Stovetop Simmering Spice Potpourri - Fall
Simmer pots, also known as witch's brews or herbal concoctions, are a popular tool in witchcraft and various spiritual practices. They involve simmering a combination of herbs, spices, and other ingredients in water to create a fragrant and often magical brew. Here are some common uses of simmer pots in witchcraft:
Cleansing and Purification: Simmer pots can be used to cleanse and purify a space, objects, or even yourself. By combining herbs like sage, rosemary, or lavender in a simmer pot and letting the aromatic steam fill the area, you can help remove negative energies and promote positive vibes.
Setting Intentions: Many witches use simmer pots to set intentions and manifest their desires. They select herbs and other ingredients that align with their goals and infuse them with their intentions as the pot simmers. It's a way of charging the ingredients with magical energy.
Divination and Scrying: Some witches use simmer pots as a form of divination or scrying. As the brew simmers, they may interpret the patterns and shapes that form on the surface of the water as symbols or messages from the spiritual realm.
Aromatherapy and Mood Enhancement: Simmer pots filled with herbs and flowers can create a pleasant and soothing aroma that enhances the atmosphere during rituals or meditation. Specific scents can also be chosen to correspond with the desired magical or emotional outcome.
Celebrations and Sabbats: Simmer pots can be incorporated into celebrations of sabbats and other pagan holidays. Each sabbat may have its own specific blend of herbs and spices to evoke the themes and energies associated with that particular time of year.
Ancestral and Spirit Work: Some practitioners use simmer pots as an offering or tool for communicating with ancestors or spirits. The fragrant brew can be seen as a way to honor and connect with the spiritual realm.
