Magickal Musings From Infinite Flame

July 7, 2009
Define "wicked".....

 

Blessing Moon

The dark moon was actually on June 22, the day after the Summer Solstice and Father’s Day. I sent my Midsummer/Summer Solstice Newsletter that day too. Today is the full moon and here’s the new newsletter, thus giving a two week break between them.

Today’s full moon is called the Blessing Moon, take some time today to count your blessings, I bet you will find you have more than you realize. Thank the Goddess/God/Powers That Be for all those blessings and enjoy the full moon energy.

New Items on Infinite Flame Site

New to the site, I am finally adding my jewelry. It’s not all there yet but its a start! In the description of each piece I have included the properties of the materials used and the inspiration for it, if any.

2014: The jewelry section is always being updated as I make new items and sell some. I have added a Jewelry Archive page to show off not only items that have sold but special orders and jewelry I have made for myself.

Pamper Your Feet with a Homemade Scrub

It’s summer and you know what that means.....skimpy sandals and bare feet. You want your feet to look their best but occasionally we all are plagued with dry flaky skin. Don’t hide them, exfoliate them! There are many expensive products you can buy but why waste your money when you can create your own scrub with ingredients found right in your own kitchen.

In The Complete Book of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy I found a recipe for a facial scrub. It consists of 1 teaspoon ground almonds (finely ground for the face), 1 teaspoon oatmeal, a pinch of salt, 1/2 teaspoon cider vinegar and 1 drop basil essential oil. I have used this face scrub and found it to be gentle yet effective. Then I decided to change it for use on the feet.

First, I changed the basil to peppermint as it is very refreshing and deodorizing. I then coarsely ground some of the almonds to make them rougher. By the way, use raw whole almonds which are available at a health food store. Instead of cider vinegar I used a carrier oil like sweet almond. While this helps soften your feet it also makes the tub slippery when used in a shower so do it last and wipe out the shower afterwards. I still added the oatmeal but dropped the salt (not literally!). You can experiment with measurements to make as much or as little as you want. The consistency should be like a paste but not too firm. The best time to use this is after your shower or after soaking your feet for about 5 minutes to soften the skin. Rub gently but firmly all over the bottoms of your feet and rinse well.

If you are a coffee drinker, here’s a wonderful way to use those grounds. Scrub your feet with them. I have been doing this all summer and it works wonders. There are several ways you can use them. Either substitute them for the ground almonds in the above recipe (not recommend for the face unless you use very little coffee grounds, a pinch at most). Use just the coffee grounds as they are with nothing added, or add a little bit of sweet almond or another carrier oil. Or, my new favorite way to use them, mix some coffee grounds with a sugar and/or salt scrub. I have been using my own sugar salt scrub (lavender clove scent) but you can use any that you have. Use more coffee than scrub, like a 2 to 1 ratio, and enjoy.

Have a blessed and warm summer!
