Unconventional & Affordable Ingredients for Spells
Here is a list of unconventional and affordable ingredients that can be used in spells and witchcraft along with their correspondences; good for witches “in the woods” and witches on a budget. Many of these can be easily found for inexpensive prices or at home.
Acorns/Acorn Caps: security, abundance, longevity, good luck, youth and brings good health
Animal toys/stickers: relates to correspondences of that animal
Recycle bottles, jars and medicine bottles for jar/bottle magic
Reuse tea bags (though not too long after use) in bath magic
If you do wish to use herbs, it is cheaper to order them online in bulk rather than the supermarket. Trust me, supermarkets and grocery stores really over price most herbs. You can get triple the amount for 2 dollars less online
Make up and toiletries are great for glamours
Its fine to use kitchen knives if you can’t afford am athame
Look at the ingredients in food you eat to see what is in it and determine that food’s correspondences, quick and easy kitchen magic
Crayons, colored pencils, markers and pens are good for easy sigil and color magic
Binders are cheaper than blank books and make great grimoires
Let’s appreciate that Killian Jones, the Captain Hook, realized that he needed to talk to someone about how he was feeling. A man notorious for internalizing his pain and his emotional struggles. A man who, in the past, would much rather have drown his problems in the bottom of a rum barrel than have anybody share the burden. If this isn’t a sign of growth and emotional maturity, I don’t know what is honestly. It also shows that Killian encouraging Emma to talk to Archie wasn’t some hollow sign of support. He’s practicing what he preaches, holding himself to same expectation he held to Emma. It’s such a big step for him. This was such a huge moment for him on a personal level and it makes me so proud.
anyway when the girls graduate, nicky makes a video montage of a bunch of clips of the foxes doing things together with that song from Up over it
and it’s the cutest thing ever like. there’s a video of matt giving dan a piggyback ride through an airport corridor when their flight got delayed, and they got neil to carry allison so they could race. it ends up with the four of them crashing and nearly toppling to the ground.
and the time renee fell asleep during one of the movie nights, and allison and matt teamed up to see how much popcorn they could balance on her head before she woke up. the night after a game when they’re out to buy liquor, and dan and nicky have a shopping cart race.
there’s also neil and renee trying to figure out how to assemble an ikea bookshelf for neil’s dorm room from the beginning of the year, which is followed by a clip from a couple months later when nicky and matt were more than a little drunk and accidentally smashed it.
the wild grin on kevin’s face when he watches the trojans win a big game and the video from later that night where he’s merrily indulging in a pint of ice cream with dan. the time katelyn got aaron and nicky to do one of the shorter cheer routines. matt lying on the floor with neil, laughing at neil’s terrible attempts to play some video game.
but then it gets really bittersweet, with clips from their final game (they lost, but it was to the trojans, and that’s the best way to lose), and their final post-game dinner, their final group movie night. and it’s so sweet and precious and i’m emotional alright
