To Safeguard the Cook and Kitchen


  • Aloe
  • Garlic
  • 3 needles
  • 3 pins
  • 3 iron nails
  • Salt
  • Jar
  • Red wax

Aloe has long been considered a magical/medicinal plant. Grow one in your kitchen, or as near your kitchen as you can, to safeguard you from nasty kitchen accidents such as cuts and burns. Dab some aloe gel on your major kitchen appliances, tools, doors and windows to safeguard them as well.

Garlic is well known for its protective qualities. Place a bulb of garlic on your kitchen window, or hang a rope of garlic in your kitchen. Do not ever use these for food — remember, they are there collecting negative energy. Periodically, remove the garlic and bury in the earth. Remember to thank the garlic and the earth for their service to you.

A kitchen witch bottle will protect your food from contamination or burning.

There are many ways of constructing these, but some like to put three needles, three pins and three iron nails into a jar filled with salt. Seal it tightly and shake it vigorously nine times. Place three dabs of red wax along the seal. While you're constructing your kitchen witch bottle, visualize your kitchen as a peaceful, safe place, full of delicious aromas, and savory food. Place your kitchen witch bottle on a top shelf of your cupboard where it will not be disturbed.
