Bottle-spells are a versatile type of magic which can be adapted to virtually any purpose. Everything placed inside the bottle as well as the bottle itself will speak to the nature of the work being done. They may be plain or decorated as in the Peaceful Home Jar (at left) which has been decorated with verses from the Holy Bible.
Break-Up Bottles are used to bring about the end of a person's relationship. Although they are commonly used on romantic or married couples, I have known folks to employ these types of spells to break-up friends and even business partners!
Timing the Spell
This spell should be begun the first night after the full moon and for 8 days thereafter for a total of nine days.
Working the Root
To perform this working you will need the following items:
- Personal Concerns
- Pen and Paper
- Cayenne Pepper
- 9 Pins
- 9 Needles
- Bark from a Dogwood Tree
Take your paper and fold it in half with a line down the middle. On the left side of the line write the name of one person nine times. On the right side of the line, write the name of the second person also nine times. When you are done, tear the names apart down the middle and say:
“With God’s blessing, as I tear these names apart in like fashion so may the bond between [N] and [N] be torn asunder”
Continue by pinning the names back to back and then folding the papers away from you several times saying:
“…may they turn from one another in anger, and hatred...”
Place the paper in the bottle in which you have place the cayenne pepper, sulfur, pins and needles and say:
“…may their every encounter erupt into heated arguments to that they bark and nip at each other like cats and dogs. May one’s thoughts of the other be like unto a pin piercing their brain and causing them pain and suffering unlike any other. In Jesus name. Amen.”
Seal the jar and using your own spittle draw a large X on the lid. Finally, shake the jar and pray
“As surely as Moses killed the Egyptian, in like fashion may the love and devotion between [N] and [N] be killed by the power of this root. As the staff of Moses swallowed up those of his enemies, so may the serpent of contempt consume them with anger and hatred for one another. As Moses separated the waters and led his people out of Egypt so may [N] and [N] now be separated and lead away from one another. As the Jews wandered in the desert and never found the Promised Land, so may these two wander away from one another never to meet again. In Jesus name. Amen.”
The following night and each night thereafter for a total of nine nights, you will take your jar and shake it violently reciting the “Moses” prayer above. On the final night, dispose of the bottle by tossing it in either running water or the middle of a crossroads.
