Agates are stones of protection, harmony and strength. It is helpful in summoning creative energy and easing anxiety, and is a wonderful stone to use in children’s jewelry and charms, with how strong a protector agate tends to be. It is also a fantastic stone for neutralizing or dispelling negative energies. Depending on the variety of agate, it is well used in chakra balancing; just match the color of the stone to that of the chakra.

Copper tends to stimulate and encourage optimism, independence, harmony, luck, sexuality, intuition and general vitality. Copper is a wonderful conductor of healing energy and its properties are useful in many areas of healing.

Green Man Prayer Beads w/ Howlite, Copper, Czech Glass & Raku Beads

~*~ Green Man Prayer Beads ~*~

This piece features howlite, copper and faceted blush pink Czech glass beads. The ceramic beads are raku-fired, which has an unpredictable outcome that results in these brilliant color flashes in some beads. The coppery pink tone on the green man’s face set the tone for this entire piece, and I hope that you love this springy blend of colors just as much as I do.

Copper tends to stimulate and encourage optimism, independence, harmony, luck, sexuality, intuition and general vitality.

Howlite is a stress reliever, used for easing insomnia and quieting the mind. It can aid in astral journeying and gaining insight. Howlite is also useful for correcting negative behavior and absorbing anger. Additionally, this stone can foster patience and greater awareness.

Hearth Witch Tip: Bay Leaves

BayLeaf2

I’ve just discovered how amazing bay leaves are in the past year or so, as a medicinal herb, a spice and as a magical tool. I like to add them to soups that I make in my slow cooker and offer the leaves to my spirits in a small bowl of the soup. I also love the idea of writing your wishes on dried bay leaves and then burning them in a fire to send them to your spirits and/or the universe. ♥ What’s your favorite herb?
