Liquid Dirt

By sheer coincidence of me not wanting to waste anything I made a spray that smells just like potting soil/mulch! And I love it! It’s such a deep earthy scent and it’s great! Seriously I wish you guys could smell this! If you love the smell of dirt like me you will love this spray.

Originally posted by themovingboxes

I mostly use it for cleansing my room, namely my bed, (and just as a nice scent), but all the ingredients are also good for protection and healing so you can use it for that too. And its ultra simple, with only three ingredients, and pretty cheap!

Ingredents:

-peppermint tea*

- tea tree oil

- rose water**

*i let this steep until the water was cool so a really really long time because I was just going to use it for a spray also its not pickle juice I promise I just reuse pickle jars after cleaning them!

**this rose water was the water that was actually boiling my rose petals not the distilled water you can catch (hence the color), i just wanted to find a use for it aside from just adding it to my garden so I kept it.

Making:

-I just used a 16 oz spray bottle I have and filled it with about 2-3 oz of the rose water, filled up the rest with the peppermint tea, and added 4-5 drops of the tea tree oil. I eyeballed these but its about a 1:5 rose water to peppermint tea ratio with 1 drop tea tree for every 4 oz.

-Shake and spray! Seriously that’s it!

-Pair it with any sigils you have (I have a cleansing sigil on the bottom of my bottle) and any crystals(tho i cant recommend spraying the crystals or keeping them in the water, just next to, or a pendant wrapped around the bottle is recommended)

happy crafting!

Perfect (Stiles x Reader)


Lyrics:

Different inflection when you say my name
Kiss me, but your kiss don’t taste the same
Is it real or am I going out of my mind?
Curious ‘bout the company that you keep
‘Cause I hear you talking 'bout her in your sleep
And now you’ve got me talking 'bout her in mine

Ooh, and I bet, she has it all
Bet she’s beautiful like you, like you
And I bet she’s got that touch
Makes you fall in love, like you, like you

I can taste her lipstick and see her laying across your chest
I can feel the distance every time you remember her fingertips
Maybe I should be more like her
Maybe I should be more like her
I can taste her lipstick, it’s like I’m kissing her, too
Ay she’s perfect
Ay she’s perfect

                                   ♡                   ♡                      ♡

 I am laying down next to Stiles whom is asleep while I am trying to focus on the book in my hands.“So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you,” I read out loud, and smile a little. I stare at the boy next to me, and repeat the quote again, adding at the end, “I really love you.” That’s when I hear it , “Lydia,”Stiles mumbled and I felt my heart broke in million pieces right there.
“Lydia,” he repeated again.

I decided to ignore what just happened, maybe I was overreacting. “Yeah, i am overreacting,”I tell myself, “You are overreacting about what?,” Stiles says with a sleepy voice, “Ehh, about something i just read.” I answer rapidly. He looks at me with some doubt, but I am fast enough to change the topic. “Do you feel better?,” He nods and places his hand on my cheek ; “Thanks, thanks for staying with me.” I grin, and peck his lips.
“Well, it’s kinda late,” He says looking at his watch. “Yeah, I should head back home. Mom must be freaking out.” “Well, I am sorry for her but I won’t let you go at this hour. We already know how dangerous Beacon Hills is.” “Yeah, but you only had to say that you wanted me to stay,” I tell him. “I know how much you love stating the obvious.” Stiles says staring directly into my eyes. I laugh a little, he kisses me. Every time our lips touched, it felt as if time stopped.
“We should sleep,almost 2 in the morning,” I say and he nods and makes me cuddle up with him.
I didn’t realise until that moment how tired I really was, I had been so focused in the book. I closed my eyes, and muttered “Goodnight.” “Goodnight,” Stiles replied back.

I woke up to the sound of Stile’s alarm, I get up being careful enough to wake him up that’s when it happens again. “Ly-dia, Lydia…Don’t leave me,” He mumbles and this time I couldn’t let it pass.
“Stiles, wake up,” I shake him softly. He yawns a little, sits downs in the bed, and open his eyes then gives me that cheeky smile of his. “Good morning,” He says and tries to kiss me, but I stop him.
“Did you any interesting dream?,” I mention. He stares at me a bit confused but answers “Well, I did have a dream. Why?”
“You were sleep talking,” I try to choose my worlds wisely. “But…” I begin to say; he stops me mid sentence, “But what?.” “You mentioned Lydia’s name both times. You begged for her to not leave you…” My voice kinda breaks a little at the end. He sighs, noticing what is going on.
“In some way… I always knew it, I knew it. It’s not your fall at all. Blame it all on me, I was silly enough to fall for you. Everybody could see it, they used to say it was obvious. Still, I decided to cover the world with one finger,” I say, it was notorious how much each world was destroying me inside. “Every time you look at her, it’s with admiration with love. You love her, not me.”
“Y/N, let me…” Stiles begins to say ; “Stiles, there’s nothing to explain. I always knew. Lydia, she’s perfect. She’s beautiful, smart, almost every guy is after her. She, is some way, has the world at her feet. That’s the way it is, but I can’t hate her either. She’s my best friend, and I love her for being her too. I’m between the wall and the sword. Trapped,” I said almost in tears. “Let me talk!,” He said already exasperated.

-“Y/N, I won’t sugarcoat things for you. It’s true, I did have feelings for Lydia. I was crazy for her, all that is true. But do you know what else is true?.” I stay quiet waiting for him to say that he still was crazy in love for Lydia. “I met you, in the most unexpectedly way and I fell for you. I fell so hard, out there we can find so many girls that are ¨perfect’, but they are not you. I don’t want Lydia, I don’t ask for any of those ´perfect girl´. I only want my imperfectly perfect Y/N. Y/N, I love you. My heart belongs only to you,” Stiles tells me, tears were rolling down my face. Tears of joy, by the way he said I knew he meant it. “Lydia, is my friend. She’ll always be my friend, and I love my friends. But the way I love her, and the way I love you, it’s very different. Like I said, the only one to break my heart are you.” I lay my head in his chest, and he puts his arms around my body.
Stiles cups my face and kisses my forehead, then wipes the tears of my face. “I love you, Y/N.”
“Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure,” He quotes the book I was reading. “My heart is with you, you are my treasure.”

Crystal Charged Psychic Awareness Spray

I went to a class last night and we made our own smokeless incense sprays! I wanted something for psychic awareness because I have sensed that my 3rd eye is trying to open and I believe this spray will help as well as for any divination work.

What You Need:

Orange Essential Oil

Yarrow Essential Oil

Nutmeg Essential Oil

Vodka

Water

Cups

Moonstone Crystal Chip

Rutilated Quartz Crystal Chip

Clear Quartz Crystal Chip

4 Oz. Blue Glass Spray Bottle


How To Make:

- First pick your oils. In my case I chose Yarrow, Orange and Nutmeg for a few reasons. Firstly, I picked the oils based off of The Complete Book of Incense, Oils and Brews by Scott Cunningham. In the back he had a section where you can pick herbs and oils to infuse for a specific purpose. I chose these three out of the options because it smelled nice and it gave me a buzz.

- Next, get a little cup (as shown above) and fill it ½ with Vodka. (We used the brand Absolute Vodka but any will do. Make sure it isn’t flavored.)

- Then put in the oils. 30 Drops max should be enough for all three scents selected. In this instance, I put 5 drops Yarrow, 12 drops Nutmeg & 13 drops Orange.

- Test out the mix. Smell it and see if it resonates with you. Here add in a few more drops if needed. If not, you don’t have to.

- Then pinch the edge of the cup so that it creates an edge and pour the mixture into the bottle.

- Place your crystal chips into the bottle as well.

- Once everything is in the bottle, fill it to the bottom of where the cap will lie (in the first picture, it is filled to the bottom of the black cap). The reason for this is so that when you put your spray in, the bottle won’t overflow.

- Lastly, charge your bottle with your intent. I also infused reiki energy but that isn’t required.


How To Use:

Use this spray as you see fit. I will personally use this spray for any divination work, meditation and possible 3rd eye work.

Witch Tip: preserving flowers explained

So you’ve definitely heard of the easiest way to preserve whole flowers by just letting them sit there to dry out. But plenty of us have no idea how to do it correctly. It doesn’t sound so hard but somehow most of us just end up with brittle stems and no petals left. I can’t imagine submerging a flower in melted wax would keep its original shape and there’s no way I’m sticking a whole daisy in the microwave. So here’s the REAL way to preserve flowers (easily)
*You have to dry out your flowers BEFORE they start to wilt to preserve them in their most beautiful state. Do this by putting your cut flowers in an EMPTY, DRY vase or container until they’re crisp and dry as a bone. If you want to display the fresh flowers for more than a couple days, you may put them in water but at the first signs of withering petals, empty out the water, let the stems dry off, then hang your bouquet upside down to avoid drooping flower heads. A way to keep the flowers upright without hanging upside down is by spritzing them with hot, heavily salted water. When the water cools the salt with crystallize just a bit to add an extra crunchy layer to the petals. Bonus: to crystallize your flowers, spray them with a super-saturated solution of some hot water added to enough epsom salt so that not all the salt fully dissolves

This morning I made some amethyst infused lavender spray. It can be used as a sleepy spray that you spray on your pillow before bed or as a normal body spray.

Going to be testing it on my friends and family by giving it to them as Christmas presents (I’m determined to be super prepared this year)…if it is a success I shall consider selling it!

Made with organic lavender water (bought from amazon, will look into making my own though if I am going to sell it), lavender from my garden, a few drops of lavender essential oil and some amethyst beads.

KazuBisha Week Day 1- Red String of Fate

:3 I ship it


Kazuma plopped himself down on a bench below a blooming sakura tree. With a sigh, he crossed his arms and leaned back. They had gone for a trip to the lower realm for a little relaxation, and Kazuma had almost tricked himself into thinking that this was a date. That is, until he was brought back to reality by Veena leaving him stranded alone in the park.

All in all, it wasn’t such a bad place to be abandoned in. The colourful sakura trees lined a wide, gravel pathway, winding itself around the park. A large water fountain sprayed crystal clear water into the air, as a small group of children splashed and played at the edge of the silver structure.

Kazuma closed his eyes. Children, huh? He wondered what it sould feel like to have some. Maybe later on he and Veena could… The sound of chattering birds drifted to him from above, and Kazuma felt himself drifting off to sleep.

Suddenly, there was horrid screech and Kazuma sat up straight with a start. Looking around, he saw a family of birds flapping away angrily. He never thought he’d see the day when birds could look pissed off, but it seemed that he was mistaken.

Something red fell over his glasses, and Kazuma grabbed at it. It was a scarlet piece of string. The other end led above him, and he could feel it being slowly draped over his head by a person or persons unknown.

By the time the offender had managed to get a good three layers of yarn covering his skull like a small woollen hat, Kazuma looked up.

The string dripped onto his glasses, and Kazuma brushed it aside. He could now see Yato sitting on one of the lower branches, holding a ball of ruby string in one hand and using the other to slowly cover Kazuma’s head in twine.

Kazuma stared at him, and after a few more minutes Yato finally noticed him. As they made eye contact, Yato gave Kazuma a cheeky smile and continued with his ‘work’.

‘Yatogami!’

Kazuma turned quickly, but this only resulted in the string falling over his face. There was a series of screams and yells from above him, followed by the clinking of coins and sound of glass smashing. Kazuma brushed the string aside hurriedly, only to see Veena standing almost nose to nose with him.

‘Kazuma, are you all right?’ she asked in concern as Kazuma blushed furiously and scuttled away from her.

‘Uh y-yeah!’ Kazuma stuttered, pushing up his glasses and averting his gaze. 'So, um, where did you go?’

'To pick up some snacks,’ Veena answered, lifting up the bag of groceries in her hand. 'I told you, remember?’

'O-oh, yeah. Right.’ Kazuma laughed hurriedly.

He did remember Veena saying something before she disappeared, but he had been busy thinking about how this 'date’ might be a way to further their relationship and then maybe even- Kazuma coughed hurriedly.

He looked around for distractions, only to find his gaze falling right back on Veena as she sat herself down next to her. Kazuma felt his heart race, but it started beating in a completely different manner as he laid eyes on a defeated looking Yato lying a few feet away, blood splurting from his head, coins and pieces of glass littered around him.

Kazuma felt a slight tug on the string around his face, and realised that Yato was still holding his small yarn ball.

How depressing, Kazuma thought to himself. He’s so poor he doesn’t even want to let go of his yarn ball.

Without moving, the poor guy threw the ball over his head, right at Veena. Too startled to do anything, Kazuma did nothing but watch as the string trailed over Veena’s shoulder and the ball rolled to a stop between them on the bench. The pair stared at it, and Yato looked as smug as someone could look while face planted on the ground.

'What is this?’ Veena asked, picking up the red ball.

Kazuma looked at her, and realised that they were both wrapped in the cherry coloured strands. He felt his cheeks heat up again, and it might have been just his imagination, but Veena seemed to be going slightly pink as well.

Yato glanced over and, seeing that his work was done, started subtly scooting away.

'I ship it,’ he mumbled, smiling and displaying all of his broken teeth.
