Comfrey! by Patsy Patricia
I am ready to start brewing up some wonderful herbal remedies!
One of my favorites of all time is Comfrey! I use it in most of my best soap recipes! It's so soothing to the skin, and to the entire body... and it's a pretty plant too! Easy to grow...!
So... here is something to think about!
Are you a little nervous about doing a bone scan to check for osteoporosis?
(ME TOO! )
It's just crazty! I really don't want to buy into all the crap about going to the doctor for an annual check up... but sometimes you do need to know what is going on ... sometimes...!
So... if you want to check your bone density, take a gander in the mirror - at your face...! The deeper the wrinkles on your face, the more bone mass you may have lost!
Since collagen holds bone and skin together, looking in the mirror tells you the correlation between the two... more wrinkles, less collagen!
So... what to do about it?
Let me tell you!
A comfrey infusion nourishes the production of collagen,
strengthening bones and reducing wrinkles.
Use fresh or dried comfrey leaves to make a comfrey infused honey for use on your face for quick facial or to put on your bread or in your tea!
about 1 oz of fresh comfrey leaves, or 3 oz dried leaves
2 cups of honey
place leaves in a jar that has a tightly closing lid. Add honey on the top of the leaves. Shake once daily for about 2 weeks. Remove leaves from honey.
Use a canning jar to make comfrey infused oils.
I use oils on my skin instead of a lotion ... or I make a homemade lotion out of the infused oils!
Use 1 oz of comfrey leaves with 2 cups of oil.
Put the leaves in the jar, cover with the oil of your choice.
You can use olive oil, sweet almond oil, hemp seed oil.. the list is endless!
Put the lid on tightly and shake once a day for 2 weeks.
put the lid on and place jar in a pot of water on the stove. Turn the burner on low and allow to heat up for an hour. turn off and allow to cool. Repeat the heating and cooling process several times over the next 3 days, allowing the slow gentle heat to help the herb infuse the oil.
Make a "tea" infusion to drink or to bathe your skin in.
Get one of the larger canning jars. In a large pot, boil up about a pint of water.
drop 1 tablespoon of dried comfrey leaves into the water and allow to cool down.
Pour 'tea' into the canning jar and allow to sit for 1 day in the refridgerator, shaking the jar once or twice.
Add comfrey honey and sip your tea
pour the tea over a wash cloth and place over your face for 10 minutes as a quickie facial .

Just thought we woud share!
Many Spiritualists, Pagans and Wiccans use the Pentagram and Pentacle in their lives.
The five points of the star have many meanings. Some attribute the five points to the four directions and Spirit. Another thought is "as Above, so Below" which is attributed to the double triangles you can find in the star.
The differences between the two;
A pentagram is a five pointed star, with the one point aligned upwards and drawn with 5 straight strokes.
A pentacle (also spelled pantacle in Thelema, following Aleister Crowley) is an amulet used in magical evocation, generally made of parchment, paper or metal (although it can be of other materials), on which the symbol of a spirit or energy being evoked is drawn.
A pentacle is generally defined as an upright pentagram surrounded by a circle.
"A circle around a pentagram contains and protects. The circle is symbolic of eternity and infinity, the cycles of life and nature. The circle touching all 5 points indicates that the spirit, earth, air, water and fire are all connected.
The circled pentagram is the passive form implying spiritual containment of the magic circle, in keeping with the traditional secrecy of witchcraft, and the personal, individual nature of the pagan religious path, of its non-proselytising character."
The Pentacle is a sacred symbol that is used for ceremonial magic, to draw material gains toward oneself. It's also used to invite protection to a person or place.
It can be used in conjunction with other sacred symbols such as runes and Sigils.
The pentacle should be upright at all times while on your altar
There are many uses for the pentagram and pentacle, both for ceremonial and daily magic. You can use empower jewelry, candles, even yourself if you choose to have it tattooed on your body!
This is by no means the be all and end all on the five pointed star, but just a little prompt for you to look up and gather your own information!
"The Pentagram As A Christian Symbol:
Up until medieval times, the five points of the pentagram represented the five wounds of Christ on the Cross. It was a symbol of Christ the Savior. This is in stark contrast to today where the pentagram is criticized by modern Fundamentalist Christians, as being a symbol of evil.
The church eventually chose the cross as a more significant symbol for Christianity, and the use of the pentagram as a Christian symbol gradually ceased."
This is the time of year to reflect on what it was that you accomplished for the past year... and what you intend for the new year...
This new year being 2015!
In Numerology, the year of 2015 is reduced down to the number 8... the symbol for infinity, wealth and achievements!
Whooo Hooo! So now would be a great time to reflect on what it is - clearly - that you wish to accomplish!
Start out with a cleansing - cleanse your house, your personal effects, and then your body.
Below is an herbal recipe to help you along!
For a personal cleansing:
• 1 or 2 Lemons sliced up
( 9 or 13 slices would be great choice )
• Hyssop herb, dried or fresh
• Pine needles, dried or fresh
Make an infusion by adding the ingredients to a bowl and pouring 3 or 4 cups of almost boiling water to it, let it seep for about 15 minutes and then add some sea or Kosher salt to it.
Draw a tub of warm water and add the infusion, after you have cleansed your house and personal spaces. Then climb in and soak and meditate for a bit.
This is ideal for clearing out challenging energy, negative thoughts, crossed conditions and to cut ties with the old responses.
Here are some thoughts to bring to your new year achievements:
