Spirit branch offerings- April pink moon

We tied and crafted two new offerings for our spirit branch tonight. 

My offering was green and gold and used yarn, embroidery thread, aventurine beads, and a piece of jade tied to a turmeric root for healing.  I annointed it with some healing oil and lit a healing candle once it was attached to the branch.

Tomorrow I’m planning on making us some Damiana tea and finding some time for hot Bear and Goat nookie.  🙂

It’s been a tough road trying to learn how to manage my symptoms and keep from crashing and burning.  I’ve learned that meat is bad, sleep…
