Brownies live in England and Scotland (Urisks), and are solitary faeries. They are one to two feet tall, with brown, wizened faces and hair that grows all over their body like teddy bears. They usually go naked but occasionally wear hooded brown cloaks. Brownies come out at night to do the chores when everyone is asleep, and are gone by the first cock call. They take care of the household pets, do unfinished jobs such as mowing; threshing; milking; shearing; tending the pets, livestock, and farm animals; shoe making; sewing; and cleaning.
Brownies can bring good fortune to your family provided you treat them well. Give them food and drink such as milk and cookies to win their favors, but never give them gifts or wages. To encourage a helpful brownie to come to your home, cast this spell tonight.
You will need a broom, a glass of milk, and a plate of cookies.
Before you go to sleep, sweep your front doorway and back doorway clean. Also sweep your fireplace or woodstove hearth clean if you have one. Put the glass of milk and cookies on the counter or table in your kitchen. Say:
I offer this milk and these cookies
to the kind and helpful brownies
who may grace my home tonight.
As you drift to sleep, repeat over and over:
May the kind and helpful brownies
grace my dreams and my home tonight.
In the morning, write everything you recall from your dreams in your journal. Return any remaining milk and cookies to the earth as an offering to the brownies. As you do, say:
Thank you, kind brownies.
May you always be blessed!
