Witches Jar's have been used for centuries to encourage a positive change in circumstances, from promoting healing to offering protection. They can be made for just any situation that calls for a little extra help. They are a form of natural magick using natures gifts.
Traditional Witches Jars/bottles often included ingredients that mine do not. You won't find things like hair, fingernails, rusty nails etc in any of my items. My version of the Witches Jar contains only ingredients that mother earth has provided. Ingredients such as Herbs, Resins, Barks, Crystals and Oils are the only items used within my recipes. I changed the name to Herbal Spell Jar's as it's more in line with the way I work.
I have been making Herbal Spell Jar's & Charms for many years here at The Pagan Way. The recipes contained within each jar are my own and I have many happy customers who return time after time for my items as they know just how well they work.
Inside a Herbal Spell Jar
As mentioned above, each Herbal Spell Jar generally contains a unique blend of dried herbs, Essential oils, Resins, Barks, Berries & Crystals. The actual recipe greatly depends on the purchase of the jar. Each ingredient is especially selected for its properties, again depending on the purpose.
Crafting a Herbal Spell Jar
Crafting a Herbal Spell Jar takes a lot of time & energy. I only ever craft whilst in my sacred space & my attention remains fully focused on the purpose of the item I am crafting. Each ingredient is blessed with the relevant energies, whether that is the sun, the moon or even an element. It is then magickally charged with intent before being blended. There is so much more to this process that goes on behind the scenes including singing bowls, mantras, symbols, crystal energies, moon phases, several charges over a set amount of days etc. Again, this all depends on what the intention is. Once the blend is ready, it is then placed within the jar. Once a witches has been crafted it is then fully charged and blessed as a final piece at my working altar, and then safely packaged up ready to be sent.
It may seem like a long process, and yes it can be, but this is what truly gives such potency to each and every witches jar I craft.
Where to put your Herbal Spell Jar
My Herbal Spell Jars have no labels on them to keep them discreet and they can be placed in any room within the home. Items for sleep would be best in the best in the bedroom, whilst items for strengthening relationships would be best placed in the main family room. Be guided by your intuition on where best to place your jar.
Once a month you should give your Herbal Spell Jar a little shake. This helps to reawaken any sleepy ingredients. Once the ingredients within your jar start to stick together & not move quite so freely, it is time to replace it. You can empty the contents of most of our jars within your garden as an offering but please be mindful of pets & children. The only exception to this is our protection jars, if you have ordered one of these, you will have further instructions regarding the disposal of these within your information pack.
The glass and lid are both reusable & recyclable
The important bit
Please do not open your Herbal Spell Jar until it is no longer needed or if you are replacing it. I cannot stress this enough. Opening the jar will release the energies and it will not be at all effective. This is even more important with the Protection Jars.
