Purpose: To bring on inspiration. For creativity.

Ingredients: Mason jar Small crystal Dried orange peels (two-thirds) Dried mint (one-third)

2 drops orange essential oil 1 drop mint essential oil Square piece of black cotton fabric

Rubber band Orange fabric paint or orange acrylic Orange ribbon

Note: The color orange is the color of creative energies.

The shading (how dark or light the orange is) that you use will denote the level of creative

energies you wish to channel. A dark orange will take you deep into the creative energies

while a light orange is less intense.

Moon cycle: No moon cycle is selected for this spell because all phases of the moon hold

different levels of creative energies, including the dark moon. If you follow moon phases,

choose the cycle that fits your purpose best.

Gather ingredients. With a clean and dry jar before you, place the mint first and then the

orange peels inside, filling it up about two-thirds of the way. Add two drops of orange

essential oil and one drop mint essential oil. More if you are using a large mason jar.

Stir ingredients together. Take the small crystal in your hand and say something such as:

"Creativity to me

In whispers and dreams

And visions that gleam."

Place the crystal inside the jar with the potpourri.

For the lid, cover the opening of the jar with black fabric so that the side of the fabric

hangs down over the edges about 2 inches.

With a pencil, mark the center top of the fabric.

Take the fabric off the jar, lie it flat on a hard surface.

Using orange paint, acrylic or fabric paint, paint on a spiral.

While the paint is drying, cover the jar temporarily with a lid so that it doesn't get spilled.

Spiral: The spiral is a symbol of the dance of life. It shows the continuous cycle of ourselves

going inward (within ourselves/our psyche) and then going outward (expressing ourselves).

Black: The black fabric in this spell is used as an absorption color.

Black absorbs all colors, all energies.

By placing the orange spiral on this we are signifying just what those energies are that the

black is absorbing, all creative energies.

Once the paint is dry, place the fabric on the jar once again.

The spiral should now be on the centered top of the jar's mouth.

Holding the fabric in place, wrap the rubber band around the sides to hold it in place.

Next, tie the orange ribbon overtop of the rubber band.

Keep this inspiration jar in your work area, where you do your writing, painting, drawing,

or keep it by your bed to bring on inspiring dreams.
