I noticed that some people I know get very confused on 2 parts this, 4 parts that, and 1 part of something else.
I don't know how many here are confused about this, but I think I have a good idea on how to explain it.
1. Figure out the size of "1 Part". Whether that's a milligram or a pound, it's your mixture and money spent.
2. Take 1 part, and double it. That's two parts.
3. Triple 1 part, you get three.
Deceptively simple isn't it? However, some can get very confused and feel hindered by not knowing what something means, and being too afraid or nervous to ask.
It's okay, we've all wondered something, and felt we'd sound "stupid" or "like a nube" if we asked.
For one, being new to something gives you an opportunity to learn more than you'd ever expect.
You find people are willing to help if you're just honest. :)
Even if some terms in herbalism or any other magickalspiritual practice seem hopelessly complicated, chances are, you just need to ask.
It's probably more simple than you think.
I hope you liked my weirdly simple explanation, and the related tangent thereafter.
Warmest wishes. :)
