Healing Yourself: Stress-busting Power of Lavender

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.

Soothe Your Spirit; DIY Massage Candles

Making massage candles is very similar to making any other type of potted candle  I recommend using soy wax as it is soooo gentle on the skin . Soy was is also nice and soft so it melts easily and stays together in a puddle after melting and can be reused for us thrifty crafters. If you have an allergy to soy and it won't irritate your skin unless you have a soy allergy, you can use beeswax instead which is so widely used. (For example, it is in nearly every single Burt’s Bees product.)  It is the addition of the additional oils and prevents it from hardening again and also enables your skin to absorb it.  Essential oils or cosmetic-grade fragrance oils are also added to create a soothing atmosphere. All soap-making fragrances that are also soy candle safe are perfect choices for scenting your massage candles. Try the basic directions below to make your first candle. For every three ounces of wax, you'll add one ounce of liquid oil, and one-quarter ounce of fragrance. I suggest making two candles in 4 ounce metal tins while you master this craft.

Gather together:

·        2 ounces sweet almond carrier oil or vitamin E oil

·        6 ounces High quality soy wax

Moon Tea: Hedgewitch Brew

 It amuses me to see how trendy cold brewed coffees and teas have become as hedgewitches and wise women have been making this delightful concoction for centuries. It is the same as making Sun Tea, which is gently heated by the warmth of the sun, but is made at night in the light of the moon. Simply take lidded a quart canning jar and fill it with cold, pure spring water and add 4 herbal teabags of your choice or a large tea ball or muslin bag filled with 3 heaping tablespoonfuls of dried herbs. Seal the lid on the canning jar and leave it outside or on your windowsill so it can be exposed to the light of the moon. When you awaken in the morning, you will have cold brewed tea. Do make notes in your Book of Shadows for which brews taste best to you. I can tell you that when the full moon is in the signs for Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Libra and Pisces, the tea is most delicious to me, with my current favorites being ginger peach and cinnamon hibiscus.
