Cleansing Spray

This is a super simple cleansing spray for those whose situations prevent them from burning herbs. I use this when I have to cleanse something too large that calls for an amount of smoke that’d set the smoke detectors off (it’s happened; its not fun). Here’s what you need:

  • Rosemary.
  • Sage (I use basic sage, not white sage, but you can use whatever).
  • A bay leaf.
  • Salt.
  • Good ‘ol H2O.

NOTE: the bay leaf is totally optional. I include it because I use bay leaves to help grant wishes. It adds a boost to the cleansing properties, and gives an oomph to the spellwork.

Directions

Put the water in a pot on the stove and toss in the salt, rosemary, sage, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, then reduce it to medium and let it simmer for a few minutes, so the oils seep out of the herbs. The wonderful scented steam will cleanse your kitchen in the process!

Once you’re satisfied (or until the water is a yellow-green color - yes, it will look like pee), take the pot off, pour the water into a safe container, and let it cool. Once it’s cool enough, bottle it up and you’re good to go! I always put some sprigs in my bottle just for the sake of it, too!

Best kitchen tip my Grandma ever taught me

I keep veggie peelings, cuttings, herb clippings and all other veggie compost in a freezer bag in your freezer for up to a month. At the end of every month I dump this bag into my crockpot, add 6-8 cups of water and cook on low for 6 hours. I drain out the veggies and herbs, and viola! You have like 8 cups of veggie broth.

I save things from veggies like: celery, garlic, onion, carrots, kale, squash, parsnips, peppers, etc. Basically any vegetable that would go into a soup, I save.

I also save bits of herbs that don’t make it into other recipes, or veggies about to go bad I have no other intention for. It’s an amazing way to cut back on costs and food waste. This stock can make enough soup to feed a whole family, or you can freeze it if you are only feeding yourself and thaw as needed.

You can customize with herbs and spices now, or when you go to make your soups. I like to at least toss in garlic, onions, a bay leaf, pepper and rosemary to the broth itself.

I havent bought soup broth in years, and I can make sure my broth is salt free or at least low salt!

It’s such a simple thing to do, and its noticable in your food budget.

The Domestic Garden Witch: Po-Ta-Toes

So maybe you’re a college witch with limited space and money, limited to the one window in your dorm. Or, maybe you’re a witch without extensive backyard space who wants to start up a magical garden. Perhaps you’re a kitchen witch who wants the freshest herbs right at her fingertips.

For many witches, having a garden seems to be a bit of a no-brainer. After all, plants and magic go hand-in-hand. Plus, when thinking of a witch, it’s hard not to think of a cottage in the woods with a little vegetable garden out front. Unfortunately for the majority of us, our cottage in the woods is a tiny flat, and our garden out front is a windowsill with limited space.

This is when it comes time to embrace your craftiness and bring your garden indoors! Not only does it place your garden in a convenient location, it also allows you to freshen the air, recycle what would otherwise harm the earth, and embrace your witchy green thumb!

Okay, so if you follow my blog, chances are that you’re wondering if this whole potato theme for today is because of St. Patrick’s. I promise, I’m not enforcing Irish stereotypes on purpose. I just really like potatoes, and when it comes to gardening, it’s a bit of a disservice to overlook this vegetable. After all, when we think about kitchen gardens or home gardens, we think of herbs or flowers, and not about the veggies we eat that live a rather subterranean existence. But potatoes - those lovely little brown lumps that we can get for a couple dollars per five pound bag in the supermarket - are not only inexpensive. They’re extremely hardy little plants that can be grown rather easily.

You don’t need much to get started with this project. First, you need “seed potatoes.” This is not hard to find. Simply take a few potatoes and allow them to grow a bit. They will sprout a few short little stalks from the eyes on the surface. Save these, and get potting mix and two medium to large plastic pots that can easily stack one inside the other.

Carefully cut a few panes out of the inner pot as in the picture above, then place the inner pot into the outer one. Fill the pot part way with soil, add your seed potatoes, and cover them with potting mix. Water as needed until the potato plants peek up out of the soil. Cover them again and repeat this process gradually until the pot is full.

In roughly three months, you’ll have potato plants that are ready to begin harvesting. Simply lift the inner pot up and pluck your potatoes as needed from the sides! Fresh potatoes, free!

Ideally, this method of potato cultivation can help feed a family of four for about a year. My family had used this method, and our family of five was able to stay fed for a year off of two of these planters (we like potatoes… and we eat them a lot…)

How Can I Witch This?

Potatoes are very useful in witchcraft, and you can find out some of their magickal uses in my Foodie Friday article about Seafood Gnocchi. As for growing them, many of those properties remain the same!

As with any gardening venture, add crystals to the soil to promote healthy and fruitful plants, draw sigils and symbols on the pottery or planters, and incorporate protection or fertility ingredients into the soil - such as eggshell or coffee grounds.

Outside of the useful culinary benefits of having a potato planter on your front porch, a garden such as this is useful for outdoor space cleansing in small spaces, and for inviting prosperity into your home or property since potatoes represent such comforts as full bellies and pockets.

Since a small number of potatoes can be used to produce a much larger quantity in this planting method, you could even turn them into a prosperity or slow growth money spell! Pour your intent into the seed potatoes when you plant them, and as they produce new crops, give them water and food as an offering in order to keep the spell fed! Some of the potatoes produced in this way can also be converted into offerings or used in spellwork, in addition to being used to cook with!

The possibilities are practically endless where potatoes are concerned! See what you can do with these nifty little spuds!

And may your harvests always be bountiful!

Blessed Be! )O(

Inexpensive Witch Items for your craft #1

This will be my first post on places to get inexpensive items for you!


DOLLAR TREE!!! I can not explain my love for this store to be honest. Now it may be an obvious store for budget friendly people but I know many people may not think about going there for items for your altar, spells, etc but it is my go to place for all of my items! I will list below all of my favorite items you can get from there! Also they always get in new items all the time so I go quite frequently to see what I can pick up! And of course everything is $1 so to be honest it can’t get any better than that!

SALTS: 2lb boxes of sea salt, regular table salt, and they will even sometimes have pink Himalayan sea salt! Do I even have to mention why this is useful? Well I will anyway! Salt is like the boss of protection and purification. Use it in baths, spells, throw it around the house to keep negative things out, use it when you cast circles, etc. Salt is the bomb I my opinion. And why not get a huge box of it for $1?

SPICES AND HERBS: they have amazing spices to be honest. (Not just to use for cooking which I do) but they have cinnamon, parsley, ground sage, Basil, oregano, ground cloves, All spice, Ginger, etc. You can use these in jar spells, dream sachets, cooking spells, etc. They are fantastic especially for beginner witches who don’t want to spend tons on dried herbs or can’t find them locally outside in the wild or like those who live in a big city far from lots of nature where it’s hard to grow them yourself… Or for those who don’t have as much of a green thumb!

CANDLES!!! : THIS is one of my favorite sections at the dollar tree. You can probably get a better deal for bulk tea light candles somewhere else like Walmart but the dollar tree has amazing tall pillar candles, Scented candles, cute jar candles, Mason jar candles which obviously you can re-use for spells or storage! They have candles in different colors as well! For those who don’t like much flame they have great battery operated candles as well!

GLASS CONTAINERS AND JARS: THEY HAVE SO MANY GLASS OPTIONS! I love finding glass bowls, jars, vases, cups, etc you name it. All can be used for your altar for decor, spell work, collecting water, mixing stuff in, and anything else your little witchy heart desires to use for a glass container!

FOOD ITEMS: *PLEASE be aware to look at expiration dates and read labels. In my experience I’ve had no negative ones as of yet and I’m very sensitive to food and such* I Love getting my baking soda, sugar for offerings or spell jars, candies for offerings, sweets for the fae, jelly (I love their preserves they are delicious! The strawberry and raspberry ones are a house staple), Crackers, unsweetened apple sauce (it’s fantastic), teas (LOVEEEE THE TEAS they have fruit teas, camomile tea, green tea, black tea, and more) these are fabulous to use in spell work or just to drink, and mainly anything a kitchen witch or just a witch in general wants to use for offerings. *I do not advise on getting any meat or dairy products for obvious reasons. Though their vegan spring rolls are my go-to and the dark chocolate covered banana slices are also amazing in the freezer section along with their frozen fruit and vegetables I always make sure to get the ones grown in the USA. * Fruit infuser tumbler cups! Need I say more?

CRAFT SUPPLIES: GLITTER, PENS, PENCILS, STICKERS, TAPE, FLORAL WIRE, FAKE FLOWERS, WREATH WIRE, FLORAL FOAM, WOODEN DOWELS, GLUE, ROCKS, SHELLS, SAND, YOU NAME IT ITS ALL THERE!!!! Anything you could possibly need for your journal, spell books, spells, etc. Everything is there!

BATH SUPPLIES: GLAMOUR, RESTORATING, AND SELF LOVE BATHS HELLO! they sell Epsom salt, good bubble baths, bath loofas, scrubs, soaps, anything your heart would want for a bath spell! I love getting my favorite brown sugar vanilla bath soap mix it with some Epsom salt and sea salt throw in some green or black tea and have myself a self love and clearing bath!

There are a lot more wonderful things that can be found at your local dollar tree! Those are all the top categories that came to my mind. Next blog post will be on online websites that have inexpensive things for my lovely witches out there! Sending blessings to you all!

"you dont need tools for witchcraft"

i know tons witches, espcially on tumblr, always say this but a lot of times it dosnt seem true. those same blogs posting about “not needing tools” (myself included) reblog photos of sparkiling crystals and decorated altars. in comparison, our own practice can seem inadequate. but remeber that witchcraft is an old practice, and while over centuries this practice has grown and changed, the basis of the craft is old as fuck. the mothers of our practice most likely didn’t have access to a houndred different crystals, the entire whole foods spice rack, and dozens of specialized tools. the mothers of our craft were creative and worked with what was locally available, not $30 organic vanilla beans flown in from mesoamerica (unless that just so happened to be where they lived). the mothers of our craft were nifty and clever, and knew how to make everything out of anything. so, while beautiful, shimmering, lovely items are always nice -and can make us /feel/ witchy- our witch moms founded this practice without them.

My Witchy Books:

1. Bujo 📅 📖- weekly schedule/task spreads with astrological events and sun/moons signs listed for each day
2. Commonplace Book 📝📓- for scraps, quotes, anything interesting i want to copy down. Used for drafting BOS spreads. The book i always carry with me!
3. Grimoire/BOS 🕯📔- more “permanent” than the Commonplace Book, an encyclopedia/almanac for my witchy references. Includes correspondences for moon phases, crystals, essential oils, etc, as well as info on the zodiac, sigils, spells, important holidays/dates, tarot meanings, runes.
4. Kitchen & Garden Book 🌿🍲- contains any info/lists/illustrations/instructions/tips pertaining to keeping a witchy garden and kitchen. Plant info & witchy recipes mostly.
5. Book of Mirrors 🔮🔎- where I log all my tarot readings & insights they bring, journal entries, spiritual thoughts & looking inward.
6. Budget Book 💳🗄 - not witchy per se, but it sits with the others on my shelf. I do a monthly budget breakdown where I look at my spending in different areas, and my income.
7. Art Notebook 🎨📒- where I take notes on articles I read about art related things, also often doubles as a sketchbook.

📚📜🗝📿🍵🌚🍁🕸👩🏽‍🌾👻

If anyone wants to see more about any of these books, I’m more than happy to share! I love all things relating to organization and notebooks (I’m a Cancer but I must have some Virgo in me somewhere 😉). It’s taken me awhile to come up with a system I like, for keeping all my notebooks–and it’s still a work in process!

31 Days of Simple Witchcraft Challenge

As we approach October, I thought we could attempt a fun new witchcraft project that anyone can do! 

Because there is so much emphasis on tools and aesthetics within the online witchcraft community, I thought it would be fun to do a challenge where we forego the use of tools and return to more simplistic craft. This kind of practice also allows for more focus on intent, intuition, and resourcefulness. The challenge will end on October 31st! Start posting now or wait till October 1st if you like.

So for the 30 day challenge here are the rules: 

  • You must tag your posts as #simplewitchcraftchallenge 
  • You cannot use store bought tools (this includes things like bowls, crystals, sachets, etc.)
  • There are two exceptions. One is that you can use store bought herbs since many witches do not have access to live growing herbs. Second, you can use store bought supplies for making your own tools such as wire, clay, pocket knives, string, etc. but keep it to a minimum. Think of this as survival craft. You only have a few things available to use.
  • All tools must be made by you, salvaged from discarded materials, or found in nature 
  • You must post a picture of your simple craft, and as an option, describe how it felt to forgo typical tools and what you learned about the craft in the process
  • You are encouraged to go out in nature as much as possible and describe your experiences/observations 
  • All types of the craft are welcome, whether you are modern or traditional. Polytheistic or secular. Therefore all methods of paganism and witchcraft are accepted, including offerings to deities and spirits, divination, dream work, elemental magic, astrology, herbalism, etc. If you have another path that focuses on folk practices and involves the use of tools, like ancestor veneration, you are certainly welcome to participate even if it is not directly associated with the witchcraft or pagan community.

This is a fun project that adds more creativity to the craft and puts more focus on what you do as a witch rather than what you have. I will be posting ideas of simple craft throughout the month of October as I reject the use of my own tools!

The Domestic Garden Witch: Souper Recycling Ideas!

So maybe you’re a college witch with limited space and money, limited to the one window in your dorm. Or, maybe you’re a witch without extensive backyard space who wants to start up a magical garden. Perhaps you’re a kitchen witch who wants the freshest herbs right at her fingertips.

For many witches, having a garden seems to be a bit of a no-brainer. After all, plants and magic go hand-in-hand. Plus, when thinking of a witch, it’s hard not to think of a cottage in the woods with a little vegetable garden out front. Unfortunately for the majority of us, our cottage in the woods is a tiny flat, and our garden out front is a windowsill with limited space.

This is when it comes time to embrace your craftiness and bring your garden indoors! Not only does it place your garden in a convenient location, it also allows you to freshen the air, recycle what would otherwise harm the earth, and embrace your witchy green thumb!

Soup and Coffee Tins? Perfect!

So spring break is over and students all over the country are hunkering down for another quarter (or semester) of frantic studying, testing, and praying for sleep while pulling all-nighters. However, what’s likely also on the minds of these students is the need to have access to fresh ingredients on a budget. Well, college witches, search no more!

Chances are that in packing up some food for your dorm, you’ve also managed to amass a sizeable collection of soup cans and coffee tins. Whether your diet is exclusively cold Spaghetti-O’s and coffee or if you’ve just never gotten rid of the can from your sick day chicken noodle soup, these tin cans are useful as seed starters, herb planters, and rustic decoration.

Like any container garden, the process is simple. Carefully puncture a few drainage holes at the bottom of the can, provide a layer of gravel, add soil and seedlings/seeds, and water. But the fun is in what you can do to make these little DIY planters have a bit of personality! For that, we jump straight to some witchy talk!

How Can I Witch This?

I know, this container seems fairly self-explanatory. Sigils, symbols, runes and whatnot painted or drawn on the can to promote health and whatever else the plant corresponds to, and crystals added to the soil for the same reason. But I wanted to take a step back and consider the container itself for a moment.

In previous Domestic Garden Witch articles, I’ve focused on what you can do with the containers rather than what the containers might link to in witchcraft. In this case, I would like to change that. Tin cans, while inexpensive, are produced today not from tin (usually), but from aluminum or steel. Depending upon what the can stores, it could also be tin-plate steel. Regardless, these metals have some influence in what you can do on a magical level.

First, tin is a wonderful metal with a bit of history in witchcraft. In many traditions, it is most strongly associated with healing, prosperity, and money spells. Consider growing plants such as basil or rosemary in containers made with tin, allowing the metal to correspond with the uses of these herbs in your spells.

Aluminum is inexpensive, fairly plentiful these days, and actually does have a use in modern witchcraft despite its lack of historical magical attributes. Today, it can most often be associated with thriftiness, reflection, malleability, and travel. If you’re looking to work spells which encourage financial responsibility, or introspective thought, consider using aluminum cans with the appropriate plants and crystals.

Man has used steel quite a bit throughout history, and while we tend to have a stronger bond with iron (iron having been one of the first metals we’ve worked with, after copper and bronze), steel does have a few magical properties that have survived. Like iron, steel is most strongly associated with protection (so much so that in a few practices where metals are significant considerations, it’s acceptable to use an athame of steel in place of iron). If your tin can is actually made of steel, as many coffee cans are, consider growing plants such as rosemary or tomatoes (as starters) whose properties resonate quite strongly with iron and steel.

Not sure what your container is made of? Check to see if it’s magnetic. If it sticks, chances are that it is made of steel or has a high content of iron. If not, then it is most likely aluminum. Ultimately, however, you’re going to want to work with your gut feelings. If you don’t feel that your container brings anything to the magic, then don’t incorporate it into the spell, opting instead to just make use of the thriftiness of the idea. If you have a steel can but feel that it works best for love spells, then by all means grow that lavender in it!

May all your harvests be bountiful!
Blessed Be! )O(

Uses for Oats

Botanical Name: Avena Sativa

Folk Name(s): Groats, Oatmeal, Joulaf

Planet: Venus

Element: Earth

Uses: Prosperity and Money Spells

  • Oatmeal has anti-inflammatory properties and is mild enough for most skin types. Can relieve symptoms of skin aging
  • Contains Saponins (a cleansing agent) that can be used as a mild soap. Actually it is a common ingredient in skin care products and is gentle enough for sensitive skin.
  • It is moisturizing, can be used to exfoliate, and can help treat acne, eczema, rosacea and rashes
  • Make a poultice out of oatmeal by soaking rolled oats in boiling water until soft. Apply this directly to skin to soothe irritated skin (ex: sunburn, chicken pox, eczema). Alternatively, you can place a muslin bag of rolled oats in a hot bath

Oat Flour

-Grind rolled oats in a food processor or with a mortar and pestle

Face Wash

-Mix 1 Tbs of oat flour with 2 Tbs of hot water. Use to gently exfoliate and moisturize the face, and neck. If you cannot make oat flour, just use regular rolled oats

Body Scrub

-1 part oat flour/rolled oats with 1 part carrier oil. 

Oat Milk

-Soak oats in water, strain the oats out. Use as a mild toner by gently rinsing face with oat milk

Overall, it is a good healing herb and is great for bath magic as well as beauty spells. I love using oatmeal once a week as a face and body scrub and to help draw money towards me. 

The Domestic Garden Witch: Not So Jarring Kitchen Herbs

So maybe you’re a college witch with limited space and money, limited to the one window in your dorm. Or, maybe you’re a witch without extensive backyard space who wants to start up a magical garden. Perhaps you’re a kitchen witch who wants the freshest herbs right at her fingertips.

For many witches, having a garden seems to be a bit of a no-brainer. After all, plants and magic go hand-in-hand. Plus, when thinking of a witch, it’s hard not to think of a cottage in the woods with a little vegetable garden out front. Unfortunately for the majority of us, our cottage in the woods is a tiny flat, and our garden out front is a windowsill with limited space.

This is when it comes time to embrace your craftiness and bring your garden indoors! Not only does it place your garden in a convenient location, it also allows you to freshen the air, recycle what would otherwise harm the earth, and embrace your witchy green thumb!

Apple Sauce, Jars, and Kitchen Herbs

Let’s face it. I work in an Italian kitchen, and much of the cooking I do at home is also influenced by Italian cuisine. As a result, I find myself constantly in need of herbs such as parsley, basil, rosemary, oregano, and thyme. While all of these plants are fairly easy to grow in various gardens, sometimes you need something inexpensive, easy, and within arm’s reach when cooking.

For this project, all you need is a few mason jars (if you don’t have any lying around, mason jars are very inexpensive and sold at most grocery stores in the canning aisle), some apple sauce snack cups (preferably consumed and cleaned), some wooden wicks (easily purchased online from companies such as the Candlewic Company), water, soil, seeds, and a box cutter or Xacto knife.

Make an incision in the center of the bottom of the apple cup long enough to fit the end of the wick. Insert the wick and fill the cup with soil and seeds. Remove the lid from the mason jar, discard the topper disc, and fill part way with water before resting the edge of the cup on the rim of the jar. Screw on the fastening ring, and voila! You have a very simple, very cheap herb garden to place in the windowsill. Since the wick passively draws water, the only time you’ll need to add water is when the jar runs out or when the water level isn’t high enough to be in contact with the wick.

Pro-tip: Be sure to trim the plants regularly - this is a garden meant to be harvested from regularly so that it doesn’t get too large. If needed, the roots can also be pruned and trimmed to help keep the plant small. If your plants begin to bud, pinch the buds off to encourage large, flavorful leaves.

How Can I Witch This?

When it comes to incorporating witchcraft into a simple garden like this, the possibilities are aplenty! Consider enchanting the water or using moon water in the jar, or if you’re into using crystals, place amethyst or clear quartz into the jars to help empower the water. Decorate the jars with sigils, runes, and symbols for growth, health, and prosperity!

The soil itself can be worked with, incorporating eggshell, ashes, or other magical substances that can help encourage the plants to grow healthy and large. You can also label the jars for their respective herbs and incorporate decorations on the label that correspond with the herbs you’re growing!

Consider different ways where you can incorporate magic into growing your herbs with this type of garden, and how it can help you with your kitchen witchery!

May your harvests always be bountiful!

Blessed Be! )O(

Dorm Cooking - The Tools

Before we can start talking recipes, we need to gather some basic equipment. Between Mr Hearth Witch and I we’ve lived in a few different dorms, and they can vary greatly as far as what’s available for cooking.

This series will assume no stove/oven and a simple bar fridge 

Crock Pot

This was one of my favorite kitchen items when I worked outside of the house. And I still use it a lot nowadays.

For me, to get the best out of a crockpot it needs a high/low/warm setting along with the timer. So often a recipe needs 4-5 hrs but you’re out of the house for longer than that… what do you do? Rather than risking burnt food, a timer changes the temp to warm after a set number of hours. Extraordinarily handy!

(you can even bake cakes and make yoghurt in a crock pot!)

Rice Cooker/Steamer

If you don’t have a stove, a rice cooker is an amazing tool. And one with a steamer basket is doubly so. Again, one with a timer is a lifesaver. Paired with a crockpot it’s so easy to have a full, healthy meal waiting at the end of a long day.

If I could have nothing else in a dorm, these two would be my go-tos. There are endless possibilities with the combination.

Toaster Oven

A full size oven is often not something a dorm room comes equipped with. And many folks would prefer a microwave to a toaster oven. However if you want to create healthy, homemade food, a toaster oven beats a microwave every time (in my opinion).

***

I’ve listed the items here in the order I would acquire them if I was starting from scratch. The crock pot has the most versatility, and the rice cooker expands on that greatly, with the toaster oven being a bit like the crown jewel of a stove-less cooking set up.

The Little Things

Mixing Bowl

Really, just a single, decent sized bowl should be more than enough. I personally prefer glass to plastic or stainless steel. Metal is reactive, so I just tend to avoid it. And plastic stains. 

Silicon Spatula

I much prefer silicon to rubber or anything. Stands up against heat a lot better, easier to clean, etc. And I prefer a spatula to a spoon if I’m trying to keep the amount of utensils to a minimum. Works mostly the same, plus works as a spatula too, lol.

Cutting Board

There is a LOT of debate about what makes the best cutting board. Personally I’m partial to a good solid wooden butcher’s block, but in a dorm, that might not be the most practical. I don’t tend to like glass because it dulls knife blades really quickly. Even if it is the easiest to clean, a dull knife is dangerous! Plastic is probably the most practical option (I know… I KNOW!).

Measuring Cups

Mostly I think everyone knows this one. It takes the place of all the measuring scoops, plus a spout for pouring liquid. Again, when trying to keep the extras to the minimum it’s super handy!

This one is possibly lesser known. But it can take the place of all the spoons. Plus it’s helpful when wanting smaller amounts of liquid.

Witch Tip #1

Candles can be pretty expensive, or maybe you don’t have the room for the big candles. You can always get a pack of birthday candles! There is different colors, and they are small and pocket size! Perfect for a closet witch and to put in your travel altar!

Also, some aren’t aloud to have candles due to fire or other problems, you can always get electric candles! They sell some at the dollar store, and they are great to use and work the same! The relight ones can fit right into your travel altar!

Now Hiring! Volunteer for the Witchcraft Community!

I run a fundraiser where I create witchcraft supply kits to donate to witches in need of tools.

I am looking for fellow witches interested in running the project with me. 

Working for this project is hard work. I can no longer keep up with both the demand and the funds needed. I am also going to college in January and I will need to have all the supplies for the kits cleared out by then.

What I need is a group of extraordinary individuals who are interested in taking over the project for me. 

I cannot promise payment. It would be from the goodness of your heart and your desire to help the community. 

If interested at all message me @quintessablessings. Submit your questions to me in a direct message, not an ask. 

Eligible Volunteers 

  • Preferred that you live in the US 
  • Able to receive mail 
  • Able to go to the post office often 
  • Able to purchase shipping supplies 
  • Able to advertise the project and gain donations 
  • Able to communicate well with donators and recipients 
  • Able to create application forms, waitlists, and inventory lists 
  • Able to purchase items with donation money such as herbs and boxes
  • You must have a general amount of space to store the items. I have several large plastic tubs. 
  • Must have available time to dedicate several hours a week to the project 
  • Preferred that you have some basic art/crafting skills to make deity figures, pendulums, athames, tarot cards, etc. 

I am looking for as many people as possible to create a group working for the cause. I will supervise the group and continue to help from a distance. This is very important. 

If you want the witchcraft donation kit project to continue you need to reblog this. 

You need to share this on social media. I cannot continue without help. 

If you are waiting for a kit on the second waitlist or you are waiting to be on a waitlist, you need to reblog this or I probably cannot help you!

I live in a tiny apartment with not a lot of sunlight, but I try to make do growing what I can.

This is my little window sill garden, I’m growing peppermint and the flower we were given for free when shopping one day, which is so exciting! Also I’m growing broccoli seed sprouts and I just started them two days ago and their just starting to grow!!
