You’ll need a few large apples, cinnamon, yarrow, spring water, salt, and a enameled or cast-iron saucepan.
These are often associated with love and passion.
If it is to your orientation, it is often helpful to bless or consecrate these components.
Concentrate on your goal while preparing this potion:
Slice the apples place them into the saucepan, coat with cinnamon, and cover with yarrow.
Put in enough water to submerge the contents and add a small sprinkling of salt.
Stir clockwise on low heat, incanting a love charm of your own making.
Bring to a simmer for about 90 minutes, strain and place into a dark jar.
Put a few drops into your favorite aftershave or cologne and wear it every 4 days.
The magic stays after the scent fades.
Imbolc – Brigid’s Well Spell
To Heal Or Bring General Good Health
Purpose: To ease ill-health or bring well-being in the coming year.
Background: Imbolc is also known as the Feast of Brigid, a well-beloved Irish Goddess renowned as a patron of healing. Many springs and rivers are sacred to her, bearing features of her name, in Brittany, England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales, but her strongest association with the healing power of waters is with wells.
In pre-Christian times, people venerated the genii loci, or “spirits of place,” of natural locations that were considered particularly sacred springs and wells, sources of water that came up from the earth, were considered very special, and healing properties, including cures for eye and skin problems, became attributed to many of those associated with Brigid. In this spell, you will be recreating Brigid’s Well in symbol, in the form of a pottery or stone bowl or cup. Since Brigid’s Healing Well is a spiritual symbol, this recreation is just as valid as if you had applied to the spirit of a well in Kildare, in Ireland, or a river in Wales. You may make up to three requests for healing, including one for general good health, as appropriate.
How to cast the Spell
Items You Will Need:
Six white candles, 6-8″ in length
One stone or pottery cup or bowl
Three small beach pebbles
One small cup of salt
Timing: Cast this spell at Imbolc
Casting the Spell:
Place the candles all around the cup.
Name each stone as an ailment you wish healed, as appropriate, sprinkling a pinch of salt over each. Breathe onto them, saying:
By my breath.
By my flesh.
By the living waters of Brigid, may health prevail and good reside.
Hail, Lady of Fire.
Hold your palms toward the flames and close your eyes, then visualize dark stains on the stones dissolving in the water, rising to the surface to be burned away in the candle flames.
Chant the following until you feel the energies in the circle rise:
Earth, water, flame
Work in Her name
Earth, water, fire
Work my desire.
Discharge the energy raised by raising your hands into the air and mentally releasing it.

A glass of pure spring water is typically maintained on an altar, to call in spirits and feed the ancestors. Many find Spirit Water a stronger substitute. This is a favorite of the Spiritualist, community and may be used to summon your own ancestral spirits, or in seances or other necromantic spells.
1. Add one tablespoon of anisette to a glass of spring water.
2. Place it on the altar instead of, or in addition to, the standard glass of plain spring water.
