“Plastic Witches,” Insecurity, and Witchcraft Alone

The conversation surrounding “realness” and authenticity in witchcraft–who’s in, who’s out–is an old one (*yawn*), and one that I think ultimately finds its roots in insecurity. When there’s no instagram, no community, no coven, and no one standing around to validate us, is our practice still worthwhile? Who are we when we’re alone?

  1. Something that may help you out with that cough – the “1-2-3 Cold Cure”

    Take 1 lb of white onion, 2 lbs of honey. Cut up your onion into chunks and place them in a bowl. Pour the honey over it. Cover the bowl and place it in the fridge to steep for 3 hours. Strain it off, and add lemon juice to taste. Take 2 tablespoons of this twice a day. It’s very high in vitamin C, it doesn’t really taste that bad, and it can soothe your throat.

    If you have any left over by the time it clears up, you can glaze a ham with it. 🙂

    There’s something I’ve been wondering about and you’re probably the person to ask. Before the Victorian age or so, were there people who actually called themselves “witches”?

Say words at me.
