Remember that we harvested some dandelions and put them to dry a couple of weeks ago? They dried very well in to my wardrobe and last night we prepared them for Moon Shine's tincture.
Well, the leaves were dry but I put them for 5 minutes into the hot oven just to make them get crumbly and easier to deal with - I don't think it was a bad thing, ;P
My little witch loved taking the bigger leaves to put into the glass jar:
I filled half the jar with Brazilian cachaça (a sugar-cane beverage), since we didn't have whisky or vodka at home as suggested by Moon Shine, but according to him, it's a good substitute:
Then I completed filling it with water, put the lid and placed it under my wardrobe - the darkest place in my room, lol! It will stay there for one month until is completely ready for use. The rest of the leaves were enthusiastically reduced to powder by Lucas and stored in a tin can for future witchy use, along with the dried roots.
Of course my little witch wanted to make a divination potion, using hot water in his cauldron and a generous pinch of the dried leaves, and he kept watching the images formed in the brew. His little mind went wild and he said he could see, in this sequence: a green man, an old man holding a sickle, a seahorse and a man holding a snake in each hand, lol! Don't ask me about it, I decided agreeing and calling it anight then! ;)
