Middle Earth Magic: Inspired Ideas and Seasonal Spells for Your Enchanted Life

I grew up on a farm in West Virginia and learned much about herbs, trees, animals, gardening, foraging  and so much about nature. I incorporate this wisdom I learned from elders in my family into my spellwork. When I finally left the farm, I majored in Medieval Studies, my attempt to emulate my idol, J.R.R. Tolkien. All these influences led me to my own blended brew which I call "middle earth magic," containing a mix of the modern and the time-tested "old ways."

Massage Oils For Healing and Protection

Massage oils can be made in minutes if you have the ingredients on hand; head to your nearest health food store and get the raw ingredients. I am one lucky lady to have a soap and candle store in my neighborhood, Juniper Tree in Berkeley, California. I am there twice a month picking up what I need from candle wicks to essential and base oils and plain bath salts for my custom creations. Record your experiments with various oils in a journal. After several moons, note which had the best results for you and which you preferred. For example, if you received a proposal for marriage after a Very Vanilla soaking session, I’d say that works for you!
