Witches Protection Bottle

Get a glass jar such as a Mason jar, or even a baby food jar, anything that has a lid to it. Fill the jar halfway with small sharp objects such as pins, metal scrapings, broken glass, razor blades, etc. Be careful when you are filling the jar! Once the jar is half full with these objects, fill the jar up with a holy water mixture of salt and water. Put the top on the jar and be sure it's secured. This jar should be buried in the ground at least twelve inches deep. As long as the bottle remains in the ground, you will be protected from harm that is sent your way. If you bury the jar somewhere away from home, and you wont know if it will still be there in a year (City Witches don't always have backyards), then be sure to repeat this process each year.

House Protection Spell

1 glass bottle or jar with cap mixing bowl funnel (you can make one with a rolled up piece of paper) 9 herbs of choice from list: (Acacia, Aloe, Angelica, Anise, Ash, Basil, Birch, Blackberry, Blueberry, Broom, Caraway, Carnation, Cedar, Cinquefoil, Clover, Cotton, Cypress, Dill, Eucalyptus, Fennel, Flax, Foxglove, Grass, Hazel, Heather, Holly, Irish Moss, Ivy, Lilac, Mandrake, Marigold, Mistletoe, Mugwort, Mulberry, Oak, Olive, Pine, Primrose, Raspberry, Rice, Rose, Rosemary, Sandalwood, Spanish Moss, Thistle, Valerian, Violet, Willow) Pour the nine selected herbs into the mixing bowl one by one. As you pour each one in say these words (replace the blank with the name of the herb):
"________ that protects, protect my home and all within."
Once all of the herbs have been added to the bowl, mix them with your hands. Visualize you home being safe and secure as you mix. Cap the bottle or jar and bury it outside, in front of your front step. If you live in an apartment or other place that would prevent you from doing this, place the jar some where out of view but still near your doorway.

Stop a troublemaker

Write the name of the person on a piece of parchment/paper, fold it twice. Take a lime and cut it twice, once diagonally and once horizontally, but don't cut it all the way into four pieces. Place the paper or parchment inside the lime and hold it together with two long steel nails. Place the lime into a clean glass jar and put
into it some ash, salt and vinegar and screw the lid on tight. The ash and salt are supposed to thwart their efforts to cause you trouble of any kind, and the vinegar and lime should sour their own affairs at the same time. Let the candles burn themselves out safely. Place this jar in a place where no one will disturb it. Bury it if you must. I prefer to keep it on my altar (no one has any idea what it is) and send my energy to it regularly.






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.

Bottle Binding Spell

This spell is for binding a violent or dangerous person from doing harm. Photo of person to be bound OR a piece of white parchment paper with their whole name written on it in black ink or dove's blood ink. 18 inches or so of black silken cord or black thick string, like embroidery floss. A small glass jar w/ cork lid. A small white candle A small black candle Light both your candles. Write the name on the paper or take the photograph in hand. Fold the paper or photo into as small a rectangle as possible. Take the cord in hand and begin to wind it around the rectangle, for a total of nine loops, saying aloud in a clear, strong voice:
I (insert your name here), bind thee (insert name of offending person here) from causing harm to (insert name of victim here), from exerting control over this person, from influencing this person. I bind you from making further plans with this person. I call upon the angels, Auriel, Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael (or any other guides or deities you prefer.) to assist me in this righteous cause! As I will, so mote it be.

Place the paper into the jar. Urinate into the jar & cork. Seal all around the cork with the black candle wax.

Protection Charm

If you feel in danger or threatened, prepare this charm. Fill one jar small enough to carry with you with fennel seeds, marigold, bay leaves, nutmeg and mustard seed. Whenever you feel threatened, inhale the charm deeply. You will be protected. A Word Of Caution: This charm doesn't exactly smell like a spring breeze.

Protection Bottle

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:
When the bottle is full, cap and place it in a window, in the attic or in a cupboard.






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!"

Luck Jar

If you are unlucky enough to break a mirror, collect all the pieces, put in a glass jar and stand on you window sill, the shards deflect all the bad luck away from the house.

Ocean Wish Jar

Go to the ocean at dawn or dusk during the Waxing Moon, and bring with you: - Small bottle Parchment Quill or fountain pen Blue candle 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.

Inspiration Jar

Purpose: To bring on inspiration. For creativity. Ingredients: Mason jar Small crystal Dried orange peels (two-thirds) Dried mint (one-third) 2 drops orange essential oil 1 drop mint essential oil Square piece of black cotton fabric Rubber band Orange fabric paint or orange acrylic Orange ribbon Note: The color orange is the color of creative energies. The shading (how dark or light the orange is) that you use will denote the level of creative energies you wish to channel. A dark orange will take you deep into the creative energies while a light orange is less intense. Moon cycle: No moon cycle is selected for this spell because all phases of the moon hold different levels of creative energies, including the dark moon. If you follow moon phases, choose the cycle that fits your purpose best. Gather ingredients. With a clean and dry jar before you, place the mint first and then the orange peels inside, filling it up about two-thirds of the way. Add two drops of orange essential oil and one drop mint essential oil. More if you are using a large mason jar. Stir ingredients together. Take the small crystal in your hand and say something such as:
"Creativity Come to me
In whispers and dreams
And visions that gleam."
Place the crystal inside the jar with the potpourri. For the lid, cover the opening of the jar with black fabric so that the side of the fabric hangs down over the edges about 2 inches. With a pencil, mark the center top of the fabric. Take the fabric off the jar, lie it flat on a hard surface. Using orange paint, acrylic or fabric paint, paint on a spiral. While the paint is drying, cover the jar temporarily with a lid so that it doesn't get spilled. Spiral: The spiral is a symbol of the dance of life. It shows the continuous cycle of ourselves going inward (within ourselves/our psyche) and then going outward (expressing ourselves). Black: The black fabric in this spell is used as an absorption color. Black absorbs all colors, all energies. By placing the orange spiral on this we are signifying just what those energies are that the black is absorbing, all creative energies. Once the paint is dry, place the fabric on the jar once again. The spiral should now be on the centered top of the jar's mouth. Holding the fabric in place, wrap the rubber band around the sides to hold it in place. Next, tie the orange ribbon overtop of the rubber band. Keep this inspiration jar in your work area, where you do your writing, painting, drawing, or keep it by your bed to bring on inspiring dreams.

Money Jar

-- paper & pen seven dimes quart jar with screw-on lid bay leaf 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.

Good Luck Herb Jar

To attract good fortune into your life or change a streak of bad luck to good, fill a small jar (leaving a bit of space) with any combination of the following magical herbs: buckthorn bark, chamomile, clover, dandelion, frankincense, heal - all, honeysuckle, huckleberry leaves, Irish moss, Job's tears, John the Conqueror, khus -khus, lotus, lucky hand root, mistletoe, myrrh, nutmeg, rose hips, rosemary, sandalwood, spearmint, star anise, thyme, Tonka bean. Seal your jar tightly and keep it in your kitchen on a shelf or a windowsill. Place your hands upon the jar each morning upon rising, and say :
To God and Goddess I do pray
Guide me through another day
Let good fortune come my way
Good luck hither now I say

After reciting the magical incantation, gently shake the jar a few times and then kiss it before putting it back. I suggest using the same jar for a maximum of 13 days, then return the herbs to the Earth and repeat if necessary.

Fortuna Good Luck Spell

Things you need:-good luck petition-good luck oil-green candles-a piece of green paper-a small jar Good Luck Petition:-wormwood-pine needles-dandelion-honeysuckle-myrrh- thyme-rose.

THE Bottle Spell

This spell can be used to neutralize the power of those who intend to hurt your reputation, in any way pose a threat to your security, or who want to do you physical harm. --black thread black ink or black ballpoint pin parchment paper --1 bottle with a cork or mortar and pestle 1 white candle --4 tablespoons orris-root (or oak moss) 4 tablespoons sea salt --4 tablespoons black powdered iron (available at pottery shops where ironstone is made) --4 tablespoons frankincense or myrrh
Mix the sea salt, orris-root powder, and iron in a bowl. Then cut a piece of parchment to fit inside your bottle and write on it in black ink: "I neutralize the power of [name of your adversary] to do me any harm. I ask that this be correct and for the good of all. So mote it be."
Roll up the parchment, tie it with black thread to bind it, and place it in the bottle. Fill the bottle with the dry ingredients. Then take the white candle and, while turning the bottle counter clockwise, drip wax over the cork to seal it. Last, secretly bury the bottle in a place where it will not be disturbed and no animal or person will dig it up. It should never be opened or the power of the spell is lost.





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.

Trap an Evil Spirit (in jar)

This traps an evil entity or evil spirits and prevents any harm being done. --Salt water - 1 part Sea salt to 8 parts of spring water. --1 dried Rose 13 Rose Thorns 1 Small Glass Jar + a tightly fitting
lid. Put the Rose Thorns into the jar one at a time and as you do this and drop one in, chant the following words each time:
"Thou Demon presence. Be no more!"
Crush up the Thorns in the jar and then crush up the Rose petals and add them to the jar, slowly add the salt water. Keep the jar open overnight. The next morning before the sunrise close the lid. All the evil should now be trapped inside the jar. Cover the jar with a cloth and bury it far away from the house in a place that has no buildings nearby.

Bring Lust or Love to Relationship

Get a small bottle with a lid, you can cleanse it and consecrate it if you wish. Either write the name of you and your lover or your symbols on a piece of paper, then put the paper inside the bottle so the side with the writing on is facing outwards. Grind up some herbs that are used in love or lust charms. Love- rose petals, jasmine flowers, lavender, orisis root. Lust - ginger, cloves, cinnamon, caraway. Whilst you are grinding them up visualize you and your partner (or future partner) being deeply in lust or happy and in love, you could also say something while doing this like:
"herbs of the earth herbs of lust bring me passion in you I trust"
Then put them into the bottle - Then add drops of essential oils used for love or lust. love- rose, rosemary, ylang ylang. Lust- patchouli, cinnamon, ylang ylang, orange. Fill the bottle with oil almost to the top. Get a candle (preferably pink or red) and drip wax into the bottle until it is about to overflow and then put the lid on the bottle while the wax is still molten. This seals the spell. Sit and mediate for a while and do whatever you normally do to 'charge up' your charms. Imagine the bottle glowing with a pink or red light. You can carry or wear the bottle or you could bury or hang it up somewhere special to you and in the future if you no longer require lust or love between you and your partner, then smash the bottle and bury it somewhere far away.

Spell of the Witch's Bottle

1 jar - 1 red cloth cut into the shape of a heart some of your own hair clippings - some of your own nail clippings - 13 iron nails - 13 black-headed pins - 1 cup of sea salt. The making of the witch's bottle is very simple and should be done as early on in your practices as you possibly can. Never let another person know that you are making the bottle, or it's location. Place all of the items on your altar and take a few minutes to meditate on magical rotection, for your safety. Take up your hair and nail clippings and place them into the jar saying:
"Here do I present myself"
Take up the 13 iron nails and place them into the jar saying:
"Here are my swords of protection"
Take up the salt and place it into the jar saying:
"Here is salt to purify me"
Take up the red heart-shaped cloth. Hold it high and say:
"Here is the heart of any who wish me harm"
Stick all 13 black-headed pins into the cloth heart and say:
"Let any who wish me harm or any who wish me ill, feel the pain of their own heart's hate, rebounded by this witch's will"
Place the pin-studded heart into the jar. Next fill the jar with your own urine. This sounds revolting, but urine is a powerful fluid-condenser, and by doing this is symbolic of saying that you think any spell which is cast against you is a useless and worthless gesture, and this is the frame of mind you should take while performing this act. When the jar is filled, or at least halfway so, cork it up with a red tapered candle. Light the candle and as it turns, it will drip wax to seal the bottle. Take it out and bury it somewhere near your home. Say the following:
"Blessed Mother of the Darkened Moon, I pray that you grant me this boon. A bottle of protection do I bury here: to protect me from those both far and near. May any curse or magic spell placed on me, be dispelled. Rebounded on the sender be, In accordance with the Law of Three."
Once the bottle is buried, it should never be dug up again. To do so would be to release all of the negativity that it has absorbed for you. If another person digs up the bottle, it will not affect them, as it is designed to absorb negativity aimed directly to you. This energy is tied to you and you alone. It cannot affect another person. Do not dig up the witch-bottle for any reason. If you move to a new location, the witch-bottle will continue to work for you. The witch's bottle is buried in the earth so that the earth may ground the energies of the negativity directed towards you. One bottle should be all that is needed.




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.

Planet Protection

This is protection spell that actually calls upon the all the great celestial bodies in a solar system so this is pretty powerful spell. Items needed: 11 small jars - Permanent marker Barley, Sage, Garlic, Parsley, Rosemary, Ailanthus, Rose petals, Seaweed or any water plant, Silverweed, Weeping Willow, Moonwort It doesn't matter if these herbs are dried, powdered or fresh. First take your eleven jars and label each one with the name of a planet, including the Earth, Moon and Sun. Then draw the symbols of each planet on the jars as well making sure your symbol matches the planet. Next fill each jar about half way with warm water. Then find the jar labeled Sun and add your rosemary; take your Mercury jar and add parsley; Take your Venus jar and add the rose petals; take your Earth jar and add your barley; Take your Mars jar and add your garlic; take your Jupiter jar and add your sage; Take your Saturn jar and add your weeping willow; take your Uranus jar and add your ailanthus; Take your Neptune jar and add your water plant and take your Pluto jar and add the Silverweed and take your Moon jar and add your Moonwort. Close the jars very tightly the put the jars in straight row and chant:
"I invoke the god of these planets:
Apollo, Hermes, Aphrodite, Gaia, Diana, Aries, Zeus, Uranus, Saturn, Poseidon, Hades lend me your power of your world for protection."
Visualize that each planet is in those jars and giving off positive protecting energy. After that let them sit out for a night. The next day find a place either in your back yard or garden to bury them. Keep close to your house. If you live in an apartment or just don't have a place to bury them, store the jars in the back of closet or in
cabinet that is not used often. The jars will begin to collect the energy of the planets each nightfall. Give it some to time to work. Don't try to rush it, the longer the jars are not disturbed the stronger the protection shield will be around your home and your family.

Busy as a Bee (money spell)

This spell should be performed on a waxing moon. You will need: your business card, a pen, cotton wool, 30 cm of red ribbon, a glass bottle, honey. Visualize yourself happy and working and say:
"My life and accounts shall soon be in balance"
Draw a bee on the back of your business card, buzzing from flower to flower. Lay it on the cotton wool. Roll into a cylinder, wrap it around with the ribbon saying:
"My life and accounts shall soon be in balance"
Place the scroll into the bottle, fill it with honey, replace the stopper, saying:
"My life and accounts shall soon be in balance"
Plant an oak tree and bury the bottle under it, or place the bottle
into the freezer. Every evening in the waxing moon water the tree, or turn the bottle clockwise repeating the above.
