Sun Magic Botanical Blend

Create a gorgeous blend of botanicals to conjure the power of the sun for spells, solar magic, charging magical items, and energy work. I like to make this blend around Beltane for extra potency. I use mostly yellows and oranges in my blend and like to incorporate botanicals that are traditionally associated with the sun or that bloom in the spring and summer. For a more fiery magic, you can also add hibiscus or other reddish flowers.


ITEMS NEEDED

  • A mix of dried herbs and flowers that are associated with solar magic or that bloom in the spring and summer. For my blend, I used orange, grapefruit, and lemon peels with cloves, hops, jasmine, chrysanthemum, chamomile, and juniper berries.

  • airtight container

  • citrus essential oils (I use sweet orange and lemon, but you can use whichever oils you prefer)


INSTRUCTIONS

1. Combine the botanicals with the essential oils.

2. Place in an airtight container and leave for a couple of weeks.

3. To use, recite the incantation.


"Solar magic, fiery and bright

I call upon your glorious light

Upon this (spell) shine Beltane’s power

Remember summer’s golden hour."


*Note: change the word "spell" to whichever word is most appropriate for the task at hand. For example, to charge a magical item replace the word "spell" with the name of the item.
