  • Hufflepuff: Okay, when do you want me to wake you up?
  • Ravenclaw: Never.
  • Hufflepuff: We have the final for Charms tomorrow.
  • Ravenclaw: I know.
  • Hufflepuff: So, when should I wake you?
  • Ravenclaw: I asked Flitwick if I'd pass if I just didn't show up for the test, and he said I'd get an "A" in the class.
  • Hufflepuff: So, you're giving up your "O" in the class just so you don't have to get up tomorrow?
  • Ravenclaw: Yup.
New House Oil

So I have moved quite a bit in my life, all over in fact, and when I moved into new places I could feel the energy of everything before. Then when I started getting into my craft I developed a special oil that I like to burn once I have moved into a new place. So here you are dearies, I hope that you enjoy and bring in new light to your new homes! 

Ingredients: 
Mixing bowl 
Oil burner 
* Peppermint essential oil. “I clear away all past doings
Lavender essential oil. “because I now bring in new life of peace,” 
Rose essential oil. “love, hope, and happiness.” 
Rosemary essential oil. “I invite abundance to fill this new home.” 

Directions:

  1. Open the windows in your new home. 
  2. In your mixing bowl place one (1) drop of peppermint oil, two (2) drops of lavender oil, two (2) drops of rose oil, one (1) drop of rosemary oil.
  3. Mix the oils together, when/if you say “I clear away” stir the oil counter clockwise, when/if you say “I invite” stir the oil clockwise. 
  4.  Once you are finished, find the center of your home (for me it is the kitchen) and place your oil burner where it is safe and won’t fall over and won’t set off fire alarms or disturb anyone else. 
  5. Place the oil in the burner, you can say what you would like then let the oil burn. As it is going, clean your place. Dust, vacuum, and sweep. Personally I recommend sweeping everything out the doors to clear away. 

NOTE: If you cannot burn oils for whatever reasons here are a couple alternative ways you can do this same New House spell. 

  • You can make a sachet with the ingredients listed above in herb form and place in a white bag tied with a yellow string/ribbon. Mix the ingredients as you desire, tie it up, then hang up near your front door (inside or out, whatever your preference is) and then clean your place with the windows open. 
  • Make a powder with the ingredients listed above in herb form. With your mortar and pestle grind together your ingredients until finely ground. (NOTE: If you have pets, you might want them put in their cage for the duration of this process so they do not inhale the powder. Safety first for our fur babies.) When your finished, sprinkle the powder in your carpet and floors, while chanting or silent. Once your are done, sweep what you can out the door and vacuum the rest of the powder with the windows open.
  • Wherever the center of your home is, go to that place and say either out loud or in your head “I clear away all past doings because I now bring in new life of peace, love, hope, and happiness. I invite abundance to fill this new home.” or something along the lines. When you are finished, clean your house with the windows open. This method has no ingredients at all, just power of mind and power to clean, haha. 

* WARNING: Peppermint can be difficult for some people if they are sensitive to the strong, in your face oils. If you cannot use peppermint and wish to eliminate it, that’s fine. If you want to substitute, spearmint is more low-key or you can use lemon essential oil. Whether you use spearmint or lemon place one (1) drop of the oil.

If you cannot burn oils and are using alternative methods but still wish to not use peppermint (h) you can use spearmint (h) or a dash of lemon zest or you can just eliminate all together.

While burning make sure others who live with you won’t be irritated by the smell of peppermint, be mindful.

Be safe. Peppermint can irritating for some to touch if you have sensitive skin. If you are dealing with the herb wear gloves if needed.

One of my most favourite charming treehouses I`ve ever seen 

BUCKHEAD TREEHOUSE

Buckhead treehouse is a charming, almost fairy-tale cottage located in Atlanta, US state of Georgia. Nestled in the woods, this unique retreat is a real craft masterpiece. The neighborhood is a quiet, residential place where a man can relax in nature.
REPEATEDLY DESCRIBED AS BEING THE MOST RELAXING, ROMANTIC, DREAMY AND UNIQUE PLACE

1995 Third Year (Vacant Deathday Hall)

Slytherin Students // Astoria Greengrass, Archana Shetty, and Norman “Cheon” Stacey

“If Umbridge is banning clubs and refuses to teach real DADA techniques then we’ll just have to teach ourselves!”

“I just hope Daphne doesn’t find out"

“She’s not apart of the Inquisitorial Squad, are you scared Astoria?“

“I - I’m not afraid, its just that now she’s being annoying older sister, wanting to know what I’m doing every second.”

“Daphne has too much time on her hands.”

“What are you two doing, and where is my invite?”

“Cheon!?”

“Well we’re um-

“No explanation needed, let me join in on the fun!”

“So exciting, rebelling right under their noses. What exactly are we doing again?”

“You two remember first year, when the Ministry stationed Dementors at the school?”

“Who could forget, it was downright chilling”

I think we should - no we are going to learn the most powerful defensive charm.

The Patronus Charm!
