Samhain Tea Recipe

Great Samhain Blessings!

Today, in our modern calendar, marks Halloween! Also called Samhain. Pronounced Sow-wen, or Sow-ween, is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter, or the “darker half” of the year. Amongst witches, it is considered the new spiritual year. Being because, on this holy day, the spirits of the otherworld are allowed to visit the living and sow their old seeds. And with that our living souls are given new goals, dreams, and lessons to be taken in.

Because our dear departed return to us on this holy night, it is tradition to pay them honor. We give them offerings of sliced apples, blessed tea, milk,  or barley. We light candles and place them on our window sills to light the way. We carve frightening pumpkins  to scare off the mischief of troublesome spirits. And renew the barriers around our homes to prepare for winter.

The tea I have prepared for tonight’s ritual and offering is a delicious blend.

Remembering The One’s Who Have Passed + Spell

Welcome!

Not many know that April 28th is a time for honor and remembering those who have passed in your life. If not family or friends, then to the ancestors who have helped guide you through life.

Use this day to communicate with those spirits. However, please always keep it safe when it comes to Spirit spells. Consider casting a protection circle with either salt, candles, or a barrier infusion.

Spirit Communication Spell


Combine together
3 parts Wormwood
1 part Vervain
A small piece of paper with the spirit’s name (cut into small pieces)

Instructions:

Grind. All the while, empowering the mix with your energy and memories of the spirit(s).
When ready, cast your protection circle, then with either a black candle, a piece of charcoal, or a burning bonfire, burn the mix.

Chant:

 Et vocavi vos, (spirit’s name)

(I summon you, (spirit’s name))

 

Continue chanting until you feel a presence.


I highly recommend to leave an offering! Most give apples, barley, and milk. I prefer to give Lavender Tea with some extra sweet honey! Lavender tea, to me, is such a beautiful symbol of peace and rest, what better tea for the spirits to enjoy.


Now, I know that the idea of communicating with a spirit is quite intimidating. That’s alright to feel that way. Rather instead, cook a meal, bake bread or cookies! Dedicate the whole banquet to the spirits and ancestors. Have a place at the table empty with a plate and offerings!

Well happy tidings all! Have a truly blessed day and night!

We Must Always Remember Those That Have Passed

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.

Enjoy these blends and many blessings fellow witches!
