Brand New Herbal Oils

Just added to the shop the other day, these freshly made herbal oils are only $5 each for a 1/2 oz bottle! Each oil was made with organic herbs and resins gently heat-infused in light extra virgin olive oil and then strained, with a small amount of essential oil added to help preserve freshness. Made in very tiny batches with love, care, and intention!

How to fail at slurs

I love this post for many reasons, but my primary takeaway from it is that people on the asexual spectrum (at least according to some interpretations) qualify as queer.

I am a cis female involved with another cis female in a romantic but NOT sexual partnership, BUT my preference regarding sexual partner is male (and I am in a long-term committed relationship with a spirit/deity). HOWEVER, I am also demisexual, which is on the asexual spectrum. (I only become sexually or romantically attracted to someone if there is a strong, secure, and established–over a fairly long period of time–emotional bond.)

I had NO idea that this potentially qualified me as queer (by some standards; by others I might not be “queer enough,”), but ya know what? YIPPEE!!!! Why the fuck not? Its not like I’m part of the consensus culture in any other way, anyhow. Sign me up for Rainbowtru!!!!

Busy Nurse Research

This is sort of related to earlier posts on the use of the word “queer” and sort of not. Mostly not. In fact, it’s actually more like the complete opposite. But since my “mind palace”* looks a bit more like the inside of Hogwarts, what with the moving staircases and magically appearing and disappearing rooms, it feels connected enough to me to say a bit about it. In fact, I think one of those mental staircases can even tie this back to Queer Health.

A bit of background is in order, because unless you happen to be plugged into the Polytheist Discourse corners of the internet (or know someone who is) this will probably all sound Greek to you.  Well, more likely Old Norse.  That will eventually make sense.  There has been some gatekeeping going on among various sorts of Pagans, not so much about who does/doesn’t fit under the…

Price Break: Botanical Herbs

il_570xN.1013308062_6gxa

Just a quick heads-up that all of the botanical dried herb packets in my shop have been marked down to only $2 each (a 50% discount from their original price of $4 each)). Each packet holds between 1/2 oz and 1.2 oz of botanical goodness that can be used for spell work, as offerings, or as an herbal tea ingredient. You can browse the full selection of herbs I have in stock at my shop here.  Please also keep in mind that, considering that I now have a number of very low-priced items, I am enforcing a $5 order minimum–thank you for understanding!❤

I have also listed some brand new herbal oils today, along with several new necklaces (including pearls hand knotted on leather)!

Weekly Update: 21 August

Look! My Polytheism (mypolytheism.wordpress.com) is already getting press! Woohooo! Let’s keep the sharing going!

GODS & RADICALS

Consider yourself a polytheist but becoming increasingly alienated from the authoritarian push of some self-appointed leaders? There’s a new series of writing from folks who will inspire you.  “My Polytheism” began a few weeks ago, and there’s been quite a lot of diverse writing already which the site is compiling.   From the intro page:

This is the common ground our communities need to be built around. Not same-ness. Not dogma. Not gate-keeping. Hospitality.

Gods&Radicals co-founder Alley Valkyrie and treasurer Syren Nagakyrie have also contributed (Note–Gods&Radicals isn’t affiliated with this, but thinks it’s awesome!!!).

And speaking of Polytheism, here are the notes for Ryan Smith’s presentation at Many Gods West on the ‘Future of Polytheism.’

Look later this week for an editorial from Rhyd Wildermuth on these subjects.

We mentioned the struggle to stop the pipeline on First Nations land last week. As of this posting, it’s been paused

Price Break: Herbal Oils

IMG_6929

Great news: All of the Alchemical Herbal Oils still available in my shop are now ON SALE! (They were $15 per 1/2 oz  bottle and are now $10 each.) These oils are still perfectly fresh, as I only made them all about two months ago, BUT I would like to keep them moving. This week I’m working on some new ones and thought it was a good time to offer a price reduction on the existing stock. So, get them while they last!

Here’s what’s still available as of this post:

Ancestors: For communicating with your ancestors or body or spirit, and honoring the dead. Rosemary leaf, sage leaf, and roses infused into light extra virgin olive oil with pure essential oils of myrrh and cypress added, and charged with jet and the rune Hagalaz.

Protection: To ward yourself, your home, and your immediate surroundings against the evil eye, ill-wishers, negativity, and psychic attack. Dragon’s blood resin and agrimony leaf infused into light extra virgin olive oil with pure essential oils of clove and sandalwood added, and charged with citrine and the rune Algiz.

Hearth: To surround yourself with a feeling of contentment and security, of being in your own inner sanctum. Sweet cinnamon bark, basil leaf, and lavender buds infused into light extra virgin olive oil with pure essential oils of clove, patchouli and lavender added, and charged with blue lace agate and the runes Othala and Kenaz.

Love: To attract love, affection, romance, and friendship into your life, as well as to pamper your “inner child” and learn to love yourself better. Rose petals and vanilla bean infused into light extra virgin olive oil with pure essential oils of geranium and sandalwood added, and charged with rose quartz and the runes Wunjo and Nauthiz.

Inspiration: To bust through those mental cobwebs and open yourself to a flow of new ideas, words (this blend is great for writers!) and creativity. Mugwort leaf, juniper berries and peppermint leaf infused into light extra virgin olive oil with pure essential oils of juniper berry and peppermint added, and charged with labradorite and the rune Ansuz.

Passion:  To invite lust, passion and sensuality, to draw others to you for the sake of attraction and mutual pleasure, and to awaken (or re-awaken) your own lust and enthusiasm for life and your creative spark. Hibiscus flowers, strawberry leaf, and sweet cinnamon bark infused into light extra virgin olive oil with pure essential oils of cacao and patchouli added, and charged with garnet and the runes Fehu and Wunjo.

Grounding: Use this oil when you need to feel deeply rooted in the earth, in the soil, and in your own body, solidly connected to the planet and present in the here and now. Sage leaf and lavender buds infused into light extra virgin olive oil with pure essential oils of lavender, patchouli, and sandalwood added, and charged with red jasper and the rune Othala.

My herbal oils can be worn as a body oil, used to dress candles, added to your bath, used in oil burners, or used as an anointing oil during ritual. They contain NO fragrance oils or artificial ingredients.
