This magical wash is thought to make your wishes come true.
- 1 tablespoon sage
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 1 tablespoon sandalwood
Combine all the ingredients in a pan, empowering them one by one. Bring to a boil and boil for three minutes. Add the mixture to cold wash water, and bless it saying:
My wishes will come to me,
to take care of myself and my family.
With harm to none and good will to all,
Mother mine hear my call.
Bring these desired goals to me,

As you do the washing – floors, front door, porch steps, windows, etc… focus on what it is that you are wishing for.

Combine the following ingredients, empowering them one by one by stating aloud the specific function each will perform.
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon (victory, success, to win favor of the Gods)
- 5 cloves (command and compel)
- 1 tablespoon orange zest (symbolizing gold and prosperity)
- 1 teaspoon ginger (luck)
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg ((luck)
- 3 drops pine essential oil (ward off negativity)
Bless the ingredients on your altar. Let the mixture rest in a dark area for a week. Take it out once a day, shake it, and then return it.
If possible, charge this potion under a full moon during its week of rest, to magnify the magical properties it contains. (The power of a full moon is present for three days before and three days after the actual night of the full moon.) After a week, add the mixture to a bucket of warm, clear water for washing.
A floorwash technically refers to the final rinse used to clean a floor or other interior surfaces. It should not be removed but allowed to air-dry, so that its power radiates into the surrounding atmosphere. In other words, the floor should be clean before applying the floor wash.
Traditional methods call for you to scrub the floor on your hands and knees. The repetitive motion and low concentration level needed allow for a shift in consciousness to take place. Incorporating a chant as you wash will boost the powers of the wash and help your goal to manifest even faster. Remember to be as specific as possible in the wording of your chant.
- Important note:
This wash seems to have the side effect of making those who come into contact with it hungry. It smells wonderful.

War Water, which draws upon the power of iron, is notoriously used to cast potent hexes. However, what characterizes this Water of Mars is not malevolence but aggressive power. How that power is directed is determined by the spell caster. War water is also used to remove hexes and for basic but potent spiritual protection.
War Water is easy to make. The recipe can be found at the Magickal Apothecary.
Wash all thresholds, doorways, and gateways to the outside with War Water to set up the front line against all evil.
Boil nails or pins in a pan filled with War Water. Allow it to cool, remove the solids (the goal is not to create a literal mine field) and sprinkle the water as a magickal boundary of protection around the perimeter of your home.
To return a bad spell, boil pins or nails in War Water. Allow it to cool, strain out the solid material and throw the liquid at your target’s home, front door, or driveway.
A simple recipe for War Water can be found here: Magickal Apothecary
- 1 tsp. of rose water
- 3 tbsp. sea salt or Kosher salt
- 1 small bowl of spring water
- 1 clean glass container
- 1 new compact mirror
- 1 small storage glass bottle (green or blue)
You can buy the bottled water as long as you know that it’s really spring water. But it’s best if you get the water from a running stream or other “live” body of water that you know the water is clean.
Before the Rite:
Cleanse and sterilize the bowl and the glass container with boiling water.
Time and Place:
Midnight during a Full Moon phase. Out of doors under the moon, or near a window that will reflect the light of the moon.
Set out your work cloth and all ingredients upon it. Take five or six deep breaths to relieve the stress of the day. Ground and center. Cast your magick circle in whatever way is familiar to you. Hold your arms outstretched in the Goddess position (arms out at the sides like you’re cradling the Universe, palms up). Say:
In the cloak of the midnight hour
I call upon the Ancient Power
I seek the presence of the Lady and Lord
To bless this water that I will pour.
At this point, you should feel the energy of Earth Mother and Skyfather move abut your feet and head. Feel your own energy expand around your navel and then unite with Divinity. Take your time; no need to rush.
Pour the rose water into the bowl of spring water. Pick up the bowl of water, hold it toward the light of the Moon, and say:
In my hands I hold the essence of the Goddess.
I hereby cleanse and consecrate this water to Divinity
that it may be used for positive acts only
and may aid me in my magickal works.
Feel the energy of the Moon Goddess pulsate down into the water. Imagine her silver light descending from the heavens and impregnating both the water and yourself. You will feel a “glowy” sensation. Set the water down and pick up the salt. Feel the power moving in your arms as you raise the salt toward the moon. Say:
In my hands I hold the essence of Earth Mother,
She whose bounty sustains all living creatures.
I hereby consecrate this salt to Divinity
that it may be used for positive acts only
and may aid me in my magickal work.
As with the water, imagine the energy of the Moon Goddess empowering the salt.
Set the salt down and pour a little into the bowl of water, and stir clockwise three times. Repeat this process twice more. With the bowl in your left hand (receiving) and the mirror in your right (sending), reflect the light of the moon off the mirror and into the bowl. After a few moments say:
This liquid is now pure and dedicated to the Lord and Lady.
It is free from all negativity in any time and any space.
Set the bowl and mirror down and hold out both of your hands, palms down, over (not touching) the bowl, about one inch above the water.
Let the vibrations of your body come alive. Open your third eye chakra and imagine a glowing purple light emanating from it. Form and open triangle with your hands over the water and project the light into it. In your mind, see the water change color and glow. Feel the power and energy flow from your head down through your arms and up from your feet and out from your arms simultaneously. When you feel the energy begin to dissipate, slowly lower your hands and say:
As I will
So mote it be
With the free will of all
And harm to none
This formula is done!
You may ground your energy in two ways. Either place your hands physically upon the ground and feel the energy drain into Earth Mother, or imagine your energy as a force field around you, and quietly step back out of the skeleton of energy and watch it collapse in upon itself and melt into the ground.
Transfer the water to your storage container and store it away until you are ready to cleanse and concencrate your sacred space. Be sure to clean up after yourself by putting all things away in their designated places so that you will be able to find them again next when they’re needed.

Early in the morning, mix the following ingredients into a bucket of water:
- A tablespoon of powdered Allspice
- A teaspoon of Saltpeter
- Half cup of Sugar
Mop with this from the sidewalk toward the front door, then in the door, through the store, and all the way to the back of the building.
