Kitchen Witching is a simple and powerful way to bring magick into the hearth and home. By saying a simple blessing over the food you prepare and the ingredients you use while blending them together, you create a magickal bond for anyone that consumes your creations.
Mulled Wine is a great fall libation to indulge in with friends and family over the fall and winter seasons. With a blend of herbs and ceremonial liquors, it makes celebrating that much more intentional. In honor of Halloween, our spiritual contributor, Shawn, is sharing her very own recipe for Mulled Wine.
What you need:
- A bottle of dry red wine
- A cup of brandy
- An orange sliced in rounds
- Three cinnamon sticks
- A handful of Star Anise
- 7 cloves
- Two tablespoons of brown sugar
Making this in a pot on the stove, pour in the wine and brandy and put it on low heat. Say a blessing or intention over your collective ingredients and the pot, and charge it with a task to complete, like “Keep my friends and family happy” or “Bring us abundance during consumption.”
Make sure the heat is still low, enough to heat but not to boil, lest you burn off the alcohol. Wine and brandy are known offerings to our gods, goddesses, and ancestors, so we want to respect the process.
Drop in your oranges. Oranges are known to bring success and prosperity, and abundance in terms of friendships. They will bring the pot a positive, sunny energy.
Place in your cinnamon sticks one at a time, symbolizing the Triple Goddess: The Maiden, The Mother, and The Crone. Cinnamon is known to draw in love and money, with highly Venusian properties!
Drop in your Star Anise, which is highly protective, and then your cloves, which is both protective and abundant, to increase the power of the potion.
Finally, add in your brown sugar to sweeten the pot, and simmer between 15 minutes and a full hour, to make sure every ingredient gets saturated.
