my first attempt at making lake pigments (i.e. hyper-concentrated dried dye) was a screaming success. started out w extracting color from cochineals [that i harvested myself this past summer from nopalli & huitznahuac on the rez in new mexico!] via a day long soak then a simmer, added alum + washing soda to the liquid and let it sit until the sediment settled on the bottom. next, i strained the sediment and painted thin layers of it on coffee filters which were left in a warm spot (no sun!) to dry out completely. once dry, i cracked the hardened dye off the filters and ground it into a powder w my pestle. if any of the remaining liquid still has color to it, you can repeat the steps until it runs completely clear. the jar on the right is the original lake pigment and the jar on the left was the pigment rendered on the second & third cycles.
you can use lake pigments to make dye baths for fibers and you can use them to make your own paint. it saves so much space and is practically zero waste.
folk! magic! 🕊
i’m tellin’ you. it has always been the real deal.

How to use lemons in witchcraft (Pt. 4)
Part four: lemon seeds
Basics of lemons:
Zodiac: Cancer and Pisces Planet: The Moon Element: Water Energy: Feminine
Lemon Seeds in witchcraft
My favorite way to use lemon seeds in witchcraft is using what nature gave me. I clean some seeds, add to tamp paper towels, place them in a baggy, and hang them on my window for about 2-3 weeks. Once they sprout, I'll plant no more than two into a tiny little cup planter and keep it on my altar. Every time i go to water it, I'm reminded to care for my altar. Every time I care for my altar, I'm reminded to water it. It's a simple but extraordinarily effective way to measure my own personal growth as well. Once they're big enough to need a home outside, I'll replant it, and start all over with another kind of seed. My orchard is ever-growing.
Wearing lemon seeds can be a little difficult to style, but it can be done. I personally let them dry for about a month before I do this. You can take a small lemon seed and slip it into a locket to carry with you. Make a little wire cage, or simply poke a hole in it and string it onto a piece of leather cord. Lemon seeds are little pockets o sunshine for your soul and represent the ability to grow and harvest a new way of life wherever you end up. Gifting someone jewelry with lemon seeds represents you wishing them a lifetime of good health, energy, and spiritual wellbeing.
Lemon seeds are also great ways to add lemon essence to things like spell jars. If they're dried properly, they allow you to harness that lemony effect without needing to watch your spell jar turn into an ecosystem of manifestation and mold.
Please consider this post open for all ideas, comments, tricks, and tips! I use a lot of interaction from my blog to come up with new things to post about - so if you wanna say something, go for it! As always everyone, be safe out there, and Blessed Be :)

🕯️Celebrating Winter Solstice🕯️
This is the way my partner and I have chosen to celebrate the winter solstice and the days of darkness that occur before the sun's path across the sky moves northward again on the 25th.
I thought I would share in case anyone finds this helpful in guiding their own celebration for this time of year.
🕯️In the weeks before:
-decorate a solstice tree with sun and light themed ornaments. If you wrote your intentions last year (see below) begin reflecting on these.
🕯️21st (winter solstice):
-set up altar (other posts share helpful information on how to do this, so I won't go into that here)
-place candles around home to use later that night. Use only candles for light once night falls
-hold a solstice feast and give thanks for everything good that came to you this year. If your intentions from last year manifested, give thanks for this.
🕯️22nd-23rd:
-reflect on things to let go of. Write down everything to release and let go of onto tiny scraps of paper. Continue to write down every hurt, every perceived injustice, all judgments against self or others, no matter how big or small it may seem. Put these in a jar as you write them for these two days.
🕯️24th:
-burn the yule log. One by one toss in your scraps of paper to let these things go. Visualize these dark things burning and becoming the light.
-If you have your intentions from last year (see below) reflect on what manifested, and what still remains to be done, then toss this in too to give yourself a clean slate.
-once the log finishes burning, sit down and write your intention(s) for the upcoming year on a piece of paper. Fold this paper, seal it with wax, then hang it on your solstice tree. Pack this paper away with your solstice decorations when putting them away for next year. Next solstice you can reflect on the past year's solstice intentions when unpacking decorations and setting up your tree.

"Witchy Woman" in some different lighting. I used a few different types of glass in this one that you can better see in these pics!
It's so hard to get the right pictures that really capture the full range of color and texture in glass! It's probably the most difficult part in the whole process for me. 😭

I’ve been growing my ginger since Imbolc, and it’s about ready to harvest now finally. Just in time for Yule, as intended. But I can’t decide if I should make ginger bread, soft gingerbread cookies, or gingerbread people.
Thoughts? Other ideas of what I should make with it?

Folks seemed to like pictures from my last hike, so here’s my favorite place in the whole world, Lost Valley Trail. It’s got so much history from forcibly evacuated towns and radiation and the storing of those wasted materials. The land is almost unusable for most things other than hiking and military drills.

How to use lemons in witchcraft (Pt. 3)
Part three: lemon peel
Basics of lemons:
Zodiac: Cancer and Pisces Planet: The Moon Element: Water Energy: Feminine
Lemon peel in witchcraft
I love incorporating witchy things into my showers. Even if I melt down a soap bar and add lemon zest, toss in a few lemon slices into the tub, or make a sugar/salt body scrub with lemon zest, I feel like that little touch adds an energizing and wonderful spark in the mornings when I shower!
Lemon peel is also FULL of what is essentially... essential oil. You know when you have some orange peel, and you bend it about, a find mist propels into the air around it? Lemon peel does the same thing. Hack a slice off, spritz it onto the front of your shirt, and you'll carry a light, refreshing, cleansing aura around with you all day! Plus, the effects linger, so when you wash it, your diluting a tiny bit of positivity into all of your clothes.
You can also use dried lemon peel as a smoke cleanse. It's not very pleasant to smell, but it has an amazing effect. Lemon sucks up negativity like a vacuum, so naturally it'll do just that as it's wafting around your space. Open a window, turn on a fan, and watch a week's worth of stress and anxiety rush right out of your home.
As always, if anyone has any other tips, tricks, or witchy hints on the subject, you are all more than welcome to add your ideas into comments, tags, and reblogs! My blog runs off of the ideas that you all give me, so interacting with posts not only get your ideas out there for others, but it also helps me find new topics to post about. As always, be safe, and blessed be!
