Esbat Crafts - Hay Moon

These crafts come from the book Moon Magick: Myth & Magic, Crafts & Recipes, Rituals & Spells by D.J. Conway.  It's one of my favorite Pagan/Wiccan books and I highly recommend it!  The crafts that follow appear on page 139 of the 2005 printing by Llewellyn Publications.

Floral Mix for Sachets
1/2 ounce dried roses and/or peony petals
1/2 ounce lavender
1 Tablespoon orris powder
5 drops of rose geranium oil

Lightly mix together the mignonette, dried roses, and lavender.  Sprinkle with orris powder and geranium oil.  Toss lightly and fill small sachet bags.

Men's Sachet
Men don't usually care for sweet sachets or pillows.  This mixture generally meets with their approval.  Little sachets of this also make good shoe deodorizers.
Dry and grind the peel of one orange into coarse pieces.  Don't let orange rind dry too hard, or it's like trying to grind rocks!  Mix this with 1 Tablespoon orris powder and 1/2 ounce lemon verbena.  Fill small sachet bags.

Tibetan Cologne
1/3 pint alcohol
1 ounce glycerin
1 drop bergamot oil
1 pint distilled water
1 drop patchouli oil
1 drop synthetic musk oil
