Powders are not made to be breathed in, but sprinkled around your house. Do not allow children or animals to ingest. Please make sure you do not have a rection to such herbs and read the homeopathic herbal remedies page and the herbal correspondences page for more inormation.

The Making of Powders
Powders have long been an integral part of folk magic. They consist of ground herbs which are sprinkled to release their powers. A powder is an incense never burned, a sachet never worn.

Simply grind herbs as finely as possible. To save time you can buy ground herbs, but doing so cheats you of really getting in touch with them. While mortaring the herbs, during the whole long process, visualize... imagine.. .see your magical goal. The power lies within herbs and within ourselves. If we don't empower powders, incense or oils, if we don't accurately "program" them with our magical goals through visualization and concentration, such mixtures will have only slight effects. If you forget the empowerment, you might as well forget the magic.

Using Magickal Powders
The easiest method is to simply scatter them when and where you need their energies. Other methods are also available:

*Sprinkle the powder in a circle around you, beginning and ending in the East and moving clockwise. Sit within this circle and absorb the powder's energies.

*Those who work with crystals and stones can add powders to their rituals. Sprinkle the appropriate powder around the crystal (or crystals) as it lays on the altar to increase its power.

*Sprinkle powders around candles before being burned to boost their energies.

*Scatter a ritually appropriate powder over the altar before spells.

*Sprinkle on the altar in specific shapes to use as focal points for visualization: protection powder in pentagrams; love powder in hearts; psychic powders in circles. It doesn't matter if the powder remains in the shape for long. And so on, as your imagination teaches you.

But remember-do this solely for positive purposes, to affect your possessions, yourself or others from whom you've obtained permission. All manipulative magic is negative magic and will rebound on the magician.
One note: some powders, particularly those that contain dragon's blood, will stain carpets, bed sheets, clothing and other materials. Be aware of this when sprinkling.

Wishing Powder
2 parts Sage
1 part Sandalwood
1 part Tonka
In a lonely place, hold the powder in your right hand (if right-handed) . Feel its energies and visualize your wish with perfect clarity. Rouse the power with you and send it into the powder. When it is jumping with energy, fling it as far from you as you can. As the powder touches the Earth, it releases its energy and goes to work to bring your wish into manifestation



* The Great Outdoors (This could be your back yard, a park, or forest -- any
place where the wishing powder will land on the earth when you release it).
* Anything else you feel you need to personalize your wish.
You will need to craft the wishing powder ahead of time.
You can either do this at home in a Circle or, if you don't mind taking your mortal
and pestle along with you, you can make it outside where you plan to use it.
(This isn't too hard to do if you're staying in your own backyard).
* 2 parts sage * 1 part sandalwood * 1 part Tonka beans
Grind, mix, and empower.
If you're feeling adventurous, customize your wishing powder to the wish you'll be making.
(Example: Crushed rose petals for bringing love into your life).
Find a spot to make our wishes from.
Take a handful of the wishing powder and begin concentrating on your wishes.
(Please do not put yourself in danger to make a wish.
A wish is just as powerful whether it's made standing on a rock on the side of a steep
hill or standing in a field). Put your energy and wish into the powder you are holding.
When it feels like you can no longer hold the energy, let it fly.
As the powder settles to the ground, visualize your wishes joining with the Earth,
gaining power and strength.
As always, remember the Rule of Three when making your wish.
After putting the energy out there, it's impossible to call it back.
Remember the old saying, "Be careful what you wish for, you may get it."
If you are worried about where to get Tonka Beans (as needed for the above wishing spell).
You can do an easy search for them through any search engine to find them.
Vanilla Beans/pods are a Substitute .

Red candle. Red and gold talc. Patchouli, mandrake, musk. Increases your sexuality.



Money Powder Mix equal amounts of the following herbs together:
Chamomile, marigold, hyssop, jasmine, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, cinquefoil.
Combine all herbs with your hands empowering them with your energy and your need.
Sprinkle in your purse, wallet, mailbox, anywhere you might expect to receive money.
Rub It on your money before you spend it to call it back to you.
Create a money spell, using green candles and this money powder on your altar.

Well candle magic will work without herbs but the herbs give the magic a flavour, it add character to your workings and  sort of "tells" the  candle what to do along with your intentions.
