Candle Dressing Oil

 Dressing Oil

Based on an oil recipe handed down to me for dressing candles before ritual

What you need:

2 dram (10mL) clean amber or cobalt vial sweet almond oil (has vitamin E
for preservation)
6 drops sandalwood mysore e.o.
3 drops myrrh e.o.
3 drops frankincense e.o.

Add the essential oils to the bottle and swirl them gently in order to get them
blended. Add any crystals (make sure they are clean too) and then add your base
oil to top the bottle off. I don’t use crystals in all my blends but some people
add crystals to their magical blends to keep them charged with a specific
intention. Make sure to keep the oils stored away from light and write on a
sticker or piece of paper to be taped on the name of the blend, time, date, moon
phase, planetary hour and any other info you wish so that you know what you made and when for use later. As well, be careful as these blends will eventually go off so use your sniffer and be aware of what the blend should smell like. Once
it seems off, you can discard it, clean the bottle and start a fresh! Make sure
it is completely clean and if it cannot be completely cleaned, discard and use a
fresh one.
Remember – essential oils can cause reactions and oils like citrus can cause
photosensitivity so please – be careful ~ Herbs can be dangerous.

Essential oils are volatile so bottles left with tops off will soon lose their
potency. Ensure that oils don’t get too hot and, in the case of oils like
citrus-based oils, not too cold. To test your essential oils to see if they are
pure, put a drop or two on blotter paper. Genuine essential oils will evaporate

Good Friday Morning, my dear friends! You Should Be Doing Fantastic Today!

“My Little Stinker”

Good morning, my dears! As promised, here is my little Stinker! As you can see he is a yellow tabby cat. He weighs 14 pounds. I know that sounds like a lot but he is all muscle. He has to be to keep Razzy off his butt. Something that amazes me, he is a fixed tomcat. But he still gets in a romantic mood when it comes to Razzy? That puzzles me. I thought once fixed all that stops but my husband mentioned it might be because he is around her all the time. Heck if I know. But I know she doesn’t want a darn thing to do with him. I hope one day he figures out she is not his type of cat (at least before she kills him). If you haven’t noticed, I got one of my cameras working and loading onto my laptop. I have went crazy photographing this and that. I have to show you one of the little creatures that I get to care for. This little guy came from the vet. His mother and other siblings were shot by a farmer out in a field. The wolves were minding their own business and the fool shot all of them but one. Someone else heard the shots and went to see what was going on. By that time the man who had shot the wolves had left. The good guy found this little guy still alive. When his mother was shot, she fell on top of him and that was all that saved him. There were four other cubs and they were all killed. So the good guy took this one to the vet. The vet checked him out and he was fine (just scared to death). The vet called me to see if I had room for a little visitor. How could I refuse? I went and picked him up and he took right up with me. He is too young to be released back into the wild. So he will be with me for a few weeks. He is adorable and he can do some of the cutest things. My husband thinks I will end up keeping him (might, who knows, lol). I love wolves and this one is…….well see for yourself. 

 He is a little red wolf. The government had the bright idea to release some of the adult red wolves over at the game reserve. The intention was to repopulate the red wolves in this area and a few other areas around here. I didn’t know the red wolf was a native. But I guess you learn something new every day. I know when we first moved here, there was a huge gray wolf. Boy was he gorgeous. He would come around because of Mocha (my wolf hybrid). He had romantic intentions towards her too. The same thing happened every time he would get within 500 feet of him. She would try to eat him. Back to this little guy, he is absolutely adorable. He is so little I can take him out in the yard and not worry about him running off. He loves to play but he does play rough. He has done deflated one ball and working on his second.

But the wolf pup is just an example of some of the animals I care for. I had possums, raccoons, an adult wolf or two, foxes, deer, you name it and it will eventually show up here. I get donations from local individuals because of the food bill is so high. Also the donations help pay for all the vaccinations and checkups the animals might need before they are release. Most of the vets that send the animals to me, do this for free. But I understand their supplies cause money and they are good enough to do this. So I like to give them something for their trouble. Vets in the big city would put the animals to sleep instead of trying to help them.

I will be posting more of the critters I have around here now that the camera is working. You see what I do in my spare time. Spare time, yeah right! If by any chance you would like to donate to help with the food bill for all of my critters, there is a Paypal button on the side of this page. I appreciate every dollar that comes in and I know the animals do too.

Well I am gong to run for now. I have talked about the love of my life enough (animals, animals and more animals). I hope you have a fantastic day!

Happy June to you all!
