the ugliest troll in the North Countree.

Keep Calm and Carry Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender is beloved and for good reason; it is one of the best and most commonly used "adaptogenss" that appears to adapt to any mood. An instant refresher, the sweetly serene and floral aroma is relaxing and calming. Applied topically, lavender oil is excellent for mental concentration, reducing stress tension, calming upset and alleviating insomnia. 
 

From the Breath to Your Brain:
Put  2-3 drops of lavender oil in your palms, rub rapidly  and take a deep inhalation. This way the smell enters the amygdala, the center for emotions, and provides a feeling of instant relaxation. In case you are have skin sensitiveness, you can put the drops of lavender essential oil b a cotton call or clean dry cloth, I advise keeping some at your desk for work and also bring a tiny bottle for when you are travelling, Heck, keep some with you at all times.

Does it Hurt Crystal When We Work With Negative Energy

This week's blog post comes from a question posed by my friend and recent client who uses crystals in her work. In a nutshell it is whether we hurt crystal when we work with it. It is a great question! Here's the question from my friend followed by the answer I received from (Crystal Guide) Venus:

QUESTIONS FROM SHERYL SITTS Regarding whether we hurt crystal

"Quick question…many tell us to use crystals to draw out negative emotions, pain, sickness, etc. from the body. Does putting that in hurt crystal? Is it not harmful to them? Do they just transmute it? Is it a drawing out of negative/harmful into crystals or a putting in of light and healing from the crystals?

Dancing with the Black Man

I recently had an e-mail from a friend who, after this year's Midwest Grand Sabbat, had packed up the family and headed out on a road trip, destination: Salem, Mass.

As an offering, she'd brought a cork from the Grand Sabbat night.

Now, this may seem an odd kind of offering to make, of little or no intrinsic value, but think about it.

Gods help us, the Salem witch craze of 1692 is probably the most famous witch hunt of history. (Americans have always been good at publicity.) Personally, I doubt that we see here anything more than scapegoating and the pathological inner workings of theocratic society.

But let us say for a moment—call it “mythic history”—that there actually were witches of our sort in “17th” century Salem: people who fled to the New World because it was no longer safe to keep to the Old Ways back in the old one.

What do they find when they get here? A mighty Forest (and such a forest!) and in that forest, who but the Black Man Himself, our beloved Horn-God, more beautiful and terrible than ever, already waiting for us.

Waiting to dance.

Would you not want to know that, 300-some years on, our people are still here?
