Rituals for Your Inner Green Witch
It's no secret - we ladies here at Elements of Aura are deeply inspired by the Earth + her seasonal rhythms. So much of what we do here is based in energy work, herbalism, the elements, cyclical living and creating with intention. In addition to this business we love so dearly, we are also avid gardeners and believe in bringing a little magic to just about everything. Working with the elements in our gardens helps us to see the literal magic of nature's beauty and our intentions unfold in front of us, and we love to find ways to honor the Earth that allows us to live an abundantly beautiful life.
What is a Green Witch?
6 RITUALS FOR YOUR INNER GREEN WITCH
1. Dry Herbs + Preserve Harvests
Bringing the gifts of the earth from our gardens into our kitchens for healing remedies and nourishing meals is an important (and satisfying) part of tapping into the world of green magic! Whether you're hoping to build the plant medicine apothecary of your dreams or just trying get the most out of the food you've grown, a good place to start is to begin drying your herbs and preserving your vegetables. You can even experiment with drying a beautiful bouquet of flowers to enjoy throughout the winter!
2. Embrace the Change of Seasons
Connecting with the natural rhythms + the ever-changing seasonal shifts help us to be present in our environments and creates the foundation for powerful personal rituals. Using all 5 senses, notice what the energy of the seasons feels + looks like. Bring awareness to what is feels like in your mind, heart and body, or memories it brings to the surface. What part of the life cycle is this season associated with, and how is that being reflected in your own life? Reflect on these in your journal or during a meditation in your green space.
3. Herbal Ritual Baths
Just like crystals, herbs and flowers contain powerful energy that we can use to support our intentions and make our self-care ritual baths 10x more enchanting. Make a sachet of the herbs + flowers that call to you and align with your intention and toss it in your warm tub or under the faucet. Add epsom salts, essential oils and even some flower petals for a dreamier feel. Once you enter the water, close your eyes and imagine that all your worries are cleansed and purified from your aura. Take deep and slow breaths and feel the magic of knowing that you are your own healer.

5. Make Your Own Skincare, Teas + Medicine
In the end, the most important rule of thumb for the green witch is to always express thanks to the earth for what you take. Treat the earth with respect and you will inspire others to do the same. Be present, don't be wasteful, protect the Earth, give her offerings and intentions and you will surely feel her magic.
