Beetroot-Carrot Juice Recipe: Begin with one medium-sized beetroot and one medium-sized carrot. Ensure both are thoroughly washed and peeled. Cut them into appropriate sizes to fit into your juicer. Proceed to extract the juice from both the beetroot and the carrot using the juicer. Once you have the juice, dilute it by adding an equal volume of water. This not only makes the juice less concentrated but also enhances its hydrating properties. Finally, for a refreshing touch, chill the juice by adding a few ice cubes. Enjoy this nutritious and revitalizing beverage at your leisure.

14/2/22 By mid-August, his nose could have led him blindfolded to the places where the pollen was congregating.
14/2/23 “Zippers remind me o’ crocodiles, lobsters, and Aztec serpents. I wish me tweeds had more than the single fly… Zippers are primal and modern at the very same time. On one hand, your zipper is primitive and reptilian, on the other, mechanical and slick. A zipper is where the Industrial Revolution meets the Cubra Cult…”
14/2/24 “Now,” Marcel the Bunny was saying, “I wish to call your attention to yet another prehistoric event. About two hundred thousand years ago, the human brain tripled in size. Science has been unable to explain this relatively sudden enlargement, since beyond a certain size, a size that the brains of our ancestors had already reached two hundred thousand years ago, intelligence does not increase with brain volume. What evolutionary purpose was served, then, by tripling our cerebral real estate?”

Jvalamalini’s energy can also be present in the flaming crown, the Chaosphere. Meditating on the picture below, you can almost capture her essence, perfectly masked in the scentuality of the Jitterybug perfume oil.
On February 2022, the paths of Jvalamalini Kala and St Beetaroota had crossed and for one very special day, you could feel the rhythm of the jitterbug flowing throw the fiery garland around the nearly full moon.
St Beetaroota CE 640 – 666, was St Sexburger’s younger half-sister. St Beetaroota was born out of wedlock and unlike her sister, she spent most of her life in a tiny and very poor village in Essex, working the Beet fields. One day while in the fields weeding, she was overcome by a very strong and distinctive smell. Her head spinning, she found the source was coming from a very handsome man asleep next to a big rock in the centre of the field.
She approached him cautiously, and exclaim, oh, what a goat! Which makes him jump up onto his hooves and come towards her. The smell was so overpowering that she swoons, falling into the beets. Laying on the cold earth, Beetaroota had a vision. The god Pan appeared to her and said Join me and I will teach you the secrets of the beets.
Soon after she woke up and opened her eyes, Pan was standing above her smiling at her. Instinctively she grabbed one of the beets and held it close to her nose, immediately realizing that the scent of the beet neutralized the goatlike smell of the manbeastgod.
Now we can talk she said. Pan sat on a rock, took his pipes out and started playing the most hypnotic tune Beetaroota ever heard. The music was flowing over the field and a warm glowing haze-like substance seemed to emanate from the beet plants, everything around her seemed to slow down, the vibrant colours of the butterflies and bees covered the sunny field and a lovely and earthy aroma filled her nose and washed over her limbic system making her smile.
I understand now, she said. Pan took her hand and kissed her.
Remember, he said, the magickal essence can be collected only today and only between sunrise and sunset. This essence will provide you with the most unique ingredient for the invisibility potion, it will musk any offensive smells and unique phenomena. It is also the secret ingredient in the ancient formula of the evocation of me.
Please use it with extra caution.
He was gone.
From this day on Beetaroota’s village had produced the biggest and the healthiest beets in the country, they even supplied beets to the king. The poor little village becomes one of the wealthiest towns in the region. Beetaroota became a healer, using beets in her healing and magickal potions, people from all over the country came to seek her healing and blessings.
Every year on the 14th of February, Beetaroota woke up just before dawn and went to the field in the hope she might meet Pan again, he never showed, but every year on that day, Beetaroota’s field was covered with the magickal warm glowing haze like substance, that she collected for her healing medicines, perfumes and potions.
On February 14th CE 666, Beetaroota went just before sunrise to her field, never to be seen again. Some said she’s been seen leaving the field with a goatlike person. After her disappearance, the villagers painted the big rock in her field red and every year on the 14th of February, they left offerings of beets and flowers on the rock and around it.
