Winter can bring about a cold or illness in the blink of an eye. Use this spell to keep yourself healthy and if you do begin to feel the effects of a sickness do it immediately. **this spell should NEVER take the place of visiting a clinic, doctor, hospital, primary care physician. Make sure you are safe to consume the following ingredients**
- Fresh ginger root (a medium sized piece will be okay)
- A ginger grater.
- Lemon- probably a bag of lemons because this spell should be repeated often
- tea cup or mug
- Tea Pot
Timing: Whenever you begin to feel sick or are battling an illness.
Prepare your kitchen area for magick. Begin by grating the ginger and setting it aside you only need a little bit- no more than ⅓ a teaspoon. Slice the lemon into wedges and put it inside the tea cup, take the water and begin to boil it within the tea pot. As it boils you can use this or a similar chant.
Water toil and water simmer
makes the magick sparkle & glimmer
infuse this spell with energy and vigor
to make the magick energy grow bigger
When the water has boiled pour it over the lemon wedges, let it seep for 3-4 minutes. Stirring in honey in a clockwise motion repeat these or similar words:
Tea made from honey and gold
helps me to fight this awful cold
with each moment I grow stronger and more like me
as I will it so mote it be!
Stir in the grated ginger and remove the lemons if you wish. Sip at this tea. Throw away lemon remains or compost. Do not use the same lemon for more than one batch of tea. Repeat this spell as often as you desire.
