    Gods & Goddesses
    All this talk of Gods & Goddesses raises questions of sexual politics. I hope it is obvious that witches have respect for people of any gender, (the western habit of only recognizing two genders is rather limiting), but perhaps it may not be clear where we stand on sexuality. When I talk about Gods & Goddesses, their mystical marriage & sexual congress, I am speaking symbolically. This is a model to make sense of something ultimately beyond full comprehension. It does not mean that heterosexuality is the norm. The Gods & Goddesses can be as queer as any of us!

    Several God & Goddess forms are particularly important to me, most especially Hekate & Mercury. I have already discussed Hekate in some detail.

    Mercury, also known as Hermes,is the quicksilver messenger of the Gods. It's obvious to me the Mercury is the God of the Internet, so it feels particularly appropriate to celebrate Him here. This is the glyph (symbol) of Mercury. I recommend that you copy it onto your computer immediately! His energy is rather tricky, as the God of communication is also the Lord of Lies. You can see why I call Him 'God of the Internet'. Language is a difficult thing to hold down; it has an inherent tendency to be misunderstood. We are in the realm of the poet & the Fool now, who are both dedicated to Mercury even if they remain unaware of it.

    ''Guardians of the dream world I would like to see my future.
    So mote it be.''

    P.S. This spell is use to ask the dream world guardian to tell us what we want to know. You can ask everything like animal totem, future, guide, etc.

    Basics

    The basics of making a Balm are to extract the beneficial properties of herbs in oil, then add beeswax to harden the oil. You may also add other ingredients such as essential oils, or even flavorings in the case of making lip balms. In some recipes the process of infusing oils is skipped entirely and essential oils are used on their own with various carrier oils.

    For each recipe below that does use herbs you will infuse your oil first. To learn more about infusing oils please see How to Infuse Oils. I like to leave my herbs to infuse on their own for at least one full moon cycle. Others may wish to use heat for a more rapid infusion.

    Depending on the freshness and the type of herbs you are using you may wish to strain the oil and add more herbs once or twice. This is entirely up to you. I find that by using very fresh herbs in generous quantities that I do not need to do this. I also use essential oils in my balms very often, however, so you may wish to do the strain and add method if you choose to leave the essential oils out of the balm you are making.

    Once your oil is ready you will melt your solid oils and any wax you are using in a pan over very low heat. Next add your infused oil and test for hardness as explained in the tips below. Cool slightly and add essential oils if you are using them. Pour into containers and label and you are all set.

    Tips for Making Balms

    If you intend to make your Balm using freshly collected plants, you will want to clean them first. Do this by shaking them to remove dirt then spread the herbs out to allow them to air dry for several hours (until wilted) to reduce the moisture content. Any herb that contains a lot of moisture could cause your Balm to spoil or even mold. For this reason I, myself, prefer to use dried herbs in my oil to avoid contamination and excessive moisture which may cause such spoilage.

    Once you add your wax you will want to test to see if your Balm is the right consistancy. To do a simple test I dip a spoon into the mixture and set it in the freezer for a minute or two. You might also try is dipping the spoon into ice water for a few moments. If your Balm is too soft, add more beeswax and if it is too hard add a little more carrier oil.

    You will want to pour your Balm into sterilized containers and label them accordingly. You may sterilize by simply washing in very hot water in the dishwasher with a detergent containing bleach or by using bleach in the rinse water if washing by hand. Air dry to avoid re-contaminating your containers and again causing premature spoilage.

    Do not add any essential oils when your base oil is very very hot-it may very well destroy them in the process.

    Be sure pans are non-metal such as glass or porcelin If you must use metal pans or utensils be sure they are not made of aluminum and they are not coated with a non-stick surface.

    To add vitamin E, poke a hole in the capsule with a pin and squeeze out the contents. Discard the capsule.

    Be careful when using some essential oils and even carrier oils. They can cause allergic reactions. For instance those who are allergic to nuts should be careful and avoid using almond oil or any other oil derived from nuts including peanut and walnut oils. Be sure when selling or giving gifts of balms to label them with all ingredients to avoid someone having a life threatening reaction.

    You really should heat your oils and waxes over hot water in a double boiler.

    Be very sure your containers are made for pouring hot liquids into. Many are not and there is nothing worse than spending a month making a lovely oil and getting your balm made and having your containers crack and spill it all over the counter top!

    Proportions for beeswax are approximate. If you want a harder or softer balm add or subtract from your recipe accordingly.

    You can also soften balm a bit by adding borax and water. The borax acts as an emulsifier and will allow the water and oil to mix rather than separate. I use 1 teaspoon of borax in 1 cup of water. Do not add the whole cup of water to your recipe! Add a few drops or a quarter teaspoon at a time at the most and then test your consistency. Keep doing this until it reaches the desired level. It will cause your balm to harden quickly so do this last.
