Note! Unlike the others, these ones are NOT edible nor should they be ingested! These potions are for anointing or bath magic.
None of these potions are made with the crystals in the water! I ALWAYS put my crystals around a jar or cup of water to charge over night. SOME OF THESE CRYSTALS SHOULD NEVER GO IN WATER!!! So please just place them around your jar of water over night, not in it.
City Witch Tips for all of my fellow witches stuck in apartments, dorms or other city areas.
If you can’t burn incense you can make your own sprayable incense by mixing alcohol (usually vodka or rubbing) with essential oils and a bit of oil, spray in the air to act like incense
If you are unable to go outside for whatever reason to get rain water (in my case just no where to collect it safely), fill a jar or glass with regular water and keep it near a cracked window to charge it with the wind, sound and scent of the rain outside. Same goes for storm water
Trapped in city and unable to get ocean water? Sea salt mixed with rain/storm water can be an excellent substitute
To continue on with water substitutes, if you can’t collect snow crushed ice from your fridge will suffice
Low key warding/protection you can use: spray moon water, salt water or sprayable incense about your apartment or dorm, place sigils under doormats, furniture, inside cupboards, etc; place crystals about hidden or out in the open, sweep and dust out the door or towards windows
If you need melted wax to seal a jar or for any other magical purpose, but can’t burn candles, by a wax melter and melt that wax and imagine the light from the burner acting like a flame (plus they are rather cheap, I got mine for 25 bucks)
Need stars in your craft but too much light pollution? Glow in the dark stars on your ceiling or wall can work just as well for visualization. Print out pictures of your favorite constellations or planets and place them up on your walls or on your altar. Live video feed of the night sky can also be easily found on the internet
Bath magic is amazing for low-key ‘in the woods’ witches. Use teas, milk, oils, herbs, bath bombs, bubble baths, salts, etc that relate to your intent. It is also a good place to meditate if you have roommates or family around that would disturb you otherwise
If you do for whatever reason need to burn a candle, birthday candles are small, melt fast, and don’t create a lot of smoke or smokey scent
Sigils are another great low-key form of magic. To boost them up, use color magic related to the color you draw them in, write them using quills made of feathers related to your intent, use colored paper, rub a drop of essential oil on them, charge them with crystals or in your windowsill
You don’t have to burn sigils to activate them, which is hardly an option when you are in a dorm or apartment. Other options are: Shredding them, erasing them, soaking them in a bath or shower, using body heat or your own pulse, etc
Miss having the outdoors and plants around? Windowsill gardens can really help. Small plants you can consider keeping in your windowsill or counter-tops: succulents, cacti, bamboo, lemongrass, basic, rosemary, mint, rosemary, mosses, aloe, snake plant, pothos (and other vines), carrots, beets, shallots, lettuce, spinach, garlic, chives, parsley, oregano, thyme, and marigold
Open your window to let the wind and air from outside to help energize you and clear out negative energies inside
Fun places to put sigils: under furniture, carved into soap, onto shampoo/conditioner bottles, on your make up, inside phone cases, in shoes, under bandages, sewn into pillow cases and blankets, behind pictures in frames, underside of nail polish, carved into wax squares for your wax melter, keys and keychains, behind mirrors or in medicine cabinets, on bookmarks, on or in binders and pencil cases, on medicine bottles, and water bottles/travel mugs
Easy to make and dispose of poppets: carrot sticks (one of my personal favorites), apples or other fruit, clothe, paper, popsicle sticks, paper towels/napkins, toilet paper rolls, eggs, celery stocks, and cotton balls
The internet is an amazing thing. Need some sounds to help you focus or meditate? Easily look up the sounds of rain, storms, wind, ocean waves, jungles, forests, etc
Christmas lights are fun and great way to use discrete witchcraft. Select ones in the colors you wish for them to bring ie green for growth, yellow for inspiration, white for protection, purple for psychic abilities, etc.
Some everyday things you can use for discrete witchcraft that don’t cost much at all or that you most likely already have: water, table salt, black pepper, paper, crayons/pencils/pens/markers, vinegar, milk, tea, highlighters, make up and beauty supplies, shampoo and conditioner, rubber bands, paperclips, thumbtacks, computer/phone/tablet, music/music player, playing cards, dice, air freshener, perfumes, toothpaste, rice, flour, sugar, honey, and all kitchen herbs and seasonings.
Can’t afford gemstones or crystals on college budget? Crackle and dyed quartz you can find super cheap at craftstores and online. I bought a whole bag for 4 bucks. Use them based on their colors and shapes. Can’t afford that but still want to use rocks in your craft? Find some rocks you like outside, again use their colors and shapes to determine their correspondences. Want to use them for a specific purpose? Paint sigils on them in the color that corresponds with what you want! Charge them in your windowsill or with your own energy and intent. There you go!
Pocket mirrors are cheap, easy to carry around and great for glamours and on the go magic.
Seriously though, glamour spells are going to be a good option for you. use your make up, skin products, hair care products, brushes/combs, perfume, mirrors, toothbrush/toothepaste and intent. Good to do while you are getting ready for your day
Dream magic is another friend of the city witch! Use crystals, sigils, herbs, etc near your bed before you go to sleep, drink some chamomile, get yourself a dream journal (mine is literally a notebook with construction paper on it), keep it and a pen near you. In the morning write down your dreams, your thoughts, how you feel (tired, refreshed, groggy, etc), and interpret them.
Can’t afford tarot cards? Print out some, you can usually find them online and they won’t last as long as a real deck but it is a good temporary solution. Want a Ouija board but can’t keep one or need it to be easily hidden? Print one out, draw on one on paper or cardboard, fold it up and store it once you are done. Want a pendulum but can’t afford one? Use your favorite necklace, bracelet or keychain!
Tea and coffee magic is great, make your own tea blends with the herbs you like. Or just buy simple green or black tea and add sugar, milk, etc depending on your intentions
As I said before, crock pot magic. The Modern Cauldron: brew and cook all day with it, fill your apartment with the scent of the herbs and food to fill it with the energies they correspond with and you get a delicious meal to come home to! Most dorms allow them. Rice cookers also work well.
Can’t afford fresh food? Have to survive on ramen, canned soup, and microwaved meals? That is okay! They even correspond with things! Tomato soup for love, beauty and passion. Beef ramen noodles for strength, courage and longevity. Microwave mac n cheese for beauty and feminity. Look at their ingredients and what they correspond with. Sure its not as glamorous as a making a huge made by scratch traditional meal but its kitchen magic none the less. Stir it with your intent while you cook. It isn’t fancy but it works just as well!
Use a notebook or binder for a nice grimoire, decorate it as much as you want on the inside. Print out pictures of nature, animals, planets, stars, places, crystals, etc that you cant’ access/afford and use them in your craft. Spell books and grimoires are powerful tools
Don’t have a wand? Use a wooden spoon. Tie a colored string or ribbon to it to correspond with what energy you want it to have and move and flick it as you would a wand.
Knitting, crocheting, and knot magic is very apartment friendly. As well as sewing and embroidering plus it is super calming.
Glitter, sequins, and beads are great in witchcraft! Use their colors to determine their correspondences. Put them in spell jars, sachets, bottles, etc. Glitter tip: if you spill any don’t fret, get some packing tape, wrap it around your hand with the sticky part outwards and dab at that glitter spill. You will literally pick up all of the glitter in seconds!
Enchant and charge your pots, pans, skillets, and other cookware to make every meal magical
Make moonwater in your windowsills. Use it for cleansing, beauty, divination, clarity, protection and purification
Take walks. Even if it is a city there is still nature about. Pigeons flying about, potted flowers outside of stores, grass growing in front lawns, etc. Enjoy yourself, even if it is not some wild, vast forest you can still connect with your local nature.
Pick up litter or garbage you see outside, being in the city we all see it. The natural world around you will appreciate you helping out. Bring a bag with you when you take your walks or travel and fill it with wrappers you see on the ground.
I hope this was helpful to all of my fellow city and dorm witches!
Every now and then, magic can fade. In order to keep it strong and healthy, you have to exercise it. Of course there will always be times when something else is more important than your craft, but there is always a little something you can do to keep it going.
-Whisper an incantation over your lil’ cup of tea.
-Pray to your deities as you fall asleep at night.
-Carry a tiny crystal in your pocket.
-Scribble a quick happiness sigil on your arm before school or work.
-Give your pets some treats you have bewitched.
-Recite affirmations when you get ready to go somewhere in the mirror.
-Light a stick of incense while you’re cleaning or just sitting around.
-Add little thoughts to your grimoire.
-Sleep with your tarot cards.
-Play some witchy music.
-Set out a couple jars to collect rain water.
-Cleanse your home while cleaning.
-Set aside at least one day a month to devote entirely to your craft.
Hope all of you guys enjoyed and if you’d like more ideas then feel free to request! In the meantime, have fun and happy bewitching!
I’m not kidding people die of dehydration more than anything else I’m talking 2 liters minimum.
first-aid and survival kit including after-bite, splint supplies and emergency signalling devices, and a thermal blanket. I am absolutely not kidding people get lost a mile from the road and die of exposure.
Map, your phone won’t work more than a mile from city limits.
change of socks.
an offering or three. you might not need any, you might need all of them.
Always close any gate you open. Even if the fence around it is gone. Both from a spiritual perspective and becuase there’s a nonzero chance the farm isn’t abandoned and the livestock is lurking in the scrub.
Cattle will stare at you. As long as they’re on the other side of the fence or river or ditch it’s fine. If there’s no barrier you need to leave. Range cattle fight coyotes and cougar and the worst of winter and don’t give a single fuck about you.
That’s not lore Range Cattle will fucking kill you.
Never approach any horse, but especially the ones without humans. They’re either fae or feral and the odds of them eating your hands are about the same.
Drink your water.
There are Others in Colorado, but the relationship is not nearly so adversarial out here. They’re like your neighbors but only sometimes corporeal. Mind your manners and obey any posted signage and you’ll be fine.
posted signage includes trees fallen across paths or washed-out sections of trail (trail closed), bits of dead animal on stumps or fence posts (occupied, fuck off) and the smell of urine (Mountain lion or bear turn right the fuck around)
Don’t eat anything you find there unless you brought a permit for it with you. Anyone who says you can forage on public land is a liar and going to get their ass poisoned or cursed.
If you did bring a permit, leave an offering anyway. The Law of Man is not the same as The Law of Mountains and you need to pay taxes in both.
Salute magpies, and any bird larger than them.
Everyone going uphill yields going to everyone going downhill, regardless of whether or not they’re human or real.
If you’re over 7000 feet and you seem to have picked up another member to your party, it’s just the mountain wondering what’s happening. It’s like bird watching for them. Be polite, pick up your trash and call the mountain whatever name it gives you.
Drink your fucking water.
If you feel like you’re being followed, especially at dusk, you absolutely turn around and tell whatever’s behind you you know they’re there. This is becuase it’s almost certainly coyotes and they need to be told to fuck off. If you can see what’s following you, face it and walk calmly backwards towards civilization until it goes away or you’re back in your car. If you can’t see what it is, tell it you’re headed home now, then you can turn back around and proceed calmly back from whence you came.
Do not, under any circumstances, run.
things that run are meant to be chased and everything up here is faster than you are.
also you’ll fall off a fucking cliff.
If you get back to the car or edge of the wild space and still feel like you’re being followed, check your shoes, pockets and any baggage for extras and leave them. If you’re STILL being followed, they’re being rude and you’re allowed to chuck a rock at them.
I’m not kidding about the water.
Don’t go into any “abandoned” buildings because 1. there’s a nonzero chance the building isn’t actually abandoned and then you have to explain to the rancher what the fuck you’re doing on their land 2. if it is abandoned it’s probably structurally unstable 3. the only things inside are rattlesnakes and tetanus.
Exception to above: if you hear thunder, you’re close enough to be struck. you can step inside then, but do not touch anything, especially the building it’self.
You are encouraged to walk out to abandoned tractors and plowshares and touch them. Don’t move them but stop to say hi and have some water.
If you find human remains, don’t panic. If they’re out there, they wanted to be found. Write down (you won’t be able to remember later, trust me) where you found them and inform the park service/police as soon as possible.
For all of my witches out there that are artists or just love art of any kind, here are some things to consider adding to your craft.
Use vine or compressed charcoal dust to make black salt
Use sketchbooks as unique grimoires, book of shadows, book of cosmos, dream journals, etc that allow you to use markers, paints, etc to your heart’s desire
Red liquid ink can substitute for blood
Black liquid ink is good for curses especially for blinding, confusion and chaos
Blue liquid ink can represent water or the ocean
Yellow liquid ink for divination

Enchant your calligraphy pens for sigil work to strengthen the sigils you make or spells you write with them
Use doodles of people or how you see a person for taglocks in curses and bindings
Melt crayons for wax seals on jars or other spells by placing them in intense sun or heating them in a wax melter (use caution that you don’t heat them too high)
Melt crayons and mix with coconut oil and olive oil for anointing oil corresponding with the colors you use (also can be used as lipstick if desired)*
Use scrapbooking paper in your grimoire to give it unique and artsy pages
Use your paints to make painted spells. Make a sigil and paint it onto your page or canvas, and based on the sigil’s intent once dried paint over it an image that corresponds with that intent to activate. Hang up in your room or home. Cleanse and charge regularly
Glitter my witches, great for color magic and jar spells (note glitter is not good to be tossed into the environment so please don’t)
Write down a person or ‘force’ in your life you wish to remove and use erasers to erase it away as a simple severing spell
Use your dirty paint water for curses or inspiration spells
Use stickers to seal spell jars
Unable to burn something in your apartment? Drench it in black ink or paint instead
Use mechanical pencil lead in curses by break it up. very effective for writer’s block and creativity block curses
Bead enthusiasts or jewelry makers, use your beads to make spell/enchanted jewelry based on colors, shapes, and letters used in it for correspondences
Make your own ouija boards, crystal grids, pendulum charts, etc on some matte board or foam board using paints to make unique affordable tools
Use chalk dust for warding and protection spells
Buy chalkboard paint to turn a wall or other object into a chalkboard for sigil use, spell writing, organization, etc
Use those plastic reusable paint containers for small portable spell jars
Sharpies and black markers are good for curses in general
Use your color wheels for divination via colormancy
Use modeling clay or pottery clay to make your own offering bowls, statuettes and poppets for a variety of uses
For a quick and easy black mirror simply paint the back glass of a picture frame with black acrylic paint. It may take several layers
Reuse bottles and cans by painting them up to make them witchy containers for your tools, art supplies and other storage purposes
Make drawings, write poetry, write stories, make pottery, make a painting, etc to make as offerings to deities, fae, spirits, etc. Just be sure not to sign it if it is for fae (your name can give them power of you)
Use glue or tape to seal spells, for binding and for strengthening spells
Use whiteout for banishing and invisibility spells
Use henna, temporary tats or body safe paint for fun body sigils
Save pencil shavings for inspiration and creativity spells
Enchant your art supplies to bring you creativity, focus, motivation and inspiration when you use them
Use your paints to paint rocks colors for easy color magic
Turn your name into a sigil to sign your artwork so people will recognize it as yours (or other such desires)
Use used paint sponges to absorb negativity before throwing away
Mix paint or ink with water to make color potions or spell jars
Collect markers, crayons, colored pencils, pens, highlighters, etc to use for colorful written spells, amplify sigils, and to strengthen spells
Illustrate your grimoire, book of shadows, dream journal, etc with images that you feel are important or doodles to add your own extra touch to the spells and information inside. Make it your own
Paint, draw, or design your desires or wishes and charge the art in the moonlight to help welcome those things into your life. Keep the piece of art in your room or home
Use lines from your written poetry, stories, lyrics, etc as spell incantations or lines when writing spells to make them more personal
Use old sketchbooks, idea notebooks, free write journals, etc for bibliomancy
Try/Practice automatic writing or drawing for divination and spirit communication
Make collages out of posters, drawings, photos, writings, poems, etc on your wall to act as a low key altar
Period having people know how painful cramps can be, especially at the beginning of the cycle. This tea is designed to ease cramping by relaxing the muscles of the uterus and aiding in relaxing cycle-related nausea. The herbs used in this blend are traditional remedies for menstrual pain, used for centuries all over the globe.
¼ tsp mugwort - helps stimulate smooth menstrual flow, normalizes and calms the nervous system, regulates menstrual flow
½ tsp red raspberry leaf - cleans the blood of excessive hormones, soothes breast tenderness, supplies the body with many of the nutrients lost during a cycle
½ tsp mint - eases discomfort from cramping, helps ease nausea, regulates bleeding, adds flavor, soothes and comforts
½ tsp parsley - has
strong analgesic and antinociceptive properties, acts as an anticeptic
2 cups of water - purified water works best but tap water is also suitable
Quart sized mason jar with lid - for storing the mixture
Optional - sweetener, lemon, cinnamon sticks
Add the herbal mixture together in a tea strainer. Place strainer in a quart sized mason jar.
Bring 2 cups of water to a rolling boil and pour into the jar over the tea.
Screw on the lid and let the tea steep for 15 minutes.
Once the tea has finished steeping, remove the strainer. You can divide the tea up into 3 parts in separate jars, or measure it out each time so that each dose is exactly 2/3 cup. It must be stored in the fridge.
Drink the dose in the morning when you wake up, at midday, and before bed on the first day of your cycle to ensure best results.
This tea is has a very earthy, bitter flavor. Those who are not fond of teas to begin with will most likely not enjoy this brew. Copious amounts of sugar is recommended to improve the taste, but you may just have to hold your nose and gulp it down…
I realize there is some concern with ingesting mugwort. The FDA recommended safe dose is 1 teaspoon per 8 fluid ounces of liquid, and this tea calls for ¼th of that amount because of the dangers associated with overdosing on mugwort. However, If you do not feel comfortable taking this ingredient, you can simply exclude it from the tea or turn this tea into a spell jar instead.
You can add some magickal components to this tea as well. Here is a sigil for relieving menstrual cramps that you can draw on your abdomen or on the jar used for storing your tea. You can also turn this into part of a tea ritual. I have instructions for one here for healing and relaxation. I recommend researching the magickal properties and energy of each herb used in this tea before use so that you have a grasp on the energy given to you through these plants. Really, your magickal creativity is the limit for this tea!
WARNING: Do not take this tea if you are pregnant, breast feeding, or at risk of becoming pregnant. If you are taking any other medications, check with your doctor first before taking this tea to ensure it will not interact poorly. Please ensure that you are not allergic to any of these ingredients before taking this tea, even in small doses. Do not take more than the recommended dose. Do not take this tea more than once per week.
The best way to work with crystals magickally, is to simply carry them in your pocket or touch them. You can also wear them as jewelry as a single crystal or combined with other complimentary crystals on places such as: over your heart or at your wrists, etc, to disburse the energies throughout the body.
Many people often handle the crystals before they are bought by you, so aligning and cleansing them is recommended for purest energy.
Crystal Alignment Meditation
Stand before your crystals and close your eyes and focus on the moment
Take three slow breaths: inhale to the count of four, hold for count of four, and exhale for count of four, and then hold for another four counts
State firmly in your mind “My spirit vibrates in harmony with (insert crystal type here)” (Robbins & Bedell, 2017).
Continue to mentally recite the chant until you feel an energetic shift in yourself
Open your eyes and start to feel the crystals before you
Hold them, touch them
The crystal that is right for you will feel like its humming in your hand–the sensation of your energy and the crystal energy aligning
Boosting Crystal Power with a Simple Cleansing Ritual
Bowl of soapy water
Sea salt (in small bowl)
Bowl of cold water
Take all the crystals and put them in the bowl of soapy water. Use your hands to rub them clean
Chant as you wash clean: “Water, cleanse and clean. Remove the negative unseen” (Robbins & Bedell, 2017).
When the crystals feel lighter, individually place them in the bowl of salt. The salt will ground them in your energy and their energy, and remove any remaining energy
Next, dip them in the bowl of cold water to rinse off the salt, but keep the energetic process. As you remove them from the cold water, say “By the water, no more negativity. By the water, blessed be” (Robbins & Bedell, 2017)
Your crystals are now blessed and cleansed and ready for use

This is an energetic healing-water prepared in a glass or jar, with the correct combination of crystals. To make your water:
Place the crystals in the bottom of the glass or jar
Set outside in the sun, or by a sunny window
Let sit for 2-8 hours
Once done, strain the water into a clean glass and store
Dosage is 2-3 drops in a glass of water or juice 3-4 times daily
Note: Some crystals have metallic components and may contain iron or other substances that you should not drink or touch. These minerals include malachite, azurite, fluorite, jet, sulfur, serpentine, tigereye, tiger iron, and turquoise. To still obtain the crystal water energies from these crystals, you should use the No-Touch Method.
What you will need
Bottle or jar
Place the crystals in the small bowl
Place the smaller bowl within the larger bowl
Fill the larger bowl with enough water that the water level is above the height of the crystal(s) in the smaller bowl (BUT DOES NOT OVERFLOW INTO THE SMALL BOWL)
Place the bowls outside in the sun or on a sunny window for 2-8 hours
A spell jar to hold the energies and essence of the ocean for use when one is away from the ocean. Good for charging, meditation, sea grounding, spell strengthening, and general ocean witchcraft.
You Will Need:
🌊 A Jar with a tight sealing lid or cork (preferably one that won’t rust) 🌊 Beach Sand 🌊 Sea Salt 🌊 Sea Water (or storm water if you can’t get sea water, tap works if really needed) 🌊 Dried Kelp or Kelp Powder (small amount)
🌊 Sea Shells or crushed shells of choice
🌊 Driftwood (small)
🌊 Sea glass
🌊 Twine or Rope or Blue Ribbon
🌊 Make sure your jar is cleansed and yourself before beginning spell. Have all items prepped and your area cleansed and prepared as you see fit.
🌊 In your jar add the sand covering the bottom. On top of the sand add your shells, driftwood, and sea glass
🌊 In a separate bowl or cup add your water and in it mix in your kelp and your salt, stirring clockwise focusing on the smell it emits (which will be salty and kelpy like the sea) and how the waves and currents of the ocean churn and move. If you desired you may play sounds of waves on a device to add to the visualization. As you stir focus on this visualization and putting those images into the water as you stir it.
🌊 Once thoroughly mixed pour it carefully into your jar, visualizing how the waves rush onto the beach during high-tide, covering the sand and shells on it.
“Water of salt and brine, upon the sand and bits of shell, the ocean I capture into this jar, so I may draw from its energy like a well.” While saying this focus on your intent to capture the energy of the ocean and have it with you when you need it, and keep visualizing the ocean and beach.
🌊 Once you have all of your water in the jar seal it tight with the cork or lid.
🌊 Take your rope/twine/ribbon and tie it around the jar just below the lip of the jar. “I seal the power of the sea inside, I capture the beach at high-tide.”
🌊 Keep refrigerated to prevent from getting gross though contents may have to be regularly replaced (excluding the shells and glass that should be reusable).
Disclaimer: I do not promote using curses lightly. However, they are excellent tools of defense and some people use it against abusers and bullies. So please keep any anti curse replies out of my inbox and off my post. PS I’m not Wiccan and I have plenty of followers who are not as well so the “Three Fold Law” doesn’t apply here.
Well, you warned them once, you warned them twice and perhaps even several more times. Now it’s time to shake up their world. This curse jar is something that is designed to wreak havoc in someone’s life after they refused back off.
The things you will need:
A jar with a lid
A slip of paper
The name of your victim
Bucket of water (optional)
Write your victim’s name on a slip of paper and focus on them hard. Think of all that they have done to you and others. The harm they have caused and why you want to punish them. Drop that slip of paper into the jar and fetch your water. The water you use does not have to be entirely storm water but the more storm water you use, the more chaotic and powerful the curse will be. Pour your water in. This actually will be the start of the curse. Focus on this like it being the initial downpour of a terrible storm. Imagine their life being wrenched out of their control and now they can do nothing but hold on for dear life.
Next you’ll want to add your vinegar. Like with the storm water, the more vinegar, the more potent the curse will be. If you are going to add in those nails, now is the time to do it. Now you should have all your ingredients inside the jar, give that shit a good strong shake to bring in another round of chaos into their life and that is the jar completed.
Now for some optional things to add!
There are different kind of storms in life like sandstorms, sea storms and snow storms so we’ll be bringing these to the table as well!
Sand: Emerse your jar in some sand to give that “Grinding” and “Gritty” sensation into their life. Sand has that horrible tendency to get everywhere so use this as a way to riddle them with a lot of milder annoyances and a ton of reminders of how their life is falling apart.
Bucket of Water: Put your completed jar into a bucket of water to add in an overwhelming and drowning sensation on top of the havoc you have caused.
Refrigerator: Stick your jar in the fridge to sit in the cold so leave a hollow, empty sensation within them as everything falls apart.
Sun: Place your jar in the sunlight to promote an inflammed and anxiety sensation on their mind. This also will add to the stagnation that the nails will bring as they rust.
After all is said and done, have some good self care ready for when you are finished to take care of yourself!
