Let’s make a Money Bowl

Let’s make a money bowl to start off the New Year! With the new year here my only resolution has been to post more and embrace my practice out in the open more. So with this in mind I want to share with you all a few things I am going to start using more in my daily practice. From Poppets, to Cinnamon Rituals on the 1st of the month, to other simple DIY things you can do on your own. Simmer Pots, Money Bowls, and anointing oils, there are so many things for me to share with you all.

Let’s Talk about Poppets

A poppet can be as simple or as elaborate as you like — it all depends on how much time and effort you want to put into it. You can construct one out of just about any material — cloth, clay, wood, wax. Use your imagination! In some magical traditions, it’s believed that the more work you put into it, and the more complex it is, the stronger your link will be to your goal. Because a poppet is a device for sympathetic magic, all of its components will be symbols of what it is you hope to achieve.

You can do your poppet-making as part of the working itself, or it can be made ahead of time so you can use the poppet later on. Which method you choose is really up to you.

Teas for reducing stress and anxiety

One of my “things” that I do to help my body reduce stress and anxiety is that I drink teas, I also drink teas to help reduce inflammation, help with sleep, and with pain. Teas as I have talked about before are an amazing way to boost your health and promote healing. But that is not all they can do 😉 No, teas are a wonderful addition for any herbalist and for practices with divination, healing, and centering. The possibilities are endless with a good tea. I do make some teas that we offer to people, but only by request these days. However, I thought that I might take a moment and share some recipes with you, that you can add into your own practice or just your kitchen.

Intro to Creating Sigils

Many people are interested in learning about sigil magic, including how to charge a sigil, what a sigil is, and how to make one. The process of creating a symbol or image in your subconscious mind to bring a desire to fruition is known as making a sigil. The practice of sigil magic has the potential to elevate your spirituality to new heights. There are a wide range of ways of making sigils which is exquisite on the grounds that you can modify a procedure that turns out best for you!

Make your own Tinctures, Tonics, & Oils

Learn to make your own Oils, Tonics, Infusions and more! As a green witch and a kitchen witch, I often make these for uses around the house. Cleansing, anointing, and for health benefits too, it all depends on what you are looking for.

Quick Whole Wheat Honey Hemp Bread

The smell of this lovely warm bread filled the house with its notes of honey, wheat, & hemp. I got excited about having a slice or two with the stew I had made, and boy I was not disappointed once it was dinner time. This is a rather heavy and dense bread but it is perfect with a stew or even a soup on a chilly day. Its slightly sweet, a touch salty, and best severed warm. It would be amazing with some hemp butter or even honey butter to accent both in the bread… or even some hemp butter with a drizzle of honey as a sweet treat. I am for sure going to have to add this recipe into my Make Again category. It was so simple and very yummy!

Turkish Fried Eggs With Tomato Mozzarella Bread

Crunchy tomato mozzarella bread with warm delicious fried eggs that have a different twist to them. This meal is great for cold evenings, first thing in the morning or even a quick lunch for those who are pressed for time. It is hearty and filling so even the hubs approved of the meal.

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Spice Beignets

We love beignets! it is one of our favorite easy deserts right up there with a good cinnamon roll. We love the warm pillowy plushness of each little Beignet, the airy pockets of spices and the sweet taste of the honey and sugar. It is great to make for a breakfast treat, served with coffee, or even as a mid day snack or an evening desert. There is no wrong time to serve these lovely little pastry delights.

CAULIFLOWER MAC N’ CHEESE

When I say this was amazing, I mean it truly was mind blowing how good this turned out. It was creamy, melty, warm, and comforting just like a pot of homemade mac n cheese should be. This is on our make again list for sure!

EASY Pierogi Skillet

We all enjoy a good crispy and warm pierogi, so when I saw this recipe I knew we had to give a try. Its simple, easy, and would be a great one to teach young children to make or even for a college student on a budget. With the meat, veggies, cheese, and warm pierogis is a hearty and satisfying meal that could easily make it on to anyone make again list. I know it did for us! We really enjoyed not only how easy it was but how good it was too.
