Healing Apple Tea

Welcome!

Whenever the winter season is nearly among us, we must prepare our minds, bodies, and souls. To keep them healthy and positive. Once the winter season is here, dark days will surely feel longer, as well as that winter chill. The possible cold and flu is at its strongest. 

With that being written, I have a wonderful tea recipe that has helped me for years. I give you, my healing tea.

Healing Tea

Brew the saffron and cinnamon in half cup of hot water. Add in the honey. Then lastly stir in the apple cider when the brew has cooled ever so slightly. As the cup is brewing I chant:

Saffron heals the mind. Apple heals the heart. Cinnamon to strengthen. Honey to guard.

This magical recipe should grant you health, as well as beneficial immune boosting properties!


What is a little tea without the sweets?! I love to pair this tea with delicious homemade chocolate cookies! There’s something about the apple flavor that compliments the chocolate.

Chocolate Cookies Recipe!

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chunks

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat chopped chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe bowl in 20-second increments, stirring between each, until almost melted; do not overheat. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.

  2. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla on high speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low; beat in melted chocolate. Mix in flour mixture until just combined. Stir in chocolate chunks.

  3. Drop heaping tablespoons of dough 2 to 3 inches apart onto baking sheets. Bake, rotating sheets halfway through, until cookies are shiny and crackly yet soft in centers, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on baking sheets 10 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Enjoy! And be sure to add a little of your own magick to these delicious cookies!

A Friendship Tea Spell

First Harvest Tea

WELCOME!

Today marks the first harvest as some would also associate this day as Lammas. This is a time of special blessings to family and friends when all come together to share a feast of breads and meal. Before such a gathering, the crops are harvested, and blessed with the energies of man and nature. These blessings are to summon good fortune for the coming Autumn Season.

Today, my husband and I have prepared a meal for two. We will light a blessing candle and share this feast in love and in balance. Last night, I created a dessert to fit the occasion. A delicious banana pudding. And to partake alongside such a scrumptious treat, I made a brew of tea to fill our minds and soul with creative wisdom.

Tis a perfect brew to share with friends and loved ones with some delicious breads and treats.

Creative Wisdom Tea

  • 1/4 cup of pitted Cherries (frozen, fresh, or canned)
  • 1 teaspoon of dried Sage (or 1 tablespoon of fresh)
  • 1 Black Tea bag.
  • slice of Lemon
  • add honey to your liking

*Recipe is per 1 cup.
*It is also delicious over ice, but if one wishes to make it this way, the recipe must be doubled.

Bring the cherries to a boil in a sauce pan, then simmer and steep for about 20-30 minutes. Afterwards, strain the fruit through a sieve, pressing the cherries. Discard the cherries, or do what I love to do and puree them for morning shakes (waste not). Return strained mixture to saucepan and bring to a slow boil. Add sage and tea and allow it to steep away from the heat for 5-10 minutes (the longer it steeps, the stronger the flavor). Strain the sage and tea, and add honey to sweeten and magically blend the brew together. Add a slice of lemon and enjoy!


Every time I brew a tea, I always say a prayer to bless it for the occasion. In this case, the chant was:

In this pot I enchant and brew,
A spell that is pure and true.
I conjure wisdom and creativity,
In this tea that honors the divinity.
As we drink, the magick shall spread.
Creativity and wisdom shall be our friend. 

So, brothers and sisters, have a beautiful first harvest and Lammas! Blessings to one and all!

FIRST HARVEST TEA RECIPE!

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!

Love you and miss you mi familia!

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!

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.


P.S.

Thank you for the love and support!


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!

New Year’s Tea & Incense!

Welcome & Blessings!

Hello, and welcome to my first ever blog post!

My name is Lady Azna Moon.

I’ll be honest, I’m anxious and yet also excited to start this blog. I have been considering starting this for a year now, and after much consideration, and the persuasion from my sister witches; I have begun.

Like all witches; we center our focus on our own individual craft. My craft is grounded around nature, kitchen magick, tarot & divination, and Triple Goddess worship. I especially love to incorporate tea in my spells and rituals. Quite honestly, I love tea so much and blend them for my spells, my sister witches have nicknamed me The Tea Witch.

It is certainly exciting times, and I am looking forward to getting my knowledge and wisdom out to the world.

Thank you all for your interest, and I hope to continue this blog with peace and positive energies.

Blessed Be )0(
