Shed Snake Skin-Working with Snake energy

One of the most unique products available at Mystic Echoes is our collection of Shed Snake skin.  These shed skin come from our two loved Baal Pythons.  They shed their skins several times a year as part of the natural cycle of life.  So no worries.  These snakes are well loved and cared for.

Animal bodyparts have been used in magic historically.  Shed snake skin is no different.   The snake skin contains the essence of the snake spirit.  It is a vessel for the spirit of the snake and the snakes spiritual energy. These skins allow us to contact and communicate directly with the spirit energy of snakes.  These skins also provide an excellent physical charm to carry with you.  These physical charms allow you to access the energy of the snake spirit at any time.  Some traditions call those items fetishes.

The magic of the snake can be found across cultures.  In some cultures snakes are symbols of evil and darkness for example in Christianity snakes and serpents are associated with the Devil and Hell..  In other cultures serpents are symbols of primal energy and are considered to be highly passionate creatures.  Some cultures associate Snakes with transformation as well as growth and development.  Every culture is different.

You may find over time that you develop your own associations with snakes and serpent energy. As with any magical practices and associations it is up to you to develop your own connections to the magic within the spirit.  The more you work with the spirit the stronger your relationship will become and the more you will learn from them.

So how do you begin to work with the magic of snakes?  First you have to think about the many associations with snake spirits and their energy.   Secondly you have to think about your personal feelings on the snake spirit.  What do snakes mean to you?  What does your spirit say about working with that energy?  Finally you have to think about your magical and spiritual objective.  What do you want to get from the spell or ritual?  How deep do you want this relationship to go?    Once you have answered those questions you can begin to formulate your spell and ritual.

In order to help you start working with snake energy and the snake spirit we are going to fo through the process of developing a ritual and spell to start your relationship with serpent energy.  We will be working with the first associations that my intuition developed when I first held onto snake skin.

So let’s start at the first step.  The first step in the process is understanding several of the magical and spiritual properties associated with the curio.  As shown above there are different properties and works from different cultures.  This list is a collection of properties associated with just the snake skin.

Magical properties of Snake Skin

  • Healing
  • Renewal
  • Protection
  • Rebirth
  • Sex and sexuality
  • Hexing and or cursing
  • Power
  • Change and Transformation
  • Removal

The next step in working with snake skin is deciding what snakes mean to you. What do you think of when you hold the snake skin?  For myself the first thing that comes into my mind is shedding of old so renewal,rebirth,and removal.  The next thing that comes into my mind is Change or transformation as well as healing.

The last step is  what your personal goal is and how deep you want the relationship to go.  Since you are going to be calling on the spirit of the snake it is important to be respectful and acknowledge the power and presence of the spirit.  The magical goal is important, but its important to have the spiritual aspect understood first.

Here I am going to deal with healing depression.  I want to feel connected to myself.  I want to remove ill feelings and I want to feel refreshed and renewed.  So the goals here are healing, renewal, and removal.  Those are the magical goal.  Since the healing is related to a mental health issue this is something that is going to be continual.  So this is a relationship that you may want to develop for an extended period of time.

Let’s start with a ritual to get to know the snake spirit.  From there we can then focus on the magical work.  Its a two part process.  First is the calling on and greeting the spirit.  Second comes the magical work.  For this you will want to have a few pieces of snake skin three for the spell and one for the ritual, or you can use one large one that you break into four smaller components.

Calling the Snake spirit
Materials:
Snake Skin
White Candle
Offering of Water

Ritual:
Set up your altar with a large white candle for your spirit and a glass of water for the snake spirit as an offering

State a prayer to your spirit Guides and ancestors asking to open and connect the way to the animal realms

Place the Snake Skin on the Altar

As you place the Snake Skin on the altar pray to the spirit:
“Serpent spirits hear my prayer
I call to you,
I ask that you hear my plea
Send your blessings to me
A friend to you I will be
In my heart you will stay
open the doors in my way”

Sit there and be in the moment.  Hold the snake skin and see what comes into your mind.  When you feel that your communication has ended snuff out the candle and leave the altar.  Keep the snake skin there.  Over the next month twice a week light the candle and repeat the prayer and meditation.  This will keep the communication open to you and the spirits.

After the month of prayers and developing a relationship with the snake spirit you can start doing your first magical working with the snake.  This is where we will call on the snake energy directly in the spell and ritual.

Healing with Snake Skin
Materials:
3 Pieces of Snake Skin
3 pieces of Paper
Matches
Black Thread
Blue Candle
Healing Oil

Working:
On the candle inscribe it with the words “healing, renewal,removal”

Take the healing oil and dress the candle from the top to the bottom (you are healing and removing things so top to bottom works)

Light the candle and state:
“Candle burning bright
Bring healing with this light”

Pick up the snake skin and call to the spirit of the snake.  A prayer like this would work well:
“I call upon the ancient powers of the snake
May you help weave the web of fate”

On the first piece of paper Write out everything you wish to have removed from your life

As you write out the things you want to have removed see them gone, feel them behaviors and emotional issues removed from your life and you set clear

Once you have poured all that emotion into the paper place one of the snake skins on the paper

Fold the paper in half away from you.  Turn the paper away from you and fold the paper again.  Do this twice more and then tie it with the black thread.

When you have tied the knot state:
“I banish that which causes me ill
In their stead blessings fill”

Next write out on the last piece of paper how you want to be healed.   Talk about what you will do when you are healed and feeling a sense of being a new person.   Include things you want to do but haven’t been able to do for a while.  Be as clear as you can.  See yourself outside doing those activities.

Fold the paper in half away from you.  Turn the paper away from you and fold the paper again.  Do this twice more and then tie it with the black thread.

Tie the folded paper with the black thread.  as you tie the knot state:
“Renewal and refreshed I am on this day
Cleansed and blessed will I stay”

On the last paper write that which you want to heal.  Include as many details as you can.  be as emotional as you can.  As you write out these healing requests see yourself healed.  See yourself feeling the way that you want to feel.  Know that you will be healthy.

Once all of that emotion has been placed into the paper place the next piece of snake skin.

Fold the paper in half away from you.  Turn the paper away from you and fold the paper again.  Do this twice more and then tie it with the black thread.

When you have tied the knot state:
” Healing Come to Me
Better health I do see”

Next take the candle and the three packets and go outside.  Place each of the packets in the candle flame.  As they burn state:
“candle burning bright
Giving me your sacred light
Burn all obstacles in my way
Health and wellness stay”

Once the packets have burned and there are ashes sprinkle those ashes at the crossroads, into the wind, and into a stream.  This will send your desire to be healed into all directions.  If there is no stream you can bury the ashes on your property or blow them all into the wind.

Devil’s Shoestring: Powerful Herb


Devil’s Shoestring:

Powerful Herb, Witches Friend

Devils Shoe String is a remarkable herb.This herbs is not as well known as many others in witchcraft.  With all magical practices there are local and regional variances in practices, these differences include herbs worked with.  This herbs is common in folk magic practice.

Devilsshoestring

Devils Shoesting is one of the first herbs that we started working with from the world of Conjure.    At the time our interest was in hex breaking and curse breaking roots out there.  There are many herbs and roots used for hex breaking and protection work.  What caught our interest was how not just how the herb was used in work, but that it protected and hexed at the same time.  To us this became something to look at in working with the herbs.

There are many different herbs known as Devil’s Shoe string  This is common with folk names.  In order to know what plant you are getting you should always ask for the botanical name.  Most plants have several different folk names along with regional names.  Every plant has one botanical name.

These following plants (common names and botanical names) are known as Devil’s Shoe String:

Hobble Bush (Vibrunum alnifolium)
Cramp Bark (Viburnum Opulus),
Viburnum (Viburnum prunifolium),
Witches Hobble (Viburnum trilobum).
Devil’s Thongs (Cracca Virginia),
Cat’s Gut (Cracca virginiana),
Goat’s Rue (Tephrosium Virginiana)

All of the above plants can be used as Devils Shoe String in workings.  Most commonly it is Hobble Bush or Vibrunum alnifolium that is used in work.  These plants are excellent allies to have and work with.  Their messages to us are often subtle, but when these allies have something to tell us they will find a way.

When it comes to magic and witchcraft.  It is important to remember that we do not use plants in the work we do.  We work with them.  They give something to us, we give something back to them.  They are our partners and our allies.  We give them attention, they give us protection etc.  If we grow them we give them life and a home.  They protect us in return.  When we work with plants we are working with their spirits creating spiritual bonds and friendships.

Now that you know what the plant is, you may be wondering what the magical properties are.  There are several.    Many of the properties of the plant are hidden within the names of the plant.  The first hint is in the name Hobble Bush.

The plant is called Hobble Bush.  Why?  The larger branches are very easy to trip over or be “hobbled” by.   The plant Hobbles so it trips up your enemies.  It protects you from them.  The smaller more supple vine like branches bind and twist preventing things from getting close to you as well as from

The other secret to the use in hexes or hex breaking with this plant comes in the folk name itself.  Devil’s Shoestring.  There are two keys in the name of the plant.  The biggest one here is the word Devil.  Any plant or root with the name Devil can be used to protect from hexes, hex people, and break hexes.  The Devil was historically associated with hexes and curses as well as binding and tricking people.  So it is an apt name.

So far we have covered the most common associations of Devil’s Shoe string: Hexes, Hexbreaking, Binding, and protection.   There are many other associations as well.  Luck and money are other properties to this herb.  Depending on how you are using the plant, you are protected from badluck and provided with good luck and customers.    It can be used to drive troublesome customers away or to invite beneficial customers.  There are even uses in gambling to enhance your luck.

So in total the associations we have here are: Hexing, Hex breaking, Binding, Protection, Luck, Money, and Success.

In order to get you started working with this herb here is a simple working you can do to protect yourself and bring luck your way.

 

Lucky String Packet

Materials:
1 Pieces of Devil’s Shoe String chopped into seven small pieces
Yellow Paper
Green Ribbon
Black Pen

Working:
On the paper write out your petition for luck and what areas you need to increase your luck.
Place the Devils Shoe string in the paper and folk it towards you as you fold it chant

Chant:
“Devil block things sent my way
Tangled in their knots they shall stay
Blocks busted on this day
Lucky blessings flow my way”

Turn the paper towards you and fold it in half towards you again as best you can.  Repeat the chant.  Turn the paper towards you once more and again fold the paper in half.  Repeat the chant

Take the green ribbon and begin to tie the packet together.  As you begin to wrap the paper with your ribbon visualize good luck coming your way.  See yourself being successful and having your needs met.   Continue to recite the chant while you wrap the ribbon around the packet.  When the packet seems to be full your energy tie a knot and seal the package.  Carry it with you until you feel your luck has returned.

When you have well established good luck (I’d say about a month of good things happening after a run of bad luck) burn the packet and spread the ashes at the crossroads near your home.  This will continue to bring good luck your way from all four corners of the world.

Come to me Love Spell

With tomorrow being Valentines Day a lot of people are looking for love spells and quick romances.  While these spells can be effective, they can also end up in dangerous and destructive relationships.  To prevent that it is best to work a spell that is about attracting love in general.

If you really desire a relationship than it is important to work towards attracting a specific type of person rather than an individual.  So for example rather than addressing Jill from reception or Phil from across the street your spell would adress the type of person you are attracted to. You would include things like hobbies and interests (example enjoys role playing game or being out doors) as well as quality and personality traits (an example being likes being around children, strong heart, passionate about their interests etc). This allows you to be open to the universe rather than drilled into a specific person who may not be a good fit for you.

This spell here is geared towards attracting the right person to you. The items used in the spell not only attract love but also open and enhance sexual desires and friendship.

Bring the packet over to the incense and pass it through the smoke.
When the candle and incense are done burning bury them on your property at the base of a tree.  You can also bury them at a cross roads sending the energy out into the universe.
Carry the packet with you until love manifests in your life.
Once your love has manifested burn the packet outside and sprinkle the ashes into the wind and around the tree or at the cross roads where the candle and incense remains were buried.  This will finish sealing in the magic.

Product Review: Natures Essences Inspiration Blend

I am a fan of the products produced by Charissa’s Cauldron.  The crystal essences I have worked with have been highly effective in helping me deal with health issues.  The few flower essences have been just as wonderful.  For me there really is something magical in these brews.

Today I am going to talk about the Inspiration blend by Charissa’s Cauldron.

Inspiration Blend

This blend is a great blend to work with.  I started to work with it when I was in a funk.  I couldn’t think of any new products or even different sets I could develop for the shop.  I was having difficulty thinking of blog posts.  Nothing was happening creatively for me.

Then I remembered that I had a bottle of this blend.  Once I applied some to my wrists and a few drops to my water I knew that it was what I needed.  I was able to come up with a long list of blog topics, product concepts, and much more.  This stuff if highly effective.  I still have only listed half of the kits and sets I came up with while using this blend and I’ve only touched on one or two of the blog topics I came up with.

If you are in college and working on a paper but can’t seem to get any where this product will help you out.  Its an amazing product.  Its great for creative people.  Its great for those who simply need a little help to get going when it comes to art and creativity.  I’m nearly out of my bottle and will need to get some more.
This product is  going to be involved in future products that I make.  I even have a few ideas on how I could use it.  No hints for you yet, suffice to say that there will be new products over the coming year and one or more of them may have this essence in them.

On a 5 start rating system 5/5.  very powerful and very potent.  A little goes a long ways.

Book Review: What Witches Do

What Witches Do

What Witches Do is an awesome introduction to the world of British Traditional Wicca.  The author wrote this book during his time as a first degree initiate till he earned his second and third degrees and became a High Priest of the tradition.  In many ways this book reflects part of the authors training as he explored the religion of Wicca from the inside out.

For those more familiar with Wicca as styled by Scott Cunningham, Edain McCoy or even Raymond Buckland this book takes some serious adjustments.  Most people forget that Wicca when it was founded by Gerald Gardner and then the Alexandrian Tradition founded by Alex and Maxine Sanders was a coven based religion and continues to be so today.

This book is a perfect text for those who are interested in Traditional Wicca but are not quite ready to contact a coven.  This text was my introduction to Traditional Wicca several years ago and remains to be one of my go to books when I need a refresher on Traditional Wicca.  There are several practices that are discussed in many books on Wicca that I feel this book covers the areas that are “missing”.

If you are interested in Traditional Wicca this book is perfect for you.  If you are looking to learn more about the early forms of Wicca prior to the solitary traditions this book will cover that.  If you are interested in what religious witchcraft looks like this book is for you.  If you are looking for instant initiation, solitary rituals and spells this is not your book.

There are some spells and rituals in the book.  In this book they provide context to how Wiccan coven rituals may run and what sabbat rituals could entail.  None of the rituals or spells within this book can really be performed solitary.  It comes from a coven based tradition so it will have a different feel than other books.

This book has so much more information than I remembered.  Every time I reread the book I learn something new.  It’s packed with information.  5/5

Book Review: Hoodoo Bible Magic

bible magic front cover - working 032314 v5

This book is an interesting book. It covers a lot of different aspects of working with the bible within the folk magic tradition of Hoodoo. As a witch I am interested in learning more about Hoodoo and working with the bible in their spells and rituals. That is one of the reasons why I bought this book. The other reason was so I could start to add Bible magic to my spell work and my personal practices.

This book is a very short read but packed full of information. It is very concise but covers many topics from how the bible entered the practice of Hoodoo to if working magic is even compatible with reading the bible and understanding its work. There are also several different examples of practical magic and ways to work with the bible in day to day life.

The book starts with covering how the bible enters Hoodoo. The authors made it clear that the use of the Bible in Hoodoo is directly tied into some of the hardest times for the Slaves and the African American’s in the south. It is also made clear that now today these practices are inseparable from Hoodoo in any real sense of the work.

Next they cover if magic is compatible with the Bible. Here we are given examples of scripture and texts from within the Bible that illustrate magical practices and that you can work magic from the Bible. In this section the authors cover a selection of different “Heroes” within the Bible that worked magic in some way shape or form.

Finally in the section of begining to understand the Bible and Hoodoo the authors cover Root Doctors and Rootworkers as spiritual leaders and leaders of the church. Several examples are given for how these workers were community leaders not only in magical work but spiritual needs as well.

The section section of this book is probably the largest and most important section. This is the section that teaches working with the Bible in magical works. This section is titled “Forget Not it’s benefits”. This gives the idea of just how important the Bible is as a text to Hoodoo workings.

The first section is about how the Bible itself is a magical text. Here we are showm just how much power is within the Bible. We are taught about making prayer papers and how each verse of the Bible has its own power. The most important lesson here I found was that of the respect for the Bible.

Some spells and workings in Hoodoo call for tearing out passages from the Bible. Here the authors make it clear that by writing the passages down on paper and tearing that paper you have the connection to the verse without needing to deface a Bible. The power for them is in the verse itself so simply writing the verse has power.

Other topics include a folk story about how in battle a Bible stopped a bullet from reaching a Solider, the Jewish Mizpah and the Jewish Protective Mezuzah, and several other small biblical charms.

The next part of this section was on scriptural uses of magic. Here the author goes into discussions about how there are other verses and books of the Bible that can be worked with for magic as well as the Psalms. The author included a lists of various Bible verses and how they could potentially be used in magic. The author also included a list of verses that explain that God does in fact listen to people. This part of the Scripture ends with a description of “pleading the blood pf Jesus” with scriptures giving examples to the practice and how it is used.

The largest section of the “Forget not it’s benefits” is a section on working with the Psalms. Here the authors do include a list of uses for every Psalm in the Book of Psalms. The author includes a passage on the “secrets of the Psalms” as well as how to find the sacred names within the Psalms. The most useful section of this chapter is the two lists of uses for the Psalms. One is a quick list by type of working listing the Psalms in order by number and the other is listing each Psalm individually with the uses next to them.

The 23rd Psalm is one of the most well known Psalms out there. After providing us with a list of Pslams and their uses the authors provide us with several different uses for the 23rd Psalm. There are examples of blessings, protection spells, and a succsess spell as well. The 23rd Psalm is one of the most versitile Psalms in the book of Psalms which is why these suggestions are great for getting to know and work with that Psalm.

This section ends with a list of Pslams for fighting your enemies and sending back or reversing evil sent to you. Both of those sets used together could create powerful spells for protection. These lists give you some ideas on working with the Psalms so you can then start to create your own spells and rituals with the Psalms.

The next section was on using the Bible for Divination. In essence this practice involves flipping through the Bible with your eyes closed. When you stop flipping through pages you read the verse that you fingers land on and contemplate it’s meaning. The other topic covered is the use of dream interpretation and dreams in the Bible as a source of oracles and divination practices.

The final section covering the uses of the Bible in magical practice is a section on Devotional Prayer. The authors cover how we should Pray and what prayer is. The author covers types of prayer and how you can use prayer to preach. This section ends with a sermon that was essentially a prayed Curse regarding Hitler.

Bible Spells Old and New comes after reminding us of the uses of the Bible. Here the authors provided several different types of spells and workings that use the Bible. The authors start with steady work and succsess, which is followed by returning people and lost goods, Love is next (covering love, family, and reconciling with loved ones). After love we get into Helping and blessing, Harming and Cursing, and we end with protection and Jinx breaking. These spells cover basically every need that comes up in most day to day lives.

The Book ends with a selection of Frequently asked questions regarding Hoodoo, the Bible and the many practices associated. These questions include how to choose prayers for specific works, asking about psalms or scripture verses for quick financial windfalls, and even making a payment to Jesus. These are questions that are found on my Hoodoo and Conjure forums so having a list and answers is a great way to get answers for questions you have that may have already been asked.

This book gets 5/5 stars as it covers so many different ways to work with the Bible. The authors provide several resources, contextual examples, and workings that we can use right away to get started. They cover most magical and spiritual needs within the book so it is an excellent resource for beginners.

Psychic review: A reflection on a reading from Luna Sea

Today I am going to talk about a psychic reading I had done back in August.  I did a trade of several products and goodies with Luna Sea Dragon for her complete or full reading set.  This reading included runes, dice, 3 pendulum questions, and a 12 card spread.  It was a very in depth and intense reading.

This was a reading done via distance/internet.  So I can not say about an in person reading.  I can only talk about my experiences with her distance readings.  I’m glad I opted for the full or complete reading as the reading covered so many options and so many different styles of having a reading done.

Most of the readings I have done these days relates to my succsess as a business owner.  Sometimes I am not sure where I would like to go in product development.  I have so many ideas and only s0 much time I can devote to development of products and studying the herbal crafts.  This reading was also focused on my business succsess.

The dice reading was first.  Out of the three dice I had one blank one, once dice come up with the symbols of joy and comfort and the other came up with jealousy.    For me I can say exactly where the joy and comfort is and where the jealousy comes from.  I’ve started to know myself fairly well.

When it comes to the jealousy I can say that from time to time I am envious of my friends who have been raised in their path or practices and taught herbal remedies and herbal magic from childhood by their elders.  Talking to them about some of the practices I do and the things I have learned over the year I almost feel inadequate with my knowledge which all comes from self study and books.  Yes books.   I learned to make Magical Tinctures via my distance studies in the Temple Tradition and most of my magical experiences have been through self guided teachings.  I just feel I missed out on something not being raised with magical spirituality.

The Joy and comfort is sort of easy to understand.  Thanks to my day job (I work at a local CVS) I have money that I can use to pay for things as I want and need them.  I am able to help buy items for my business.  I have a nice home and I have everything I need.  I get to practice my magical arts in safety and without worry.  When I am not working I am free and supported by my fiance’ to develop my passions (magical and spiritual arts).  So my business is fulfilling for me.

If I am feeling depressed working with my herbs can help with that.  My work with herbs and spiritual herbal ism is an essential part of who I am.  Its one of my coping mechanisms and it is something that I am very passionate about.  So I get joy and comfort out of the simple pleasure or working with plants and their spirits.

The Rune reading was next.  The three runes pulled were Ohuz, Juno, and Icana.  Ohuz was about having urges and desires.  That I should follow my intuition and not worry about negativity.  Juno was reversed which means there was going to be a change in love or friendship.  Icana was about new ideas and stepping carefully.  The Rune reading was really the only part of the reading that didn’t really make any sense.

I get the following my intuition.  Its a lesson that has been hard for me to learn, but it keeps coming up.  I do my best to listen to it.  Most of my herbal products are made through an intuitive process (research blends and make a list of commonly used herbs then I let my intuition and the herb spirits guide me).  So That one is a work in progress.  The part about a change in love and friendship I am not so sure about.  The only thing I can think of is hopefully some day soon I will go from being engaged to actually married.  The last rune that deals with new ideas and stepping carefully I do understand and am going to be taking that advice as I know which new product lines it refers to.

Pendulum readings are simple yes or no questions.  In this section of the reading I asked three questions.  I asked if I was going in the right direction with my business and the answer was No.  I asked if I should add more aromatherapy type products and the answer was No.  Finally I asked about a project I have been working on and if that would be a benefit for my business and the answer was Yes.  So from here I wasn’t exactly sure what to think.

The last part of the reading dealt with her Card deck.  I can’t remember the deck that was used but it wasn’t a traditional Tarot deck.  It was an Oracle deck.  I want to say it was a mermaid deck but I could be wrong.  Any way this is the form of reading that most people are familiar with.  Here she pulled 12 cards one for each month of the year/

So far I can say that the cards for September-January have been fairly accurate.   I’m not going to go into much detail about the card reading as without the exact deck its not really going to make much sense.  I will state that the reader was very much able to build a cohesive year message for me.  One theme that came up she wasn’t able to place was another thought with love and friendship.  Again the only thing I could say about that was maybe we are finally going to get married.  I honestly don’t know.

My conclusion is that Luna Sea is a skilled reader.  While she might not be able to place or explain something that comes up in a reading it will probably make sense to the person getting the reading done.  She connects the dots between the types of readings and will do her best to answer any questions you have about the reading as they come up.  If she wasn’t so far away I’d go to an event and see her in person.

Product Review: Money Powder by The Astral Bridge

money-draw-powder

Today I am going to be reviewing a magical powder that I have been working with for a few months. I have been working with the Money Draw Powder by the company The Astral Bridge. Working with herbal powders in spells is a central component to my personal magical practice so for me using this powder was a great way to work my magical practice.

On their website the shop describes the powder as such:

Do you need more money! Well use this powder to empower all your money draw workings. Sprinkle it on cash, roll an anointed candle, use some on yourself or in a mojo bag.

The wonderfully smelling powder has a cinnamon powder base mixed with powerful money drawing ingredients.

I have found that description to be fairly accurate. The powder does have a cinnamon base which works as cinnamon is a powerful herb with money drawing aspects. The only issue I have as a customer is that there is no other ingredients listed. While I can understand not wanting to disclose recipes to the public, there are issues of allergies and dangers to animals or small children to consider. So I would advise the business owner to disclose the other herbal components to their Money Draw powder.

As to the effectiveness of this powder I can say that it has worked. I have been using it in a money jar spell, I have used it in packet spells, and I have also simply sprinkled it over my products before events. When I have used these components together I have had more successful sales than other times. I will continue to use this powder until I run out of my supply and even after that I may buy some more.

This product is so effective that a very little bit goes a long ways. You only need a pinch around your candles and in your packets to be effective. Once the powder starts to work you will notice results. As a business owner the next thing I am going to try with this powder is dusting my table with it at an event and my work space at home to ensure continued sales.
