Samhain Altar in a Cup
Rosemary (for remembrance of our ancestors), Mullein (abundance), mugwort (to aid in divination), calendula (to encourage emotional warmth and tolerance, compassion and the ability to truly listen to what others are saying) and a dash of Florida Water to banish negativity. I was going to include some acorns but couldn’t find my stash of them!
A cookie I ordered at Starbucks!
The Samhain plate I painted.
At Samhain, witches once gave one another acorns as gifts. During the Burning Times, giving someone an acorn was a secret means of telling that person you were a witch. Acorns are fruits of the oak, one of the most sacred trees to the ancient Celts. They are symbols of protection, fertility, growth, values, and friendship.
Ancestor Connection Anointing Oil
You will need to make hematite gem elixir water as well as obsidian gem elixir water first. I would suggest using the indirect method as to not harm the stones. Put water in a glass jar and set the stone next to the water and set outside…you can charge them with either the sun or the full moon, whichever your own intuition tells you.
1 15ml amber bottle
Several hematite and snowflake obsidian chips (small stones to fit in bottle)
10 drops cinnamon bark essential oil
10 drops clove oil
7 drops each of hematite & snowflake obsidian gem elixir water
- Add your stone chips to the bottle first
- Pour the oil into glass bottle
- Add drops of essential oil and the gem elixirs
- Cap the bottle & shake to mix everything together and label the bottle
- Shake before each use to mix the oils
You can now either anoint yourself with the oil or use it on any ritual tools you are using for your ritual.
