Lucas is always amazing me with his initiatives, specially when concerning his pagan path. Yesterday, out of nothing, he decided to create his first protection potion all by himself. He took a handful of dandelions from our garden, detached the leaves from the roots (discarding the rest) and let them dry for one hour under the sun. Then he chopped everything to tiny bits using scissors - under my supervision, of course - and put them in my mortar with a good pinch of rosemary, smashing them well (mental note: getting him his own mortar & pestle, lol).
After that, he filled 1/4 of a plastic bottle with filtered water (he said rain water can be used as well), and added the herbs, vigorously shaking the bottle until getting lots of foam, the sign that it was ready to rest for one night during Full Moon (he was very enphatic on this).
This morning he filtered the potion, discarding the dandelion leaves and roots and the rosemary, and put the liquid into a plastic vessel with lid for storage (as you can see in the first photo). You can't believe how good it smells! It's to be used to splash outside around the house to protect it from negative vibes. It can also be used in protection rituals indoors, pouring some drops in the cauldron.
He wrote this "recipe" in his diary (yes, he also decided to keep a diary now!), which means that maybe it will be his first BOS, even without noticing. Let's see what he makes next!
If you have kids, do encourage them to create their own witcheries, even if the ingredients don't seem to fit, you'll be surprised how well the little ones' intuition works ! ;)
