Dream Magic: Dream Pillows and Dream Teas for a Restful Night’s Sleep

Nightmares are no fun. I haven’t had very many of them in my lifetime, thankfully. My sleep tends to be dreamless, and I rarely remember the dreams I do have. But nightmares and restless sleep are a problem for many people, and no one always sleeps easily. Racing thoughts, bad memories, pounding hearts, bad days, even scary movies. Sometimes we need a little help getting some restful sleep and sweet dreams. That’s where dream magic comes in–dream pillows and dream […]

Beauty Spell: Pretty in Pink Princess Smoothie for Love and Beauty

We have a short post today while I work on a couple more articles on the basics of spell work! Today it’s another smoothie potion! Can you tell I love smoothies? This is one I like to do in the afternoons, or for dessert, or on the weekends when I want a little something different for breakfast. It’s great before a date or a night on the town, or before that big presentation at work! This one is a beauty […]

Spellwork Basics: What is a Ward and How does it Work?

First off, my apologies for not posting last Friday. I took the day off work (my job and this blog) to spend with my wife and get some things done for our upcoming wedding (reception)! I’ll be doing a post about wedding magic some time in the near future. 😉 But first, I have another post about some of our witchcraft basics! Last time I wrote a post like this, we talked about the different types of cleansing. Today, we’ll […]

Luck Spell: Easy Green Rice Kitchen Spell for Luck and Prosperity

This rice might be my favorite thing that I make. It’s so simple but so flavorful, and it’s the basis for my amazing burrito bowl recipe. Topped with black or red beans, sauteed or roasted vegetables and avocado? It’s to DIE for. I found a recipe for it years ago, but I’ve lost it since then and it hardly resembles the original to begin with (mine is better :P). But let’s be real, you want to know how to make […]

Witch’s Brew: Healing Homemade Magical Turkey Broth

In case you hadn’t picked it up from my other posts, I love soup. I eat it year long, in sweltering summer heat and in the dead of winter, and soup lends itself so well to witchcraft it’s no wonder I keep at it. It’s just so versatile! One thing I started doing once we moved into our house was making my own broth for soups and stews. It’s cheaper than store bought for one thing, and better for you, […]

Lazy Witchcraft: Doing Spells with Pre-Made Ingredients

There’s really not enough time in the day. Witchcraft can seem daunting when you think you need to spend hours on rituals and spells and recipes. Like I’ve said before, I love cooking from scratch, but I work 40 hours a week so I don’t always have time to grind my own herb mixtures, or slow cook my own tomato sauce or broth. I’m luckier than most that I can do this at all. But sometimes I’m too tired, or […]

Review: Ariel Hart’s Lisa Frank Tarot Cards (Major Arcana)

Time for another review! I’m super excited about this one. This time I’ll be reviewing, or at the very least talking about, a tarot card deck! Lisa Frank tarot cards to be exact. Now to be fair I’m new to tarot card reading and still have a lot to learn, and this is only my second deck, but I’m in love with it and can’t wait to get to know it more. For tarot card reviews I’ll mostly be talking […]

Spellwork Basics: Spell Writing. The Anatomy of a Basic Spell

Previously: What is Cleansing?  Spell writing is as fun as it is challenging. When you write a spell for yourself, you can tailor it to your needs, to what you have, to what you can get your hands on. You can share it with others, of course–I sure do!–but you can also make them deeply personal, and specific to your situation. There are general, accepted meanings of herbs, colors, etc., but personal meanings and associations are just as important, if […]

Easy Witchcraft: Magical Tomato Sauce with Pre-Made Ingredients

Homemade tomato sauce is the best thing ever, but it takes time, and taste-testing, and commitment. If you’re busy, or just tired, it’s not something you can make all the time. I have a great recipe for homemade sauce, but after a long day of work or a long week in general, sometimes it’s easier to just start with a ready-made base. That doesn’t mean it can’t be magical! That’s where easy witchcraft comes in. I’m all about using pre-made […]

Beauty Magic: Beauty Oil for Hair, Skin, Candles and More!

So I’ve already written about a beauty water, now it’s time for a beauty oil! For us natural hair beauties, you can use this to seal your ends after spritzing or conditioning your hair. You can also use it on your skin! Avocado oil has a comedogenic rating of 3, which means it may clog some people’s pores and make them break out, so be wary of using it on your face. This isn’t the case for everyone, though, so […]
