A book of Anglo-Saxon charms advised the crumbling of the Lammas loaf into four pieces and the burying of them in the four corners of the barn to make it safe for all the grain that would be stored there. You can also use this old spellcraft in a protection spell for your home.
Bake a Lammas loaf, and when it is cool break it into four pieces – don’t cut it with a knife – and take one to each corner of your property with the words:
I call on the spirits
Of north, and south, east and west
Protect this place.
Leave the bread for the birds to eat or bury the pieces.

War Water, also known as Water of Mars, draws on the power of iron. Although it’s most famously used to send notorious and powerful hexes, War Water also creates a powerful, protective shield that repels danger of all kinds. War water is easy to make, here’s a recipe: War Water
Before you initiate the bath, first cleanse the home with War Water, especially the room in which you will bathe.
- Add War Water to the bath water.
- Immerse yourself completely three times.
- Drain the water and allow yourself to air dry.
- As an optional extra, add seven or nine bay leaves to the bath.
War Water causes hexes but it also repels and removes them. Here’s a simple way to use it:
Add War Water to your bathwater. Light a white candle. As you soak, focus on the idea that the water is cleansing you and forming a protective barrier that no negative energy can penetrate. When you finish with the bath, visualize any negative energy that might have been attached to you, flowing down the drain. Dry yourself with a white towel.
War Water is not difficult to make, here’s a link to a simple recipe: War Water
by Madame Fortuna
- Moon Phase: any
- Prep: ground and center (emergency use only!)
- Tools: sword or wand, silver or dark blue glitter
- Color: silver or deep blue
- Herb: broom or frankincense
- Elements: water and air
- Crystal: hematite
- Reason: when a major storm is approaching
Take some frankincense and a hematite stone, place them on a pentacle you’ve drawn on the ground (with your sword or wand). Place the tool of your choice in the middle of the pentacle and while holding the stone in your hand say:
Morrigan goddess of the storm
I ask for your help in every form,
turn it back into the sea,
absorb it into the rock into the tree,
send this storm far from me.
And if my Goddess does agree
than manifest please make it be!
Than take the silver or deep blue glitter and sprinkle it around the perimeter of the pentacle and let some fall off of your hand into the wind. Leave the stone as an offering to the elements and the Goddess.
Please Note: that if the storm does not come to your back yard it will go to someone else’s, try not to deplete your land of anything it needs just for the sake of seeing if you can do it. The Goddess is ever watching…our beautiful mother, blessed be
If you are feeling uneasy, nervous or threatened, try repeating this chant quietly to yourself.
“Divine Goddess, Goddess Divine,
Divine God, God Divine,
If evil dwells within this place,
Please make it leave my space”

If there’s one presence you’d want to have on your side in the courtroom, in a dark alley, or at any time you feel threatened, it’s the Archangel Michael. Michael’s celestial mission is to be humanity’s defender. He epitomizes justice. You can request that he come to your assistance.
Post his image, burn fragrant gum resins and use his invocation to call him:
Michael to the right of me,
Michael to the left of me
Michael above me
Michael below me
Michael within me
Michael all around me
Michael with your flaming sward of cobalt blue, protect me today!
From an ancient Chaldean Magical Tablet we have this incantation against the entrance of Demons (and other bad spirits) into the house.
boundary that cannot be taken away,
boundary that the Gods cannot pass,
which is opposed to malevolence!
Whether it be a wicked Utuq,
a wicked Alal,
a wicked Gigim,
a wicked god,
a wicked Maskim,
a phantom, a spectre,
may the barrier of the god Ea stop him!
Note: This spell can be enhanced if used in conjunction with protective herbs and/or salt spread across the threshold and window sills, and also if protective symbols (such as the one shown here) or runes are written or drawn on doors and windows.
This is a hoodoo spell to keep bill collectors and police officers away. Here’s how it works:
Empty a black hen’s egg, crack up the shell, and toast it in your oven until it turns brown. Powder it, then put the powder under your front doorsteps. The collectors or officers may come around, but they will not be able to do anything to harm you.
