A potion for new beginnings

Hello everyone! 💎🔮🌙
This is a moment of big changes in my life, both practically and spiritually. I decided to celebrate the new beginnings in my life with a potion that promotes changes, evolution and self-love. Tonight is also this month’s new moon, so this is really the best time to prepare this potion. 

Ingredients 🌸

  • Green tea for energy and cleansing
  • Dried rosebuds for new beginnings
  • Dried jasmine flowers for a clear vision of the future
  • Blackberries for protection and healing 
  • Maple syrup (or sweetener of choice) for self-love and self-indulgence

Recipe 🔮

Bring a pot of water to a boil, then turn off the heat and add the green tea leaves, rosebuds and jasmine. Let the herbs infuse for 5 minutes. Filter the herbs and add the berries while the tea is still hot, smash them with a fork and let them sit in the tea for about 10 minutes. Filter the potion, add the sweetener (to taste) and pour it in a bottle. You can refrigerate the potion or drink it warm. I also put a sigil on the bottle to reinforce the power of the potion, and i decorated it with rose quartz beads. 

May the new moon light your way!

Buster Poultice Recipe

A strong concoction used to break hexes, spells and curses. Perfect even if you’re uncertain you’ve been hit by black magic.

Black pepper, rock salt, thyme, frankincense, charcoal, eucalyptus oil, ginger ale, lime juice, bay leaves

1. Swab your mortar and pestle with eucalyptus oil to safeguard and avoid jinxing while focusing on the intention of busting up that bad shit.

2. Course grind all solid ingredients one by one and put them in a jar.

3. Add eucalyptus oil and lime juice, just enough to moisten the mixture.

4. Shake well.

5. The result should be a course yet soft mixture that resembles dirt.

Add this to your bath with a bottle of ginger ale and soak well. Or scrub yourself with it in the shower and rinse yourself off with the ginger ale.

I remove all hexes, curses and spells that may have been placed upon me, for I am no mans rabbit or sheep.

This wont go down your drain very well so be mindful to pick up any large granules and dispose of them as you wish.


🌱🍓 Happy Summer Tisane 🍓🌱

- Green Tea for a conscious mind, magic energy, love

- Fresh Strawberries for passion, sweetness, carefree joy

- Lavender for calm (to avoid the happiness being ‘manic’ as mine often is)

- Basil for prosperity, happiness, peace

- Raw Honey for sweetness, to preserve the longevity of the spell

Mash your strawberries, I used a mortar and pestle, while focusing on your intention. Then combine your ingredients and pour over your boiling water, envisioning pouring your intent into the teapot, and steep, covered, for about 3 minutes. After steeping, pour through a strainer, envisioning straining out any negativity, and enjoy while doing something you love! 

Personally, I’m crocheting and watching adventure time!

Cold Banishing Potion

This is my go to “Cold Banishing” potion - used in soups or marinades or dressings

*Garlic - 1 large clove garlic or 1 tablespoon minced garlic or 1 tsp garlic powder - to cleanse and banish the sickness
* Ginger - 1 tsp ground ginger, 1 thumb sized piece of fresh ginger grated - to speed up and power the magical working, for healing as well
* Vinegar - any on hand, I use Citrus Rice Wine Vinegar a lot - cleansing
* Sesame oil - to taste - for the “prosperity” of the spell, a little insurance so the spell works
* Salt or Soy Sauce - to taste - cleansing/protection from reinfection
* Hot spice of some sort - chili oil, chili powder, cayenne pepper, etc to cleanse and protect with the property of fire, to “burn out the sickness”

I use this combo regularly in my Cold Banishing Soup. I recently used it in a marinade for meat as well!

Use this as a sauce, flavoring or marinade for the rest of your meal. I like to add this to soup with lots of veggies, so that I get lots of vitamins as well to help fight off the sickness. Also, adding this to chicken broth includes the “healing chicken soup” vibe as well, that we use so much for colds and flus! Don’t forget your noodles and meat. A well balanced meal helps heal tremendously and gets you the nutrients you need to heal, as well!

Happy Cooking!

hello! i've been trying to research magic, but unfortunately most books i find are specific wicca, which i'm not interested in. do you have any book reccomendations that arent wicca centric? thank you! i love your blog :^)

Oh heckin yes I do My amazon wishlist is literally like six pages long… ALL BOOKS

WARNING: This Is Going To Be Extremely Long!

First though I want to note that while I 100% understand your feelings about the Wicca stuff (being a very NOT Wiccan Witch), not all books that are Wicca leaning are bad! I’ve gotten loads of useful information from books that tended to be a little new agey. That’s where being objective comes in! With ANY book, you should take it with a grain of salt, and some with a whole shaker. But it’s up to you to pay attention to misinformation and conflation, and to know how to do research to prove or disprove that something in a book you read is true or not. Does that make sense?? 

Anywho, a couple of books that are still kind of “Wicca-y” but great:

Those are all books from my personal collection that I would recommend! Now as for the Non-Wicca Books, Let’s dive in! Not all of these have I read or owned, and they are in no particular order. You’ll notice most of them relate to “Traditional Witchcraft” or West Country, because that is where my practice is focused. 


That was a lot! Okay anon I hope this gives you a good starting place!

Ganbare: A potion

頑張れ (Ganbare )

Japanese: “To stubbornly persevere”

A command to ”stick with it” or to try harder.

For the days when you feel so tired you can barely get out of bed.

Choose your base:

  • Vodka: Strength and courage
  • Carbonated spring water: Refreshment
  • Coffee: Vigor and mental clarity

Add herbs:

  • Ginger: Energy, power
  • Cinnamon: Health, vigor
  • Rosemary: Courage, mental clarity

Choose your charging method:

  • A sigil: Charged in a way that symbolizes ”ganbare” to you, like the heat of a coffee pan
  • A prayer: E.g. to a deity of courage like Týr, Vishnu, Amechania, or Hersilia
  • A crystal: Agate (inner strength), red amethyst (courage, tenacity), hematite (clarity of thought, stress control)

For spoonie witches:

  • If you are on medication, consider adding today’s dose of it to the potion or taking it along with it.
  • If you go with the vodka base, check if your meds are safe to take with alcohol!

Wine is an excellent potion base for fertility, prosperity, money and mental strength! If you’re underage or don’t want to consume alcohol, a mulled wine potion is great as a lot of the alcohol evaporates if you boil it for a long time.

My favorite Prosperity and Healing Mulled Wine potion is perfect for when you’re feeling a bit sick or under the weather, as well as being festive and cheery.

You can substitute any of the ingredients or add more according to your intent, but this recipe is a good base and super easy to make.


✨In a pot on the stove, pour your red or white wine and bring to a simmer.

✨slice the lemon and orange and add 3-6 slices of each

✨as the potion comes to a boil add the other herbs and spices, visualizing your intent, stirring often.

✨let it simmer, but not boil, until the air becomes fragrant and you can see the citrus infusing. Anything from 10-20 minutes is perfect.

✨your kitchen should have a lovely festive smell now!

✨lastly, add 1-3 tablespoons of brown sugar according to taste, stir to dissolve and remove from the stove.

Strain and Serve hot garnished with more orange and lemon!

Lullaby Tea

~a gentle, soothing sleep potion~


  • violet leaves and/or flowers - for peace
  • catnip - for sleep
  • vanilla extract - for love
  • honey - for gentle sweetness
  • milk - for soothing

Place in the teacup or mug of your choice a portion of of each herb, either fresh or dried. Amounts are up to your own judgement/preference (see note below). Pour freshly boiled water over the herbs, leaving a little room at the top. Allow them to steep for at least 5 minutes. Strain out the plant bits (or, if you’re lazy like me, you can leave them and then just pick them out as you go… or eat them, your choice). Add a drop of vanilla extract, then honey and milk to taste. 

Sip, relax, and enjoy~

(Note: Remember, when working with unfamiliar herbs, please be cautious of any potential allergy you may have, especially if you are prone to floral or plant allergies. Also, start out with just a little bit of the herb if you don’t know yet how strongly it will affect you. Always better to be cautions.)

Day 2: Experimentation

Here’s day 2 of egotober with lil Ravenclaw Jack mixing some potions in potions class with a recipe by Stan Petiec??
I wonder who it could be??
Who knows 👀👀
Anyway hope you enjoy

Fire and Ice- A Potion for Balance

This potion/oil utilizes the opposing forces of solar and lunar energies, fire and water, hot and cold. It can be used to bring balance to your emotions, a situation, your life… lots of things. 

I like to keep it simple so it can be customized/ edited for different purposes or tastes.

  • Use fractionated coconut oil as the base, and add equal drops of cinnamon oil and peppermint/ spearmint oil. 
  • Go for about a 1:20 ratio of essential oil to base oil. 
  • Charge the oil (not in direct sunlight) when the sun and moon are both in the sky.
  • This can be applied like a perfume. Be careful if you have sensitive skin.

While the oil itself is not for consumption, this same basic concept can also be made into a tea for the same purpose! 

  • Use equal parts cinnamon bark chips and mint leaves.
  • Put them in a jar and fill it with water.
  • Brew this tea by putting the jar outside when the sun and the moon are both in the sky.
  • Since this method of tea-making involves a lot less heat than the usual way, it needs to sit in the sun for a long time. I usually leave it outside for a few hours.

If you want, you can also add astrological symbols for the sun and moon, or a sigil for balance to the bottles of either of the above potions.


Language headcanons 

Charlie is terrible with languages - he’d tried to pick up several over the years, especially when he lived in Eastern Europe, but to no avail. 

WSL - Wizarding Sign Language - was adapted as a more reserved form of regular BSL by a deaf Ravenclaw who kept triggering accidental magic with the excited movements of her hands. 

Sybil Trelawney was born speaking Ancient Greek. No one knows why. It was hardly the thing that scared her parents the most.

Ron has an unexpected knack for languages, and after the Parseltounge incident during the Battle of Hogwarts, Hermione encourages him to explore it. He picks up French and German without a hitch (although he can’t spell for shit in either), and learned Giant Language on a whim to make Ginny laugh. All three come in handy as an Auror. 

Fleur takes great pride in being bilingual. She thinks about her history in French and her future in English. 

Snape writes up all his formal calculations, experiments, and new Potions recipes in Latin. It narrows down the amount of people who can read it, and comes in useful to recite in his head while practicing Occulemency. 

Hermione kept up her study of Ancient Runes after leaving Hogwarts - partly because she loved the way it made everything simple and clean, just tracing the power words hold, and partly because it made her indispensable at the Ministry. Most of the best Runologists of the generation had taken a side during the war that made them no longer welcome in polite company. 

🍀 Felix Felicis inspired Luck Potion 🍀

Requested by Anonymous, this potion is inspired by J.K.Rowling’s ‘Felix Felicis’ and is designed to guide you into lucky situations when you need it the most.


  • Hot Water (you don’t need a lot. I usually only fill half of the cup I will be drinking from)
  • A Bowl or Container (to steep the ingredients in. I used a glass measuring cup with a spout so I could pour easily)
  • Spoon or Stirrer 
  • Cup 
  • 2 tbsp Chamomile (chamomile tea works just fine if you don’t have loose chamomile)
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon 
  • 2 tbsp Honey (extra points if it’s clover honey)
  • 4 or 5 Clover Flowers
  • A Handful of Three-Leaf Clovers (or four-leaf, if you have them…)
  • (Pentacle is not necessary, but I like to use mine ^_^)


✨  First, arrange the clovers in a circle, going clockwise.

✨  Place the clover flowers at five points, or at the four cardinal directions (whichever you prefer)

✨  Add the hot water to the bowl and place in the center of the clover circle

✨  Add the chamomile and allow to steep for one minute 

✨  Add the cinnamon and honey

✨  Once all of your ingredients are in, close your eyes and visualize a light flowing in from the tips of the flowers, into the circle, and swirling around the bowl. Do this for about 2 or 3 minutes, allowing the ingredients to steep.

✨  Still visualizing, open your eyes and begin to stir your ingredients in a clockwise motion. As you stir, the light in the circle flows into the bowl.

✨  Once all of the light has been stirred in, take the bowl out of the clover circle and strain (this may only be necessary if you are using loose chamomile. If you are using a tea bag, just remove it)

✨  Pour into your cup and drink while warm.

Effects are strongest in the first 12 hours after consumption! Enjoy!

(ALSO, if you make this, I’d love to hear your opinions! This is the first potion I’ve designed myself! Thx 💜)
