Green Moon's Lavender & Lemon Infused Shortbread Crescent Moon Cookies (and other witchy recipes)

Merry Meet witches! I've always enjoyed cooking and baking for myself and others. Layering intention and focus into the cooking process helps to whisk a little magick into the mix and allows me to whip up tasty enchanting treats! To celebrate Litha and the summer solstice, I chose to bake some delicious crescent moon shortbread cookies featuring two very summery flavours, lavender and lemon. Ingredients 1 cup all-purpose flour 1/4 tsp. salt 1/3 cup granulated sugar 1 1/2 tsp. culinary lavender mixed with organic lemon peel (lavender is great for love, friendship and harmony magick and the lemon wonderful for summer and happiness magick) 1/2 cup unsalted butter* softened 1/2 tsp. vanilla...

Litha Strain Recommendation: White Widow

On the summer solstice, we celebrate Litha and the life-giving sun! It is a time for light magick, honouring love, luck, abundance, fertility, and joyous energy. Litha, as with many celebrations, is centred around gathering with your witchy clan and loved ones around a bountiful table of delicious love-infused food or roaring bonfire.  We may not be able to congregate across a glorious banquet table decorated with spring flowers, finger-licking BBQ and seasonal fruits and vegetables, but we can still bring light into our lives with food. This is especially wonderful for the weed loving witch, as we all know...

Litha Sabbat Strain Recommendation: Golden Pineapple

Image Credit: stuffstonerslike.com - Mat Lee Given that Litha is a celebration of the sun and all its power, my midsummer strain recommendation harnesses that same energetic magic that the sun delivers! Pretty much liquid sunshine in the form of cannabis, Golden Pineapple has uplifting effects. Just like a kiss from the Sun, this strain brings unadulterated happiness. You’ll want to dance, sing, and enjoy everything the day has to offer. Think of it as a summer vacation paired with a pineapple shake wrapped up in a happy-go-lucky weed flower. With a sweet, fruity, tropical flavour with tiny hints of sourness,...
