This incense formula may be used in your rituals to destroy an enemy’s power to harm you. Can also be used as an “Uncrossing Incense”.

  • 1 oz powdered Sandalwood
  • 1/2 oz powdered Bay leaves
  • 1/2 oz powdered Dill seed
  • 1 tsp Asafoetida
  • 1/4 tsp Saltpeter
  • 1 dram Uncrossing Oil
  • 2 drams of tincture of Benzoin

Powder all the solid ingredients and mix them well with your mortar and pestle. Mix all the liquid ingredients and dissolve the saltpeter in them. Slowly add the liquid ingredients to your powdered herbs. Spread in a tin pan or plastic container and allow to dry for 30 minutes to an hour.

When dry, simply crumble up and you have your incense. The traditional method of burning this type of incense is by placing it on a hot charcoal in your incense burner.

goat's milk homemade soap bath bar

  • 1 cup grated unscented soap
  • ¼ cup hot water
  • 1 Tbsp. Apricot oil
  • 1 Tbsp. Angelica
  • ½ Tbsp. crushed Bay
  • ½ Tbsp. crushed Basil
  • 6 drops Myrrh oil

Place grated soap in a heat-proof non-metallic container and add the hot water and apricot oil. Leave until it is cool enough to handle, and then mix together with your hands. If the soap is floating on the water, add more soap. Leave to sit for 10 minutes, mixing occasionally, until the soap is soft and mushy.

Once the soap, water, and oil are blended completely, add the dry ingredients. Once the mixture is cool, then add the essential oils (essential oils evaporate quickly in heat). Enough essential oils should be added to overcome the original scent of the soap.

Blend thoroughly and then divide the soap mixture into four to six pieces. Squeeze the soaps, removing as much excess water as possible into the shape you desire, and tie in a cheesecloth. Hang in a warm, dry place until the soap is completely hard and dry.

Herbs can be mixed and combined to produce a “recipe” that’s just right for each of us. Since the Sun sign you were born under has such an amazing influence on your health and well-being, using the herbs that correspond with that sign alone can be a tremendous help in times of stress or illness. Here’s a short list of herbs that seem to be tailor-made due to their associations with both the planetary ruler and the positive qualities of this sign.

  • Aloe,
  • Bay,
  • Cotton,
  • Eucalyptus,
  • Lavender,
  • Norfolk Island Pine,
  • Rue.

As the most sensitive and psychic of all signs, Pisces is the one that requires help to ward off the adverse thoughts and intentions of others. Since you have no boundaries to keep you separate from others, you also need protection against negative influences. To that end, use Rue, a powerful herb known to ward off ills of every kind. To stay positive and healthy keep a Lavender plant growing either outside or inside your home.

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.
