Today, Weretoad and I went to a craft show in Clayton sponsored by the Thousand Islands Art Center. It was exquisite with high quality artisan crafts; probably the most diverse and interesting craft show I’ve ever seen – along with Utica’s Indie Garage Sale. Weretoad bought me a stained glass triquetra. I bought tea tree and fir essential oils and a foot scrubber from Harmony All Natural Soaps and Oils. I’m running low on oils lately. I like to use them as offerings to spirits and for certain magical workings. I very nearly bought juniper berry oil as Northern Europeans burned juniper as incense and I’ve found it to be very effective in my rites. I decided to go with fir needle instead because I recently made (and have been using) juniper smudge sticks and I’ve never had fir oil before. I rather like it and think it will be excellent for working with local nature spirits.
