Info on properties of Night Queen & Amber (great healing & homeopathy & aromatherapy & spiritual essence.)

So I was reading up on incense properties, to refresh my memory.

I burn hand dipped naturals from Primo out of Oregon… and I’ve always had my favorites. Night Queen, and Amber. I love other smells, yellow rose, nag champa, patchouli, etc etc etc I have an incense collection that I could construct an entire altar with. But Night Queen and Amber are my stand-by smells – always.[[MORE]]

So considering the warfare within my body and heart and mind lately I was looking into it, from a religious standpoint for myself. I learned a couple of things.

1. Both Night Queen and Amber are Aura cleansing and more importantly aura healing scents.

2. Again, Both Night Queen and Amber are energy lifts during the day time, having the same effect as a cup of coffee, it is said they lift your mood and your energy in the afternoon.

Night Queen – (aka Night Jasmine) – Dreamwork, Prophetic Dreams, Money Drawing, Love. It is said if you are experiencing restless sleep or nightmares, try burning a sandalwood, frankincense, night queen or lavender incense before bed. It is said to be the choice herb/oil of Dianic women. It is also said, throughout history, it has been used to lower fevers, help with all forms of rheumatism, and sciatica. Other related properties: symbolic of the moon and of the mysteries of the night, can induce prophetic dreams if burned in the bedroom; also associated with good luck in love and wealth, anointing; Balance; Luck; Fortune; Justice; Happiness; Harmony; Peace; Meditation; Money; Riches; Astral Projection, Sleep, Healing and Health.

I also use the oil in a perfume solid form, made of beeswax and essential oils. Great in spell crafting or applying to chakras for specific purpose.

Amber Incense – Love, Protection, Cleansing, Meditation. Used to enhance and inspire the sensations of love, comfort and happiness. (Which we can all use more of, right?) In aromatherapy the oils (the same oils these sticks are dipped in) amber is applied in treating rheumatic (lupus…….) and thyroid ailments. It is not natural in itself. I didn’t know that. It is a resin, that oil can slightly be derived from, but has to be mixed with other oils, and the bits of amber resin added to it. (Which begs, what else is it mixed with??) It’s zodiac influence is Libra – as am I. It’s emotional property is stability and self confidence (maybe I should imbue amber more into my daily life, no?) It’s healing properties are general wellness, and physical maintenance. Magickal properties are Restoration, settling, end to turmoil and peace.

I also use the Auric Blends oil. I have since I was about 12. For all the purposes listed above. And I find it to be a great barrier when the veil is thin – for whatever reason, it strengthens my personal …. “filter” ….

Fair winds…. I hope some of you found this post useful.

So I’m 21 pages into “Night’s Child” by Cate Tiernan.

I will post no spoilers.

But I swear to the Goddess… at 21 pages, TWICE now I’ve been completely just….

And just now, I had to put down the book, because I just got my heart broken.  BY A FLIPPIN’ BOOK.

So I’m irritated in that distinctly female way that involves tears over uncontrollable nonsense.

(When I should be asleep.)

Book Review: The Prophet – Kahlil Gibran

The ProphetThe Prophet by Kahlil Gibran

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This, the value in the message transcends language, culture, and religion, to the core of who we are as people – with spirits. It was originally published in 1923, by Alfred Knopf, and has never been out of print. It is comprised of 26 prose, and has been translated into over 40 languages. It is transcendental in itself.

“Awake at dawn, with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving.”

It touches on things that make no sense to some the first time it is read perhaps.


  • The Coming of the Ship,
  • Love,
  • Marriage,
  • Children,
  • Giving,
  • Eating and Drinking,
  • Work,
  • Joy and Sorrow,
  • Houses,
  • Clothes,
  • Buying and Selling,
  • Crime and Punishment,
  • Laws,
  • Freedom,
  • Reason and Passion,
  • Pain,
  • Self-Knowledge,
  • Teaching,
  • Friendship,
  • Talking,
  • Time,
  • Good and Evil,
  • Prayer,
  • Pleasure,
  • Beauty,
  • Religion,
  • Death,
  • The Farewell.

It is indescribable in the ways that it can touch the soul. If you read it once through, and then again, by topic, whatever you are feeling then. Questions on love, death, pain, money…. read them one at a time and take the time to digest them, you will find answers that you discover were always within your heart.

Here I share with you an excerpt, on Death,
On Death
Than Almitra spoke, saying, “We would ask now of Death.”
And he said:
You would know the secret of death.
But how shall you find it unless you seek it in the heart of life?
The owl whose night-bound eyes are blind unto the day cannot unveil the mystery of light.
If you would indeed behold the spirit of death, open your heart wide unto the body of life.
For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.
In the depth of your hopes and desires lies your silent knowledge of the beyond;
And like seeds dreaming beneath the snow your heart dreams of spring.
Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.
Your fear of death is but the trembling of the shepherd when he stands before the king whose hand is to be laid upon him in honour.
Is the sheered not joyful beneath his trembling, that he shall wear the mark of the king?
Yet is he not more mindful of his trembling?
For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun?
And what is to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?
Only when you drink form the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.

Book Review: Solitary Witch: The Ultimate Book of Shadows for the New Generation – Silver Ravenwolf

Solitary Witch: The Ultimate Book of Shadows for the New GenerationSolitary Witch: The Ultimate Book of Shadows for the New Generation by Silver RavenWolf
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I actually don’t usually agree with much Silver Ravenwolf has to say.
However, there is much knowledge to be learned from this book.

Read it, take it with an open mind, adapt it and make it yours.
The knowledge within these covers venture from the simplest prayer
to circle casting, to taro, reiki, runes, and so on.

Of all of the SRW books, this is the one I’d recommend you own
if you want to study in this arena.

Book Review: Dead Witch Walking – Kim Harrison

Dead Witch Walking (Rachel Morgan/The Hollows, #1)Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

All the creatures of the night gather in “the Hollows” of Cincinnati, to hide, to prowl, to party … and to feed.

Vampires rule the darkness in a predator-eat-predator world rife with dangers beyond imagining — and it’s Rachel Morgan’s job to keep that world civilized.

A bounty hunter and witch with serious sex appeal and an attitude, she’ll bring ’em back alive, dead … or undead.

This is the first in the acclaimed “Hollows” series by Kim Harrison. No matter how many times I read this book, every time, I discover a new facet I have previously missed. The story is full of rich & colorful characters, that come to life within the pages and your heart. There is MEAT to the storyline that is gripping. Vampires. Witches. Pixies. Ghouls. Demons. With promises of more to come!!

This book introduces us to Rachel Morgan: Witch; Ivy Tamwood: Living Vampire; Jenks, Matalina, and Jax: Pixie family (plus many more) Nick Sparagmos: Human; Trent Kalamack: Unknown; Denon: Ghoul (aka human, made vampire, absolute bottom of the food chain.) Francis Perry: Glorified warlock who truly believes he is a witch (but is a slimy pain in the ass)…. and Keasley: Witch

The groundwork is set for a phenomenal series, written like none before it, and is not laden with overwhelming details, and a lagging storyline. Instead, from page one, it takes you on a trip through Cincy’s darker side, known as the Hollows, and those who dare live among it. It shows you the inner workings of a witch, a vampire, and a pixy, and how their lives tango within each other’s worlds, and all living among humans who are aware of their preternatural cohabitants.

There is action, gripping fear, hints at romance, suspense, mystery, paranormal, action, crime, and intensity from one chapter to the next. And Rachel Morgan? A whole new definition of HOT.
