Say NO to Witch School

There were many times in my youth I thought about ‘witch school’ with people who were supposedly reputable, but something always stopped me. Sometime later it would come out that they weren’t so reputable after all. Maferefun to my ancestors for their protection.

say no! to witch schoolI hope you all have had a wonderful long weekend Holiday.

I recently received an email from someone asking if they should attend Witch classes. I do hope you see this post, I attempted to email you a response but continued to get a failure message regarding the email address.

So here I am answering your question as it is a rather common question. My standard response to this is No.

I urge you to ask yourself a few questions before depositing your money and time into a Witch class.

  1. Why do you want to take the class/program/course/whatever?
  2. Do you think it will make you a Witch?
  3. What can they teach you, that you cannot learn for yourself?
  4. What are your expectations of this course?
  5. What do you want to achieve from this course?
  6. What qualifies this person/people to teach this course?

There is sooooo much information out there and…

Witchcraft Altar Water …

witchcraft-altar-water.pngHappy Friday! Hope you have all been enjoying the summer weather, or winter weather depending on the hemisphere.

I posted a video on my Altar Salt recipe and one of the items I used in it was a blessing water and a received messages asking what it was. Its an all purpose altar water, same as the salt. I use it for everything. Yes there are specific oils and all that stuff to use and make which I do. But this is a staple, sort of like making bread… you need flour, water, yeast, salt eggs the basics to make it work. This is part of the basics, at least for me.

The water is made up of several different types of waters that have been collected throughout the year. Unfortunately you can’t make this water tonight, but you can start collecting the water you need now and save it…

Witchcrafting with Burdock Root & Leaf

By Slavic Witch

The Witch & Walnut

Burdock is a staple for me and I use a lot of it in my work. I know it can be consumed however that is not what I use it for.

witchcrafting with burdock root & leafWHEN TO FORAGE & HOW TO CLEAN/DRY BURDOCK ROOT

I would say that 90% of the time I forage for burdock root just as the spring has finally brought all the rain and started to warm the earth. This makes pulling out last seasons root easy…. mostly. You can forage for the root once the leaves have started to come up again later in the spring, but those are very… very… difficult to get out and if you are using it for spell work its okay to use last seasons roots. If you are consuming it, its best to forage them in season and dry them out. There is definitely a difference in flavor. Bring a big shovel, water…

Hi Everyone! I hope you have all been having a great summer so far. Just a really quick post on some wild plants that are blooming like crazy right now and that I’ve picked. There is a lot blooming now, so I will likely do a few posts. However I post regularly on twitter, so you can always check there! I love planning ahead for the colder months and using the whole summer to gather and dry my plants. Anyhow if you want to get out there and start re-stocking, or if you are a beginner……start working on building your supply slowly. Now is the time!

Pine Salt Infusion

Salt infusions are handy to keep around, and pine (or cedar*) is one of our favorites to make.  Both salt and pine are well known for their protective and purifying qualities.  But while salt is feminine and earthy, pine is masculine and tied to the air.  Combining these properties brings balance, creating a spell component that is more powerful then the sum of its parts.  And it’s quick and simple to make. …

The use of Occult Oils have been a part of all various types of magickal practices for thousands of years.  Hoodoo Rootworkers traditionally name their oil compounds for the conditions they are believed to cause or cure.  Oils are used in numerous ways while most often they are rubbed on candles which are then burned in ritual, they are also used to anoint charms, mojo-bags, doorways and window sills of a home or business and can also be added to bath water
