Divination Tea for Samhain

Merry Meet everyone!

Some of you will already be aware, but I have been busy over the last couple of days making my first video for the Diary of a Witch.

The primary idea was to show you how easy working with herbs in your magical work is! As I promised in the video, I am also working on producing factfiles for all of the herbs that I used for the infusion! This is an alternative drink that you can consume (maybe for Samhain?) as opposed to the Dandelion root that I posted about last week!

As a side note, this infusion is perfectly safe and legal, however, do not operate machinery for a couple of hours after drinking!

  • Coffee Maker (or a mug and muslin!)
  • Hot Water
  • 1 Tsp Thyme
  • 1 Tsp Yarrow
  • 1 Tsp Mugwort
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick
  • about 4 Cloves
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • Book of Shadows
OK, as the video shows, this couldn't be simpler - stick all of the herbs in your coffee maker, pour in hot water and steep for a minimum of 5 minutes!

When you have done this, just strain it, and drink before divination!! This drink can be a bit bitter, so you can add a touch of honey to sweeten if you would like :)

This is the first video that I have made for The Diary of a Witch, so let me know what you think and until next time, Blessed Be x

P.S - I'm having a bit of a dilemma on where to store the jars and jars of herbs I have obtained - where do you all keep yours? Comments welcome!


  1. Goodjob on your video ^.^
    I keep my herbs in jars and bags in a cabinet thingy. usually out of the light and heat

  2. Your divination tea actually sounds tastier than my version, lol! I'm going to have to try this one out!
