Simmer Pot For Peace and Love

Since we are having guests over for the first time ever, I really want the house to feel…inviting and cozy and warm. SO! I decided to craft a little simmer pot to get those juices flowing!

  • 2 Lemons, peeled and sliced (for cleansing, and for joy)
  • Roughly 2 TBSP of Rosemary (for Love, protection and peace)
  • 3 TBSP Lavender (Love, happiness, comfort)
  • Pinch of Sea Salt (for cleansing and purifying)

So, just combine these all in a small pot, fill it with water, and bring it to a boil. Then reduce heat and let it simmer however long, adding more water when it gets low. 

PRO-TIP- Don’t throw away those lemon peels!! You can dry them and use them for witchcraft! You can soak them in salt to make Lemon Salt!! You can candy them and eat ‘em!

I finally found a book that will serve as my grimoire! I’ve been wary of those lovely leather journals because they never seem to lie flat very well, and I want to use this in the kitchen to double as a cookbook of my favorite recipes. So this artist’s sketchbook will be perfect. It opens easily and won’t close on me when I’m cooking or have my hands occupied.

Now I just have to decide how to decorate the title page appropriately!

Kitchen Witch Tip

If you’re in the mood to do something magickal without actually performing a spell, you could take one of your cookbooks and annotate it with the magickal correspondences of the ingredients, draw in ideas of how to put a magickal spin on these recipes, or make notes on it of what kind of rituals or spells that food would be good in!

Why thank you!

The book, if things go according to plan, will be available to purchase digitally through the barns and noble website and amazon.com in the hopes of gaining enough funds to publish a tangible edition.

this digital copy will cost an inedible…$5. Yup, that’s right. Five measly dollars.

Why so cheap?

1) Because I love my followers and while I do need to make money I do not have any desire to price gouge a digital version of the book.

2) Because it is digital. Paper, ink, and distribution costs are astonishing. Trust me, I looked into it. A paper version of the book in color would need to be around $35 bucks…and I really don’t want to have to charge anyone that kind of money and don’t get me started on international shipping. Digitally I can reach a broader audience for far less money. And since most of my readers are online…okay who am I kidding…ALL of my readers are online….I know that you have a device that is capable of reading the product. So, yay!

3) My math works out like this. I quite a job flipping burgers to pursue this career choice. I have almost 13,000 followers on tumblr alone. If only HALF of you (and oh my gods would I appreciate it) buy my book…I will make more than I have in a year working at that place. This would support me in making the other books I plan to write:

  • Chrysalis’ Book of Shadows
  • A Year and a Day Study Guide
  • More Holiday Recipes
  • Every Day Kitchen Witchery

So on and so forth. Buy charging as much as I do for a five dollar spread I wont be dipping into anyone savings. It will cost less to buy my book than eat a meal at McD’s.

I hope this answers your question joyiswhat, moreoever…I hope you get your copy of DA:I too.
