Witches Jar Spells

Jar spells, also known as bottle spells or container spells, are an old form of folk magic. One of the earliest mentions of this type of magic came from a 17th century. A man was advised to make a Witch's jar for his wife, because it was suspected that she was being 'bewitched' and they wanted to break the curse:

“Take your Wive’s Urine as before, and Cork, it in a Bottle with Nails, Pins and Needles, and bury it in the Earth; and that will do the feat. The Man did accordingly. And his Wife began to mend sensibly and in a competent time was finely well recovered; But there came a Woman from a Town some miles off to their house, with a lamentable Out-cry, that they had killed her Husband… But at last they understood by her, that her Husband was a Wizard, and had bewitched this Mans Wife and that this Counter-practice prescribed by the Old Man, which saved the Mans Wife from languishment, was the death of that Wizard that had bewitched her.”

-- Joseph Glanvill’s Saducismus Triumphatus, or Evidence concerning Witches and Apparitions (1681)

While this form of magic is most found in cursing and curse-breaking, it’s not just for baneful magic. The Hoodoo ‘honey jar spell’ for example is common in love magic. The jar spell is overall versatile, and can be custom-designed for a variety of needs.

Here’s how to design and cast a jar spell.

Jar Spell Intent

The first and most logical step in a jar spell is to define your intent. Your intent is what everything in your spell will revolve around. As per usual with magic, your intent should be:

  • Specific goals (no wishing, no generalizing, no multi-purpose spells for 12 different things)
  • Realistic (no Dungeons & Dragons or Harry Potter fantasy stuff)
  • Ethical (I'm not going to say what is or isn't ethical; but you should certainly consider your ethics, based on your spirituality, and think about the consequences of your actions)

Once your intent is determined, you would then proceed to begin to design your jar spell. Namely, what kind of things you need to put into it to achieve your goal.

Choosing a Container for Your Jar Spell

Basically, any kind of container can be used for a spell. I have to admit up front, though, I’m not entirely comfortable using containers made of plastic, but opinions vary on its effectiveness. I prefer glass, but people use clay and other materials. As long as it has no cracks and a tight-fitting lid or cork, you’re golden. Scrounge around the house or thrift shops. Consider using: mason jars, baby food jars, mayo or pickle jars, old salad and oil bottles.

Make sure you cleanse and consecrate the container you’re going to use. If you want, you can paint it in a color that’s in line with your intent or with symbols and images. This is not necessary, but any little help can give you a boost—plus, it keeps anyone who might stumble upon your jar from seeing the contents.

Your Jar Spell Contents

Deciding on the contents is basically the ‘meat’ of this magical working. While there is no limit to what you can choose to include, it’s important to select things that will help work toward your ultimate magical goal. I like to choose things from the following categories:

A Personal Item: a photograph, hair, nail clippings, blood or other personal item. You could also use a name written on paper. This should be of the person you are casting the spell on—so if you’re casting the spell for yourself, you’d use your own picture, item or name. If casting the spell for a friend or on someone else (such as a spell to get a bully to leave you alone), you would use their photo, name or item.

Written Intent or Prayer: There is a lot of power put into words, so I find it helpful to write your intent on something and slip it into a jar. If you are seeking the aid of a deity in your jar spell, you can write a note to them asking for their assistance.

Liquids: Generally the bottle contains some liquid, and which liquid you choose would depend on your intent.

  • Urine is used for protection jars and jars to break a curse, but can also be used for manipulative spells over others.
  • Vinegar is used to curse or harm others, or to ‘spoil’ something. Safety note: vinegar jars can explode—don’t fill it to the top and keep the jar wrapped in cloth or towels (unless you’re burying it).
  • Honey, sugar water or some kind of nectar is used when you want to compel someone or something—if you were seeking to make friends, to be more persuasive, to soothe over hurt feelings, etc., you’d want to ‘sweeten’ their disposition.
  • Ammonia is used for ‘cleansing’, when you want to banish negativity or malevolent entities, or when you wish to start new with a ‘clean slate’. Safety note: never burn candles on ammonia, do not place ammonia jars near heat, as it can be an explosive and flammable.
  • Tinctures, infusions, oils, etc. would be used for a multitude of other purposes: blessings, health, prosperity and the like. Naturally you would choose something based on your intent—for example, a money spell might include a tincture, infusion or oil made from money-drawing herbs like cinnamon or mint.
  • Water can be used, but I don’t really recommend plain water. At the very least you can make an herbal infusion with it to give it more of a boost. I personally think heavily salted and blessed water can be good for purification purposes, but beyond that I would avoid plain tap water.

Solids: Like with liquids, there are different types that you would choose from based on your intent. With this, you can be pretty creative. For example, to break a curse, jar spells usually include items like rusty nails and glass shards. To break up a couple, the caster might add some cat hair and some dog hair to the mix—to make the people fight like ‘cats and dogs’. Heart-shaped glitter or confetti might go into a jar spell to draw love. In a money jar spell, you might include some coins (preferably with the year of your birth printed on them). If I wanted to break writer’s block, I might make a jar spell with a small pencil and roll of paper wrapped around it. You might tie a ribbon around it to hold on to love, or to bind someone.

So basically—use your noggin and think of things that give off the kind of energy you’re interested in raising.

Two items that both magically powerful and easy to come by are crystals and herbs. You can find a variety of them anywhere, and they are able to carry the energy that you’ll want to put into your spell. Below I include two quick reference charts (one for herbs, one for crystals) that you can refer to if you’re new to working with these, however I highly recommend studying up and familiarizing yourself with some basic herbs and/or crystals you might have access to—the more you work with them and get a feel for them, the more skilled you will become at spellcraft.

Candles

Candles are not necessary in jar spells, but I find it adds yet another boost of power if you combine it with candle magic. Dress the candle of the appropriate color and burn it in the mouth of the jar, or on top of the sealed jar letting all the wax melt down. You can burn multiple candles on a jar over a course of time for an on-going project.

Words of Power

When I prepare a spell, I always like to plan a chant to say while I’m casting it. Chanting is a great way to raise energy. You can find a chant in a book or online, or you can make up your own. It doesn’t have to be Shakespeare to be effective. Something simple like:

Money, money, come to me;

Help me pay these bills I see.

As long as it suits the occasion and is meaningful to you, it’ll work.

Rhythm and rhyming can help you memorize it quickly before you start, and then you can really get into it like a mantra when you’re casting. By letting it spill from your lips effortlessly, it bypasses that conscious part of your brain and taps into your source of power—that part of the mind that sends the energy toward your goal.

Casting a Jar Spell Step-by-Step

  1. Complete all the preparation steps above, and gather everything you will need for your spell.
  2. If you prefer to use magical timing, you might look up the most effective day and hour to lend power to your spell. You do not need to cast a circle for this spell, but if you wish to do it within a ritual circle you may. Invoke a deity, if you wish, for assistance.
  3. Cleanse and consecrate any items if you have not yet done so.
  4. Ground and center yourself. State your intent, then focus on it.
  5. Pick up one item at a time (or place it on your pentacle) and charge it. Charging empowers the item with your personal intent, while stirring and stimulating the item’s own natural energy that you’re trying to tap. You might say something such as, “By the power of Earth, Air, Fire and Water; By the Power of the sun, moon and stars; With the blessings of the Goddess Aphrodite, I charge you, rose quartz, to attract love to me.“
  6. As you add items to your jar, chant to raise power.
  7. When you’re finished filling your jar, you can seal it right away (and then burn a candle on it if desired), or you can burn a candle in the open mouth of the jar.
  8. Meditate on having acquired your goal (don’t envision yourself wanting your goal, or you leave yourself in a perpetual state of wanting; envision yourself having your goal. What will life be like, how will you feel, when it is done?). Hold onto your visualization for about 20 minutes, or as long as you can.
  9. Seal your jar, if you have not. The spell is cast.

Congratulations- You Cast a Jar Spell

What to Do with your Spell Jar Now?

There are a few different options now that you’ve cast your jar spell. Basically you can bury it, hide it, toss it in water, keep it on your altar, or dismantle it. Which you choose depends on what you’re trying to accomplish.

Bury the jar when…

  • you are seeking permanent protection or to break or repel a curse. This will stand sentry on your property and protect you (or on the property of the person for whom you cast the jar spell). If you don’t have land of your own, you can bury it in a flower pot of soil left by your doorstep.
  • you want your jar to be a ‘magnet’ of sorts to continue draw things to you (attention, health, wealth, etc.). Bury it on the property of the person you’re casting for and be done with it.
  • you are casting a spell on another unbeknownst to them. Bury it on their property—ideally somewhere they cross over every day, like beneath their doorstep.
  • If you were doing some major cursing to harm another, you could bury it in a graveyard (not something I personally recommend by the way; but I’m just passing on the information).
  • You are trying to rid yourself of something (or rid the person you’re casting for of something), like a disease or bad habit. Bury the jar at a crossroads, don’t look back and ideally, never return.

Hide the jar when…

  • you want to bury it, but burying it is not an option. Hey, I am originally from New York City—I understand you can’t bury a jar easily when you live in an apartment. If this is the case, just hide it deep in the home somewhere—inside a wall, in the junk closet, or wherever it won’t be disturbed.
  • You plan on dismantling it sometime in the future, which when done properly will disengage the spell.

Toss the jar in water when…

  • using it to banish or exorcise any entities, or if you are working with any ‘questionable’ entities (again, not recommended, just passing on the information). Running natural water sources will purify it and protect you from their return.
  • it’s successfully removed a curse, a disease, a bad habit, etc.; this is an alternative to burying it at a crossroad. Keep in mind you could be fined for littering if you’re just tossing stuff into local waters.

*Tip: if it floats, puncture the cap with a hole, or tie it to a weight.

Source

Keep the jar on your altar when…

  • when your goal is an ongoing one that you’d like to keep working on. You can continue to burn candles over the mouth of the jar, or shake it while saying your chant to keep it working for you. Alternatively, if you have a shrine to your God/dess and sought their aid, you can keep it there. Again, shake it occasionally while chanting to keep the power going. This is actually a good option for spells that are going to require a great deal of time and effort—for example, you might do a jar spell to help you pass tests, and keep it on your altar all through college. You might repeat your chant, burn a candle or shake it every night before exams. This is better than making a new spell for every exam.

Dismantle the jar when…

  • when the spells power is no longer necessary and you’d like the effects to stop. For example, if you cast a jar spell to attract love, you might have had many interests for a while. Now, you are getting married and you don’t want to attract any more potential lovers. So you would dismantle the spell. To do this, remove the contents and bury them at a crossroads or into running water, clean the container and dispose of it. With a proper cleansing you could re-use it.

Warning: It’s not generally a good idea to dismantle a jar used for cursing or hexing, or one for breaking a curse or hex, unless you really know what you’re doing. Just bury it at the crossroads or in running water and be done with it.

One thing I do not recommend is throwing it into a fire, as is mentioned in some sources. This was in particular a method of cursing and curse-breaking; the Witch would throw the jar into the fire and when it burst it meant the curse was working (torturing the person it is cast on) or it meant the curse you were lifting has broken. This is not necessary, and not a safe option at all. However, if you do dismantle a jar spell and have some components left over (a ribbon, a paper, etc.), you could burn those items after it’s dismantled if you have a safe means of doing so.

I am trying to move on, i saw a protection spell on youtube but i do nt want to harm anyone one but it hurts too much because they r hurting me emotionally. I do know that i have to move on and learn my lessons in karma but its a hard pill to swallow. please advice. I put in all my energy, money and love in the business. It was all i had , and they just wanted that spot in town. Please advice

      Hello Sage,

      I have a question and it's been bugging me. So I did a honey jar spell. The guy liked me, we have been friends since a long time now and I wanted to give him a little nudge. So when I did my petition, the words when writing in a circle did not fully connect with one another but I continued. However I was bugged by this and the next day I opened the jar to place a correct petition in their. Should I have not opened the jar? Do I have to start over?

      I guess what im really trying to figure out is what the best way to bring about peace is in an extremely tough situation. The hatred between my wife and my mother has really taken a toll on my health and I'm just trying to reach out for some help. Any input on what type of spell to use and some guidance at this point would be a godsend.

      Thanks,

      Hi,

      I have a question: if i was to do a petition spell using a light blue piece of paper to represent peace, and use a little bit of hair in the center of the petition paper of the person holding the grudge, then fold it and burn a candle on top of the petition, for instance, a tea light candle, might this work to bring peace between two family members? Im just trying to figure out if it's worth a try and how effective something like this might be. Thanks in advance.

      Great ideas for the beginner. I just wanted to comment on negative magic. Just a reminder: Do not use your spell casting to harm anyone. HARM NONE. That is a very crucial lesson, especially for the newbies out there. Choose your intentions wisely. And as always...Keep reading, learning, searching...and by all means practice using your own discretion, nothing is written in stone!

      I know my original comment is quite lengthy and involved, but if someone could at least give me some guidance/pointers it would really be appreciated. It's just so hard because i really don't have any substantial knowledge on this subject, and some of the ingredients are tough to find. I just want to make sure i give my spell the best possible chance of working.

      Hi,

      I need some help: i have a situation where my wife has a Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde personality. I really do love her, but it's been very hard over the years, and quite frankly, I'm worn out. When times are good, things are great; but when they're bad, they're REAL bad. I mean I've been hit, I've had things thrown at me, I've been sworn at, etc. I always keep quiet as best i can and keep my emotions inside, but i have suffered immensely. Also, on top of that, she has a grudge against my mother for no good reason and the name calling has actually reached the point of pure evil. I will not even repeat the things she has wished upon me or my mother. I just stand there and take it and just calmly say things like, "Thats not very nice." Or sometimes i just calmly walk away, but the last thing i want to do is fan the flames. Right now im going through a good phase with her; Its the type of thing that could change ten minutes from now. Please, can you answer a few important questions for my sake?: What color should i paint the Mason jar. I think it's blue, but im not positive. Also, please indicate for me what shade, for instance, light blue, or dark red, etc. What type of honey would be most effective? What ingredients would i put in the jar? Should i use special herbs, stones, etc.? Also, when it comes to tying the jar to my target, can i use multiple items such as hair, a petition paper, etc.? Also, what type and color of candles would i use?

      Do the candles need to be dressed?

      If yes, with what type of oil and how do i do it? Unfortunately, im at a great disadvantage because i know nothing about this and i need help. I believe the answer lies in a honey jar spell, but i need a little help in understanding what needs to be done.

      Thanks in advance!

      I agree with Starseed after reading all the comments on here most are for selfish reasons by self centered people. Witchcraft is serious business folks, be careful what you wish to conjure up. There are other ways to get better results. Please think about what you are wanting a little longer. Also, People, the recipe for a spell is the way it is for a reason, don't try to change it...if it says sugar, there is a reason artificial sweetener is not called for...it wont work the way it is suppose to.

      Star Seed! OMG!!! when I read comments like yours it just makes me sad. Not everything is done by the Devil. Not everything is evil... Herbs and spices have been used for century to heal the heart needs healing as well. Now when I read Christian folks going in on pages like this you condratict what the bible teaches you. If you doing something to hurt someone than yes. Know that spells do not work unless the other person is willing there has to be something there- in order for it to work. Love spells do not work unless there is love there.

      Star Seed, WRONG. There are a ton of positive uses for spell jars. I JUST did one a few hours ago so that my dad would sell me my grandparents house to keep it in the family. My grandpa built this house and from day one my step mother has been wanting to sell it when my grandparents passed. Please note the word "SELL". My father inherited 2 houses from my grandparents and I'm willing to BUY it to keep it in the family. Also a little curious as to you calling this black magic when hoodoo and voodoo are Christian practices. Like Aunt Jet in Practical Magic says, "you can't practice witchcraft while you look down your nose at it".

      Are you really sure people will use this teachings in an ETHICAL way?? Just look at the comments below, there is only egoistic wishes of people who don't care about the consequences of their desires on other people... You will be responsible on a karmic level for everything they will do with your spells.

      People, do you want to have your boyfriend back? Maybe you should change something in you, so he can decide to love you for a good reason and not because you FORCED a spell on him, why did he break up in the first place?.. You want a spell for gambling? How about learning stuff about law of attraction and how you can be the creator of your life through intention... For all of you who are interested in magic because you want a better life, just check "The Secret" and "Quantum Jump" and "Law of attraction" and "Meditation" on Youtube.

      There is a special HELL for witches, where it all dark and painful and believe me you don't want to end up there when you die. Choose to create the life you want with YOUR INTENTION. There is plenty of people teaching the real white magic out there. What you see on this blog is BLACK magic. You have been worn now.

      That is a tough one. Normally if you're affraid of getting assaulted I would recommend binding the person and justice spells. Jar spells are good for justice.

      The problem with cursing someone is you have to really wallow in the negative emotions for it to be effective. This can tend to effect you as well, of course, especially if you don't have the skills to cleanse and banish them effectively. If you're willing to take the risk, use a candle spells. Preferably a candle of a human figure, and dress it with the appropriate oils & herbs (I'm sure it would not take much research for you to find appropriate ones you can obtain), and burn it over a petition of the person, preferably with a photo or something personal. Scratch their name into it and what you want to happen.

      But it would probably be a better course for you to do justice spells (remember, they don't only work for legal things; more like people reaping what they sow). And spells for you to rid yourself of your excess anger and move on.

      Honey jar would be good, get something personal of your boss (photo w/name & birth date written on back is good, as well as business card, pen, discarded napkin, hair (check back of chairs), etc. Also could do a 'sugar box' variation. Write your petition on a piece of paper ripped off a bag of sugar. If you can, try baking something with some of the honey/sugar you use (as long as you're not putting any poisonous herbs into it). Serve it to your boss.

      I was assaulted several months ago and turned away by police. I'm afraid of what continuing to pursue this will do for me since my attacker and I work in the same field and he has a lot more connections with me. I don't think he should get away with it, but I don't want to cause bodily harm. How can I get back at him? I want his personal and professional life to fall apart, just like mine did after he hurt me. I have no way of burying anything on his property without him knowing.

      How to stop my boss for bulling me ?

      I would return them to the earth; burying them (off your property) or dumping them into a body of moving water is the best way to get rid of things for me because I don't like to dump things used for spiritual purposes in the trash, but for some, dumping something in the trash is very good symbolism when trying to break curses-- like 'good riddance' to it.

      The bath is a complex thing, though, that would be hard to do full on without him knowing/consenting.

      Usually a full-out uncrossing bath to break a magical hold involves anointing with oils, then getting into the tub water infused with the herbs, saying a chant or psalm (depending on religion) nine times while pouring water over your head between each recital, getting out and anointing again. It's usually done for 7 days straight at the same time (hour of Jupiter, preferrably), and then anointing again and finishing with a prayer.

      Then you'd reserve some of the water and use it to clean the house, tub... after last day, dump the water. Protective spells are generally a good idea after that to prevent it from being done again.

      Now if he's not on board with it, like I said, that's not an option.

      You can try to pick up some curse-breaking soap (soap that has been infused with herbs/oils and magic), like a bar of Florida water soap or something, and give it to him as a gift and hope he uses it.

      Hi, thanks a lot for instructions. What should I do with the water, remaining candle, salt,... basically everything remaining after the candle goes out. Can I just dump everything in trash or should I do anything with them?

      Also, If I was able to see him, how does that cleansing bath works? It probably cannot be a sophisticated ritual but I can draw him a bath with sea salt something like that would work?

      It's always tough when there are multiple parties involved, esp. when you'[re no longer with the person, but the goal should be to thwart the intent, not necessarily the person who has the intent or the person who cast the spell for the intent.

      Your best bet in a situation like this really is to try and lift the curses off him so he can be freed from their influences. That way he'll be free to make his own decisions (go back to you, go with her, stay on his own, etc.). The only harm involved is people having to deal with it when they don't get their way, no actual magical harm is directed toward anyone.

      Now it would be best if you were with him, because you could give him cleansing baths and such to break curses. Uncrossing baths are great for this but you may not be on good enough terms to get him to do this.

      You would have to use a substitute-- a picture, put his name/birthdate on it, if you have anything personal (old brush with his hair in it? A piece of clothing he left at your home? Etc.) you could also put it on the altar to add power.

      Now there are a lot of ways to do this; if you have moderate experience you may have already a few ideas. If not, a simple way to try and accomplish it is put his picture/all these things on a table, surround it with a circle of white salt. You can add white candles (just place along the salt line) for protection as well.

      Take a black candle, scratch his name/birthdate, and write your intent, such as. "All magical jinxes, hexes, curses and bindings are removed from (his name) and he is freed from any and all magical influences."

      Put that black candle in a small pot. Just dribble some wax with another candle on the bottom of the pot and stand your black candle on it, hold it till the wax dries and it's standing upright. Now fill it halfway up the candle with water. Add salt to the water or use some kind of blessed water if you can.

      Now put the pot with the candle over his picture inside the salt circle and light the black candle. WHen the flame goes low enough to hit the water, it'll go out.

      Now, what does this mean/how does it work? Well, the white circle of salt & (if any) white candles protect you and him-- keep the curses confined. You are using something representing him, this is sympathetic magic-- sort of like a voodoo doll. You link to his energy with your symbols. The black candle absorbs the negativity energy (think how black clothes absorb the sun energy in the summer). You are basically taking all that energy from him into the candle... and the water is extinguishing it, putting it all out.

      Now don't forget to cleanse the area when done (incense, or smudging, or sprinkle with blessed water, etc.).

      Best of luck, let us know how things work out.

      Hi Melanie; it's difficult to know what a spellcaster's intent was. Hair is a common ingredient. White & black threads could be anything from seeking balance to protection & purity to trying to create strife/division. Usually it's the other ingredients in the jar that lend more of a hint (the type of herbs, objects, liquid, etc.), but even then, there are no 'set spells'... there are just methods with many variations. I would personally just bury it.

      Hi! There is a girl who has been using voodoo specialists to come between me and my partner. She has caused a lot of darkness and confusion in our relationship and is going out of her way to cause us trouble. She broke us up ultimately after years of trying and now is trying to be with him. What strong combination (or multiple jar spells) do you recommend to send her on her way and break or nullify her curses? I do not wish any one to get hurt but she is becoming out of control.

      Also, since she is not the person who is casting the magik (she pays for it to be cast) should I target her or the caster? I don’t know the identity of the caster.

      I appreciate your help.

      Hi Berta; that's a sweet thought. You might want to get the permission of the couple in question. You can put pictures of them with their names & birth dates into, or under, the jar, plus lots of little symbols for pregnancy & babies-- seeds, an egg, etc. If you read the article I give some suggestions for crystals & herbs for fertility. Definitely wanna do this when the moon is waxing. You could also burn candles over it with the names/intents scratched into it on a monthly basis, preferably when your niece is ovulating if she'll tell you when she is. Good luck!

      Urine. In fact, ammonia is what replaced urine, lol.

      I have never tried substituting acidic juices for ammonia, they would bring a lot of energy from the fruit into it. So do your research and consider the energy of the fruit with the energy of your intent.

      I would not personally use bleach, which is more associated with cleansing, and many use it in dark magic to harm others.

      One paper inside the jar is fine.

      I wish you much luck in turning your situation around! Also might want to try a honey jar or sugar box spell for the hiring manager to attract their attention and 'sweeten' them to you. Just put their name/card in the jar of honey or a box/bag of sugar, chant over it that they are drawn to you, and take a spoonful per day in your tea/coffee.

      Good luck!

      Hi Kim; so many stores sell crystals, just make sure they're what you're getting (I went to buy a clear quartz once, the minute I pulled it out of the bag I could tell it was plastic, not quartz). There are websites that help you identify stones so you can see if someone is trying to gyp you. Be careful of sellers of inexpensive strings of craft beads, often the product is just painted/colored glass made to look like stones.

      I like the Magickal Cat or the Sacred Grove store, but I also just pick them up on Amazon if you check the reviews or check with the seller (always be careful if the price seems like a great bargain, lol). Usually you can find them, too, in museum shops, science stores, etc.

      As for which ones to get, honestly depends on what you're trying to do. The Magickal Cat has a good guide: https://www.themagickalcat.com/Articles.asp?ID=240

      I'm not affiliated, I'm just a satisfied customer.

      HI! And thank you for the helpful information! I have a question on the jar spells. IF you are casting a jar spell on someone who lives a distance away (multiple states away), and are unable to bury the jar on their property, what can you do instead? And, if casting a spell on someone who you only have a picture of (no personal items, no hair, no nail clippings, etc), how can one go about doing that? A woman came between myself and my fiancé. She has done this to multiple other couples, ultimately breaking the couples up. She has no remorse for what she does, as she feeds off of the attention from the men. I wish to remove her from my fiances life, to ultimately make it so that she no longer harms others relationships, but NOT cause harm to her. All I have of her is a picture, though. And, also, SHE lives states away. How would one do this type of spell?

      a couple of weeks ago, i went behind the fence and i saw two mason jars {medium size pickle jars} with some substance in it and looked like it was either solidifying or turning into some powdery substance, as it had white residue from the liquid that evaporated. l know it was placed there because of the way they were positioned and how all the branches were surrounding them to hold together from falling down. One of the jars had dropped sideways and i put it upright again as i didn't wanna disturb anything. so im here asking for some guidance on what this might be, if i should worry about it or not. please send me some info in regards to this . i appreciate it . thank you

      Hi there,

      I made a sour jar to break up a couple because one of the people seemed to be toxic and potentially an alcoholic. I also binded her. I didn't put that much vinegar in the jar, it was one of the oversized braggs vinegar jars with only about 1/5 filled with vinegar and also screws and nails, charcoal powder and some other non liquids. Anyway, I shook it everyday while chanting my spell. After a couple weeks, has must have built up and the bottle exploded in my hands without cutting me. I was going to work so I didn't have time to clean it properly. Some got on my purse. My questions are, do I recast the spell? I'm not sure how the relationship is going. Also, I've had some bad luck at work, do I need to buy a new purse? I saged it but it didn't help, and I'm finally bringing a new purse to work today.

      Hi Beignet; I wouldn't feel awful. Some people think it's okay to throw old spell items away, they feel it's been used up. Some might say if it didn't work, either because of a mistake in making it or because the energy you sent toward your goal simply couldn't overcome energy against it; but if that's the case then there was nothing to worry about.

      There are different schools of thought. While I prefer the disposal methods I've listed here, I wouldn't cry over spilt milk. Worrying about it is only going to keep putting energy into it; the best thing you can do at this point is just let it go and stop sending it energy.

      You're going to be fine. ;o)

      Hi Tnanan; that's hard to tell, as hair and bottles and chewing gum wrappers have been common in folk magic for a variety of uses-- it could be anything from the original home owner trying to protect the property to someone else trying to curse someone living there, or a neighbor could have put it there trying to draw good neighbors (gum foil would mostly indicate that).

      I wouldn't automatically be worried unless it gives off a bad vibe or things start happening, but by throwing them off the property into running water, it can be neutralized. If there have been a lot of seeming misfortunes or unhappiness in the home it might be good to do a good cleansing, but if not then most likely whatever magic someone was trying to work with those objects was benign.

      Hi Perez; that is a tough situation and there are spells you can try to do to send other people on their way, but there is a bigger problem here which is going to make the same issues keep cropping up. That is that your boyfriend/husband is allowing this to go on.

      At this point I think you could benefit far more from couple's counseling than magic, deciding together acceptable boundaries with family/friends. Magic might be used to help facilitate communication and come to peaceful agreements, but until then, trying to get his family to give you some breathing room is just symptom of a bigger problem.

      Hi Shay; it could mean lots of things, it really would depend on your intent-- what are you focusing on when you do this, and why are you choosing those specific ingredients.

      Honey is usually used to sweeten people toward us (their feelings) or to draw things to us; grapefruit is associated with cleansing & bringing happiness.

      But just throwing some honey on a grapefruit and burying it, without any intent, isn't going to do anything.

      Hi Roe; the thing about spells is that they are a way of raising and directing energy toward one goal. When you're casting on another person, you bring new energies into the mix, because they have their own will (even if they're not specifically doing magic, it's still sending energy). This means that your will for him to be nice would have to be a lot stronger than his will to be how he is. That could be a real struggle, but you can certainly try a honey jar.

      Personally I wouldn't start there, though. I'd do some home cleansing and bring loving energies into the home, maybe work on a candle spell or herbal petition or something to improve communications, then attempt to reason with him about how his words make you feel and why he sometimes lashes out. Then I'd probably do some workings to nurture the relationship, the respect, the closeness, etc. (as well as mundane things, like spending time together doing fun/romantic stuff).

      Sometimes just trying to make people do something is like slapping a band aid on a bigger problem, kwim? And it can work to an extent and for a while, but it's like pulling weeds-- you're not getting to the root.

      Best of luck :o)

      Hi Beebear; Are you really sure you want to try and manipulate someone against their will? You'd be taking on a huge responsibility.

      Hair isn't necessary and not even always possible when casting a spell for someone/on someone, photos are good options if you can't get personal belongings.

      But if I were you I'd think through whether trying to control your friend is the best way to reconcile with that person. Good luck!

      Hi Antonio; black candles do draw negativity, but not new stuff. It draws up what's there. That is the point of using them, it absorbs the negativity and you contain it and send it to be neutralized into the Earth. If you want to rid yourself of negativity you could burn white candles (dispels it, disburses it). You can also make mix of salt water and if you like mix in herbs to banish negativity like hyssop and lemon, and make like a tea-- strain it and spray it around, wash with it (especially floors) heck you can bathe in it (pour a cup in your bath).

      Another good way to banish negativity is smudging or fuming, basically burning incense. I like to use sage for general cleansings, but sandalwood and cinnamon also make a nice combination.

      If I were doing a jar spell for something you need, and you feel negativity is getting in the way banish the negativity first. Then do the jar spell, and if you like, do candle magic on the jar.

      If I were doing the jar spell to banish the negativity, I'd just do the jar spell, and if desired, do the candle magic on top of it. No need to banish negativity before you banish negativity, if that makes sense ;o)

      I did a jar spell to convince a friend to move in with me and start over(her ex abused her and got her into drugs). Originally I didn't know if I wanted to do urine (to protect her) or sugar water (to prosuede her) but I went with the latter. I did a sigil on a piece of paper then burned it in the jar(to charge and activate it), then added the sugar water and a little mint (she hasn't talked to me in 2 weeks and I'm worried about her). I hid it in my spare bedroom where she would be staying.

      I'm hoping it works soon, I'm worried about her and just want her safe and healthy

      I am wanting to do a spell to convince a friend to move in with me and start fresh (she's been on a destructive path) would I use honey/sugar water or urine for that one.

      Hi, there are several ways to deal with spell leftovers, the most common being to bury them. For most spells you'd bury it on your own property, but if you are banishing something I would look for a place off the property and out of the way for you so you don't go by again for a long time. You could also bundle up the stuff and keep it until you see the spell manifest. Some people burn their leftover spell remnants, throw it into running water, etc.

      It's just important to consider what's safe for each option-- considering things like is it environmentally safe (if so, don't put it in water or the ground), is it explosive (if so, don't throw it in a fire), etc.

      Communication spells are a great way to deal with fall-outs, as opposed to trying to manipulate others, so I think you made a good choice. Best of luck and thank you for sharing.

      I cast a candle spell that involved a photograph being wrapped in a piece of cloth. What should I do with those items once the spell has been cast? I've never done one with a photograph before

      Hello,

      I cast a spell for forgiveness and communication. It was mainly for a guy who I have feelings for and he has feelings for me, but something occurred that made him upset and we have not spoken to each other since. My intent was not to manipulate emotions, but to soothe over any negative feelings to create a positive connection between us. I’m mainly wanted forgiveness.

      Hi Amri; wow, that is an interesting sign to interpret, but since it was meant for you, you're probably the best person to determine that with your intuition. Meditate or do divination on it.

      To me it would indicate the couple is somehow still 'stuck' together-- either by circumstance, they're extremely reluctant to separate and their energy toward each other is overpowering the spell, there could be children involved that bond them, etc. It could also be a sign that it's not a good idea, or if you're trying to break up 2 people you have no business breaking up you could be getting the divine warning to cut it out.

      Like I said though, the sign was meant for you; you should look on it, pray, meditate, try divination, etc. to help decipher it. Good luck!

      Hi Bri; it's possible it is some kind of Hoodoo or Witchcraft, nails are usually used for protection, such as if you want to stop someone from doing harm you might use nails in a charm and hide it on their property to stop them. If they were coffin nails, though, it could have been to curse someone.

      In a rock is something I'm not familiar with, unless it was part of a larger carving, or maybe the type of rock has significance?

      It can be hard to interpret just the remnants of a found magical item, esp. without being able to examine it. Was this left for you or just something you found?

      Best thing to really do with it if you want to dispel it would be to throw it in a stream of running water.

      I'm doing a break up jar spell...i noticed that the two photos are now stuck to each other. What does that mean?

      I have a question, it’s not about the jar spell but one based on voodoo I think. I discovered rock like substance with nails stuck all around it, do you know what type of witchcraft it is?

      Would it be okay if I just kept the jar on me at all times? Would it still work?

      Hi Makaylah; that's always a rough one with depression because honestly you need to get in a better state of mind before doing spellwork.

      Usually spells aren't the best place to start with depression; first and foremost, a doctor visit is best, in case there is a physical cause (chemical imbalance, allergy, etc.).

      Other things you can do to build up is grounding and centering, practice mindfulness and meditate for peace of mind, start making little changes that make you feel better (get a drawer organized, or start doing your hair nice every day if you neglect it, etc.). Start doing positive affirmations, get out get more fresh air or exercise if you need it, eat better, take some lemon tea, get enough sleep, spend some time looking at yellow things (lemons, sunshine, etc.), use aromatherapy, etc.

      Build yourself up to a place where you're able to focus and direct your energy to spells to help you get over the hump at that point.

      Here are some things you can try when depressing thoughts plague you: https://exemplore.com/wicca-witchcraft/Wiccan-Spel...
