No, this isn’t to banish unwanted bitches, it’s to banish – or rather, ground out and transform into peace – negative feelings you yourself have, usually at work or in other circumstances where your anxiety level and desire to choke someone bare-handed rise as does your blood pressure. I keep a jar of this stuff in my desk and inhale its scent to alleviate bad moods, surliness, PMS, and other I-hate-my-species feelings.

Items you will need:

  • Peppermint leaf
  • Peppermint oil
  • Lavender buds
  • Lavender oil
  • Pinch of catnip
  • Chamomile flowers
  • Pinch of amber powder
  • Pinch of sandalwood powder (big pinch)
  • 3 drops honeysuckle oil
  • Rosemary needles
  • Several dried rose petals
  • Rose quartz chips or a chunk of rose quartz that will fit in the bottom of whatever jar you want to use
  • Pinch of cinnamon or apple pie spice blend

Instructions:

Blend all the ingredients together and grind into a mush, using the essential oils to intensify the smell and bind everything together so it’s moist and pasty. If you can’t find amber powder add a little more sandalwood. When it’s completely mixed, store in a jar.

When you feel the bitch starting to come out open the jar and smell it for a few seconds.Always keep the lid on when not in use.

Searing hot temperatures have a way of sapping the energy right out from one’s body. The following energy potion can help replace this lost energy. Brew pinches of mint and ginseng herbs along with a green tea bag. Steep for three minutes. Strain and serve over ice with lemon slices for a refreshing tonic.

In addition, you may wish to take Solomon’s seal, Gotu Kola, and myrrh herbal supplement tablets to rev up flagging energy levels. Once restored, seal the energy inside the body by taking a cool shower and rubbing a rosewater and glycerin solution into wet skin. As you do so, visualize the energy vibrating just below the skin’s surface. Carry this vision with you throughout the day. Most importantly, make sure to drink plenty of water to keep the body hydrated and functioning at its highest level.

Here we have a tried and true invisibility powder for when you don’t want to be seen. For best results, this powder should be created at night during the Dark Moon.

In a mortar and pestle, grind together:

  • 1 part Fern leaf, dried
  • 1 part Poppy seeds

Add:

  • 2 parts Slippery Elm powder
  • 1 part Myrrh
  • 1 part Marjoram, dried
  • 3 parts Dillweed, fresh if possible

Grind all together, mixing well. Add 9 drops almond tincture (almond cooking extract is great.) with enough spring water to make everything barely moist, and mix in well.

Place in a ceramic bowl, spreading as thinly as possible, and dry the mixture over low heat, stirring it occasionally, until it seems lightly browned. Pour back into mortar, and grind again, enchanting:

Things Seen, and Things Not Seen:
Let me walk here in between.

When finely powdered, store in a clear glass container. It will keep its power for years. Sprinkle, just a little bit, on yourself, objects, or in a place to be made invisible.

  • 4 parts Rosemary
  • 3 parts Juniper
  • 2 parts Bay
  • 1 part Mugwort

Once you’ve gathered the ingredients, put them in a large mixing bowl and mix with your hands. Place a handful or so in a large square of muslin or other porous fabric and tie up the ends. Add this to your bath. To save time, make several bath sachets and store them in a jar with a tight lid until needed.

If you prefer showers to a bath, simply tie the herbs in a washcloth and scrub yourself with the mixture after your regular shower and before toweling.
