Once upon a time, this formula was a mainstay of folk healers, who used it to treat anemia. Although its medical uses are no longer popular, this remains a very important formula.
War water is used for:
- To gain protection. This is a very aggressive, forceful, spiritual cleanser.
- To reverse a curse and send it back where it came from.
- To place a curse. War Water is a traditional and allegedly potent weapon during psychic warfare and witch wars.
War water can be used in:
- Bath spells
- Floor washes
- To splash on a door step or other target.
- It can also be added to or used in spell work for protection, cleansing, reversal spells, hex work and more.
How to make simple standard Protective War Water:
Place iron nails in a mason jar. Cut iron nails are recommended because they rust very easily, but any iron nails may be used. Add enough water to cover the nails. Leave this undisturbed until rust begins to form, typically within seven to ten days. Although the jar is usually kept shut, it should be opened periodically to encourage oxidation.
Once the rusting process begins, more water may be added. Keep the jar in a refrigerator or other cool area. Stir as needed.
You may continue adding water to the original nails virtually indefinitely. Some people have a War Water starter lasting years, akin to a sour dough starter. However, should mold or bacteria ever form, discard everything, including the jar and start again from the beginning.
How to make simple standard Malevolent War Water:
- Collect water from a fierce thunderstorm in a jar.
- Add rusty nails, sulfur, and some of your own urine.
- Store this in a cold, dry place until you need it.
This version is used to either place or reverse a hex. The rusted nails from the Protective Formula may be used to create the Malevolent version.

Mix two parts of sandalwood, patchouli leaves and myrrh, with one part of five-finger grass. Add two tablespoons of this mixture to two ounces of oil. Put a pinch of blessed salt and eight drops of household ammonia to each 1 oz bottle of oil made. Shake well before each use.
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.
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
- Juniper berries
- Dried dill
- Dried fennel

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.
