While I was taking a break from writing, I worked on some other aspects of my life and practice. One of those was reorganizing my Craft supplies – putting herbs into (labelled) storage containers, sorting candles, and generally moving things around so that I can get at what I want more easily.
Along the way, I’ve selected a handful of materials to put in a small cabinet – about the size of a medicine cabinet – which I’m going to hang near my altar to have at hand all the time. I debated quite a bit about what to put in there, so I’m going to share my list here and ask in turn: What’s in your Witch-kit?
What do you use on a daily or near-daily basis? What are the things that you turn to most frequently, both for planned and unplanned situations?
Two small candle-holders and an assortment of candles: several colors each of chime candles, Hannukah candles, and birthday candles
Small jars of some herbs: lavender, rosemary, juniper, juniper berries, holly berries (may switch this out for something more seasonal in the spring), chamomile, tobacco
Tiny (2ml) bottles of oils: peppermint, lavender, cedarwood
Tray holding pointed quartz crystal, a couple stones from significant places, and tumbled stones: clear, smoky, and rose quartz, fluorite, selenite, jet, amber, hematite, snowflake obsidian, malachite, garnet, amethyst, tiger’s eye, citrine, and lapis
Small boxes of stick incense: pine, cedarwood, sandalwood, amber, jasmine, vanilla, lavender, cinnamon
