Information & Ritual Uses

When a friend or family member struggles with emotional turmoil or an unpleasant life situation (death of a loved one, divorce, illness, etc.), use this Solace  Ritual to shift their surrounding energies and provide much-needed emotional relief. The recipient will instinctually feel an alignment change. A newfound resonance of peace and comfort will encircle them. With time and repetition, the stabilizing energy emanating from you will transition and morph to be their own. Once that occurs, they will be able to maintain this higher frequency of energies on their own.

If the suffering is self-imposed through self-sabotage or poor life decisions, this ritual can be the catapult for your loved ones to make real change and tangible progress in their lives. 


This Solace Ritual includes:


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

  • A printed photograph of the recipient, preferably from the waist up, with the eyes clearly visible. 
    • 5x7 size works well for this ritual, as it allows enough space to comfortably write on the front and back. 
    • Do not use professional photo paper or glossy paper. Basic white copy paper is best!
  • If possible, the recipient's biological material, such as a strand of hair (optional but strongly recommended)
  • Piece of tape to secure the biological material.
  • Fireproof ritual surface, such as a metal or stone tray.
  • Small fireproof bowl for smudging
  • Pen
  • Lighter/matches

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


Ritual Instructions

The Blessings & Relief Ritual ritual is most potent when performed within six days before the Full Moon (view calendar).  If, however, you feel the situation is urgent, don't delay and proceed regardless of the Moon phase. 


Throughout this ritual, the energies you emit to the target will be referred to as 'blessing'. This word is chosen both for its brevity as well as a reminder for you to consciously tune yourself to a heightened state of energetic generosity. 


Take a deep breath and allow your body and your mind to relax. First, affirm to yourself exactly what you are doing and your purpose for this ritual. Then, in your mind's eye, visualize the person receiving the blessing. See them in their current state, preferably receptive to energetically receive your energies. 


Step 1: On the back of the recipient's photograph, write their date of birth and full name. If using biological material, tape it to the back of the photograph on top of the name.


Step 2: Turn the photo to face you. On the outer perimeter of the photo, write an affirmative blessing that directly addresses the recipient's current problem or area(s) of energetic weakness.


"{name}, your sorrow has lifted. Your dark days are over. Your stronger sense of self has emerged. You are now filled with joy, love, and purpose. Your mind, body, and spirit are in blissful alignment. You are now healthy, whole, and complete."


Step 3: Hold one beeswax ritual candle between the palms of your hands. As you look at the eyes of the recipient, begin rolling the candle between the palms of your hands while chanting the blessing. This action infuses the beeswax with your energies and initiates the channeling process. 


Step 4: When the ritual candle is warm from the heat of your hands, place it directly on top of the photograph. Dust the candle with 1/4 teaspoon each of the Sacred Power Ritual Blend, Blossom Ritual Blend, and Verbena Powder. Firmly press and roll the candle in the herbal mixture over the photograph. Pure beeswax absorbs and expands energy incredibly well. This step is crucial, as it picks up both the energy of the recipient as well as the energy of the blessing. Some of the herbal mixtures will remain on the photograph, but most should adhere to the candle. 


Step 5: While holding the candle in your hands, look at the recipient's eyes and exclaim the blessing with great power and energetic force. Light the candle.


Step 6: Align your sitting position so that you can look through the exterior flame of the candle into the recipient's eyes. Allow your gaze to soften and turn out of focus. Visualize your emitted energy as a smooth coastal fog that moves over the recipient, gently suspending their current energy field and calming all emotions. 


Begin reciting your blessing as you move clockwise around the photograph, dripping wax on and around the text. With every drop of wax that lands on the photograph, a stream of your emitted energy enters their auric field and subconscious mind. 


Step 7: When the candle is over halfway finished, drip 3-4 drops of wax on the center of the recipient's photo, preferably near their heart, and firmly place the base of the candle into the pool of wax. Within a few seconds, the wax will harden, and the candle will be able to stand upright without any assistance. 


Step 8: Sit in a meditative state. Position yourself so that you can see slightly over the candle flame directly into the recipient's eyes. Your gaze should soften and become out of focus. Your own senses of sight and sound will drown out. In your mind's eye, see your target receiving and experiencing the blessing. Visualize them feeling better - physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.


Step 9: Light the Rosemary Smudge Bundle from the flame of the candle. As you chant your blessing, allow the smoke to carefully envelop the recipient's photograph. In your mind's eye, see the restorative energies of Rosemary permeate the recipient's energy field.

Note: You will only need to burn about 1/2 inch of the Rosemary Smudge in one sitting. To put out the smudge, firmly press it into a fireproof bowl until fully extinguished.


Step 10: The ritual candle will typically extinguish itself in its own pool of wax. Despite this, never leave the candle burning unattended. 

  • If the flame catches the photo on fire, quickly blow it out! Do not allow the fire to consume the photo! If this happens, this is a direct physical representation that the ritual must be repeated.
  • If the candle neatly extinguishes itself, it is a positive indication that your ritual was successful and was absorbed by the recipient.


Repetition: ​Depending on the circumstances, this ritual can be repeated for up to six consecutive nights. Use your intuition as your guide as to how long you will need to perform this spellwork on their behalf. For each repetition of this ritual, restart directly at Step 3. The same photo and blessing should be used throughout the length of the ritual. Alternatively, you may perform this Solace Ritual on a one-time, as-needed basis as needed.


Ritual Remnants: For best results, bury the remnants (herbs, wax, smudge ashes, and photograph) on the recipient's property. If that is not possible or impractical, you may do one of the following:

    • Bury the remnants at the base of an old, healthy tree in the forest.
    • Grind or chop the remnants into small bits and release them down a river or into the ocean.

IMPORTANT: If you are releasing any remnants into the wild (whether it's waterways or the earth), please make sure you are only using natural substances. All Old World Witchcraft products are 100% biodegradable, and most are even food-quality. Never use petroleum/paraffin/container candles for any spellwork, and most certainly, do not discard them into the wild.
