What Would Sally Owens Do? Three “Practical” Magickal Remedies

What Would Sally Owens Do? Three "Practical" Magickal Remedies

I’ve decided to continue the “What Would the Witches Do?” blog series that began with Paige, Piper and Phoebe Halliwell, considering that there are so many wonderfully inspiring witches out there in popular culture! The series will live on starting with the ladies from Practical Magic. First up, are three “practical” remedies from Sally Owens:

For Chapped Lips: Healing Lemon Verbena Honey Lip Balm

2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon honey
3/4 teaspoon grated beeswax
1/2 teaspoon pure raw shea butter
½ teaspoon powdered vitamin E
Several sprigs organic lemon verbena
Olive oil

At least a week ahead, rinse organic lemon verbena, pat dry and gently bruise. Place in a bottle of olive oil. Seal and let sit in a cool, dark place until ready to use.

In a small saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil, honey, wax and shea butter over low heat until just melted. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes.

Stir in desired amount of lemon verbena infused oil and powdered vitamin E. Pour into appropriate containers.

For Dry Skin: Beautifying Avocado Facial Mask

1 organic avocado
2 tablespoons honey
½ cup pure organic apple juice
Rosemary essential oil

Scrape inside of avocado into a small bowl and mash with a fork. Vigorously combine with honey, juice and oil.

Apply to a clean face and let sit for 15-20 minutes. Rinse with warm water.

For Brittle Fingernails: Strengthening Oil Soak

½ cup olive or coconut oil
1 teaspoon tea leaves

Combine tea leaves and oil. Soak fingers for 5-10 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
