The Healing Poppet

Fashion small sticks of applewood into a human frame and cover with green cotton cloth to form the poppet.

Fill with the following coarsely ground herbs: angelica, eucalyptus, ginseng, life everlasting, peppermint, spearmint, and wintergreen.

Attach a photograph of the person to be healed to the poppet.

Begin the spell during the waning moon.

Place the poppet on your altar next to a black candle.

Using your athame, inscribe the person’s name into the candle along with their ailment.

Light the candle.

Hold the poppet in front of the candle and chant the following seven times:

I take away hurt, I take away pain
From you body, this illness I drain.

Visualize the illness leaving the poppet (and therefore the body of the sick person), and flowing into the black

Let the candle burn out. Place the poppet in a safeplace and bury the candle far from your home.
