When it comes to helping your physical body it is thought that it is an all purpose healing stone. It is said that aquamarine is good to have around if you are pregnant as it helps protect the mother and baby from harm. It is also said to help protect the fetus and prevent miscarriages. Aquamarine is also great for a sore throat or you can use to to complement any treatments for thyroid problems and swollen glands. If you are experiencing aching muscles or tired bones you can try sleeping with aquamarine in the same room as you or under your pillow, or you could hold it over/on the source of the pain for a duration of time.

When it comes to the chakras you can use aquamarine to help heal the throat and the heart chakra. Which chakra your personal aquamarine crystal will be best for healing is dependent on the hues of colour it has. If your aquamarine has more blue tones then it may be better fit for the throat chakra, if it is more green then it may be better suited for the heart chakra.

Basil is a pretty popular herb in witchcraft as it can be used for many different workings. It is very popular in Greece for numerous reasons. Obviously it is delicious but they also keep it in their home for protection. When basil is put in your house it is thought to bless everyone in it and it keeps unwanted spirits away as well. Basil very well be the most powerful at doing this compared to all other herbs. It is common for Christian churches to use basil to “make” their holy water. Water infused with basil is thought to be able to keep demons away and bless anything anointed with it.

Basil is also very handy when it comes to spell work. You can use it for protection spells, money spells, love spells, and beauty spells.

Citrine

Natural citrine does not hold on to negative energies but rather dissipates it. This makes citrine a great protective crystal. It is one of two crystals that doesn’t need to be cleared or cleansed. This stone promotes imagination and creativity.

This crystal is most known for bringing money your way and also maintaining said money. It attracts wealth, prosperity, and all things good. It is also a crystal that encourages you to be of goodwill and makes you more generous with sharing your wealth.

This crystal is also known for helping people in their professions. It helps interactions for those in sales and other similar financial careers. It is fortifying for those in healing careers and stimulates work in government fields. It also boosts creativity for those who are artists.

If you are having interpersonal relationship problems with family, friends, partners, you name it, then this is a great crystal for you. It helps smooth out conflict and promotes solutions.

If you carry this crystal around it will bring love and happiness to you. It will also shield you from those who would otherwise break your heart.

This crystal with its yellow hue is great for balancing the naval/solar plexus chakra as well.

Despite all these amazing traits of citrine it is not recommended for those with a temper because it can amplify that emotion and make one aggressive. It should also be avoided if you are one to slander or gossip.

Car Protection Spell

Hello everyone! On the last full moon I decided that I wanted to create a spell bag for my car. I get really bad road anxiety and thought maybe this will help calm my nerves. So below is the spell I made. *disclaimer* I didn’t make up the words however. I found them on pinterest.

Ingredients:

  1. A little cloth or mesh bag
  2. Cinnamon for protection
  3. Ginger to make the spell more powerful
  4. Sage for protection
  5. Salt for protection
  6. Black tourmaline for protection
  7. Clear quartz to boost the spell
  8. Rose Quartz because it is my favourite and brings me peace (sub with your favourite or ignore)
  9. Reiki symbol for protection (if you aren’t trained in reiki feel free to skip this one or put in another sigil)

7. Sigil sewn to outside of bag for protection

 

 

 

Steps:

  1. Create a sacred circle using your preferred method (I use sage and my athame)
  2. Call upon your desired gods and goddesses to help you (I called on Hercules and Gaia), air (for safe travels), and fire (to power the spell)
  3. Sew on the sigil
  4. As you fill the bag with your ingredients chant:

On this night, I invoke the powers of fire and air (add names of gods and goddesses if you like) to protect me from all that would harm me, whether physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually.

5. Now you are done creating the bag. Bring the bag to your car and tie it to your rearview window with three knots. (You could also just tie the knots and then put the bag in the glove compartment) As you tie the knots say:

With each knot, I bind this spell

Safety, protection, all is well

Sheltered and shielded, this vehicle shall be

Three times three, SO MOTE IT BE!

I hope you get some use out of my spell. Let me know what you think of it in the comments along with any other thoughts or questions.

Cilantro/Coriander

cilantro-coriander-600x397.jpg

Cilantro and coriander come from the same plant and depending on where you are from are used interchangeably so for the sake of this post I will treat them as the same thing.

Cilantro has many magickal uses, the main one being love. Some of the other uses of it is for clairvoyance, divination, fertility, gain, health, healing, keeping secrets, passion, peace, protection, retention, and weddings.

Cilantro is associated with the planet mars, masculine energy, and the element of fire.

When used in spells it is great for love sachets and spells (remember though love spells have to be worded in a way that manipulates no ones personal will). You can add the powder of the seeds to wine to make a potion of lust (red wine would likely be best for this), you can hang in the home for protection, and you can use it crushed in drinks (like the wine) or in incense if you want to burn it). If you celebrate the great rite this is great to add to an elixir for your celebration. You can also through this instead of rice at a handfasting or add it to the handfasting cake.

If you like to use herbs to help with illness cilantro/coriander is best used for these ailments: digestive complications such as dyspepsia, stomachache, loss of appetite, and flatulence. I personally would brew a tea with cilantro/coriander in it to help relieve these issues.
