So the most awkward draft but

I'd like to cast an anxiety reducing spell, but I'm having a lot of trouble with finding a spell that doesn't involve lavender in some way. (I'm highly allergic to lavender, and I'm casting this spell to improve my health, so using lavender in any way would not be very logical.) Do you possibly have any spells or recommendations for writing one that would help achieve that purpose? (Please and thank you.) <a href=takuthespookyscaryskeleton">

Why is it so many people rely on lavender for anything that relives anxiety but have like…twelve things for protection?

Here is a list of acceptable substitutes:

  • Lily
  • Violet
  • Sweetgrass
  • Tuberose (For peaceful sexuality)
  • Sage
  • Passion Flower (if you want love as well)
  • Magnolia
  • Myrrh
  • Ylang Ylang (Especially to battle depression)
  • Aloe (for peace of body)
  • Pennyroyal
  • Heather (Plant it around your home for prolonged peace)
  • Hyacinth (Banishment of bad sleep or bad feelings when trying to sleep)
  • Gardenia (Especially to escape the sadness of loss)
  • Coffee, no really…friggen Coffee is great for nightmare banishment and those repetitive bad thoughts.
  • Peppermint
  • Coriander, especially when worked through kitchen magic and meals.
  • Myrtle
  • Cilantro (For peace of the home, especially through family ties)
  • Tobacco (is anyone surprised?)
  • Dulse (Sea magic)
  • Olive
  • Orange Blossoms (especially if you want to add a dash of happiness)
  • Vervaine (Magical Peace)
  • Plum
  • Rose (also good for romantic peace, good for healing relationships)

So shame on people who fallback on lavender. So go forth, relax and put yourself at ease.

As an aromatherapist, I can also recommend:

-Roman Chamomile

-German Chamomile

-Patchouli

-Sandalwood (Personal favorite)

-Rosewood

-Geranium

-Catnip

-Bergamot (Amazing!)

-Vetiver (Bit of an acquired taste though)

Also, do note that Orange Blossoms are also often called Neroli.

Hope that helps <3

Thank you very much for the additions!

I have written. For the past two years of my life, I have written. Like many people, I started because of love & because of love I’ve never stopped.

Today was a reaffirming one.The boy’s supportive of my writing & my career in his own stoic way, but it’s not something he gets excited over with…

You have inspired me immensely. My tears shed with yours, my dear. I don’t know your writing very well, as I’ve only just started reading you, but I can’t WAIT to read that novel. Tally, ho!!!!

Writing is something that you don’t know how to do. You sit down and it’s something that happens, or it may not happen. So, how can you teach anybody how to write? It’s beyond me, because you yourself don’t even know if you’re going to be able to. I’m always worried, well, you know, every time I go upstairs with my wine bottle. Sometimes I’ll sit at that typewriter for fifteen minutes, you know. I don’t go up there to write. The typewriter’s up there. If it doesn’t start moving, I say, well this could be the night that I hit the dust.

I used to think we’d all shine on, but I don’t know that I believe it anymore. He didn’t know what kind of sunglasses to wear, so maybe John was wrong about that too. These are the things that I think about, staring at the ceiling with her bare breasts resting warmly against my chest. Her leg is…

The whole world was waiting
with stinking, baited breath.
We strutted past
though,
determined not to let it get to us.

Us.

We who’d slayed dragons
and climbed mountains
and who knew each other’s hands
better than we knew anything else
on the planet
or within ourselves.

We who’d walked on…

“Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”Shut up already.

The ALS Association has a 4-star rating from Charity Watchdog. 
And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection. 

As someone who has watched a family member die from a neuro-degenerative disease; funding to develop better wheelchairs and bedsore creams is *just* as important as funding research to cure the disease itself…

A friend of mine posted an update from one of HER friends to FB earlier.  Her dad has ALS.  The ALS foundation came out to see if they could put in a ramp for his wheelchair, but they couldn’t afford it because of the kind of ramp he needed for the kind of house they had.
This week they called back and said hey, the thing is, we suddenly have a bunch of money, so we’re coming out to build that ramp.  And they did.  She posted pics.
So if you feel like bitching about the ice bucket challenge…reconsider.
