Witch Balls & Beer | 

Women In Brewing

Grimmoire

 

​Hello! Thank you for signing up for the Witch Balls & Beers Virtual Experience! Below is a list of what you'll need, as well as recommendations and suggestions for what significant items to use as well!

What You'll Need:

  • Glass Jar

  • Scissors

  • Lighter

  • Candle (White is always good, or use a significant color)

  • String/twine (can correspond with a color)

  • Salt (any type; The more course; the better)

  • Tasty Craft Beer from your local brewery

 

You will also want to bring several different elements for your witch ball, depending on the intention you have for it.

 

Intentions can be anything! Protection, Love, Understanding, Clarity, Wealth, Success, etc.

 

Below I have created a list of different items and what their significance is, so you can choose your items correctly.

I recommend having at least:

2-5 Herbs

2-3 Items of Color Significance

1-2 Crystals

Other items I recommend:

  • Sequins or glitter (shiny & reflective items help push away negative intentions and spirits)

  • Small battery operated string lights (aesthetic mostly & can act as a lantern)

  • fishing line (helps to 'bulk' up a larger jar)

  • Anything of significance you want to add (This can be money, a photo, a slip of paper with a goal or wish or intention, a piece of cloth, etc. This jar is about the intentions you wish to put into it

Smudging

Smudging is traditionally a ceremony for purifying or cleansing the soul of negative thoughts of a person, place, or thing.

Smudging isn't required for our beginner workshop, but if you have the dried ingredients or incense to smudge, please bring them!

When you make a witch ball or jar in the future, the best practice is to always smudge your vessel before you begin.

Essential Oils

 Essential oils have been used in ritual, magick and medicine, with their use having the potential to transform lives on the physical, emotional, and spiritual levels.

For witch balls, essential oils can be used instead of , or along side smudging.

If you have any essential oils that are the same plant listed in the smudging or herbal areas, they have the same properties.

It is always best to try and use locally made essential oils, and ensure they are 100% pure and not diluted with other oils.
