Spiritual and Magical Properties of Essential Oils, Fragrance Oils, and Herbs

Season of Change

Now is the time to fully embrace Mother Nature’s wonderful and colorful changes. Be flexible like the season’s and willing to change for the better. Remember, it is never too late to change your life.

I do not like change. I can do it gradually, like the changing of the season’s, but a sudden change throws me for loops that takes me a while to get over. I have learned to let aromatherapy help me with gentle change and with sudden changes. Following are some recipes that I use:

Ease Into Change (Essential Oil Recipe)

Mix the following essential oils with 1 ounce carrier oil:

11 drops Cypress for Comfort

11 drops Mandarin for Inspiration

11 drops Myrtle for Peace

12 Bergamot for Success

Swirl gently until all oils are thoroughly mixed.

During a time of easing into a change(s), place 8 to 10 drops in your bath, wear 3 to 5 drops as a body perfume, and/or place 3 to 5 drops, added to water, in an Aroma Lamp, Diffuser, or Oil Burner.

Dealing with Disruptive/Sudden Change (Essential Oil Recipe)

Mix the following essential oils with 1 ounce carrier oil:

9 drops Clary Sage for Wisdom (Knowing the right thing(s) to do)

9 drops Bay Laurel for Strength

9 drops Vetiver for Protection

9 drops Celery Seed for Mental Control

9 drops Grapefruit for Acceptance/Attunement

Swirl gently until all oils are thoroughly mixed.

During a time of disruptive/sudden change(s), place 8 to 10 drops in your bath, wear 3 to 5 drops as a body perfume, and/or place 3 to 5 drops, added to water, in an Aroma Lamp, Diffuser, or Oil Burner.

You, yourself, as much as anybody else in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection



New Moon in Libra

Monday, October 12th, 2015 – New Moon in Libra

The Moon is in Libra all day, and reaches the Sun at 8:06 PM EDT. This New Moon launches a cycle that is good for committing to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Scales. We have a chance to build our negotiating skills without compromising our principles or needs, and without resorting to appeasement. It’s a time to work on re-balancing our relationships, and to recognize our partners as teammates rather than adversaries. With this potent Libra energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives. This is a time for learning to make peace with those around us, establishing a sense of order and balance in our lives, and recognizing the value of partnerships. Libra has an innate ability for, and love of, synthesizing opposites. Peace and harmony are the goals, but there’s a fine balancing act involved along the way that requires some commitment and effort. This New Moon brings fresh and creative energy into our lives, and more specifically, into our relationships. Negotiations may be especially effective, as we are inclined to assert our needs in ways that don’t offend others.


When the Moon’s in Libra, the beauty way calls us to balance our lives and loves. The mood is sociable, friendly, open, diplomatic, romantic, curious, indecisive, and aesthetic. It’s time to pursue social justice and negotiate as equals, time to beautify our world and nurture relationships.


…Yes, this life is a soar and a swing

for she who can see

the high wires and wings.

   And this life is a silly rhyme for she who’s

ripped the gag from her throat to sing.

   And it’s a hop, skip, and a jump for she who

has hacked the shackles from her feet.

   And this whole world is a prayer where she

daily files the callus from off her heart.

…Yes; then it is fun and then it is free, the

holy mess of our lives won so relentlessly.

If you’re prone to tilt your head and howl at the moon, like the great hunters the coyotes, October 27 will be the only night this month when the moon will be visible in the sky all night long. Just be mindful of the neighbors when you howl!

All you Moon Lovers Mark your calendars because this is the last Supermoon of the year! It is also known as a sanguine or “blood” moon, the term “Hunters Moon” is used traditionally to refer to a full moon that appears during the month of October. This full Moon is also called the Travel Moon and the Dying Grass Moon.

To the Native Americans full moons were a way to keep track of the seasons and make appropriate preparations for survival. Besides, with falling leaves and the fattening of wild game, also preparing for winter, who could argue that this month’s moon signaled a good time to go hunting. Hunter’s Moon the name for the full moon after the Harvest Moon, which is the full moon nearest the September autumnal equinox. That’s why October’s moon bears the name Hunter’s Moon.

The Hunters Full Moon is also called the Shedding Moon, Blood Moon, or the Falling Leaf Moon. Coming right before Samhain/Halloween, it is a time when the nights are crisp and clear, and you can sense a change in the energy around you. Halloween also marks the beginning of the Pagan New Year.

Gods: Herne, Apallo, Cernunnos, Mercury, Ishtar, Astarte, Demeter, Lakshmi

Element: Air

Colors: Dark blue, Black, Purple

Gemstones: Obsidian, Amethys, Tourmaline, Opal

Herbs: Apple Blossom, Pennyroyal, Mint, Sweet Annie, Thyme, Catnip, Angelica

Flowers: Calendula, Marigold Cosmos

Trees: Apples, Yew, Cypress, Acacia

Birds: Crow, Heron, Robin

Animals: Stag, Jackal, Elephant, Ram, Scorpion.

This is the time to give thanks to the animals, fruits, and vegetables during this moon for giving their lives so we can live.

Use red candles and burn cinnamon, nutmeg or ginger as your incense during this full moon.

This is the time when the veil between our world and the spirit world are at its thinnest. Use this time for spiritual growth. If there is a deceased ancestor you wish to contact, this is a great month to do it. Throughout October work on your spiritual self, and pay attention to messages you get in your dreams. Plan a ritual to remember those who have passed from this world, and be sure to make an offering to them.

As for Halloween night the moon will add mystery to the night..

The full moon is always a good time to pray, have ceremonies, and be reminded of the continuation of life. Enjoy my friends.

Full Moon Blessings,
Cherokee Billie


Full SuperMoon in Taurus:
Tuesday—October 27th
Taurus When the Moon’s in Taurus, our bodies, our garden, and our earthly connection need attention. The mood is stubborn, creative, fertile, and sensual, so slow down, get grouded, put in steady work, tend the body and feed the senses. Nurture rather than push. Plant seeds or ideas.
SuperMoon:  A SuperMoon is a New or Full Moon that occurs when the Moon is at or within 90% of perigee, its closest approach to Earth.  On average there are four to six SuperMoons each year.  Full SuperMoons could appear visually closer and brighter, and promote stronger tides.  Personally, we may use the greater proximity of SuperMoons to illuminate our inner horizons and deepen our self-reflections and meditations.

October 30th & 31st
Halloween & Samhain

 It’s Halloween also known as Samhain – the celebration the ancient Celts called Samhain. This marks the Celtic beginning of the New Year and winter. This celebration starts at sunset on October 31 to sunset November 1.Samhain is the Gateway to winter, where the veils are especially thin between these worlds of the seen and unseen. The Celts called the unseen realms the ‘Otherworld’, a place of beauty, rest, and renewal. Samhain is a time in the cycle of the year for slowing down. For connecting to your deep self and resting there in the healing power of your inner nature. It is the turning of the seasons where you can commune with the earth mother’s womb from which all that is created is birthed.

This marks the time to honor the worlds of the seen and unseen – our everyday world, and the worlds of imagination, mystery, and spirit.

Samhain is also a time for honoring your loved ones who have passed. Perhaps, you may want to light a candle and recall in your heart the cherished memories of loved ones who are no longer in the physical world.

Or you might simply gather some colorful autumn leaves to place in a bowl on your kitchen counter, to acknowledge what you would like to shed in your life and what you would like to seed deep within you for rebirth and renewal.

Straddling the line between fall and winter, plenty and paucity, life and death, Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition

The American Halloween tradition of “trick-or-treating” probably dates back to the early All Souls’ Day parades in England. During the festivities, poor citizens would beg for food and families would give them pastries called “soul cakes” in return for their promise to pray for the family’s dead relatives. The distribution of soul cakes was encouraged by the church as a way to replace the ancient practice of leaving food and wine for roaming spirits. The practice, which was referred to as “going a-souling” was eventually taken up by children who would visit the houses in their neighborhood and be given ale, food, and money.

The tradition of dressing in costume for Halloween has both European and Celtic roots. Hundreds of years ago, winter was an uncertain and frightening time. Food supplies often ran low and, for the many people afraid of the dark, the short days of winter were full of constant worry. On Halloween, when it was believed that ghosts came back to the earthly world, people thought that they would encounter ghosts if they left their homes. To avoid being recognized by these ghosts, people would wear masks when they left their homes after dark so that the ghosts would mistake them for fellow spirits. On Halloween, to keep ghosts away from their houses, people would place bowls of food outside their homes to appease the ghosts and prevent them from attempting to enter.

Halloween evolved into a secular, community-based event characterized by child-friendly activities such as trick-or-treating. In a number of countries around the world, as the days grow shorter and the nights get colder, people continue to usher in the winter season with gatherings, costumes and sweet treats.

So call it Halloween or Samhain take time to celebrate and enjoy this special time of year.

Many blessings,
Cherokee Billie


1 A Blessed Samhain

Samhain/Hallowmas: Saturday—Oct. 31st
October 31 Samhain/Mid-Fall: underworld journey, ancestor spirits—Hallowmas/Halloween (Euro-American), All Souls Day (Christian), Sukkoth (Jewish harvest). Goddess Festivals: Baba Yaga (Russia), Inanna (Sumer), Hecate (Greek). 
. . . We give honor to sisterwitches who have gone before, forgiveness to sisterwitches of this life, integration of one’s own earlier selves: bring all to the circle. Stir the cauldron. Celebrate the dark. The wonderful, scary, embracing, moon-changing, starflooded, mysterious, party-time, dreamtime, magikal dark. The time of transformation. Do not be afraid. Take back the night. We are the Witches, let there be nothing out there more wonderfully wicked than we!
