Some people watch the Superbowl; we watch the Oscars like it's a Superbowl event. And it's officially time to make Oscar strew. Yes, I will clean up the house, clear out any etheric goo, and throw stuff on the floor! And leave it there until the next day.
I like to play around with things from year to year and while I love the recipe I have left on my blog previously while talking strews, I wanted something fresh and different for this year seeing as how I need a new cup anyway. . . new strew too!
Throw away your fancy measuring utilities, wash your hands and dry them well; just use your hands, because as you grab a handful of herbs you're gonna want to focus on it's purpose and of course your gonna use your hands some more to mix it all up while focusing on a happy celebratory vibe for your Oscar viewing pleasure. Of course, I am including a special something something for the great mistress of beauty and the artes: Aphrodite!
Oscar Strew 2013 Edition
( a modest handful of each as to make enough to sprinkle on your floor)
Rosemary blossoms ( or leaves if you have none) for mental agility and stamina
Calendula as we will also be honoring those in the craft who have passed the veil
Olive leaves for peace of heart
Lavender for calm nerves
Roses for the love of the arte
St John's Wort to avoid any mischief.
And for the Mistress of art and beauty Myrtle leaf
Happy mixing and tossing! Sit back and enjoy the glamouries that are sure to ensue!
