Witch Bottle – a bit of old school Witchcraft, for protection
This spell kit already contains very specific instructions. All you need to is open it up carefully (it contains sharp instruments) and follow the instruction guide inside.
This keeps future attacks from harming you, up to about a year or so out. Of course, it also minimizes possible damage from the curses of enemies.
The Witch Bottle is something that I believe everyone should have, whether you regularly practice other magick or not.
The Witch bottle is an ancient practice, as a result, they’re still found in archeological digs and in construction sites, mainly throughout Europe.
Witches place bits of personal concerns (hair, fingernails, anything with DNA) in the jar. Then, you speak the spell into the jar and seal it up. You bury the jar, somewhere off of your property, where it will remain hidden. The reason why I advise people to bury it off their property is because it “fills up”. As an example, consider the filters in your HVAC, heating/air conditioning unit. They get gunk build up and you dispose of them, you don’t want that on your property.
Naturally, this is a fine addition to your overall set of magickal wards, an integral part of your defense system. Read more on the Free Magick Lessons page.
According to Wikipedia
A witch or folk healer would prepare the witch’s bottle. Historically, the witch’s bottle contained the victim’s (the person who believed they had a spell put on them, for example) urine, hair or nail clippings, or red thread from sprite traps. Later witch bottles were filled with rosemary, needles and pins, and red wine. Historically and currently, the bottle is then buried at the farthest corner of the property, beneath the house hearth, or placed in an inconspicuous spot in the house. It is believed that after being buried, the bottle captures evil which is impaled on the pins and needles, drowned by the wine, and sent away by the rosemary.
Sometimes sea water or earth are used instead. Other types of witch bottles may contain sand, stones, knotted threads, feathers, shells, herbs, flowers, salt, vinegar, oil, coins, or ashes. A similar magical device is the “lemon and pins” charm.
Another variation is within the disposal of the bottle. Some witch’s bottles were thrown into a fire and when they exploded, the spell was broken or the witch supposedly killed.
The witch bottle was believed to be active as long as the bottle remained hidden and unbroken. People did go through a lot of trouble in hiding their witch bottles – those buried underneath fireplaces have been found only after the rest of the building has been torn down or otherwise disappeared. The origins of this tradition have been dated at least to the 16th century.
For years, I’ve taken to tinkering with variations of this spell and getting it just right. Obviously, others have some unique ways of approaching it but mine has a simple twist to it that I’ve not seen, elsewhere. While I don’t advertise the difference, it’s in the instructions, inside the kit.
