Jar spells are also known as bottle spells. There are two main types of jar spells. One is to sweeten a target or to sour a target. To sweeten a target, sometimes we call these jar spells sweetening jars or honey jars. Honey isn’t always the preferred choice of sweetening ingredient, so I have become accustomed to calling them either a sweetening jar or just a jar spell. Sweetening jars are a type of jar or bottle spell that is used to sweeten someone up to you, sweeten their mind to you, become nicer, loving, willing, or offer kindness to you. These spells can be used for court cases in which you want the judge and lawyers to take your side over the opponent’s side. They can be used to reconcile with a lover, friend, or family member. You can use them for sweetening a new love towards you. You can use one to get a new job, sweeten your boss, or get accepted in a new program in college. These are simple jar spells; however, they can be slow to start working for you, usually in about 2 weeks to a month should be seeing some signs of the jar working in your favor. Keeping them hot with continuous burning of candles on top of the jar is quite favorable in pressing cases. Other times, you will burn a candle on top of the jar a few times a week such as 3 times every other day.The beauty of these little simple treasures is that you can work one jar for months or even a year later successfully. When finished with the jar, give it a proper burial in the front yard, east direction, or in a potted plant.
The type of candle that goes on top is not important as much as what goes on the candle and inside of the jar. Tea lights, vigil lights, tapers, pillars, are all good choices depending on your style and the kind of work you are doing. Choose the appropriate color for your working, or if you live in an area where resources are limited, use white candles. Choose appropriate hoodoo oils for your candles and choose quality herbs, curios, and hoodoo powders for inside of your jars. Do not over do the herbs, as it will harden your sweetener in the jar. Adding just a pinch of each and choosing the oil or essential oil instead helps to prevent this hardening. Choose an odd number of ingredients to go inside the jar, counting the honey as ingredient number 1. Some root workers use syrup, karo, brown sugars, or white sugars instead of honey. I personally choose local honey from either a farmers market or my mother’s back yard honey bees nest, or plain syrup. I feel that local honey is more potent and pure verses watered down imported honey that is sold in supermarkets. Your jar should be glass and have a metal lid, you will be burning candles on top and plastic will melt. My niece who is Lakota Sioux, talks about using medicine bottles for a quick throw together, but either way, a good solid container that has a tight fitted top, so it doesn’t leak with working the jar. Once you have filled the container with prayer papers, herbs, personal items, etc. close the lid, shake and swirl the bottle, heat it up by melting wax over the top and light your candle on it. Some folks will heat that jar up on the stove then burn candles on it. Set the jar inside of a bowl or large plate to catch run over from candles. Over time when the plate or bowl becomes full of wax you will take the wax and wrap it up and put in the yard, under a tree, or at a crossroads. (thank the tree, or crossroads, pay the crossroads with some coins). Sometimes, the buildup of wax on the jar will keep a wick burning too long, causing the honey inside to be too hot and seep out of the jar, so make sure to periodically check the size of the wick and trim it. Sometimes it’s unavoidable though, and you will get some seeping honey from your jar, you should change your jar to a better fitted lid on it, and continue working the jar.
Petition papers, photos, personal items from the target and yourself go inside of the jar as well. If you do not have personal items with their dna, such as a strip of tissue, cotton tip, clothing, etc. with bodily fluids on them, then use a photo of them. IF neither of these things you have, and you absolutely CAN NOT get them, not because you are not trying hard enough or too scared, THEN you may use a photo or their name and birthday. The best targeting item IS something personal of theirs. Hair, saliva, sexual fluids, strip of worn clothing, etc. can be obtained, even if you have to cut a small bristle from their tooth brush. It might take some time, and you will need to be clever about the timing on it, but most people can easily obtained these items. You can choose to wait until they sleep to cut a piece of their hair from their head or legs, pubic areas, etc. Or you can invite that love interest over for dinner and serve a nice prepared meal with your best glasses, dinner plates, silverware, and dinner napkins. Dinner napkin being the source of interest! But, if you had a fight and you threw him out the house 3 months ago, threw all of his clothes out, toothbrush, hairbrush, all of it in a roaring fit to never want to see him ever again… Well then you probably have to resort to using a photo you saved of him or steal it from his online profile on Facebook. Lol. Such as life.
Now, what to do with these things once gathered? Here’s where you start working some magick. Obtain a 3×3 in square paper, either from a brown paper bag, love stationary, money stationary, appropriate colored paper, with the edges neatly torn, not cut with scissors, to represent a natural parchment (scissors in hoodoo represent cutting something out of your life). Write the targets full name in an odd number of times (3, 5, 7, 9, etc) one line under the next, like so :
Your Targets Full Name
Your Targets Full Name
Your Targets Full Name
Your Targets Full Name
Your Targets Full Name
Turn the paper ¼ of a turn to the right. Write your full name the same number of times one line under the next, just like you did with their name, ON TOP of their name. Your name will be perpendicular to their name. The end result will resemble graph or grid paper.
Now, turn your paper right side up how you started their name. Around the outside of the names in a complete circle WITHOUT lifting your pen, in cursive writing, write out a command that coincides with the work you are doing, such as returntomereturntomereturntome. Do not cross the t’s or dot the i’s until you have completed this circle around the names and joining the last letter of the last word to the first letter of the first word. THEN you can lift the pen to cross t’s and dot i’s. If you lift the pen too early before finishing the circle, start a new petition paper. Refer to the petition paper link for images of a what a petition paper will look like.
Next, anoint the paper with the appropriate oil or oils, just a dab will do. Sprinkle the hoodoo powder in the paper, add curios and some herbs to the center, just enough though so the paper will close up, if you find the paper to be too small make a larger squared paper. Speak your intention out loud and then fold it towards you in half, turn the paper, and fold again towards you, turn and fold a third time towards you. Spoon out some honey and eat it. Some people will state a chant such as “so and so’s heart and mind is as sweet to me as this honey is to my mouth” or to get a boss to really like you and give you a raise and praise you to the higher ups in the chain say “my boss’s tongue is as sweet to me and this honey is to my mouth”.
Put your petition paper in the honey jar, put in any herbs, powders, or curios into the jar and close the lid. Get a colored candle appropriate to the work, put a few drops of oil on the candle and stroke the candle towards you covering the entire candle, use some of the hoodoo powder to sprinkle the candle. Light the bottom of the candle while holding it over the jar to drip some wax on the lid of the jar and stick the candle on top of the lid in the wax drippings so it will adhere to the surface. Focus, visualize, and speak the intention as you Burn the candle completely down, the next day repeat the candle process. Do this for 7 consecutive days to jump start the energy of the honey jar, heating up the energy. After the first week, you can bump it down to three times a week for the next 3-6 weeks, after words to maintain the energy that is flowing nicely, work it down to once a week. IF you need to heat up the honey jar to get the energy flowing quicker, go back to three times a week. Basically, listen to the energy, pay attention to your feedback from the universe, pay attention to the results. The results could start slowly; more times it will start slow, but pay attention to them. Like any spell, be patient, the spells aren’t a quick fix, magick is a lifestyle, a new way of seeing the universe, a new way of working in your universe. Listen to the universe, don’t lust after a result, you will miss the real thing before your eyes if you are expecting a certain sign. The result might come to you in a way that is unfamiliar or undesirable, but it’s your result, own it. Believe in yourself, believe in your spirits, and believe in your universe. More people fail at attempts to magick because they give up too soon before they see real results, because they either doubted the work would happen OR they expected a certain sign from the universe and didn’t give it enough time to manifest. ANY one will tell you that is a root worker, magician, sorcerer, or witch that magick can manifest in as short as a day’s time OR a whole year later when you have been seriously dedicated to your solving your circumstance. So, don’t give up, work additional back up candles with your honey jar, do some ritual baths, use those hoodoo powders, work a lodestone moving spell, or even a mojo bag. Stick with your work and you will receive an answer from the universe.
Free honey jar spell for a new job:
Bowl to set jar inside
Jar of honey or syrup
High John Root
Grains of paradise
Five fingers grass
Lodestone with iron hairs
Dirt from department of labor or a place representing your special line of work
Grind a portion of these ingredients into a powder to sprinkle on your candle or make an oil infusion with them. If you don’t know how to make an infused oil, you may purchase a good quality steady work oil to use on your candles and put a drop or two in the honey jar. I personally make and sell steady work oil, and sometimes have some of the ingredients above for sale when I have extra stock herbs.
Write out the petition paper with your full name 9 times, around the outside of the names write out in a circle “successfulgreatpayingjobsuccessfulgreatpayingjob” until you complete the circle and close it off.
Lay a strand of your hair in the paper and start folding it. Place it in the jar, add the ingredients, close the jar, and anoint and sprinkle your candles and light it. Burn a candle for 7 days straight, then as reduce to three times a week until job is obtained. Once it is obtained store the jar in a safe place or bury in front yard or potted plant to set by front of house.

Write out your petition paper with their name 7 times as shown above, then turn it ¼ of a turn and write your name on top of theirs 7 times to have upperhand in situation and influence their thoughts of you. Around the outside of the names, write your desire such as “cometomecometome” or “followmedesiremefollowmedesireme” . Anoint paper with a good quality herb infused oil you have made or purchased. Lay any personal items with DNA on the paper and fold as instructed in previous spell. All else is the same set up as previous honey jar, you are just changing the nature of the intent with the ingredients, petition paper and candles.
The second type of jar spell is the souring jar which is used to sour someone’s life, break up couples, hot foot an opponent, silencing a gossiper, or basically wreak havoc on some poor sap. The technique is the same but the ingredients, the disposal, and you will shake this type of jar daily or any time right before a new candle is lit on it. Common ingredients are vinegar, crossing ingredients, hot foot ingredients, break up ingredients, etc. The disposal of the bottle itself is either buried in a cemetery, thrown in a river, or taken to the targets home where they will walk over it. Some workers will place it in a crossroads as well, but I prefer the cemetery or river. The cemetery is symbolic of a deadening, permanently ending the situation at hand, and the river is common to use when driving someone out of your life.
