Tax included Shipping calculated at checkout

Information & Ritual Uses

Ritual to terminate romantic relationships, business partnerships, and alliances. Also suitable for permanently cutting ties with soured friendships and those who inflict negativity upon you. The Cease & Release Ritual does not harm the target(s) in any way; instead, it eliminates their presence in your life or in each other's lives. This ritual cuts all energetic and emotional ties, and makes sure your paths (or their paths) no longer cross. 

The Cease & Release Ritual Set includes:

In addition to this Ritual Kit, you will need the following:

  • Photograph of the person you want to banish from your life. If performing this ritual to break up another couple or a business alliance, you will need their photo. 
  • Pen
  • Lighter/matches
  • Fireproof ritual surface, such as a metal or stone tray.
  • Small fireproof bowl for smudging


All RootsHerbs, and Ritual Blends are packaged in thick glass 2 oz jars. The color, jar style, and closure may vary.

Ritual Instructions

The Cease & Release ritual can be performed for up to 6 consecutive nights, depending on the intensity of the situation. ​​

    • If the person you are trying to banish is a stalker, you will need to perform this ritual for six consecutive nights. If doing so, begin the ritual six nights before the Dark Moon. 
    • If the relationship you are choosing to now end is somewhat amicable, but you are trying to cut all ties energetically, performing this one time, within 12 hours of the Dark Moon, will be sufficient. 
    • If you are somewhere between the two examples, perform the ritual for three consecutive nights, with the third night being on the Dark Moon.

Step 1: Write the person's name on the back of their photograph along with:

"{name} our paths have split and shall never cross again. Now farewell and stay away!"

Step 2: Place the photograph on a fireproof surface. Roll a single Ritual Candle across the photograph, allowing the beeswax to pick up the energy of the target. 

Step 3: While the Ritual Candle remains on the photo, dust the candle with 1/4 teaspoon each of the Slippery Elm Powder and Verbena Powder, allowing the excess to fall upon the photograph. Firmly roll the candle in the herbs over the photograph. 

Step 4: With great power and authority, exclaim your written statement while looking in the target's eyes nine times. 

Step 5: While holding the Ritual Candle in one hand, light it and hold it at a 45-degree angle over the center of the photograph. Create a small pool of wax in the center of the photograph; 3-4 drops of wax will do. Stick the base of the Ritual Candle directly into the pool of wax and hold it for about 5 seconds until the center hardens just a bit, and the candle is standing upright without any assistance.

Step 6: Allow the candle to burn all the way down.

If the flame catches the photo on fire, allow the flame to consume it. It is a good sign.

If the flame extinguishes itself before destroying the photo, relight the photo and burn it to ash. 

Step 7: Repeat this ritual 2-6 times, depending on the severity of the situation. 

Step 8: On the final night of the ritual, which should be the Dark Moon, light the Cedar Smudge Bundle from the light of the candle. While looking at the target's eyes on the photograph, chant 

"{name} our paths have split and shall never cross again. Now farewell and stay away!"

Smudge your entire body, including the soles of your feet and about 5-10 inches above your head. Tap the ashes of the Cedar Smudge into the fireproof bowl; you must collect the ashes for ritual remnant disposal. 

Step 9: Allow the Cedar to continue smoldering as the Ritual Candle burns. When the Ritual Candle flame has consumed the photo, place the ashes into the fireproof smudge bowl. Mix all the remnants, including those from the prior nights, into the same bowl. 

Step 10: ​What you do with the remnants of your ritual is just as important as the ritual itself! The ritual does not end when the candles extinguish - it is not complete until you return the remnants to the Earth. The Earth and the universal energy carry and propel your magick and your spellwork to its full completion. 

As the sun rises the next morning, pack a trowel (small gardening shovel), a small hammer, the Wrought Iron Coffin Nail, and the ritual remnants. Head out to a nearby forest or hiking trail. As you make your way into the forest, try to find an unmarked or low-traffic trail. Dig a small hole in the ground on the trail, or slightly to the side of the trail. Place the remnants into the hole and cover back up with dirt. As you strike the Coffin Nail through the grave of your ritual remnants, exclaim:

"{name} our paths have split and shall never cross again. Now farewell and stay away!"

Walk away and do not look back. Avoid that park/forest/trail for a full (29-day) moon cycle.
