Here we have a tried and true invisibility powder for when you don’t want to be seen. For best results, this powder should be created at night during the Dark Moon.
In a mortar and pestle, grind together:
- 1 part Fern leaf, dried
- 1 part Poppy seeds
- 2 parts Slippery Elm powder
- 1 part Myrrh
- 1 part Marjoram, dried
- 3 parts Dillweed, fresh if possible
Grind all together, mixing well. Add 9 drops almond tincture (almond cooking extract is great.) with enough spring water to make everything barely moist, and mix in well.
Place in a ceramic bowl, spreading as thinly as possible, and dry the mixture over low heat, stirring it occasionally, until it seems lightly browned. Pour back into mortar, and grind again, enchanting:
Things Seen, and Things Not Seen:
Let me walk here in between.
When finely powdered, store in a clear glass container. It will keep its power for years. Sprinkle, just a little bit, on yourself, objects, or in a place to be made invisible.

- 4 parts Rosemary
- 3 parts Juniper
- 2 parts Bay
- 1 part Mugwort
Once you’ve gathered the ingredients, put them in a large mixing bowl and mix with your hands. Place a handful or so in a large square of muslin or other porous fabric and tie up the ends. Add this to your bath. To save time, make several bath sachets and store them in a jar with a tight lid until needed.
If you prefer showers to a bath, simply tie the herbs in a washcloth and scrub yourself with the mixture after your regular shower and before toweling.
