    Just finished making some handy dandy…

    Oil of Malediction!

    This shit smells so foul like a whiff has me about fall over and it makes me feel like I’m about to puke. Even after it’s been sealed I still feel sick which means it’s perfect! Lol. And extremely deadly toxic.

    It has….

    9 nightshade berries
    3 plucks of nightshade flowers
    3 mugwort leaves
    A piece of water hemlock root
    A seed head of water hemlock
    One leaf, flower, and seed pod of foxglove
    9 black peppercorns
    3 crown vetch flowers
    A red hot chili pepper
    Ground mustard seed
    Poppy seed
    Garlic
    Rattlesnake skin
    Graveyard dirt
    Blood red tombstone moss
    A few sharp shards of black Tibetan quartz
    13 wild rose thorns
    Patchouli oil
    Cinnamon oil
    About two ounces of castor oil
    And then filled rest of the way with olive oil

    That’s neat :)

    1. Your skin may never be perfect, and that’s okay.

    2. Life is too short not to have the underwear, the coffee, and the haircut you want.

    3. Everyone (including your family, your coworkers, and your best friend) will talk about you behind your back, and you’ll talk about them too. It doesn’t mean you don’t love each other.

    4. It’s okay to spend money on things that make you happy.

    5. Sometimes without fault or reason, relationships deteriorate. It will happen when you’re six, it will happen when you’re sixty. That’s life.

    The Toraja are an ethnic group indigenous to a mountainous region of South Sulawesi, Indonesia. They are best known for a row of fascinating funeral rituals.

    In Toraja society, the funeral ritual is the most elaborate and expensive event. The death feast is usually attended by thousands and lasts for several days.

    Torajans traditionally believe that death is not a sudden, abrupt event, but a gradual process toward Puya (the land of souls, or afterlife). During the waiting period, the body of the deceased is wrapped in several layers of cloth and kept in the family home. The soul of the deceased is thought to linger around the village until the funeral ceremony is completed, after which it begins its journey to Puya.

    There are three methods of burial: the coffin may be laid in a cave or in a carved stone grave, or hung on a cliff.
    It contains any possessions that the deceased will need in the afterlife. The wealthy are often buried in a stone grave carved out of a rocky cliff. The grave is usually expensive and takes a few months to complete. In some areas, a stone cave may be found that is large enough to accommodate a whole family. The coffin of a baby or child may be hung from ropes on a cliff face or from a tree. This hanging grave usually lasts for years, until the ropes rot and the coffin falls to the ground.

    In the ritual called Ma’Nene, that takes place each year in August, the bodies of the deceased are exhumed to be washed, groomed and dressed in new clothes. The mummies are then walked around the village.
