Basic Floor Wash

Floor washes are used in witchcraft, not only to psychically clean a space, but to cast magical intentions, as well.  Some of the most common uses are to banish negativity and to protect the home.  Use this basic recipe and add botanicals, either made into a tea from the plant matter or distilled into essential oils, to craft a wash for your specific intent.

Combine:
1/4 cup liquid castile soap
Up to 1/2 cup white, distilled vinegar or freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 gallons warm water

Love Potion (Ritual Oil)

Ritual oils are a staple in any witch’s cupboard.  They’re basically oils infused with botanicals and charged with magical intent.  Use this one for self-love or to invite romance into your life.  Va-va-voom!

Use a mini slow cooker to speed up the process of making infused oils.

Ingredients:

1 oz. dried rose buds (approximately 1 cup)
2 vanilla beans
1 oz. rose hip oil
1 cup olive oil

Directions:

Place the herbs in a slow cooker. Mix both oils together and pour over the herbs. Set the slow cooker to warm and steep for 3 to 5 hours. Strain.  Store in a glass bottle. ❤

Basic Healing Salve

To make a basic healing salve, bring about an inch of water to simmer in a saucepan.  Set a heat-proof bowl to rest inside the saucepan, ensuring the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water.  Place equal parts unrefined coconut oil and raw shea butter into the bowl.  Melt slowly, stirring more or less constantly.

Once completely melted, remove from heat and allow to cool enough that you can safely touch the melted mixture.  (The mixture should be cooled but not yet be set.)  Stir in a few drops of essential oils (a little goes a long way!), depending on your intent for the salve.  (See below for ideas.)  Pour into clean, glass jars and allow to set up in a cool space or in the refrigerator.  Amber-colored glass jars are preferred, as the dark glass tends to protect the properties of the essential oils.

To use, simply apply a small amount of salve to the impacted area as needed.

Some essential oils you can mix into your salve include:

Carrot Seed – for scars, wrinkles
Frankincense – for acne, scars, wrinkles
Geranium – for cuts & bruises
Lavender – for burns
Tea Tree – for acne, cuts
