Witch’s Bottle

I have been wanting to make a Witch’s Bottle for some time now. I finally made one this week. I saw a picture on Pintrest that someone made one out of an old light bulb and I wanted to try and do that. It’s a lot more tedious than I though. I tried take the bottom of the light bulb off to get the wires out but they make it seem a lot easier than it really is. After a few minutes of trying and failing, I moved on and found a different bottle to use.

I remembered I had bought a cute little bottle at a thrift store a while back that didn’t have a stopper. It was perfect.

Usually witch’s bottles have one specific focus, but mine had a few. I didn’t feel like making a bunch of different ones for the things I wanted to attract. These were part of my full moon intentions (even though I made this bottle on Monday, it still has some left over moon power. More waning gibbous I guess.) Here are the items I decided to put in my bottle and their meaning. These items have many meanings, but these are what they represent for me.

baby's breath

Baby’s Breath: Happiness

cedar shavings

Cedar Bark Shavings: Purification

Himalayan Pink Salt: Self love

A black feather I found: Protection and to repel negative energy

A Dried Rose (only used one petal, crushed): Love

Lavender: Sleep, Clarity of thought

Some gemstones. I only use the bottom three because they are they only ones that would fit into the bottle.

First two (that I didn’t use) are Clear Quartz and I believe Sodalite.

Bottom Three (that I did use):

Brown Zebra Jasper: Writer’s stone, good for writer’s block, motivation, and meeting goals.

Blue Quartz: Assuages fear, clams the mind, inspires hope, promotes understanding your spiritual nature, peace & tranquility, amplifies power.

Adventurine: Opportunity, luck, prosperity.

Now I’m not 100% sure that those are the identifications of the bottom four stones because they were given to me a long time ago. That’s just what I believe they are based on internet research. If you know for a fact they are something different, please let me know.

Salt: Healing, protection, purification

Crushed egg shells (Cascarilla): Prosperity

After I gathered everything that I wanted to use, I began putting it all into the bottle. I used a  funnel to pour in the salt, Cascarilla, cedar shavings, lavender, HPS, and crushed rose petals first. I then added the gemstones, then the feather, and baby’s breath. As I added everything in, I focused on the intention that each piece represented.

When everything was in, I found a perfect black stone that I had to add as a stopper. I’m not sure what kind of stone it is, but it worked perfectly. I then light a beeswax candle and sealed in the stone. Here is the finished bottle:
