Together we will learn how to make a protection spell jar, with my step-by-step guide, so you will know exactly, how to cast the spell and help it manifest so you can finally feel protected, safe, and away from negativity. Let’s see now how to make a protection spell jar.


  • To make a protection spell jar you should follow these steps: Think of the kind of energy you need protection from, choose a small and sealable jar, write your intentions on a small sheet of paper and place it at the bottom of the jar.
  • Add your ingredients, seal the jar and place it under your bed or in a hiding spot and use the energy of the full moon to cleanse away negativity.

What is a protection spell jar?

A protection spell jar is a spell you cast on a magickal jar, you are going to make it with suitable ingredients, to send protection and safety your way, while cleansing yourself and those around you from any negativity or magick attacks.

Why do I need one?

A protection spell jar is your special ally when it comes to dealing with negativity, easily and effectively.


When do I need one?

You need a one when you no longer feel safe if you think someone has cast an evil eye spell on you or someone special to you when you feel negativity is taking over in your life and you cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel.

If you feel a heaviness on your chest, you don’t feel safe, if you sense something in your life does not feel right, or even if you are sure someone you know is casting spells over you preventing you from living your best life, the protection spell jar is the best option you have.

When exactly should I create one?

There is not a specific day of the week that is better than another. Make it when you want and when you are ready to commit to this kind of craft.

Is it effective?

It certainly is. As I said earlier, this kind of spell helps attract all negativity, while cleansing it with the help of herbs, sigils, and the positive energy you have created.

Think of the kind of energy you need to protect yourself from

Think of what is going on in your life? I mean, what do you think is going on, that thinks you want a protection spell jar? Are you aware of the reasons why you no longer feeling not safe anymore? Maybe you think someone has cast a spell on you? Maybe you sense someone has sent bad energy your way? Maybe you are having nightmares, or you think your house is haunted?

These are all valid reasons to make a protection spell jar, and it’s important to know what kind of energy you are facing, to use the correct ingredients to make your protection spell jar work at its maximum ability.

What if I am not sure about what is going on in my life? What if I don’t feel safe anymore, but I don’t know where this is coming from? If you want to dive into it you can rely on a tarot reading or, if you don’t want to know more about who’s behind these attacks and what kind of energy is not making you feel safe, you can make a general protection spell jar.

Choose a small sealable jar

It doesn’t matter about the size or shape of this jar, provided it is sealable, as you will put all of the ingredients in it.

Write your intentions on a small sheet of paper and place it at the bottom of the jar

This is an important step and I prefer doing it the following way. I write my intentions on one side of the paper and on the other side, I draw a protection sigil. If you need some guidance on how to create your protection sigil, check my guide.

The intentions you write should be similar to, “I want to feel protected. I want this feeling of fear, of uncertainty, and of feeling unsafe to go away”.

I am stronger than negative energy sigil
Sigil: I am stronger than negative energy

You can customize the wording as your goals dictate and reflect your situation.

For example, if you know someone is sending bad energy your way you can write something like: “I want (insert name) to stay away from me. I want to feel safe from his/her attacks.

Simply place it at the bottom of your jar when you have finished it.

Add the ingredients

Some ingredients are the foundation for protection spell jars like:

  • Salt (It cleanses any negative energy)
  • Chamomile (It creates soothing relaxing vibes and positive energy)
  • Lavender (It brings relaxation and peace)
  • Sage (It cleanses negativity and helps you restore safety and inner calmness)
  • Bay Leaf (A powerful herb to shift energy from bad to good)
  • Rosemary (Amazing for a good night’s sleep without nightmares)
  • Cinnamon (It brings protection)
  • Rose petals (Turn hate into love)

You can choose one, two, or three of these ingredients according to the kind of protection you would like to bring in your life.

RosemaryProtection, mental clarity, warding off negativity
BasilWarding off evil, protection, promoting positive energy
SaltPurification, cleansing, creating a protective barrier
MugwortPsychic protection, warding off negativity, enhancing intuition
Black TourmalineGrounding, protection against negative energies and psychic attacks
St. John’s WortProtection against negative spirits, banishing negative energy
Table 2: Other Protection Herbs and Correspondences

The most important thing is to create a base made up of salt at the bottom of the jar and then, simply choose the best herbs for you and your specific situation.

It doesn’t matter about the quantity as long as you feel comfortable and you can fill the jar completely.

Finishing it

Once the jar is filled with the ingredients, place a white candle on the top of the jar’s lid

First, light the white candle and let the wax drip onto the lid, to create a base, so you can then place your candle in it, to anchor the candle to the lid of the jar. Then, let it burn until the candle is completely consumed.

Place it under your bed or choose a hidden place in your house

When you are done, and the candle has created a good seal on the top of the jar, you can place the jar in the place you have chosen. For personal protection, I prefer placing it under your bed.

To protect a loved one you can place it on top of a closet in his/her room, or to protect your house you can choose a hidden place like in a wardrobe, in a pantry, in a box placed in the living room.

It really doesn’t matter as long as nobody can see the jar.

Use the energy of the full moon to cleanse negativity

Your protection spell jar is like a magnet for negativity, so it needs to be cleansed once a while. I prefer to place it under the light of the full moon every month, to cleanse all negativity gathered and to have it ready to protect me, my house, or my loved ones for the upcoming month.

When will it start working?

Actually, very quickly. It starts gathering negative energy from the moment it is made, it will take a while to gather it all, especially if you are under a black magick attack, but it will gather it all eventually.

Activation MethodDescription
Charging with MoonlightPlace the spell jar under the light of a full moon to infuse it with lunar energy.
VisualizationVisualize a protective energy shield emanating from the jar, surrounding you or your space.
IncantationSpeak a protection incantation or prayer while holding or focusing on the spell jar.
MaintenanceRegularly cleanse and recharge the jar’s energy by exposing it to sunlight or cleansing rituals.
