Doing some secret magic today (so not pictured) in the presence of these vibrant elemental tinctures. They aren’t ready to press out, but I often find that having herbs and potions in process near by as I craft helps center and focus my magic. It’s nice to have a little sweet, quiet company while crafting away at something. #plantfriends
Working on a Frankincense + Rose face serum. Infused with wild harvested rose hips and organic calendula, with organic Frankincense and geranium essential oils, organic apricot kernel oil, and some other magic ingredients, this serum is nourishing, high in vitamin C and E, anti-aging, and anti-oxidant. Easily absorbable, this serum is great for most skin types. Leaves my skin feeling plump and healthy, and it smells amazing. Keep an eye out for these lovely little potion bottles in the shop.
#cardoftheday // THE KNIGHT OF PENTACLES : The knight of pentacles comes with an offer of stability but he is slow moving. He is here to remind you that what is worth having does not come fast or easy but after much thought and patience. Happy Sunday everyone! ✨
How to make Solar & Lunar Infusions: By using the light of the sun or moon to extract the healing properties of herbs is one of my favorite and ritual methods for making tea. Medicinal teas brewed by this method may not contain the same amount of chemical constituents as those simmered on a stovetop but they contain a different level of healing! 🌞 To make a solar infusion, place 4-6 tbsp of dried herb (or 6-8 tbsp of fresh herb) into a glass jar with a tight fitting lid. Fill with cold water and cover tightly. Let sit in direct sunlight for several hours- You can place the jar directly outside or on a windowsill with lots of sunlight. After you feel it’s right to prepare, strain the herb material out of the jar and you have a delicious brew ready for sipping!
I used these herbs for a mid-day, “take the edge off” cup of tea:
1pt Lemon Balm (Melissa)
1pt Milky Oats
1/2 pt Red Rose Petals
1/2 pt Sunflower Petals
🌝 To make a lunar infusion, place the herbs in an open container; unless there are a lot of night-flying bugs around, you can cover bowl or jar with a cheesecloth or netted material to prevent little buddies from crawling in. Fill with water and position directly in the path of the moonlight. Continue to follow the previous steps as suggested in the solar method. Lunar tea is angelic, subtle and downright magical. This is my favorite preparation whenever a little extra magic is needed!
I suggest using these herbs for a relaxing, before bed cup of tea:
1 pt Skullcap
1/2 pt Holy Basil
1/2 pt Chamomile
I hope this found you well and would love to see YOUR solar and lunar infusions🌿
Much love, @overgrown_nightshade
For the male witches
I am the boy
I see the world with childlike wonder. I tap a delightful rhythm with my stick. I am in reverence of life around me, learning, playing and finding my way.
I am the man
I walk the earth with my staff at the ready; To protect, create and gather what she has to give. I hold the lives I help create within my arms, looking to the stag in the distance.
I am the elder
My staff, now a wand. My strength of body, now of words. My speed given up for wisdom. I pass my stories to those who wish to listen and to learn.
I am the God
I am the creator of life, and giver of strength, endurance and wisdom. I am spoken of in games, hunts and circles of elders. I am the power called upon in rituals which your will be done.
I am the witch
I am the boy, the man the elder and god.
As above me, so below me.
So mote it be
I am a witch
With rhymes and reasons,
I am a changeling like the seasons.
My mother is the moon,
My father is the sun,
With goddess earth am I as one.
I am a witch, a pagan child.
Mother nature's spirit so wild,
Grows within me,
Flows within me,
Meandering like a spellbound stream,
Enchanting my every waking dream,
I breathe the air of liberation,
I tend the fire of transformation,
I drink the water of creation,
Earth magick is my conjuration.
I am a witch of shadow and light,
Of avelon mists and ravens flight.
I am a witch, with pride say I,
For a witches soul,
Does never die.
"The greatest joy of any apprentice is to find a question that will engage them for a lifetime. If the edges of knowledge are always beyond her reach, she can rest in the sweet humility of not-knowing while being continually enriched by the gifts of discovery. The reciprocity that makes the land sacred, that creates a temenos or temple of worship in the ordinary places we live, requires more than our receiving of its gifts. We must contribute to its ability to be generous...we must contribute to the conversation with the holy nature...Developing this response-ability is what attuned us to magic. It is what puts us into no-time, where all eternity dwells. " ~ Toko-pa Turner ~

💀÷Imbolc Ashes Divination÷💀
Practiced by the Ancient Greeks, some Native American tribes, West African tribes, the Etruscans, English, Romani, and Chinese, in about as many different ways.
Some say you can only use ritual ashes, some only use the ashes from animal sacrifice. Native Americans said they knew how the journey of a friend had gone by checking the embers of the fire in the morning. In Poland only women were allowed to read the ashes. In Celtic tradition, the night before Imbolc, ashes were spread on the hearth, and in the morning, checked for markings or signs that Brigid had visited and blessed the house. Peruvians would spread ashes on the floor the night of a funeral and check the ash for markings - whatever animal left tracks, that was what the deceased had turned into in the spirit world.
My method is really simple.
Perform after dark.
Collect all your ritual ashes or incense ashes. Drop it onto a plate and give it a shake.
Light a candle on either side, not too close as you can burn yourself!
Lower your face to the ashes, so close that the tip of your nose is almost touching. Like a "magic eye" picture, hold your eyes open until they start to blur. Move your face over the ashes, up and down, back and forth, until you start to make out images and the emotions you feel when you see them.
Take a break to write down what you saw and felt. 💀💀💀
This is an Imbolc tradition, but its also practiced on other pagan holidays and all year round.
