This incense formula may be used in your rituals to destroy an enemy’s power to harm you. Can also be used as an “Uncrossing Incense”.

  • 1 oz powdered Sandalwood
  • 1/2 oz powdered Bay leaves
  • 1/2 oz powdered Dill seed
  • 1 tsp Asafoetida
  • 1/4 tsp Saltpeter
  • 1 dram Uncrossing Oil
  • 2 drams of tincture of Benzoin

Powder all the solid ingredients and mix them well with your mortar and pestle. Mix all the liquid ingredients and dissolve the saltpeter in them. Slowly add the liquid ingredients to your powdered herbs. Spread in a tin pan or plastic container and allow to dry for 30 minutes to an hour.

When dry, simply crumble up and you have your incense. The traditional method of burning this type of incense is by placing it on a hot charcoal in your incense burner.

Herbs can be mixed and combined to produce a “recipe” that’s just right for each of us. Since the Sun sign you were born under has such an amazing influence on your health and well-being, using the herbs that correspond with that sign alone can be a tremendous help in times of stress or illness. Here’s a short list of herbs that seem to be tailor-made due to their associations with both the planetary ruler and the positive qualities of this sign.

  • Ginseng,
  • Dill,
  • Patchouli,
  • Pomegranate,
  • Saffron,
  • Vanilla.

Scorpio is the sign of intensity and intimacy, so it’s no wonder the herbs you’ll love best are famous for their use in stirring up passion. Drink ginseng tea (or offer some to your beloved) to induce a magnetic physical attraction. Wear patchouli to arouse lust and silently conjure the magic of the Beltane rituals. Present the object of your desire with a pomegranate, the fruit traditionally associated with seductive Pluto, your ruling planet.

  • Caraway,
  • Dill,
  • Eyebright,
  • Horehound,
  • Lily of the valley,
  • Marjoram,
  • Savory.

Virgo is a quick-thinking meticulous sign likes nothing better than a mental challenge, whether it’s organizing a pile of papers at the office, solving a puzzle, or learning a new skill. The herbs listed above are all well known for their subtle abilities to strengthen the mind, and many can be mixed together in teas to give you a boost you often need at the end of a long day. The lily of the valley seems perfect for you, too, with its subtle, “clean” scent and delicate flowers. Use these herbs in spells that bring order to chaos.

This botanical powder makes no promises about bringing good fortune but allegedly counteracts bad luck and protects from its effects. Nine, seven, and five are numbers of protection – incorporate these numbers into the quantities of botanicals used.

Blend the following ingredients, grinding them together:

  • Nine dried bay leaves crumbled
  • Frankincense
  • Juniper berries
  • Cloves
  • Dried dill
  • Dried fennel
  • Dried tarragon

Make substantial quantities. Carry some with you in a mojo bag, while keeping more within the home as fragrant, protective potpourri.

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

Add:

  • 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.
