I needed a jar like this for my gift for sooo long, being an empath is such a blessing and a curse. I’ve lately suffered through more problems taking in negative energy and I feel as though I need to add some protection regarding that. And I so did!
A jar(small preferrably)
Chamomile infused olive oil - Peace and Security
Taglock of yourself (hair, blood, nail clippings)
A pinch of:
Salt - Purification
Black pepper - Protection
Basil - dispels weakness
Cinnamon - Strength
Sage - Purify
Clove - banish Negative forces
Coffee - dispel negative thoughts
Dandelion leaf - healing and defeating negativity
Bay - Healing, strengthening psychic abilities.
1. Invoke your deities or anything that can help you create it.
2. Put all of the ingredients together and while doing so you recite and repeat:
“I protect myself, As this gift can harm, Shall I be balanced, Give power to this charm.”
3. Once it’s together, seal it with wax (I chose black since it corresponds with absorbing negativity, purple works too.)
(sorry for the crappy image quality, I’m desktop only. also, the sugar and coffee mixed together, at the bottom. grrr)
soooo, this was my very first spell I made myself, and I’m really glad with how it turned out. I first made it back in December, just before school started back up. I knew I had a hard time with school, so I decided to do something witchy about it! At this point, I was still totally a baby witch, and I’m proud of how I was able to step out of my comfort zone and make a spell jar.
Now, for the spell jar;
Ingredients: Sugar to sweeten the rest of the school year to me and me to school in general Coffee grounds for energy and courage to do better and not slink to the back Cayennepepper to burn away old, bad habits. Cloves toaid in seeking what is sought, good luck, friendship, and keeping negativity at bay Rosemary for success Basil to protect against stress and, again, the courage to be a good student
also, I didn’t do this the first time I made this jar, but bc I had some extra space in the jar, I topped it off with some coarse sea salt, for cleansing and idk what else.
Beforehand, I cleansed the jar. Since I couldn’t find my cleansing spray, I rubbed some hand sanitizer on the jar to cleanse it. Then, I just kind of thought of my intent a lot, and as I was layering the herbs, focusing on what they would each bring me.
The last time I made this jar, it helped me get out of bed easier in the mornings and also go to sleep easier! This time, I’m not sure how it’s manifesting, but it’s only been one night.
Feel free to message, ask or dm, me and tell me how this works out for you! Add feel free to reblog/like to bookmark, and you have my full permission to use and alter as you see fit, just if you post your spell jar anywhere, please link this post/tag me/etc.
I’m tagging @cosmic-witch bc she mentioned that if you posted some original content, to tag her bc she wants to see it, so…yeah.
The road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began Now far ahead the road has gone And I must follow if I can
For when you really really need a change in life, and want to bring in a new adventure. (Dwarves not included)
Ginger - for bringing adventure and new experiences. Be heavy handed with this one, it’s the main purpose of the jar.
Cinnamon - multi-purpose, it represents whatever your journey is about (spirituality, success, healing, protection, power, love, luck, strength, prosperity, etc. If it’s part of your personal journey, it’s probably a cinnamon correspondence)
Ground Coffee - to dispel negative thoughts, overcome internal blocks, bring peace of mind, and keep you grounded. Basically erase all doubts that might hold you back in your new adventure.
Also associated with happiness, and I always recommend having SOMETHING in your jar/sachet spells for happiness, because you do NOT want a new adventure that’s basically going to be walking through hell and back.
Pumpkin Pie Spice - for bringing a new beginning through banishment of the old. This is one of my personal correspondences, and you can skip it if you want to or don’t think you need it. I use it as an “out with the old, in with the new” ingredient. Like autumn, and the death of the old to make way for the renewal in spring.
Powdered Egg Shell - for protection. Because as I said before, the last thing you want is to invite a new adventure only to have it turn out to be hell.
Frankincense (essential oil or resin) - for successful ventures
NOTE: If using the essential oil, I create a salt first, since I don’t like adding wet ingredients to a dry jar when I can help it. See how I do it here.
I find it helpful to say aloud the intent of each ingredient as I put it into the jar, especially with something like the cinnamon, where there’s many meanings it could have.

I tag many things
that have to do with self care on my blog as “self care is magick”. I
believe this, wholeheartedly. After all, you are your most important tool.
Here’s a little spell to help you with that.
Pink candle (put a notch one
Black birthday candle
A list of four things you
Sigils for self love
Set up everything you normally do before working a spell. Do any grounding or cleansing you feel is needed.
Pick up the black candle in each of your hands and pour everything that you feel you dislike about yourself into it. Down to the last thing.
Take a deep breath and light the candle, saying:“as
this candle burns away, so do all of my negative thoughts about myself. ”
Release all of your negative thoughts as the candle burns away.
When the candle has burned to the point of going out, shake yourself out.
Pick up the pink candle and light it, saying:“I
have things in myself that I can see as beautiful, such as"… say as many
things as you can think of
Put the sigils in the container as you say them
Once the candle has burned down to the notch, begin to fill your container with the herbs, for every ingredient you put in, state three
things that are beautiful about you, that you don’t like. (ex: if you have
freckles and don’t like them, say "my freckles are beautiful”)
Add your crystals. For every crystal you put in, state three things you like about yourself for each. (ex:I just got my hair cut and it looks awesome, or, my makeup looks so good today)
Seal the container with its
Kiss the side of it, saying:“let
me know that I am lovely, for I know no one else like me. In every part of me I
know there is beauty, because it is a part of me. I am beautiful because I am
astounding. I am beautiful because I am amazing. I am beautiful because I am
me, and only I can be myself.”
Seal the container in wax and place in a place you will see it every day. (ex: hang above your bed, hang in front of a mirror, in front of a computer, etc.)
every time you see it, say something you enjoy about yourself.
That’s it! At step
12, you’re done with the initial spell! Make sure you’ve cleaned up and snuffed
all flames; now go relax, take a nice candle lit bath or drink some tea! Step 13
is very important, don’t feel bad about missing it a few times.
**about the herbs,
if you don’t like these, feel free to mix and match what suits you! This is just what I used! Its all behind the
intent, you don’t have to use everything!**
Here is an illustrated set of instructions I made on how to make a Positivity Spell Jar for my illustration class this past quarter.
What you’ll need:
Salt- for protection
Candle- light and let melt around edges of jar to Cast Spell
Rosemary- for mental strength
Lavender- to keep calm
Citrine- for abundance
Rose Quartz- for love
Blue Thread- for harmony
As you set each item into the jar focus on what they represent to you. Your magick and energy melding with each, coming from inside you and around you. Close off the jar and wrap the thread round the top of the jar. Light the candle, visualizing the flame as the energy casting the spell.
This can be modified to make absolutely any type of spell jar. Use different ingredients and colors to symbolize different things.

Hey, hey cuties. This little series is LGBTQ related magic, as a queer witch, I see a lack of magic specific to my community. So with the lovely group of folks I’ve had to advise me, I have managed to come up with quite a few things, as well as feature some work of other folks! Many of the topics in my little series here were requested. So before you go give me shit about what it is, it was requested, and your girl here always honors those requests!
So let’s get started.
This week’s request was “To appear more masculine” as a request from a transguy, so this is focused on that particular request! So here we go!
JAR SPELL – from me ( @witchy-woman )
sea salt - for protection basil - for protection, dispels confusion, fear & weakness. black pepper - for courage geranium - for overcoming negative thoughts & attitudes, lifting spirits, protection & happiness. holly - said to heighten masculinity cedar - confidence & strength pine - new beginnings, resilience, growth & repelling negativity
Focus your intent for each and every layer, say your intent out loud (even over and over) if it helps! Meditate and focus your whole purpose for the jar, cork and seal it(I have a simple tutorial how to do so here). Don’t forget to stick it in the moonlight to charge it if you feel like it needs a kick!
a jar spell is when the ingredients of a spell are combined or layered together in a jar, as opposed to a spell which would have varied and specific actions for each herb or stone. it is simpler and tends to cast a general effect or status, rather than bring about a direct action.
🍾how to use
often after sealing the ingredients together, you can keep in in the house or on your person as a charm to benefit from its magical effects. as with a witch’s bottle, a popular jar spell, is sometimes buried or hidden on a property to grant the entire area its effects. if you feel a jar spell is wearing down, you can unseal it and recharge it with energy, from moonlight for example, and then reseal it.
🍾there’s mold in my jar!
that’s because you sealed in moisture. to clean it, you way want to let some water/bleach combination soak inside it, or depending on the size of the bottle, wash it as with any dish or clean the inside with a q-tip and disinfectant.
Here it is. The legendary jar. This jar helps me to FIND MONEY PHYSICALLY LAYING AROUND. For example, I found a fifty dollar bill on the ground today, laying beside a twenty, that I used to pay for my medication. Nice 😎👍🏻
Fill a small jar with nothing but small scraps of money. Paper money. Do NOT just tear the corners off of whole bills. You must find these small bits already torn off, all on their lonesome. Small enough pieces they won’t be usable anywhere. The larger the denomination, the better. It’s okay to tear up a bit to make it fit in the jar, but DONT just take bits off of full bills.
Then just kinda
Forget about the jar
Leave it laying around
When you find the jar, you can expect to find money later on. Let the jar get lost and found and lost and found. It’s the FINDING it that matters.
This is something I made today, and hopefully will be including in a back-to-school spell bottle I’ll make later in the week. I was fortunate to have both time and ingredients on my hands, and figured I’d write this up for my personal reference.
Intent: to promote self-love, confidence, self-esteem, and comfort
- container of some sort
- Himalayan Pink Salt (self-love, purification, healing, Venus associations)
- Dried Lavender (peace and calm, love, personal strong connection of home and comfort)
- Nutmeg (protection, strong personal connection of comfort and familial love)
- Cocoa (comfort, sweetness, love)
Grind all of the ingredients together with a mortar and pestle. Make sure there’s enough of the pink salt in it that the color is still strongly visible. Keep grinding until it’s a powder, and then pour it into whatever container you have.
I threw in some rose quartz beads I had, a piece of amethyst, and a clear quartz to help charge it, and plan to charge it tonight under the waxing moon. If you’re big on sigils, you could draw that on the container as well! Or whatever other charging methods you like.
Just a few things I learned about spell Jars
🌸if the spell requires you to burry the jar, think twice about it especially if your jar is glass. Find an alternative way to deal with it
🌙if you are trying to make a jar with a specific purpose, but none of the spells you find have things you already have, take the ingredients from each spell you do have and make your own!
🌸some spell Jars have to be remade after a certain amount of time. Take note of when the spell jar no longer seems to be working and renew it every time that it expires.
🌙you can put anything in a spell jar. Anything that will fit.
🌸you can write words/sigils of protection on the outside part of the spell jar so nothing negative comes into the jar
🌙you don’t have to use a fancy jar. A box, a water bottle or anything that has a lid to close it will work perfectly fine.
🌸a spell jar can have multiple purposes all at once if you chose it to
🌙You can make your own spell Jars with your own meanings to them
🌸Spell jars can be used as an offering or a representation of a spirit companion or deity you may be worshiping
🌙you do not have to seal a spell jar with candle wax in order for it to work
🌸depending on the spell, you can open the jar and close it if you want.
