October is a wonderful time to connect in with our ancestors. Long ago before kids put on costumes and ran door to door collecting candy from neighbors; Halloween was celebrated the thinning of the veil between our ancestors and us. People would leave out food offerings by their front doors for their ancestors. If they went out to gather with friends and family, they would wear masks to protect them from any harmful spirits. In Hispanic culture Halloween is still celebrated for the thinning of the veil. They continue the celebration for two more days with pictures, keepsakes, food, drinks, music, and laughter to keep their ancestors’ stories alive.
Our women’s circle Bloom will be taking the month of October to bring our ancestors’ stories to light. We will be celebrating where we’ve come from and how we got here. This group will be meeting every Thursday at 6pm. For more information contact MeeshaKeena 208.353.0604 or click the button below!

Bay Leaf is a wonderful herb to add to soups and curries, but did you know that Bay Leaf is a powerful herb used to help stimulate appetite, relieve stomach ulcers, reduce flu symptoms and flatulence?
Bay Leaf is known for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory qualities. The oil is used to treat arthritis, muscle aches, bruising and swelling. Bay leaf is wonderful for aid for the bronchial system. Used as a poultice on the chest you can use Bay leaf for relief of bronchitis.
Use Bay Leaf to help treat dandruff when applied to the scalp. Also, it has been known to be used to reduce headaches, help process insulin (resulting in lowering the blood sugar) and treat skin boils.
Bay Leaf has ancient Roman roots. Bay Leaf comes from the Laurel tree and as the story goes Eros stuck both Apollo and nymph Daphne with golden arrows. After this Daphne fled from Apollo and she was later turned in a Laurel tree. Greif redden Apollo decided that he would honor the athletes with her “noble laurel” in his Pythian Games.
Athletes, poets, and war victors were honored with circlets or crowns made of the leaves of the Laurel tree. This showed that they were special in the eyes of the Gods. The phase “resting on your Laurels” refers to those who chose to relay on the past victories in their lives instead of trying for new victories or achievements.
Dry Bay Leaves are a wonderful tool in helping to release and cleanse your body and spirit. Take a dry leaf and write down what no longer services and burn the leaf. This same process can also be used to help aid in cord cutting ceremonies and manifestation work. The burning of dry Bay Leaf can also help clear and clean the air with all medicinal properties much like burning sage.
Placing Bay Leaf under your pillow can help dream retention. Bay Leaf aids in increasing one with psychic abilities and clairvoyance. Which makes this a wonderful tool for any ancestor work, especially if paired with Mullein and Mugwort.
If you choose to cook with whole Bay Leaves, be sure to remove the Bay Leaves the dish before serving. Whole Bay leaves cannot be digested and can get stuck in your throat or digestive track, creating blockage or puncturing the lining.
There is not enough information on the effects to those who are pregnant or breastfeeding so avoid if possible. Also avoid use of Bay Leaf if you’re going into surgery, since it slows down the central nervous system there is concern that combined with anesthesia or other medicine used in surgery would not be good. Bay Leaf can and will interact with medicines use caution if taking diabetes mediation.
(pronounced kaar – neel – yn)
This is a beautiful fiery stone of confidence, vitality, motivation, and joy. With its red hue carnelian supports the Root and Sacral Chakras. I might just reach for this wonderful stone as the fall days get shorter, to help get me moving on the chilly, dark mornings.
It is said that this stone helps fight off negative energy coming from others that may be zapping your energy and it will help bring more positive energy your way. Great for using in ancestor work.
Carnelian is also helpful with diseases typically associated with yang energy such as neuralgia, rheumatism, depression, and slow metabolism.
If you are into Feng Shui, carnelian statue placed facing south would help bring abundance, luck, and success. Facing it West, it can help boost your creative pursuits.
