This morning I woke up in a pissy mood. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s something to do with Mercury retrograde, or it’s maybe the constant dull headache that’s been plaguing me. At any rate, I realized that any good witch would NOT sit around boo-hooing about things, but rather find a way to take charge! Then I remembered my plant ally, lemons. The color lemon yellow is associated with the solar plexus chakra. This is the chakra where we feel happiness and joy, but also where we store our anger.

Lemons are great at cleansing an area of stuck and murky energy. Squeeze some lemon juice in your bucket with your mop water. Wipe your counters with lemon juice. Boil lemon peel in your kitchen cauldron to cleanse the air and breath in the citrusy scent to cleanse your own energy. Throw the used lemons in your garbage disposal and grind them up to cleanse the drain as well.

Today I put several drops of bergamot essential oil in my difuser for an uplifting effect. I think of bergamot oil as “the happy oil”, and as fate would have it, the bergamot plant is a citrus that is a cross between a type of lemon and orange. Some people call it sweet lemon. Bergamot is also what’s added to tea to make Earl Grey tea. A cup of Earl Grey sounds good right now…I feel better already!

Lemony Blessings,

Now, some of what I’m going to talk about in this post might get a little personal for some of you. You may feel like clicking on past me when you find out what I’m into, but hear me out.

Ok. Here goes. I’m a vegan kitchen witch. I don’t eat animals (meat) or any of their by products (dairy, eggs, etc.) I eat “nothing with a face or a mother”, as my vegan daughter would say. What I DON’T plan to do in this post is to preach at my readers. We all make the decision to go vegan or even to cut back on animal products on our own. There are definite health benefits to a plant based diet, but as a pagan with a nature based spirituality, the fact is that eating a plant based diet is healthier for the planet. And at this moment in time the health of Mama Gaia takes on even more importance than ever.

If you want to know more about the vegan lifestyle, then I can recommend some excellent resources:

Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret: https://www.cowspiracy.com/

What the Health (on Netflix)

Game Changers (on Netflix)

And an excellent website with loads of information: https://nutritionfacts.org/

What this vegan kitchen witch DOES plan to do from now on is to post delicious vegan recipes and cooking tips that EVERYONE can enjoy along with the magickal energies that these plant based dishes contain. Stay tuned!

Yummy Plant Based Blessings,

Sarina
