The Cold Moon in January

Hello All!

Welcome back in this newest update! We had an exciting last week with the upcoming full moon and a planetary alignment!! I was very happy to learn that the best day of the alignment was on the day of the full moon. I hope we all had our chance for rituals and spells!

As for me, I decided to dedicate this time in preparing my stream and snow water for Imbolc, as well as create a Full Moon bath salt blend, and lastly enjoy calling down the moon with a fresh pot of tea.

I will be much more specific when it comes to the Water Blessing in another post. So for now I will discuss the Full Moon Bath Salts. As probably you all can tell, I love bath salts, right along next to TEA! But these salts are by far my favorite to bathe in; because of the revitalizing scent!

FULL MOON BATH SALT

1/2 Cup of Epsom Salt

1/4 Cup of Baking Soda

Drops of Jasmine Oil

Drops of Orange Oil

Drops of Grapefruit Oil

Again, I say drops because it completely depends on the individual! Of course I put a lot! The scent is to die for, and I just love the way it lingers on the skin. My hubby sure finds it alluring. I suppose because I designed it around the basis of the Full Moon itself. The moon alone is so enchanting.

Now, I chose Jasmine because of its lunar correspondence; it is an oil that honors the Moon Goddess. Orange and Grapefruit I decided upon because of their uplifting, purification properties, as well as their creativity, psychic enhancement, meditation, and self-courage attributes.

Within the salt, I drew a symbol.

This symbol is like so:

*O*

And I had chanted:

Lunaris Benictionem

(The Moon’s Blessing)

Now remember, that yes it is perfect to use these salts at the time of the Full moon before any ritual or spell work. You need to get the spirit energized and cleansed! And also, I HIGHLY recommend meditating (if you  don’t already do so) during the bath. Such wonders you come across! Especially considering that this blend is helpful to get the creative juices flowing! LOVE!

Now, it wouldn’t be right to not have any TEA involved in this! After the bath, I went outside to sit and enjoy a cup of tea under the Full Moon. I called down the Goddess, with a white candle, a Goddess blended incense, and with my open spirit. Simple.

When calling down the Goddess; many different witches have their own way of chanting to Her, but I rather just speak from the heart, and I never fail to feel her presence within me.

My Full Moon tea blend is much like the bath salts.

Yummy Full Moon Bath Salts & Tea!

New Year’s Incense & Tea

Welcome!

When I do my New Year’s ritual I incorporate my own blend of incense and tea. I figured it would be helpful to share my recipe blend.

New Year’s Incense

I used a tsp. of each and then gave it a good grind. I decided on these herbs because bay and frankincense represent the winter season; whereas jasmine and cinquefoil are dedicated to the spring. I saw these as a symbol of the Crone and Maiden transforming/blending together. Also to include that frankincense and bay are to purify, cleanse, and protect the spirit. Jasmine and cinquefoil are for love, luck, health, and to banish negative forces. For me, it is the perfect new year’s incense.


New Year’s Tea Blend

Again I used a tsp. of each. This blend is so helpful in the beginning of the year because of its magical properties. Combined together this tea summons health, luck, love, protection, wisdom, and unblocking ones path.

These blends have worked for me for years. And every new year seems to blossom and grow. After blending, be sure to bless these herbs.

It depends on the witch, but I love to bless and chant in Latin.

My blessing chant was:

Benedicat Herbam Anni

 

Well I hope this post is helpful to any who are interested.

Blessed be fellow witches. And once again, happy new year!
