On Saturday, I led a Kitchen Witch and herbology basics class for CotE.
The bulk of the class was terms and definitions to bring Magick into one’s everyday life.
The latter of the class was dedicated to using herbs to enhance Magick.
I shared the recipe for the sleep spray Witchlette and I make together to help her fall asleep on restless nights and to help prevent bad dreams.
That night, Witchlette noted that her bottle is almost empty and we need to make more. Time got away from us yesterday, so we made it this morning before mama heads out to a studentless workday.
Witchlette and I set up her ingredients in the moter and pestule…
…then set it in a tea ball to steep…
…and here it stayed until it cooled. At that point, we poured it into the sleep spray bottle and it’s ready for the nights ahead.
Since we have lots of spray ready, we will hold onto his to steep for a later date.
The post-steeped ingredients will be placed into the planters to enrich the soil.
One part each, with another pintch each time the ingredient is renamed:
For sleep: chamomile, lavendar, thyme, rosemary
For peace: lavendar
For wishes: sage, sunflower, dandelion
For happiness: lavender, majoram
For purification: bay, chamomile, lavendar, parsley, rosemary, thyme
For success: cinnamon
*I use cinnamon in all my spells
