Ready to grab your broomsticks? We are officially in October, which means the witchy season is upon us. For those looking to enhance their daily routines and add a bit of the seasonal spirit, here are a few ideas to get you started.
Channel your inner Hermione Granger this fall and make some potions. Now, when we say potions, we mean your own blends of essential oils. Essential oils have immense benefits, from helping to reduce stress and anxiety to alleviating headaches and migraines. An easy way to start your brewing process is to begin with a base, like jojoba or extra virgin olive oil, and then add a few drops of your desired essential oil. There are plenty of options, including eucalyptus, lemon, and peppermint. Now, you have your own essential oil potion. We're sure that Professor Snape would approve! Another witch-inspired ritual to add to your routine is to light incense. Witches are often associated with fires as they brew a variety of specialties in their cauldrons, so it makes lighting incense a perfect witchy addition. All you have to do is light palo santo or sage and follow the rituals to cleanse a room of bad energy and welcome a new, bright vibe into your space.
Get your wands ready! And by wands, we mean pens, but it's still the same thing, right? We recommend casting a spell on your future selves by journaling. Taking your thoughts, feelings, and intentions to the paper is a great way to organize your wants. It also helps to visualize what your future self could look like and manifest your future. While it may not actually be waving your wand and reciting a spell, journaling has numerous benefits. It's a great way to start the day. Not sure where to start? Write down three things you're grateful for. It's a simple and effective way to begin your journaling journey. Next up, you'll need to take your broomsticks and head outdoors. Getting into nature has proven health benefits. If you can access a nearby forest, beach, park, or any place away from the hustle and bustle, this is an ideal way to channel your inner witch.
Whether you go for a forest bath or take out your journal, we hope these ideas help you channel your inner witch this autumn.
