What books do you suggest to learn about using herbs to heal like teas and spells?

thepathofthewise answered:

  • Encyclopedia of magical herbs- Scott Cunningham- A-Z herbs. talks about many herbs,  but doesn’t go so deep into each one. The informations are more along the lines of astrological correspondences and the magical side of these plants. There are several recipes.
  • The complete book of incenses and oil- Scott Cunningham- This is specific for oils and incenses and has recipes to make use of these items.
  • Culpeper’s herbal- Nicolas Culpeper- This books has scientifical information as well as mystical information about the herbs. A good book for healing aligned with astrology.
  • The herb book- John Lust- This book shows the several ways that herbs can be used as cosmetics, medicine, etc… It’s a list of 500 plants
  • Back to eden- Jethro Kless- It informs on the usage of herbs for remedies, teas…
  • Book of magical herbs- Margaret Picton and Michelle Pickering- It talks about the mythology involving herbs, magical side of it, recipes…
  • The master book of herbalism- Paul Byerl- A good book for magical purposes.

10 years of Sam & Dean        Rock, Paper, Scissors 

I love how when Sam & Dean cannot decide who has to do something that they really do not want to do they settle it with rock, paper, scissors—but Dean ALWAYS picks scissors so Sam always wins—except that one time in ‘My Heart Will Go On’ and it was an AU—we knew something was up because Dean NEVER wins, and he won, with scissors. I also love how they do not even have to say they are going to do it, it just happens like in ‘Jump the Shark’ when someone has to go in the vent under Adam’s mom’s bed they just look at each other and know then of course Sam wins because he knows Dean will pick scissors (but doesn’t that mean that Sam always picks rock…)

Creating a sigil


A sigil magick is a symbol that you creat that carries your will. For example in this tutorial the sigil will bring bravery.


1. Write out your intention 

"I will be brave"


2. Remove all repeating letters

W R A V

3. Then simplify the letters into basic shapes 

\ / \ / I C \ /— \ \ /

4. Then put those letters together and make a symbol from them. Make the symbol one that you feel comfortable with. 

— a way to charge your sigil is to have other people look at it, or you can meditate with it, or sleep with it.


-Now from this step, you can do one of many things. 
Fold it up and bury it, Burn it
Rip it to pieces and let the wind carry it off, put it in a river, lake, stream, ect. 
rip it, set it in melted candle wax, put in witch bottle.

And using a sigil can be fun and easy, 

-you can put one on the bottom of your shoe to help with travel. 

- De solve in water (with food safe ink) and use as a elixir 

-make a sigil amulet and ware on a daily basis.

-use it in spells

-use them in your charm pouches 

- burn as offerings

Their are many other uses of sigils , and if you’d like to learn more about the subject I suggest the book: Practical sigil Magic by. Frater U.D.

Fudge recipe on a headstone

I feel like I should make this just to be able to say a dead person taught me how to make it. Maybe I’ll do it for Halloween.

I desperately hope that she spent her entire life telling people that they could have her fudge recipe “over my dead body.”

That last comment is absolutely worth reblogging.
