It’s bug season! We put together this helpful chart with the many effective plant oils categorized by the particular bug they repel. This is not a complete list of ALL EO oils – feel free to weigh in with your fave EOs in the comments! A word of caution when using essential oils: they should always be used with a carrier product because of their volatility. Carrier products are other oils such as extra virgin olive oil, sunflower oil, apricot kernel oil, unscented lotions, etc. Some EOs should not be applied to children or to pregnant women so, as always, please do additional research. We also recommend seeking out brands who use sustainable harvesting practices. @MountainRoseHerbs has a good selection of essential oils, which we recommend! .

Here’s a simple recipe from the blog for crafting a bug repellent: .

Combine the following in a 2-ounce bottle:

4 tablespoons of distilled water
2 teaspoons of vodka
5-6 drops of your favorite EO or combination or try the Thieves combination of sage, rosemary, thyme, lavender, and mint.
Shake well before each use.
Spritz this on your clothes and hair. Not for use on skin. .

As many of my longtime followers can probably attest, I have a long history of insomnia that doesn’t seem totally resolved yet. I don’t have all the materials for this Wicca-based spell, but I think I’m going to try to acquire them, because I seriously think I could use the help!

You will need a sprig of lavender, a piece of smoky quartz, and a blank piece of parchment alongside something you can write with. I’m sure most of you are familiar with lavender’s properties of aiding sleep, but smoky quartz also has a very soothing effect, so it’s a two-pronged attack of relaxation!

Prior to casting your spell, you’re going to want to prepare your bedroom for sleeping well. Clean linens, dim lights, and as quiet a space as possible will all help. If you want to involve a little bit of feng shui, try making sure that the closet door is closed and there’s nothing under your bed. 

Then, while sitting on the bed (and avoiding sitting on the pillow you’ll be sleeping on), hold the smoky quartz and sink your consciousness into your body. Meditate and feel yourself embracing the crystal’s calming energy, even as you let your worries drift away. When you’re suitably grounded, chant the following incantation while holding the stone in your right hand and rotating your wrist clockwise:

The Moon is up,

I hold its piece

The silver dust

Will guard my peace

Once you’ve done this, wrap the smoky quartz and lavender sprig in the parchment and lay them beside your bed. Now, bear in mind that, like anything else, spellcraft requires practice. Some spells don’t take the first time, and you may need to keep trying for up to three nights. From what I’ve read, though, this spell is well worth your patience!

Sleep well, and may the Tree of Life shelter you all!

A long time ago, I mentioned the process of making a crystal elixir. Well, I’ve finally made one using my amethyst! It tasted pretty funny, but I had a really fun idea besides drinking it: to use it in my scent diffuser! I’m currently using it to disperse lavender oil!

I cast a protection spell for a friend in a dangerous situation yesterday! I sprinkled a circle of lavender flower, lemon balm, and spearmint leaf (lavender and lemon balm both have protective qualities, and spearmint leaf seems to augment other agents) in the bottom of a small bowl, before setting a black candle up in the center! I lit the candle, then dripped some of the melting wax to make a place to stick it so it stood upright safely. Then, I held my obsidian arrowhead while visualizing an archer shooting down anything which could threaten my friend, and uttered an incantation.

Fall once, Spring rain.

Flash twice, Summer lightning.

Rage thrice, Autumn wind.

Sound at last, Winter thunder.

That’s roughly how I started it, but I forgot the rest!

I’ve wanted to cast a proper sleep/dream spell for a while, and enchant one of my talismans to help me attract more vivid, lucid dreams. I think that tonight, I’m going to bathe myself with mugwort, then arrange a purple candle, my sodalite, my amethyst, my sleep spell bottle, some quartz crystals, and my talisman on my altar. I’ll sprinkle some lavender, chamomile flower, and leftover mugwort in a circle around the candle, then light it at dusk after casting my circle. I’ll invoke a few gods of the night and dreams, as well as the Bear Totem, and prepare my talisman(s) to help me sleep and dream better at night. I actually read some very interesting things about the bear that I plan to make a post about!

Crystal Herbalism – Reclaim Your Bliss Tea

There is a magic to knowing when to tend to the Self, an ancient vibe to nurture. It’s with that intuitive tide that our need to care for our bodies becomes a priority. Loving ourselves is a cycle of reflection, acceptance, and growth. It’s a divine notion that our bodies are creations of earth, a personal ecosystem. Bones, blood, breath, water. Roses blush, the breeze crisp. We inhale the organic world around us. This floral tea gives you the time to honor yourself. To feel, to embrace your body as a sacred space. A divine temple of self.

  • Chamomile: cleansing, protection, and wards off negativity. This golden herbs also relaxes the nervous system, calms mind, eases headaches and insomnia.
  • Pink Rose Petals: awakens courage, blooms empowerment, grounds gratitude, peace, and self-love. Rose Petals in tea can help nourish the skin and boost the immune system.
  • Lavender: a soft shade of purple the embodies feminine compassion, activates the crown & third eye chakra, and strengthens the intuitive soul. Lavender is known to ease stress, reduce inflammation, promotes a restful sleep, and improves the mood.

*I have used this tea blend to heal menstrual cramps and ease stress.


Crystal Herbalism 

Tara is a Buddhist Goddess that was formed from a tear which fell gracefully to the ground and formed a lake. Out of the silken blue waters rose up a lotus, and her Tara emerged.

Tara is a protector, a mother of all goddess, and a healer. She helps you overcome obstacles, manifest goals, spark creativity, and find peaceful flow in your journey. Tara is connected to the energy of water and the earth.

I have been working with Tara and her energy to find that she brings clarity to situations where you feel emotionally blocked, she provides compassion to help you overcome struggle, she also allows you to find strength within your spiritual path. Tara provides protection during your earthly and spiritual travels.

Take time and connect with Tara as you sip the tea and mediate with your crystals. Feel the river of her peaceful energy flow through you.
