Household Magic

By December 28, 2013

Follow me on:

For many of us, magic is a practice that involves using things you already have on hand. Rather than running out and spending a fortune on "supplies," you can find ways to use non-magical items in a magical manner. Let's look at some ideas that our readers had for different ways to incorporate the mundane into spellwork and ritual! Household Magic

What are some unusually, not-traditionally-magical things you've used in spellwork?

The junk drawer is just a fabulous repository for mundane-turned magical items, isn’t it? Everyone has one. The drawer you toss the old keys, extra thread, the old kitchen shears, the extra screw that didn’t fit anywhere in the Ikea bookshelf, bits of paper, business cards…. For me, that entire drawer is just magic waiting to happen!

“The only tool a witch needs is the witch her(him)self.” Everything else is window-dressing.

Tools are nice (I love my ritual tools), and bits and bobs and herbs and stones and spices are nice, but in the end they do nothing without the intent, focus, and energy of the practitioner.
