Mabon is Almost Here, Are you Ready?

Most of you know this date as the first day of Autumn! I can always feel the arrival of the new season in my body . I feel the excitement in my solar plexus. I always have a need to clean, clean and clean! It is part of my personal ritual to get ready to welcome the new season. In this case Autumn have always been my favorite season of the year. Not only because Halloween and Thanksgiving are celebrated during this time but it has always been, a feel good special time for me. As I look outside my window I can see the small changes all around!

As my nesting mode kicked in on high gear I decided to journey and ask my helping spirits what would be the best way to get my house in order for the upcoming new season. They were very helpful and they said that I should cleanse my home using the drum and to use water afterwards to invite the good spirits into my home.

Once I was done with my journey I did a little research in my BoS (Book of Shadows) to see what herb or oil I can add to my water to bless my house with once the cleaning was done. I found that I have Tahitian Gardenia infused oil and that Tahitian Gardenia is known to attract  good spirits, provide protection and bring peace, which are all good vibrations and qualities that I welcome in to my home. Tahitian Gardenia is also associated with the element of water, so using water as the mode of delivery was a great idea. I began to brainstorm on the best way to get the oil in the water and so I decided to make a salt to dissolve in the water.

Tahitian Gardenia Home Blessing Salt

  • 1/4 cup of Sea Salt
  • 1/4 cup of Epsom Salt
  • 1/8 cup of Baking Soda
  • 10 drops of Tahitian Gardenia Infused Oil

Mix all of the ingredients in a sandwich bag and store in a tight lid container. When ready to use place 1 tablespoon of the salt in a spray bottle and shake well until it is fully dissolved. Smell it and if it needs a bit more add some more! I prepared mine and left on my altar for 2 days charging before using it. The great thing about making the gardenia salt is that now I can also use it as a bath for myself after I do my own cleansing!

Now I am ready to clean my home! I started by physically cleaning the floors, the bathrooms, the walls, the kitchen, my house was spotless! But it was late at night (around 8pm) and I was concerned about my drumming bothering my neighbors. I had my husband step outside and see if he could hear the drum going and he said you can hear it but muffled. That made me a bit worried but I moved forward and hoping that I would not be visited by the Sheriff! I cleansed my home with my drum for the first time and then I proceeded to bless it with the gardenia water I prepared. My house smelled and felt fabulous!  I really enjoyed cleansing my home this way. Now my home is ready for the new season!

Please! always check further into any ingredient listed in my recipes and make sure that it doesn’t post any health risk to you and your family. My intent with posting them in my blogs is to share with you what I do and how I do it. If you would like to try any of them for yourself make sure you do your research first! If you do end up trying any of them please leave a comment and let me know how it went. 🙂

What do you do to get ready for the upcoming season change? How do you cleanse your home?

Hope to hear from you!

Feeling crafty!

Today when I woke up I heard my magical essential oils calling my name! So I got my household to do’s out of the way and went happily downstairs to get my crafting done!

I got my work area organized, I pulled out my oils and vials and got my BoS. My Book of Shadows is where I keep all my valuable information about herbs, oils, stones that I own and my crafting recipes, now I am ready to go! The first blend that I worked on was a Divination Oil, sometimes when you are going to do a reading it is nice to dab your 3rd Eye with an oil that will enhance your performance by opening you more to receive the messages.

The way I craft in making my own blends is to first look for the qualities that I am looking for in the oils that I currently own (that way I don’t keep buying new ones 🙂 which my hubby is very thankful for. So this is the list of oils that I own that have the qualities that I was looking for:

  • 7 drops  Blood Orange – divination
  • 1 drop    Clove Oil – divination
  • 1 drop    Ginger – power
  • 2 drops  Rose – psychic power, love divination
  • 1 drop    Wormwood – psychic power, calling spirits
  • 3 drops  Sandalwood – protection, spirituality, tension reliever

Now I that I had my oils identified I let my creativity loose. I lined my oils in front of me and I started to craft away! I created my base oil from 3 different base oils, Almond for wisdom, grapeseed for mental powers and Sesame to open my 3rd Eye. I got about 1.5 ml of each then I blended them together.

I started with Blood Orange I placed 3 drops visualizing a successful connection, then I added the Clove Oil with the same intent but the smell was strong so one drop was more than enough! I added Ginger oil visualizing the mixture glowing with power. I added 2 drops of Rose Oil because it smells good but it also has 2 qualities that I wanted to tap in to, so I visualized both combined, me being psychically opened to messages specially when they are in regards t o love. Wormwood Oil has a very strong woodsy scent and though I wanted to call upon 2 qualities one drop was more than enough for me. I visualized being psychically opened and good helpful spirits coming to my aid. Then I added Sandalwood with the intent to call in protection during the reading, bring spirituality and relive any tension that may be present during the reading. So I mixed it and gave it a good smell and it wasn’t quite right so I felt that more blood Orange was needed so I added 4 more drops and then the scent was just right!

My intuition said to add some herbs to the Divination Oil which I chose Mugwort to add more psychic power and protection and Yarrow’s psychic powers and exorcism qualities (so no negative energies stick around). When I craft I like to have a balance of elemental forces and the act of divination alone is of air quality, I am an air sign so the oils and herbs that I chose were all a combination of the absent elements, fire, water and earth.

I repeated the same process one additional time as I crafted a Dream Oil. I love to sleep not only because my body needs to get a good rest but also because that is a time in which I am able to connect with spirit and even visit other worlds. So I wanted to create an oil that I can wear prior to going to sleep that will aid me in my nocturnal journeys! However you don’t want to journey every night, then you won’t be getting enough rest.

Here is my recipe in case you want to try it out for yourself.

Prophetic Dream Oil

  • Almond Base
  • 3 drops of Jasmine – prophetic dreams
  • 1 drop of Rose Oil – stress and tension reliever
  • 4 drops of Lavender – prophetic dreams
  • 1 drop of Rosemary – to drive away nightmares
  • Pinch of Mugwort – prophetic dreams, psychic powers and astral projection
  • Pinch of Vervain – protection, sleep and peace
  • Bud of Jasmine – prophetic dreams
  • Pinch of Angelica – Prophetic dreams, protection and visions

Remember when you craft your oil blends to visualize which quality you want to call upon.

Well I have to go and get dinner done. I hope you have enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed writing it! Let me know if you made these oils and how they have worked for you!

Blessed Be )O(
