3 Different Types of Spell Jars in Witchcraft

There are many different types of spells within witchcraft, each with its own purpose and intention. Here is a brief look at some types of spell jars as well as what they are used for.

Attraction Spell Jar

An attraction spell jar is used to draw something or someone towards you. It is filled with items that have the property of love, such as roses and rose quartz. Attractive witchcraft has a large reputation for being used with love spells but can also be used to attract various things such as money or success.

Repulsion Spell Jar

The repulsion spell jar is used to push something or someone away from you. It is filled with items that have the property of protection, such as salt and black tourmaline.

Curse Spell Jar

A curse is used to inflict harm on someone you dislike. It is filled with items that have the property of destruction, such as black pepper and garlic. This type of spell jar should be used with caution, as it can have harmful consequences for both the caster and the target.

Precautions for Spell Jars

The use of spell jars in witchcraft can be a powerful tool, but it can also be dangerous if not used correctly. Here are some precautions to take when using spell jars:

  • Always use a clean container. This will prevent any unwanted energy from entering and affecting the ingredients.
  • Make sure you know what the spell is for and what ingredients are used. Some spells can have harmful consequences if not performed correctly.
  • Be aware of your own energy and the energy of the person or situation you are targeting with the spell jar. Always use positive intentions and never try to harm someone intentionally.
  • When you are finished with the spell jar, you should dispose of it properly. This can be done by burying it in the ground or throwing it into running water. By doing this, you will safely release the energy from the container.

What Happens When a Spell Jar Breaks?

When a spell jar breaks, its time has come and gone. Is it dangerous when a spell breaks? Not entirely. While it may be dangerous if the container is made of glass and you’re barefoot, there won’t be any chaotic energy rushing about causing havoc. So, sweep up the mess with the knowledge that spell worked until its end.
