This is an old old magickal formula – and posted here for educational and informational purposes only. Mistletoe berries are poisonous. This is the reason there will be dreams – some of them bad – some of them possibly fatal – so do not make or ingest this mixture!
Steep mistletoe berries, to the number of nine, in a mixture of ale, wine, vinegar and honey; take them on going to bed, and you will dream of your future lot. A storm in this dream is very bad; it is most likely you will then marry a sailor, who will suffer shipwreck at sea; but to see either sun, moon or stars is an excellent presage; so are flowers; but a coffin is an index of a disappointment in love.
The stuff of fairy tales, historically prized by Morocco’s witches, Moon Foam is a legendary power-substance that captures the essence of the New Moon. It can:
- Enforce a husband or lover’s fidelity
- Cure or prevent impotence
- Repair male or female fertility
- Instill mad, crazy passion for whoever uses it
Obtaining Moon Foam entails a complex ritual conducted at a cemetery at night when the moon is new. You will need a basin or pitcher of pure spring water, an oleander branch, and a bottle for the Moon Foam. This is an old old spell, and the ritual seems a little silly to our modern eyes. I have no idea if it will work or not, but here it is, just in case someone wants to try it:
Approach the cemetery gates at the New Moon and undress completely. Fill a basin or pitcher with pure spring water and place it in the light of the barely visible sliver of the new moon.
Mount an oleander branch and gallop around the perimeter of the cemetery counter-clockwise (widdershins) seven times, chanting a special incantation as you circumambulate.
- Note: The original incantation was a well kept secret and has been lost in time. So you will need to find one of your own. I would suggest The Hour of the Dark Moon, or something similar.
Ideally by now your actions have succeeded in attracting the attention of the moon’s guardian spirits. If all goes as it should, following the seventh circle around the cemetery, a lunar spirit will manifest herself to you and request that you reveal your desire. Tell her that you want Moon Foam. She will not be overly willing to give it to you.
You will have to negotiate. Make various offers; see what works. If the negotiations are successful, the moon will literally drop deep down into your water.
Eventually the water will contain visible silver foam. Strain it off carefully, like oil from water, or scum from soap. Take it home and reserve for future use.

It is said that if a human drinks from fairy wine, he or she will see fairies. If a fairy happens to drink from the same goblet, then the person will see fairies forevermore. The following is a traditional recipe for fairy wine.
- 7 lbs. elderberries, stripped and stalked
- 3 gallons boiling water
- 6 cloves
- 3 lbs. loaf sugar
- 1 lb. seedless raisins
- 1/2 oz. ground ginger
- 1/2 oz. yeast
Place the berries in a large pot, and cover with the boiling water. Let the pot rest for twenty-four hours, then mash the fruit and strain it through a jelly bag. Place the strained fruit back in the pan, and add the cloves, sugar, raisins, and ginger. Boil this mixture for one hour, skimming constantly. Let it cool, and add the yeast. Bottle and cork the mixture, and let it rest for at least three months.

- 2 oz vodka
- 1 oz triple sec
- 1 oz light rum
- fill with tonic water
- 1 dash grenadine syrup
Combine alcohol in a rocks glass over ice. Fill with tonic water, then add one dash of grenadine. Be sure the drink is served with the tonic still bubbling.

Note: I don’t see any reason why this couldn’t be used as a substitute for Holy Water when working with a Deity or Higher Power who appreciates alcohol as an offering.
This is one of the easiest projects, and was created by our 8-year-old, Willow. Take colored eggshells (she was partial to blue), and grind to a fine powder. Toss in a pinch of rose petals, and you have instant “egg fairy dust.” Of course, she thinks this powder attracts eggplant fairies, so who are we to argue? *smile*

- 10ml unscented Body Lotion
- 2 drops Lemon oil
- 1 drop Geranium oil
- 1 drop Sandalwood oil
- 20 drops Rose oil (see note below)
Blend well and massage into your hands.
Now, if you shake somebody’s hand they’ll do anything for you.
Note: Because rose oil is very expensive, you may dilute it in a carrier oil. Just be sure that the fragrance of the roses is still strong and rich.
Sweet fresh pumpkin with bright notes of apple and pineapple juice and just a dash of spice… ah, mystically delicious! A pleasant and nutritious drink. The perfect pick-me-up for all your magickal endeavors!
- PUMPKIN ~ Fertility, plenty, abundance, prosperity. Male sexual stimulant.
- APPLE ~ Love, healing, fertility, good luck , happiness, immortality, divination.
- PINEAPPLE ~ Draws money and luck, protection.
- ALLSPICE ~ Luck, health, prosperity, money.
- 1 Medium sized pumpkin
- 1 quart Apple Juice and Pineapple juice mixed (I like half and half)
How to Make Pumpkin Apple Juice:
Slice pumpkin in half, scrape and remove pulp with a big spoon. Place pumpkin halves, cut side down, on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes until soft. Let cool. Remove pumpkin pulp out of shell. Cut pulp of pumpkin into chunks and put it thru a juicer or wrap pumpkin in a cheesecloth and squeeze. Add Apple and Pineapple juice mixture. Make sure consistency is thin and juice-like (like orange juice). Add a dash of allspice (to taste). Add one to two tablespoons of honey, stirring in thoroughly. Sample juice, add more honey if it is not sweet enough for your taste. Add more allspice if it needs more flavor.
Note: Give this cocktail a nice little punch by adding Apple Vodka or Brandy.
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
- 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.
