Everyday Witchcraft: Burt's Bees Glamours and Affirmations
So I really like Burt’s Bees Chapstick.
And I use a lot of it.
My favorite one is the honey infused, which is fitting because of being an Aphrodite devotee and all, but I’ve developed this ritual when I apply my lip balm where I put it on, breathe in the scent, and then say “I speak sweetly. People listen and believe me.” This inspired me to come up with little mini spells for more of the scents, so here you go. Burt’s Bees’ spells on the go. Enjoy. :)
Honey: Use as a glamour to make you seem sweet and cute as a button as well as charming them with your speech. Useful when avoiding persecution or hiding your true intentions of world domination.
Affirmation: I speak sweetly. People listen and believe me.
Wild Cherry: If you’re looking for a classy seductress vibe, wild cherry is your gal. Maybe blow some kisses at yourself in the mirror or lick your lips to lock in the feeling and get yourself in the flirting mood.
Affirmation: I am fair and enchanting, my kiss makes people melt.
Pink Grapefruit: Use for cleansing and purifying yourself of an argument. Having a hard time keeping peace with your relatives about politics at the thanksgiving table when it would be better to stay quiet? Try this baby.
Affirmation: I wash myself of this conflict. I am free from negativity.
Strawberry: Strawberry is associated with innocent love and wealth. The many fruits on the vine represent fertility as well, meaning strawberry is the perfect fruit for bringing overall success into your life and keeping it there.
Affirmation: I have abundance. All I say and do brings me success and love.
Coconut Pear: Coconut represents absolute purity. In WWI some soldiers were given transfusions of coconut water when donor blood was low because it is sterile. Pears are a key love element, so if you’re wanting to attract real love, from people with good intentions (perhaps weeding out the creeps when internet dating) then this one’s for you.
Affirmation: I am bathed in affection by those with pure intentions.
Raspberry: Raspberry represents health, fertility, communication and love. Use to facilitate healthy relationships and help you to maintain physical health along with a healthy lifestyle. If you can feel yourself getting stress sickness, use an affirmation like this to turn it around.
Affirmation: My relationships and my body are healthy. I am free of pain.
Pineapple: Use for attracting wealth and success into your life. Pineapple is the fruit of the traveler, gifted to show hospitality and status. It’s rich inside can hardly be seen as anything but gold in fruit form. You can use this affirmation as a way to both convey status you may not yet have, as well as attract it.
Affirmation: My voice is filled with opulence. Wealth is headed my way.
Mango: Mango is heavily associated with Buddha and enlightenment. Use this to bring focus back to your spiritual journey, and to help others on their own.
Affirmation: I am free and enlightened. My words have the power of knowledge.
Blueberry: Use this for protection. Strong protection. Blueberry keeps danger away, confuses and causes distress to enemies who push the boundary. A word unleashed to your enemies under this protection will cause them distress and make them want to leave you alone.
Affirmation: I am untouchable. I needn’t speak to intimidate my enemy.
Pomegranate: Use this one before doing divination to heighten psychic energy and help with seeing beyond the veil if that’s your thing. Pomegranates have significance in many religions as being highly spiritual and associated with heaven or the underworld. As a glamour, this could also help with giving off “I am a mysterious and powerful witch” vibes, so if you’re doing witchcraft work for non witchy people, such as divination, this could help set the mood.
Affirmation: I am powerful with the energies of life and death. When divining I speak the truth.
Vanilla Bean: This is the big whammy of love spell ingredients. If you’re going out and just wanna find someone RIGHT NOW then vanilla is the powerful punch you’re looking for. The silky scent combined with charmed speech is a powerful seduction tool. It also makes you feel very confident and sexy on your own, so that’s great too.
Affirmation: *blow a kiss* I seduce with the force of a sorceress.
The debut album from the foursome from Pennsylvania. It featured the ferocious single “Play That Funky Music.” Robert Parissi’s animated vocals were complemented by the soulful chimes of the guitar, a smokin’ bassline, and some hyped backing vocals. It peaked on the Billboard R&B and pop charts at number one. They received rave reviews considering that the band was all white conveying such a funky message. (The arrangement and lyrical phrasing are very similar to that of Stevie Wonder’s “You Haven’t Done Nothing” found on his Fulfillingness’ First Finale album that was released two years prior.) No other singles came from this album. However, there were funk jams and smokin’ numbers including remakes of “No Where to Run” and “99 ½.” Still, nothing compares to the featured single.
