đ” đ”đ” Is it just me or is this also a charmer tea spell I just found on my Instagram đ€·đŒââïžđ”đ”
A spell for grief and moving on
So this happened as a result of me dwelling too much on a friendship that ended about a month ago. As a result itâs probably best suited to recovery from abruptly severed friendships and romantic relationships. That said, I deliberately kept it simple (mostly because Iâm a closet and spoonie witch) so if you want to modify this to suit your needs by all means go for it!
Also, this isnât meant to replace professional mental health help. If your grief or sadness is persisting or way more intense than normal for your base level of mental health, thereâs no shame in taking it to a professional and I strongly recommend doing so.
đ±What you needđ±
đ warm to hot water
đsalt. Yup, just plain old table salt.
đground black pepper. This is for banishing your excess emotions, protection just in case, and to give a nudge to do anything youâve been putting off related to your feelings of loss (i.e. blocking numbers, unfriending, deleting convo history, etc) You can probably grab this straight out of the pantry too.
đchili powder for an extra punch of magic. If you donât have it in your house, add a couple drops of hot sauce, or use red pepper flakes.
đa bowl big enough to mix everything in.
đmeasuring scoops if youâre as bad at eyeballing things as I am.
đ(optional!) Dried/ground herbs that match any other intent you want to instill (healing, purification, etc)
đ±What to dođ±
Grab your bowl and get your gloves if you donât like mixing stuff with your bare hands, weâre gonna make salt dough. Yes, I do mean that stuff you used to make crafts out of in pre-K.
Thereâs a ton of recipes online but my favorite is the one @lazywitchling was awesome enough to share here. I used 1 tablespoon/14g of salt, 1 tablespoon/14g of water, and 2 tablespoons/28g of flour but I only make one disc at a time, so.
(<>Closet witch tip: if you make them in small doses, if anyone notices the stuff in the sink/dishwasher you can tell them it was a mug cookie gone wrong.>)
Make sure your chili powder and pepper containers are nearby. You can just eyeball that, really.
Dump your water, flour, and salt into the bowl. If youâre using hot sauce add a couple tiny drops right now.
Mix until everything is lightly combined (basically, till itâs barely sticking together) and then add your pepper/chili powder.
Focus all your grief, loss, rage, sadness, etc., into the dough as you mix it together thoroughly. Scream, cry, etc., if you want to/can. Hell, slap the dough around a little if you want to.
Once itâs mixed and youâve finished instilling the dough with your feelings, think/say:
<>âMy feelings were overwhelming me. But theyâve flown away, and now Iâm >free.â
Form it into whatever shape you feel like (I went for a flat disc) then add your other ingredients if you have them.
Put your dough on a plate to dry for a day (or if you live somewhere like me where the weather refuses to make up its mind if it wants to be damp or not, a couple of days).
Also make sure any pets canât get at it! You have a lump of delicious salt, most pets will scarf that right down.
If youâre in a rush or itâs just too wet you can toss it in the oven for a bit at 200 F/93 C.
đ±After the Spellđ±
This is a completely emotionally exhausting spell. Even if you feel better immediately after itâs done like I did, you will probably need a nap or something later. So get yourself some ice cream, watch a favorite movie, or read a new book. Take care of yourself!
The really nice thing about salt dough is that itâs pretty easy to get rid of. I wouldnât go chucking it in a fish pond or hurling it into your lawn or anything because of the salt, but still.
You could crumble it up and toss it into a bonfire. You could drop it while youâre crossing a busy street and let cars run over it. Iâm letting it dissolve in a glass of water over a week, then pouring the water down the toilet. This is totally up to you as long as the thing gets destroyed.
I like this, I might modify it to do it for someone else.

Spells are not simple.
Here's a real tip for all you baby witches out there, diving into spellwork before anything else: Spells aren't as simple as going through the motions, and a spell probably won't work if you don't understand how to use your Will.
This is what I've been taught by my mentor who has been a witch for 25 years. You have to set your intentions and use your Will to match. What is your Will and how is it different from your Intention? This post may get long, but it's important and I haven't seen any others cover this, so please don't give up half way through!
Basically, it's like this:
The intention part is easy. You figure out your goal, pick a spell or create a spell that uses ingredients or actions that match your intent, and then you perform it. This is what most of Tumblr will teach you how to do. While working with simply your intent can sometimes work, it's more like a coin toss because you're not actually making your spellwork as powerful as it could be.
But your Will, as I've been taught, is the most important part of any magick and is the most often overlooked. You can make magick with nothing but your intent and your Will together. Did you know that? What is your Will? It's the power you put behind your intent. <>Your Will is your Power. >
That's right, baby witches. You have to learn how to tap in to the power around you as well as the power within yourself. This is why spells are never as simple as you think; if you can't add your Will to a spell, it will never be as powerful as you want it to be. This concept can prove difficult, so I'll try to break it down as simply as I can.
Your Will comes from the energy within you, but you can also tap into the energy around you to add to that power. This means that to find your Will you have to first learn how to:
This is the basis for finding and understanding magick. Magick is all about energy, and the sooner you learn how to do these things, the sooner you'll start to realize your power as a witch. And this is why I say that spells are not as simple as Tumblr makes them; at least, they shouldn't be.
When you're performing a spell, you should be raising energy and infusing that energy with your intent. You could be adding energy to your ingredients, or simply raising it and holding it, to be released into the world when the spell is finished. That's your <>Will>; the energy you add to your working. The stronger the energy, the stronger the spell.
A simple way to put it: <>Intent + Will = Power>
So please do yourself a favor. Research energy. Find it, figure it out, feel it within you. Take your time to truly understand that power so you can properly perform powerful spellwork.
Learning all of this can take time and that is fine. If you take your time to work on this, you will be grateful for it in the long run. Feeling the energy that surrounds you and that comes from within you is such a beautiful thing, I promise. Energy is wonderful.
