Skogsrån (watchers of the forest) are mysterious women who guard the forest and all its creatures. Seen from the front they are unearthly beautiful, but their backs are hollow like old and rotten trees, and they often have the tail of an animal. To protect the forest, they seduce and sleep with woodcutters and then steal their souls, leaving them empty husks of their former selves.

Look what I found in Seb’s box of stuff.
Apparently his sister gave it to him.
Burke took this photo of me in our wedding bed the last day our house stood. I was crying and pulled the veil over my face. I didn’t want to let our beloved house go. Only a handful of people have ever seen this photo. It was just too personal for me to share until now.

Use tea bags to create incognito spells!
You could buy pre-made blends of herbal tea that suit your needs, then open up the tea bag and supplement it with small amounts of additional ingredients and close it back up with needle and thread or a staple. Write the spell/symbol/sigil/etc on the outside of the bag or on the little tag. Then steep and consume if you’ve used all non-toxic ingredients, or add to a bath, etc. You could even put in it a bowl and scry with the liquid and do some tasseomancy with the tea leaves later!
You could also make your own tea bags with coffee filters
or parchment paper for cooking, just fold the ingredients inside and like before, staple or sew it closed! Sewing it closed adds the extra benefit of letting you dangle your own little tag off the end of the knot you tie and using a corresponding color of thread.
Now that I think of it, if the elements are your thing, you’ve got all the elements covered in one item: the heat of the tea for fire, the steam and fragrance for air, the herbs for earth, and the water for well … water! Similarly, this could be used as an offering if you use ingredients that appeal to whoever you’re making an offering to.
This is a damn clever idea.
