Make Your Own Magickal Pouches
Whatever your wish or desire, you can make one of these magickal boxes or pouches very easily. Just be sure to use the right herbs for the situation at hand. Many herbs are good at helping to treat a variety of situations, so experiment with a few different types. You may find that one herb works better for you than another. Follow your intuition and go with what feels right in your heart. Make sure you record the results in your Book of Shadows so that you remember what works well and what needs fine-tuning. You can try these ready-to-use pouch and wish box “recipes” to start.
THE LOVE POUCH
If you want to attract a new partner, take a large white handkerchief and in the center place a needle threaded with red cotton, a small seashell, a teaspoon of poppy seeds, and some chopped lavender. On a small piece of paper, write your name and the words “To attract a nice new lover.” Gather up all four corners and tie the pouch with a red ribbon. Squirt the pouch with your favorite perfume and charge it under the moon. Carry the love pouch with you every time you go out and that handsome stranger will make an appearance very soon.
THE MONEY POUCH
To boost your finances, take a piece of green material the size of a handkerchief and in the center place three coins (any currency is fine), a small magnet, and a handful of chopped or dried basil. Write on a piece of paper your name and the words “Money luck” or the exact amount of money you need. Gather the corners together and tie with a green ribbon. Charge the pouch and then hang it somewhere in your kitchen. Little sums of money should start to appear within a few days.
If you want to remove someone from your life forever, take a piece of white material and place in the center a handful of fresh or dried sage, a teaspoon of mugwort, and a whole garlic bulb. Write on a piece of paper the name of the person you want to be rid of and the word “Banish.” Gather the corners and tie the pouch with a purple ribbon. Charge the pouch and then hang it above your front door. To really make sure that the person never makes an appearance again, you can make three of these pouches and hang them around your home.
WISH BOX FOR GOOD HEALTH
If you are feeling under the weather or someone you know has had surgery, you can create a box to dispel all sickness and leave you or your friend feeling much better. Take your decorated box and place a photograph of the sick person inside, along with three sprigs of rosemary, a piece of oak bark, and a small piece of amethyst crystal. Write the name of the sufferer on a piece of paper, and then write the words “With this spell, I/he/she will be well” seven times. Fold the paper in half twice and place it in the box. Put the lid on and charge the box overnight. If the wish box is for someone else, give it to that person the very same day and tell them to keep it in a safe place until they feel better.
