So right before Hurricane Irma hit Florida (where I live, Miami to be exact) we had a beautiful full moon. Now some of my followers know full moons are kinda a big deal for me ! This was the first full moon of fall, my favorite season so needless to say I went all out. I was also worried about the hurricane so this kinda helped relieve some of the stress ! With the hurricane coming I did have to prep, so please forgive me for not getting the best pictures !
I have become slightly obsessed with this brand witch baby soap, now this is not my first post about them, but they do offer a Spell Box. The spell box includes a bath bomb for each full moon (3) and some awesome extras. The fall box was no different ! It includes the bath bombs specific to each full moon, a soap, a body scrub, a hand salve, and a body oil. The boxes include some instructions and some whitchy extras, for example a spell candle.
This month’s bath bomb was a salted caramel latte, and it came in a coffee cup. Can it get any better? Yes you can! Not only did it smell delicious, my skin has never felt softer. I could not stop rubbing my legs. I picked up more of a salty caramel than anything but hey my skin was so soft I was not complaining ! I paired this bathbomb with Lush’s Yuzu and Cocoa Shower Cream. A perfect match. For those of you that don’t know it smells of chocolate and oranges. I am devastated that they are discontinuing it !
September Bath Bomb 4/5
Yuzu and Cocoa Shower Cream 5/5
Now I do something every full moon a little special, I make Full Moon Water. I make it once a month and add it to my baths, use it to water my plants, simply leave it on my altar when I am not using it, ect.
Here is my recipe and the meaning behind the ingredients:
- A bowl
- Drinking water
- Fresh or dried leaves and/or flowers of:
- lemon – for success
- mint – for money
- lavender–psychic powers
- rose – for love
- sage – for wisdom
First when the moon rises, set up your altar with the bowl, water, herbs and flowers. Cast the circle in you usual way. Then place your bowl where the moonlight will shine into it and put the herbs in the bowl and pour water over them. Here is where you’re witchy side comes out. Hold out your receptive (non dominant) hand palm-up so the moonlight shines on it. Call out to the moon with these or similar words:
“Mother moon, please share your magic with me. I charge this water, With the power of the full moon, To achieve my dreams. May mint bring me the money To fulfill my goals, And lemon give me success in my endeavors. May lavender amplify my intuition and help me hear the voice of spirit. May rose nourish my heart and help me use my powers with love. May sage clear my mind and help me use my powers with wisdom. With herbs and moonlight This water is charged.”
Finish your ritual as usual and, if possible, leave the water out to steep in the moonlight over night.
