I made this wand and stand for my crystal ball. I enjoyed it so much and am very proud/happy with how they turned out! Blessed be!
Hiya @pink! Welcome! Your wand and stand look fabulous I particularly love the blue gems around the crystal ball-so pretty and magical!
Thanks @Limeberry! So many awesome crafts and talented folks here!
Still time to participate? Hekate inspired me to create something nice for her today!
Ooh yes this totally counts!!!
So I started the process of making a Mother Tincture, i.e. a concentrated extract of a plant!
I still have an abundance of Lavender, so I used alcohol to extract the nutrients of the plant. I learned that alcohol allows easy absorption of natural components into the bloodstream, and it is also useful for its preservation.
DIY Lavender Tincture
- Glass jars with cap
- 2 cups vodka
- 1/2 cup organic lavender flowers, dried.
- Place lavender flowers into glass jar.
- Pour vodka over flower and place cap securely on.
- Give a little shake and place out of direct sunlight.
- Let sit for at least 2 weeks, giving it a little shake once in a while.
- Strain through a sieve, gently pressing flowers to extract all the goodness. You can strain again through a sieve lined with an unbleached coffee filter if you want.
- Place in a clean glass container with a tight cap. Keep out of direct sunlight.
Its Magickal Uses
Lavender favors clairvoyance. It brings harmony and peace to the home and it’s a great purifier. Some people place lavender under the pillow before going to bed to favor a calm, relaxed sleep.
That’s gorgeous @Nadialuna! What’s that glint of gold I see there in the middle? Anyhoo, it’s very creative!
Welcome Pink! You’re knocking it out of the ballpark on your first post! Great job!
Gosh, those bottles look great @Francisco! And that must smell heavenly! Way to go!
Well can’t do much lately, but I am drying lavender I harvested and 3 roses the bf gave me so I can grind them up and make something with them. Probably some oil.
Oh ya @kasie ! It’s actually a tree of life jade charm but it needs polishing, it looks gold in the pic. There is a silver heart too
That is some very unique inspiration, @Kasie! Hey, whatever sparks the writing genius, right? Well done!

Thanks again @TheTravelWitch! My Mom actually had me write down the words to that song and used part of it as a prayer once. Everyone thought it was so lovely and asked her where she found it and she had to admit she got it from the Muppets. LOL.
Thank you! I had a lovely time putting it together.
Thank u so much and I’m loving this community
Thank u and thanks for the challenge
@Francisco How did I miss this… I love it! I am putting this in my notes, I may have to plant more lavender next spring so I have enough to harvest
You are very welcome, @Pink! Glad you enjoyed the challenge- and again, great job!
Hooray for more lavender! You can never have too much And with how crafty you are, @Berta, I’m sure it will all be used up quickly in your amazing creations!
I finished my son’s wellness bracelet, so I thought I’d post a pic.
The sigil on the bead is for prosperity,love,health, and money.
Very nice @Tamera! I don’t see how you could write that sigil so small! Good job!
