Elemental Bottles

Elemental Bottles
~author unknown

This idea is for those that would like to bottle the elments for
their altar. Possibly for those who are not able to have a regular
alter set up. The idea is to take 4 of those small coloured glass
bottles with the cork lids (or the ones that have a rubber seal with
a metal closure, and fill them with things representing the 4
elements, such as:

Red: (fire) Ash from a fire, matches

Green: (Earth) small stones, soil, salt

Yellow: (Air) feathers, little toy birds

Blue: (Water) Water, shells, sand

Here is a list of some of the
oils/herbs for the elements...

Water: (oils/herb) Lemonbalm, Gardenia, Jasmine, (stones) Aquamarine,
chalecdony, jade, pearl, Lapis Lazuli, Moonstone, sugilite, Amethyst,
Chrysocolla, Rose Quartz, coral.

Air: (oils/herb) Bergamot, Lavender, Lemongrass, Mint, Pine,

(stones) Imperial Topaz, Citrine, Mica, Pumice, Aventurine, Clear
Quartz, Lepidolite

Fire: (oils/herb) Basil, Carnation, Cedarwood, Juniper, Calendula,
Peppermint, Cinnamon, Ginger,

(stones) Amber, Obsidian (me!), Rhodocrisite, Ruby, Larva
rock,Garnet, Jasper, Pipestone, Citrine, Beryl

(I like this idea plus it's decorative too)
