Black Walnut Shell Powder has been used for over 300 years (that we know of) in Eastern European Witchcraft. This multi-purpose powder is used for a variety of applications and is typically utilized by mixing with water, salt or honey. Traditionally, it is boiled in a cauldron with water and Agrimony Powder and used as a bathing rinse to banish energetic attachments, end bad luck and heal a broken heart.
Black Walnut Water Recipe:
We recommend adding 2 teaspoons of the Organic Black Walnut Shell Powder to 1 gallon of water. Bring to a boil, then allow to simmer until the water has been reduced by half. Add 1 teaspoon of Agrimony Powder and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. At this point you may add 1/4 cup of sea salt - this step is optional but is highly recommended. Allow to cool to room temperature.
Mercury Retrograde Ritual evokes and draws upon Mercurial energy, which causes an energetic reversal of the retrograde. Doing so lessens, or often eliminates completely, common Mercury Retrograde issues, such as miscommunication, travel disturbances, and electrical maladies.

When to Perform:
Below you will see three different Mercury Retrograde protocols. Depending on the severity of how Mercury Retrograde impacts you, you may choose one of three ritual protocols. Alternatively, you may try all three protocols within the course of the year (remember, there are 3-4 Mercury Retrogrades every year!). Doing so will give you measurable and comparative results, so that you may plan accordingly for the following year. You may find that you only need to perform this ritual once to keep Mercury Retrograde maladies at bay. Alternatively, you may find your communication and technical or legal skills improve to such an extent that you choose to perform this ritual on a regular basis.
When a lover, friend or acquaintance silently goes silent, use this communication ritual to swiftly open pathways for communication. Suitable for use after a disagreement or when needing to obtain information from a person.
Please note, although this ritual can certainly be used on ex-lovers, it will not singlehandedly make them come back to you. When there is energetic resistance (bruised emotions, resentment, etc.), the resistance has to addressed first. This can be done through the Spellbound Ritual, which can attract the person back into your life and will naturally facilitate communication. Same goes for estranged lovers -- and high school boyfriends from 1993. Time weakens energetic resonance and telepathic connections.
For most, this ritual will only need to be performed once to obtain results.
For some, especially those trying to contact the estranged, up to 6 consecutive nights of ritual repetition is recommended. After the 6 nights, allow one full moon cycle (29 days) to see results.
When to Perform:
This communication ritual is most effective when performing during the Waxing Moon, between the Witch's New Moon and the Full Moon.
You Will Need:
It is often said that we are our own worst enemy. Our own destructive thoughts and inner torment cause us to make poor life choices, manifest dysfunctional relationships, and trip over our own feet.
Why are we manifesting unwanted repetitive cycles and behaviors? Often times, these are learned behaviors, coping strategies that have become ways to deal with stressful situations. Somewhere along the way in life, whether it be in early childhood or adulthood, you may have learned that doing these behaviors helped to relieve distress.
Self-defeating habits include fear of taking healthy risks, negative self-talk, inability to ask for help, obsessing about perfection, people-pleasing (at the cost of your own happiness), self-guilt or feeling undeserving... and the most common: procrastination.
The goal now is to break harmful cycles by replacing those maladaptive behaviors with spiritual tools of energy balancing.
Old World Witchcraft ritual for opening pathways to increasing financial abundance, especially when someone else appears to be holding the keys to your success.
Best used when wanting to have the upper hand in matters of salary and negotiation, especially while applying for a job or a loan.
May also be used when making large purchases, such as a home, car, investments, etc.
Best Time to Perform:
Whether you are having a disagreement with a co-worker, a roommate, or even a lover, this ritual can assist the other person with aligning with your personal views and goals. Best used when trying to convince your significant other of a proposed life change, wanting to obtain a raise from your boss, or to keep an argumentative family member civil at Thanksgiving.
