Apple & Spice Protection Spell

Apple & Spice Protection Spell

In  autumn our thoughts turn to pumpkins & ghostly visitors.  To make sure the ones who visit you are friendly.  Chant this spell on the full October moon.  Follow the recipe and make your charm.  The one below is mine  I encourage you to alter until it is your own and your energy permeates it and the air that surrounds you.


1 cup of apple cider

1 spoonful honey

3 sticks of cinnamon

9 cloves

Combine together and warm on stove or over fire and as you stir chant ” Apple strengthen me,  honey sweeten life, cinnamon protect me, cloves cleanse me“.  As soon as it is fragrant remove from heat and pour into clay or wooden crock.  On a full moon night- chant 3 times your charm of making then take a small sip then take your potion & anoint your entrances- chant 3 more times  and  anoint the four corners of your property ending with your charm 3 more times


“By the power of three

I ask of thee

To join

with me

bless  home and

garden with honey &


let kindness

welcome good

let those

with evil

flee, as they
