Tuesday Is Ruled By Mars

 

Tuesday is a Mars day, and just like the god of war, this is the time to tap into magicks to call for strength and courage. This day of the week is for rebels and warriors. If you are facing a challenge of any kind, need a boost to your courage, or want to enhance your passions, Tuesday is the day of the week for you. Some suggestions for Tuesday enchantments would include:

*Wearing the fiery colors associated with this day: scarlet, red, black, and orange. Don some of the more daring and bewitching colors of your wardrobe on Tuesdays and turn a few heads

*Carrying a bloodstone in your pocket or wearing garnet-studded jewelry to reinforce your convictions

*Working with protective and fire-associated plants such as the snapdragon, thistle, and holly to boost your shields and bravery

*Burning spicy-scented energy-enhancing candles to add a little magical aromatherapy to your home

*Cooking up a hearty meal featuring carrots, peppers, and garlic (all Mars foods and spices) to empower yourself for victory and success

Introduction To Aromatherapy

INTRODUCTION TO AROMATHERPY

Aromatherapy has been around and has been practiced in one form or another since the beginning of civilization. It is the art, and science, of using oils extracted from aromatic plants to enhance health and beauty. Apart from the physical benefits, essential oils can have subtle effects on the mind and emotions. The essential oils taken from plants and used in Aromatherapy have been described as their “life force” – they are essential to the plants’ biological process, as well as being the substance which gives them their scent. Synthetic oils, even if chemically similar, will lack all the natural elements, and that vital life-force, that make essential oils so valuable therapeutically.

Another reason why synthetic oils are not acceptable is that the minor constituents  are never identical. The addition of synthetic chemicals is not normally disclosed in the essential oil business, so unless there is a declaration that the oils are natural, pure and unadulterated, assume otherwise.

Essential oils are extracted from flowers; herbs; spices; woods and fibers, usually by distillation, expression and solvent extraction. Solvent extraction is only acceptable for aromatherapy if the solvent used is completely removed after the manufacturing process

A good reminder of the power of  essential oils and how they work.
To introduce aromatherapy to  babies place 2 drops of essential oil C
(try Lavender) on a tissue and  keep it nearby when you are feeding
him or her. He will come to  associate the aroma with love and
comfort. Use this scent at night  to help him sleep. When you leave
the child with a sitter the aroma  will comfort and reassure him.

To Soothe A Sad Heart

To Soothe A Sad Heart

Items You Will Need:

White, blue, or pink candle

Lavender essential oil

Flowers

Incense

Light the candle. If using oil, dab a bit over your heart chakra. If using incense, light it and waft some of the smoke toward your heart. Put both hands over your heart, then say the following:

“Sad am I and full of woe
My heart is sore and tattered
The world of late has not been kind
And it’s left me feeling battered.
I ask the Gods to soothe my heart
And help my spirit soar
Ease my pain and heal my wounds
So I might smile once more.

HONOR YOUR HOUSEHOLD SPIRITS

When presenting your house spirits with offerings of incense,
candles or what not you can say this little chant:
“Wraith of the house, Take heart and live,
To every chamber This light I give,
To every corner This breath I send
Approve and favor my willing hand.”
