Juniper

mortar-and-pestle_000

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
  • Frankincense
  • Juniper berries
  • Cloves
  • Dried dill
  • Dried fennel
  • Dried tarragon

Make substantial quantities. Carry some with you in a mojo bag, while keeping more within the home as fragrant, protective potpourri.

  • 4 parts Rosemary
  • 3 parts Juniper
  • 2 parts Bay
  • 1 part Mugwort

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.
