We’ll post a more elaborate article on Witches’ Balls later, but for the meantime, I wanted to show these ones I made as gifts. Witches’ Balls are like little ornamental spells or prayers. Based on the combination of items inside, it casts out your intentions into the recipients’ environment.
These can be an excellent way to remind yourself of your intentions for the coming year. Create a ball that speaks to you and your needs – be realistic, and don’t overburden yourself with weighty goals. Place the ornament somewhere you will see it daily. Reflect on what the contents mean, and use it as a meditation guide.
I made these with the help of my 11 year old stepdaughter, so this can be a great family project.
Ingredients included cinnamon and tourmaline, which work well together; lavender; fir; rowan berries; cloves; and mustard seeds. The overall hope is for a healthy, positive home, rich and enduring family relations, and personal clarity.
The people who received them were not all pagans, but found them very beautiful. My stepdaughter remarked that they should open them up once just to smell the contents, which were just divine!
