winter essential

2

This week’s spread featuring my winter essentials. I’ve been waking up rather anxious every morning this week (for no legit reason), so I’ve been trying to wake up earlier than usual. Having lots of time for your morning routine really allows you to go slow on groggy mornings; It’s never too early for some self care, and starting the morning out right will make your whole day feel a lot less tiring!

Empowerment Spell Bottle

My craft is quite personal. I just follow my instincts and choose things that seem to call to me at the time, so you won’t find me posting spells very often. But as I was making up this spell bottle I thought I’d post it to inspire others to create something similar or to add a little magick to their holiday season.

This bottle contains:

-water (from my home)
-a few drops of sweet orange essential oil (to keep my family close)
-lavender buds (for less stress)
-rose buds (for love)
-bay leaf (for prosperity)
-catnip (for my kitty)
-sea salt (for luck in my craft)
-dandelion (so my wishes come true)

While placing this bottle under the light of the holiday full moon, I will chant:

With this elixir I ask the Earth
to be with me now
and in this year’s new birth.

I plan to dab the charged water on my wrists and behind my ears throughout the year to empower me and remind me of my goals from the previous year.

Wishing you all Happy Holidays, and a lovely new year (:

SURVIVING WINTER // ESSENTIALS
(written by Glory)

It’s getting colder in the southern hemisphere and I’m only thinking of one thing… I love winter fashion and winter in general because the weather is a good enough excuse to curl up in a million blankets, watch movies all day, consume endless amounts of soup and tea and coffee – it’s just an overall great time. However, being cold sucks so here’s a 101 guide on how to survive winter and some essentials I personally need to get through it alive:

Holiday Greeting Card Witchy Tip:

Place your cards in a large ziplock baggie with some cinnamon, fir or peppermint essential oil on a cotton ball. This will scent your cards. You can even enchant them before sealing with a little something extra if you wish. It’s a festive way to share your celebration through magic. 

okay fellow friends and witches, I make this sugar scrub shit that’s basically the bomb. I’m gonna give you the recipe for it because “it makes you feel like a goddess.” -my brother when I made him feel my arm

you’ll need
-1 cup sugar
-½ cup oil (I use olive oil bc it’s good for your skin)
-1 tablespoon of smelly good stuff (vanilla or almond extract kinda smells like cake batter. peppermint extract is good for winter. // you can use essential oils for a glamour spell, but like I said I like to use this on my lips) basically anything you wanna smell like

mix it all up in a bowl. after you shave, rub this stuff all over you until your hands start feeling weird. rinse it off, and shave again with a disposable razor because the oil dulls the blade. (don’t use this on your downstairs because it can cause a yeast infection and no one likes those.) and that’s that! I’m not sure where I learned this recipe from, but thank you so much because it works great. you’ll be soft for like 4 days without lotion.
