Been noticing a lot of worrying posts lately,
Particularly among the newer witchblrs, so I feel as though I should say something:
⚠️ PLEASE DO NOT INGEST/CONSUME/SMOKE ANYTHING UNLESS YOU HAVE DONE EXTENSIVE RESEARCH ⚠️
And research that is preferably done off of Tumblr (aka Google it), so you’ll find a wider range of opinions, articles, and thoughts on the matter.
- Certain stones and crystals are toxic when mixed with water/liquids! Big ones include malachite, turquoise, and selenite – but that’s just to name a few!
- Various herbs can interact negatively with medications/the body: St. John’s Wort with birth control or anti depressants (even though it is used to treat depression in small doses), sleepy time herbs are not to be used in conjunction with melatonin or other sleep aids/pills; some herbs can cause liver damage – pennyroyal, valerian, comfrey, etc – if consumed.
- DO NOT JUST SMOKE THINGS because a tumblr said to try it!!! I just saw a post about smoking valerian root – THIS WILL CAUSE A CHEMICAL BURN IN YOUR THROAT AND LUNGS. ⚠️
