WhoopDWhoop

Have you ever hear of WhoopDWhoop?
If you have added me on Twitter, you may have seen me tweeting about it.
WhoopDWhoop is the "currency free creative market place".  Basically, you create and swap or buy items for "Whoops" (similar to forum currency - ie/ pretend money).  I think it's a great way to get your hand-made items known... give it a try... and be sure to check out my listings HERE.

Magickal Herb Friday: Belladonna

Belladonna - also known as Deadly Nightshade - is referred to as a toxic herb; it can be deadly and even fatal if used incorrectly.  Take care when using it in your practices - Keep away from children, pets and familiars!

 This perennial herb has both cosmetic and medicinal purposes.  In early times, it was used cosmetically because the active ingredient, atropine, causes the pupils to dialte, which was thought to be a sexy and alluring attribute in women.  It is believed this is how the name Belladonna came to be, as it means beautiful lady in Italian.  Medicinally, the alkaloids found in this herb help to dry up bodily fluids (breast milk, saliva, perspiration, and mucous) and can aid in gastrointestinal disorders.  It is often used in homeopathic remedies to cure the common cold, earaches, fever, menstrual cramps, sunstroke, toothaches, headaches, sore throats, and boils.

Pluto Incense (Planetary Influence Incense) 
1 part Cypress
1 part Peppermint
1/2 part Eucalyptus
1/2 part Mimosa
Pinch Belladonna leaf

 
Burn to attract its influences.

 
 Remember to always consult a doctor before using any herbal remedies.  Belladonna is an extremely dangerous herb and should only be used under the supervision of a certified medical practitioner.

KWW: Onion Banishing Spell

Banishment spells can be used for a variety of reasons - to rid yourself of an unwanted person, feeling or habit.  I have listed this as a kitchen witch spell because the main ingredient is an onion.  Banishment spells are best preformed during the waning moon.


You will need:
>> an onion
>> pen/paper
>> knife

Upon the paper, write the object of your banishment - for example, your bad habit, three times.
Cut out and hollow a section of the onion.
Taking care not to break or separate the onion, insert your paper into this hole.
"Close" the onion by replacing the cut out section (or outter peel).

Hold the onion in your hands, focusing your will on the object of banishment.
Bury (or burn and bury) the onion OFF of your property to rid yourself of the object of your banishment.

Good luck!

Garden Blessings

image from HERE
With Spring on our doorstep it's always good to give our gardens a little boost.
I posted this as part of my Post-It Note Tuesday post yesterday but the spell was too long for a post-it note... even the shortened version was cut off... so here is the full Garden Blessing Spell that I use each spring.



>> Bless a Spring Garden <<

  • 1 qt of milk
  • seeds or plants
  • 1/2 cup of honey
  • 2 stakes for each garden row
  • 2 qt container
  • pastel ribbon (one for each stake)
  • Small branch with buds on it
Take all the materials outside to the garden. Mix the milk and honey together and pour it into a container.
Place the branch in the container and set it aside.
Poke a stake in the ground at the beginning and end of each row, then sow the seeds and/or set the plants. Tie a ribbon bow around each stake, saying to the seeds & the plants in that row:
"Perfect love, I give to you.
Sprout and thrive with life anew."
Pick up the container and using the branch, asperge the garden with milk and honey
Consecrate it saying:
"Milk and honey flow through out,
Fertilize each seed and sprout.
Maiden, Green Man, dance & play,
Twirl and laugh here everyday.
Bring lush growth and green this spot
Every where you skip and walk."
Water the garden thoroughly and tend to its need each day.

Your Own Divinity...

You don't need the acceptance of others.
You don't need the knowledge of great philosophical concepts.
You have the right to be you, and to express your own divinity by being alive and by loving yourself and others.
