My first spell jar was tricky, as I chose a container too small for its contents. The honey made a colossal mess, I had to break the cinnamon sticks to get the coins in, and then I struggled with the candle dripping, but I managed to make it work in the end!
It’s a simple money-related one, as I had some anxieties about being able to afford everything going on in our life.
My second spell jar was my Hekate jar, done as part of a witchy self-initiation. It has a little bit of everything I love in it, including a snake ring I bought years ago that is very dear to me. It was also my first attempt at using sealing wax instead of a candle, so it’s a bit messy, but I love it.
I love the sealing wax. I don’t do alot of spell jars. I do use jars to salt around the house occasionally if I feel the need, just little salt jars on each corner of the windowsills.
The only time I did a “proper” spell jar was for an intensive protection. I put my hair, black salt, obsidian crystal, pinprick of my blood, then sealed it with cork, black wax and a pin through the cork. An old hoodoo spell from an old book of mine. It worked I must say. Never took a photo though, and now it’s buried. Your spell jars look lovely
Spell jars are so easy and versatile - I’ve made my fair share! I don’t have any pictures handy, but I’ve made spell jars for peaceful sleep, wealth, self love, and protection. I carry a protection spell jar in my purse, so I have it wherever I am. I made one for my sister, and I made several spell packets - folded paper like an envelope - that contained ingredients like a spell jar.
It was my favourite ring for a long time. But when I was thinking about how the witch initiation ceremony called for something of importance… I thought of how I’d been called to find this ring, spent so long finding the right ring, and my attachment to it over the years. And I thought, well, I’m sure it was Hekate who brought me to this cherished item, so to the Hekate jar it will go as acknowledgement, and we will share it.
