Soap Sympathy Spell


  • A few things in sympathy with the person
  • A small bar of soap
  • Pen
  • Medium-sized bowl of water
  • New wooden spoon
  • 2 pictures of the person (or 2 pieces of paper with their name on it)
  • African violet
  • Dark green or black candle
  • Bright green candle

Cast your circle, call your quarters, and do your altar devotion. Cleanse, consecrate, and empower all the items on your altar for banishment of negativity and illness. Carve the sick person's name into the soap with the pen. Carve Banish illness from (person's name) on the dark green/black candle and Heal (person's name) on the bright green candle.

Put the person's picture under the black candle and light it. Ask Spirit to drive out the illness from your friend or relative. Allow the candle to burn as you work on the next part of the spell.

Surround the bowl of water with the things that belong to the sick person. Anything disposable (hair, nail clippings, etc.) goes into the bowl of water. Place the soap in the bowl and begin to stir the water with the wooden spoon in a counterclockwise direction. State the following three times:
"Out of the blood, and into the marrow,
Out of the marrow, and into the bone,
Out of the bone, and onto the skin,
Off the skin and into the hair,
Out of the hair and into the sea,
Out of the sea and onto dry land —
As surely as God made woman and man!
So mote it be!"

Continue stirring, repeating the word "Out" for as long as you can. Visualize the disease leaving the person's body and going into the ground. Put the other picture under the green candle. Light the green candle, saying:
"The air, the fire, the water, the health
Return, return, return, return!"

As both candles burn, walk to each quarter, clockwise beginning at the North, and ask for the banishment of illness and healing energy for your friend/relative. Return to the center of the circle and thank Spirit for helping you.

Pick up the African violet and ask the plant to speed the healing of your friend or relative and to provide for him/her. Then state:
"With harm to none.
May this spell not reverse
Or place upon me any curse.
May all astrological correspondences
Be correct for this working.
So mote it be!"

Close the quarters and release the circle. Let the soap continue to disintegrate in the water. Put out the candles. Light them again each night for five to seven minutes until the sick person completely recovers. Leave the sympathy items around the bowl, if you can, until the person gets better.

Give the plant to your relative or friend with appropriate instructions on how to care for the flower.
