For the past couple of years, beauty and self care have been ridiculously popular especially products and recipes made from natural ingredients.

Book Review: The Witches’ Almanac Issue 35

I am a sucker for a good almanac.  They are such a trove of information and insight and are one of the most valuable resources for newbies and seasoned Pagans alike.  This year I obtained a copy of The Witches’ Almanac Issue 35, Air: The Breath of Life.

Herbal Tea and Essential Oil Blends for Soothing and Calming Worry and Anxiety

Everyone to some extent suffers from worry and anxiety.  Sometimes it is perfectly natural, like when you are waiting to see if you got into college or if you are going to ask someone to marry you.  But for a lot of people, chronic worrying and anxiety is a chaotic and destabilizing part of everyday life.  I want to stress that anxiety and panic attacks are a real, honest to Goddess medical condition and that you are not alone.  40 million adults age 18 or older in the United States suffer from anxiety, including yours truly.  If you suspect that you suffer from this condition, please see a doctor or medical practitioner and implement a rigorous self care routine.
