Meaning of the Ingredients
Of course, recipes for ritual and spell work always contain layers of meaning in their ingredients. Knowing the meaning is important! The symbolic use of natural elements provides foundational support for energy work.
Pumpkin Pie Spice
We never get through October without using this autumn staple.
A combination of the most seasonal baking spices, pumpkin pie spice is autumn in a jar.
Did you even know coffee essential oil was a thing? If you’ve never used this amazing, unbelievable creation in your homemade bath products before, it’s really time to start.
Coffee promotes creative efforts and inspires new ideas.
Many practitioners regard Samhain as the witch’s new year. So, it’s time to retire old ways of thinking and move forward with renewed insight.
Milk represents the nourishing energy that gets us through the coming months of darkness.
Himayalan Pink Salt
