The Ritual of the Bones

When I find a special bird or animal. I will bury it with crystals and other offerings. This is a sign of respect, and honor. I tell the animal's spirit that I will be putting it to rest, and will then be bringing it back up to re-purpose its remains. I have had no trouble with any animal spirit,  but if it doesn't feel right, don't dig it up. When I dig up the bones, instead of doing a peroxide rinse, I place my cauldron on the fire outside, I add sacred herbs, and enter a trance, I let the cauldron come to a light boil and add the bones. I add other offerings of thanks, and hum, sway, and chant. If you are going to use the bones for any ritual purpose you MUST thank the animal, and treat them with the utmost respect. I do not leave the bones in the cauldron too long, I remove the cauldron, let the water cool and retrieve the bones. I set them out with other fresh herbs and crystals to dry, till they are ready. The spirit has been released and honored. The bones ritually consecrated with herbs and water now they can become some of your most powerful and sacred tools. 

Magickal Inks!

Magickal Inks!

There are always shortcuts to things, and I feel like MOST of what is on the pagan market today are easy simple blends and mixes for the Wicca 101. So my intention is to make quality products, for myself, but also for the community! I want products I know another Witch put time and energy into, so that is what I want to give back! I opened my store on etsy last week, and have decided to start out  with inks, there are some other things in the store that were crafted lovingly by me as well! So here are my Magickal Inks!

I started by boiling, beets and rose petals on the stove for the Doves blood. Black Berry, pomegranate buds and seeds, and yellow dock for the Ancestor ink. Lastly beets, bat head root and burdock root also called Bat leaf for the bats blood! Once the dyes started to release, I added several other ingredients. For the Doves blood I added, burned doves feathers, cloves, dragons blood, hibiscus, cassia, gardenia, musk oil, damiena, gum arabic, and several other ingredients which will remain a secret! I let these boil for several hours! For the ancestor ink I added Blood root, life everlasting, yarrow, clove, basil, elder berry, bone dust, walnut and a few other ingredients! For the Bats blood I added gum arabic, cassia, myrrh, and a few other secret ingredients! These all simmered, boiled, and were stirred for several hours, filtered water was added, and then boiled, and stirred some more!

After these started to become opaque, and thicker, they were all strained, the beets taken out and disposed of, all the others herbs were set aside and dried and will be used in incense blends! The smell so amazing! They were then set on the windowsil to cool!
I then capped them, and stored them for a few days! When my bottles arrived, I added vodka, and mixed one more time! Tested them to make sure they color was good, which is was! Then bottled and labeled them! You can truly feel the energy radiating off of them! They are very powerful! SO be careful! They are now on etsy here!
