As dark as the winter, as black as her grim mask of death.
As cold as her sorrow, her ivory tears.
No corridors of life and beauty,
No bloodred sky, no colors left in this world.

It was the light’s end.

She’s a demon stalking her pray in forests camouflaged as a tree. She waits for young lost men to wander in her territory and when she finds any, she shifts into a beautiful, blind-eyed woman and lures her victims to her nest where she obviously eats their souls. Because she has none herself… because she’s ginger.

First of all, I love your blog. It's one of my favourite witchblrs! Secondly, do you have any advice about a witchy first aid kit of sorts? Like, stuff that's really useful to keep around :). Thank you!

Awww, thank you! (And I adore the word “witchblrs,” that’s just precious.)

I have a little witchy travel kit that lives in a cookie tin, and it’s kind of catered to my needs for on-the-go magics when I’m away from home. I’m hoping to upgrade to a small makeup case (as someone on here very wisely recommended) at some future date.

Here’s what’s in the tin:

  • Sticky notes and tape (for on-the-go spell packets)
  • Package of white birthday candles & lighter
  • Vial of Banishing Powder
  • Vial of Protection Powder
  • Vial of Persuasion Powder
  • Vial of All-Purpose Cursing Powder
  • Bottle of Dragon’s Blood Oil
  • Small cloth poppet
  • Bone needle & black and white threads
  • Takeaway packets of salt, pepper, and sugar
  • Plastic baglets of my go-to herbs: Sweet Basil, Green Sage, Rosemary, Bay Leaves, Lavender, Peppermint, Cayenne Pepper, Cinnamon, Ginger Root, Orange Peel, White Oak Bark, Angelica Root, Solomon’s Seal Root, Devil’s Shoestring, and Vervain

I sometimes throw in other things as I need them, and if I’m concerned about anything specific, I throw in my 3″ cauldron. And I always carry a sewing repair kit in my purse, so I have needles and scissors and other threads and such if I need them.

It sounds like a lot, but small amounts of things go a long way, and a bit of careful packing gets everything into the tin just fine.
