Magickal Folk Names for Herbs

Having knowledge of herbs and plants (either magically or medicinally) during the Middle Ages, often was reason enough to accuse a woman of being a “witch,” so there is no doubt some of the country folk at the time took these herbal folk names literal.  Chances are, these names were used merely as descriptors to help remember them easier.  Most plants were given names descriptive of their uses and others were given names for something they generally resembled. Spells written by witches in ancient times were often written with such descriptors, which personally i believe to be a form of secret coding.

Here is a small list of “witchy” herb names (most of these are already floating around the community) that you can use in your craft when you create your spells.  This list could be a great addition to any Grimoire and i hope you find them as useful as i do.

I’m on day 10 of my vegetarian experiment. I’m doing fine with it and in fact, find it easier than when I dabbled with eating Paleo. I’m not sure why I found it hard to prepare food Paleo style. My friend says, “you’re just cooking vegetables, there isn’t any pressure.” Perhaps, but we are a family with a lot of condiments. You want mustard? Well, what kind of mustard? Dijon, yellow, Country style, wasabi? You need vinegar? We have white wine, red wine, apple cider, white, balsamic, white balsamic? You want nuts? What kind, we have cashews, walnuts, pecans, almonds, sliced almonds, peanuts. It’s that way with beans and the list goes on. What. Do. You. Want? Be specific, because we probably have it. So the pressure to cook vegetables has been easy with all of the condiments my refrigerator and pantry have to offer.

Who knew that preparing meat was so hard to pair with a starch and vegetable?

Well, that seems to be the case with me. Also, when I was dabbling in Paleo, I was more interested in making desserts. My downfall in life are homemade sweets. I can have chips and Oreo’s or something similar in my pantry and I won’t touch it, but give me something baked with flour, sugar and butter and I’m all in. I remember eating slices and slices of chocolate cake made with almond flour and avocado. Healthy right? As I was telling a friend about how just okay it tasted, while simultaneously trying to wipe off chocolate from my mouth, she promptly reminded me that each slice was like 300 calories. Oh and the cashew cheesecake? First few bites tasted, again, just okay and then the after taste. Blech!!

Paleo didn’t last, but what did last was my love for vegetables and sweets made the way they are supposed to be made, sugar, butter and flour.

I digress.

I’m enjoying eating this way, especially with pressure off of me trying to be vegan or strict vegetarian, whatever that means. I didn’t want to restrict myself from eating cheese or eggs. I haven’t gone nuts on either, which when eating meat caused me to go crazy with cheese. It makes me wonder on day 10, if there is something in meat that makes you crave dairy in the form of cheese? Not sure if it’s a psychological placebo thing going on, but it is, what it is.

Last weekend we went to the Velvet Taco and there were vegetarian options. I had a Fried Paneer tomato chutney, thai basil, tikka sauce, raita crème on a corn tortilla and a Falafel, tahini crème, arugula, tomatoes, fresnos, avocado, pickled red onion pea tendrils on a corn tortilla. I died and went to heaven eathing those tacos and I’ve never had paneer before and it was divine. DE-VINE. I later learned it was fried cheese curd. Full-fat cheese curd. Then on Sunday, we took The Chef out to dinner and I had a lousy Kale and Brussel sprouts salad sans the salmon and stuffed artichoke hearts with goat cheese. Both were very bland and there was a lot of cheese on those artichokes.

The cheese festivus made me feel a little guilty, because I can now see where you can intake a lot of calories eating cheese. So, I made fat-free paneer for the first time and I now understand why the full fat version tastes so much better. I plan on using it in a butter paneer/chickpea dish or in a cauliflower rice stirfry. I am trying to stay away from rice and pasta. I was never too big on either of those either. So, why all the weight gain? Well, part of my thinking is the lack of hormones and home baked sweets (yeah, I baked a lot) and no real portion control when it came to eating meat. At least that’s what I’m thinking. I fill up on a serving of vegetables and I feel really full. I’m not getting on any soap box, but I’m finding it weird that I’m not over eating. Maybe my mind was ready for this type of experiment?

Last night I made homemade black bean burgers.


I don’t think I’ve ever tried a black bean burger before or I can’t remember ever eating one, but I had everything in my pantry and only had to sub a poblano for a yellow bell pepper and feta for cotija cheese. If you have the patience and time and all of the ingredients, I’m going to tell you, these burgers were AWESOME!! The recipe: Really Awesome Black Bean Burgers by J.Kenji Lopez-Alt. I really like reading his recipes, because he writes about the science of food. If you don’t make these burgers, just read the recipe. I’m not finding eating this way difficult at all. I have a had a lot of cooking inspiration following food blogs and photos on IG. I love IG. I’m a person that does not want to eat a plateful of steamed vegetables, I need variety, texture, and taste.
My husband had a dinner last night for his peeps and he said he made cobbler for dessert, so I asked him to bring me one. Since he came home late, I was already in bed reading and watching TV. I asked him if he brought me cobbler and he said yes, but then he promptly took off his shirt, which he does almost every night and plopped himself in front of me to scratch his back. Ugh!! Tit for Tat, or as he likes to say, Tit for Tit. Turns out he didn’t bring me dessert, which was probably a good thing, but I was disappointed, so I ate a handful of grapes.

Totally not the same.

The other morning, I was showering and he busted in and stared at me (our shower looks like the Pope mobile) and said that I looked like I’ve lost a few pounds. I’ve never been able to take compliments well, so I told him to fuck off and he left. Who wants to be stared at while they take a shower? I think he’s full of shit and is looking for extra scratches.

I’ve reached the age where I try not to look at myself naked anymore. My bathroom is one big mirror, there isn’t any way around seeing yourself, but I caught a glimpse before I grabbed my trusty robe and I think my stomach has gotten flatter. I don’t have a scale, well, I do have scale, but the spiders are using it for their home. I’m going by the way I feel and while I mostly wear elastic waisted pants, I feel thinner today.

Tomorrow I go see the doctor and I’m sure I’ll be weighed and I don’t want to know, but I do want to know about my hormones, thyroid and cholesterol levels.

So, all of this to tell you that I’m doing great eating vegetarian. The people having difficulty are the husband and son, they are looking for meat to eat. My son is okay eating this way when he’s home. He told me that as long as I’m cooking, he’ll eat it. The husband is another story. Before he left for work this morning, he opened the refrigerator, closed it and walked away saying, “I didn’t sign up for this.”

And there you go.

Poached Pear and Goat Cheese Salad [The Witch Way]

Alright so. I’m not a chef nor anything. I just cook good food and incorporate my witchy ways while I do it. These measurements are by no means exact because…I just feel out my food and never measure (except for baking obviously).  I like to think about the purpose of each ingredient before I add it, so that their properties can manifest in my mind. This salad was used as a mini cheer up and stop being so sick solution. So…here’s what I did. 


  • Pears (I used 2 red pears) [for love, because I was feeling a bit blue]
  • Onions (I used 2 small red onions) [too banish negative feelings]
  • Lettuce of your choice (I used green leaf)
  • Goat Cheese
  • Turmeric [for confidence, and for my bones because they hurt]
  • White Wine (You can do without, but It’s way better with)
  • Herbs de Provence [optional, but the properties are too long to list here]
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Sugar (I use raw brown sugar) [for sweetness]
  • Butter/Olive Oil

For the dressing: I cheated and just mixed together some salad dressings I already had which were like, one squeeze of thousand island, some raspberry vinagrette, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. 


  1. Slice up your onions and melt a hunk of butter or put olive oil (I do both lol) in a large skillet, add the onions at low to medium heat. I also like to add some herbs de provence blend to this for a little extra oomph. Toss the onions with a spatula so that they don’t stick and burn. Cook, tossing when you think of it, for about 30 minutes I guess, or until the onions are a nice golden brown. 
  2. Dump the onions into a bowl, and you should have a brown crust on your skillet. Pour a few spoonfuls of white wine or you can use vinegar, a dash of water (more if you use vinegar), and a few spoonfuls of brown sugar into the skillet. Let it boil, scraping the crust of the pan as you go. Pour this fabulous dark brown substance over the onions, stir it in, and refrigerate. It should be syrupy, almost. 
  3. Using the same pan, put some water at the bottom of it. Add some white wine, balsamic vinegar, a little salt and some turmeric. I cut up some pears and cored them, and placed them in the liquid with about three packs of sugar and poured more water on top until they were almost covered. Bring the water to a boil, and cook until the pears are tender (about 15 minutes). Refrigerate in the liquid until ready to use. 
  4. Combine your lettuce, dressing, and goat cheese, spoon onions on top. Cut up the pears and place on top. 

BAM. You’re done. You can also add some dried cranberries, or nuts, or whatever if you want (I was too lazy.) This is a great dish to prepare when you’re doing other things but want good food because while it takes a bit to cook, you don’t REALLY have to watch it or anything. 

The time has finally come! Yes! Sunny warm days and al-fresco meals.

I’ve got you covered with this fruity caprese salad. Seriously this salad was a bit of this and bit of that and a bit of whatever was in the fruit bowl.

"Is it bad that I hardly remember what you like from when I was younger?" he laughs softly, handing over a wrapped box that contained a white silk tie fixed with the big green Diamond that usually adorned the Aether uniforms on the knot, but also a brooch in the form of a red Gladiolus flower, a white canna lily, and a white balsam flower. "Happy fathers day."

”…Oh Gladion.” 

Was that…tears? Yes, Mohn was definetly crying a little as he held the box admiring it between blurred tears. His fingers trembled over the delicate lace and just gorgeous decoration. His boy seemed to pay close attention to detail seeing as the sentiment alone from the emerald diamond to the brooch was enough to render him speechless for a moment. 

“This-…this is beautiful! And just-….I can’t-….how do I-….??” Well he was at a loss for words but not action as he quickly closed in on his boy to squeeze him in a tight hug that seemed like he’d never let go. 

“My son, my dear boy..! This means more to me that I got something from you, you know…!” He found his words finally, sighing in the content warmth of his happiness. “This is the third greatest gift you’ve given me you know? The first being when you arrived here and the second was the…first time you called me ‘Dad’ in the whole long while you’ve stayed.”


Today’s vegan breakfast was really amazing: One whole grain bagel topped with some organic avocado from the farmers market, freshly grounded pepper, a tiny bit of sea salt and creamy white balsamic vinegar besides some fresh straw - and raspberries (I had way more than pictured). Such a lovely treat after a stressful week full of exams and studying. Have an amazing day, xx Amber 

bismyname  asked:

07: What did you last eat?

Last thing I had to eat was marinated flank steak, herb roasted potatoes, green beans with caramelized onions, and crusty bread with infused olive oil and white balsamic.

Yeah it was so good.

Vegan power bowl for dinner: White rice with olive - oil and onion sautéed beetroot and white beans next to some organic raw red bell pepper. Spiced everything with freshly grounded pepper and curry powder plus lemon juice and  creamy white balsamic vinegar. So delicious and filling after a day full of studying! :) xx 

A Master List of Things Ruled by the Planets, the Signs, and the Fixed Stars

This will be the ninth post in our series on astrological magic. Now I’m going to expand on the planets, signs, and fixed stars, and give you some information about the particular perfumes, plants, and materials which are influenced by specific celestial bodies. This will be a fairly extensive post, detailing many things which are under the influence of the various celestial powers, or which otherwise correspond to them. I will start with the planets, going in Chaldean order, which means I’ll be starting with Saturn. This post intends to be very useful, but in order to successfully draw power from the heavenly bodies and have their energy directed effectively to carry out your will, you should not use this post as the only reference for your methods. Be safe, and feel free to ask us if you have any questions.
