Homemade Inks

One of the many ways for us artsy witches to use the natural world in our practice is by making our own inks. The act of collecting ingredients, creating the ink, filling it with your energy and intent, and using it in your craft is truly magical! You can add some special touches to your Grimoire, draw sigils, add to potions, create fabulous works of art, or just replace your chemical filled paint with a non-toxic, eco-friendly alternative that is safe for your kids!

Here are some base materials you can use to make inks and the color they generally make. Obviously there’s some variation with the final color depending on the material itself (more or less ripe and the inherent color variation between selections for example) but this will give you a general idea. Also note that the color of some materials can change over a period of time.

Berries

  • Red Cherry- Red or Light Pink
  • Pokeberry- Hot Pink
  • Red Rasberry- Medium Pink
  • Black Cherry- Pink/Purple
  • Black Rasberry- Light Purple
  • Blackberry- Purple
  • Huckleberry- Denim Blue
  • Buckthorn- Hunter Green

Nuts

  • Black Walnut- Rich Brown
  • Avacado Pits- Red/Pink
  • Peach Pit- Black
  • Almond Shells- Black

Other Options

  • Coffee
  • Black Bean
  • Sumac
  • Spinach
  • Red Cabbage
  • Turmeric
  • Jicama
  • Onion Skin
  • Wild Grape
  • Goldenrod


Experiment! This list is no where near exhaustive and there’s tons of combinations to explore. I will be posting about my process for making inks and providing some examples soon so stay tuned!

Tarot tip

During times of flux that entirely depend on you (exams, big decisions etc) don’t ask for clear predictions. Instead ask for advice.

At a turning point of “destiny” many options are equally likely or possible depending on your actions. So rather than asking for clarity from chaos ask for how you can best act within the opportunity to get your desired outcome or if the outcome is possible rather than what WILL happen.

Trust me on this your readings will be better off for it.
