That recipe is natural flavoured syrups. We're going to cover two types here: infused syrups and juice-based syrups. These are also going to be simple syrups - equal amounts of water and sugar by volume. (Though this measurement is skewed to more sugar-heavy when using juice.) I prefer this ratio because it's easy to measure, keeps well in the fridge, and has almost always worked well in mixed drinks, flavoured lemonades, sodas, and as tea sweetener.
Hey, best witches! I teased it in January, and now it's almost here. We're doing interviews with witches, pagans, and other magical & spiritual sorts.
Many people have different definitions for the beginning of spring. For some, Imbolc is the first day of spring, for others it is spring equinox. For some, it's marked by a holiday like Easter or Spring Day. As a child, I always heard the first day of spring was the first day you saw a robin. My new family doesn't measure spring in birds; we measure it in flowers.
Imbolc is a pagan holiday halfway between winter solstice and spring equinox. It symbolizes the return of early spring. In this post, I examine how that relates to dealing with grief.
So it's THORSday again, and it's day 2 of the Thor's 30 Days of Deity Devotion: "How did you first become aware of this deity?"
We're on day 8 of the challenge with writing about Frigg, and the assignment is "variations on this deity (aspects, regional forms, etc.)" Which I think is the perfect time to dive into the Frigg-Freyja controversy (and other times Frigg is conflated with other gods).
You'll generally see Frigg posts on Friday. But it got really long and I'm very sick, so you'll have to wait.
