you bit, isn’t that a bit liked we kissed?”

Their eyes met and a busy world went silent, grew calm and still.

Hi sweeties! A new jar for you today!

Trouble focusing and concentrating/channeling extra energy into positive, useful ways is not a new struggle in my household. This jar was a request, but also something I found to be useful for people in my own home, so it was a joy to make, filled with love!

Let’s start!

  • sea salt - for purification
  • caraway seeds - for mental power
  • lavender - for peace and protection
  • rosemary - for mental power
  • basil - to dispel confusion, fears and weakness

With each added ingredient, focus that intent and love into each of your layers. The magic is in you and your intent, so don’t be afraid to spend time on each layer! Once you are finished, you can cork up your bottle and speak your intent into the whole bottle, definitely spend time concentrating and focusing while doing this, as it is the purpose of the bottle, infuse it with these things!

While doing so, you can repeat to yourself–

“Peace will come,
focus will stay.
My energy will be used
in a productive way.”

After you are finished, you can seal up your bottle with wax, I have a tutorial for this here.

Feel free to tag me in your recreations! I love to see them!

You can also find my other bottles here.

I hope this was helpful! I’m open for questions if you have any!

xoxo.

Beltane Masterpost

Time for another masterpost. Beltane is upon us, which means Summer is almost here! Beltane falls opposite Samhain on the Wheel of the Year, and while Samhain is about celebrating and respecting death, Beltane is all about celebrating life!! Like Samhain, it’s believed that the veil between the worlds is at its’ thinnest at this time. During this time it’s customary to burn ceremonial fires, do magic relating to or leave offerings for faeries. If you’re not sure what to get up to on Beltane, here’s some ideas:

Candied Flower Petals for Beltane


Ingredients: 

  • Flower petals or blossoms, rinsed and dried
  • Water
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • Sugar

Combine a few drops of water with the egg white in a small bowl, and whisk them together. Hold the flower petal gently between two fingers and dip into the water mixture. Shake off excess water, and then sprinkle sugar on the petal. If your petals seem too soggy, use a paintbrush to brush the water mixture onto the petals instead.

As you complete each petal, place it on a sheet of wax paper to dry.

Drying time is anywhere from 12 hours to two days, depending on the humidity level in your home. If your flower petals aren’t drying fast enough for you, place them on a cookie sheet in the oven at 150 degrees for a few hours.

Store your flower petals in an airtight container until it’s time to use them. Use to decorate cakes and cookies, add to salads, or just to eat as a snack.

Some Edible Flower Ideas:

  • Calendula
  • Carnations
  • Chrysanthemums
  • Citrus Blossoms
  • Culinary Lavender
  • Dandelions 
  • Lilac
  • Peony
  • Roses

NOTE:

One very important thing that you need to remember is that not every flower is edible.

  • In fact, sampling some flowers can make you very, very sick.
  • You also should NEVER use pesticides or other chemicals on any part of any plant that produces blossoms you plan to eat.
  • Never harvest flowers growing by the roadside.
  • Identify the flower exactly and eat only edible flowers and edible parts of those flowers.
  • Always remember to use flowers sparingly in your recipes due to the digestive complications that can occur with a large consumption rate.

Concept: badass witches listening to gangster rap when they work or meditate instead of nature sounds and that use their phone screen as candle substitute, that draw sigils on their arms spontaneously and casually curse people on the streets to burn their tongue on their drinks when they’re shitty

Emotional Healing Spell

What You’ll Need: 

-Band-aid or gauze
-Red pen or marker 
-Incense in the most calming scent you can find
-Paper
-Envelope

To help yourself heal emotionally, first light your incense. One of my favorites is lavender. Take your paper and stick your band-aid on it, or if you have gauze, tape or place it on the paper. Using your red pen or marker, write this: 
“Let this band-aid seal my wounds, 
 Let this incense cleanse me,
 Let peace find me,
 Let grief leave me.” 

When you are done, fold the paper and stick it in the envelope. Put some ash from the incense in the envelope. Put a part of you (hair, eyelash, fingernail, ect.) into the envelope. Seal the envelope and put it under your pillow. Sleep with it under your pillow for one night. The next morning, set the envelope on fire in a safe place.
