Herbal Cleansing Bottle
To make an herbal cleansing bottle, pour a layer of sand in a large clear bottle. Add layers of dried herbs, one at a time: first rosemary; then lemon peel, sage, cedar, black peppercorns, lavender, dill, bay leaf, and rowan. When the bottle is full, focus cleansing protective energy into the herbs and sand, and see a golden light radiating from the bottle. Visualize the herbs driving away negative influences. Cork and seal the bottle with white wax. Using a permanent marker, draw the Algiz rune on one side of the bottle, and on the other side draw a pentagram. Set the bottle near your front or back door, and every six months, uncap, Pour herbs out into the woods or your compost heap, and thoroughly wash and dry the bottle before filling it with a new round of herbs.
Protection from all Harm
Take a mason jar and put pins, needles, razor blades, cactus spines, rose thorns, broken glass, etc. in it. Prick your finger and let at least 3 drops of your blood into jar (this binds the jar to you). While making the bottle concentrate your thoughts on what you are doing. Urinate in the bottle and seal it well. Dig a hole and put it in it and say:
“Lord of Life, Lady of Light- Join me here for this rite
I have made this bottle for my protection
According to ancient ways and tradition.
Direct all harm sent my way – To this grave I make today.
Return it three fold to the send – And let my life ever be better
Open my ears to hear and my eyes to see, As I will, So Mote It Be!”
Ocean Wish Jar
Go to the ocean at dawn or dusk during the Waxing Moon, and bring with you:
Quill or fountain pen
Small moonstone or amethyst.
Cast your circle and sit on the sand facing the ocean. Light the candle and place your ingredients before you. On the parchment, draw a pentacle with the pen and place the amethyst or moonstone in the center of it. Focus your energy on the stone, visualizing it glowing and shining with power. When you feel ready, whisper a simple wish and sprinkle some sand over the stone, visualizing the sand absorbing your wish. Roll up the parchment and place it in the bottle, along with the stone and a small amount of sand. Release the bottle into the water and watch as the waves carry the wish away, while saying this charm:
Goddess of the Moon, the Earth, the Sea,
Each wish in Thy name must come to be.
Powers and Forces which Tides do make,
Now summon Thy waves, my spell to take.
Sit on the beach and gaze at the beautiful sea until the candle burns itself out.
Find a large bottle and stuff it with small pieces of thread of many colors (expect black). This project will probably take you many weeks, since only small pieces of thread (one to three inches in length) should be used, and east must be introduced into the bottle separately. As you add each piece of thread, say something like the following:
TANGLE THE BANE UP!
TANGLE THE BANE UP!
TANGLE THE BANE UP!
When the bottle is full, cap and place it in a window, in the attic or in a cupboard.
You will need:
paper & pen
quart jar with screw-on lid
Write your need on the paper and drop it into the jar. Take 7 dimes in your dominate hand and place them one by one into the jar. As each one drops, visualize it multiplying into huge amounts and say:
“Toward this wish, the money grows
by leaps and bounds – it overflows.
Coins that jingle, coins that shine
Come to me now – you are mine.”
Write your name on the bay leaf and drop it into the jar. Screw on the lid and place the jar where you can see it everyday, but where it is not visible to everyone who enters your home. Add a coin or two to the jar each day, and watch as money flows to you from unexpected sources. After you obtain the money you need, remove the paper and bury it outside.
Sacred Salt Jar
This is not only great to have for oneself, but it makes a nice gift to someone special if you happen to know what scents they like or stones they like. Since what you put into it is “yours”, it is like giving a part of yourself, too. This mixture is excellent to charge stones in and to “simmer energies”. Once it has blended for a few months, a pinch can be added to rituals, etc., bathwater or as a gift to Mother Earth. You can also make a “starter salt” as a gift for a friend. You can also give of your own sacred salt mixture to a special friend to help blend powers and energies when they make their own sacred salt mixture. The mixture should be made and kept in a covered stone or Earthen jar, but can be made and kept in a covered glass jar until you find one that is suitable. There are thoughts on what kind of salt to use. Some use rock salt, some Earth salt and some sea salt, some even use normal table salt. Whatever salt you use, make sure that it is “natural” and not iodized. You blend the salt with chopped or ground herbs, tiny crystals, small stones, nuts seeds, jewelry, locks of hair, ground incense and a few drops of your favorite oils, anything that you wish. Even rose petals and other flowers, or a lock of hair. When you have cleansed and charged stones and crystals by sun and Moon, place them in this mixture to store until you wish to use them or give them as gifts.
Making a Witches Bottle
First select the Bottle you want to use. Your bottle maybe clear or tinted. If you’re working with a colored bottle, choose a color that suits what you are doing. Tinted bottles are great for spells that use color correspondences. Once you have a bottle, wash it with warm soapy water, or cleanse it in the ocean. After you have washed it, magically cleanse it and bathe it in the light of the full moon. When the bottle is clean it is time to fill it. There are a lot of options when it comes to contents, here are a few examples: For Protection from unfriendly forces, you can fill the bottle with very sharp objects such as nails, pins, safety pins, & needles, or sand. By collecting herbs, resins, leaves, roots, and spices and filling a bottle with them, you can concoct a wide variety of Wards, Spells, or Talismans. Add a base oil or cider vinegar and you have wonderful gifts for your friends, these would enhance their magical life as well as their cooking! You can also fill the bottle with a variety of flower petals selected for their healing properties, attributes, or correspondences to planetary or other forces. You may want to include a bit of alcohol, vinegar, or olive oil to preserve the flowers.
