Container Spells, Jar Spells, and Bottle Spells are a long standing custom in Hoodoo, Southern Rootwork and Folk Magic Practices. The art of combining and containing the essence of magical herbs, roots, and curios into a perfect mixture is a powerful way to achieve ones desires and intentions. Traditionally made from old medicine bottles or mason jars these conjure containers can be decorated and painted to represent the condition or deity that is invoked. Hot sauce bottles may be used for an old-school hotfooting jar to drive someone away or an antique honey jar can be used for sweetening love work. When the bottle is ready, with all its herbs and décor, it is then sealed with wax or tied with string to reflect the intention that you are “sealing the deal.” Bottles and jars that are fixed and blessed may be used on an altar or used to contain the actions of an enemy. The earliest spells bottles were historically called “witch bottles.” Many times these blessed bottles were buried under doorsteps or placed in a secret location within the home to keep away evil. Empty blue glass “witch” bottles were hung on trees to protect from the evil eye. Many hoodoo doctors would also burn a candle affixed to the lid of the jar to add power and petition to the spell. Containers spell work is incredibly adaptive and can be used for pretty much any situation.
