Kitchen Witch Cursing
In response to the lovely Herbalrog’s post
Some granny/Appalachia/kitchen witch curse tips I can share (all non-toxic)
DO NOT EAT THE FOOD YOU ARE CURSING TO GIVE TO SOMEONE ELSE!!! Think of common properties of everyday kitchen spices and get creative. Also be specific with your intention-like Herbalrog said, timing, amount of time it will last, stipulations. Specificity is key with ANY magic.
- pepper-great for those spreading lies and talking general shit. The hotter the pepper (vegetable or spice) the more intense the curse.
- salt-to repel someone from reentering your life and home.
- vinegar-to make someone eat their words or to stop running their mouth.
- basil-for someone who owes you money.
- mint-to cool someone’s anger or hatred toward you.
- potato-for someone standing in your way. carve someone’s name into the potato (or initials) and then cut it up/cook as normal.
- using twine when binding meat as a sympathetic magic way to bind someone’s actions (gossip, lies, manipulation, whatever wrong it is they are doing).
- having a wooden spoon you use ONLY for cursing magic within the kitchen. You can inscribe/woodburn sigils and words to your liking. This is VERY useful. Just be sure you ONLY use it for cursing and hexing for foods.
- lemon/lime/any tart fruit-to stop someone’s slander, lies, and general cursing
- Stirring counter clockwise is good for undoing the actions or intent of the person you are cursing.
- Stirring clockwise is for sealing/bringing to fruition .
Also remember you don’t always have to cook up food for someone.
- You can do cursing/hexing in your kitchen. Write someone’s name on a slip of paper (or take their picture) and put it in your pot and add vinegar, oils, needles/nailsand herbs on the stove, intending your hex on that person. Toss out like (preferably off your property) when done.
- Most kitchen witches, myself included, keep glass jars and bottles around. You can take a piece of paper with the person’s name or their picture, put in a jar with oil and herbs and shake it up each time you focus your hexing intent. Obviously the more shaking you do the more intense. Do til you feel the hexing is done and they’ve stopped their shit.
When cursing/hexing food (or doing the pot trick like I mentioned above), you can also say (from Dorothy Morrison’s Utterly Wicked, pg. 66):
The magic that’s within this dish is meant for (name of target), as is my wish.
On others who may hear its call it shall not have any effect at all.
Pure delight is all they’ll feel as they fill their plates and eat this meal.
But (name of target) it will hit magically
As I will, so mote it be.
