Witchy Tip of the Day: Just breathe & pay attention to the lessons of nature.
For centuries, Medicine Men, Shamans and Witches have been offering herbal remedies in sachets to be carried to offer the wearer spiritual or physical protection, through the combination of specific herbs, resins and sometimes crystals. Associated herbs offer different properties to our aura and well-being, helping to promote anything from fertility to curing depression. It is up to the user to value these herbal spirit bags with great respect, knowing that they are serving as a tool to their advancement and happiness, spiritually or physically.
A handcrafted Spirit bag, smudged by the purity of White Sage & made up of over 8 different herbs, resins and crystals, all which carry the highest protective qualities to help ward off any negative vibrations of any kind, offering protection from all directions, tied closed by 3 knots, symbolizing Body, Mind & Spirit. Each Spirit Bag, you will notice to develop a “personality” of it’s own, with the highest vibrational spirits and angels bringing it to life and creating a magickal shield of protection, each and every time it is carried by it’s owner. Once you dedicate this spirit bag for your personal use, it is important to be the only one to possess it. The handling of others may take away some of the magick and personal energy you have put into it. The Protection Spirit bag is good for warding off the Evil Eye, guarding against psychic attacks or Dark Arts, removing negativity or Bad Luck, Raising your Vibrations, Relieving Sickness or Disease, banishing depression, detouring Bad Dreams or Nightmares (If place under pillow), Safe driving (if placed in car), and so much more. You can dedicate this bag for overall protection or to be specific against a particular person or place. It is up to you, as in the process you are harming none, simply asking for a protective bubble.
Before the arrival of the stick incense, traditionally incense was a mixture of hand ground herbs and resins, to help promote healing on physical and spiritual level. Shaman’s, Healer’s, Medicine Men and Witch Doctors all worked with the natural properties of herbs and resins to heal their patients, no matter what the ailment was. From exorcising evil spirits to healing a toothache, they had the remedy to offer. Often the herbs and resins were ground into a fine powder, to help mix and release the aromas once burned over hot charcoals, allowing the smoke to bring forth the ‘magick’ of their work. Through the use of these magickal healing powders, many uses were found. By sprinkling the appropriate blend around the bed, you would remove nightmares and night terrors; steeping certain powders into a tea would help women from cramping; adding a magickal blend to a bath could help heal a sickness; pressing the herbal/ resin blend into a paste could create all natural cone incense, often used in rituals and magickal workings, and the list goes on. I’ve decided to bring this natural practice back by offering special artisan all natural incense powder blends to help you get back into the ancient ways of magick.
CLARO OCULUS : To make clear in the mind’s eye.
Latin: claro : to make bright or clear, make clear in the mind.
oculus : eye.
‘CLARO OCULUS’ is my artisan blend of all natural herbs and resins turned into powder form, charged by Amethyst stone to heighten the magic. With it’s dark, earthy and spicy scent with hints of sour notes from the hibiscus flower, Claro Oculus was created to help heal, awaken and activate the Third Eye (6th chakra) to better promote intuitive wisdom, insight and mental clarity for the user.
BENEDICTIO : Blessing – To Bless
‘BENEDICTIO’ is a my sweet, warm & soothing scent, created from an all natural mixture of herbs and resins ground together into a fine powder. Lavender & Chamomile bring in the loving and peaceful energies, while Lemon and White Copal help to invite in the cheer and delight, all tied together with the serene vibration of Selenite stone. This is a powerful artisan mix to raise your vibrations as you call in the spirits of love to truly put a smile on your face.
‘AMOR’ is a sharp spicey floral scent, made from my artisan blend of red roses, Jasmine flowers, Star Anise, Clove bud and Palo Santo resin, blessed by Rose Quartz for help in love matters, self appreciation, friendship, relationship protection, passion & affection. Love is the most powerful gift we can give anything & this is my gift to you. Working with only the purest energies of love and light, I hope that this blend brings you an abundance of peace and self love, because with these two things you can conquer pretty much anything!
PURGO : to clean, cleanse, purify / clear away, wash off / justify.
‘PURGO’ is a Strong, earthy, fresh & penetrating scent, made from my artisan blend of White Sage, Eucalyptus, Frankincense resin, St. John’s Wort and Elderberry. Charged with Clear Quartz and Onyx, this mix will definitely clear energy in any sacred space, filling it with pure Love & Light. I created this blend to help with purification on all levels, spiritually or mentally. The smoke of these magickal plants work together to cling to the negative vibrations and transform them back into a neutral state, while the frankincense raises the spiritual frequencies to allow for healing and enlightenment. The Clear Quartz and Onyx stones I infuse with this blend, not only help to remove low vibrations, but electromagnetic smog as well, caused by electronics and the like. A highly useful tool to always have handy in your apothecary collection, as it works wonders for consecrations or lifting general bad moods.
The traditional method of burning incense comes from ages ago when holy men and medicine doctors would harvest the natural resins from tress and plants to burn them over hot charcoals, releasing their holistic and metaphysical properties to aid in healing and spiritual advancement. Often these resins were used as an offering to their God(s) during a ritual or ceremony. To this day the Catholic church is still very fond of burning Frankincense & Myrrh to help cleanse and sanctify the church before beginning in prayer or ritual. The smoke tends to billow and travel to the spaces that need it most, we can view this as the notions of spirit doing the work needed to help us in our spiritual advancements.
Although burning resins in a single state is effective and powerful, when you begin to mix them is when the real magick happens. By blending them, you invite in all the elements that each resin brings to the table. Some resins may be closer associated to purification and cleansing, while others are better for working with meditation and divination work. When you blend these two together just like a recipe you now have a powerful blend that will work as a spiritual tool to aid in a safe and deep meditation, helping to keep all distractions and negativity at bay. The natural aroma also tends to trigger certain thoughts, emotions or even memories, as the smoke carries these vibrations to the heavens. This is the power of blending the magickal tools that our beautiful earth has to offer.
When your chakras are out of alignment, you will notice an increase in fatigue, frustration, lack of inspiration and unhealthy habits developing in your life. Why? Because, when one chakra gets thrown out of alignment, it begins to start affecting the other chakras that surround it. For example, if you fall out of a recent relationship that was full of hurt or distrust, it most likely greatly affected your heart chakra, closing it to the world. This closed heart chakra will begin to affect your throat chakra (associated with communication & artistic expression), then your Solar Plexus (business, humor, self control). A Domino effect that is much healthier to stop at the source. When this dis-alignment goes on for months or even years, your overall spiritual connection and aura weaken, allowing in a negative outlook on life further leading to sickness or disease and often, lack of faith.
So make time to meditate at least once a week with my Chakra Cleanse Resin Blend, you will start to align and clear your seven major chakras as well as strengthening your aura and patching up any gaps that allow in harmful spirits that can further drain your energy. Through doing so, you will notice big changes in the smallest, yet important aspects of your life that were previously overlooked. This resin blend also helps with overall healing on the physical plane to promote development on the spiritual plane. Burn this resin blend often in your sacred space to keep the vibrations high.
When life becomes a parade of go-go-go, sometimes we forget the life force inside that is driving us; our soul, leading us to each moment that we encounter, helping us on our current path towards lessons needing to be learned and purposes that desire to be fulfilled. Through divine guidance I have created a special resin blend to help you get back in touch with your soul. By making a practice of using this blend during regular mediation and focusing on your astral experience, you will begin to access the astral planes and travel with your sub-consciousness to better receive your own divine guidance, helping work towards the better you. When we work with our astral body as a vehicle to step out of our physical body, we allow ourselves to truly become one with spirit. With astral travel we allow ourselves to access past lives and heal from them, we allow ourselves to release all the mundane stresses in our current lives and focus in on what truly matters and how we can change any situation, creating abundance and fulfillment in our lives.
By burning this resin blend during your astral meditation practices, you will not only keep your sacred space clear of negativity and aura strong, but it will also promote healing and transition towards your work with in depth spiritual insight. This all natural fragrance gives off a warm, earthy- vanilla scent that will soothe your thoughts and help quiet the mind. There is enough resin in each 1oz. glass corked bottle to last for many uses, as a little goes a very long way and it is traditionally burned over hot charcoal. Once your charcoal is hot, sprinkle some resin over it and allow it to diffuse. Let the magick of the smoke find it’s way to your third eye and crown chakra, letting your thoughts drift into the wave of your sub-conscious knowledge.
As passionate as a soft kiss on the neck, a subtle stoke of the fingers through your hair and a soft whisper in the ear, I present to you a magickal resin blend for the art of seduction. As an art, seduction can take many forms, either through the words you speak or the energy you put out, the goal is to entice your person of choice and lead them as far away from their duties in the mundane as you can, to engage them in pure pleasure. It is a joyous gift that the both shall fully appreciate. With the word deriving from Latin, the literal translation means ‘to lead astray,’ not by force, but through the art of temptation & passionate energy. This intense energy is triggered by the root chakra, where our coiled kundalini energy sleeps until awoken by arousal. The red root chakra is where we hold our sense of survival, connection to earth, greatest joys, natural pleasures, delight in controlling passion, and blissfulness in concentration. We were blessed with this seductive energy, so I encourage you to learn the art of true passion.
Ritual is in our nature, it can be as simple as brushing your teeth upon waking every morning or saying a gratitude prayer every night. Of course, the more thought, intent and heart you put into it, the more power your ritual has. When we take time out of our busy schedules to reflect on our abundance, we are dedicating time to our soul and spirit- and in return we will only gain more. To perform a ritual of desired achievements, we need to set forth all the energy of those thoughts and emotions. We need to leave behind, at least for that moment, everything else that burdens or troubles us, because those are the things that create blockages to our abundance and manifestations. So how do we do this? Through the use of tools for our spiritual health. By burning my ‘Consecrated Ritual’ Resin blend, you create a clear energy environment, where you can start with a clean slate and only bring forth the energy you need. It is a divine blend to inspire positive affirmations, creativity, purification, hopefulness and love, pushing power to your manifestations and goals. A magickal blend for any sacred ritual, circle casting, meditation or ceremony that requires the utmost respect and positive energy. This all natural fragrance gives off a clean crisp & earthy scent that will create positive vibrations wherever it is burned. There is enough resin in each 1oz. glass corked bottle to last for many uses, as a little goes a very long way and it is traditionally burned over hot charcoal. Once your charcoal is hot, sprinkle some resin over it and allow it to diffuse. Let the magick of the smoke fill the heart’s and mind’s of those who are around it with love, compassion, inspiration & desire.
