With the right ingredients and a bit of creativity, you can make your own herbal sprays to bring your natural witchy practices to life.


What Is A Magical Herbal Spray?

There is no catch in this one, it is what is sounds like it is a spray made of herbal-infused water sprayed in the air or elsewhere for magical intentions. It is mostly used for cleansing and protection of either a person or a space in Wicca or green witchcraft.

Misting a space with cleansing herbal spray is a great alternative for smoke-free space cleansing.


Tools and equipment needed

Natural witch or green witch practices will often require tools and equipment that you may not have access to. Fortunately, making your own herbal sprays is easy and accessible to anyone who can find the right ingredients. While you can certainly make the spray ingredients ahead of time, it’s best to have them on hand ready to use as needed.



You will need:

  • A glass or stainless steel bottle with spray head - Make sure the bottle you use is glass or stainless steel. Plastic bottles will not only leach chemicals into the herbs, but can be also negatively effected by exposure to pure essential oils.

  • A funnel - If you don’t already own one, make sure you get a funnel that’s large enough to hold your ingredients. A smaller funnel will make the process much more frustrating.

  • A dropper - Helps with the right dosages of essential oils, if you are using them.

  • A scale - If you can’t measure anything accurately, you will waste ingredients. A scale allows you to weigh out ingredients accurately, so there’s no guesswork involved. Alternatively you can use measuring cups.

  • An appropriate sized bowl - The bowl you use will depend on the recipe.

  • Herbs and Essential oils


Special Tip : Instead of using normal water you can cold-infuse your herbs overnight in moon water. This is especial great for meditation and relaxation sprays.





Steps for creating herbal sprays

Once you have all of your ingredients on hand, it’s time to create your herbal spray. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you get started.

  • Measure out your ingredients with a scale or with measuring cups.

  • Heat up a pot of water and boil the herbs for about 30 seconds to help infuse the herbs, let it cool down completely before pouring it into your spray bottle.

  • Pour the infusion into your container using funnel.

  • Add the liquid ingredients like essential oils and shake or stir.

  • Hold the finished spray bottle with your hands and charge it with your intention, optionally you can say a prayer, blessing or a dedication to a specific spirit or deity.

  • Store in a cool, dark place.

Extra tip : You can leave the bottle on your altar 24 hours prior to your planned use to extra-charge it.
