At my online shop, found at my website, I offer a variety of spell bags– bags filled with the items that you need to cast specific spells. The ones I offer include: Make Him Love Me; Money Flow; Make Him Go; Shut Your Mouth.
I’ve had several people order these spell bags and then email me, unsure as to what exactly they should do with the magickal items enclosed, so I’ve decided to post some instructions. Later I may even make small instructional videos, but I like taping these videos outdoors better than anywhere else, so the weather is going to have to warm up.
The following instructions are pretty basic and will be used with any of the spell bags.
First, let’s look at the items included in these bags: 1 small taper candle, 1 bottle of magickal oil, 1 small bag of herbs, 3 incense cones, a stone, and a small porcelain candle holder* (*not shown).
After you’ve situated yourself in a comfortable spot to work– some of you casting a circle to work in, and other’s probably opting not to do this– go ahead and light one of the incense cones.
If the herbs enclosed are not all powdered, but include leaves and whole blossoms or petals, you’ll want to begin by crushing or pulverizing them. I use a mortar and pestle for this, but if you don’t have a mortar and pestle, crush them up with your fingers. If the herbs are a bit coarser than herbs ground with a mortar and pestle, that’s okay.
Next, shake up your bottle of magickal oil and open it. You’re going to dress (anoint) your candle with the oil and then roll it in the crushed herbs. Tip the bottle up and get some oil on your fingertips. If you’re working magick to draw something to you, you will hold the candle in one hand while you stroke the oil onto the candle in gentle sweeping motions towards your body. If you’re working magick to send something away, you will hold the candle in one hand while you stroke the oil on the candle in gentle sweeping motions away from your body.
After the candle is oiled, have the herbs sprinkled out on the surface you’re working on in a long pile. Put the candle on it’s side and roll it through the herbs, several times if need be, until all or most of the herbs adhere to the candle. Place the candle in the candle holder.
Keeping your intentions in mind, light the spell candle. Allow the candle to burn down. Make sure not to leave it unattended and to keep all flammable materials out of reach of the flame.
Once this candle has burned down and the wax has cooled, you can use the large bag all of these ingredients came in to make a mojo bag. To this bag you will add the remains of the candle wax and any of the herbs which might be left over, the stone, as well as personal items/effects that will make this magick more individualized and add to the energy of your spell. These items could include hair, fingernails, or a photo of your target, a name paper, a small slip of paper upon which you’ve written affirmations, an item belonging to the target– such as a button, an earring, etc.
Keep this bag in a safe and secret place, giving the magickal energy time to build and work.
