Spell Jar Magick

Spell Jar Magick

Jar spells are incredibly handy and can be used for many intentions. Once you learn the basics you can use a jar spell for just about any magical goal.  Jar spells are also known as container spells or bottle magick.  A spell is sealed inside a jar or container; this is extremely popular in many traditions of folk magick. 


The idea of a jar spell or bottle spell is it keeps the magick (intention) concentrated and prevents the spell from disbursing before it has had time to manifest into reality.  The other nice thing about jar spells is that they are portable and can be discreet if they are tiny! You can take them just about anywhere!  Be creative with your jars, paint them, add sigils, charms, herbs, liquid, honey, etc – the possibilities are endless. 

Remember to think of things that give off the type of energy you are desiring to raise or attract. Use items that have personal meaning and use items that are associated with your particular intent. 

Example: If you want to attract love you would use roses and not hot peppers as those are typically used for banishing. 

The basics for any jar spell

Outline your intent. Be realistic. No wishing for unicorns. 

Select a bottle, jar, or container. (spice bottles work nicely)

Choose the contents for your jar – they should be associated with your intentions.

Fill your jar with those chosen items.

Seal it with candle wax.

Meditate on the intention.

Close the spell – which can include many ways; bury it, hide it, keep it on your altar or sacred space, toss it in moving water (I do not recommend this method as it’s littering!), dismantle it, or toss in the garbage off the property.  Whichever you do, will all depend on what you are trying to accomplish with your spell jar. 

Example: Burying it, you are seeking long-lasting protection, or you want the jar to be a ‘magnet’ so that it will continue to bring things to you. If you keep it on your altar, you can continue to burn candles or shake the jar to keep the spell ‘on-going’, you will also want to say a little chant to aid you in keeping this spell working for you. 

Now, let us create a 2021 Intentions Spell Jar – the ritual below represents love, protection, and good health.

Know your intent first! Then gather herbs, crystals, essential oils, symbols, or other items that will align with & help aid you to attract your intentions for 2021.



You will also need:

Jar with lid

Red Candle 

Matches or Lighter

Sage, Palo Santo, or Cedar Incense

Paper & Pen

Inside my jar is:

  • Rose Quartz: love, harmony in relationships, and self-love
  • Rosemary: home blessing, purification, cleansing
  • Cinnamon: healing, protection, speeds up spells, love
  • Bay leaf: healing, protection, wishes
  • Lavender: happiness, purification
  • Salt: protection, purification

I have also added a sigil that represents love and protection.

My intentions for this jar are: Love, protection & good health.

Begin by cleansing your materials with sage, cedar incense or palo santo.

As you add each item to your spell jar speak your intention out loud.

Examples: 

“I add this Rose Quartz which brings abundance in love and harmony to myself and in my relationships.”

“I add this Rosemary which brings with it, blessings, purification, and cleansing to my home and all who enter it.”

“I add cinnamon for healing, love, and protection.”

Etc. 

Once you are done layering your items, write each intention on a piece of paper and fold them three times (three represents growth, inspiration, guidance, and manifestation) ONE intention per paper.

Meditate on each intention for a few moments before moving onto the next.

Remember you always want to word things like they are happening in the present tense. As I stated above, my intentions are for love, protection, and good health, so here are some examples of the intentions inside my jar. 

“I am healthy both physically and mentally.”

“I give and receive love.”

“I am protected within my home and outside my home.”

“Every cell in my body radiates loving energy”

“I am safe & blessed”

Once you are done adding all your items, close your bottle and seal it with your red candle wax. Red can be used for love, protection, grounding, courage, strength, lust, passion, inspiration, and new beginnings.

Once your spell bottle is closed, do not open it again until your intention has come to fruition. 

Place your spell bottle where it makes the most sense to you. If it is a spell bottle for deflecting negative energy at the workplace, keep it near your workspace. If your spell bottle is for creating love and passion with your spouse, keep it near your bed on a nightstand.


If you feel your jar is not “working” give it some attention and revisit your jar. Give it a little shake and meditate over it. You can reburn candles on top of the jar as well. Say a little chant to “reignite” the intentions. 

If you have very different intentions, for example you want to bring abundance in finances, but you also want to deflect negative energies – you should do two different jars. If you want blessings and protection one jar will work just fine.

One way of “ending the spell” once you feel it has been successful, you can deconstruct the jar, take out nonflammable items and place them aside. All items that can be burned do so now. Once the ashes are cooled, toss into the wind, and thank the Universe. The nonflammable items can be cleansed to be reuse in another spell. 

Sigil.
