in preparation

Cronewort and Juniper waiting to be bound.
Tomorrow is Solstice. I don't have much in the way of garden variety vegetables for the altar. The weather has not been a Tomato Happy one. So I hauled out herbs meant for bundling, dried from last year. Some Cronewort (Artemisia vulgaris) and Eastern Red Cedar or Juniper (Juniperus virginiana) all good for the protective and integrative (instead of clearing) properties.

Bennie and I sat this afternoon making up a few little beauties for smudging or just all-round incense. What's nice is how it was all grown here, half way up our mountain. These Cronewort and Juniper bundles will be added to tomorrow's altar for Solstice.

And now I'm off to find some sunny, summer things to add as well . . .

Finished bundles ready for use.
