Mabon Simmer Pot

Mabon is the 2nd Harvest of the year and falls on the Fall equinox. During this time, we give thanks for the harvest and blessings bestowed upon us. Make sure to give yours. With this simmer pot as you add each ingredient be sure to give your thanks for that item and the work it provides.


• Water, moon water if you prefer

• Nutmeg Fresh or ground. For luck, prosperity, and clairvoyance

Coffee Grounds or brewed. For energy, spell boosting, and removing blockages

• Oranges 1 to 3, depending on your pot size. Sliced in the whole ring slices. For healing, prosperity, and love.

• Cloves whole, but you can use ground cloves. For friendships, protection, and banishing negativity

• Vanilla Pure extract, essential oil, or whole bean. I personally use extract when I don’t have whole beans. For passion, mental awareness, and love.

• Star Anise Whole, 5 or 7, depending on pot size. For clarity, psychic awareness, and as an offering.

• Apples Freshly picked is best. 1 to 3, depending on pot size. Sliced horizontally so that you see the star shape the seeds and pods make. For protection, divination, and love.

• Cinnamon Ground or whole sticks. For prosperity, passion, and energy.

• Pomegranates 1 to 2, depending on pot size. Sliced, or just the seeds. For abundance, divination, and fertility.

• Mulled wine (optional) 1/3 cup to 1 cup, depending on pot size. Mulled wine infused with herbs and fruits including in the simmer pot is the best. To enhance intention.

Ground and center before all else.

Cleanse your space next.

Cut and prep everything, always keeping intentions in mind.

Put everything in the pot, largest first, stating your intention and thanks for each individual item.

Lastly add the wine, if using, and then fill pot until about ¾ full with water.

Turn stove on high. Bring pot to a boil, then lower heat all the way, and let it simmer.

Stir pot through the day. Repeat a personal mantra, chat, or simply give thanks every time you stir this pot. Stir to the right to attract, and to the left to banish.

Inhale the scents, let them wash over you.

Let pot simmer until all liquid is gone.

Once the liquid is gone, and the moon is out, take pot outside and return it to the Earth, giving your final thanks for the day.
