  1. My hair grows sssssoooo fast. Like Rapunzel or some shit. It has been like that my whole life. I can cut off tons and it grows right back where it was to begin with: my waist. It's long, black (with a reddish cast in the sun) and grows at a rate that I have never seen in anyone else. It's bizarre. When I was married I used to let my husband cut it, and he would have to cut inches off every couple of weeks it seemed, just to keep it manageable. It's so thick and long, and it has a total mind of it's own
  2. My mother and I both have those cherry angiomas. I also have a perfectly circular birthmark under my left eye that is about the circumference of a #2 pencil eraser.
  3. Yellow. Says I'm a people pleaser. Funny, that....because I don't give a hot shit if I please anyone but my son
  4. Good ideas spark great actions. Never underestimate them.
  5. http://api.ning.com/files/TywbfJxJdkYjLzg59Tk61W2zetYvw43H4QDMNyGJhC-izH3FMmCFdMZPQHQTGEZuAROhdWxJrGMTwwh2NMgiqpeArNBKNOUU/CelesteRayneHeldstabLlewellynsCompleteFormularyofMagicalOils.pdf This is a link to a pdf version of Llewellyn's Complete Formulary of Magical Oils. The author is from my neck of the woods, Monroe, LA. That is about an hour from me. There is a bit of a Wiccan-y intro (it is a Llewellyn book, they publish a lot of wiccan stuff). But the formulas are pretty solid. It's not very well organized, but there are some good starting points and ideas. I rarely use a formula or recipe straight out of the book, whether it's for magic or cooking. I always tailor it to fit my personal needs. Never have I done a ritual, spell, etc without personalizing it.
  6. Well Benzo'd... LMAO! :roflhard: :abduct: Alakazam, benzodiazapine!!!!
  7. Honey is for bears...love it! Funny, that, because my little boy always wants to watch/read Little Bear when he's sick. Something about Maurice Sendak's writing and the art style, I think, that he loves. It's comforting. Glad to hear he is doing better :)
  8. My baby brother has Asperger's syndrome. The food thing...I get it. The aversion to certain colors, smells and tastes is nothing new to me. Pepper-not just no but hell no. "What are those little black dots all over the food? I cannot eat that!!!" To be honest I am just glad he is talking and interacting with me. So here is my advice: Keep with the calpol. Try maybe a minty ice cream, will he eat green colored things? Mint chocolate chip, maybe? Then sneak things into that. Or a minty milkshake with ice cream and MW's idea of catnip and feverfew, then sneak them into the milkshake. That will feel good on his throat. You may even be able to sneak some honey in, but his taste buds are probably like a sommelier, since he's autistic. May not be worth the fit it could induce, and with him being sick...that would only make him feel worse, leading to more hell...vicious cycle. In my baby brother's case, at least, that's how it would go. But then again, the milky stuff might just make the snot worse. So a minty fruit smoothie, maybe? A catnip-y fruity one? The sore throat and icky tummy combo makes it tough. I don't know. If it were one of mine I'd be trying everything, so I understand. It gets really humid where I live. But my son's doctor is always recommending using a cool-mist humidifier when he's sick, so I put an infusion of menthol and strong lavender in the reservoir for the water on the humidifier, and the herbs help open up his airways. It helps him breathe a little easier if there is a lot of mucus. There is an old hoodoo trick for colds...Take a lock of your baby's hair while he's sick, and butter some bread. Maybe use a bit of cold cuts from the fridge. Dogs can't catch colds, so take the little sandwich and feed it to a black dog, "feeding" them your son's cold. Its been a while for that one, for me anyway. Good luck. Hope he feels better.
  9. Even though Mons isn't around any more, I just now found this post and am pretty grateful for it. I'm not dedicated to Her, but I do love me some primary source documents. I also have a fondness for the play King Lear, since Lear is my son's surname and the origins of the name Lear are pretty obscure. It's also a pretty rare name, as well. His grandfather, my (soon-to-be ex) husband's dad did a fuck-ton of research and found that Shakespeare's play King Lear was one of the first mentions of the name. However, spelling was not made uniform for several centuries after Shakespeare, so it makes the search much harder.
  10. Where I live, bottle trees are more common than just a single witch bottle. We have witch balls hung in and outside, and bottle trees. A bit different. My pops has both. Lots of colored bottles are hung throughout the entirety of a tree, different shapes and sizes, hung from different lengths of cord. I have seen them both upside down and right side up, filled with stuff for protection or other witchy needs, and even hung up empty. It all depends upon the person. They're pretty, I think, and effective.
  11. A lot of us who practice Hoodoo (Aurelian, BWR, myself) use cooking and witchery together a good deal. When I was little I was warned about eating at other people's homes, and my dad really wigged out about me eating red things at other folk's homes. Truthfully, when I want to really catch a man, I make him lasagna. I think I have mentioned this before. I made a nice pineapple upside down cake for Mr. Army's birthday last weekend. Home cooked meals are a good way to deploy things such as philters, without seeming so suspicious as putting some random stuff in someone's drink. Cooking for me (and witchcraft, in general, to be honest) is about the intent and the will. Just like when someone states that something is "cooked with love," that person infused that very dish with the love they feel for those that they are feeding it to. Just the same with witchcraft, or kitchen witchery, or cooking magickally. When making a bread poppet, for example, you infuse the dough as you shape and knead and let it rise with your intent and will. As the bread rises and bakes, one's will grows within the poppet as the yeast propagates and the bread bakes. This is irrespective of the herbs or ingredients. For me, it is all about one's will and intent. Therefore, any recipe can be made magical, based upon how one feels about the act of cooking and the person(s) who will be eating the dish.
  12. Thanks, y'all! It worked for my son's toy box, so i thought I'd use it on my stuff too. :) Glad you guys liked it.
  13. Here's something I did recently that has really worked: I painted my altar (it's an old wooden night table I found at a junk shop, with 2 drawers for storing witchy supplies). I used black chalkboard paint, that way I can mark on it as I choose with sigils and other fun stuff. It's still able to be covered with any cloth I want (it is a table lol), and I can put whatever mark I want onto it as well. When I'm done with a design and want to change the altar for whatever reason, I just erase it. Simple.
  14. Ooooh here's a good (bad) one: A Wiccan Guide to Meditation by Raven Starwind (where do they get these names?!?) I'd rather not think about the me that bought that book. It was a much stupider me.
