Project: protective herbal pouches

I’ve been thinking of doing something like this for a while. I love experimenting with herbs, oils, salts, waters and crystals. I’ve been working on different cleansing bath variations for a couple of months now and I have a couple of favourites. While they help I also wanted something I could keep in place as protective charms.

I have my own dried Hawthorn and Sloe berries from our garden, and mum had some Hawthorn tea bags she didn’t want, so I rummaged through my herbal chest to see what felt right. With a bit of guidance from Loki I now have four little protective pouches. It feels great to be engaging with my Witchy side again after she’s been mostly dormant for the last few years.

It’s important to concentrate on and set the intention while you create the pouches. The ingredients I used were:

  • Hawthorn tea bags (leaves & flowers)
  • Hawthorn berries (dried)
  • Sloe berries (dried)
  • Elder berries (dried)
  • Rose petals (dried)
  • White Sage leaves (dried)
  • Palo Santo essential oil

Anyway, here are some photos:
