I cooked ramen for the first time today and the result was amaaazing 👌 easy to make and full of flavours. I used only fresh veggies to make it and one serving contains up to 22 grams of protein! 💪 My new favourite vegan meal to cook!
Yesterday for the Vernal Equinox I decided to do a spring cleansing spell. It involves the four directions and the four elements, each represented by a different colour and herb. The idea is to simultaneously make a spell jar and a cleansing powder to sprinkle around your living space in each of the four directions.
East, Air, Yellow
1. Two tablespoons baking soda (sodium bicorbanate) 2. One tablespoon salt 3. Ground dried lemon peel 4. Yellow glitter
Mix together the baking soda, salt, and lemon peel. Draw a sigil for Air/East on a piece of yellow paper. Light the candle and add your sigil. Layer over top of it a bit of your lemony cleansing powder and then yellow glitter. Then sprinkle the remaining cleansing powder around the east side of your living space saying: Spring air, may you please Cleanse my home with gentle breeze?
Insert the cork and drip some yellow wax on top. If you’re feeling extra fancy, sprinkle glitter on top of the cork while the wax is still melted.
Add the embroidery thread, and hang it on an east wall of your living space.
South, Fire, Pink
Now follow the exact same procedure a second time, but now everything is pink! Replace the lemon peel with cinnamon. As you sprinkle recite:
Flame of sun in equal part Grant this home a fresh new start.
North, Water, Blue
The herb for this is mint; I used peppermint essential oil (be careful; it’s strong!). As you sprinkle recite:
Vernal pool with new life teem Make this home now safe and clean.
Earth, West, Purple
For earth, I chose to empty a bag of Tazo’s Passion tea, which is primarily hibiscus. As you sprinkle recite: Blossoms awaken from dirt’s shy sleep! May all the year this cleansing keep.
Now thoroughly clean your living space (because, you know, there’s baking soda everywhere); It will smell amazing!
P.S. You can choose your own element/color/direction/herb correspondences. I realize the ones I used are not all “traditional.”
P.P.S. Be careful when sprinkling things around if you have free-roaming pets.
