Bat’s blood ink is one magickal ink that you should use carefully. This ink has been used to write spells of misfortune, havoc, and putting hexes. But being the good witch that you are, you can use bat’s blood ink to protect yourself from hexes. Plus you can use it to undo jinxes that have found their way into your life.
Be very careful with using bat’s blood ink for negative purposes since that can easily backfire. To make the ink you will need the following:
- 2gr Dragon’s Blood resin
- 1gr Myrrh resin
- 1gr Gum Arabic
- 12ml Alcohol
- ½ cup water
- Dark red coloring – optional, to make the ink darker and better for writing.
Ground the resins and the gum to a fine powder. Then, boil about half a cup of water. Lower the fire and pure the gum Arabic in the water. Stir until the gum is fully diluted. Then put in the rest of the resins and keep stirring until you have a honey-like paste.
Then take the mix out of fire, let it cool down to approximately 60oC (140oF) and add the alcohol. If you are using coloring, add it now. Stir until it becomes an homogeneous liquid. This is your Bat’s Blood Ink.
Depending on how finely you have ground the ingredients and how much water remains in the paste, you may need a little more or less alcohol to end up with a proper liquid. But whatever the case, the ink will work.
How to use Bat’s Blood Ink to remove problems and obstacles:
Light a fire in your cauldron and infuse it with purifying power. To do so, chant “Hum” or “Ksham” 108 times over the fire. Of course, always take all fire safety measures when using fire.
Add to your Bat’s Blood Ink a few drops of a Banishing or Uncrossing magical oil. Do not substitute with a Road Opener, Block Buster, or Success Oil. With this oil empowered ink, write on pieces of paper your problems and obstacles. Do not, under no circumstances, write people’s names. Only situations.
Then throw the papers into the purifying fire and let them burn to ashes. Even better, summon a fire Deity or a fire Spirit you trust to assist you in this procedure.

Leo Vinci in Incense: Its Ritual Significance, Use and Preparation states that the Egyptian formula for Kyphi was given in the writings of Plutarch and that it contained 16 ingredients. He gives three different formulas for this incense in his book. My own personal formula contains more than 16 ingredients but smells much better than the ones given by Vinci.
Here’s the recipe. Blend together the following ingredients:
- Red sandalwood – 1 part
- Frankincense – 1/2 part
- Myrrh – 1/4 part
- Galangal – 1 part
- Juniper berries – 1/4 part
- Dragon’s blood – 1/4 part
- Calamus root – 1 part
- Bay laurel – 1 part
- Orris root – 1/4 part
- Henna powder – 1/4 part
- Cinnamon – 1/4 part
- Balm of Gilead – 1/4 part
- Styrax bark – 1/4 part
Add oils of amber, honey, acacia, orris, storax, lotus, and musk to personal preference.
Note: Many recipes for Kyphi call for the use of raisins, honey, and wine. These “wet” ingredients enable you to make the incense into a paste that is then formed into balls and left to dry before burning.

Add the following ingredients to 1/8 cup of sesame oil. Visualize the Goddess as you mix the essential oils and inhale the fragrance. For best results, use therapeutic grade organic oils instead of synthetics.
- 3 drops Myrrh
- 2 drops Cypress
- 1 drop Sandalwood
- 1 dried Mugwort leaf (optional)
This blend can be worn during the Waning Moon to honor Hekate, Goddess of the Fading Crescent. It can also be worn during rituals and magicks having to do with death, intuitive wisdom, dreams, divination, witchcraft, transition, child birth, and gateways or passages to other realms.
Note: Be cautious in the use of this blend as Mugwort is quite powerful and used in excess can be dangerous. A mint leaf can be used as a substitute for the Mugwort.
Lightly mix the ingredients together and place them in a jar for storage. A great prosperity blend.
- 1 cup salt
- 8 drops lotus oil
- 2 drops cinnamon oil
- 8 drops sandalwood oil
- 3 drops myrrh oil

Bathe in Circle Bath before any form of ritual work to strengthen, purify and prepare yourself for ritual.
The proportions here, though for essential oils, are by parts. One part may equal six drops. Generally speaking, there shouldn’t be more than ten total drops of essential oil per half-cup of bath salts. Experiment to find what works best, and please use only genuine essential oils. You should remember, too, the irritating qualities of some essential oils, and use accordingly.
