How To Make A Spell Jar Correctly

First off, what exactly is a spell jar? Well, a spell jar is basically a container that holds things such as herbs, oils, candles, etc. The purpose of these items is to cast spells.

The first thing you need to figure out is what you want to cast your spells for. This is important because you need to be laser focused on your intention for your spell to be powerful enough to meet your goals.

For example, if you want to attract money into your life, then you would not want to put an oil in your spell jar that attracts negative energy or is used in curses!

You should also consider whether you are making this spell jar for yourself or someone else. If it’s for yourself, then it’s easy to add items to connect the spell jar to your energy. If it’s focused on someone else, you have to go through the effort to find an item like hair, spit, or a small piece of jewelry that will connect to their energy.

The type of jar you use doesn’t matter much. It needs to be big enough to hold your ingredients, and it should be sealable with a cork and wax or a twist top. You may even want to get a glass jar so that you can see inside.

The ingredients you use can be personal and guided by intuition, or you can follow one of the recipes below. Either way, the ingredients should have you focus your intention. If you feel like an ingredient is all wrong, you may want to find a substitute or remove it entirely.

Protection Spell Jar

Making a protection spell jar is a great place to start. That’s because protection should always be the first step in your magical work.

This protection spell jar, written by myself, is simple, to the point, and customizable to fit your needs and intention. I’ve made this jar myself and ever since, I have felt so much peace and much safer in my own home. 

A protection jar spell is a form of psychic protection that is used to ward off negative energies such as curses, hexes, evil eye spells, etc.

It is very effective when cast upon yourself or someone else who needs protection.

This is done through the use of protective herbs, oils, and incense.

Honey Jar Spell

A honey jar spell is used to sweeten how someone sees us. This is most commonly used in romantic love spells, but can be used for friends, coworkers, parents, and anyone else that you want to like you. 

Honey is known for its healing powers, and it is believed that honey can heal wounds and illnesses. Honey is also used in traditional medicine to treat various ailments. This makes it a very powerful ingredient when it comes to spells.

Honey is used in attraction magic, meaning it can attract people, money, positivity, spirit guides, basically anything you want to bring towards you.

Additionally, honey is considered to be an aphrodisiac. It increases sexual desire and improves performance. That makes it a perfect ingredient for any romantic honey jar spells.

Money Spell Jar

After protection and love, the most common use for a jar spell is to attract abundance. A money jar spell is extremely useful in raising the vibes around you to drag money into your wallet.

There are many reasons why you might need more money. Maybe you’re looking to pay bills, save up for something important, or maybe you just want more cash flow. Whatever your reason, there is no better time than right now to create a money jar.

The basic idea is to add coins, gold objects, petitions, sigils, and whatever else to represent money and your desire for money into a jar. Then, make sure to shake that jar daily to keep the energy flowing and excited.

Obviously there’s more to it than that, which is why you should watch this video.

Sour Jar Spell

Sour jars are used to make someone’s life go sour. To be very clear, this is baneful magic used to punish people. It’s a curse jar. So if you’re uncomfortable with black magic, don’t use this spell!

This is a simple spell to cast on someone who has done something wrong. The person will feel bad and regret their actions. They won’t be happy until they’ve made things right.

This spell is perfect for punishing someone who breaks his/her promise or who is being abusive and toxic.

Love Spell Jar

Similar to a honey jar, a love jar spell will bring your desired lover to you. This jar is filled with ingredients associated with passion, love, harmony, and romance.

If you are currently single, a love spell will help you attract the perfect match. If you are already in a committed relationship, a love spell will strengthen your bond and help you to maintain your connection.

I’m sure you’ve heard all the warnings about love spells. Personally, I don’t place much stock in them. As always, follow your own ethics and consult your own gods before performing any magic.

To make this jar spell, you need these ingredients:

Love Spell Jar

Magic love potion in pink

Love spells are magical spells that help you to bring your lover back into your life, attract new love, or to make your relationship even more stable.


  • Rose petals
  • Simple syrup
  • Hibiscus petals
  • A sigil with your intention
  • 1 red candle
  • 1 pink candle
  • 1 green candle


If you don't know how to make a simple syrup, follow these instructions. Put the rose petals and hibiscus petals in your spell jar. Add your sigil to the jar, folded as small as possible. Top the jar off with your simple sugar, then seal.

Then, melt wax from your red candle over the top of the bottle. Follow with wax from the pink candle. Finish with wax from the green candle. Put the candles somewhere safe and whisper your intention over them, then leave them to burn out completely. Let the wax dry, and then leave your jar on a sunny window.

Why these colors? 

The color red has been used throughout history to represent love, passion, power, strength, energy, courage, blood, and protection.

Pink has been used since ancient times to represent purity, innocence, femininity, and love. The color pink is associated with romance, affection, and beauty.

Those two colors are pretty easy to understand. But why green?

Green is the color of creation, of fertility, of abundance. It calls upon the power of the earth to bring you yours desires. If you want to create an energetic profile full of the possibility for love, you need that generative, creative energy there too!

Self Love Jar Spell

If you’re less concerned with romance and more concerned with self care, stress reduction, and self love, then this jar spell is for you.

You’ll find yourself feeling happier, healthier, and calmer after casting this spell. You’ll also have a better understanding of what it means to take good care of yourself.

Self love is something we should all practice. We need to learn how to love ourselves first before we can truly love someone else.

We all have our flaws and weaknesses. But when we love ourselves, we become better versions of ourselves. When we love ourselves, we feel confident, happy, and healthy.

When we love ourselves, we don’t let anyone bring us down. We don’t let negative thoughts take control of our minds.

We don’t let fear stop us from doing what we want to do.

When we love and accept ourselves, we become stronger than ever before.

We become unstoppable!

If you want to harness that power right now, check out this self love jar spell.

How To Properly Dispose Of A Spell Jar

There are a few ways to dispose of magical trash. Remember that everything is magical, and so even your trash bin is sometimes the proper place to dispose of magical material. 

If you don’t feel comfortable throwing out a spell jar, you can bury it in your garden and plant protective herbs over it. You probably shouldn’t bury glass, though. 

Some people take the elements of the spell out of the jar and dispose of them in whatever way seems best. 

A jar used for a spell that has been disassembled can be cleansed by leaving it out, unsealed and in direct sun and moonlight for a full month. If you’re extra cautious, label the jar so it’s only ever used for the same purpose it was used for previously.

What Happens If I Open My Spell Jar

As noted above, opening a spell jar is fairly normal when you’re done with the spell. If you open it before you’re finished, though, you probably will have to redo the spell completely.

When you open a spell jar you release the intention sealed within. Try not to do this until your spell is completed.

Can I Reuse A Spell Jar

As stated above, yes, you can. More cautious witches will write the purpose of a spell jar so that they never cross a love spell in a sour jar, but if it’s been cleansed in the sun and moon for a full month that’s not necessary.

As always, be as cautious as you feel you need to be!
