| To be used before and/or during all forms of magical rites. This formula boosts your reserve of personal power. Use at least four cups of water to simmer the following mixture: |
4 tablespoons of dried orange peel
4 tablespoons of whole allspice
2 tablespoons ground ginger
2 whole carnations (preferably red)
or 1 tablespoon of ground cloves
Charge the herbs and spices while mixing them in a small bowl. As you mix them, say these or similar words:

and so mote it be!
Simmer and let the herbs’ powers fill the air as you do your magical working. (Remember to turn off the stove after your ritual.)
