If you ask a witch what the most important tool they have is, more so than herbs, stones, or anything else, they’ll probably say jars. Not just for storage and organization, jar spells are a type of magick unto their own– any time you want something to have a residual effect, put that ish in a jar.
I’ve posted a couple references to jar spells before, like this couple who found what was most likely a sweetening jar on their rental property. Today’s Friday, a waning moon, and a day where I’m tasked with making a jar spell, so something to do with love, decreasing, and having a long-term effect is probably the most appropriate.
Love doesn’t just have to be of a romantic nature. Sure, it’s a day ruled by love deities, but love deities also have something big in common besides love and attraction– confidence. With the moon on the wane, this is probably a good time to work to decrease my self-criticism and encourage more self-love.
I have anxiety, which means I constantly worry about fucking up, or that other people secretly hate me. I don’t get out as much as I like, so I’m often down on myself for being “boring.” This is a good opportunity for me to make myself a pick-me-up to help squash some of the deeply critical, unactionable feelings that I struggle with now and then.
For this, I put together:
- Pink rose petals.
- Lavender buds.
- Valerian root.
- A tumbled moonstone.
- Some rose quartz chips.
- A couple pinches of my personal herb blend, as a signature.
I’d include a picture, but this jar honestly isn’t much to look at– picture a jelly jar filled with what looks like potpourri. I may decorate it at a later date, but, for now, this is good enough for me. It smells lovely (valerian root aside!), and the energies of the love-drawing and confidence-boosting herbs should do the trick!
Do you ever do magick for self-love? What are your favorite ingredients to use?
