Witches’ Bottles for Protection

FavoriteLoading ADD TO MY MINI GRIMOIRE

This one in the form of a bottle is ideal for house protections.

You will need:

  • One medium-sized bottle or jar
  • Altar Pentacle
  • Pieces of broken glass
  • Anything sharp (nails, thorns, pins, etc.)
  • Herbs (choose three or four of these:) basil, cinquefoil, garlic, hyssop, motherwort, nettles, rosemary, vervain.
  • Black cord or embroidery floss
  • Piece of parchment
  • Black Ink Or you can use a black ink pen or Fountain Pen or marker

Gather all of your materials on your altar. Cast Circle. Call Quarters. Ground and Centre. Place the bottle or jar on the pentacle. After each ingredient has been placed in the jar, write the following on the parchment with the fountain pen and black ink:

Light surrounds you,
Light protects you,
Light empowers you,
To make evil flee.

Fold the parchment in half three times and place in the jar. Cap and seal it. Wind the black cord or embroidery floss around the top of the jar seven times in a counter-clockwise direction. When you are finished put the jar in a place where it will protect the thing was meant to protect. If this jar was created to protect a home or outdoor space, you may wish to bury the jar near the area or front door.

Witch’s Bottle for Protection Against Enemies

To make a Witch’s Bottle, take a regular jar such as a 6 oz instant-coffee jar. Half fill it with sharp objects such as broken glass, old razor blades, rusty nails and screws, pins, needles, etc. When the jar is half-filled with these objects, urinate in it to fill it. If a woman is preparing her bottle, she might also want to get some menstrual blood into it. Now put the top on the jar and seal it with tape. It should then be buried in the ground, at least twelve inches deep, in an isolated spot where it can remain undisturbed. If you live in a city, then it will be worth a trip out of town to find some remote spot to bury it.

So long as the bottle remains buried and unbroken, it will protect you from any evil directed against you. This applies whether the evil is directed by an individual or a group of people. Not only will it protect you, but it will reflect back that evil on the sender(s). So the more he/she tries to harm you, the more he/she will be harmed her/himself.

Such a bottle should last almost indefinitely, but to be on the safe side, I’d recommend redoing the ritual one a year. With the present rate of housing development you never know when your bottle may be dug up or inadvertently smashed.

Witch’s Bottle for Protection

Gather a bottle or jar with a tight fitting lid, rosemary, needles and pins. Fill the jar with these items, saying as you work:

Pins, needles, rosemary and wine
In this witch’s bottle of mine,
Guard against harm and bad ill:
This is my will
So mote it be!

Visualize the items doing just that. When the jar is full, pour in some red wine. Then cap the jar and seal it with candle wax from a red or black candle. Bury it at the furthest most spot form your house on your property or place it in a place where it will not be seen.

Witches Bottle Spell for Protection

Used to neutralize the power of those who intend to do you physical harm, or hurt your reputation, or in any way pose a threat to your security.

You will need:

  • 4 tbsp Frankincense or Myrrh
  • 4 tbsp Black powdered Iron
  • 4 tbsp Sea Salt
  • 4 tbsp Orris-root Powder (or oak moss)
  • 1 white candle
  • 1 bottle with a cork or lid
  • Mortar and pestle
  • Parchment Paper
  • Black Ink or black ballpoint pen
  • Black thread

Mix the sea salt, orris-root powder, and the iron in a bowl. Then cut a piece of parchment to fit inside your bottle and write on it with black ink:

I neutralize the power of (name of adversary) to do me any harm.
I ask that this be correct and for the good of all.
So mote it be!

Roll up the parchment, tie it with a black thread to bind it, and place it in the bottle. Fill the bottle with the dry ingredients. Then take the white candle and while turning the bottle counterclockwise, drip the wax over the cork to seal it.

Last, secretly bury the bottle in a place where it will not be disturbed and no animals or people will dig it up.

This spell is like a genie in a bottle. It should never be unleashed or the power of the spell is lost.
