Incorporating Flowers, Herbs, Resins, Roots & Barks into My Witchcraft Thanks to The Lancashire Witch

By Paganism, ThinkingNo Comments

I’ve been a Witch for a long time. I’ve even co-authored a book on magic called SpellCast – Folk Magic for the 21st Century. But those of you who know my Witchy side well, know I’m great with candles, crystals and essential oils. But not so great with flowers, plants and trees.

It isn’t that I don’t like flowers, plants and trees, I do, I just didn’t know much about the magical uses of them in spell work. That was until I started having some good conversations with the Witch herself: The Lancashire Witch.

Yarrow, Star Anise & Oak.

Sally the owner of The Lancashire Witch is a good friend of mine. The Lancashire Witch is a traditional witchcraft shop, both in bricks and mortar in Leyland, Lancashire and online.

The Lancashire Witch sells a wide selection of Herbs, Resins, Roots, Bones, Flowers & Barks. So I’ve started my own collection bought from The Lancashire Witch. Here is my current list of flowers, plants and trees I have in stock at home and their associated magical properties:

  • Aniseed – Protection, Astral Travel, Psychic Abilities, Road Opener.
  • Bay Leaves – Money, Abundance, Success, Love & Healing. Wish Magic & Money.

  • Oak Bark – Success, Stability & Strength.
  • Orange Slices (Dried) – Happiness, Friendship & Prosperity. Clarity & Focus.
  • Rose – Love (Romantic or Self-Love), Healing & Beauty.
  • Rosemary – Wisdom, Love & Aids Sleep.

Health Review: Tisserand Essential Survival Kit & Better Sleep Rollerball Aromatherapys

By Amazon, Health, Nature, Paganism, ReviewsNo Comments

I’ve been struggling with sleep recently. So one morning, feeling like a zombie, I searched for sleep on Amazon. I came across these:


Tisserand Essential Survival Kit includes De-Stress, Sweet Dreams and Energy.

Anyone that knows me, knows that I love essential oils and often have them burning at home.

In the Survival Kit you get:

  • De-Stress (10mls) is made-up of the following essential oils: orange peel, lavender, geranium and patchouli. The fresh smell of orange, along with one of my favorites patchouli makes this my absolute favourite out of all of the bottles I bought.
  • Sweet Dreams (10mls) is made-up of the following essential oils: lavender, sandalwood, bergamot, jasmine and ylang ylang. Unfortunately the smell of lavender overpowers the other scents, meaning that lavender is all you can really smell. This was disappointing as I love the scents sandalwood, jasmine and ylang ylang.
  • Energy (10mls) is made-up of the following essential oils: jojoba, bergamot, lime, orange peel, cypress, grapefruit, coriander and juniper. I loved this pleasant subtle yet addictive scent.

As well as the Survival Kit above I also saw this and bought them both:

  • Sleep Better (10mls) is made-up of the following essential oils: lavender, cedar, cypress, sandalwood, bergamot, jasmine and ylang ylang. Unfortunately the lavender overpowers the other scents, which is a huge shame.

All have rollerballs, with the packaging recommend you apply it on your temples, behind your ears and on the nape of your neck.

I wasn’t sure about the roller ball, but it’s great. You may need to tilt your head or the bottle to get the oil to apply. All I would say is that when it comes to applying the essential oils less is more.

Use the roller ball to apply the oil to your temples, behind your ears and nape of your neck. Then use your first two fingers to massage these points. Don’t use the roller ball to massage these as it will continue to apply oil.

The other great thing is that you can use these in an oil burner easily.

Review soon,
