Winter Solstice is coming!!
The date varies from December 20 to December 23 depending on the year in the Gregorian calendar. Yule is also known as the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere and the summer solstice in the southern hemisphere due to the seasonal differences.
Yule, (pronounced EWE-elle) is when the dark half of the year relinquishes to the light half. Starting the next morning at sunrise, the sun climbs just a little higher and stays a little longer in the sky each day. Known as Solstice Night, or the longest night of the year, the sun’s “rebirth” was celebrated with much joy. On this night, our ancestors celebrated the rebirth of the Oak King, the Sun King, the Giver of Life that warmed the frozen Earth. From this day forward, the days would become longer.
Bonfires were lit in the fields, and crops and trees were “wassailed” with toasts of spiced cider. Children were escorted from house to house with gifts of clove spiked apples and oranges which were laid in baskets of evergreen boughs and wheat stalks dusted with flour. The apples and oranges represented the sun. The boughs were symbolic of immortality (evergreens were sacred to the Celts because they did not “die” thereby representing the eternal aspect of the Divine). The wheat stalks portrayed the harvest, and the flour was accomplishment of triumph, light, and life. Holly and ivy not only decorated the outside, but also the inside of homes, in hopes Nature Sprites would come and join the celebration. A sprig of Holly was kept near the door all year long as a constant invitation for good fortune to visit tthe residents. Mistletoe was also hung as decoration. It represented the seed of the Divine, and at Midwinter, the Druids would travel deep into the forest to harvest it.
The ceremonial Yule log was the highlight of the Solstice festival. In accordance to tradition, the log must either have been harvested from the householder’s land, or given as a gift… it must never have been bought. Once dragged into the house and placed in the fireplace it was decorated in seasonal greenery, doused with cider or ale, and dusted with flour before set ablaze by a piece of last years log, (held onto for just this purpose). The log would burn throughout the night, then smolder for 12 days after before being ceremonially put out. Ash is the traditional wood of the Yule log. It is the sacred world tree of the Teutons, known as Yggdrasil. An herb of the Sun, Ash brings light into the hearth at the Solstice.
A different type of Yule log, and perhaps one more suitable for modern practitioners would be the type that is used as a base to hold three candles. Find a smaller branch of oak or pine, and flatten one side so it sets upright. Drill three holes in the top side to hold red, green, and white (season), green, gold, and black (the Sun God), or white, red, and black (the Great Goddess). Continue to decorate with greenery, red and gold bows, rosebuds, cloves, and dust with flour.
Many customs created around Yule are identified with Christmas today. If you decorate your home with a Yule tree, holly or candles, you are following some of these old traditions. The Yule log, (usually made from a piece of wood saved from the previous year) is burned in the fire to symbolize the Newborn Sun/Son.
Deities of Yule: All Newborn Gods, Sun Gods, Mother Goddesses, and Triple Goddesses. The best known would be the Dagda, and Brighid, the daughter of the Dagda. Brighid taught the smiths the arts of fire tending and the secrets of metal work. Brighid’s flame, like the flame of the new light, pierces the darkness of the spirit and mind, while the Dagda’s cauldron assures that Nature will always provide for all the children.

It was believed that witches made a pact with Satan, and many plants and herbs were considered evil especially if they had a name associated with the Devil. There are plants believed to bring about evil or bad luck, especially if they are planted near the home or bloom out of season. A bunch of primroses or daffodils numbering thirteen, was believed to affect the fertility of chickens and geese. Blossoming blackthorn brought into the house is the harbinger of illness or death, broom brought into the house will bring bad luck. Bad luck is brought into the home with any plant, tree, or shrub that blooms out of season, in particular fruit bearing ones. Yew should never be brought indoors as according to folklore it would result in the death of a family member and if it was brought into the home at Christmas a family member would meet their death before the following Christmas. If parsley is given as a gift if will bring with it bad luck, and if a hydrangea is planted near the house or brought indoors daughters will remain unmarried. It is said that cutting down a healthy tree, especially an oak tree (sacred to the ancient Druid priests), is a most unfortunate thing to do and bad luck will follow.
To those who wish to protect themselves against malevolence, they wear or carry a mojo bag filled with one or more protective herbs. The protective herbs are – lavender, castor beans, henna, angelica, anise (aniseed), betony leaves, pennyroyal, sage, rue, lime tree twigs. These herbs can also be sprinkled around the home, they can also be hung in windowsills or doorways, be place under the bed or under the pillow. Many involved in occult practices believe in the evil eye and herbs can be used to combat the power of the evil eye. The evil eye was known as the mal occhio, the belief is that someone is born with this power over others. There are certain plants with the name of the Devil, and the using of these plants magically and medicinally by witches, most of whom were healers, automatically linked them with the Prince of Darkness.

One of the most popular herbs was oregano which was carried in the form of a herbal amulet, by carrying this the Devil could neither tempt nor harm a person. Many inquisitors while torturing witches, burned oregano believing the smoke was effective in stopping the Devil from assisting his witches.
Parsley had Satanic connotations, and due to its slow germination parsley seed was said to go seven times to hell in order to obtain the Devil’s permission to grow. People were very superstitious about parsley, with many believing that if parsley seeds failed to germinate the individual who had planted the seeds would die within a year. Monkey puzzle trees were planted in or near graveyards in England, thus preventing the Devil from entering burial grounds and taking the souls of the dear departed.

It was hung over doorways and windows, it was also placed under beds. For protection and to drive away evil, it was said that St, John’s wort should be gathered on a Friday, made into an amulet and hung around the neck. In the 17th century children were made to wear a piece of mistletoe on a necklace, this was done to protect them against evil spirits and the Devil.

There is a wonderful story behind Thieves oil.
During the plague a band of thieves were stealing from the ill, dying and dead. When caught and questioned as to why they never got ill despite being in very close proximity to those with the disease they revealed that they were spice merchants and had developed a special blend of herbs and spices which helped to protect them from the plague when rubbed on their throats, ears, noses and hands.
Thieves oil is anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-septic and anti-fungal and can be used as a hand sanitizer, rubbed on the chest and neck and used as an air purifier to protect from cold, coughs and flu.
Thieves oil is named as such because it is rumored that the original blend was given to the King of England after a band of thieves who had been stealing from the ill, dying and dead during the plague, were caught. Demanding to know how they stayed well even after being intimately close with those who were infected, the thieves explained that they had been spice merchants and traders pre-plague and had developed this blend of herbs and spices, and rubbed it on their throats, ears, noses and hands before going out on their raids.
You can buy Thieves Oil online, but I prefer to make my own – much more economical and I never have to re-order because one “batch” lasts a long, long time!
1 Tablespoon (15 ml) Clove Essential Oil
1 Tablespoon (15 ml) Lemon Essential Oil
2-1/2 teaspoons (12.5 ml) Cinnamon (Cassia) Bark Essential Oil
2 (10 ml) teaspoons Eucalyptus Essential Oil
2 (10 ml) teaspoons Rosemary Essential Oil
A carrier oil of your choice*
Dark-colored bottles with droppers (I have the 1-ounce size, some with regular screw tops and a few dropper tops)
*The carrier oil I tend to prefer is Sweet Almond Oil because it’s easily available, is safe for newborns on up and I always have it on hand for use as a massage oil, carrier oil or just after-bath oil for those sensitive-skinned ones living among us. It also sinks into the skin easily without being greasy, and can be used at 100% dilution. Other carrier oils you can use at 100% dilution include grapeseed and apricot kernel or if you want to blend carrier oils, try 10% avocado or jojoba, mixed in, among others.
In a glass measuring cup, measure out all of the essential oils.
It ends up making around an eighth of a cup of essential oil blend.
But remember, these are essential oils we are talking about. They are POTENT and are almost never, ever used without being diluted into either a carrier oil or in water. An eighth of a cup of undiluted essential oil blend is A LOT. It has lasted me over a year and I’ve given a few (diluted) bottles away. Just saying.
How to use Thieves Oil
I use Thieves Oil, if not daily, then at least several times a week. I keep two bottles handy at all times : one undiluted (or, “neat”) and another diluted with my favorite carrier oil (I tend to favor almond or jojoba oil) for use topically. Please make sure that your undiluted and your diluted bottles are CAREFULLY and CLEARLY marked as such!
To dilute your Thieves Oil for use topically, simply blend :
12-30 drops of essential oil blend with 2 Tablespoons of carrier oil, or up to 5 drops per teaspoon of carrier oil,
You can use your DILUTED Thieves Oil, topically :
As a hand sanitizer
Massaged onto the bottom of the feet to ward away cold and flu
Massaged onto the small of your back and the back of your neck to minimize aches and pains during cold and flu season
Rubbed into the chest, neck and ears to ward away the cold and flu and help open up the sinuses
Dab a drop on your temples to help ward away a headache
Dab a drop on an insect bite to make it stop itching
You can use your UNDILUTED Thieves Oil by adding :
1-9 drops in a bowl of just-boiled water or a humidifer for room purification
1 drop per ounce of water for use as an all-purpose disinfecting spray (you can also use this as a room or fabric/mattress spray at this ratio)
a few drops mixed in to your steam vacuum or steam mop water,
a few drops mixed with baking soda to use as a disinfectant scrub (sinks, bathtubs, etc.),
a maximum of 8 drops in a bath or shower (less for children, more for adults)
8 drops to a diffuser to clean the air (I do this all the time during cold and flu season)
5-10 drops in your washing machine to disinfect toys, sheets, etc.
add a drop or two to a soft cloth to clean and disinfect items like cell phones or computers
Make sure to err on the low side of dilution for children or pregnant women**, and on the higher side for adults.
Make sure that you clearly label your essential oil blends and keep them away from children. Yes, they are safe to use, sparingly on children***, but they should be administered by the hands of a knowledgeable adult.
I’ve seen stories online from people who use Thieves Oil for all manner of things from a foot bath when dealing with athletes foot (due to it’s anti-fungal properties), mixed with vinegar as a mouthwash (do NOT ingest) and even for clearing up mold in the home. I haven’t tried any of these options, I don’t necessarily support or recommend them, but they are out there if you are interested.
Plant magic is an age old tradition dating back to ancient Egyptian times, plant magic has been used for many purposes such as healing, self empowerment, love spells and protection, each plant has its own magical properties and strengths and can be used to add power to any kind of spell, plant magic will have the desired result regardless of the strength of the caster due to the fact the plants themselves have high levels of magical properties contained within. With its multiple uses and the speed and effectiveness of its power plant magic is one of the most popular arts used today.
Witches are not the only ones who have been using herbs and plants for healing, nowadays it is common practice in most alternative medicines to use a variety of herbs and plants for healing, most dietary products or heath food supplements used today are based around certain plants and herbs, Eucalyptus for a sore throat, coffee beans for a headache.
A simple method to enhance any spell is to sprinkle specific herbs into the flame of a candle during your ritual this will add extra power to your spells. Other magic that can be done with herbs is leave small amounts of herbs around your home this can remove negative energies, offer protection, bring happiness, promote good heath and bring a peaceful energy within. Once a common practice was to carry a charm bag with a variety of herbs to bring about many things such as a protection or to attract love. It is an old lore that the best time to perform plant magic or collect herbs is at night especially under the full moon it said the plants and herbs are at their most powerful at these times.
Over the years the witches began to use codes in their workings, hence now you hear off eye of newt and tongue of dog which are codes for very simple and attainable flowers and plants. The witches would have a great old laugh about the unsuspecting fool who stumbled upon their recipes and went on searching for the ingredients, battling for a lions hearts, a bulls horn, a mother’s milk and an Englishman’s foot. The most famous reference of using plants and codes is William Shakespeare’s play Macbeth
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg and howlet’s wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
Though he is not talking about animals he’s referring to simple plant and herbs.
All herbs have a particular vibration and are mixed in such a way that when they are used they bring the body into balance, as all ailments occur when your body is out of balance, the possibilities when using herbal magic is unlimited, or only limited by your imagination. It is also important when using herbs to use your intuition, to be guided by what is right for you, much like the crystal chooses you, so are there certain herbs that will work well with your biological makeup. If you are ingesting herbs such as in herbal tea make sure that you know that the herb you are using is actually edible.
Edward Bach, the well known Bach flower remedialist, maintained that all flowers and plants have a frequency and it is important to choose the correct frequency for your particular ailment.
Create a magical spiritual garden for yourself and practice the witches traditional magic using the plants and herbs from your garden, write in your “Book of Shadows” and create recipes for healing, love, happiness and abundance.

A sprig placed under your pillow or bed for protection and to induce restful sleep.
Plant and herb magic has been used for decades and it is again enjoying a resurgence as people want to use more natural therapies, you will naturally attune to the herb that is right for you at any particular time. Your plant and herb magic practices will become more powerful, potent as you begin to understand the frequency of each plan and herb you use, you need to learn and understand the smell, texture and properties of all the ingredients you will be using and never use anything until you have first got the go ahead from a medical practitioner as plants and herbs can also be used in conjunction with more mainstream medicinal practices.

To protect the home have some white heather in your kitchen. Witches also love to use hydrangea flowers in their magic spells, and for protecting the home sprinkle oregano around the outside while chanting, “I am protected”. Mistletoe can be worn or placed around the home for protection also. The Druids burned elder for blessings and elder was often hanging over people’s doors and windows. The following are plants used by witches;

On Midsummer’s Day, the 24th June the Druids traditionally cut mistletoe as the plants powers were at their most potent on this day. Many witches still follow this tradition, as it is believed that it has healing and divinatory properties. Another plant to be used as this time is Saint John’s wort which is used for healing. Vervain is a multipurpose plant also harvested on Midsummer and used for divination, healing and protection. The plants mentioned can be harvested at other times of the year, but Midsummer is said to be when they are at their most potent. Some witches harvested chicory on Midsummer’s Day to use for invisibility purposes. Wood betony can be placed under the pillow to stop nightmares, or placed in an amulet to be worn for protection.
Many witches gather thirteen times a year when the moon is full, this gathering is called an Esbat this is also a time for them to practice powerful magic, they would each bring an offering with them. Most witches have an herb garden inhabited by fairies and other spirit creatures, and as they spend time tending their garden they often find that they are inspired to make magic.
Botanomancy which is the practice of divination using herbs is an ancient method of magic practiced by witches, they would burn plants and trees and read the message in the ashes.
The Druids held rituals associated with trees and plants, they used vervain and mistletoe for divination, for healing and for protection. Witches of long ago would sprinkle incense on a fire and watch how the incense smoke drifted to give them a yes or no answer to a question, if the smoke emanating from the incense drifts to the right this is yes, if the smoke drifts to the left the answer is no. If the smoke breaks up this means take care of your finances, if the smoke clusters and moves upwards this is a good sign for new enterprise, and financial gain. If the base of the smoke is very thin and wider at the top you are urged to move forward with care and show caution with money. Choose carefully the people you spend time with. If the smoke of the incense breaks in two it means you should slow down and give yourself some time to meditate, you may be taking on too much and are overwhelmed.
In ancient Greece the petals and leaves of roses were used to foretell the future, a rose with a concave shape is for answering a yes or no question, the diviner holds the rose petal and meditates, then press both hands together in a clapping motion. A burst petal is a yes answer and a whole petal is a no answer.
A form of divination that psychic witches use when a couple want to know their fate, is the taking of two acorns on the night of a full moon, the initials of one partner is written on one acorn, and the initials of the other partner is written on the other acorn. The acorns are placed six centimeters apart then placed in a cauldron filled with water, their movements are observed. If they move towards each other the couple will stay together, if they move apart, the couple will not stay together. If the acorns don’t move at all the message given is to ask the question at a later date as their fate is not yet clear.
There is a superstition that requires you to take a root of ribwort and place it beneath a stone, to then leave it overnight, you do this when the moon is full. If there is marriage for you within twelve months, the initials of the one you are to marry will be found on the plant’s root. Another way of divining your marital future is to pick twelve sage leaves during the evening of Halloween, and on the twelfth leaf you will see the face of your future partner. If no face appears, it means you will not be marrying within the next twelve months.
To find out if your lover has been faithful to you, take a bay leaf during the evening a full moon, prick your lover’s name upon the leaf with a pin, when this is done place the leaf under your pillow before you go to sleep. In the morning look to see if the leaf has turned brown, if it has you will know that your lover is faithful to you. If the leaf is the same colour, there is deception around you.
If you sleep with ivy leaves, mistletoe or myrtle under your pillow, and you are unattached, you will dream of your future partner in marriage. Or on a Saturday night at midnight you can take seven leaves from a holly plant, tie the leaves in a handkerchief, or a piece of square fabric, and place the handkerchief under your pillow before going to sleep, this will also encourage you to dream of your marriage partner to be.
Wizards often divine the weather by counting the berries on a holly tree, if the tree is abundant with berries the weather will not be good and there will be many storms, if there are few, the weather will be mild.
All witches are adept at tea leaf reading and this art has been practiced for hundreds of years. Make a pot of tea and turn the teapot once to the right and twice to the left, you then pour the tea into a teacup, when you have finished drinking the tea, swirl the cup clockwise and tip the cup upside down on a napkin. The leaves are then examined and the shapes deciphered, such as if you see a heart you know that romance is in the air, if two hearts are together there is to be a marriage ceremony. If a dagger shape is seen this means you should take care of your health, the shape of the moon foretells change to very soon take place in the querants life. The shape of the snake is warning you to be careful of who you spend time with there is deception around you, a bird spells a journey to come, a cat represents someone who is not being honest with you, and a dog represents time spent with a close friend. Dots are telling you that there is money to come, a star, or horseshoe is indicative of luck to come your way. If a triangle or a pyramid is seen something utterly wonderful is to take place in your life, these are extremely fortuitous signs, you can expect great success. Many symbols in teacup reading are symbolic, like any form of divination some things that are divined are symbolic and others are actual, how a reading progresses depends on the ability of the psychic reader. Witches sprinkle tealeaves around the house for luck and protection, and if tea is spilled it indicates good luck. Very strong tea suggests that a new friend is on the horizon. If the top is left off the teapot accidentally it suggests a stranger in your midst.
All witches will tell you that it is bad luck for more than one person to pour from a pot of tea, bubbles on top of your teacup means you will have financial luck. If the bubbles are near the side of the cup you can expect romance. There is a tealeaf reading article in Witcheslore that will give you more details on how to do a tealeaf reading. When making a pot of tea a witch will always tell you to stir the tea clockwise, witches often foretold a child or twins and whether a woman would soon find herself pregnant, an adept tealeaf reader is able to give time with a certain degree of accuracy. Never throw you tealeaves away, always tip them into your garden.
A witch uses mugwort for psychic clarity and to help them connect to the astral realms, when making mugwort tea the goddess Bast is called upon to bless the tea.
For centuries witches have been healing with plants, flowers and herbs, such as using foxglove as an astringent and for a sore throat, it can also be carried on the person or sprinkled around the home for protective purposes. Mugwort tea is useful if you wish to have prophetic dreams, it is also an aid in astral travel, if taken before retiring for the night it is a useful gateway to other dimensions. Dandelion tea helps to call the spirits, and is an aid in foretelling the future as it helps heighten psychic abilities.

Elder twig has been used by witches over the centuries as an antidote for rheumatism and peppermint tea is often used for nausea. To relieve joint pain, witches have healed using tea made from willow bark.
As witches often cast wart on the nose spells they use dried bean rubbed into the rubbed onto the wart, or they chant the following to help the war disappear.

Be gone be gone
Magic mine power strong
Wart be gone by midnight hour
It will be done
It will be done
It will be done
Magic mine power strong
Wart be gone
In ancient times plants were used that could not be used in this day and age, such as the poisonous belladonna plant which many sorcerers used to help them connect readily to the astral plane. Witches often used belladonna in their flying ointments and, they also used belladonna to help them have clearer psychic vision. It was often placed above the front door in peoples home and used for protection. As witches work with powerful energies they always have belladonna hanging over their front door for its exceptionally powerful protection properties.
Many of the old sorcerers, magicians and witches used henbane, it produced vivid imagery and helped with psychic visions, many deeply involved in divination practices used henbane.

Mandrake was added to ointments in ancient times and used to give witches the ability to fly, it was also used to create an invisibility spell. When using the mandrake there is a mental connection with the witch casting the spell, and only the witch casting the spell can uproot the mandrake plant for magical use. The mandrake has historically been used for dark magic.

Garlic was used as a protection during childbirth, and if placed under a woman giving birth, it is said to keep both the baby and mother, safe from harm.
