Our very last Corbie-related GoFundMe Campaign

This will be our very last Corbie-related fundraising effort, for obvious reasons. But as Jo explains in the updated story, we were falling behind on bills even before his death, due to her own medical expenses, emergency dental work for me, and some bloodwork we had done for him a couple of months ago. We are so very, very tired of having to tread water financially, especially now on top of grieving his loss. Please help if you can, or share if you can’t personally afford to donate anything (which, believe me, we totally understand).

You can check out the campaign here. Thank you! ❤

Deity Teas in the Shop!

I now have four devotional deity teas available in my Etsy shop, as well as one more fandom tea. More of both are on the way, since I’m discovering that blending (and drinking!) my own tea is something I really enjoy doing. (It’s also a nice distraction right now.)

For those of you who may be wondering “Why tea all of a sudden?”–it isn’t sudden, it’s something I’ve been thinking of doing for about a year now and recently just decided why not? I figure if they’re successful I will have found a new direction for my home business efforts, and if not I’ll be drinking a lot of delicious tea! Not much risk, either way.

Also, I don’t talk about this a whole lot, but the same day job experience that makes me good at blending scents also led to an interest (and hopefully aptitude) in blending teas.  For seven years, I worked in customer service for a rather well-known organic herb company. While I won’t pretend I always loved said job, I did pick up some pretty valuable skills while there–not only my mad dedication to customer satisfaction (which has led to 3500 Etsy sales and counting), but also a solid working knowledge of herbs, which has become central to my witchcraft practice. As part of my job, I was able to sample and practice blending hundreds of different herbs and essential oils to create my own self-inspired custom tea blends and natural fragrances on the fly–all for the purpose of being better able to serve the company’s clientele.

Now, I am putting all of that working knowledge and hands-on experience to use in serving MY customers, by crafting a line of scented products and delicious teas that I am quite proud of thus far, if I do say so myself! Whether you’re looking for magical or deity-related blends or something celebrating your favorite fandom, I hope I’ll be able to provide what you’re searching for. (And if not, feel free to ask; I’m always open to considering custom orders, provided I have the option of adding the finished product to my inventory.)

But on to the new teas! (Also, just to be clear: all of these can be enjoyed simply as delicious beverages; they have not been consecrated to Anyone, though that is certainly something you could do if you want to use them as an offering.)

odin tea listing

I’m guessing this is one a lot of you have been waiting for! This blend is dark and complex, like the Old Man himself! Smooth, malty Assam is cooled with peppermint, then rounded out and sweetened with a sprinkling of vanilla bean and white chocolate chips, and given a sophisticated edge with juniper berries, white peppercorns, and a whisper of natural rum flavoring.

Makes a fitting offering to Odin, a welcome libation for his travels–or, you can share it with him in ritual or meditation. Also makes a bracing morning drink; enjoy a cup to fortify yourself before setting off on chilly winter adventures!

frigg tea listing

My possibly unpopular opinion: I hate green tea. But I LOVE yerba mate, with its lush earthy green flavor and fragrance. Somehow, it manages to taste and smell like the forest itself, after a quenching, restorative rain. Energizing and anti-oxidant rich, this premium organic unsmoked yerba mate is sweetened with blueberries, organic lavender, organic coconut, and organic vanilla bean, while organic lemongrass and freshly dried lemon slices provide just the right amount of tartness for this refreshing, enlivening brew.

Healthy and delicious, this invigorating tea makes a wonderful offering to Frigg, Queen of Asgard, who wants everyone under her care to be at their very best–or, you can share it with her in ritual or meditation. Also makes a delicious morning libation to start your day, or a yummy afternoon pick-me-up!

freyja tea listing

A lush, luxuriant tea worthy of the Lady herself! Full-bodied, nutty organic rooibos is sweetened with an abundance of cherries and organic rose petals, then mellowed with organic vanilla bean and finished off with the caramel-amber flavor of butterscotch chips.

This delectable dessert tea makes a pleasing offering to Freyja, who loves roses and all things sweet and alluring–or, you can share it with her in ritual or meditation. Also makes a delicious treat for a blustery afternoon or evening. (Excellent with a bit of sugar and a dollop of cream–yum!)

loki tea listing

Like Loki himself, this one packs a punch! Full-bodied, nutty organic rooibos is spiced up with organic ginger, organic sweet cinnamon, organic cardamom, and organic pink peppercorns, then sweetened with cranberries and freshly dried tart apples and finished off with a sprinkling of safflower petals (reminiscent of Loki’s hair). A rich, spicy-sweet, fruity chai that’s sure to please you and the Trickster both! (Excellent with sugar and a dollop of cream!)

Makes a fitting offering to Loki, who adores spicy food and drink–or, you can share it with him in ritual or meditation. Also makes a warming treat for a blustery afternoon or evening.

And for Narnia fans in search of a scrumptious black tea…

mr tumnus tea listing

As I’ve mentioned before, in childhood, I was Narnia-obsessed (I’m talking about the books, here; the movies weren’t even a twinkle in anyone’s eye yet). I was especially fond of the youngest Pevensie sibling, Lucy (who was at the time closest to my own age). And who could forget her first trip to Narnia and her fateful meeting with Mr. Tumnus the faun, who lured her into a soporific state by plying her with tea, sardine sandwiches, and sugar-topped cake laden with fruit and nuts? Of course, in the end, he didn’t have the heart to betray her to the White Witch, and sent her back to her own world in safety with dire warnings instead.

My own rendition of Mr. Tumnus’ delicious cake (as a tea) starts with smooth, malty organic Assam black tea, sweetened with cherries, organic currants, organic coconut, cranberries, almonds, white chocolate chips, freshly dried orange slices, and natural cake batter flavor. A mouth-watering dessert tea that also makes a wonderful breakfast blend, this would be a perfect holiday gift for any Narnia geek!

All of my teas are made in tiny batches and come to you in a stand-up, resealable foil-lined pouch to help keep your tea fresh!

ALSO, as a reminder–I’m currently having a store-wide sale! Now through December 1st, when you place an order of $45 or more, 30% will automatically be deducted from your total–just like magic, no coupon codes needed! This gives you the perfect opportunity to sample some teas at a discount, or order some for stocking stuffers–in addition to candles, my new holiday ritual kit, etc.


Corbie J.

20170526_100641I’m not ready to go into a huge amount of detail about it (and who knows if I ever will be? I know Jo plans to write about some of his adventures eventually, but I will likely be keeping my memories more to myself), but I did want to let my blog readers know, since so many of you have rooted for him (and even provided financial support for his expensive heart meds) throughout the years.

On Monday, Corbie lost his almost-four year battle with congestive heart failure, and our vet agreed with what we reluctantly felt in our hearts: that it was time to say goodbye. He actually had suffered a stroke (which I was there for) a few days beforehand, which meant he went from sort of okay to barely conscious within a couple of days.

He was part of our family for more than ten years, and this is a huge, devastating loss for us. I know not everyone will understand the scope of this, but many of you will, especially if you factor in the ways in which a long illness (for any family member, human or otherwise) can dominate attention  and finances for an extended period of time; so much of the way we’ve lived out lives for the past few years, especially, has been determined by his needs and his illness.

End of life vet expenses are pretty hefty, and we were already behind on bills from his recent bloodwork–which is why I opened up the 2018 year ahead readings yesterday, when I had not planned to do so. I don’t know whether I will continue offering readings beyond this (my preference is not to), so if you want a reading for me this may be your last chance for a while.

The extra expenses are also why I will be posting a sale of many of my remaining Tarot and oracle decks here on the blog within the next few days–so watch for that if you’re so inclined.

I have comments off on this post because I just can’t cope with getting condolence messages just now. We are getting through one day at a time. The Etsy shop IS still open, and will remain so–and I’ll be adding more new products (including tea!) within the next few days.


Year Ahead 2018 Readings

For a limited time, I am offering Year Ahead Readings for 2018, which you can reserve directly from me via Paypal. These readings feature thirteen cards–one for your year ahead as a whole, and one to represent each month during 2018. I will select either Tarot cards, oracle cards, or a mix of the two as I feel intuitively called to do for your particular reading.

This reading is designed to offer an overview of your coming year, including any intuitive hits I receive regarding highlights to look forward to and possible issues to watch out for during each of the twelve months. Some of you will remember that I offered these readings last year; I was not initially planning to offer them again this year but I’ve received requests for them from people who found their 2017 readings to be helpful and spot-on in planning their year.

To schedule your reading, please Paypal $50 USD to wodandis at gmail dot com. Readings will be done in the order that payment is received. I am accepting requests now through December 15th, 2017, and all readings will be delivered by December 31, 2017.  (Please allow 1 – 2 weeks for delivery of your reading, as I also have a physical-products business to run.)

When purchasing your reading, please include your full name, email address, date of birth, and any particular concerns you think may be coming up for you in 2018 that you would like me to keep in mind while reading. You will receive an email with my interpretation of your cards, along with a full color photograph of your spread.


Beginning in 2005 and continuing for about seven years, I undertook intensive training in oracular seidhr, otherwise known as Northern Tradition trance work and prophecy. This work is aimed not at predicting the future as such, but instead at propitiating and receiving input and advice from the deities, the spirits, and the universe in general, to help us move forward in our spiritual development as well as with our goals in life.

Despite whatever degree of deity input comes through in my intuitive reading of your cards (or not–this is not something I can guarantee), I hold firmly to the concepts of free will and personal choice. Whatever a deity or spirit may say, imply, or not say, I will not ever tell you what you “should” do or what “will” happen; all power of choice remains with you.


– Everything we discuss in connection with your reading is completely confidential and stays between us.

– I will not read for questions concerning health, legal matters, or any other issue that I deem better handled by a licensed professional.

– While I love feedback, I am unable to provide additional insight or clarity on readings for free.  This is usually not an issue with the year ahead readings, but if you feel you really need clarification you can contact me to arrange payment for a follow-up reading.

– I reserve the right to decline a reading and refund payment for any reason.

– I am unable to offer a refund for readings that do not deliver the outcome you expected or desired.

– I will not perform readings concerning the thoughts and feelings of a third person. (In this case, I mean specifically a human person other than yourself who has not consented to having their cards read.)


Just a few pairs of these left…


Happy Halloween, witches! I discovered I actually have just enough of my Halloween fragrances left to make a few more pairs of these extra-special spooky votives–so if you missed yours, you can still grab some! Of course, you won’t get them in time for today, but we all know Samhain is a season, not just a single day!

Devil’s Night: black candles scented with fiery cinnamon, seductive clove, and dark patchouli
Wild Hunt: blood red candles scented with sweet candy, crunchy apple, and a hint of spices
Funeral Parlor: orchid-colored candles scented with a funereal bouquet of fragrant lily, rose, jasmine, ylang ylang, and incense spice
$6 per votive pair

Limited Edition Norse Deity Gift Packs!


The first wave of my Winter 2017 Limited Edition Collection has landed in the shop, and one of the things I’m most excited about offering are these candle and bath shot gift packs! Right now I have four available (for Odin, Loki, Frigg, and Freyja, respectively), but more are coming soon–and not just for deities, either!

Each gift pack includes ONE 5.5 oz bath shot (a fizzy bath bomb served up to you in a Jello shot-type container) and TWO votive candles. (The candles and bath bombs are also available separately, but getting them as part of a gift pack saves you some money–and also makes for a great holiday gift idea!)

Odin’s set is scented with pure essential oils of fir needle, spearmint, and juniper berry–evoking a walk through dark, snowy woods.


Frigg’s set is scented with pure essential oils of lavender and lemon–a homey and relaxing fragrance.


Loki’s set is  scented with pure essential oils of tangerine, vetiver, and sandalwood–a dark and moody citrus.


Freyja’s set is scented with pure essential oils of neroli and chocolate–a sensual and seductive aroma.

Each set is only $12.95 plus shipping.


Final day for my Clearance items!

last day clearance

After tomorrow, 10/31/17, the Clearance section will be disappearing from my shop–so if you’ve had your eye on something there, don’t wait!


Energy Bracelets in the Shop


I’ve set up a new section in the shop for gemstone Energy Bracelets, which are available in sets of two coordinating stretch bracelets (as shown above) for $12 – $15 per pair. These pairs cannot be mixed and matched, and I am not accepting custom orders for similar bracelets; they’re pretty much as-is, hence the low price.

This section may well be temporary (since I put these bracelets together to use up leftover beads from custom orders), but there will probably still be a place in the shop, going forward, for one-off items, as a sideline to the main course of made-to-order candles, bath bombs, and other products that will be joining them soon. Think of this as the “gift” area of your local apothecary shop–or possibly the check out racks at the grocery store, where sundry confections are placed to tempt you on your way out.


Custom Scented Orders Now Available!

I currently have three different listings in the shop for scented products suitable for ritual or devotional use! Please consult each individual listing for details on how to submit your order and what information I need from you, but here are the basics of what I’m offering!

custom votive

A set of TWO custom votive candles, crafted by hand in the color and scent of your choice. (Essential oil options are given in the listing.) Candles may be dusted with glitter in the color of your choice, and topped with herbs (depending on stock availability).

Please note that BOTH candles in this order must be the same type; the order cannot be divided into two differently colored and scented candles.

Each votive measures 2″ high x 2″ across (at the wick) and will burn for 15+ hours if used in a snug-fitting standard votive holder.  $8 per pair

custom oil.jpg

A 1 oz bottle of ritual oil, designed by you! I make my ritual oils using organic herbs infused into extra virgin olive oil, with small amounts of essential oil added to enhance the fragrance and the properties of the herbs. A small amount of glitter and a few small gemstones can also be added to your oil, at your option.

Presented in a 1 ounce clear plastic bottle (BPA free) with a silver lid, this oil may be used to anoint candles, petitions and offerings, or simply as a delightful personal fragrance.  $18

custom bath shot

One 5.5 oz bath shot (bath bomb in a jelly shot container), designed by you in the color and scent of your choice. (Please see options given in the listing.) This bath bomb may be used for a ritual or dedication bath, or simply for personal enjoyment. $8.95

Please not that I no longer consecrate or “charge” my products, as I believe this is something best left to the purchaser. You provide the magic, and I provide the wholesome natural ingredients! I make my products with love and positive energy, and your custom item will come to you ready to be dedicated as you choose.

As all of the above are custom and made to order, please allow 3-5 business days after we have settled on the details of the order for me to create them for you!
