When crochet inspiration hits other things usually crop up so before I can post some spell pouch and other witchy crochet patterns I need to put up a little placeholder to refer back to. This also gives me enough time to finish writing up the various patterns, decide on how they will be posted and maybe turn them into PDF’s for easier use.
Disclaimer – this wasn’t my bright idea but I can’t find the link to the Tumbler account where I first encountered it. All praise and applause to the innovator who did, and if I find the link I will update this post. That being said, I need something to reference to in a couple of upcoming posts so I’ve photographed my process for this purpose.
Wax Sealed Sigil / Spell / Charm
You will need
- A piece of square paper – origami paper will do but the smaller the better
- A sigil
- A pen to write it with
- Herbs – charged to purpose
- Peppermint Oil
- Wax and Stamp
If you’ve never folded a no glue origami envelope check out this video for instructions. I pre-fold my envelopes before starting to make it easier to close everything up later on and I don’t worry about the folds running clear, this isn’t meant for me to send anywhere and I’d rather then were clear for later on.
Get your things together and draw the sigil in the centre of the square of paper and activate it in your usually way. For this I usually anoint my candle and light it with a statement of intent before using visualisation and the peppermint oil to activate the sigil itself.
Put the herbs in the centre of the paper and affirm the purpose in whatever way you prefer and then fold the envelope closed.
You can leave it there if you feel confident in your folds but for extra security you can seal it with wax, affirming your purpose as you do. You don’t have to rush out and buy a wax stamp kit if you don’t have one. If you’re careful and sensible you can seal the envelope with wax from your candle but the quality of seal with vary depending on the type of candle you are using.
And there you have it, a wax sealed sigil/spell/charm ready to go into a pouch or some other storage device like a manifestation box.
