Mrs Darley's Fragrant Herbal

A Planetary Journey into the Aromatic World of Herbs, Oils, Resins and Spices 
For millennia, Nature’s aromatics have both enchanted and fascinated. Fragrant herbs,
perfumed oils, scented resins and exotic spices have been used to heal and harm, to preserve
and destroy and to worship and curse as the history of man has been written.
‘Mrs Darley’s Fragrant Herbal’, explores the fact that each herb, oil, resin and spice has a
planet, or heavenly body as its ruler, which has a marked effect upon its nature and
appearance and also upon the physical,emotional and psychological disorders it is
capable of easing.
As always, Mrs Darley, the author’s delightful and ever-wise next door neighbour
when she lived on Bodmin Moor in Cornwall back in the 1990’s, threads her way throughout
the book, teaching Carole about the healing properties of nature’s aromatics and their
importance in magick.
Carole was also to learn however, that even plants with darker energies and less fragrant
aromas can often prove to be invaluable.

June 2018

The beautiful month of June is already upon us and I often feel that I am never ready for the fact that the light will once again begin to diminish later this month as we celebrate the sun being at the height of his power. 
The Summer Solstice falls on the 21st this year at 12.07 and just two days later we celebrate Mid-summer's Eve (don't forget to leave out milk and cake for the fae). This is a magickal time, one of three occasions when the veil is thin and the portal to otherworlds often lie open...
The June new Moon is born on the 13th and is known as the Blessing, Mead or Honey Moon.The full Moon meanwhile falls on the 28th June and is the most southerly Moon of the year.
Jupiter and Venus are both visible in the evening this month, whilst the planets of Mars and Saturn are visible in the morning sky, just before dawn.
May the magick of Mid-summer be yours.
