Cinnamon. That’s what I’m going to be talking about today. The magickal uses for cinnamon. Kitchen Witchery (or, a Hedge Witch) is often used to describe a person who uses herbs and spices and flowers for magickal purposes. Most of the herbs I’m going to be talking about can be easily found in your kitchen already. And if you don’t have them, you can find them at any grocery store.
Cinnamon is generally used to add “heat” to spells. Or to accelerate spell work. It is associated with fire. It can often be used in love spells or in money spells. I’m going to list some of the ways I use it and then some other ways it can be used.
Cloves can also be used in a similar way to either enhance cinnamon or in addition to cinnamon or in place of it.
- If you do candle spells or magick, you can anoint a candle with your choice of oil, and then roll it in cinnamon for love or for money. You can also sprinkle it around a candle if you don’t like anointing and rolling them in herbs. The herbs can spark and pop as the candle melts.
- Sprinkle cinnamon on the front steps of a business to encourage customers and clients.
- If you have a money altar and you have a dollar bill (or several bills) or a “manifestation check” with a certain amount of money you are trying to manifest into your life, cinnamon can be sprinkled on the bills and/or check to encourage fast money.
- When adding cinnamon to tea or coffee, stir clockwise (deasil – an old witchy term) to bring something towards you. I often say a little chant to myself when stirring in cinnamon in my morning matcha tea if I want to bring money, prosperity, good fortune or luck to me. Stir counter clockwise (widdershins) to have something taken away from you or removed.
- Sprinkle cinnamon on a wealth or money altar. If you don’t like the idea of having herbs sprinkled everywhere, designate a little bowl (clay or glass) and that can be where you keep your herbs. Change them periodically. Every full moon is a good time.
- Sprinkle cinnamon in your wallet to bring wealth to your pocketbook. Again, if the idea of taking out money smeared with herbs doesn’t sound like something you’re into, you can always take a small zip lock bag (really small, sometimes when you buy jewelry or crystals, they will put them in these tiny zip lock bags) and fill it with cinnamon and tuck that in the wallet somewhere.
Spirits please, money to me, wealth and abundance of prosperity, by the rule of three by three, this is my wish, so shall it be….
