Charm bags are one of my all-time favorite types of spells. They’re small, portable, highly customizable bits of magick that can be used for just about any occasion.Today I’m sharing with you all how to make a charm bag for Lammas!
Lammas (also known as Lughnasadh) is a time of celebrating abundance. Although it is still summer, autumn is just around the corner and the most fruitful time of harvest is just beginning. Fruits are ripening and flowers are blossoming. Everything is coming to a climax – and endings are on the horizon.
Abundance and Blessings Charm Bag
Handful of oats
Sprigs of lavender (dried or fresh)
White rose petals (dried or fresh)
Strawberry or blackberry leaves
Piece of citrine
1 muslin sachet bag
Place all ingredients in the bag, considering your current blessings and those blessings you wish to attract into your life. Tie the bag shut and shake it slowly to combine the ingredients. Carry it with you in your purse or car or tuck it somewhere safe such as a dresser drawer.
Lammas Witch Jar Variation
A witch’s jar would be a great variation on this recipe too. Instead of placing all the ingredients in a bag, place them in a small glass or biodegradable jar. (You might want to leave out the citrine crystal if you don’t want to sacrifice it.) Once all the ingredients are mixed together, pour a generous helping of honey into the jar over them. Seal the jar and bury it in your garden (if you live in an apartment, a pot of soil will work just as well.)
In addition to making charm bags, I’ll be enjoying some cold beer and homemade lavender cornbread in honor of the Sabbat. How will you be celebrating Lammas?
