Full Moon Energy to make items for your home

I like to make items during the Full Moon to integrate the energy into what I am making.

I will share my recipes for the items I made today for my household.

HOMEMADE  LAUNDRY DETERGENT

Ingredients for a one gallon container (one gallon = 16 cups).  Adjust as needed for your size.

1/4 Cup Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda

1/4 Cup Arm & Hammer Pure Baking Soda

1/4 Cup Dr Bronner’s Pure Castile Liquid Soap

Large Glass Container

Purification Essential Oil

 

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the Washing Soda and Baking Soda with enough hot water until it is dissolved.
  2. Pour this into your laundry detergent container.
  3. Fill the container with warm water almost to the top, leaving a couple inches of space at the top.
  4. Pour in the Castile Soap and gently mix.
  5. Add your Essential Oil and mix again.
  6. Keep a wooden spoon or something similar with the container so you can give the detergent a quick stir before using each time.
  7. Use 1/3 of a cup of the detergent according to your washing machine’s instructions.

 

Lemon + Clove Sink Scrub

  • 2 cups baking soda
  • 10 drops lemon essential oil
  • 10 drops clove essential oil
  • castile soap (this is not added to the baking soda until it’s used)
  • Container with a shaker top

 


Fizzy Toilet Bombs

Mix the baking soda and citric acid together in a small bowl. The next step is to add the water and essential oils to the mixture. To minimize the fizzing action, use a small spray bottle that produces a fine mist.

Gently mist and stir the dry mixture until all of the oils have been added. Test the mixture at this point by squeezing some in your fist. If it isn’t clumping very well, put a little more water in the spray bottle and wet it down some more, but just until it can form a good clump in your hand.

Then, pour the mixture into your silicone mold of choice, and pack each cell down firmly. Allow the bombs to dry for several hours, then remove them gently from the mold and they’re ready to use!

If you’re having a particularly rough day due to allergies, drop one of these “bombs” into a bowl of hot, steamy water. Put your face over the bowl and drape a large towel over your head to trap in all the beneficial, steamy goodness for about 5-10 minutes. (One small tip: peppermint can be a little bit sting-y so it’s best to keep your eyes shut!) This steam treatment will help calm irritated skin around the eyes and nose, and will help open up your airways and reduce congestion.

Creative Potion Making

The Cosmic Cookie Trail led me to the following blog post today about making your own Blue Bat’s Blood Ink.  I have never tried making my own ink before and it sounds interesting to try!  I do enjoy writing with a fountain pen and have a couple with different colored inks.  I think it would be neat to find a feather pen or something similar to use with this recipe.

Fire Cider

Here is another item on my To Do list today!  The nice thing about Fire Cider is you can change it and add things that you feel drawn to do so.  This is really good to have on hand as we go into the winter months.  It takes a month…from full moon to full moon to make so you may want to get it started now.  Here is my recipe:

Fire Cider

½ C fresh grated organic ginger root

1/2 C fresh grated organic horseradish root

1 medium organic onion, chopped

10 cloves of organic garlic, crushed or chopped

2 organic jalapeno peppers, chopped (if desired)

Zest and juice from 1 organic lemon

Several sprigs of fresh organic rosemary or 2 T of dried rosemary leaves

1 T organic Turmeric powder 

1/4 t organic cayenne powder

Organic apple cider vinegar

Raw local honey to taste

Prepare all of your roots, fruits, and herbs and place them in a quart sized jar. If you’ve never grated fresh horseradish, be prepared for a powerful sinus opening experience! Use a piece of natural parchment paper under the lid to keep the vinegar from touching the metal, or a plastic lid if you have one. Shake well! Store in a dark, cool place for one month and remember to shake daily.

After one month, use cheesecloth to strain out the pulp, pouring the vinegar into a clean jar. Be sure to squeeze as much of the liquid goodness as you can from the pulp while straining. Add 1/4 cup of honey and stir until incorporated. Taste your cider and add another 1/4 cup until you reach the desired sweetness.
