Oil Infusion

                                          Infused Oils

Now I can only share with you what works for me and as we all know Working the Crafts of the Divine are as unique at time as Snowflakes that fall .  (Some may work for one and not the other )
                                                So these are merely beginner  basics .
In order to become truly educated in the Crafts One must do their homework , 
                                                                    keeps notes and discover what works best for them . 

I suggest learning a bit about carrier oils first and of course the Herbs you wish to work with.
Carrier Oil examples such as:
              Walnut etc . 
Just to name a few .Every ones taste is different . This is way I suggest to you to do research .
* I only use Plant based Oils *
Some oils work well with certain herbs and some do not . This again is where personal preference comes into account as of course the Need because certain herbs help with certain things , such as Lavender works for Relaxation . So do some research and when you are ready and you have your herb/ herbs , and picked your carrier oil/ oils (yes you can blend your carrier oil) and of course a journal / notebook of some sort so you can write down what works ,what you mixed it with and when . This way you will have a Oils section for your Book of Shadows a personal recipe reference of contents and procedure . 
                                                              (An Oils of Shadows if you will )  
When mixing remember it is all personal If your heart is happy with it , it will not fail you . Every one has a different style and different taste and allure to aromas not ever aroma will appeal to everyone .
When you have figured out what you want to create . 
Take your dried herbs or fresh flowers what ever you are using and fill a jar ( any container with a tight fitting lid will do) I suggest to start small. I mean you don't want to fill up a quart jar making an oil infused concoction not knowing the outcome.
                                          So start small maybe use one of those glass baby food jars .
( I make fur baby treats and I have baby food jars some of you may have babies so great small jar with tight fitting lid .)
Fill the container with your herb / flower ( dried are stronger scented ) Fresh flowers tend to be a bit more mild .When your jar is full slowly add your carrier oil to cover Herbs / Flowers cover with lid and gently agitate the contains ( Shake) and place the jar in cool place. ( Some infusions you can set on the windows sill and have the rays from Father Sun shine down upon them, if you have one ) Just check periodically for the aroma you desire . When you have reached the desired aroma simply strain and dis-guard herb/ flower and place infused oil into small jar with tight fitting lid/ cork .
( if you use cork make sure there is space between Oil and Cork other wise it will seep through the cork . )
I do this in some necklaces I make .... Aroma therapy before they came out with the felt inserts for necklaces here are a few infused cooking oils I have done . Same basic principle the only difference in these and essential oil is the amount of herbs/flowers used .
When using citrus such as Lemons, Oranges ,Limes etc.You will use the peel only remove as much of the pith as possible it can be bitter . O kay here are some basics on Oil infusions . So what are you doing still sitting here ......GO Infuse SOME Oil !! (lol)
                                                                    .. Good Peace ...

September 30 2022  after the tropical depression called "Ian" it was a hurricane   Many blessings to you and yours  on this Magical morning .  I can say this especially for those  of you like my charming husband has a birthday day today .   First allow me to say a very𝅘𝅥𝅰𝆕 Happy Birthday𝅘𝅥𝅘𝅥𝅮 too you 💙  but always remember          Every day is magical if you see it to be .  ⛥   Just so you know , or shall I shall  say... ( as I l👀k around to see who else may be listening lol ) Um....? anyone here have a spouse or partner that does not ever seem to want, or need you until you sit  down to write  or create ?   Well , if you don't you should because you are missing out on an incredible experience that  I personally  I believe every spiritual being having a life experience should have at least once while living  their lives and possibly continue to be blessed with .   So , I hope you all survived the storm                                                 OCTOBER 1ST After

My Magic

Merry Meet Readers    I hope you  are all doing well ,  I am just shocked and completely caught of guard .  I have not searched my blog title in a long time and I had no idea that it could be found let alone it was bam in your face . I am like freaking out right now . This caused me to realize that I have not been using my blog as I should be . I have had this domain name for several years now and I was so excited when it was recognized with a secure sight with the ''https'' . I really had no idea . I kind of feel a bit more like I need to share more witchy things from my life .The only thing with that though is I am  a Wiccan , I am  a healer , I am a student of life and guidance to some . I do practice crafting with the Divine daily . The thing is that what I do has become like breathing over the passing of time . I don't think of it as casting any longer it is just daily routine with benefits of a peaceful loving life.  I walk with the Divine daily from my first

Blessed Autumn

                    Happy fall ya'll ,                                           I hope the season finds you all safe and well . Life is going well for me and mine (as far as I know, that is )and life happens, we all live it, unless your inner soda poppy, fizzy self has not yet once again manifested into a another life experience and you are simply reading this tiny blog via the electrical vibes , some say frequency of waves bouncing around the internet world . Well , I mean let us not limit ourselves to a shallow box way of thinking .  Why not? Just a bit of action from infrared camera Let's see (thinking🤔) do you even catch unusual things on your cameras?  Besides catching squiggles on my cameras I am now lowering my cholesterol naturally so I do not have to take medication for it . Now , nothing against taking medications we all have our own way of things   . Mine just happens to be naturally with a lower cholesterol diet and increasing my exercise and of course
