For Restful Sleep
I’ve been getting a lot of questions about how to ward off insomnia or induce sleep. Hopefully these can help. :)
- 1/2 ounce carrier oil (sweet almond oil, apricot kernel, or olive work well)
- 3 drops lavender
- 12 drops bergamot
- 3 drops cypress
To increase the benefits of your sleep, apply a few drops behind your ears, spreading the excess out over your jawline (you don’t need much, just a little dab will work). Do this immediately before bed. Please do a spot test on the back of your hand to make sure you’re not allergic.
Pouch For A Restful Night
Add these items to a pouch:
- Dried hibiscus
- Chamomile flower
- one small amethyst
Mix all of the above together in a small pouch and charge the pouch. Feel free to add a couple of drops of oil such as lavender, rose geranium, lemon balm or any other oil pertaining to sleep.
- Blue or brown glass jar
- 1/8 cup dried lavender
- 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
- 1/2-3/4 tablespoon ground orris root
After everything is well covered by the orris root, store with a tight fitting lid and keep it near your bedside. When you are having trouble sleeping, take out the jar, uncap it and inhale deeply its sweet aroma. Then set it aside, leaving it open on your bedside table, turn off the lights and sleep.
You can add a piece of moonstone, amethyst, blue lace agate, or blue tourmaline to the mix to make it more effective.
More Things You Can Do:
- Drink Chamomile Tea before bed.
- Can drink Valerian root tea or chew on a Valerian root
- Try to stay on a regular sleep schedule
- Try stress relieving activities such as meditation before bed and during free time
Travel Protection Bottle Charm
In your working space, place a vessel of water, a small container candle, a small besom or feather, and a flat, grounded stone (I used petrified wood). Have a small white taper in reserve nearby. Light the container candle.
Fill small bottle with Traveller’s Luck Powder. Chant while filling:
Water, fire, sky, and ground
May they keep you safe and sound
Cork the bottle and light the reserved candle. Continue chanting while dripping wax from the white taper candle over the cork until the bottle is sealed. Chip away excess wax until there’s just the clean cap.
Brush the bottle with the feather or besom. Recite:
With this broom (or feather), I sweep misfortune away….
Gather the wax scrapings and drop them into the container candle, saying:
…And cast it into the fire.
Take a fingertip of water from the vessel and rub the bottle clean. Recite:
With this water, I wash away away all danger.
Place the bottle on the stone. Recite:
With this stone, I bring you safely home once more.
Leave the bottle on the stone while you make a knotted string basket for it to sit in (or have one ready). Tie the bottle in securely, leaving a tail for hanging. Anoint with scented oil if desired and present to the person you wish to protect.
We wait, starving for moment of high magic to inspire us, but life is a banquet of common enchantment waiting for our alchemist’s eye to notice

Ferguson from my TL
(From what I understand, the police thought they heard a gunshot and started throwing tear gas into the crowd. Correct me if I’m wrong)
This is why I hope the people of Ferguson and neighboring areas don’t give in. The police act as if these aren’t real people with a real cause and we should all recognize why by now. It’s just wrong on every level
You guys want to know why I became a witch? This is why. These movies. After I watched them for the first time, I went to my little fort and mashed a bunch of leaves together into a “potion/salve”, waved around my plastic glitter wand, and ran around chasing faeries around the neighbour’s pond. This movie rekindles my witchy spirit every year.

Dhole (Cuon alpinus)
The dhole, also called the Asiatic wild dog or Indian wild dog, is a species of canid native to South and Southeast Asia. The dholes are classed as endangered by the IUCN, due to ongoing habitat loss, depletion of its prey base, competition from other predators, persecution and possibly diseases from domestic and feral dogs. The dhole is a highly social animal, living in large clans which occasionally split up into small packs to hunt. It primarily preys on medium-sized ungulates, which it hunts by tiring them out in long chases, and kills by disemboweling them. Unlike most social canids (but similar to African wild dogs), dholes let their pups eat first at a kill. Though fearful of humans, dhole packs are bold enough to attack large and dangerous animals such as wild boar, water buffalo, and even tigers.

Please keep this circulating. Cops are getting more and more brazen, know your rights!
good to know
my brother is a police officer and these are all v true and things he made sure i knew but also remember the police can lie lie lie. the best thing, as mentioned, is to yell “i do not consent” repeatedly and hope someone will hear and act as an eyewitness for you
this is super important and we need to circulate this especially with the upcoming chicago raid ?? we need to do everything we can to protect possible victims of police brutality and hate crimes. it is not okay to break the law that goes for the people being arrested and the people arresting. stay safe.
