Nightmare Jar Recipe

Here is a fantastic nightmare jar that has been of tremendous use for me and my friends and family.  I will say this - it only lasts about a year before you will need to make a new one.


1 small jar you can seal

~8 in. Black Yarn

3-10 strands of hair from the person you are trying to protect

8-20 sharp objects like rusty nails, broken glass, etc.




Rose Petals (optional)

Bay Leaves




Start by placing the hair into the vessel. This tricks whatever is causing the nightmares into the jar. Then put in the sharp objects to poke and prod the negativity and trap it in the jar once and for all.

Next, put in your herbs. Mint and lavender are meant to bring restful and calm sleep, and the bay leaves are meant for cleansing and keeping evil at bay. The rose petals will bring dreams of love. 

SIDE NOTE: In my experience, the rose petals brought a lot of insanely sexual dreams.  So take that and do what you want with it.

Now add about half of your salt. The black yarn absorbs the negative energies. Wrap it up in a little ball and drop it into the jar, visualizing the negativity being sucked into a black hole. Pour the remaining salt into the jar and seal it with wax from your candle.

Feel free to write inscribe protective runes or sigils into the jar with the sharpie if you so choose.

Charge the nightmare jar in the light of the moon, and keep near the bed. A window sill is best as it will need to be recharged from time to time.

Hope this helps everyone - if you have any questions or comments, let me know!

Spring Witchy Recipes

Here are some recipes I have made or have been trying out for spring!

Three Flower Sugar -

  • 1 oz lavender
  • 1 dried rose, just the petals
  • 1 oz dried chamomile or honeysuckle

Grind in a mortal and pestle, add ½ cup of sugar and grind until powder fine. Store in pink jar for love spells, self care spells, and to amplify the properties of the flowers.

Uses: Sprinkle on sugar cookies for Beltane rituals, stir into an herbal tea, sprinkle over offerings for the fae, use in a self care spell jar, use in spells to sweeten relationships or communication, etc.

Floral Tincture -

Great for making drinks, baking, or use in potions for Spring celebrations.

  • equal parts dried lavender, honeysuckle, chamomile, elder flowers, roses etc (I used chamomile, elder flowers, and honeysuckle.)
  • 1 jar (dark jar if possible)
  •  just enough vodka or other 180 proof alcohol to just cover the flowers, maybe ½ in over the dried materials
  1. Place flowers into jar, cover with alcohol and shake vigorously.
  2. Store in a dark cool place.
  3. Shake periodically
  4. let steep for 4 weeks or more
  5. Strain through a fine mesh strainer/coffee filter or muslin cloth, squeeze excess out of the flowers.
  6. Strain through coffee filter or muslin cloth once more and bottle in a glass bottle/jar. 

 Uses: Use in cooking recipes like you would vanilla extract or other baking flavorings, use an eye dropper to drop into sparkling water/tea for a refreshing drink, use like bitters in a martini recipe, use for potions or spells, etc.

Lavender Meyer Lemon Mint Tea -

From the book “infuse” 

  • 8 sprigs of fresh mint
  • 4 sprigs dried lavender
  • 4 Meyer lemon peels
  • 30 oz of water

Combine all ingredients in a pitcher in the refrigerator over night (for at least 10 hours). A relaxing and refreshing drink for  all spring celebrations. :) Also can be used for cleansing and purifying properties to boost your Spring Cleaning, from the inside out. 

Spells for Money, Wealth, and Prosperity

sunlight confidence spell jar

This is a powerful spell jar recipe for witches that need a confidence boost. Whether within the context of self-love and body acceptance, or if you need a little boost for a first date or a job interview, this jar will be an essential magick tool. You will need:

- A jar that seals well

- Ginger root (adventure, personal confidence, prosperity)

- Honeysuckle (strong confidence, intuition)

- Thyme (courage, strength)

- Gold glitter (power, radiance, happiness)

- Citrine (enlightenment, optimism, warmth)

- A small lock of your hair or other magical taglock to represent you

Allow the jar to charge in the sunlight as often as possible. The citrine in the jar will retain that energy and fill your space with an aura of confidence, self-love and courage.

Cleansing & Calming Salt

Here is a quick recipe I made for some salt to cleanse my crystals/spell jars and also charge them with some calming energy at the same time!


  • Salt (cleansing & purifying)
  • Lavender (calming, relieves anxiety)
  • Chamomile (calming, soothing)
  • Rosemary (anti-depressive)

Simply mix the salt and herbs (I used a mortar and pestle but you could just mix in a bowl) and use however you like to use salt for cleansing. Feel free to substitute for herbs with similar correspondences, or for whatever intent you would like the salt to have!

Bonus tip!

Add to a spray bottle for an easy way to cleanse and calm whatever space you’re in with a quick spritz!

Spell to Connect to forest! Please ❤

Awesome! Okay!

Inner Forest Jar - 

This recipe is to bring to mind the forest and can be used as a substitute for a forest.

Ingredients - 

  • 1 cup Dirt or craft sand
  • 1 pine cone/bunch of needles and/or an acorn
  • 1 tsp river water or purified water
  • 1 inch of moss (wild-crafted, or craft supplies)
  • a smooth stone, preferably from a forest
  • 1 jar
  • twine (for aesthetics)
  • 1 candle and/or incense that reminds you of the forest 

Step 1 - Prepare your ingredients and create your space for magic, however your normally do it. Then light your incense and a candle. Play soothing forest sounds, maybe add some rain (check out Rainy Mood).

Step 2 - Think of being in the forest, and add your dirt/sand by hand into your jar. Feel the earth in your hands. Smell the dirt. Next add a few drops of your water and smell the way the dirt changes scents (just enough to get it damp, not to make mud).

Step 3 - Add your stone, and then place your moss on the stone. think of the boulders and trees you see with moss growing on them in the forest. Add a pine cone or needles, smell the sap, and see the trees. Add an acorn and think of the way life grows in the forest. 

Step 4 - Pass the jar through the incense or over the candle 3 times. Chant or envision the jar turning into your forest. This jar is a safe place for a forest to grow. Place the lid on the jar and wrap the twine around the top three times, sealing the forest inside of the jar. 

Now you have a mini forest in a jar! Use as a mediation method or to bring the energy of the forest to spells or altars. Open the lid and breath in the scent of the forest to calm down. If anything sprouts, such as the pine cones or acorn, or the moss grows, you can return them to the forest the next time you visit, or plant outside/in a pot.

Thank for the suggestion!

Request:  Hi could I request a batsis story? She is Bruce’s biological child but she didn’t become a vigilante so they tend to ignore her (not on purpose but they’re always busy with a case). She goes away for university and when none of them show up to her graduation she decides to cut ties with them.  After a few years (maybe 3 or 4) she gets married to a wealthy businessman and they had a kid(s) together. The batfam didn’t realize that she cut ties with them because of all their cases they thought that she was still at school, when they realize that they haven’t seen her in a while they try to find her. The end is up to you.

Pairing:  Batfam x reader, Ryan(oc)x reader

Summary: You are the forgot Wayne. Forgotten not on my by the public but your own family as well. If you aren’t worth remembering to them then they aren’t worth it to you.

Words Count: 2,750 My longest fic to date!

Genre: Angst

Notes:  So I’ve seen a few fics with a request a lot like this, so if this fic is too much like a fic you have written please tell me and I will take it down. I don’t want to take any credit away from any other amazing author.

The reader in this is a little older than Jason


“Alfred, when will daddy be home?” 5 year old you asks as the old butler tucks you into your bed.

Alfred’s face falls a bit, but it doesn’t last as he saves face and gives you a reassuring smile.

“You must be mistaken, your father is home mistress (y/n).”

“Then why don’t I see him ever? Why doesn’t he tell me goodnight?” you ask curiously. Back then you were just innocent and naive, you didn’t know why your father was never around, why you weren’t aloud to go into his library, what the big bangs coming from below the house were. You couldn’t explain to your teachers why you never saw your daddy for more than an hour a week if you were lucky or why your butler came to your open houses not your father.  You couldn’t explain why the other boy that lived in the house treated you like you had the black plague.

You see Alfred become physically defeated, “I’m sorry mistress, there are some things even this wise old man doesn’t know.”

You are let down by the answer but you didn’t let Alfred see it.

“It’s OK Alife! no one could know everything” you stress in your little childlike way.

Alfred smiles, “Goodnight (y/n).”

Pickles! Everybody loves pickles (well most of you do) and they are ridiculously easy simple to make at home. So, what do you need?

  1. 6 cucumbers
  2. 6-7 ½ pint jars
  3. 3 cups white vinegar
  4. 3 cups water
  5. 3-4 tbsp of salt
  6. 1 garlic bulb (optional)
  7. your choice of seasoning if desired. I use dill seed (hence how you get dill pickles) and husband likes them hot so we use red pepper flakes too. Some people like to add celery seed or whole black peppercorns too. It’s up to you really.

You’ll also need a sharp knife and a cutting board and a large pot for canning if you plan to preserve them, but again that step is optional provided you think you can eat 6 jars of pickles in about 4 weeks. I know I can but that’s neither hear nor there. 

This is going to be image heavy because I let Elusive Tumblr Dad take the pictures so bear with me.

Step One: Wash Your Shit

Be sure to gently scrub your cucumber (*polite cough*) and check for any irregularities and bruising. One of mine turned out to be all soft (*cOUGH*) so I had to pitch it :( If you have store bought ones be sure to get any waxy film off. If they’re home grown or farmer’s market just make sure they’re clean yea? No one likes a dirty pickle. (Okay I promise you no more implied dick jokes from now on. It’s just good clean pickle fun from here on out. Honest.)

anonymous asked:

My girlfriend has been having nightmares and i was wondering if theres any spell i could do to help with her nightmares or any general protection spell for her?

There are many general protection spells, so for that I would definitely recommend just whatever works best for you/her in general, but as far as nightmares goes, I definitely have a few suggestions for that!

Good luck! I hope they get better for her! <3
