Honey - Magic and Medicinal Uses

Honey is quite an amazing little substance, i often find myself using it my work ( seriously i have a 5 pound jar of it below my altar thats how much i use it). Honey is the general term used for the sweet nectar that bees gather and bring back to their colony for sustenance. (properly obtained honey doesn’t harm the bees at all) Collected around The late summer and early fall, honey is a common and staple crop in many parts of the world.

Magikal Uses- Honey has a handful of Magikal proprieties, uses  and distinct energies. the energies vary depending on which strain of honey you are working with. but overall i would describe them as positive, cleansing, gentle, soothing and warming. its great for spells, offerings and brews

  • honey makes an acceptable offering for deities,
  •  it can be kept on your altar i keep some on my altar to remind me that amongst the seemingly overwhelming bitterness of everyday life that sweetness can be found.
  • can be used in things involving Love, lust or sexuality
  • Purification (works great in bath scrubs)
  • health and healing
  • community or communication
  • abundance and prosperity 
  • used as a bonding agent in spells,(i find this nice because if you ever need to undo the spell, honey doesn’t permanently solidifies so whats bonded together can be unbound)  
  • spirituality
  • candle magic (for anointing  or beeswax candles)
  • honey can be used to represent wisdom, because gathering honey from hives can be difficult and painful if done incorrectly so it became a metaphor for obtaining knowledge through pain

Honey has a long medicinal history - it will help with allergies  if you eat a teaspoon of locally sourced honey each day. (buying local honey is great way to support your community and local agriculture) it is a natural immunity booster and has antibacterial properties, which is why it is good for soar throats.  if you Shop around for honey you will see a wide range of hues, some are lighter, others are darker. overall, the darker the honey, the better its antibacterial and antioxidant power

There is a MAJOR difference between natural raw unpasteurized honey, and most store bought honey.  Most commercial honey has no traces of pollen and lacks beneficial vitamins and enzymes among a host of other natural constituents which are removed due to pasteurization and processing. Most golden honey you see at your local grocery is dead and far from the health promoting powerhouse of its raw unpasteurized counterpart. Processed honey is not honey at all, and if you desire any kind of health benefits, you must stick to the real stuff.

Hag stones, also known as Holey Stones or Witch Stones, are stones that have a naturally occurring hole and are usually found near oceans and other bodies of water. They are said to be powerful protection talismans, and when worn or carried they protect the bearer from curses, hexes, negative spirits, and harm. They have also been used to prevent nightmares, being strung on a bedpost or placed underneath pillows. It is also believed that if you peer through the hole of the stone that you can see the Fae Folk and otherworldly entities. If one broke, it is thought to have used its power to protect a life.

Just a little sorry to those who are following me, I’ve been mighty busy with work lately. Working 6 days a week with 6-8 hour shifts on non-stop standing. Makes any one tired and just sleep when they get home.

haha.

I walk the Earth
Who touches the Sea
That loves the Moon
Who mirrors the Sun
That was constructed by the Universe
Who expands for eternity.
That is my religion.

30 Days of Magic Brainstorming

What colors, scents, sounds, and/or objects make you feel safe, protected, secure, and comfortable, and why? How would you use these things in protective magic?

Colors: Orange and Yellow; Scents: Dragonsblood, warm spices and peppermint; Sounds: Chimes, bells and hums; Objects: Blankets, stuffed animals and books.

Every one of these things has their own reason for giving me a ‘safe’ feeling for me but I will say that I do love to use warm spices and dragonsblood in my protection spells that I make. Tho I can see using warm spice oils when I wash my blankets so that when they dry all I smell is something comforting.  <3
