The Magical Properties of Oranges
I feel like Peter Griffin sitting at the table in a sweater, hands surrounding a hot cup of tea.
I’m cold as shit. Ohio. This is what my mammaw would call “neumony weather” and it’s not appreciated today.
In my cup, I have orange tea, clover honey and some of my dried orange slices.
It’s warm and my hands are defrosting so I decided to take my little break with y’all and talk about the magical properties of oranges.
Not only are they warming my old bones, but they are also pretty magical on their own.
They are a symbol of the sun.
They are used in divination.
They are used to attract love.
They are used to improve luck.
They are used for prosperity.
Today, they are just used to keep me warm in my tea and my heart.
Use in any spell that needs the color orange or some joy. Y’all are doing joy spells and not just asking for shit, right?
Dry them and use in an incense.
Dry them and use in tea.
Dry them and put them in your spell bags or mojos.
Dry them and use them in creativity work. I need some of that today. I feel stunted. And cold. Did I tell you I was freezing my ass off here?
Use this fruit of joy when balancing your sacral chakra.
Use them when concentrating on healing. Just smelling them make me feel better.
Dry them and just keep them on your desk so you can look at them while slipping into a moment of meditation. It brings me to the sun.

Today I spent some time in grief. Today I spent some time in anger and today I spent some time in frustration.All good things.I saw someone yesterday who knows my Dad, we talked, I dreamed about him, I woke up with him and had to go through it.On Sunday, I like to plan my week, set myself up for success.
This work uses my personal Sun Oil. I do not show pictures of my altars or my work, but I this is the oil that I made. I use the Greater Key to create most of my oils, but this one I created with my ancestors…..which leads to the story of today.
Sundays are days of power. I create my oils using the days of the week if I can, if not, I don’t stress (here is a Day of the Week correspondence post: https://www.whitewitchgrimoire.com/day-of-the-week-correspondences/)
Today I was just off. I planned this post, but today I stopped it from posting this morning and I am editing it now. Spirit called me to not post.
We all have those days. My close friend lost beautiful memories today, others have lost their loved ones, so much that we each experience. We have those times when we get caught up in our feels and can’t do shit.
And today was that day, kids.I woke up and made a Circle of God, then told him I hated him. And I don’t mean God, I mean The All. What came next was a roller coaster.I cried. I mourned. I hated. I grieved. I cried. And I fucking cried.I was a teenager yelling “I hate it here!” and I won’t even lie. I was just a mess of epic proportions.
Then I had an experience that made me get up, get my Sun oil, get some stuff and create fucking change.
We all grieve. We’ve all lost, but unpacking and living here has been so hard for me and I had to let it all out and grab my shit and go. It’s been almost 2 years.
We cannot just let go. We MUST work through it and feel this shit. We MUST.
But when we let it define us, we’ve fucked up.
I’ll always be transparent, so I am going to tell you something. I thought my whole vibe today was because I missed my dad. I do miss him more than Big Macs, but missing him was what I needed. I needed to get out of where I had unpacked and stfu and LISTEN.
And he had something to say. He guided me.
He’s here. I know that, but had I not processed today, I would have made a professional error that may have ruined my business reputation. That’s how deep his message was.
This morning, it was a post about Sun oil and work for tonight. Now, it’s everything about this.I cannot succeed without clearing the path, letting a little more go and opening up. Period. I can’t.
Sometimes, something so small will happen with such momentous results. My Dad had my back today. I processed and soothed and calmed before I saw his message in full glory.
And now, after having this experience, today’s post means a whole lot more.
Let’s set up this week to make it our bitch and shine like the gold we have become.
Willow’s Sun Oil: Used for dressing candles or any work for self-power and success
- Carrier – I used coconut when I made this
- Slice of dried orange and ground orange see (Magical properties of oranges and how to dry below)
- Frankincense resin
- High John root pieces
I made this on my ancestor altar and I am going to use it tonight to plan my week.
Willow’s Make This Week My Bitch Spell
What you’ll need:
- white, orange or yellow candle (Color correspondence: https://www.whitewitchgrimoire.com/color-correspondences/)
- Sun Oil
- Angelica root
- Lemon balm
- 3 tea lights or tapers
You can use dandelion, chamomile, cinnamon, eyebright, rosemary, rue, sunflowers, marigold. Herbs related to the sun.I normally use 3 herbs, as I work with odd numbers and 3 is my favorite, but you do you I’ve already pulled some cards, which I do before everything.
I’ve already made a fresh offering to my ancestors. I am going to dress a candle with the oil and herbs and sit quietly.
I’m going to bless everything, say my petition and sit and light the candle. I am going to light 3 tea lights and place them around that candle like a triangle.
As the candle burns, I am going to journal what steps to take to plan for this week, what I want to conquer and take notes for the full moon when I’m sure I have a lot more to release.I am using the 3 extra lights for the trinity. That can be Triple Moon, Holy Trinity, Hekate, whatever we work with.
After I journal, I will sit and watch the movie of “me dominating and accomplishing everything I just wrote down” in my witch eye while staring at the center candle while the 3 other candles dance in my field of vision. I will watch this movie and hold the emotion of having already accomplished all of it, with extra….because I always want that extra Derwood talks about. I will let all 4 candles burn out. I used tea lights and a chime so it won’t take long.
They will burn as the sunsets.
I will raise my frequency and power for all of this.
This week? It’s now my bitch. Make it yours.

Drying Zest of Citrus for Use in Spellwork
Drying out the zest of lemons, limes, oranges and other fruit is a way to add their magical energy to our spells. I like to grind them up and make a spell powder or incense.
When using dried ingredients, we can add their energy to baths, bags, candles, and make teas and other magical potions.
If you’ve ever tried to get a lemon in a bottle spell, this one’s for you
Ruler: The Moon
Uses: purification and love.
Mix lemons with salt for a scrub or add to bath water and soak. For love spells, add sugar to lemon juice and drink it, giving some to the one you desire. To solve a love problem, burn a white candle rubbed with lemons or lemon powder.
Ruler: The Sun
Suck on a lime to release inhibitions. Lime can be an aggressive ingredient to induce jealousy in another. It can be used in an oil of powder and added to commanding or compelling work.
A symbol of gold and prosperity. Leave as an offering next to a Buddha statue to increase your luck and wealth. Fruits will attract ants, flies and other critters so I prefer to powder and dry them to keep on hand.
Ruler: The Moon
On a dark moon, peel the skin off a grapefruit in one piece and hang the skin above a doorway for protection. The skin should be dried. Dry and ground rind to sprinkle outside of your doors and windows to keep enemies away for good. Eat the flesh to promote chastity and heal sexual hangups. When eaten during a waning moon it can lift spirits and energize the weary (source: Encyclopedia of Magical Ingredients )
You can add some oil to a plate with these powders to roll candles in without the sticky mess
