Lughnasadh Ritual

 

Lughnasadh Altar outside full

Items needed: sage, sweetgrass, abalone shell, feather fan, flame, staff, and altar, candles in green, yellow, red, and blue, purple.  Items to represent each of the elements placed on the altar (dish of salt, bell, candle, water) item to represent for Lord and Lady, Golden Lion Anointing Oil, corn husk, pen, cauldron, orange candle for Lord and Lady, bread/crackers, apple cider, offering plate and chalice

To prepare properly for the ritual, be sure to take a cleansing purifying bath using herbs and crystals or spray self with Grounding Mist spray.

Prepare the Circle: Sweep negative energy out widdershins (counter clockwise) with broom.  State that intent with every sweep. Then start to Sage deosil (clockwise) with sage and sweet grass stating the intent to draw positive energy in.

Casting the Circle: visualize white light coming from sky above and then use the staff to mark the circle walking deosil (clockwise) three times (once for protection, once for focus, and once for power) the white light increasing to cover the sacred space.

Calling the Watchtowers:  As each Watchtower is welcomed, light the candle.

Ritual:

Anoint self with Golden Lion oil

Light the orange candle while saying:

“On this first day of August, I light a candle to celebrate the harvest.

As the wheel of the year turns and the days start to grow shorter, I honor the Lord and Lady and thank them for the blessings and prosperity they have brought to me this year.”

 (Take bite of bread and offer to Lord and Lady on a plate, take sip of apple cider and offer to them)

“I honor those who came before me, and all things living on this earth.”

Think of a trait you wish to change in yourself and write it on a piece of corn husk, after reciting spell, put in cauldron and burn it.

“With this pen, I ask for guidance,

To remain heart centered in the Light,

And as the husk burns away that which I released to change.”

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.
