You will need:
- One cup of milk
- One quarter cup of honey
- One teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Four drops essential oil of lavender
- Four drops essential oil of chamomile
Warm the milk gently over a low heat and stir in the honey. When they are blended, remove from the heat and add the vanilla extract and essential oils. Disperse the mixture in warm running bath water. For a more luxurious bath experience, increase the quantities, just be sure to maintain the proportions.
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
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.
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.
- Lemon Balm,
Cancer is the nurturer. Nurturing is your business, and you distribute your soothing touch to one and all. There’s nothing you like better than a home that smells good, too, whether it’s because there’s something wonderful simmering on the stove, a vase of fresh flowers on the dining room table, or a warm, fragrant bubble bath waiting for you upstairs. Each of the herbs listed above are known for their ability to calm, (great for when you’re feeling crabby), heal, or bring a wonderful aroma to the environment. Use aloe to soothe burns and scrapes and chamomile for a wonderful bedtime tea.
Add the following ingredients to 1/8 cup of jojoba oil. As you mix the oils, inhale the aroma and visualize the intended purpose for the blend. For best results, use therapeutic grade organic oils instead of synthetics.
- 4 drops Palmarosa
- 1 drop Chamomile
- 1 drop Yarrow
You can wear Cancer oil when the moon is in Cancer, and also when the Sun is in Cancer. If you are a Cancer, wear the blend to increase your personal power.
