Secret to Keeping
These Dark Arts secrets were previously not known outside of family and Creepy Hollows collectors. They are secrets discovered by Ash and he has generously agreed to share them with all collectors because having the right secret and being able to properly handle DA spirits is more important.
Caring for your Sylvan is the same as caring for any other spirit except being a creature of duality. They are not fond of chemical scents. Place the vessel near something wiped with cleansing products. Only use this technique if you feel your Sylvan is becoming too strong for your liking- some collectors like their spirits to be "on the go" all the time so it is your judgment call.Tags: elemental spirit, forest spirit, sylvan
