Another busy day for a witch can mean a lot of meditation and fasting and preparation in the arts of dust making... In this particular case, a dust made for a friend from a recipe in my cunning book. Poison things are a dance with death and devil, a twisted thing that can corrupt all it touches. I'm careful in the preparation of crab dust; a protection and hexing dust requested of me by a good friend who felt she needs more protection at her disposal against an unwanted guest in her life. Crab dust does nasty things to nasty people.

1/2 vial of dew from the woodhorn of an appletree collected on the full moon, hour of Venus

A pinch of blue lotus.

Damiana liquor, jasmine water, with vanilla bean, anise and catnip steeped two weeks prior are another favorite ritual drink for rituals in which love talismans and amulets are being created and the red spirits need feeding.
