What a week it has been

Trying to learn how to do most bath, body and home products may sound easy but it really isn't.
I cannot believe how exhausting it is and at the same time frustrating, the main reason is trying to find containers and the ingredients. Yes I know I found a site for containers, but I have been interested in making some deo, so need a roll on deo bottle. Can I find any site that sells them in the UK? No.
So I am gonna have to buy from America, I don't have anything wrong with buying from there, its just I would like to keep it some what local.
Also this is just my luck when I am searching for the ingredients, one site will have most of what I need and then there is just one thing missing. And of course the other site that sells that missing ingredient wont let you have it because you are not spending over £5.00 or something like that. So then you have to find something else you want to buy just to get that last item, its a bloody nightmare half the time!

At the moment I am trying to keep things simple, only make the items that I feel I can make.
But like I said things are very exhausting and frustrating at the moment.

Half the time I don't know what I am doing and wish I never started this, but I guess if I didn't I would just be regretting it now. I just wish things would go more smoother for me lol.

A small rant

Just been sitting here and been wondering what to do, and then it came to me that I wanted to do a video about certain things..But my camera dies on me, so it leaves me to write my thoughts down.

A few things have been bothering me about informational/How to videos I see on YouTube, when it comes to herbs, oils, spells and all those things.
I love to watch these type of videos as they can be educational, but I found something with them that I has started to irritate me, a lot. They all seem to talk about the good points of the certain subject but never seem to talk about the bad points, like the disclaimers or warnings and I that makes me feel like they don't do there research before doing the video, so I feel I cant trust them really on what they are saying because they ain't telling us the full details.
I cant stand when people don't put these disclaimer whether it be there videos or even on there products!

Oh gosh that is another thing that is irritating me. When people who are making and selling their own bath and body products and they don't put the ingredients or any warnings on, such as "may not be used while pregnant". But no one seems to do that, am I the only one who is getting annoyed by this?
This is probably why I haven't bought some peoples products, not because I don't like the person, but because they don't list the ingredients and don't put any warnings on. This puts me off their items all together, I bet they are great but I wanna be safe than sorry.

I also mentioned spells, so what could possibly be dangerous about spells? Well I have seen a few videos about banishing negativity energy, and they all say how great it is and how to use it, but they never mention the cautions!
You have to be so careful with banishing spells as they could pull someone away from you, such as your partner or a friend or is causing the negativity which you didn't realise, so it leaves you feeling more upset.

No one seems to think about these sort of things when it comes to spells and it makes me so angry that they don't do there research and yet they expect everything to go alright? It may do for the first few tries but then something really negative will bound to happen.

I just don't understand some people, thinking that they can get away with doing these sort of things and don't realise what could happen if they don't take any cautions.

Am I being over the top? I don't think I am, anyone who want to be safe and not have their arse burned will be doing the same thing and making sure they know how to do things properly, doing their research.

Crystals and Stones

I have been watching some videos about crystals and stones, and I agree with what some people say.
Why is it that some people prefer to work with crystals than stones? Stones can give us the same vibe or energy that we need and can be more stronger than a crystal. But we seem to always go for crystals because they look pretty and all that, where as a stone doesn't really look attractive to some.

I admit I do like to collect crystals, if I find a crystal I try to wait for a couple of weeks to see if I am still drawn to it and if I am then I will get it. For me crystals are more for decor, so I will place them around the house where it needs a certain energy as well as to colour the room.
I try to use stones to make talismans, maybe for my protection circle and in my rituals. For me stones do have a lot more energy than crystals. I try to find stones that are near the river or the sea as I am a water sign and wish to feel more closer to that element :)

I guess the other reason why I like stones better is because I roughly know where the stones come from, with crystals you don't really know. You don't know much about the people who have slaved away to find these crystals for us, are they being payed enough or not? Are they in healthy conditions or not? etc

Crystals are still nice and can hold some decent energy but if you live near the beach, a river or lake then maybe you should take a walk and see if you find any stones that connect with you. :)
