Do you (anyone) use vinegar for house hold cleaning?  I was thinking about a suggestion from Diane Sylvan to take white vinegar, baking soda, and essential oils (lemon or orange), but I'm not sure what the parts are.  If you use it, could you let me know?  Or perhaps list any natural cleaning products you use?

I like to use equal parts vinegar and lemon juice for a toilet and drain cleaner.

I use alot of herbs while cooking, in teas and spell sachets. I use oils for blessings, deodorising rooms and cold warding (I hate colds).

For what purpose humanity is there should not even concern us: why you are there, that you should ask yourself: and if you have no ready answer, then set for yourself goals, high and noble goals, and perish in pursuit of them! I know of no better life purpose than to perish in attempting the great and the impossible...

- Nietzsche, unpublished note from 1873

I know there are several of us on here who call ourselves Kitchen Witches (or Green, Hedge, Cottage...).  I'm just wondering what you do to incorporate your brand of magic into your lives?  Do you use herbs daily?  Only when needed?  Do you say a little spell over your food while you're cooking?  Care to share what it is?  Do you stir deosil, or widdershins?  Wink  Do you use herbs other than in your food (i.e. in charms, for bathing or as incense)?

I use herbs daily, usually in herbal ice tea and to rinse my hair.  I take one tablespoon of dried herb and run about a half gallon of hot water over the mixture and let it steep for several minutes, then I strain the herbs out.  It makes for a nice hair rinse, chamomile can be used for lighter colored hair and sage or lavender for darker colored hair, as this mixture gives your hair a nice shine and I used it as a finally rinse.

I do stir deosil and sometimes make patterns with a spoon in the food I am stirring, like a star or a heart or just a happy face.  I usually just say a small chant or prayer when cooking, such as, "may this food bring health and happiness to my family, thank you for this bountiful meal".

I also use herbs in ritual and spell castings.  I generally make a mixture up and burn the herbs on top of some salt or a charcoal block.  I also always make what I call special moon water to use, I put out a couple containers of water during the full moon to be charged with energy from the full moon.  I cap the jars and keep them in the fridge and use the water in cooking and also to take a sip from if I am feeling less than normal that day.
