Easy Accidental Magick

Alright, guys, it’s the blog you have all been waiting for. The sneaky ways I get myself to practice witchcraft daily in my crazy schedule. So, if you’re always¬†short on time like I am, here are my favourite ways to get my witch on.

Shower Magick.

Although I consider myself a bath witch….I rarely get a chance to take a bath myself. Mainly, I just help make products for other people. So, I have started to practice shower magick anytime I take a shower. Which, is often because I’m a mean CLEAN machine. Herbal shampoos and conditioners can be a life saver for a witch short on time. My favourite to use for magick is Nature’s Gate Herbal Shampoo and Conditioner. It smells like a Wiccan shop and is chock full of herbs for all kinds of magickal goodness throughout the day…and the smell lingers for sooo long. Every time I flip my hair it’s like a magickal burst. Filled with herbs like Sage, Lavender, Thyme & Rosemary…it’s a protection and purification dream! You can purchase the shampoo on Amazon here…but I warn you. It’s more pricey than your normal shampoo. Which is why I had to stop buying it. But–it’s still my favorite shampoo.

The shampoo I currently switched to I picked up the Grocery Store for $1.99. It’s not the best quality shampoo for my type of hair (I have dry, frizzy hair when it’s not freshly washed) but it’s certainly good for magick. I picked up Sauve Professional’s Rosemary & Mint shampoo. Rosemary & Mint are great for protection and purification magick so it’ll do the same thing as the Nature’s Gate…you just won’t have as many magickal hair flip bursts. ūüėČ You can purchase this shampoo on amazon here, but note it is quite overpriced. It’s available at most grocery stores, I’ve found.

So, when I put shampoo in my hair I always say a little spell. When I put the shampoo/conditioner in my hand, I draw it in a triple goddess )o(, because I’m a product whore and use way¬†too much constantly….with no shame. While doing this, I ask the Goddess for protection until my next shower; I say something along the lines of this. Usually, I just babble…the Goddess knows that I can never stick to a script. hahaha.

Goddess please protect me with your light,
Cleanse me now with all your might.
Keep me safe within’ your arms.
Until my next shower shield me from harm.
So mote it be.

Then I slather that baby into my hair and wash it out, visualizing all negativity from my body and soul washing down the drain along with it. It’s as easy as that!¬†

Herb Food Magick

One thing a lot of witches forget is that when you’re cooking all the herbs you use are good for different things. Basil is amazing for protection, mental clarity, and coming into money, Rosemary is kick-ass at protection, Thyme is great for courage, Black Pepper¬†can protect from evil, Salt is always great¬†for purification, Cinnamon loves to help by drawing in business and prosperity, Red Pepper Flakes¬†are a great offensive tactic when you have visitors over for jinxing an enemy, ¬†Oregano can help to bring happiness, joy, & protection. And those are just the ones I know off the top of my head. There are HUNDREDS of other uses for these herbs, and tons of different uses for the others you have in your kitchen.
Pro-tip;¬†If you find that you have some extra time on your hands, pick up some $1 file label stickers at the dollar store and do some research for the herbs in your kitchen. Write down what they can be used for and stick the stickers right onto your herbs. A quick cheat-sheet for when you’re making your meals!

Also, it’s always great to give a little of what you make as an offering for your guiding deity. So, keep a small plate to the side and share!

Another great way to sneak some magick into your kitchen is with a KITCHEN WITCH! In Germany, Norway, and some parts of the UK, it’s believed that keeping a witch doll in your kitchen will bring you good luck and ward off evil spirits. Not to mention, they’re so darn cute!¬†

Coffee Magick

What kind of a college witch would I be if I didn’t know a little coffee magick?
Coffee in itself is magickal. Bet you didn’t know that, did ya? That big ole cup of Joe keeping you up just long enough to finish studying for your finals is great for keeping peace of mind-no…really…I’m not just saying that to make us feel better about our addiction, that’s really one of its magickal properties. Coffee is also believed to have the power to get rid of negative thoughts/blockages you may have built up spiritually inside you and help to ground you. Gnarly!
Additives to your coffee can help you with different things as well. Here’s a little mini chart:

Café Mocha: Romance, Grounding.
Caramel Macchiato: Prosperity, Protection, Grounding.
Pumpkin Spice Latte: Prosperity & Attracting Money!
Peppermint Mocha: Ridding of negative energy, grounding, and helping with love!
Hazelnut Macchiato: Protection & Grounding, Warding off evil spirits.
Vanilla Iced Coffee: Love & Protection. Energy Renewal.
Coffee with Milk & Sugar: Protection & Prosperity in love.
Coffee with Milk: Prosperity, Protection, Grounding.
Coffee with Soy Milk & Sugar: Success in love.
Coffee with Soy Milk: Bringing Forth Success.
Coffee with Coconut Milk & Sugar: Remaining faithful in love.
Coffee with Coconut Milk: Protection.
Coffee with Almond Milk: Wisdom and healing.
Coffee with Almond Milk & Sugar: Wisdom in love.

While sipping, visualize what you want your coffee to do for you based on the list above! These are all my own spin on what the herbs and coffee would do for each other in an ideal situation. If you have different theories…let me know!

Jewelry Magick

The easiest way to sneak some magick into your life is using jewelry. As most witches know, crystals have different meanings and metaphysical beliefs for what they do for you….but what if I told you-you don’t always need a crystal for everything. If you have a special piece of jewelry that you hold dear to you, all you have to do to enchant it is charge it with your intentions. Want it to be a money drawing necklace? Run it through cinnamon incense smoke. Want it to be a protection bracelet? Run it through protection incense smoke. And so on, & so forth. If you envision and believe the piece of jewelry will help you….it will. It always will.
Alright, well, that’s enough for today. If you all want to know more easy accidental magick tricks, just let me know and I’ll think about making another blog!
