@Satu_TheGreenWitch I’m drooling reading your post, Satu- 100% agreed! Homey kitchen smells are some of the most welcoming and relaxing scents in the world.

@Jessica72 Herbal dream bags absolutely count!

@Marsha Learning about the “Clairs” was fascinating- from the list, the only word I would have recognized is clairvoyance. I feel like a new door has opened up, how exciting to learn about these abilities! It sounds like your talents and magickal abilities were shared amongst your kids, Marsha, what a gift to have Thank you (and your son!) for digging into clairalience, it really is a blessing to learn about!

Really great work

He is very blessed to have you and your loving support- I’m sending positive thoughts your way May the pinecones, jasmine, and Hecate’s blessing help to heal and bless you and your husband So mote it be!
@Torista 5 gallons of perfume is a lot of perfume! I mean, that’s awesome if it turns out to be a great scent, but I think you’re very wise to start off with small batches just in case. It looks like you really dug into your research and found some amazing (and ancient!) methods for crafting. Thank you so much for sharing (and also for that lovely opening scene- it really pulled me into the experience and tied the scent with a situation)
@Amethyst There are certainly worse things than incense to be addicted to, my friend! What you said makes me wonder if there’s a monthly subscription box for incenses out there? If so, sounds like something you might enjoy!
Lovely chant and such a gorgeous collection of incense- so many fun choices! Thanks so much for sharing!
