Witchy EDC

Originally posted by thewitchystuff

An EDC, short for Everyday Carry, is a set of items you carry around every day to assist you with your common problems, as well as emergency situations. These usually include, for normal people, flashlights, knives, wallets, smartphones and multitools.

But we’re witches and that means that the span of “common problems” and “emergency situations” we might encounter is a bit more… peculiar. This is why if one wants to be a fully, personally prepared witch, their EDC should contain some more items than the usual ‘muggle’ one.

This kit idea is different from a portable altar/witch kit in the sense that it is not designed to be your complete resource in a mobile, compact form, as many closeted witches treat their portable supplies, but rather a help set for times when you don’t have time or place to tackle stuff in a more elaborate way. A kind of set that allows you to perform a vast variety of spells from types of magic you might want to do on a daily basis,

Here’s a couple items you might want to carry around in your EDC if you’re a witch, grouped by use:

Basics

  • tealight candles/birthday candles
  • lighter/matches
  • marker pen
  • knife
  • reference copies of your most commonly used sigils (if you can’t draw them from memory)
  • clear quartz
  • basil
  • pieces of paper/sticky notes (for writing incantations or sigils down)

Protection

  • salt packets
  • acorns
  • bay leaves
  • black salt/charcoal tablets (charcoal tablets will come in handy if you have tummy problems, too)
  • rosemary (if you get rosemary essential oil, it can also be used to de-congest your nose and improve mental focus!)

Healing

  • amber
  • ground garlic (also useful to spice your food up ;))
  • mint (also useful for tummy aches)
  • chamomile
  • green aventurine/jade
  • carnelian

Social

  • glamoured lip-balm/lipstick with your common blessing (courage, charm etc.)
  • lavender
  • thyme
  • tiger’s eye
  • Peacekeeper’s powder

Self-care

  • rose quartz
  • sodalite
  • amethyst
  • orange peels (dried)
  • chocolate

Aggression

The herbs can be carried in packets made from plastic straws or as teabags, which you can brew to make an instant potion or tear to have the dried herb itself available.

Here is the latest #prototype I have been working on that incorporates a hidden wallet into a fashionable #knife sheath #cuff. I love the feel, the look and the functionality to make this a great every day #accessory.
