The Green Witch

Is the practice of nature-based and earth oriented witchcraft. Green witches usually practice a traditional form of witchcraft in which the earth, trees, herbs, plants and flowers are consulted for their medicinal and magical value. They will grow their own herbs or Wildcraft them, and are very good at making herbal remedies. Usually, the spirits of nature, the dead (that of humans and animals) or the Fey have a large part in Green traditions.

Witchcraft on a budget #3

Ok so I make salves and balms and I never have enough time to make herb infused oils. I just don’t have the time to wait 6 weeks to make salves. But thanks to my laziness, making infused oils just got a hell of a lot easier.

Herb infused oils: the easy way

If using fresh herbs, chop or crush them up. You can use a food processor or blender to break them down into a paste, if using a blender add a small amount of oil in with the herbs so you don’t break your blender.

If using dry herbs, grind them up with a mortar and pestle or a sealed bag and a hammer will work too.

After crushing your herbs, heat up some oil (careful not to burn the oil or yourself) if you are heating it up on the stove, a medium heat will work, you can also heat up the oil in the microwave (I don’t recommend it but you do you) just be safe.

Add crushed herbs to the oil and mix well.

Place in a jar with lid off or slightly open, if you place hot liquid in a sealed jar it can blow up so don’t do that.

Let sit overnight as it cools and infuses.

Strain next day and use as desired.

Have fun and stay safe xx
