Miniature of Marie Antoinette “bathing.” Thought to have been secretly commissioned in commemoration of the birth of the Dauphin or the consummation of her marriage to Louis XVI.

Concerning the latter:

“The Austrian ambassador confirmed this “most interesting event,” adding that it took place around 10 o’clock, the morning of 18 August: “The king went to see his wife just as she was finishing her bath; the spouses were together for about an hour and one-quarter; the king demanded a commitment from the queen that what had happened between them remain a secret. The only exception was to be the primary physician, LASSONE, who, informed by the king of all the circumstances, did not hesitate to affirm that the marriage had been consummated.”



For Restful Sleep

fuckyeahpaganism:

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about how to ward off insomnia or induce sleep. Hopefully these can help. :)

Sleep Oil 

  • 1/2 ounce carrier oil (sweet almond oil, apricot kernel, or olive work well)
  • 3 drops lavender 
  • 12 drops bergamot 
  • 3 drops cypress 

To increase the benefits of your sleep, apply a few drops behind your ears, spreading the excess out over your jawline (you don’t need much, just a little dab will work). Do this immediately before bed. Please do a spot test on the back of your hand to make sure you’re not allergic. 

Pouch For A Restful Night 

Add these items to a pouch: 

  • Dried hibiscus 
  • Valerian
  • Chamomile flower 
  • lavender 
  • one small amethyst

Mix all of the above together in a small pouch and charge the pouch. Feel free to add a couple of drops of oil such as lavender, rose geranium, lemon balm or any other oil pertaining to sleep. 

Sleep Jar 

  • Blue or brown glass jar 
  • 1/8 cup dried lavender
  • 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2-3/4 tablespoon ground orris root

After everything is well covered by the orris root, store with a tight fitting lid and keep it near your bedside. When you are having trouble sleeping, take out the jar, uncap it and inhale deeply its sweet aroma. Then set it aside, leaving it open on your bedside table, turn off the lights and sleep. 

You can add a piece of moonstone, amethyst, blue lace agate, or blue tourmaline to the mix to make it more effective. 

More Things You Can Do:

  • Drink Chamomile Tea before bed. 
  • Can drink Valerian root tea or chew on a Valerian root 
  • Try to stay on a regular sleep schedule 
  • Try stress relieving activities such as meditation before bed and during free time

Inspired by lockswitch’s post, let’s band together. Tonight there is a moment of silence for the people of Ferguson at 7 pm. Tonight, after that moment of silence, do what you can: cast a spell of protection for the citizens of Ferguson and the people sending us pictures and news… Curse the racists cops terrorizing the area… Petition your gods and goddesses of justice! If you’re seeing this after the fact, don’t let that stop you! Let’s make this entire weekend one of witch action!

Thurs august 14th - before or after 7pm EDT
Fri august 15th - 10 pm EDT
Sat August 16th - 10 pm EDT

Pass it on! Signal boost the fuck out of this!

for people who aren’t sure what sort of spells to perform, here’s an index to give you ideas (protection, healing, strength, etc). here are two guides for spell writing:

it can be as simple as lighting a candle and sending supportive energy to the citizens. if visualization isn’t your strong point, here are some tips. see also: non-witchy things you can do to help.
