There is a long history of honey being used in spells. Honey and other sweeteners such as molasses and maple syrup are used in spells as in sympathetic magic using sweetener as a medium can help to make a person ‘sweeter’ such as more kind or harmonious.
A honey jar spell can be used for different reasons such as to mark a special occasion with a loved one such as an anniversary.
Honey Jars and Hoodoo
Hoodoo is a form of folk magic which is African American in its heritage. It is a form of spirituality which was developed out of the slave trade. Hoodoo can involve the use of botanical and mineral materials such as herbs, bones, roots and animal parts. A Honey jar love spell is a common form of Hoodoo magic.
Love spells are a popular form of magic. This spell is designed to focus not on a specific target, but to attract love and loving people into your life. This is a very ethical way of performing a love spell, and by not making the target specific, it is more likely you will attract the right person into your life, instead of who you think is the right person.
A Hoodoo Honey Jar Love Spell
What You need:
- A jar- choose a glass or clay jay or container with a lid which fits fully
- Honey (If you are vegan you can substitute a honey for a vegan alternative such as molasses, vegan sugar or maple syrup)
- Pens or paints to decorate the jar with
- Roots, herbs or dried flowers- Choose any or a mixture of the following: cardamom, cinnamon, red pepper, vanilla bean, basil, bay leaves, jasmine, lavender, nutmeg, violet. Individual herbs can be found here. Alternatively, you can use a spell mix such as this Attract Love herbal spell mix.
- Parchment paper
- Pink candle
Start by making sure that your jar is cleansed. A simple way of doing this is to soak it in salt water then rinse and dry it.
You can then decorate it. Use colours of pink and red to represent love. You can draw symbols on it, or if you wish write on words which you associate with love.
Next, take your pen and paper and write the following love spell:
With this spell I attract to me
The person with whom I am meant to be
With this spell I cast tonight
A love will come, that for me is right
Place the paper in the jar, add your chosen roots, herbs or dried flowers, then fill with honey or your chosen sweetener.
Place the pink candle on top of your honey jar and light it.
Place the honey jar on your altar, or a private spot in your home. Recharge the spell regularly by placing another candle on it and lighting it, or place a tea light on top of it.
