DIY Casting Herbs

Casting herbs are a blend of herbs, spices and other ingredients (crystals included) that you can blend together as potpourri or incense.  They can be “cast” on to burning charcoal or a bonfire like incense to enjoy, enrich and encourage change or new beginnings.

Blend together a handful each of dried orange and lemons, cinnamon sticks, anise, basil and pinch of carnelian stone chips. Add a teaspoon to burning charcoal, boiling water (as a simmer) or fire pit.

Cleansing & Charging Carnelian

~ Cleansing a crystal is always a good idea to rid it of energies (negative or otherwise) that it may have picked up during handling and excessive use.

~ Charging a crystal is bringing its energy levels back up, after use and cleansing. Like re-charging a battery after it has lost its energy.  A great way to do this (and remind you that it is time to do so) is during a full moon.

The Power of Color

Color plays a major role in determining how your crystal can help you.  A crystal’s color is due to its combination of minerals, which give it it’s own personality.  It contributes in what attracts you to it.  The psychological aspects of color determine how a crystal’s healing properties work.
