How to Witchcraft: Top 5 Witchcraft Supplies for Every Witch
What was the first thing you asked your very first witch friend, and why was it "What supplies do I need to buy??"
Don't worry, we all have been there! It is all overwhelming, scary, and it can appear a little costly at times. It doesn't always have to be, though sometimes it is worth it to save up the pennies for that beautiful witchy subscription box, or a new altar cloth. I remember keeping a little list going on my phone, and whenever I would read a new ritual or article, I'd add every crystal, every candle, every everything! But fear not, after years of practicing within my own coven and my own practice, I've narrowed it down to the Top 5 Witchcraft Supplies for Every Witch:
Whether you’re using them to set the ambiance, create a magical atmosphere or as part of your spell casting rituals, candles are essential for any practitioner of witchcraft. Different colors and scents can be used to evoke different energies, so choose wisely! I have found that seven day candles are GREAT for continual magick work!
2. Herbs & Oils:
Herbs and oils are often used in spells to attract love, money, protection and other desired energies. They can also be used as part of a cleansing ritual or for anointing objects with their magical properties. Essential oils are commonly used in many different forms of witchcraft as they have powerful healing, energetic and spiritual properties. Depending on the blend you choose, essential oils can be used to anoint candles, purify spaces or add scent to spell. Herbs are great to either burn in a cauldron over some charcoal, or to bury into the earth. It all depends on the intent of your magick.
3. Altar Supplies:
An altar is a place of spiritual practice that many witches use to focus their energy and to prepare for rituals. Depending on your beliefs, you can use traditional religious items such as incense, a chalice or athame (ritual blade). You can also add crystals, tarot cards and other personal items that have special meaning to you.
No witch’s magical supplies would be complete without a cauldron. Cauldrons are used in rituals, spellcasting and magical practice of all kinds. They can also be used to hold burning embers or steaming hot water for scrying (divination) practices. I have found that cast iron cauldrons are best and last forever!
Herbs have been used in witchcraft for centuries and are still widely used today. Fresh or dried herbs can be used for different spells, rituals and spiritual practices. Commonly used herbs in witchcraft include lavender, rosemary and sage. They can also be added to spell components such as poppets, mojo bags and incense blends. Storing your magical supplies in one place will not only make them easier to access but also keep them safe and away from moisture or direct sunlight.
