How to make Fairy Dust
To draw out the bliss inherent in our nature,
create your own "fairy dust."
This potion may be used to anoint magical tools,
amulets and candles for spelling happiness.
It also makes a wonderful gift.
This special celebration of magic requires an extensive
list of ingredients including:
-A clear, pink, amethyst, or iridescent glass vial or bottle
(Note: Hand-Blown Egyptian bottles are nice for this)
-A small piece of polished rose quartz
-Pieces of mica
-A fresh flower blossom, small enough to fit in the opening
of your chosen flask
(pixie carnations and sweetheart rose buds are fitting choices,
a small lavender bud is tiny, too.)
-Charms of fairy, butterfly, star forms
-Pink or rainbow-hued ribbon (holographic ribbon works nicely)
-Small bells or a chiming sphere
-A quartz or lead crystal point
-A piece of parchment
-Silver and gold ink
-A pink candle
-A small bottle of jojoba for the potion base
-All or any of these oils to blend:
Benzoin, Geranium, Jasmine, Neroli and Ylang-Ylang
Listen for the sound of children's laughter as you pursue
this quest, it is the most powerful enchantment in all.
During the waxing Moon, light the pink candle and set it to burn.
Create a pleasing essential blend from the oils you have selected.
Mix the blend with enough jojoba to fill your chosen vessel.
The essence should be strong (using Fragrance Oils may require
more of the scented oil base
- Pure Essential Oils are best
- Check out New Moon's apothecary section).
Crumble the mica into fine pieces.
Add them to the jojoba. If you have chosen a clear vial or bottle,
you may wish to give it a pale tint of pink.
Tint the jojoba before mixing it with the essential oils.
You may do this with a trace of red food colouring.
Fill the vial with the jojoba, essential blend and mica particles.
On the parchment, trace a circle with silver ink.
Next draw four semi-circles,evenly spaced around,
overlapping the first circle at the four cardinal points,
to form four crescents, with the ends of the semi-circles
pointing away from the centre.
This represents the full moon and her four quarters.
It is recognized as the Icelandic Wishing Rune.
Picture yourself in an enraptured state of bliss,
surrounded by flowers.
Your heart feels as light as a butterfly on the wing.
With this feeling, draw in gold ink, the rune, "Wunjo".
It resembles the letter P, with the loop pointed,
to form an equilateral triangle against the upright base.
Roll the parchment tightly and seal it with a short tie
of ribbon and a drop of pink wax.
Add the following to your potion in this order:
the rose quartz, the flower blossom and parchment scroll.
Stopper the bottle and heal it with a generous amount of pink wax.
You want to do this by melting a pool of wax in a container
only slightly larger than the top of the bottle.
Invert the bottle and fully immerse the area of the opening
in the melted wax.
You will need to work quickly, unless you have a brazier
or something to keep it warm. (If you're using a bottle
with a stopper,such as the Egyptian style bottles,
just drop the wax evenly between the space of the stopper
and the bottle.)
Finish by tying with ribbon and fastening the charm(s),
the crystal and the bells to the knot or bow
