Magick Mixology: Rituals for Love & Honor

Magick Mixology

Maximize Your Magick!
 
Kitchen Witch" is a term used for cunning or witchy folx whose spiritual practice is rooted within food, mealtimes, and the home. Kitchen Witches craft rituals, spells and/or potions utilizing edible items, found objects, and common household items. The kitchen is their altar; their home is their sacred space.

In 2014, we created our Ritual Kits, Candles and Apothecary with the idea of mixing and matching common ritualistic ingredients like lavender, rose, or patchouli that would create a perfect combination for a unique spell or intention- setting ritual. 
 
Choose your combination of handcrafted ritual candles, mists, and kits with our offerings of crystals, herbs, incense, and more to perfectly set your intentions for focus and awareness of your magic!
 
Love Magic- How to make it work:
  1. Consider your intention or goals. What are you looking to accomplish? Be sure no shadow work is needed first, as internal conflicts (like self esteem issues, mental illness, or trauma) can hinder surface- level intentions like love, clarity, energy, fortune, etc. 
  2. Find the ingredients that serve this purpose. For example, if you are looking for Love & Honor, try ingredients with earth- based ingredients and floral fragrances like rose, jasmine, honeysuckle,etc. Crystals with colors that match the sacral, heart, and crown chakras will likely align with universal love, self love, and love for others. Quartzes like clear quartz, rose quartz, amethyst, or green crystals like green calcite will do the trick. (Pro tip: Crystal healing theory is loosely based off chakra theory, which is tied to color theory).
  3. After you discover what ingredients to use, find a Ritual Candle or Ritual Mist or Oil that serve these purposes. As usual, the more you put into this ritual, the more you get out of it. Try combing a Mist and a Candle, or an Oil and a Mist to heighten the effects of your rituals or spell. Shop Candles and Apothecary here.
  4. Top things off with extra ingredients like Loose Herbs, Herbal Wands, or Incense.
Ritualistic Inspirations:
Feel free to pick which ingredients you connect with most, but for purposes of this article we've chosen ingredients for Love Magick, utilizing components from our Love & Honor Ritual Kit, Roses Ritual Candle, and Honeysuckle Ritual Mist. Read through the ritual and mantras first, then make your ingredient selection.
  1. Cleanse your space and self with our locally, Chumash sourced California White Sage which is provided in our Love & Honor Ritual Kit. Let the sacred smoke and sensation calm the nerves and expand the mind. Focus on cleansing yourself and space. Practice breath work to be mentally present. Use the provided feather tool to help waft the smoke, and use a dish to catch fallen ashes.
  2. Next, light a Roses Ritual Candle or Honeysuckle & Jasmine Ritual Candle with a match. You can also anoint the included pink tea light with the provided jasmine oil, rubbing 2- 3 drops in a clockwise direction and lighting it using a match or candle's flame.
  3. Set the included Rose quartz and Clear quartz near your candle. Bonus points for using and Amethyst for calming the nerves and engaging the third eye.
  4. Sit comfortably, close your eyes, and envision your present life filled with everything you need for self- love. Visualize the present, then far into the future, painting a detailed picture of what you see in your minds eye. When ready write these ideas down in the notebook or journal.
  5. Next, envision what you need for romantic love. What does this love feel like? What can you receive and give to make sure this love it abundant for you? Write these down in the journal.
  6. Finally, when ready, consider where in your personal relationships with friends and family do you eel resistance? How do you contribute to this? How can you make inner changes to help facilitate more outward understanding?
  7. After contemplating the above and when ready, pick one of the three mantras below to recite:
MANTRA 1: Self love

On this Monday, day of the Moon, I claim all of Luna’s gifts, blessings, and healing into my body, mind, and spirit. May I make the space needed to experience the highest vibrations of love on this Valentine’s Day: self love, romantic love, and universal love. I am a vessel of love in all of its forms, and easily give and receive love, compassion, and joy with ease, including to myself. With these ritual tools, I sanctify all of the love in my life and the love yet to come, and I express gratitude for all of the love in my life and love yet to come. With these words I set my intention.

MANTRA 2: Goddess call to bless current love or new love

On this Valentine’s Day, I call on Aphrodite, Inanna, Astarte, and Hathor! May they clear any and all blockages between me and love, in all of its forms, and heal and grow all love that is meant for me. I call in the energies of these goddesses, angels, and ancestors of the Light to bless all of the love that is in my life now and provide me strength to show up with love in my most sacred relationships. I claim all of my love abundance! I claim all of my love blessings! I claim all of the love and joy intended for me! With these words I set my intention.

MANTRA 3: Healing + calling in new love

On this day of love, passion and joy, I honor my heart space by gently releasing what and who is no longer is in service and collaboration with my heart space. As I chant the mantra of the heart chakra, I clear all dense, stagnant, or negative energy: (chant “YAAAAMMM” as many times as you feel necessary). May my heart space filled with self-love and space held for new, romantic love. May my Guides lead new love to me in Divine timing. May my spirit team guide me toward all forms of love for my highest good. With these words I set my intention.

 

Finally, Mist yourself and your space with our Honeysuckle & Jasmine Ritual Mist to seal in your intentions. Light the palo santo found inside the ritual kit using a candle flame, and the feather tool to waft the smoke. Palo Santo welcomes positive spirits and energies. Let the tea light burn out, and burn the Roses candle for at least two hours before extinguishing with a candle snuff, sold here.
