Spell for Self-Love

Good afternoon everyone, As the days are cold and socialising is non existent I thought why not enhance our lives with self love.

Here is a quick spell.

You will need..

  • Rose Quartz
  • Glass of drinking water or (Moon infused) if you have. I will be writing how to do this closer to the next full moon but a glass of drinking water will do fine aswell.
  • A candle -pink or white.
  • Jasmine and ylang ylang essential oils.
  • Rose water (culinary grade) to drink.

First make sure you are in a place where you will not be disturbed.

Close your eyes, ground and centre yourself. You may wish to smudge the space before hand and create a sacred space in your own way.

Breath deeply, let your breath fill your lungs and nourishing your body. You may wish to do a meditation at this point to draw in and surround yourself with a pink and golden light. Glittering beautiful soft hues of pink and gold flowing in white light.

Now take your candle, anoint it with the oil. Hold it in your hands saying: I am beautiful, I deserve love, I accept myself as a whole. I am love.

Light the candle.

Let the scent of the oils fill the space around you engulfing you in loving fragrance.

Now take the glass of water. Say: I infuse this water with love, light and happiness. May I be filled with love, light and happiness. Place the rose quartz into the glass of water. Take a few moments to enjoy the scent of the oils the warmth of the flame, the beauty and love eminating through you as you are filled with the sparkling golden and soft pink huges of the white light.

In your own time add a tea spoon of the rose water and say: I am open to love. I receive love. I am love. Now sip the water.

Once you have finished you may want to sit with this energy for I while.

Then give thanks in your own way and put the candle out. I recommend to let it burn to its end but you can snuff it out and relight it anytime you feel you need a boast of self love.

I also recommend to draw back your roots and branches if using the tree meditation.

If you have some food nearby I recommend in grounding yourself with a few bites.

Also please cleanse and energize your crystals regularly and after using them in magical work.

If you have any questions or wish to share your experiences please leave a comment.

Lots of love and Brightest Blessings always.

Lavender (Healing herbs)

Lavender : Folk name Elf leaf

Lavender is a member of the mint family.

There are several types of lavender from English lavender, Lavandula officinalis to the Portuguese variety, Lavandula latifolia also french which refer to atleast two species Lavandula dentata and Lavandula stoechas which is also refered to as spanish lavender to name a few.

With fragrant purple flowers used since ancient times, today uses include helping against anxiety, insomnia, depression and a range of mental health issues.

Lavender is also used to treat headaches, toothaches, acne, skin irritation, insect bites, hair loss, high blood pressure and nausea.

Most commonly used in aromatherapy to relax and relieve stress also used as a sleep aid.

Lavender is known to have antiseptic and anti inflammatory properties.

Journal of Alternative and Complimentary Medicine found that when applied topically lavender, sage and rose, could reduce the severity of menstrual cramps. They also mention that lavender oil may help in combating antifungal resistant infections.

According to the National Cancer Institute, aromatherapy helps patients manage the side effects of cancer treatment and may also help adults who suffer from dementia.

Alopecia aerate is a scalp condition responsible for hair loss. According to Archives of Dermatology, lavender oil aswell as thyme, rosemary, and cedarwood can help hair regrow over the period of several months when applied directly to the scalp.

When using oils on the skin I suggest mixing with a base oil as essential oils are concerned and may cause skin irritation.

Lavender has also shown positive results in helping with eczema, acne and sunburns.

I recommend mixing lavender with camomile into a gel with aloe vera (inner leaf) for nappy rash.

I promise to write some of my home recipies for creams and gels in another post.

In magic and spell craft lavender is an important plant. The purple flowers enhance psychic ability and can help you to remember your dreams.

Lavender perfume has been used in love spells (to invite your next love into your life) also by adding lavender to your beauty routine or beauty spell.

Burning lavender to purify a space as a smudge stick or just dipped in water in a room can remove negative energies.

Carrying a lavender flower with you in folklore was said to bring you long life.

Lavender can bring happiness by baking into cakes and cookies.

Lavender tea can be steeped for a matter of minutes then enjoyed bringing benefits of increased brain power and boost intelligence aswell as helping relax you before bed.

Lavender oil is also brilliant used as an aromatherapy while in meditation enhancing spiritual connections.


Chamomile (Healing Herb)

Chamomile has to be one of my favorites.

Dried chamomile flowers are used to make a beautiful golden infusion after steeping for a matter of minutes.

It is known to be an anti inflammatory aswell as:

  • Reducing menstrual pain
  • Treating diabetes and lowering blood sugar levels
  • Slowing or preventing osteoporosis
  • Helps promote bone density
  • Cancer treatment and prevention
  • (Above information from a study taken in 2004)

Chamomile is also a relaxing drink that is often used to calm before bed.

This amazing flower can be used to treat cold symptoms.

It is safe to give to children and babies providing they have no allergy to chamomile.

I’ve used it to calm my children before bed when they’ve had a cold or flu instead of using calpol (holy basil for fever). Personally I always add some honey when serving it for children. (Honey should not be given to children under one year).

My mother used to treat allergic reactions or other skin conditions like eczema with Chamomile.

Not sure what studies have been done in this respect but always worked for us.

Have a wonderful day. Lots of love and Brightest Blessings always
