I love doing spells like this, as I consider it an insurance plan for the entire family that doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg. Personally I think it’s a good idea to do something like this at least every year, and if you have a family member who is not well, then consider doing family health work at least every month.

Here is an idea for a family health spell, to help protect your household from colds and flu.


• A wooden spoon

• A china bowl

• Some Mint

• A clove

• Some grated lemon peel

• A bay leaf

• Some rosehips

• A cotton or muslin handkerchief, or a mojo bag (as pictured)

• A red ribbon or other decorative piece you love.

The best time to cast this spell is on a Sunday.

Use the wooden spoon to mix all the ingredients together in the bowl, while you recite this chant:

“I conjure thee to be a protection, I invoke the Magick of old,

To keep my family healthy and well, So mote it be.”

Place the mixture onto the handkerchief and tie up the ends with the ribbon. Or If you’re using a mojo bag, place all the ingredients in the mojo bag, and seal the magic mojo bag while saying the incantation over and over.

Hang the healing pouch somewhere in your home.

Each month you may wish to cleanse your pouch in the light of the full moon, or by running it through some incense, and saying the incantation again.

Some people also like to feed the pouch or mojo bag with a oil relevant to healing, or with some rum. This lets the bag no that it’s still alive and important to you!
