You can find them anywhere… The Witch on Wheels has been documenting her findings.   Meet Priscilla Anne Tennant Herrington     The first time I met Priscilla Anne Tennant Herrington was on a weekend Mabon retreat. I was stuck by the energy she held, the gentleness with which she offered wisdom, often in the form of a question that made me think. When she began a pagan discussion group for LGPTQ youth, I volunteered to assist. When I was preparing to crone, she was one of my mentors. She’s one of the witchiest witches I know.  “The best thing that ever happened…

The second way is to buy the soap base from craft stores, melt, add ingredients, pour into molds. It’s that easy.   (image: soap with oatmeal)   Directions for the latter are on the package, so I’ll step through the first lazy method. [1] If you choose to use botanicals, sprinkle some in…
