In today's video I wanted to show you how I painted and designed our magickal MANDRAKE ROOT, also known as Mandragora for the Samhain Apothecary Label Pack!
This root has a human-like figure and is said to have a scream resembling a banshee, and can kill anyone with it if they aren't wearing proper ear protection! Although this herb/plant/root is an actual real life thing, some of its magickal properties are a bit more mythological (such as the scream), and attributed to pop-culture fiction - most notably The Harry Potter series.
I just thought this one was too much fun NOT to include, so today I would love for you to join me and watch me paint our magickal Mandrake in watercolors, and then use that painting to design one of my Apothecary labels for Samhain! So grab your favorite cuppa, sit back and relax and enjoy the ethereal music from the Harry Potter movie soundtracks!

I am so unbelievably excited to announce a couple things brewing in our virtual coven over in my Magickal Moon Collective Private Facebook Community!
First off, I want to thank patron Jen Reichle for bringing the idea of a Mabon Seed Exchange to the group! This was so much fun, and another great way we have been able to form a more personal connection with one another as a working magickal group! The intention here was to send some of our own seeds from this year's garden to other participants. Come winter's end next year, we will all plant these seeds and add a little of our magick to eachother's gardens, deepening our bond as soul sisters :-) We have all sent our seeds out, so we're just waiting to receive them all now. Once we do, Jen will also lead us in a virtual seed blessing ritual that she has crafted herself. Thank you SO much Jen, for leading us in this activity! I am looking forward to it! Also- I have filmed a little of my behind the scenes process of how I culled my seeds from my own garden, packaged them, and created all the magickal packages that I sent out to participants. I will post that soon... Here is a little peek of what I sent :
I designed these custom spell cards that go with each herb's seeds that I sent in hand drawn/painted packets. I will add the spell card files to my $1 tier printables gallery. You can print these out to use these spell cards in your own garden magick next year! They are also great to add to your own Book of Shadows! They are 5x7 cards. Those are in a separate post HERE!
We have our first batch of Patron-led Workshops by the multi-talented Shelley Hitch!
In this upcoming workshop, Shelley will teach us how to intensify our daily magickal workings with candles, through the use of colors, scents, and other correspondences. Candle magick is a great tool to incorporate into your daily magickal practice as we grow closer to the thinning of the veil that comes with Samhain!
This next event will be so much fun! Also led by Shelley Hitch - Come celebrate the scents of Autumn with us as Shelley shows us some of Partylite's most current line of Fall candles! This is a candle demonstration, and you will have the chance to stock up on some candles for the season!
You can attend these events and many more for FREE just by being a member of our Private Facebook Community and Coven!
