|A couple of years ago, a series of nearby home invasions were more than a little alarming. When it comes to my home and family, the gardening gloves come off and the Warrior Witch gets ready to stir up some real protective power. I like to do this by making a Witch bottle. Originally made of clay, Witch bottles were used to ward off attacks by Witches and malicious spirits, but we can use them as a way to protect home and family.
In an old canning jar, place some hair or fingernail clippings from everyone in the family and/or your pets, broken glass, rusty nails and pins, protective herbs, soil from your yard, salt, and rice to absorb negative energy. Seal the lid of the jar with black wax and say:
"Absorb all negativity and keep back those who mean harm.
I invoke protection with the words of this charm."
Tuck your Witch bottle away.
