“A Charm of Isis” by DeTraci Regula

Isis is perhaps the most multi-faceted of all the Goddesses known to us.
Earth mother and star spirit, sacred healer and Amazon warrior goddess, passionate lover and pure holy preistess of the divine, she can be approached to answer any human need.  As the divine spell-maker and compounder of mystical medicines, she is also known as the “one who hears,” even to those who merely call on her out of curiosity or indefinable need.
Her responsiveness is legendary, but don’t ever invite her with disrespect or in a desire to dominate a deity.  It won’t work out the way you expect.

HOW TO MAKE AN ISIS CHARM

Go to a sacred space, at your home altar or out in nature, Draw one of Isis’ symbols on a piece of paper or in a spot of clear ground.  Take a strip of white cloth long enough to tie around your wrist, ankle, or waist.  Smooth out the strip and anoint the cloth with a sweet-smelling oil, such as amber, kyphi, or a blend named for Isis.  It should be a scent that you enjoy.

As you anoint the cloth, say these or similar words:

Great Isis, Lady of the Universe,
Let your divine nature flow into this band of cloth.
I ask for your protection in difficult times
I ask for your help and assistance with difficult people
Let me have knowledge of my own power
And enlightenment to guide me
In your name, Isis, divine protectoress,
Who guards all those who call upon Your name.

As you write on the cloth, say:

As I inscribe this cloth
so let me be also inscribed
with the enduring mark of your protection.
Holy Isis, Lady of the Words of Power
Hear my words and may they be pleasing to you.
Grant to me your divine protection
as I bind to me with the divine knot of Isis
Your Holy name.

Tie the cloth around you.  It should be left loose enough that it can be slid off again without untying it.

~I glory in the light, I share in the sacred and eternal life.  Thank you, Great Isis, Lady of the Universe.~

Wear the cloth through the difficult situation, or until you feel that the power it represents is present within you.

Faery Herbs Charms

* Bluebells *
Said to attract faeries to dance in your garden. On Beltane eve, make an ankle bracelet of “Bluebells” and “jingle” bells to attract helpful fae folk to you.
* Clover *
A sacred faery plant, clovers of all kinds will attract them. Lay seven grains of wheat on a four-leafed clover to see the Faery.
* Elderberry *
Used to make Faery wine, these berries can be burned on a fire to invite the Good Folk to a gathering. Make a homemade brew of Elderberry Wine and you are sure to have some thirsty visitors. It is said that if a human drinks the wine, she will be able to see the Faery. If a human should drink Elderberry wine from the same goblet as a Faery being, he will be able to see them forever after.
* Elecampagne *
Also known as Elfswort. This root can be scattered around the home to attract the Sidhe. It can be added to any magick or spell to invoke Faery blessing.
* Foxglove *
The source of the modern heart drug Digitalis, Foxglove can have seriously dangerous results if taken internally. DO NOT INGEST!! Instead, plant Foxglove near your front door to invite the Faery in. Put a dried sprig of Foxglove in a talisman to keep you surrounded in Faery light.
* Heather *
Heather is said to ignite faery passions and open portals between their world and our own. Make an offering of Heather on “Beltane” eve to attract good fae to your garden or house.
* Lilac *
The sweet scent is said to draw Fae spirits to your garden. Lilac and primroses for midsummer’s eve, will please the Fae.
* Mistletoe *
The most sacred herb of the Druids. Mistletoe is a magickal activator. In Faery spells, use a dash of Mistletoe taken on Summer Solstice to empower your workings with Faery magick.
* Milkweed *
Both Monarch butterflies and fairies like milkweed. If Milkweed is planted in a Witches garden, the fey will always be in the area. The silky tassels of the Milkweed pods can be added to a dream pillow to not only make it softer but also to make you dream of fairies. In the Autumn when the pods are bursting and the fluffy seeds are flying across the fields, a wish is granted for each seed that can be caught and then released again.
* Peony *
Peony seeds were once used to protect children from faeries. A garland of the seeds were placed around the child’s neck to keep them safe from kidnapping. In this day and age, with faery contact so drastically diminished, I doubt that anyone would want to don this faery banishing herb unless they were living smack dab in the middle of a circle of crazed Fae!!
* Poppies *
Said to invoke the faery into your dreams Make a dream pillow of fresh poppies to entice the fae to your dreams.
* Primrose *
When planted in a garden or hung dried on the front door, primroses will attract the company of Faeries. If you have them growing under your care, do not let them die! The Faery will be deeply offended by your carelessness. Primroses are great in container gardens. Tie a pink ribbon around your container of Primroses while chanting; “Sacred roses, hear my cry
for your protection, this I tie”
* Roses *
Roses attract the Faery to a garden. Their sweet scent will lure elemental spirits to take up residence close by. Roses can be used in Faery love spells. When performing the spell, sprinkle rose petals under your feet and dance softly upon them while asking the Faery for their blessing on your magick. Roses are loved by the fey so you can plant Roses in your garden to attract fairies. Wild Roses are best for this purpose and you need to say the following spell as you plant your baby Rose bush:
“I ask a fairy from the wild,
To come and tend this wee rose-child.
A babe of air she thrives today,
Root her soul in the Goddesses’ good clay.
Fairies make this twig your bower,
By your magic shall time see her flower!”
* Thyme *
Wearing thyme will increase your ability to see the Sidhe. Sprinkle it at the base of your door, and on window sills to invite the Faery to enter your home

Worry

.
Sandalwood is indicated for obsessive worry, and for worldly “over attachment”.
Whenever we over invest in seeing specific outcomes for our efforts, Sandalwood helps us
to re-establish an acceptance of reality as it is.

Using Essential Oils with Babies and Children

A good reminder of the power of essential oils and how they work.
To introduce aromatherapy to babies place 2 drops of essential oil C(try Lavender) on a tissue and keep it nearby when you are feeding him or her. He will come to associate the aroma with love and comfort. Use this scent at night to help him sleep. When you leave the child with a sitter the aroma will comfort and reassure him.

Use 1 drop Chamomile oil on a washcloth wrapped ice cube to relieve teething pain in children

Children love it when their bath water smells good. Lavender and Roman Chamomile are good choices for small children. It is best to add the essential oils to some milk or liquid soap before adding to the tub. Use 1-3 total drops per bath. Be sure to keep all bottles of essential oils away from children.

When planning a children’s party choose the Citrus oils like Orange and Mandarin to use in the diffuser or Aroma Lamp. They are happy yet calming scents that all children love.

Citrus oils can be used as natural cleaning agents around the house. Simply add a few drops of Orange, Lemon, Bergamot or Mandarin oil to water, moisten a clean cloth with the mixture and wipe down children’s rooms and school bags.

Scent children’s drawers containing nighttime clothing with Lavender and Chamomile essential oils applied to cotton balls. Works for Moms too! Sweet Dreams!

Dosages
Essential oil use:Children respond very well to LOW Dosages of essential oils especially for anger and irritability. Use 1/3 the adult dose.When using essential oils with children, please remember their skin is very delicate. When adding e/o’s to a bath be sure to blend the correct # of drops with about 16 oz of water, shake well, then add this mixture to the bath water. Use only those oils safe for children. A few are Lavender, Geranium and Rose. Use 1/2 the usual amount.Children’s Dosages Use half the usual dosage when diffusing essential oils in a child’s room.

Crying/Irritable Baby Put 1 drop Lavender on your shoulder and rock the baby to sleep while the baby’s head rest on your shoulder. For more detailed information on using essential oils with baies and Children we offer the book Aromatherapy for Mother and Baby By Allison England, R.N.

Roman Chamomile is soothing for tantrums and will also promote a good nights sleep. Put 1 drop on the pillow at bedtime. Used in the bath they can be blended with liquid soap to help them disperse. Use a lower dosage, 50% or 1/2 the recommended amount if pregnant or breastfeeding, with children or the elderly. The number of drops of essential oils used should vary in direct proportion to body weight, taking into account the age of the person as well as mental and physical health. The very old should use the same number of drops as children and babies half the amount of children.

Sweet Orange – The Oil of Happiness Warm and sunny, excellent for depression,stress, tension, frustration and anxiety.Orange helps to lift the spirits and promote joy. A great scent for children.Why not use in a diffuser or aroma lamp today.

Another way to use essential oils is a hand or foot massage. Children love a hand massage and who doesn’t like their feet rubbed. Lavender would be a good choice. Remember everyone likes to be pampered.Use 3-5 drops of essential oils per Tablespoon of base oil. Use 1/2 the adult dose for children.Choose Sweet Almond, Apricot Kernel or any other unscented carrier oil.

If you have children……..you probably have ‘stinky sneakers’!!! Here’s a great blend for sneaker sachets:
two teaspoons essential oil of Sandalwood one teaspoon essential oil of Tea tree one half teaspoon each essential oils of Lemon and Grapefruit one fourth teaspoon each essential oils of Spruce and Lavender(if you have girls, put a bit more lavender oil in) 4 cups natural clay kitty litter
Stir the oils into the kitty litter in a glass jar, cover and let the mixture age for a week. Put those mismatched or threadbare socks to good use….fill four of them with the sachet blend and close them with rubber bands.

Tangerine oil has a scent similar to Mandarin but contains NO anthranilic acid ester and therefore has no sedative effects. anthranilic acid esters are highly sedative. Mandarin is wonderful to use with children suffering from anxiety, nervousness or stress. Make this oil your first choice with children. Great for adults as well.

Eucalyptus Smithi is the only Eucalyptus essential oil that should be used on children. Eucalyptus Globulus which is the most common is usually rectified and is not suitable for children. A top note in aromatherapy, this oil is said to be helpful for chest infections, to facilitate breathing. It is also an effective analgesic. Aslo suitable for the elderly.

At the first sign of a stuffy nose place 1 drop of Eucalyptus on the corner of your pillow. This can sometimes even stop a cold from coming on. For young children use Eucalyptus Smithi a much safer oil.

For colds and coughs.Using essential oils with babies and children. Under the bed place a bowl of boiling water to which you have added 3 drops of Eucalyptus Oil. Use Eucalyptus Smithi which is safer for children. The steam will rise releasing the molecules into the room. According to the book do not use Eucalyptus on babies younger than 2 months. From The Complete Book of Essential Oil and Aromatherapy by Valerie Ann Worwood.

When using essential oils in the bath for children be sure to dilute in a carrier oil like Sweet Almond Oil or whole milk.Use 1/2 the usual adult dosage. (6-8 drops is an adult dose) Lavender and Chamomile are ideal.

If you have children living away from home be sure they have a bottle of Tea Tree oil. My son was recently in New York on business and aquired numerous spider bites. His calf was swollen, hot, and very painful. He picked up a bottle of Tea Tree at a nearby store and he happily reported the next day that it really worked! Dried it up, swelling down, no pain or itching.

A Soothing Tip for Babies and Children Place 4 drops Lavender and 4 drops Chamomile on a tissue and place between the sheets 1/2 hour before bedtime. Remove tissue before child gets in bed. Use this tip yourself and tuck inside your pillowcase. Sweet Dreams!

Essential Oil of Lemon
Keep Lemon on hand to kill germs.Keep a spray bottle handy for quick cleanups in children’s playroom. Add to dishwashing liquid or any mild hand soap.Use in a spray for disinfecting the air. You’ll find plenty of other uses I’m sure.It has high antibacterial properties. It’s antiseptic properties will last for 20 days.
