Fill one jar with equal parts of the following herbs and spices:
- Cinnamon [swift results]
- Nutmeg [psychic power]
- Allspice [success]
- Ginger [energy]
- Basil [strength]
- Fennel seeds [creativity]
- Garlic [spiritual purification]
- Marjoram [love and happiness]
- Sage [clear out negativity]
- Cloves [command and compel]
- Mustard seed [faith]
Before you do any magical or psychic work, inhale the scent deeply and then shake the jar gently.
You can use the aromatic properties of spices to enhance your powers mentally.
Fill a jar with equal parts of the following spices. This will make an all purpose mental power scent jar.
- Cinnamon: For dream magick.
- Nutmeg: For good luck.
- Allspice: For healing.
- Ginger: For lunar magick.
- Basil: For protection.
- Fennel seeds: For spiritual healing.
- Garlic powder: For spiritual purification.
- Marjoram: For protection.
Before scrying, readings, or other psychic work, shake the jar gently and then inhale the scent to enhance your mental powers.
You can also make individual spice jars for specific spells and magickal workings. Or the spices can be combined for special purposes. For example, combine Cinnamon, Fennel, and Ginger for New or Full Moon spells for healing dreams.
The jar is best stored in a private place among your other magickal tools. Your jar should not be revealed to others.
It will last about one year, at which time, you should dispose of the spices by burying them before creating a new mental enhancement jar. Bury the spices on your own property if possible, either that or some beautiful wild place.
Wash the jar with lots of soap and water, and allow it to sit in the sunshine for several days. Now it’s ready to be refilled.
Herbal powders have long been used to improve the quality of a person’s life. Here is one herbal potion that will make you prosperous. Take equal amounts of ground cloves, cinnamon, mustard seed, and ginger and grind in a mortar and pestle to a fine powder. Visualize the mixture drawing wealth to you as you work.
Sprinkle some of the powder around your home. Toss it in corners. Add some to the change in your wallet and any other place you stash money. Make some up into sachets and tuck into drawers or add to baskets where you keep your mail and bills. Be creative in how you use the powder, and money will find you in creative ways.
- 7 drops Palmarosa
- 5 drops Ylang-ylang
- 1 drop Ginger
- 2 drops Rosemary
- 1 drop Cardamom
Wear to draw love. Anoint pink candles and burn while visualizing.
Herbs can be mixed and combined to produce a “recipe” that’s just right for each of us. Since the Sun sign you were born under has such an amazing influence on your health and well-being, using the herbs that correspond with that sign alone can be a tremendous help in times of stress or illness. Here’s a short list of herbs that seem to be tailor-made due to their associations with both the planetary ruler and the positive qualities of this sign.
It’s no secret that Aries is the astrological equivalent of a bullet. It’s a red-hot burst of energy that’s capable of overcoming any obstacle by charging straight for it. The ruler of Aries is Mars, the “red” planet, the ancient god of war who was known for his equally fiery temperament. No wonder, then, the herbs that correspond with your sign are also a bit “hot” to the taste. Use them in cooking to raise your endorphins, the substance Mars loves best. Use them for spells to invoke that Mars energy.
Here are some simple spells which use ingredients found in any supermarket.
- Chocolate is excellent for money.
- Spinach can help you get a job.
- Bitter foods will make you work harder, sweet foods will ease the pressure on a workaholic (try honey, not junk food).
- Apples are sacred to Aphrodite, so cut one in half and give it to your lover to enrapture them.
- Get the one you want out of your life out of it by serving them a bowl of turnips. They’ll leave you – you won’t have to do a thing.
- Ginger tea, or bathing with ginger will relieve stress.
- Oats in a sock, popped in the bath, promotes gentleness and soft beauty.
Add the following ingredients to 1/8 cup of jojoba oil. As you mix the oils, inhale the aroma and visualize the intended purpose for the blend. For best results, use therapeutic grade organic oils instead of synthetics.
- 3 drops Frankincense
- 1 drop Ginger
- 1 drop Black Pepper
- 1 drop Petitgrain
You can wear Aries oil when the moon is in Aries, and also when the Sun is in Aries. If you are a Aries, wear the blend to increase your personal power.
