Pumpkin Treats for Your Skin Autumn can play some nasty tricks on your skin with its winds and chilly weather. But these great treats use pumpkin, the perfect icon of the season, to help nourish your skin beautifully, sloughing off dead cells to reveal the fresh new skin underneath. Pumpkin, after all, contains lots of anti-oxidant vitamins A and C, as well as zinc and beneficial alpha-hydroxy acids. Pumpkin Facial Mask You Will Need: 2 teaspoons cooked or canned pumpkin 1/2 teaspoon honey 1/4 teaspoon milk (or whipping cream, if your skin is very dry) Procedure: Combine ingredients and apply to a clean face with gentle circular motions, avoiding the area around your eyes. Allow mask to remain on skin for 10 to 15 minutes, then rinse with warm water, pat dry, and apply your usual moisturizer. Pumpkin, Sugar, and Spice Scrub You Will Need: 1/2 cup cooked or canned pumpkin, pureed 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon Procedure: Combine ingredients in a bowl. Stand in a tub or shower stall and use a damp washcloth to scoop some of the mixture up. Apply to body, starting with your feet and working your way up, but avoiding your face. Scrub gently using circular motions. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Witch's Soap You Will Need: 3 parts rosemary oil 2 parts pine oil 1 part cinnamon oil 1 part orange oil (Use before rituals to increase personal power) Procedure: Grate castile soap into a large bowl. Pack this into a measuring cup until you have exactly one cup. (per type of soap) Be sure to pack it. Heat 3 cups of water until almost boiling. Add the soap chips to the water. Turn off heat and whip with a wooden spoon or metal whisk until the soap is completely melted. Let sit until cool, then add 50 - 60 drops of the mixed oils. The exact amount will vary. Stop adding oils when soap is heavily scented. Using a funnel, place the liquid soap in a jar or bottle. Cap and shake vigorously to mix in the oils. If you're really short on time, you can always buy a bottle of unscented liquid soap and add the essential oils to it. (One may find infusing mixture with personalized spell can be especially beneficial.) Hair Growth Spell Use at your own risk. You Will Need: 1 small container (an empty, single-serving yogurt or pudding container will do) Enough potting soil to fill the above container 3 onion seeds A little water Procedure: Around midnight on the evening of a new moon, place the container filled with the potting soil in the light of the moon. Using the index finger of your LEFT hand, form a little hole in the soil, about an inch deep. Say aloud: Luna opportuna, in your light I cause this spell, Not to lose but gain, I wish, Not wither, but do well. Place the three seeds in the hole and cover them with the soil. Sprinkle a little water on the soil. Say aloud: New life begins and with it, growth, The swearing of a sacred oath, That plantings done, shall fill the Earth, And that from death, shall spring new birth. Place the container in a spot that receives ample sunlight. Water daily. When the plant growth begins, so also will your hair growth and its health improve. Repeat this spell as needed. Glamour And Beauty Spell The best time to perform this spell is during the Full Moon, although, you can also do it on a Friday during the Waxing Moon. You Will Need: 1 Bowl of spring water herbs for beauty, such as lavender and catnip, 1 white rose that has been separated from the stem, 1 mirror. Procedure: A ritual bath or purification ritual is recommended before performing this spell to sort-of 'clean the slate' and allow magic to start anew. Cast the circle and become calm and centered. Sit or stand facing the West. Pour the spring water into the bowl and hold it up to the Western corner. Say: I hail to the West and the forces of Water. Hear and aid me in this magic tonight. Grant me your beauty, Shape and form this face and body and let me radiate with self-love. With harm towards none, and for the free will of all, So mote it be. Set afloat the rose on top of the water and stir it with your fingers three times round in a clockwise motion. Take the flower out of the water and hold it in your hands. Say: By the powers of the West, The forces of Water, I charge this flower with love. Beauty is here, It shines with the power. Beauty is here, Contained in this flower. Keep the flower in a box along with catnip and/or lavender to remind you of your true beauty. If a friend or loved one needs the power of love and beauty, tell them the story of the rose you have blessed and give them the rose to continue it's power. Inner Beauty Spell You Will Need: 1 pink candle Procedure: Look into the flame of a pink candle. Say 3 times: Earth air fire sea let the goddesses beauty shine though me Repeat as often as needed. A True Beauty Spell You Will Need: 1 dish full of earth (good soil, not dry, dusty dirt). 1 yellow candle 1 full-sized mirror Olive, patchouli, jasmine, or cinnamon essential oil 1 small flower pot 1 flower or plant seed Procedure: Anoint the candle with the essential oil you have chosen. Place it in the center of the dish of earth. Light it and sit down with it between you and a mirror. Look deeply into the mirror, concentrate on your reflection. Without being vain, consider the things you find most beautiful about yourself- not just physically but mentally. What is your inner beauty, what is your outer beauty? It's important that you never think of what you feel must be "changed", be as positive about the beauty that you have already. Perform this ritual 3 nights in a row. Once the entire candle has burnt down, remove the wax from the dish. Place the earth from the dish inside a small flower pot and plant a seed inside it. Water it and care for it so that it grows properly. You will soon find that your beauty will grow, flourish, and shine brighter than ever before- just as the plant grows before you, emerging from its seed. Glamour And Beauty Spell You Will Need: 1 pink candle Venus or lovage roots rose petals musk oil A tea of the following... roses damiana ginger dong quai coriander green glass jar altar Venus Oil or Rose oil or perfume Aura of Enchantment Incense 1 small mirror Procedure: Mix a tea of roses, damiana, ginger, dong quai, coriander, & primrose flowers. Place the dry herbs in a green glass jar and place on your altar. On a night of Venus (Friday), take a bath in lovage roots and rose petals. Dry yourself and rub musk oil into your skin. Go to your altar nude and light a pink candle anointed with Venus oil or rose oil or perfume and burn some aura of enchantment incense. Place a small mirror on the altar. Gaze into it deeply Say: Soft, my skin as Diana's Smoldering eyes as Aradia, Sensuous as a Goddess. Figures of fire that shift and change, Change me, now, To a creature of beauty, Blessed b the Goddess of Love. Repeat each night for 7 nights, leaving the tea on the altar until the spell is finished, then drink a cup daily and wash your face with rose water upon waking. Irresistible Beauty Spell Timing: Tuesday night Where: in your bathroom You Will Need: brand-new bath oil or body wash which ever scent you like: lavender, jasmine, musk, or ylang ylang 1 chopped-up carrot (to represent earthiness and tastiness) 3 small orange candles Procedure: Draw a super hot bath, double the amount of bath stuff you usually use. Let steam fog up the mirror. With your fingertip, Write: (your name) is the BOMB! in the mirror. Chop the carrot into 3 pieces and float it in the bathwater. Light the candles. Don't get in yet it's too hot. Say 3 times: In this water so from the heat bathe me in water head to feet. When the bath as cooled a bit, hop in relax and breathe in the scented bath stuff, for at least 20 min. Blow out the candles and bury the carrot outside afterwards, and continue using the scent in the shower or bath every night. Spell To Be Seen More Attractively You Will Need: fresh rose petals vanilla candles or incense Procedure: Fill your bathtub with water and scatter some fresh rose petals in it. Light some vanilla candles and/or incense. As you lie in the water, meditate on the image you would like to project. Say: Earth, Air, Fire, Sea Let the Goddess' beauty Shine through me. Moulin Rouge Glamour Spell Purpose: For when you need to make a big entrance! You Will Need: colorful clothes topaz sapphire or ruby jewelry 4 red candles anointed with cinnamon oil Procedure: For this spell wear colorful clothes, flamboyant and luscious! However if you can't bear to venture out in anything but black. Make sure you wear opulent jewelry - stones of topaz, sapphire and ruby. Stand in the center of four lit red candles that have been anointed with cinnamon oil. You need to invoke the blessings of the night when glamour and mystery abound. Say: Guardians of the night Bless me so that I radiate a beautiful light and bewitch all held in my sight. In your minds eye see the flames leap up and join above your head, spiraling into the cosmos and know that you are the center of all beauty and glamour in the universe. The Beauty Way Magic Ritual This ritual is a non-denominational set of exercises from very ancient times, which has many magical purposes, including: Restore personal power Develop a practical working relationship with higher powers and beings or natural forces and laws Be safe and protected without the need to build walls or hide behind masks. Maintain spiritual integrity for individuals or groups during times of high external change and stress. How to Do the Beauty Way Magic Exit Ritual One of the most common forms of the Beauty Way is called the Exit Ritual. You do the Exit Ritual every time you leave an enclosed space, like your car or your house. Here's how you do the ritual. Put your focus up into the sky. Say aloud: Sky Above or Sky Father. (Note: the reason we extend our focus first is that the exit ritual is a form of asking favor from powers and beings, so it is appropriate that we go to them rather than asking them to come to us. In ritual, when we have carefully prepared sacred space, we can then invite them in and then bid them farewell). Keeping the awareness up above, extend your focus into the earth. Say aloud: And Earth Below or And Earth Mother. Then, keep the awareness of both above and below. Say aloud: I Greet You. Wait a moment and see what happens. Be alert for acknowledgment or response in one of these three ways: From within you, such as a realization, a change of attitude or belief, a new awareness. Changes in your environment, such as a sudden breeze, a change in the color of the sky, a bird or animal suddenly appearing, or a tree or shrub suddenly becoming vividly visible A response from Sky and/or Earth: a special message for you, an answer to a question, or guidance and new directions. What happens may happen in just that moment, or it may happen throughout the day. It may change the quality of our day, our awareness ... whatever we notice. You may also want to use hand gestures. Arms raised in a upward facing V for "Sky Father" and arms down in a downward facing V for "Earth Mother." Herbal Hand Washes Manual dexterity is highly prized by gamblers, especially those who play at cards. The same money-drawing herbs used for ritual bathing are also made up into lucky hand washes. These are used for cleaning and empowering the hands when going out to play at games of chance. To use herbal hand washes, the practitioner makes up a batch as a strong "tea," strains out the herbs, and stores the liquid in the refrigerator, using just enough every time to thoroughly wash the hands and prepare them for their work. Herbal hand washes may also be boiled up in concentrated form, then strained and frozen into convenient ice cubes, as described above under the heading for herbal baths. Magick Mirror Beauty Spell Timing: Full moon You Will Need: 1 small, handheld mirror 3 candles rose oil patchouli incense a little privacy Procedure: Select one color for the strongest effect, or mix and match to get a bit of each: Red if you are going for sex appeal Silver if you want to be the center of attention and display star-quality charisma Orange if you are going for general attractiveness and likeability. On a night when the moon is full, find a secluded outdoor spot. Light your incense and your three candles. Disrobe and anoint the parts of your body you would like to change with the rose oil. For example, if you think your feet are too big, anoint the tops of each foot. If you are going for an all over make-over, then anoint your forehead, your breast bone, the center of your belly, each wrist and behind each knee. Pass the mirror through the smoke of the incense, then raise it over your head, reflective surface facing the moon. Say: Wood and Wind, Ember and Mist Grant your blessed child's wish Sacred Mother charge this mirror Let your light make beauty clearer Wrap it in your gentle glow So that tis all it ever shows. Lower the mirror and gaze into it. Visualize the way you wish to look, and how you want others to see and react to you. Say: As a blossom in your glade Let my beauty never fade. Now, use the mirror's reflective surface to shine the moonlight on the place(s) you would like to make more pleasing to the eye. When you are done, wrap the mirror in a dark cloth and keep it safe. If the mirror is ever broken, so also will be the spell. Snuff the candles, dress and let the incense burn out. For an extra boost, like before a big date, business meeting or audition, anoint yourself again with rose oil and spend 10 minutes gazing into the mirror. While doing so, focus on the things you find attractive about yourself and the things you want others to see when they look at you. Traditional Witches Soap You Will Need: 4 parts of lard 3 ounces of lye 5 cups of water 1 tablespoon of lavender oil 1 tablespoon of patchouli oil 1 cup of fresh strawberry juice 1/4 cup of dried soap bark herb Procedure: Soap made from jewel weed juices removes all itches. Mediterranean Anti-Aging Skin Formula This recipe was handed down by an old family friend from Italy, who reports that all the women in her family have lovely skin. Purpose: The surprising, easy formula is particularly good for lightening age spots, resurfacing and refining dry, flaky skin, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles (with continued use), and evening out skin tone. Natural acids accelerate the removal of the top layer of dead skin cells, revealing fresher, younger skin. The formula only calls for two easy-to-obtain ingredients and I just had to laugh when I saw one of them, I was so surprised! Here is the Mediterranean secret: Lactic acid in yogurt and tartaric acid in chianti wine are the secrets that help Mediterranean women have beautiful skin! You Will Need: 1/2 cup chianti wine 1 cup fresh, thick, plain yogurt Procedure: Whip wine and yogurt together in a medium-sized bowl. Store any unused portion in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Application can be a bit messy, so it's best to do this standing in the bathtub or shower stall. Rub the mixture gently on the face as well as on rough heels, elbows, and hands. Rest for 5-15 minutes and then rinse off with water that has a splash of chianti added to it. Pat dry. Traditionally, Italian women follow this treatment with a small amount of olive oil rubbed into the skin as a moisturizer. Makes 1 full body treatment or several smaller spot treatments. Serenity Skin and Face Moisturizer You Will Need: 1 Tbs of beeswax 1 Tbs of lanolin 4 tps sweet almond oil 1 drop rose Geranium oil 2 drops of chamomile oil 2 drops of lavender oils ¼ tps borax 3 Tbs warm rose water 1 small jar Procedure: Heat 1 tablespoon each beeswax and lanolin. Warm 4 teaspoons sweet almond oil, 1 drop rose geranium oil and 2 drops each chamomile and lavender oils. Add to beeswax mixture. Dissolve 1/4-teaspoon borax in 3 tablespoons warm rose water. Add to oil mixture, beating constantly until cool. Store in small jar. Fruit Lip-Glosses I'm an avid fan of lip-gloss. I love smothering my lips in it and I can't have enough flavors. In short, I'm addicted to it. I guess it's lucky that I can make my own or I'd be bankrupt by now. The basic lip gloss is a variation on the cream recipe. It has a different consistency and different things can be added for flavors. The recipe that I use, only makes enough for two half inch by half inch containers. This might seem to be a small amount, but I've found it lasts quite well. As with most home made products, a small amount stretches a long way. Fruit Lip-Gloss You Will Need: 2 teaspoons Almond Oil 1/2 teaspoon Beeswax or Paraffin 1/2 teaspoon Copha of Ghee 1/2 teaspoon strawberry juice Essential Oil Procedure: First melt the beeswax in a slow heating pan. Then add the Copha or Ghee and melt while you mix. Add the almond oil and mix. Remove from heat and pour into containers and using a spoon. Mix until the lip-gloss begins to thicken. Add the strawberry juice and blend well into the lip-gloss. Also add the essential oil into the lip-gloss if you wish. Once the lip-gloss is fully cool, store in the refrigerator as the Copha or Ghee will spoil eventually. The strawberry juice can be substituted with the juice or thin pulp of other fruits. Raspberries, coconut, blueberries, kiwi fruit, apples and oranges work beautifully but almost any fruit will work. Just be sure not to add any seeds to the lip-gloss mixture. The seeds make applying and wearing the lip-gloss uncomfortable. Strain them out by hand or strain the juice through a piece of clean, tightly woven cotton. Honey or glucose can also be used instead of fruit juice. Although I have listed paraffin as a possible ingredient, I would suggest you use beeswax. Paraffin isn't as nice. Almond oil can be safely substituted for olive oil or other oils. Jojoba oil and coconut oil are nice and work almost as well. Also, when measuring the beeswax, just estimate. Although you can melt it and then measure, a good guess works just as well. If you use essential oils, don't use too much. One drop will be enough and remember that some essential oils shouldn't be ingested. Basic Hand Cream The price of creams and moisturizers is astonishingly high. Eight dollars or more is far too much when you can make it very easily and cheaply at home. Although it might seem daunting at first, it is very easy and you will get a lot out of making your own creams. You also have the freedom to scent and change the consistency as you wish. By making your own creams, you also know what is in them and won't risk having a reaction from the chemicals they love to add to creams. When making a cream, don't let yourself be distracted. It shouldn’t take more than half an hour at the most. The reason you don't want to be distracted by your cat biting your toes is that beeswax can burn and when the cream cools, it can form lumps. Set aside a little bit of time and go for it. I can now make a good cream in fifteen minutes. You Will Need: 1/3 Cup Of Almond Oil 1/6 Cup Beeswax 1 Tablespoon Herb Tea Procedure: Melt the beeswax in a heavy saucepan that is slow to heat while mixing carefully. When the beeswax is melted add the almond oil. You can use other oils but for a cream, almond oil is best as you will use it every day. Don't panic when you find that the beeswax turns milky when the oil is added. As the oil is cooler than the wax, it starts to solidify. Keep mixing until the wax is again melted and the ingredients are mixed well. Remove the saucepan from the heat and pour the mixture into a small glass jar. Make sure ahead of time that your hand can reach the bottom of the jar or you'll find you won't be able to get to the cream. As soon as the cream is in the jar, put the lid on and start shaking. Keep shaking until the mixture has cooled slightly. Take the lid off and add the herbal tea. This should be prepared ahead of time and perhaps left to steep overnight. Take a fork and start mixing. You'll have to keep mixing until the cream is cool. To hasten this process, you can submerge the glass jar in water but be careful to mix fast or it will turn lumpy. If the cream is lumpy, it doesn't really matter. The smooth texture is only to please you and so that the ingredients are mixed evenly. If it is very lumpy, fill the saucepan with hot water and simmer with the glass submerged in the water. Stir the cream as you do this until the lumps disappear. Then remove and keep stirring until cool. Essential oils if you use them should be added while the cream is just warm enough to aid their spread through the cream. If the cream is too hot, the oils will just evaporate. Don't add too much or it may irritate the areas you use the cream on. Patience is called for when making creams. The product is worth the care! A cream made with mint tea is wonderful on chapped or dry skin and a rose cream is wonderful. The ratio of oil and beeswax can be changed and experimented with so that the cream is thicker or thinner. Honey or glycerin can also be added. Natural Hair Gel Purpose: If you've had problems with hair products but need a hair gel, this might just help you. It's all-natural and I can guarantee that it works. For people with very long hair, the weight will tend to drag it down, but it will still work quite well. It also just washes out. You Will Need: egg whites honey or glucose Procedure: In a bowl beat the egg whites until stiff. This will take some effort but make sure that they are nice and fluffy before you mix the other ingredient in. The amount of honey or glucose is up to you. Remember that honey and glucose is sticky so don't add more than a tablespoon or so. Again, blend keeping the eggs fluffy. Once everything is well blended, you can use. I have always used this hair gel without scent but scents can be added using essential oils. Don't add to much or you're hair will turn out greasy. Honey will condition your hair but will also lighten it after a while so if you don't want your hair lightened or if you have a color in it, you might want to use glucose. Herb teas can also be added but this will decrease the sticking power of the gel. Hand and Body Oils Hand and body oils are some of the easiest things to make. Simply a blend of a carrier oil and an essential oil, hand and body oils can be made by anyone. Their uses can be either for beauty or Magick. When making these oils for either purpose, blend them to suite you. As there are plenty of aromatherapy books around, I suggest you invest in one. They can be a great guide to which oils to use for which purpose. They also have the advantage of being fairly safe guides. Remember that essential oils are very, very concentrated. You only need a few drops and all oils will irritate your skin if used in excess. Your blends should also be simple. More than three or four oils will result in a muddy and clouded scent. Carrier oils, the oil that is mixed with the essential oil, should not have a strong natural scent and shouldn't harm your skin. Olive or vegetable oils can be used if there is no other choice. Sweet almond oil is the carrier oil recommended by most Witches but it hard to find at times. First, decide on how much body or hand oil you want to make. Using a little less oil than you plan to, measure out your carrier oil. Into the carrier oil, add the essential oils. Always record your recipes so that you remember which blends you like the best. This will also be of help if you find a certain blend irritates your skin. When you choose your essential oil, make sure that the oils either smell good to you or have some significance. The lists you will find on the internet on Magickal properties are good guidelines but your intuition can usually choose well for any purpose. Choosing oils that make you feel good helps enhance your powers. If you wish to empower your oil, do so after completion. Dedicate it like you would any other tool and store. All body oils or essential oils should be stored in dark glass containers. Light can damage the delicate fragrances and cause them to spoil. Face Wash This face wash is best for oily skin. Lemon can cut the natural oils on your face and make it easier to wash away built up dirt. Lemon face washes can also be used after removing heavy makeup to get rid of the film left by your cleanser. It is strong so rinse your face afterwards with water. This recipe makes a large quantity, and stores well in a refrigerator. You Will Need: juice of 2-3 lemons hot water 2 tablespoons of honey 3 whole cloves Procedure: First juice the lemons. Once you have strained the juice add it to a bowl. Heat the water and then add. The amount of water you wish to add is your decision. The wash should be very lemony but not enough to irritate your skin. Think of making a strong lemon tea but for your face. The honey and cloves should be added once the water and lemon is mixed together. Let it sit and cool. Use and store as soon as it has cooled. As you probably have guessed, this is a great recipe for a tea too! I had always made it for tea and then one day I wondered how well it would work on my face. Adding a little brandy or sherry in tea for m is wonderful too. For people with very sensitive skin, decrease the amount of lemon you use. Chamomile can also be used to sooth the skin. A Witch friend adds lemon peel to her face wash. She says that it enhances the lemon, especially with storage. I find that it makes the face wash a little harsh and bitter. Orange peel can be added instead. Mud Masks Mud masks aren't really made of garden soil. Garden earth would be far to rough to put on a face and can contain bacteria that could be harmful. The main ingredient of a mud mask is clay. Clay is fine and won't irritate the skin and as it is difficult for air to permeate clay and so, make it difficult for bacteria to grow. Go to a craft store near you and ask for clay or powdered clay . There are several colors and although some Witches say that certain clays must be used for different types of skin, I feel that any good quality clay should do. You Will Need: small amount of clay water herbs/essential oil plain yogurt if needed Procedure: Depending on how much mask you want to make, measure out your clay. Using a potato masher or a fork, start mashing. While you mash, add water until it becomes more pliable or wetter depending of whether the clay is in powdered or natural form . Once it reaches the consistency you wish it to be, add the herbs or oil. Should you have a difficult time reaching the consistency you want, add a little plain yogurt. Like oatmeal masks, the making of a clay mask is a process. It can take time, especially if the clay is not powdered. I was always told that the time that something takes to be made, is the time in which you reflect on why you're making it and empowering it. Any left over mask can be kept covered in a refrigerator. Oatmeal Mask Oatmeal is a great base for a mask. It sooths and it moisturizes very well. Almost any oil and herb can be added to oatmeal, depending on need. Wheat germ and ground sesame seeds can also be added at will. I have also heard of a combination oatmeal and clay mask. When making masks, have fun with their creation. Use herbs you know will help your skin and don't be impatient while making your mask. It can be a slow process as you should never buy qui ck oats or three-minute oats. These kinds have been treated with chemicals and won't do you skin any favors. You Will Need: 1 cup of oatmeal 1-2 tablespoons of apricot oil herbs/essential oil hot water This recipe is very flexible. I rarely measure what I add so don't worry too much about whether you have to much or little of one thing. Add the oatmeal and herbs or oil into a bowl. Then add the oil and water. Only add enough water to moisten the oats and form a thick paste. With a fork, mush them together. You should let this sit for a while for the oats to absorb the water and the herbs or oil work through the oats. After about fifteen minutes and if it is cool, you can use. Any you do not use can be covered and put in the refrigerator for later use. If you do not have a good source of dried herbs, I do know a Witch who uses herbal teas from a heathfood store. If you wish to use a tea, make a strong brew and use that instead of water. Another alternative is to open the teabag and add to the oatmeal. Just remember to read the ingredient list on the tea packet. Sometimes they will add chemicals you don't really want on your face. An alternative to herbs is grated cucumber. Just add to the oat mash. Casting A Glamour Spell To Look Beautiful To People You Will Need: 1 rose quartz crystal 6 rose petals 1 small bottle of witch hazel Procedure: Look at your face in a mirror and all of its flaws. Visualize your face changing into the face you want and desire. Rub the rose quartz lightly over the problem areas and say the following.

Take the 6 rose petals in your right hand. Say: Venus, One of beauty rare. I offer you these petals fair. Bless them with your loveliness and bring the beauty I request. Rub the petals over any line, wrinkle, imperfection etc. Then drop them in the witch hazel. Cap the bottle tightly and give it six good shakes a day for a week. At the end of the week, use it everyday as a toner after face washing. Apply it. Say: Imperfections, go away. Beauty of Venus, come forth this day. Spell To Keep Beauty From Fading Say: When all your face appears most fair, When the comets and meteors gild your hair, And in your eyes the moon and sun Contest, surrender, and burn as one, When ivory Venus smoothes your brow, And Mars recurves your lips' red bow, Make haste to utter this binding verse And hold the stars on their kindest course... Figure of fire, That shifts and changes, Planets that move By heaven's hinge, Be siged and fixed Forever here, And close my image Within thy sphere Measure a yard of golden string Loose from your fingers let it swing, Then tie it in thirteen sturdy knots, Hide it among your scents and pots. Moonshine Starshine Glamour Spell Timing: Full moon You Will Need: 1 mirror picture of the area you want changed 1 candle (pink) or some flower scented incense Procedure: Take a mirror and go outside. (if you can't then open a window, make sure the moon is reflected on the mirror) Take a piece of a picture (hair, lips, eyes, whatever you are interested in changing) Place it on the mirror and concentrate on it Say 3 times: Moonshine, Starlight, let the wind carry your light, let your glow cover my body, and let your shine cover every eye.

Say it 3 times and when you are finished light a candle (pink) or some flower scented incense. 5 Hair Concerns Tip #1 Purpose: Mositen dry hair You Will Need: olive oil 1 towel shampoo Procedure: If you have very dry hair, warm some olive oil and apply it to the hair. Work slowly over the head, working the oil in and being careful to especially cover the ends of the hair with oil. Then dip a towel in hot water, wring it out, and wrap it around your hair. When the towel has cooled, reheat it and wrap it around again. Do this for a total of an hour, then thoroughly shampoo the hair. Tip #2 Purpose: Male hair restoration You Will Need: tea made from wild cherry bark For men, a tea made from Wild Cherry Bark is thought to be an excellent hair tonic and hair restorer. A strong mixture worked into the scalp over a period of time is said to grow hair on a bald man.
