loki-has-a-tardis:

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

Things I’ve learned

Easy Kitchen remedies:

  • Eat fresh ginger if you’ve got an upset stomach
  • Drink peppermint tea or chew on peppermint leaves when you have a stomach ache
  • Hold cloves against your gums to numb a tooth ache
  • Boil parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme and drink them to reduce fever
  • After cleaning a wound, apply honey to help it heal and keep it from getting infected
  • Drink catnip and lemon balm tea to calm down after a stressful day
  • Take 5 grams a night of powdered valerian root to help you sleep and combat depression
  • Eat garlic to promote digestive health and prevent diarrhea

Dealing with Spirits:

  • Always leave an offering to house spirits and garden spirits
  • Only hang bells where you don’t want spirits entering (though there are a few do actually like bells, but they’ve been nothing but positive in my experience)
  • Clean from the east side of the house, westward
  • If a fairy ring grows in your garden, wait for the mushrooms to start dying before you pull them out
  • If you “lost” an heirloom, check your jewelry box, curio cabinet, or the favorite spot your deceased relative liked to keep said object, even if you don’t put it there ever. It may not really be lost.
  • Always answer the door on Halloween, but don’t let anyone in. (this goes for creepy people too, not just spirits)
  • Your pet is not crazy. When s/he flips out, reassure them, and be aware that you may not be able to see what they can.

Believe in your own Abilities:

  • Don’t buy in to the power of persuasion. You may not notice anything supernatural, because there may not be anything supernatural going on.
  • If you think something happened because you cast a spell, even if you can’t “prove” it, then it happened *at least in part* because you cast a spell. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Sometimes, the only effect a spell has, is to give us enough confidence to deal with whatever it is we were asking for help with. That’s a success in my book, and it should be in yours too.
  • If you’ve got a bad feeling about something, then don’t do it.

HEY REMEMBER, the honey thing is only for raw honey! in the US most of the honey you can find is going to be pasteurized which destroys its antibacterial properties! go to ur local farmers market & get some raw honey
