How To Use Herbs For Good Luck

Now that you know which ingredients to use and their magickal properties, there are countless ways to welcome a touch of good fortune into your life. Here are just a few ideas to get you started:

Burn Dried Herbs as Incense

Different scents can evoke specific reactions that can influence a wide range of emotions, thoughts, and moods, and even convey your intention. With this in mind, you can burn loose incense you’ve created yourself to infuse your home with good luck and prosperity. Using rocks or sand in a fire-safe dish to disperse heat, a charcoal disc, and tongs to safely place your incense on top, you can start your own incense ritual and customize it depending on your intent.

Alternatively, you can bind your herbs together into a smoke-cleansing bundle.

Regardless of your preferred method, never leave something burning unattended in your home, and be sure the herbs you burn are safe for those around you to inhale – especially pets!

Diffuse Essential Oils

If you prefer to buy essential oils, you can diffuse their scent into your home with a decorative oil reed diffuser or in an air humidifier for a more immersive effect.

Create a Simmer Pot

Whether you’re looking to infuse your home with a little luck or prosperity, you can create a simmer pot using herbs that match your intention. Simmer pots are enchanting homemade potpourri recipes that you leave simmering on your stove. Usually containing aromatic citruses and spices, simmer pots can be customized depending on your intent – and they make your home smell fantastic!

Place Herbs Around Your Home

Do you remember those tall, decorative glass jars of peppers that were on every mom’s kitchen counter in the ‘90s? Yeah, that’s not exactly what we’re referring to, although that is certainly a creative way to display herbs and ingredients in the home.

Alternatively, you can display herbs or flowers that match your intention with potted plants, bouquets, or dried herb displays.

Consider Feng Shui when placing herbs – you wouldn’t want to decorate with herbs for abundance in the bathroom and risk flushing your riches down the drain. Instead, place these items near the entrance of your home to welcome positive chi inside rather than wasting it.

Or just keep them in places that need brightening up! Simply seeing these plants around your home will make a world of difference.

Carry Herbs In Your Wallet

This easy money ritual is as simple as placing a bay leaf in your wallet to bring in wealth. Be sure to change your leaf or herb of choice at least once a month, or this ritual may make your income stale.

Add Herbs & Oils To Your Spellwork

Creating a witch jar or spell pouch is an easy way to incorporate these herbs and ingredients, especially if you’re a more closeted practitioner. These items can either be tucked away discreetly or hidden in plain sight like any other decorative jar or potpourri pouch.

Cook With Them

If you’re a kitchen witch, then you already know how this one works! Incorporating ingredients into your recipes that carry your intent with them is a great way to ensure the blessings find their way to the whole family.

Always make sure ingredients are safe for everyone to eat before including them in recipes, and never serve a dish to someone with the intent of overriding their free will.

Tools of a Kitchen Witch

Create An Amulet

If you don’t have these plants or herbs on hand, there’s no need to worry! You can embroider an image of a flower or herb to wear as an amulet or find a pendant that represents your intention.

Brew Them In Tea

Include your favorite herbs and spices in your morning brew. I like to stir my tea clockwise to invite positive energy, luck, and success into my day. Alternatively, you can stir counter-clockwise if you intend to banish negativity and the like. Always do your due diligence to ensure your herb is safe to ingest beforehand.

Now that you have unlocked the secret to inviting Lady Luck into your life, there’s no stopping you! What is your favorite ritual for summoning good luck?
