With summer being in full bloom (literally), I’ve been getting pretty crafty and making my own blessing bundles (double-double wordplay trouble). What are blessing bundles? They are a gathering of plants and herbs, harvested for their magickal properties. Like any spell, the different ingredients are combine to create a specific intention.
This particular blessing bundle I made for a summer festival I recently went to. I went with my girlfriends who are also all witchy spirits. The festival itself had a mystic and magickal theme to it, so these bundles were the perfect addition and thing to pass out during the festival.
The bundle’s spell is to invoke the guidance of the fae. Faeries are supernatural entities who possess mystic powers. Often, people were afraid of faeries due to their mischief and trickery, but these playful creatures are very powerful and can bring blessings and guidance into our lives.
This bundle’s energy not only attracts the fae, but called forth blessings of spiritual guidance and loving and healing vibrations. It was just the thing for my hippie-witch self and would be a great craft for any spiritual festival go-er.
Being the first tree to sprout its leaves for spring, Birch is known for renewal and new beginnings. It connects to both Venus & the Moon, Air & Water, and has strong feminine energies. Many ancient pagans associated Birch to the White Maiden of the Forest, and it is said to attract fairies. The fabled Fly Agaric mushroom grows near Birch and due to this, Birch is said to be protective in halucengentic journeying, providing psychic protection and safety from the madness of the Fae.
Before Rosemary was associated with Solar and Masculine energies through Christianity, it was a Feminine herb, being associated with Venus and the Moon. Burned, it aids in purifying and protecting a space. Associated with memory, it induced one to remember their dreams and past lives. It also has legends of attracting faeries and good energies.
This aromatic herb has been loved for centuries due to its calming scent. Its magic brings love, peace, and happiness, and is a good herb for love and friendship spells. It protects against evil spirits and burned at Midsummer, it attracts faeries and elves.
Fairy Magick Blessing Bundles
How to Make
Take a few sprigs each of Rosemary and Lavender. Using birch bark* as paper, wrap the two herbs together in a bundle. Tie with hemp, jute, or some other natural cord.
How to Use
When you are ready to use, throw the bundle into a bonfire to release the magick. Elements are one of the many ways to invoke a spells magick. The element of fire is fast moving energy, spreading an intention and manifesting spellwork. It is often used in spells related to energy, transformation, passion, purification, vision, illumination, and power.
As the bundle burns, hold the intention of the magick in your mind. Visualize the energy spreading into the night, calling forth the fae to assist you in your journey.
Let this blessed bundle bring renewal into your spiritual practice. Let its magick’s assist you in a new level of self-awareness and journeying through the help of the fae.
*Witchy Tip: Enhance your spell by writing on the birch bark, sealing that magick into the bundle. I drew runic symbols on my paper associated with the herbal magick, but you can draw other sigils or write your own blessing.
