We spend this episode talking about amulets and talismans. How do they work? Which ones do we like using? And which ones do we really want to try out in the future? Lots of good discussion this time around!

One thought on “Episode 90 – Amulets and Talismans”
Hello there ! I hope the two of you are doing well. I first wanted to thank you for creating this podcast ; every episode is of great help and inspiration.
In the beginning of this episode, you came to the conclusion that living beings could not be amulets and/or talismans. Does it include plants ?
Your point about tattoos was extremely interesting ; it is actually a thing. A friend of mine designs these kinds of tattoo with great care (and talent, in my opinion !) so you might want to check it out ! His blog is : http://sensdessirenes.tumblr.com
Thank you again and have an excellent day !
