Rose self-love bath magick!

You will need;

  • Rose bath product(s) (I used a Lush bubble bar called ‘Rose Jam Bubbleroon’)
  • Rose petals (I used potpourri because it’s what I had to hand) – for self love
  • Lavender (Again, I used potpourri) – for calming, love and purification
  • Vanilla candles and tea lights – for sweet thoughts about oneself
  • Sea salt (I used the dead sea protection salt from this month’s witch casket - contained nettles and patchouli) – to dispel any negative thoughts and to protect oneself from doubt
  • Rose quartz (I used a necklace) – for unconditional love and compassion

Method;

  1. Run your bath using your rose bath products
  2. Throw in your rose petals and lavender, speaking the words;
    “Lavender and rose,
    For calming and love
    I draw my power
    From the moon above”

  3. Scatter your sea salt throughout the bath
  4. Light your candles
  5. CAREFULLY get into the bath
  6. Wash yourself with the warm water, feeling the warm energies flow into you
  7. I suggest some mindfulness or meditation at this point! There are a million and one posts about how to do that!
  8. When you’re finished with the bath, say these words before you get out:
    “I feel the magick and energy flow,
    With each incantation, I grow and grow
    And to finish my spell, on the candles, I blow”
    [blow out your candles]
  9. Empty the bath and save the petals for a charm bag to carry with you and continue feeling the effects!!

  2. Add the ring
  3. Close the bag and shake, channeling the physical energy into the spell
  4. Take the ring out of the bag and cleanse in moon water

BTS Reaction | the two of you on a lazy rainy day |

 Note: If you’re confused at the Yoongi part, don’t be. I’ll attach a link. My inner emo just came out and I couldn’t help using this particular song in my head. It would be great if you checked it out too, so you’ll see why exactly ‘you’ behave like that.

Seokjin

When you see Jin’s surprised delight as you hand him the mug of coffee you prepared on a whim, you’re glad that rumble of thunder woke you up before him. It wasn’t every day you could do something nice for him and surprise him while you were at it. You watch Jin take a sip with pride. After a moment, he smiles, sets the mug down on the bedside drawer, and pulls into his lap.

The soft rain pattered outside as he kissed you. You grin. “That good?“

He relaxed his arms around you and breathed out. “How much coffee did you make, ______? Did you make some for yourself, too?“

Strange answer to a simple question.

“Yeah, I did. But, I didn’t…taste it, yet.“ Your forehead scrunched up as you remember the smile he’d given you after he’d tasted the coffee, and you wondered if it was more of a grimace in truth. 

You dive for the coffee mug on the bedside drawer and take a sip before he can stop you. Jin winces as you cringe when you realize your prided (mostly on your part) coffee is salty as the Dead Sea. 

I salted your coffee!“ You wail as he eases the mug away from you and rubs sympathetic circles on your back. You wrap your arms around him in mortification, and he rocks you side to side, laughing, which embarrasses you even more. “I’ve ruined our rainy day!“

He pokes your side and kisses your ear, which is the only part of your skin his lips could reach considering the way you clung on to him. “Nobody’s ruined anything. We still have a whole day in front of us.“ His hand continued to stroke your back. “You can make me coffee all day.“

Suga

You sit up in bed as the sudden morning shower intensifies. “Yoongi, look it’s raining.“ 

He sighs and buries his head under a pillow. ”That’s great, ______”

You grinned and poked his leg with a toe. “I’m not letting you sleep in. You need your fun. You rarely do anything other than work.“

He stretched a little, reaching out for you blindly. “That’s not true. I do you sometimes.“

You pounced on him and grabbed his shoulders. “You think you’re very funny, don’t you?” You laugh as he protests when you begin to shake him.

“_____!“

“Get up, or else. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!“

He pouts and turns over, throwing you off him. You gasp in faked offence. “Alright. If that’s how you want to play it.“ You bite your lip in glee as you reach out for your phone, find the song you have in mind for Yoongi and press play at full volume.

You jump on the bed and begin jamming as the first few seconds of Dance Dance begin thumping out of the phone. You furiously air guitar the notes as Yoongi whines. ”______!”

Patrick starts singing in the background as you shake a finger at Yoongi. “I warned you, but you didn’t listen. Now you’ll have to bear the consequences. Oh–! I’M TWO QUARTERS AND A HEART DOWN–”

You screech the rest of the lyrics as you bounce on your knees, pretending to drum like Andy. Yoongi sinks into the bed in defeat and prepares to pull a pillow over his head. 

“Oh no. You don’t get to do that.“ You jump into his lap and pull him upright by his bare shoulders. 

DANCE, DANCE–“ You throw your head side to side in time with the music as you yell the chorus completely out of tune. Yoongi sighs and wraps his arms around your waist, quietly humming along to the melody in acceptance that his morning would be spent like this. 

And that’s the story of how Fall Out Boy greatly improved your quiet, rainy morning.

Hoseok

The two of you are in middle of an anime marathon when thunder rumbled outside. 

He looked at the gathering grey clouds through the window.“Oooh, that sounded so nice, ______. Don’t you want to dance to that? Boom, boom, boom.“ He pops an arm with each boom.

You grinned and kissed his cheek. “You’ve got dance on the brain, Hobi.“

“Yep.“ He pursed his lips. “Pretty much.

That’s when you notice them. Those two dimples just above the corners of his mouth. They look like subtle marks left by an artist, lines she forgot to erase and later decided to leave them when she saw how pretty they looked.“Hobi, look at those dimples! How could I not have noticed them before?!” 

You raise your hands and place one finger on each dimple. He feigned nonchalance at you fawning over them. “Maybe you should pay more attention to me.”

“If I pay you any more attention, Hobi, I’m gonna go broke.“

He laughed at your quip and threaded his fingers through yours. “Where did you get that joke from– Jin-hyung?”

“Why, Hobi, sometimes I can be funny too.“

“Of course you can, _______. Remind me to ask you for a help if I ever write a diss track.“

Namjoon

He’s working at his desk while you sit in armchair you dragged near the window next to him. He’s working hard on a new song, tapping out a beat similar to the patter of the raindrops on the window. You wonder if he’s doing it consciously. Then again, you wouldn’t stop him if he did write a song that sounded like rainfall. If any man could do it, it would be Namjoon.

Just you and him, you smiling at how hard and true he worked, and him, lost to the raindrops and the beautiful sounds they made.

Jimin

You smile as Jimin’s hands feather up your sides, signalling that he was finally awake.

“It’s raining.“ He murmurs in a sleepy voice, pulling you in closer. 

“Mm-hm.“

“What time is it?“

“It’s past morning. Eleven, I think.“

“Wow. It looks like it’s barely dawn.“ His voice changes from sleep-riddled to concerned in a matter of seconds. “If it’s eleven, you must be hungry.  ______, you should have wakened me up.“

You turn over and slide your arms around his chest. “I wasn’t hungry. Besides, you were tired from last night. I thought you’d want to sleep in.

He ruffles your hair and rests his chin on top of your head. “I did. I should go get you something to eat.“

You curl a hand around his bicep. “Not yet.”

V

You flip a page in the book you were reading. Tae doesn’t waste a moment and pulls your hand back to where it was before, back into his soft, fluffy hair. Music spilled from the dock on the bedside table. Tae’s head was in your lap, the rest of him carelessly sprawled on the bed. His eyes were closed, hands folded on your chest. You would have thought he was asleep, if not for when he occasionally hummed a note or moved his sculpted fingers to the melody.

He looked especially beautiful, messy hair and all, when he did that. The planes of his face held a sort of tranquillity when he heard a singer perfectly execute a smooth riff. Sometimes he would sigh and hum along. You would sit, mesmerised when you heard him sing like that. A small private performance just for you, one that the performer didn’t know you were listening to.

“What’s wrong?“ Tae’s husky voice broke through the soft music. You looked down at him and smiled, glad about the rain, glad about him. 

“Nothing’s wrong.“ You kissed him and he smiled up at you. “Everything’s perfect.“

Jungkook

“Of course, it has to rain right when we’re in the middle of jogging.“ Jungkook looked up in dismay at the big grey clouds already offering light drizzles. 

You place your hands on your knees and catch your breath, slightly glad for the respite from jogging with your athletic boyfriend. “I’m not sure the rain is aware of the benefits of daily jogging, Jungkook.“ You judge the intensity of the showers to be not too bad. “Maybe if we hurry we can avoid the downpour.“

You spoke too soon. Like the heavens themselves had opened, a torrent of rain began to fall, drenching the two of you.

“Maybe not.“ Jungkook poked the inside of his cheek with his tongue as he looked around for a place to hide. “It’s too early for any shops to be open.“

You look around, hunching your shoulders. There are a few ledges, but nothing around you seems exceedingly promising, except for a tree looking very out of place in midst of all the buildings. You exhale, knowing it was your only chance.

You pull Jungkook towards the tree. “Come on.” He clicks his tongue when he sees your solution, but he knows there’s no other choice. After the both of you duck under its hanging branches, he fusses around, pulling you this way and that to find a place you could stand where the canopy was the thickest. 

You snicker as you notice his hair. “You look like a drowned rat.” 

He grins as he sticks you in a place he deems comparatively drier. “Oh, like you every day, then.“

Oh ha ha, look at me everyone, I’m Jungkook, I’m so funny.“ He laughs at your fail at a baritone and immediately winces as an especially fat raindrop attacks his cheek. You pull him closer into your ‘drier’ spot. “You’ll get wet if you stand there.” 

He’s almost a head taller than you. He cocked his head.“I’m wet anyway.“ 

You lock your hands behind his neck and tease him. “Aren’t you always?“ He throws his head back and laughs.

“Good question.“ He leans down, and kisses you. It was always leading up to this anyway. Being in love with Jungkook through and through felt like being in a drama, and kissing under a tree while it rains in the background was only adding to the experience.

Unfortunately, being in a drama also meant unexpected twists. Your unexpected twist came in the form a poor schoolgirl probably looking for shelter on the way to early classes. 

“Sorry!“ She blushed head to toe, looking anywhere but at the two of you. “I– Sorry!“ She squeaked and ran away before you could speak.

Jungkook raised a hand to his hair, a slight blush spreading across his cheeks. “I think we’ve scarred that poor girl for life.“

How was it? I apologize for the sudden appearance of songs that are almost a decade old, but I couldn’t write that scene without Dance Dance by Fall Out Boy in my head. There will be no post tomorrow, because its FRIDAY, FRIDAY.(*insert Rebecca Black gif*). However, if you are a new reader, you can always try my earlier posts or, you know, hook me up with a follow.

Make sure to request, or I will quickly run out of ideas or motivation (which ever comes first). You are also welcome to tell me if you have other suggestions or even shower me with compliments. I will not mind.

Dear everyone who doesn’t have Psoriasis:

If you meet someone who has Psoriasis, do not, and I repeat, do NOT tell them that “dead sea salt” will cure it.

1. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder. It is a result of your own body attacking itself. That means THE DISEASE IS COMING FROM INSIDE THE HOUSE YOUR BODY, and rubbing something on the outside is not going to “fix” it. AT BEST, topical ointments will make it go away for several days, and that’s only if you keep slathering yourself in them EVERY DAY. Ooh, you missed a day? GUESS WHO’S BACK

2. Really? Really? You want me to rub salt on my dry, cracked and sometimes bloody skin? The skin that it sometimes hurts to put soap on? You want me to rub salt on that.

Sincerely,
Jaydee.

p.s.: “Stop scratching!” EAT A DICK.

Negative Influence Banishment Spell

So this is a spell for that one person who still has a hold over you and your life/emotions. Be it unrequited love, a bad ex or a bully who influences your emotions, this is a super simple, yet effective spell for banishing their influence over your life.

You will need;

✨ sea water - or cleansed water (you can find out how to cleanse water for spellwork HERE) with sea salt or protection salts (I used cleansed water with the Dead Sea Protection Salts from March’s @witchcasket) —- for banishment and protection so the spell continues to work after it is performed

✨ a black candle —- for banishment

✨ basil —- to ward off negative energies

✨ thyme —- for inner calm and balance

✨ a fire safe container 

✨ a black pen and a piece of paper

Method;

✨ Mix your ingredients together in the fire safe container - first the sea water, then the basil, then the thyme. Stir the potion with your intent.

✨ Write out the name of the person who has influence over you

✨ Light your black candle and use the lit candle to set alight the paper you have written the name on (BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO BURN YOURSELF)

✨ Drop the burning paper into your container

✨ Drip some of the black candle wax into your container 

✨ Blow out your candle and finish your spell with your preferred method - I say “so it is”

If you happen to use this spell, tag me in posts/photos!!

Happy witching ✨
