Bohemian Magic Studios Presents Crafty Card Exchange | Opening My Cards! (The One With all the Sniffing)
Hello Magickal Beings!
This past December, I hosted a Crafty Card Exchange in my Magickal Moon Collective Facebook Group! There were about 8 of us who participated in this exchange and it was TONS of fun!! The rules were simple, at least one item in the envelope had to be handcrafted, and they had to be sent out by December 15, the latest! I know this video seems way past due, however, I did not actually even receive all of my cards until January 5th! I had SO much fun opening these!
My participants sent me some very fun and creative stuff including some teas, stickers, tree ornaments, zines, finger puppets, cat toys, scrapbooking ephemera, charm bags, and more! In today's video, I will be opening all of the crafty cards the exchange participants sent to me!.....and also a lot of sniffing things, hahaha! If there's one thing I can say, is that everyone's packages smelt SO GOOD - chock full of holiday spice! Also at the end of the video, I will give you a sneak peek of the cards I put together to send out to my participants!
Thank you SO much to all who participated in this fun exchange!

Yuletide Sugar Scrub Ornaments
Hello Magickal Beings! This video was intended for last year’s Yuletide season (2017), however, the holidays became a whirlwind, and I could not get around to editing this video. However, fret not! None of the footage I ever take is discarded or disregarded as scrap. I have instead decided to edit and repurpose it for THIS holiday season, because it's still an awesome idea. So I hope you enjoy these nonetheless, even if they’re a bit late ;-)
Now without further adieu, here is a recipe/bath and body craft project I tried with some cute empty ball ornaments that I found at the dollar store (2 for $1). The recipe is pretty straight forward, it only uses a few basic ingredients that you can find in your home pantry, as well as some doTerra Essential Oils. In this video, I will be showing you how to make 2 different scrubs!
Peppermint Scrub Ingredients:
1 cup of white granulated sugar
1 candy cane (crushed to a fine powder)
3-5 drops of doTERRA Peppermint Essential Oil
Star Anise (crushed)
1 or 2 Whole Fresh Mint Leaves
Red Organza Ribbon
Cinnamon & Clove Orange Spice Scrub Ingredients:
1 Cup of Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon Sugar
3-5 Drops of doTERRA Cassia Oil
3-5 Drops of doTERRA Clove Oil
Zest of 1 orange
Crushed Clove and Hibiscus Flower
Chopped Orange Rinds
Gold Organza and Silk Ribbon
Also be sure to include a small jar of extra virgin coconut oil along with your gift, so your recipient can have their own fun concocting their very own special sugar scrub themselves! I hope you are able to try this recipe for this Yuletide season, especially as gifts for your loved ones! I love making homemade Bath and Body products as gifts when I am on a budget! Have you tried this before!?! Do you do things differently?
I’d love to know your experiences making these cute sugar scrub ornaments, in the comments below!

Llewellyn’s Sabbat Essentials Book Review (YULE)
Hello Magickal Beings!
Happy December and Midwinter Solstice to you all! Join me in my cozy living room, as I have a very lovely book to share with you all, in preparation for YULE which is our midwinter solstice sabbat on the wiccan/pagan wheel of the year! The magickal book that I am covering today is called Llewellyn’s Sabbat Essentials Yule: Rituals, Recipes & Lore for the Winter Solstice.
Here is a small description about the book:
JOYFUL CELEBRATION OF THE SPARK WITHIN
“Yule – also known as the Winter Solstice – is celebrated when nighttime has reached its maximum length, and there is a promise of brighter days to come as candles are lit and feasts are enjoyed. This guide shows you how to perform rituals and work magic with the energy of rebirth and renewal that comes with the return of the light.”
In this video I will review the different sections and subjects that the book has to offer: Rituals, recipes, lore, spells, divination, crafts, correspondences, invocations, prayers, and meditations. I will also show you a beautiful diagram of the wheel and give you some context about its position on the wheel in relation to the other sabbats throughout the year. I will also distinguish for you, the difference of sabbats between the northern and southern hemispheres. We will then chat about some of the mystical lore behind the tradition, including the battle between the mighty Oak King and Holly King. One has to die for the other to rule for the other half of the year. Which will it be?
Also, we will talk about the origins of the Yule Log, Animal Totems and Folk Tales, The Great Tree Debate: Should you get a fake or real tree?, Ice/Water Magic, how to make a portable spell kit, and MORE!!
