Let’s get to it.
What you will need:
- black salt
- herbs for protection
Here is a list of the herbs I used – but you can choose to not add herbs or use your own. We know I love my herbs….and this spell needs everything I can give it today:
- White Willow Bark: Divination, healing, love, protection
- Blessed Thistle: Protection, Spiritual aid
- Egyptian Basil: Love, exorcism, Wealth, Flying, Protection
- Carnation: charged with Luna ritual: protection, strength, healing, enhancing magical powers. This dried carnation was from this summer’s Luna ritual I shared. I dried it out and kept as much as I could.
- Lemon Balm: depression, love, healing, protection
- Agrimony: protection, sleep
- White Oak Bark: healing, memory, protection, love
- Black salt: protection
I just placed the cascarilla, herbs and black salt into my mortar and pestle and abracadabra – protection powder. While I am crafting my focus is 100% on my intent. I always grind clockwise to invoke protection as well as in 9 circles after the whole powder is ground. It’s a thing I do. Whatever direction to grind with you use, do so. If you are new and don’t know, try both and see which one feels the best to you.
To perform this spell, cast your circle or whatever you do when you do your magic. Some traditions have specific ways to call the quarters so follow yours. I always light a candle as I call each one. Take those 4 candles outside with you once you’ve finished.
You are going to want to honor them today with air, fire, water and earth. Do your thing.
Here are a few example for your ritual offerings: North: Earth (example: a small plant or crystal)
South: Fire (example:matches)
East: Air (example: incense)
West: Water (example: your best moon water – I’m giving this witch my blood moon water for this)
Your incantation is up to you, but here is one I wrote for the witch who requested this: Guardian of the (direction). I call on your power of (element) and honor you with (your offer) and ask that you bless this powder and protect all within it’s realm.
Release everyone you’ve called and your circle. Give thanks. End your ritual per your practice or tradition.The protection powder is now charged and ready to go.
Walk around your property in a big circle and place the candles you lit during your ritual at each direction and offer each element the offering from ritual around your property. You don’t need these things if you don’t have them, the candle and powder are enough if you are a baby witch. Just the cascarilla powder is enough if that’s all you have – but we all know how EXTRA Willow is. Focus your energy.
Sprinkle the powder over your offerings. You are going to want to dig a hole and bury everything after the candle has burned all the way down. I also include some black tourmaline to ward off negativity and fluorite to cloak – but if you don’t have the crystals to bury, that’s ok. No wrong way here. Please only the organic items here if you have added more to your ritual. Just a candle stump, powder and offering will do the trick. I always thank Gaia when digging into her.
Want to sprinkle the powder into a pentagram for max protection in the middle of your yard? Do it. It’s your magic. I have a gigantic one on my 2 acres.
After you’ve done your property, draw a line of this across your threshold like you would with brick dust.
Any leftover powder can be used in your magic. I keep a jar of just the cascarilla and a jar of my protection powder to use when I need it.
