How to Make a Magick Herb Jar


Article by John Scardina


I’ve been that spiritual being that loves to share any magick that is already part of you. I believe in magick and practice often, it all allows one to enhance energies and that higher power that is sometimes hidden deep within our being. We search, self-educate and search some more in order to find our true spiritual self. We spend so much time looking outward for answers, that we forget many of the answers reside inside of us.

There is so much of you that has been left untouched in relation to finding your higher self, and only you can find these missing pieces. You can be told or taught where to look, but only you unlock these events and grow. Whether or not it be a personal or business journey, I have learned and remind others to always “look within, before looking outward.”

Your energy is best served with simple tasks that will enhance the magick without much thought, preparation or effort. It is here where you truly grow.

As an example of some process, let’s say you find a Ritual that you think suits you. You go out and purchase of the items needed and go home and perform the ritual, now what? You just duplicated a ritual, yay. Did the ritual jive with you, did you become one with this ritual? Most likely not, don’t get me wrong I’ll never say not to purchase any items to create a ritual hell I’ve sold them.

All I’m saying here is to make something belong to you, make it a part of you. If you duplicate any ritual without adding a piece of you, you have just gone through a motion without your power. Change the words, make it yours, use household or beloved items in your ritual and add your power into it.

The result will be so much stronger with your energy embedded into any ritual. The magic and power is in you already, you just need to believe that it is there and utilize it. This can be in Ritual, Dance, Candle burning, Meditation, Magick, Tarot, and pendulums. Explore with what you have and experience the addition of your power in all that you do.

I want to share with you a recipe for a Magick Herb Jar (Kitchen Witch style). Most average kitchens will already have these items in the cupboards or spice rack. Put this together, add something else if you like, if you do not have one or two spices don’t worry about adding them, improvise. Do it on a Full Moon, make it into a Ritual, believe in your Power, own it make it yours. Enjoy!


Fill one jar with the following:

Cinnamon [for dream Magick]

Allspice [healing]
Ginger [lunar Magick]
Basil [protection]
Fennel seeds [spiritual healing]
Garlic [spiritual purification]
Marjoram [protection]

Before you do any psychic work, inhale the scent deeply and shake the jar gently.
