House Protection Spell Bottle
Since the earliest spell bottles were created for protection, it seems fitting to begin with one made for this purpose. Ideally, such a bottle will be walled up in a new home under construction, or placed under the floorboards. If this is impossible, simply place it in a position of importance somewhere in the home.
 
Items needed:
 
 
 
 
 
 

1 glass jar with cork stopper or lid (a small canning jar is fine)
 
 
1/2 to 1 cup salt (depending on size of the jar)
 
3 cloves garlic
9 bay leaves
7 TBS dried basil
4 TBS dill seeds
1 TBS sage
1 TBS anise
1 TBS black pepper
1 TBS fennel
1 bowl

In the morning, ideally on a bright and sunny day, assemble all items.
Place the salt into the bowl and say:
Salt that protects, protect my home and all within it.
Add the cloves of garlic to the bowl and say:
Garlic that protects, protect my home and all within it.
Crumble the bay leaves, place in the bowl and say:
Bay that protects, protect my home and all within it.
Add the basil and say:
Basil that protects, protect my home and all within it.
Add dill and say:
Dill that protects, protect my home and all within it.
Add the sage and say:
Sage that protects, protect my home and all within it.
Add the anise and say:
Anise that protects, protect my home and all within it.
Add the pepper and say:
Pepper that protects, protect my home and all within it.
Add the fennel and say:
Fennel that protects, protect my home and all within it.
 
Mix together the herbs and the salt with your hands. Through the movement of your hands and fingers, lend energy to the potent protective items. Visualize your home as a shining, safe, guarded, secure place of sanctuary. Pour the mixture into the jar. Seal tightly and place in your home with the following words:
Salt and herbs, nine times nine
Guard now this home of mine.
It is done.

SPELL OF THE WITCH'S BOTTLE
1 jar - 1 red cloth cut into the shape of a heart some of your own hair clippings -
some of your own nail clippings - 13 iron nails - 13 black-headed pins - 1 cup of sea salt
The making of the witch's bottle is very simple and should be done as early on in your
practices as you possibly can. Never let another person know that you are making the
bottle, or it's location. Place all of the items on your altar and take a few minutes
to meditate on magical protection, for your safety. Take up your hair and nail clippings
and place them into the jar saying:
"Here do I present myself"
Take up the 13 iron nails and place them into the jar saying:
"Here are my swords of protection"
Take up the salt and place it into the jar saying:
"Here is salt to purify me"
Take up the red heart-shaped cloth. Hold it high and say:
"Here is the heart of any who wish me harm"
Stick all 13 black-headed pins into the cloth heart and say:
"Let any who wish me harm or any who wish me ill,
feel the pain of their own heart's hate, rebounded by this witch's will"
Place the pin-studded heart into the jar. Next fill the jar with your own urine. This sounds
revolting, but urine is a powerful fluid-condenser, and by doing this is symbolic of saying
that you think any spell which is cast against you is a useless and worthless gesture, and
this is the frame of mind you should take while performing this act. When the jar is filled,
or at least halfway so, cork it up with a red tapered candle. Light the candle and as it burns,
it will drip wax to seal the bottle. Take it out and bury it somewhere near your home.
Say the following:
"Blessed Mother of the Darkened Moon, I pray that you grant me this boon. A bottle of
protection do I bury here: to protect me from those both far and near. May any curse or
magic spell placed on me, be dispelled. Rebounded on the sender be, In accordance
with the Law of Three."
Once the bottle is buried, it should never be dug up again. To do so would be to release
all of the negativity that it has absorbed for you. If another person digs up the bottle, it
will not affect them, as it is designed to absorb negativity aimed directly to you.
This energy is tied to you and you alone. It cannot affect another person.
Do not dig up the witch-bottle for any reason. If you move to a new location,
the witch-bottle will continue to work for you. The witch's bottle is buried in the earth
so that the earth may ground the energies of the negativity directed towards you.
One bottle should be all that is needed.

PLANET PROTECTION SHIELD
This is protection spell that actually calls upon the all the great celestial bodies in a
solar system so this is pretty powerful spell.
Items needed:
11 small jars - Permanent marker
Barley, Sage, Garlic, Parsley, Rosemary, Ailanthus, Rose petals,
Seaweed or any water plant, Silverweed, Weeping Willow, Moonwort
It doesn't matter if these herbs are dried, powdered or fresh.
First take your eleven jars and label each one with the name of a planet, including
the Earth, Moon and Sun.
Then draw the symbols of each planet on the jars as well making sure your symbol matches the planet.
Next fill each jar about half way with warm water.
Then find the jar labeled Sun and add your rosemary; take your Mercury jar and add parsley;
Take your Venus jar and add the rose petals; take your Earth jar and add your barley;
Take your Mars jar and add your garlic; take your Jupiter jar and add your sage;
Take your Saturn jar and add your weeping willow; take your Uranus jar and add your ailanthus;
Take your Neptune jar and add your water plant and take your Pluto jar and add the Silverweed
and take your Moon jar and add your Moonwort. Close the jars very tightly the put the jars in
straight row and chant:
"I invoke the god of these planets:
Apollo, Hermes, Aphrodite, Gaia, Diana, Aries, Zeus, Uranus, Saturn,
Poseidon, Hades lend me your power of your world for protection."
Visualize that each planet is in those jars and giving off positive protecting energy.
After that let them sit out for a night. The next day find a place either in your back yard or
garden to bury them. Keep close to your house. If you live in an apartment or just don't have
a place to bury them, store the jars in the back of closet or in cabinet that is not used often.
The jars will begin to collect the energy of the planets each nightfall. Give it some to time to work.
Don't try to rush it, the longer the jars are not disturbed the stronger the protection shield will be
around your home and your family.

SPELL TO BRING LUST OR LOVE TO A RELATIONSHIP BOTTLE
Get a small bottle with a lid, you can cleanse it and consecrate it if you wish.
Either write the name of you and your lover or your symbols on a piece of paper, then put
the paper inside the bottle so the side with the writing on is facing outwards.
Grind up some herbs that are used in love or lust charms.
Love- rose petals, jasmine flowers, lavender, orisis root. Lust - ginger, cloves, cinnamon,
caraway. Whilst you are grinding them up visualize you and your partner (or future partner)
being deeply in lust or happy and in love, you could also say something while doing this like:
"herbs of the earth herbs of lust bring me passion in you I trust"
Then put them into the bottle - Then add drops of essential oils used for love or lust. love-
rose, rosemary, ylang ylang. Lust- patchouli, cinnamon, ylang ylang, orange.
Fill the bottle with oil almost to the top.
Get a candle (preferably pink or red) and drip wax into the bottle until it is about to overflow
and then put the lid on the bottle while the wax is still molten. This seals the spell.
Sit and mediate for a while and do whatever you normally do to 'charge up' your charms.
Imagine the bottle glowing with a pink or red light.
You can carry or wear the bottle or you could bury or hang it somewhere special to you and
in the future if you no longer require lust or love between you and your partner, then smash
the bottle and bury it somewhere far away.

SACRED SALT JAR
This is not only great to have for oneself, but it makes a nice gift to someone special if you
happen to know what scents they like or stones they like. Since what you put into it is "yours",
it is like giving a part of yourself, too.
This mixture is excellent to charge stones in and to "simmer energies". Once it has blended
for a few months, a pinch can be added to rituals, etc., bathwater or as a gift to Mother Earth.
You can also make a "starter salt" as a gift for a friend. You can also give of your own sacred
salt mixture to a special friend to help blend powers and energies when they make their own
sacred salt mixture.
The mixture should be made and kept in a covered stone or Earthen jar, but can be made
and kept in a covered glass jar until you find one that is suitable. There are thoughts on what
kind of salt to use. Some use rock salt, some Earth salt and some sea salt, some even use
normal table salt. Whatever salt you use, make sure that it is "natural" and not iodized.
You blend the salt with chopped or ground herbs, tiny crystals, small stones, nuts seeds,
jewelry, locks of hair, ground incense and a few drops of your favorite oils, anything that
you wish. Even rose petals and other flowers, or a lock of hair. When you have cleansed
and charged stones and crystals by sun and Moon, place them in this mixture to store until
you wish to use them or give them as gifts.

THE BOTTLE SPELL (VARIATION OF THE TRADITIONAL WITCH'S BOTTLE)
This spell can be used to neutralize the power of those who intend to hurt your reputation,
in any way pose a threat to your security, or who want to do you physical harm.
--black thread black ink or black ballpoint pin parchment paper
--1 bottle with a cork or mortar and pestle 1 white candle
--4 tablespoons orris-root (or oak moss) 4 tablespoons sea salt
--4 tablespoons black powdered iron (available at pottery shops where ironstone is made)
--4 tablespoons frankincense or myrrh
Mix the sea salt, orris-root powder, and iron in a bowl.
Then cut a piece of parchment to fit inside your bottle and write on it in black ink:
"I neutralize the power of [name of your adversary] to do me any harm.
I ask that this be correct and for the good of all. So mote it be."
Roll up the parchment, tie it with black thread to bind it, and place it in the bottle.
Fill the bottle with the dry ingredients.
Then take the white candle and, while turning the bottle counter clockwise, drip
wax over the cork to seal it. Last, secretly bury the bottle in a place where it will
not be disturbed and no animal or person will dig it up.
It should never be opened or the power of the spell is lost.

MONEY JAR
-- paper & pen seven dimes quart jar with screw-on lid bay leaf
Write your need on the paper and drop it into the jar.
Take 7 dimes in your dominate hand and place them one by one into the jar.
As each one drops, visualize it multiplying into huge amounts and say:
"Toward this wish, the money grows
by leaps and bounds - it overflows.
Coins that jingle, coins that shine
Come to me now - you are mine."
Write your name on the bay leaf and drop it into the jar. Screw on the lid and place the
jar where you can see it everyday, but where it is not visible to everyone who enters your home.
Add a coin or two to the jar each day, and watch as money flows to you from unexpected sources.
After you obtain the money you need, remove the paper and bury it outside.

A WITCH'S BOTTLE
Gather rosemary, needles and pins. Fill a small jar with these three ingredients,
saying the following as you work:
Pins, needles, rosemary, wine
In this witch's bottle of mine
Guard against harm and enmity
This is my will, So mote it be!
Visualize these herbs doing just that. When the jar is full, pour in red wine.
Then cap or cork the jar and drip wax from a black or red candle around the seal.
Bury the jar at the farthest corner of your property or place it in an inconspicuous
spot in the house. The Witch's bottle destroys negativity and evil.
The pins and needles impale evil, the wine drowns it, and the rosemary send it far from your property.

  GOOD LUCK HERB JAR
To attract good fortune into your life or change a streak of bad luck to good, fill a small jar (leaving a bit of space) with any combination of the following magical herbs: buckthorn bark, chamomile, clover, dandelion, frankincense, heal - all, honeysuckle, huckleberry leaves, Irish moss, Job's tears, John the Conqueror, khus -khus, lotus, lucky hand root, mistletoe, myrrh, nutmeg, rose hips, rosemary, sandalwood, spearmint, star anise, thyme, Tonka bean. Seal your jar tightly and keep it in your kitchen on a shelf or a windowsill. Place your hands upon the jar each morning upon rising, and say : To God and Goddess I do pray Guide me through another day Let good fortune come my way Good luck hither now I say After reciting the magical incantation, gently shake the jar a few times and then kiss it before putting it back. I suggest using the same jar for a maximum of 13 days, then return the herbs to the Earth and repeat if necessary.

INSPIRATION JAR
 Purpose: To bring on inspiration. For creativity. Ingredients: Mason jar Small crystal Dried orange peels (two-thirds) Dried mint (one-third) 2 drops orange essential oil 1 drop mint essential oil Square piece of black cotton fabric Rubber band Orange fabric paint or orange acrylic Orange ribbon Note: The color orange is the color of creative energies. The shading (how dark or light the orange is) that you use will denote the level of creative energies you wish to channel. A dark orange will take you deep into the creative energies while a light orange is less intense. Moon cycle: No moon cycle is selected for this spell because all phases of the moon hold different levels of creative energies, including the dark moon. If you follow moon phases, choose the cycle that fits your purpose best. Gather ingredients. With a clean and dry jar before you, place the mint first and then the orange peels inside, filling it up about two-thirds of the way. Add two drops of orange essential oil and one drop mint essential oil. More if you are using a large mason jar. Stir ingredients together. Take the small crystal in your hand and say something such as: "Creativity Come to me In whispers and dreams And visions that gleam." Place the crystal inside the jar with the potpourri. For the lid, cover the opening of the jar with black fabric so that the side of the fabric hangs down over the edges about 2 inches. With a pencil, mark the center top of the fabric. Take the fabric off the jar, lie it flat on a hard surface. Using orange paint, acrylic or fabric paint, paint on a spiral. While the paint is drying, cover the jar temporarily with a lid so that it doesn't get spilled. Spiral: The spiral is a symbol of the dance of life. It shows the continuous cycle of ourselves going inward (within ourselves/our psyche) and then going outward (expressing ourselves). Black: The black fabric in this spell is used as an absorption color. Black absorbs all colors, all energies. By placing the orange spiral on this we are signifying just what those energies are that the black is absorbing, all creative energies. Once the paint is dry, place the fabric on the jar once again. The spiral should now be on the centered top of the jar's mouth. Holding the fabric in place, wrap the rubber band around the sides to hold it in place. Next, tie the orange ribbon overtop of the rubber band. Keep this inspiration jar in your work area, where you do your writing, painting, drawing, or keep it by your bed to bring on inspiring dreams.

LUCK JAR
If you are unlucky enough to break a mirror, collect all the pieces, put in a glass jar and stand on you window sill, the shards deflect all the bad luck away from the house.

 WORRY JAM JAR SPELL
Worries and anxieties that are becoming too big and interfering with daily life benefit from this spell. Take and cleanse a jam jar or box with a tight fitting lid. Write the problem on a slip of paper Pass it through the 4 Elements, and pop it in the jar, reciting the following spell. Leave the jar in the moonlight, but visible to yourself. Each time the problem sneaks into your mind, think of the jar. You are only permitted to worry if you go and remove the lid and the slip of paper. You'll find that soon, you can't be bothered to even give it thought. When the problem is resolved, remove the slip and bury or burn it, giving thanks to the Lady. Into this vessel secured up tight I place my anxieties that they might Find their right level within my life Be only acknowledged when I say it's right. I swear that I will not give thought to my woe Until such time to this vessel I go And take off the lid and grieve, for I know That unless the lid's missing, trapped is my foe.

TO STOP A TROUBLE MAKER JAR
Write the name of the person on a piece of parchment/paper, fold it twice.
Take a lime and cut it twice, once diagonally and once horizontally, but don't cut it all the
way into four pieces. Place the paper or parchment inside the lime and hold it together with
two long steel nails. Place the lime into a clean glass jar and put into it some ash, salt and
vinegar and screw the lid on tight. The ash and salt are supposed to thwart their efforts to
cause you trouble of any kind, and the vinegar and lime should sour their own affairs at the same time.

Prosperity Bottle
 
from Tessa
 
 
 
What you need a clean, empty bottle of your choice, or a mason  jar- it must be  clean and also free of any labels or stickers- it  also must have a lid
 
 
 
one part Allspice
 
one part Basil
 
1/4 part cinnamon essential oil
 
5 parts base oil (your choice, olive oil, vegetable oil, etc.)- this  base oil should be enough to fill the bottle after your other  ingredients are in it.
 
cauldron
 
a spoon
 
 
 
Cast your circle if you wish. Visualize your goal (getting a good- paying job, getting a lump sum of money, etc.) Charge the herbs and  the cinnamon ssential oil. As you charge them, say,
 
 
 
"Money, money  comes to me, in the way of (a job, check, cash,  however you wish to  receive it), so mote it be. Bring me prosperity, three times three."
 
 
 
Visualize your goal as you mix the herbs and oil in your cauldron.  Then pour the mix into your bottle and close it. Shake it a bit and  continue to visualize your goal.  Close the circle and place your bottle someplace to draw your  intended goal to you.
 
 
 
(Some will tell you to always strain the herbs from your brews and  mixtures. I never do this when making bottles like this. I leave the  herbs in the oil so that their magickal properties can work for me. I  do strain herbs from teas and other types of brews.)
 

 
 
An Earth Protection Bottle
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Into a long, small bottle pour fresh, clean soil. Fill it to the top and cap it. Place this bottle near the entrance, preferable in a window, to guard against evil entering your home. In past ages the earth was thought to confound evil spirits and demons, who had to count every grain of earth in the bottle before entering the dwelling. Today evil spirits are seen as negativity which floats around the Earth in large quantities. This negativity can enter your home. Therefore, this earth protection bottle can be useful in blocking negativity from entering your house.
 

Thread Bottle Spell
 
Find a bottle and stuff it with small pieces of thread of many colors (except black). This project will probably take you many weeks, since only small pieces of thread (one to three inches in length) should be used, and each must be introduced into the bottle separately.
 
As you add each piece of thread, say something like the following:
 

Tangle the bane up!
Defend against foes, bits of thread,
But to family and friends bring only good.
Tangle the bane up!
When the bottle is full, cap it and place it in a window, in the attic or in a cupboard. If possible, touch the bottle and repeat your chant at least once a week to reinforce the magick. This spell will help defend your home and family from the negative energy that uninvited visitors and negative thoughts can introduce. It's less effective against magickal attack, but magickal attacks are rare in the lives of the average family.
 

Death’s Doors
An Egyptian transformation spell for smoothing netherworld transitions, this spell should only be used when a person is almost certainly dying. It is designed to ease the crossing-over.
You will need:
 A small photo of the person, preferably in their prime
 Several fresh leaves from any plant
 A small jar with a lid
 Three coins
 A piece of paper
 A pen or pencil
 A few drops of water
 A pinch of salt
Write the dying person’s name on the piece of paper.
Place the paper with the person’s name on it, the photograph, the leaves, the coins, a few drops of water and a pinch of salt in the jar and then put the lid on the jar, securing it tightly.
Hold the jar with both hands and repeat the following words aloud:
O hear me, keeper of the four winds,
I, your humble servant of the earth,
Seeker of the key,
I entreat you!
This spirit that I hold and guard
Is ready for its journey and wishes
Safekeeping on its way.
I send it forth and entrust it to your hands
To bring it home as safely, just as you sent it forth.
Bury the jar in the ground.
 
Jar of Stones Spell
A spell of protection and power for the home
This simple spell provides both protection and energy for your home. It is a spell that constantly grows in strength and can actually be done daily.
You will need:
- a glass jar
- a small amount of clean sand
- a beeswax candle
Find a glass jar that you would like to use for your spell (a quart canning jar is a good choice). Wash the jar thoroughly inside and out with warm water and soap. Dry the jar completely. Light your beeswax candle and drop a few drops of molten wax onto the interior bottom of the jar.  Next, place about one inch of sand in the jar.
Place the jar near an entrance door to your home.  Every time you find a small stone, drop it in the jar. Any type of stone will do, so feel free to be creative with the stones used. You do not have to put a stone in daily, they can be added as frequently as you wish. It is important though that you put them in one at a time and the spell works best if you put no more than one stone in per day.
As you add each stone, speak the following words aloud:
Snare the evils, bring them woe,
Where they wish, don�t let them go,
Evil from this place be banned,
By this wish, by this command!
Once the bottle has been filled, put the lid on and leave it by the door. You can make as many of these as you like and place them by every door.

Controlling Spell
A spell from Peru used to gain power over people, animals or inanimate objects.
Caution: This is a powerful and potentially dangerous spell.
You will need:
A particle of the person, animal or object, or in the case of an object, perhaps the thing itself
Three beeswax candles
A small bowl of spring water
A small jar or container with a lid
A length of twine
A thorn from any plant
A small piece of fabric, approximately 5” x 5”
This spell should only be performed on a waning moon and only when the moon is high. Light the three candles. Place the bowl in front of them so that the bowl is between you and the candles. Now, place the fabric on the table or surface between you and the bowl. Once you have this arranged, you are ready to begin.
Take whatever particle you have of this person, animal or thing and hold it in your left hand. Close your eyes and imagine being in total control over the person, animal or thing. Open your eyes and dip the fingers of your right hand into the water. Sprinkle the water onto the empty fabric while still holding the object in your left hand and repeat these words aloud:
Through my effort, I take your will
Next, place whatever you are holding in your left hand on the fabric and sprinkle it with water from your right hand. As you do so, repeat these words:
By this act, my will is yours
Remove the item from the fabric. Place the thorn in the center of the fabric. Quickly roll the fabric and bind it with the twine. Place the whole in the jar or container and secure the lid.
Take each of the candles and drip a little wax onto the top of the container. Extinguish the candles.
Opening the jar or container can break the spell.

WITCH'S PROTECTION BOTTLE
Get a glass jar such as a Mason jar, or even a baby food jar, anything that has a lid to it. Fill the jar halfway with small sharp objects such as pins, metal scrapings, broken glass, razor blades, etc. Be careful when you are filling the jar! Once the jar is half full with these objects, fill the jar up with a holy water mixture of salt and water. Put the top on the jar and be sure it's secured. This jar should be buried in the ground at least twelve inches deep. As long as the bottle remains in the ground, you will be protected from harm that is sent your way. If you bury the jar somewhere away from home, and you wont know if it will still be there in a year (City Witches don't always have backyards), then be sure to repeat this process each year.
