12 Days of Selfcare ~ Day 8

Day 8 -Banish the Bullsh*t

There are some days, despite our best efforts, that we really need to log off, log out, walk away, disengage, or throw salt at people. Sometimes that is also not feasible! We can create a Banish the Bullsh*t spray as a shield and vibration shifter. It is an act of self-care to recognize situations that are too much and are impacting you in a way that you do not consent to.

Supplies:

  • Small spray bottle
  • Rubbing alcohol (vodka works too though)
  • Spring Water
  • Essential Oils: Sage, Rosemary, & Lavender

Directions:

Take the (cleansed, purified, and blessed) spray bottle and fill ¼ of the way with alcohol. Add your spring water until your spray bottle is almost full.

Open each bottle of essential oil and whisper to it what you need from it.

Add:

  • 4 drops of Sage
  • 5 drops of Rosemary
  • 6 drops of Lavender

Whisper to them and tell them to bind together to Banish the Bullsh*t you encounter when you spray them.

Cap it, shake a little, have at it. Boundaries are circles of wellness that we create for ourselves so Banishing the BS is definitely self-care!

Preparing for Day 9

Each day there will be another (smaller) article detailing the current day and the next day, so if you are a planner like I am, you will have time to make the space.

Getting enough rest is crucial as a human. Where I lay my head for rest is a space I consider to be sacred. Creating a Sacred Pillow Pouch is a great way to practice sacred restful selfcare with plant allies. We can use plant allies that reinforce the elements of restfulness, dreams, calm, and the ability to navigate the liminal space between conscious and unconscious.

Supplies:

  • Lavender Buds
  • Bay Leaves
  • Mugwort (dried herb)
  • Small pouch

Directions:

Place each herb into your small pouch and whisper to it what your aims are. Once the herbs are in the pouch, ask them to work together in your favor. Place it in your pillowcase or under your pillow.

Additional Tips:

  • I have written on the Bay leaves if I need to have a specific outcome for a certain time, or if I am doing specific dream work related to time walking and goals.
  • Pulling the pouch out for a few minutes and breathing the herbs in has been a helpful routine to create a calm inner space before bedtime. Connecting to the herbs this way also allows for deeper relationship with them.

Building it Up

This is a free series from Dark Goddesses Collective and is a part of our December 2021 work. We believe that it is important to empower each other, this includes providing free information that provokes or encourages knowledge of self, of sovereignty, and that which builds intuition. Over the course of 12 days we will be building up a practice of selfcare that invites in the deeper knowledge of self and building up awareness of the importance of Full-hearted selfcare in our practices of magic.

We are building a network of Sovereigns too! Stay tuned!
