Bottle Spells

Magic can be created from the humblest articles. This spell derives from a time when sewing, mending, and needlework were constant, everyday practices. Here’s how it works:

Keep a little jar beside you as you sew. Every time you finish a thread, toss the bit into the jar, saying something to the effect of

“Bless this house.
Protect all within from harm and hardship.”

When the jar is full, seal the blessings within by laying one protective leaf or root on top. (For example: bay laurel leaf, angelica root, bethroot, or wormwood)

Close the jar tightly and store it near the top of the house, in the attic, or hang it from the rafters.

This magic bottle spell can be worked on anyone’s name you want to sweeten. Depending on what relationship the person has to you, what special items you put into the name-packet, the color of the candle you choose, and the hoodoo oil you dress it with, this trick will cause the person you name to like you more, to love you more, to favor your petition, to want to help you, to be sympathetic to your cause, or to forgive any wrongs you have committed.

It can be used to influence and sweeten a judge in a court case, a loan officer at the bank, a boss from whom you want a raise, a teacher in your school from whom you want a good grade, a lover with whom you want a reconciliation, an in-law who has been back-biting you, or friend who has cut you off because of a foolish quarrel.

You will need:

  • a jar of sweetener
  • a piece of paper
  • a pen or pencil
  • optional herbs, curios, and/or bodily concerns
  • a candle
  • a candle-dressing oil

Get a small jar of sweetener. This can be honey, Karo Syrup, Crystal Syrup, home-made brown sugar syrup, Log Cabin Syrup, Vermont maple syrup, Bre’r Rabbit Blackstrap Molasses or whatever you desire — as long as it is in a container with a metal lid. You can buy the goods in a pint-size glass Mason jar or pour the sweetening of your choice into a jar of your own at home. All that matters is that it should be a short, squat jar with a metal lid, filled up to the shoulder of the jar.

In the old days, when skin color was a lot more important to people than it is now, it was recommended that the color of the sweetener match the skin of the person you wanted to sweeten. Thus, for a white judge, you might use Crystal Syrup, and for a Latino loan officer you might use light brown sugar syrup, and for a dark-skinned lover you might use Bre’r Rabbit Blackstrap Molasses. Frankly, these days specifying a person’s skin color is not as meaningful as it once was (for which we can all be thankful), and today many folks prefer to use honey for the spell, no matter what the target’s skin colour is, because it is a natural sweetener and not man-made. I believe that if you just follow your own intuition and decide which sweetener you like the best, you can be confident that you have made the right choice.

Next, prepare your paper.

Again, in the old days, we would be told to use white paper for a white person, tan paper for a high-brown, and rough old grocery-bag paper for a person of dark color, but these days the type of paper you use can simply be a matter of personal style. Manu people prefer the kind of cream-colored parchment paper. I often use a smooth, tan-colored light-weight shopping bag paper because that is my choice, based on the way I was taught, which was that such paper is “pure paper.”

No matter which kind of paper I use, I prepare my paper by tearing it neatly on all four sides so there is no machine-cut edge. Of course some folks trim their paper square with scissors — and the spell still works for them. So go ahead and prepare your paper just as you wish and that will suffice.

Once you have got your paper together, write the person’s name three times on it, one name under the other. For example, if the other person’s name is John Russell Brown, it would look like this:

John Russell Brown
John Russell Brown
John Russell Brown

Then rotate the paper 90 degrees clockwise and write your own name across the person’s name, also three times. If your name is Abigail Samantha Little, it would look like this:

Abigail Samantha Little
Abigail Samantha Little
Abigail Samantha Little

 

The result will be that the two names are crossed over each other, like a cross or a tic-tac-toe grid, and the other person’s name will be under yours.

This is called crossing and covering their name. If the sweetening is being done for love, you can use a red ink pen. Otherwise, the color of the ink does not matter, and you can just as easily use a pencil.

Now all around the crossed names, write your specific wish in a circle. If you need a guideline, lightly sketch the circle-shape with a pencil and then follow around it when writing with your ink pen. You must write your wish in one continuous run of script letters, with no spaces — AND WITHOUT LIFTING YOUR PEN FROM THE PAPER. Do not cross your t’s or dot your i’s. Just write the words in one run and be sure to join up the end of the last word with the beginning of the first word so the circle is complete. Then you can go back and cross your t’s and dot your i’s.

To make it easy to connect the word together at the end, I have found it best to make my petition in the form of short commands, such as “help me favor me help me favor me” or “love me love me love me” or “forgive me come back forgive me come back.”

If you make a mistake — for instance, if you lift your pen in the middle of writing your petition-circle — throw away the paper and start it all over again. You want it to be perfect.

Other Ingredients

Other ingredients can be added to the name-paper if you wish — a piece of court case root for a court case spell, two rose petals for a love spell, a lump of sugar for a family member, two clove buds for friendship, bayberry root or sassafras root for a money spell, a pair of Adam-and-Eve roots for love, two small Lodestones for sexuality, a pinch of deer’s tongue leaves for a proposal of marriage, a square of camphor for cleaning out bad things of the past, and so forth.

If you are sweetening someone for love, then in addition to the name-paper and whatever optional herbs, roots, or minerals you choose, you must also get one of the person’s hairs and one of your hairs. If the hairs are long enough, tie them together. Otherwise, just lay them crosswise to each other. In either case, place them on the name-paper.

Don’t ask me what to do if you can’t get their hairs ’cause I can’t help with that. Either work the spell without the hairs and expect a much lower rate of success or get the hairs! Don’t load the paper up with lots of other stuff thinking that if you can’t get the hairs that six different love-herbs and two lodestones will be as strong as two hairs. They won’t be.

Work the magick

Fold the paper toward you to bring what you want your way and speak aloud your wish as you do so. Turn the paper and fold it again, and again, always folding toward you, to bring what you want your way. Speak aloud your wish each time you fold the paper toward you. Fold it until it will not fold any more.

Open the jar of honey or syrup. To make room for the folded paper packet, you will need to eat some of the contents. Take out a spoon’s worth, and as you eat it, say, “As this honey [or syrup] is sweet to me, so will I become sweet to John Russell Brown [or the name of the person you are working this on].” You can do this three times — taking out three small spoonfuls of sweetener and speaking your wish aloud each time. Push the folded paper packet down into the jar and close up the lid.

Dress an offertory candle (a 6″ long candle or a 4″ long one, nothing fancy) with an appropriate anointing oil or a combination of hoodoo or conjure oils. Use a white candle for general blessing and healing, a red one for sexual love, a pink one for reconciliation, a brown one for a court case, and so forth.

Stand the candle on the lid of the closed-up jar and light it. You can melt the candle to the lid with hot wax if need be.

Let the candle burn all the way out. Do this every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, for as long as it takes. Add each new candle on top of the remains of the last one. I have seen people’s syrup-jar bottle spells like this done for court cases that were continued for so long and required so many candles that you could not see the jar under all the dripped-on wax!

This is an old hoodoo hurtful jinxing spell. These types of spells must be used with caution (if at all) because the energy created will almost inevitably rebound onto the spell caster. That being said, here it is:

Some folks obtain the intimate personal concerns of an enemy, such as hair or fingernail clippings. Mix them with black pepper, salt, red pepper, and sulfur and stop the mixture up in a bottle. It is then hidden under the enemy’s doorstep where it must be walked over. This will cause pain and sorrow to the enemy.

Here’s a simple Hoodoo War Water spell to rid yourself of an adversary:

  1. Write your adversary’s name and identifying information on a strip of brown paper.
  2. Place it in a jar and cover it with War Water.
  3. Seal it tight and hide it in a dark, secret place.
  4. Shake the jar periodically.

Once you have succeeded in ridding yourself of your adversary, pour the water and what’s left of the paper out at a crossroads far from your home. Be sure to throw the jar away.

Write your enemy’s name on paper and seal it up in a bottle with

  • Powdered Mud Dauber Dirt from nine different nests
  • Nine Needles
  • Nine Pins
  • Nine Tacks
  • Nine Red Ants

To break up a married couple, mix Mud Dauber Dirt, Red Pepper, and Black Pepper in a bottle and fill the bottle with Four Thieves Vinegar.

It is said that if you can successfully hide the bottle under the doorstep of the house, within two weeks the couple inside will be contemplating a divorce.

Note: If you decide to do this spell, just remember that what goes around comes around, and be prepared for any consequences or backlash that might come your way.

Many good fortune spells feature seaweeds like bladderwrack and agar-agar, both popularly known as Sea Spirit. Seaweeds, in general, are perceived as auspicious; other species such as kelp and dulse may be easier to obtain, along with other seaweeds associated with Japanese cuisine or nutritional supplements.

Simply place the seaweed in a jar and cover with sake or whiskey. Keep the covered jar in the kitchen to magickally attract good fortune.

Note: For this spell, seaweed may be fresh or dried, but tablets may not be substituted.

You will need:

  • Glass jar
  • Honey
  • Sugar
  • Water
  • Wooden Popsicle stick
  • Permanent Marker

Put a mixture of one third honey, water, and sugar in a glass jar with a screw top. Take wooden Popsicle stick (or equivalent), write the name of the person who is creating problems through negative thoughts or actions on one side, and the perceived source of the problem (witches, a particular person, etc.) on the other side.

Place stick in the jar and at least once a day, shake the jar vigorously. The person who is having negative thoughts will have an improved ability to relate to those persons or things he didn’t like before. “He’ll have sweet thoughts and won’t know why.”

If this person is someone who is causing you a specific problem, when you shake the jar say:

“Sweet, sweet thoughts of me, you will think, constantly.”

It is said that each time you shake the bottle, the person will think sweet thoughts of you.

Being A Witch

We should educate people that ‘Witch’ is not evil but ancient and positive. The first time I called myself a ‘Witch’ was the most magical moment of my life.
