How to Make Magick Powders

You will need:


Dried Herbs

Essential Oils

Glitter or Colored Sand

Mortar and Pestle

Mason Jar

Small bottle with cork or container with lid


Magick Powders are dried herbs that have been ground up super- fine. They are sprinkled to release their power.   


In a mortar and pestle grind together the dried herbs.  Be sure to keep your magick goal firmly in your mind. If you skip this step the magick powder will not be programmed and the magick will be lost.


Pour the herbs in a mason jar with a lid, and then add a drop of two of essential oil. You may or may not decide to add essential oils to the recipe, but if you do, only use a drop or two, else you will make your powder sticky.  I like to add them because I love the scent and I find that the oils add an extra bit of power to the powder.  If you wish, you may also add extra–fine glitter or coloured sand to the mixture.  I like to add glitter because the sparkle seems to bring the mixture to life and gives it a visual punch.  Put the lid on the Mason jar and shake vigorously. Again, be sure to concentrate on the magickal purpose of your powder.


Once everything is thoroughly mixed together, pour into a clean glass bottle, cap and label.


To use your magick powder, hold a pinch in your hand and envision the outcome that you desire, once you “feel” your powder is filled with energy, you may burn it, release it to the winds, sprinkle it on the earth, or throw it into running water.


For candle magick, rub your spell or ritual candle with oil then roll it in the magick powder.

 Sprinkle around the perimeter of your magick circle before ritual or spell casting.

 Sprinkle on your Altar or draw runes or other magickal sigils with the powder to add extra power to your magick spells.  Sprinkle in specific shapes to use as focal points for visualization: protection powder in shells or pentagrams; love powder in hearts; psychic powders in spirals.


 Wishing Powder

 Herbs – Sage, Sandalwood, Vanilla Bean, Dandelion Whirly Seeds

Hold the powder in your hands, feel its energies and visualize your wish with perfect clarity. Summon the power within you and send it into the powder. When it is alive with energy, fling it as far from you as you can.  As the powder touches the Earth, it releases its energy and guides your wish into manifestation.
