So I know I haven't put out a lot of cosplay content the last few weeks, I've just been dealing with the fact that there's a lot going on in my personal life, I am working on some new stuff, but I am letting people know I am in fact alive and I'm fine. XD But here's me being a HECCIN witch.
I *love* dragons blood resin! And it's been used for so many things for so long: the Romans used it as a dye, the Middle East used it as a medicine, violinists used it as a varnish, in India it's an incense, it's used for love in Hoodoo and a power booster and protection with many NeoPagans today.
Unfortunately, thanks to global warming, over-harvesting its resin, and urban development; Dragons Blood palm (Dracaena cinnabari) is now endangered. Its relative, Daemonorops draco, is vulnerable- near endangered. And there are currently no operating tree farms for sustainable extraction alone, and many times suppliers will use either of these types without knowing which one it is as there's not always proper tracking. If at all possible, please attempt an alternative ingredient for your practice so this tree population can recover, as they're important for our history and culture, as well as for the Earth. 🌴 #sacredtous

The Cailleach Crone riding her mythical dryad from fall into winter.🍂 #cailleach#wisewoman#creatorgoddess 🍂“The figure of a divine female power acting and shaping nature and landscape is a popular one in the Gaelic world of Ireland and Scotland. In many stories the Cailleach Beara acts as this autonomous woman that is in direct contact with nature who is in fact the creator of part of the environment that people can perceive around them. It gives an importance and a certain magical otherworldly value to them. The hag of Beara depicts female creativity as the major source of the actual physical environment. And highlights the nurturing quality this female power can have in both landscape and society. However as an impersonation of the wilderness of nature she is both it's spiritual and destructive potential.” Photo by @jackofalltrees#irelandgoddess#moonmna#ritesofthecrone#triplegoddess#treespiritproject#baytree#hag#bayareatrees#druid#druidry#celticshamanism
