As a HedgeWitch this is the season that Im at my busiest.It's both time to process what I harvested in the spring and had curing,plus there is a ton to reap ,dry and process now.Above is a basket of some of my recent work; braides ,smudges and a Wheat spiral .Wheat is a wonderful time honoured reagent to use in spells .Wheat contains the spirit of the earth and harvest .It is used in spells asking Gaia's blessings,or for growth and fertility.The braids are quite easy to make and…Continue
Yule is the time of year where you give your best to other people.In my world that means I craft their gifts rather than give out Wallyworld gift cards.So while the bulk of the population are racing around going into debt.Im in the middle of finishing the many Yule presents that I make.I have to tell you this is not just a labor of love…Continue
So its the time of year that all of us put that extra witchy energy into our efforts.As I have said in the past everything a witch makes should be infused with their magical purpose.Every wreath a witch makes should be prepared with a wise eye towards the materials she uses ,and the intent she…Continue
I started gardening in the middle of April. It is now the beginning of summer. The plants currently in the garden are sunflowers, wildflowers, rosemary, sage, lavender, lamb's ear, zion, and hydrangea. I want to get some Jasmine.
The rosemary is slowly dying, and I'll likely cut a few sprigs before it completely dies out. Its needles are sticky and become fragrant when rubbed. It is a medium green and is supposed to get blue flowers, but I haven't gotten to see any yet. According…
I hope you all are well. I have been a little busy this week, I picked up an extra shift at work, we got a new Telemetry system and I had to take two classes to learn everything about it. I just wanted to talk a little bit about the things I have been doing that have been making me feel great. (Besides harvest season, living in a farming community has it advantages, awesome local produce but the allergies I get from the harvest are not so nice)
I mentioned before that I…Continue

Blessings and Welcome!
First off, I just got done making rose water and homemade flea spray and bug repellent for the cats. I ordered a lot of new oils from www.herbco.com I ordered a few empty bottles and a spray nozzle plus essential oils: Lavender, Cedar wood, tea tree, and pennyroyal, and almond carrier oil. I hope to start selling homemade facial scrub, and my rose water on ebay. MAYBE.
The next thing on my going green/life detox is to…Continue
Okay well I will start out by sharing another wonderful helpful website
This is such an informative site. I found it when searching for what to use and how to use chia seeds. There is a wonderful article on there about how the author uses them.
I took the plunge this week and bought soap nuts(a laundry detergent alternative that is all natural), the oils for my cats, chia seeds, huck towels and cloth…Continue
So I'm making plans for my garden. I think my herb garden and my lavender are just going to HAVE to go in pots. The area where I'm moving to has very damp soil because of the mountain behind my house so I'm not going to try growing the delicate stuff in the wet earth. Some things do like it damp so I'm going to research that for my other plants like regular flowers etc. There is a very pretty little tree but I have no idea what it is, I can't wait till it blooms in the spring to find…Continue

Every project has its beginnings and mine for the most part come to me dirt covered and humble.during the spring my buddy Kendal had to pull a few invading 5-6 foot Mulberry trees from his property.Armed with his spade he popped them out of the ground to discover that 3 seasons of drought…Continue
Augh...You know? I love critters, big and small.. not that I'm a big fan of things that buzz and sting (I usually end up running the opposite direction with both arms wiggling in the air.. and screaming).. But ants? I truly am getting tired of them.
A colony of red and black ants has moved into my new herb bed. I'm VERY unhappy as they are making a huge colony right on the side of the circle area and very very close to my Hyssop.... Here you can see some of the herbs (about…Continue
A few days ago a life long friend approached me with a major problem.her husband of many years now well into his seventies was going to under go a procedure to unblock arteries.Mere minuets before he was sedated for the procedure his bi-polar crack addict of a son turned up and caused a huge…

So today Im going to talk about one of the oldest of the witches tools (and a favorite of mine) the Besom.A Besom represents both the Goddess and God.The handle is considered masculine, while the broom part is feminine. Besoms also represent purification, protection, fertility and prosperity. The broom can be used to sweep a sacred space before performing a ritual. This is a purification activity rather than a physical cleaning.Usually the witch will… Continue
