I made my first spell jar today to strengthen the love between my partner and I, we’ve been going through a lot of emotional turmoil from a lot of outside factors and I felt that a little extra magic could keep our love strong while we’re going through so much.

-Cumin- protection, Fidelity
-Bay- protection, healing, strength
-Basil- love, protection, soothes tempers between lovers
-Lavender- protection, love, peace, happiness

-Quartz (to enhance energies) and obsidian shards (guards from infidelity, strong shields against negativity, suppress aggressive energy, removes stress)
-A few drops of moon water to enhance the spell

I layered the ingredients in the order they’re listed, while stating intentions for each one. I drew the strongest sigil on the lid and after I took these pictures I sealed it with a white candle.
I hope someone else will find this helpful 😊

Hello~ thank you for your texts 💖 my ask is embarrassed Gom dorks when they did some silly things in front of their gf~
Embarrassed babies gives me life~ I feel like I messed up on Akashi’s so forgive me. Writing isn’t really doing its thing today…
Kuroko Tetsuya: Just like on the court Kuroko puts his misdirection to full use and suddenly he’s nowhere in sight. It’s only because you’re you (well, I sure hope you notice him) that you’re able to spot Tetsuya a little ways away from you, his usually oh-so-composed face unrecognizable. When you tease him about it, he does his beast to calm you down in his usual Kuroko-like manner, but you can’t take him seriously after witnessing yet another of your boyfriend’s mysterious expressions (the only way you’ll ever know more is if you question Aomine or Seirin).
Kise Ryōta: For once it’s your turn to tease him back and honestly, although Kise can dish it out, he can’t take it. At the moment Ryōta wants nothing more than to crawl into a hole and just live there for all eternity, being utterly, horribly mortified by whatever dignity-bashing act he had just committed. Holding in your giggles, you begin removing his hands from the blond’s extremely reddened cheeks, and although it’s difficult, you have to resist teasing him and attempt to quell his embarrassment with a quick peck to the lips.
Aomine Daiki: There’s nothing more enjoyable than an embarrassed Aomine Daiki. Maybe it’s because most of the time your roles are reversed, but in the moment you don’t have time to think about it because you’re too busy chasing after and teasing your incredibly flustered boyfriend. Daiki’s solution is to speed walk away from you (because he knows running will get him chewed out by both you and Momoi), face horribly red, doing his best to hold back his undeniable need to curse you out as you follow in hot pursuit, asking oh-so-innocently if he has a sunburn.
Midorima Shintarō: In all honesty, the only difference between this situation and your everyday life consisting of a flustered emerald haired boyfriend is the fact that (although it isn’t that rare) your Shintarō has done something excruciatingly embarrassing. His reaction is the usual blushing, stuttering, and eye adverting except tenfold. Even though it isn’t anything new to you, you can’t help but take the opportunity to tease your lover.
Mursakibara Atsuhi: Teasing Murasakibara is a rare opportunity, as even though Atsuhi sometimes does tend to do embarrassing actions, he rarely becomes uncomfortable about it. Seizing the opportunity fully, you begin teasing the much larger boy relentlessly until he snaps, biting back childishly that “[Name]chin is being mean!” and how’s going to “crush” you. You don’t take anything seriously until your lavender haired lover also revokes your snack privileges, which completely turns things around as you both begin bickering needlessly, teasing long forgotten.
Akashi Seijūrō: It’s a shock. There’s no other way to explain it. While Akashi is a normal human being, his exceedingly abnormal upbringing and rather out-worldly aura makes a situation like this difficult to believe. It isn’t the fact that your boyfriend had done such a thing that makes you laugh, but rather his reaction to it. Both surprisingly and unsurprisingly, Seijūrō isn’t embarrassed, in fact, his reaction is more that of curiosity. It’s like watching a small child discovering something for the first time, so pure and extremely adorable.
