To be used before and/or during all forms of magical rites. This formula boosts your reserve of personal power. Use at least four cups of water to simmer the following mixture:
Charge the herbs and spices while mixing them in a small bowl. As you mix them, say these or similar words:
"Flowers and spices
charged by the sun
help me ensure that
magic is done.
Open the path
to my energy
this is my will
and so mote it be!"
Simmer and let the herbs' powers fill the air as you do your magical working. (Remember to turn off the stove after your ritual.)
