A Post Before my Trip

In the wee hours of Sunday night (or early Monday morning), some of my kids and I will be headed for the Omaha airport where we’re flying out to Arizona.  There are connections there now that I feel will grow with the years.  I’m going to take advantage of this trip to immerse myself in Sedona for a few days and then go on to the Grand Canyon.  I’m such an incurable home-body that this is a step away from my usual existence, ensconced in my old house and the busy rooms, enjoying the woodsy wild back yard, and just being surrounded by and appreciating our multitude of pets (mostly cats, 6 of them black), and all of this in perfect contentment.

But destiny calls.

  My Kitchen

I’ve been going through checklists of things to do, things to get, things to address, before leaving.  The house-sitter is set with a loaded pantry and fridge and an abundance of pet supplies.  Financial things are done, and strangely enough most of my monthly household bills have come in and been paid, so that’s one less thing to think about.  I have to pack today (Saturday), and I have one more work-as-usual day coming up (Sunday).  And then, we’re off!

I’ll be posting regular updates, photos, and video clips both at my Instagram and at my main Facebook page:

I’ve managed to get a few last minute witchy business things done, which were also on my list, including my Samhain Special at The Witch’s Corner:  follow this link and scroll down, it’s right there http://amythystraine.blogspot.com

I’ve put together a charming little bag to celebrate Samhain and draw in the spirits, spirits of the season and spirits we wish to communicate with.  Samhain is traditionally a time to connect with our ancestors and especially loved ones who have passed.

Honor your ancestors, and honor the spirit of Samhain,
with these magickal items.

The Samhain Special:

a white spirit dollie,
a bottle of Black Cat Oil,
and a black votive candle

$24.99

*Note:  The Black Cat Oil included in this offer 
is safe for your skin, so feel free to wear it!  

It’s my own recipe, and it
smells wonderful!

With Samhain right around the corner, the end of the year coming, so many of us are questioning so many things about our lives.  There’s relationships and the changes that come with them, the doubts, the questions, the mystery of it all.  Some of us have reached pivotal points where jobs and careers are concerned.

If you’ve ever asked yourself, “Is this it?  Is this all there is to my life?  Is this where I’m suppose to be?”… you’re more than ready for a reading to find some answers.

What’s in the August Newsletter?

The August newsletter video:

As I was taping this episode the weather was becoming *Darker and Darker and Darker* and soon it began to rain, so during various sections of this video you may hear the rhythmic plunk, plunk plunk of water leaking around the sky-lights on my porch roof, you may hear the steady sound of rain, and occasionally the wind will rise. It’s all good. There’s a nice Q&A section at the beginning where I explain a little bit about my online coven experience and why I won’t do it again; you’ll also hear some court case questions, as well as other questions and answers dealing with Black Cat Oil and the use of Rosemary & Amythyst in the bedroom. The second portion of this video deals with my personal experience with Independent Publishing. I really believe that this is a new wave for the future. There’s also informal chatting about writing, deciding to write a book, and snippets of all kinds of ideas based around this topic. Hope you enjoy our visit though this video and the awesome summer weather!!

Oils, n’ Potions, n’ Powders ~ Oh, my!

Below is a list of magickal oils, potions, n’ powders you can find at my website, The Witch’s Corner ~

Health & Healing Oil

This ointment is used to “dress” candles used for healing or to maintain continued good health.  Annoint a green candle with this oil for healing of the body; a yellow candle for healing of the mind; a red candle for the physical healing of the reproductive system– a yellow candle can be burned along with the red one for mental healing of sexual abuse victims. 

Exorcism/Purification Oil 

Annoint a black candle with this oil to exorcise those demons that are bothering you– whether the irritation is physical or mental.  Annoint a white candle with this oil and burn it to purify your physical space or your mental/physical state.  I’ve used this oil to exorcise entities haunting my home, and I’ve used it to exorcise people from my life who were causing problems.

Mars Astrological Oil

This ointment promotes courage, strength, aggression, sexual energy, healing after surgery, exorcisms, and defensive magick.  I’ve found this to be an especially effective and strong magickal tool, and I want to caution you that this oil can also banish.  Use it wisely.

Witches’ Oil

This is an “all purpose” oil which can be used to annoint the body prior to rituals or spell casting.  It can also be used to dress candles.

Psychic Oil

Annoint your third eye chakra with this oil before doing divination of any kind,  or annoint a lavendar candle to call up and strengthen your psychic powers.

Sex Oil

Carve your name and the name of the one you desire on a red candle; annoint it with this oil to ignite passion and lust.  Then stand back and be prepared for some fireworks!  This oil can be made to accomodate a monogamous couple, instilled with herbs to maintain fidelity.  If you wish, you can email me with your personal preferences.  We can work together to create a unique oil with the qualities that you desire.

Prosperity Oil

This oil is used to annoint candles for money magick.  It can also be used to annoint stones conducive to wealth and prosperity and carried in your purse or wallet.  It will enhance and draw the energies that stimulate the acquisition of money in many ways.

Summoning Powder

This powder does just what its name suggests– it summons someone to you.  If you are in possession of a piece of clothing belonging to the individual you wish to summon, particularly intimate apparell, sprinkle it with this powder.  You can also sprinkle this powder on a piece of correspondence you send to this person– although in this day and age of terrorism, I would be cautious about sending anything through the mail that has a powdery dust on it.

Black Cat Oil

Black cat oil is used to break bad spells and hexes, to attract the opposite sex, and to call in the spirits– benevolent, magickally oriented spirits.  The ingredients in black cat oil is slightly different to attract the opposite sex, so make sure that you select the correct pay pal button.

Four Thieves Vinegar 

Four Thieves Vinegar is a crucial component in many banishing and commanding spells.  It can also be used to banish illness.  It’s reputed to drive away danger and rescue its user from disaster.

Graveyard Dirt

This item is exactly what its name implies– soil taken from the consecrated ground of a cemetery.  Graveyard dirt is a necessary ingredient in many hexing/cursing spells.  On the flip side, it is also the key ingredient in many benevolent spells, including those for health and healing.

Banishing Oil

Banishing oils are generally used in banishing spells, whether you’re trying to rid yourself of undesirable people, situations, habits, or things.  Just make sure that what you think you want banished, you really do– getting something back is much more work than making something go away.

Command & Compel Oil

“Commanding Oil” is generally used in binding spells– to get another to bend to your will and do what you want and to gain control of a situation.  This oil has a strong history in voodoo and New Orleans hoodoo culture and is used almost exclusively to exert your will over others.

Uncrossing Oil

This oil is most often used to remove hexes/curses placed upon you.  It’s also brought into service to turn bad luck around and is used in spells for just such results.

New items! ~

Money Wash

Sprinkle money wash across the threshold of your front door or business to attract money.  Sprinkle a little money wash in your mop water and scrub those floors to bring in cash.  Use it in a variety of ways for your own unique magickal practices.

Ancestor Oil 

This magickal oil is filled with the herbs and special items used to connect you with the spirit world.  Use this oil on a candle, or on yourself, when you wish to thin the veil between the world of the living and those who’ve passed.  This is the perfect oil to use before divination, séances, or the practice of mediumship.

 

Helpful Hint:
Once you purchase your bottle of magickal oil, never let the bottle run out of oil.  You can treat your first bottle, which will be filled with herbs and other magickal things, as a “mother”.  The energy is there, the original recipe is there, just keep re-filling your bottle with a base oil of your choice.

Warning
These oils/potions/powders are NOT meant to be ingested!  Most of these oils could be applied to the skin, but there may be an occasional potion that contains a skin irritant…so if in doubt, just don’t!
