You can use a variety of items such as crystals, stones, and herbs and arrange them around the candle to focus your intention further - make a simple circle of herbs around the candle. After meditating on your intention you can let the candle safely burn (check some fire safety rules first, for example never leave your candle unattended. Once the candle burns down the spell is completed. (yes you can burn it over multiple days)

Kitchen Witchcraft is a wonderful way to practice self-care and to bring positive energy and intention into your life. Self-care rituals are a great way to connect with your own energy and to create an environment of positivity. One of the great ways how to utilize kitchen ingredients are relaxing spell baths (if you do not have a bathtub, that is fine, you can do hand bath of foot bath instead)


Triple Herb Self Love Bath

  1. Make a fabric pouch with love and peace related herbs : lavender,chamomile and rose.

  2. Hold the pouch in your hand and focus your intention of self love and self care while holding it. Alternatively you can charge it overnight on your altar, if you have one.

  3. Put the pouch in a warm bath and visualize being surrounded by golden light as you bath.

  4. Once the bath is done, it is ok to simply throw the herbs away, or compost them if you have a compost.

You can also create a Magical Salve - follow a regular salve creation from herbalism, pick ingredients of the right correspondences and once the salve is finished, you can let it charge on your altar under a full moon.
