Healing Oil


  • 1 Tbs Rosemary
  • 3 Bay leaves; crushed
  • 1 Tbs Mint
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • bottle or jar with lid

Put the oil in a small pot over low heat. Add the herbs, swirl to combine. Allow the herbs to simmer until you can smell them in the air, stirring occasionally. Once you can smell them, remove from heat and let sit for 1-2 hours. Strain the herbs out and pour the oil in the prepared jar or bottle. Cap and store in a dry cool environment.

Note: This oil is not for consumption. Primary uses are as an additive for spells. If you intend to use on skin do a small test patch first to check for reactions.



Rose Petal WitchHazel
Gather the rose petals, make sure they’re bug free and then stuff them into a jar. (Jar size will vary depending on how many petals you can gather.) You want to fill the jar rather full, but not packed too tightly. (If you don’t have fresh petals, you can use dried. You won’t get as stunning of a color, but it will still work!)
Pour the witch hazel extract over the petals until the jar is completely filled. Cap with a non-metallic cap and let sit in a cool, dark place for about a week. Strain and pour the resulting colored liquid into a glass jar for storage. It should stay fresh for several months, though the color will fade over time.
Rub on bruises several times a day to help speed up healing time.
Witch hazel is an astringent and antiseptic, so is helpful for spot controlling acne or used as an overall facial toner.
Put some in a small spray bottle and store in the fridge for cooling relief of sunburn.
Use for diaper rash. (Patch test on a small area first.)
Carefully dab under your eyes to help firm up the skin and reduce the appearance of under-eye bags. (Don’t let any get in your eyes!)
Witch hazel so can be used for treating varicose veins and hemorrhoids as well.
Apply to itchy skin and rashes caused by poison oak and poison ivy.

It’s worth noting though, that witch hazel can cause mild photo sensitivity. It’s a good idea to wait like 20 min before going outside after putting it on your skin.


Emma Watson for Wonderland Magazine

The wizard
Son of the human race
Reborn into magic
Escaping from his past 
So far and so tragic…
Immortal and wicked
A master of knowledge
The guardian of elements
Witchcraft was his college…
Wizard master
Spreading disaster…
A black cat for friend
A crow on his shoulder
His soul is too strong
No one can hold her…
Alone late at night
He conjures in gloom
To torment the living
To bring them their doom…
Wizard master
Spreading disaster…
He will keep on living
Escaping from hell
For even life can’t defeat
The power of his spell…
