Simple Protection Spells
There are many different protection methods in witchcraft you can utilise.
They can be as simple as hanging protective wards throughout your home or you can conduct regular spells and rituals, depending on your needs. Having some form of magickal protection set up is recommended to assist in preventing your energy from being drained by outside forces and maintaining a peaceful mind. We’ve compiled a list of our favourite methods of casting simple protection spells below.
Herbs with protective properties are necessary for effective spellwork. Some herbs have protective correspondences for a specific circumstance, for example; Chamomile drives away nightmares while you sleep, Mugwort protects from psychic attacks, and Bladderwrack offers travel protection. Black Witches Salt is extremely useful for protection and strongly recommended for casting a protective circle during spellwork and even around your bed. Keep your apothecary stocked up and ready to go so you're always prepared to craft powerful spells - Tragic Beautiful offers a range of protective herbs here.
PROTECTION MOJO SPELL BAGS
The most simple method of creating a protection spell is by creating a mojo spell bag with protective herbs and crystals that can be carried with you at all times, placed beside your bed or inside your pillow for protection while you sleep. Mojo spell bags are useful until you can no longer smell the herbs.
PROTECTION SPELL JARS
Another effective method is protection spell jars. Simply sound cleanse with an altar bell or smoke cleanse with incense inside the jar, layer with protective ingredients including herbs and crystals. Egg shells are also a fantastic protective ingredient. The reason for this is because egg shells protect baby birds/foetus' from outside forces and threats in the wild, so this same theory can be applied into your practice by using its protective correspondence to ward off malicious spirits, intent and unwanted energies. You can buy pre-crushed egg shells or pull the egg out of its shell and grind the egg shell into a fine powder using a mortar and pestle.
PROTECTIVE SYMBOLIC WARDS
There are various symbols that can act as independent wards such as pentagrams, wind chimes, nazar (evil eye), skulls, ravens and cats. You can further enhance its protective effect by enchanting it with oils and herbs. For example, I have a Hanging Willow Branch Pentagram hung in my bedroom that I've lightly enchanted with Lavender Oil, Agrimony, Catnip and Peppermint. This helps protect me from unwanted energies and inducing peaceful sleep.
PROTECTIVE CRYSTALS, NECKLACES & VIALS
Set up crystals with protective properties throughout your home or to use in spellwork such as Obsidian, Smoky Quartz and Black Tourmaline. Crystal necklaces not only are a beautiful accessory to wear, they can also be helpful for protection if the crystal has protective correspondences - its properties can be further enhanced through enchantments as well. If you'd like a protection necklace that's ready to use, check out our Black Tourmaline Crystal Rough Necklace.
Vial necklaces are perfect for creating a simple protection spell with - simply add protective oils, herbs & crystals into the vial and you have a gorgeous protection amulet to wear. Our Dead Crown Vial Necklace and Kiss of Death Vial Necklace are great for this method.
Teas are a fantastic way to bring a lil' bit of kitchen magick into your daily ritual. Choose a tea blend or create your own with protective herbs that are safe to ingest. Keep your intention in mind while brewing and sipping your tea. Our Guardian Angel Queen of Cups Tea is a delightful hand-created protection blend that comes with a card containing a ritual for use while brewing your tea to aid you in your spellcraft.
