These seeds which come from the cotton wood tree are fitting for its name. They are covered in a cottony substance which carries the seeds through the air. Often in areas of lots of cotton woods it can appear to be snowing in spring!
•Although they are horrendous for allergies, they are a great resource in witchcraft because they can be used in spells about growth and new beginnings like other seeds, but they can also represent purity because of it’s bright white color, and comfort because of its soft texture.
•They also can be associated with travel and the air element because they use the air to carry them across distances.
•They can be added to witch bottles or used as a filler for sachets! They can also be used to stuff poppets

Fun facts with Quinn!
(This is so I don’t have to repeat myself on a regular basis)
Everybody should have learnt this in secondary school/ high-school. As we all know all plants take in the the air we breath, removing the CO2 and releasing Oxygen. DURING THE NIGHT PLANTS STOP THIS PROCESS they only take in the air we breathe, this happens because they don’t have the necessary energy to complete photosynthesis. As you can see in the above post I have listed a few plants that can produce oxygen during the night. Please if you don’t believe me go and look for yourself it takes two seconds to look it up on the internet.
Also there are no links for this information because I am no longer in college I do not see the need to write a bibliography for a tumblr post if you really care that much about where the information is sourced go and look for it yourself.
Sorry for the shittyness but it is starting to grind my gears.
With all my love tumblr ~Quinn!
On my walk in the woods today I came across this beech tree and I almost cried.
It’s such a gorgeous old tree, with such a smooth and elegant bark. I don’t understand why anyone would carve their fucking name into it. First of all, it;’s bad for the tree - it’s the tree’s skin, and it can introduce infection and fungus into the flesh of the tree and give destructive insects a foothold.
It’s so beautiful, and I want to see it whole. Why the actual fuck would anyone find a beautiful tree like this and think, “Carving my name into it would look nice”? No. Fuck no.
So I think we should start a new superstition: Carving your name into a tree will incur loads of bad luck. Or, alternatively, the forest spirits will follow you around and torment you. Or earth witches will copy your name down and perform a mega-curse on you.
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.
