DIY Facial Spritzer

A heat wave has swept through NYC over the last few weeks. While I welcome the heat, there are a few things I always carry in my bag while on the go in hot weather. One of my must-haves is a facial spritzer, which I love to make myself. A spritzer is a great way to cool off and be refreshed in the hot weather, particularly while hitting the pavement in the city or lying out on the beach. 

The materials required are very simple. Get some distilled water and citrus peels (I used lemons today, which are always in my kitchen during the summer months). First, prepare some citrus peels (any citrus will work well). Then, pour fresh boiled water over the citrus peels and let them sit overnight in your kitchen. Pour the mixture the next morning into a spray bottle and your done!

You can add pretty accents such as rosemary or petals to your bottle to further enhance its fragrance and beauty as I did. Rosemary in particular is excellent for the skin and is used in aromatherapy to relax the nervous system and promote relaxation. In addition, you can add a few drops of your favorite perfume to the bottle, essential oils or aloe vera.

Sea Witches Moon Blessing of Salt

pisceswitch:

As you set the jar of salt in the moonlight, say:

"Sister moon, shining bright, 
As you guide the tides this night,
Purify this salt for me, 
With the magic of the sea.”

Rose Water

  • 1 Jar of any size (I chose a small one)
  • Enough Distilled or Purified Water to fill the jar
  • Enough Rose Petals to fill the jar
  • 1-2 Drops of Pure, Sugarless Vanilla Extract or Food-Grade Essential Oil
  • 1-2 Drops Pure,True Almond Extract or Food-Grade Essential Oil

Place your water and your jar in a saucepan and bring your water to a boil. Boil for 3-5 minutes to disinfect the jar and bring it to temperature so the glass doesn’t break when you poor the hot water into it.

While your water is boiling, gently remove the petals from the center of the roses, and rinse them to make sure there aren’t any bugs or dirt on them.

Carefully remove and dry the jar’s outside being careful not to burn yourself (it’s hot!). Stuff your jar with the petals, and poor the water over them. Ad in your Almond and Vanilla products (optional), cap, and let sit on a windowsill for 24 hours.

Strain the petals out of the water after that, rinse the jar out, and place the rose water back in the jar, and you’re done. 

This is how my grandmother taught me to make Herbal and Flower waters growing up, most people and tutorials I’ve watched, though, don’t usually do it this way or let them sit this long.

the Saturn square

"Enhance" square using information drawn of materials given by The Golden Dawn

Paul Case: top lines were the initiating energies, the second line where the catalysts and the third line were the results

ZAzal sigil

Nick Farrel: Zazel is heavily committed towards communication and Gemini, which is something we would not expect from a Spirit of Saturn. Indeed with the Fool we would think that the spirit is pure air. The only thing that seems to root him to anything would be having his feet in the waters of Luna and the High Priestess. Using the Golden Dawn Talismatic associations we could visualise a crowned being with a thin intelligent face, light hair (you could argue a case for a dual headed Janus). Winged with a swastika lamen, holding a sword standing on waves of water. (note that if you are using the square you do not look up the talismatic image for Lamed, you look up Gimel). There is a lot more information which can be gleened from this method, you could take it even further by adding the colour scheme from the vault.
