This workshop falls on Imbolc and Brigid's Day, so we are going to honour both the Sabbat, Goddess, and the energies they are inviting in for us. Not only will you be crafting your own witch bottle, you will also be making your own Brigid's Cross, and taking home handcrafted incense so you"ll have everything at home to celebrate or prepare your altar.
What is a Witch Bottle?
Witch bottles originated and were prominently used in Europe for centuries, as a way to protect someone from ill wishes and negativity, or to attract love and marriage proposals. Many have been unearthed underneath homes, fireplaces, inside walls and even around property lines. Nowadays, they have made their return to popularity as a tool on your altar for ritual work, or as a way to help manifest certain qualities into your life like luck, love, protection, prosperity, etc.
Usually a bottle or small vial that has been filled with herbs, crystals, liquids, small personal objects, and anything that holds a magical potency. Once filled it is sealed with wax, and it becomes almost like a battery. The idea is that the content in the bottle is able to amplify the intended attribute that your wanting to manifest, and keeps working as long as the seal remains intact. Some say that when the seal breaks, it means that either you have attained your wish or the spell has completed.
