“Yes, this is traditionally a winter magic, but desperate times…” says TikTok witch Jessi Rose. She’s got that right. Lots of people are looking for ways to avoid illness right now, from the medical to the social to the spiritual. And if there are pine cones in your yard, it can’t hurt to utilize their magic, right?
The method is pretty simple, as shown in this video.

Simply grab a bunch of pine cones (try to get ones that are not too broken up, shredded, or smooshed). Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Wash the pine cones under running water to make sure to remove any dirt or debris which may catch flame in the over. Place the pine cones a few inches apart on parchment paper on a baking sheet. Bake for one to one and half hours, checking often to make sure they don’t catch fire. Allow to cool completely on the baking sheet, and then get ready to work your magic.
Cleanse your space with incense and set your intentions. Drizzle each pine cone with the following: A few drops of seawater for protection, cleansing, and detoxification; wax from a white candle for healing and purifying; and wax from a green candle for general health.

If you choose to use sticks to hand your pinecones from, pre-treat it in the over the same way you did the cones. Use twine to fasten the cones together and onto any branches or twigs. Feel free to add your own decor and flourishes, as this is your spell!
Hang the garland above your bed for protection, and stay well.
