This is water that has been infused with the magickal energy of basil. Also known as Witch's Herb, basil…
Rosehips, also called rose haws or heps, are the fruit of the rose plant. Rosehips are especially effective in career, good fortune, money, prosperity and success magick. Rosehip water has been infused with the magickal energies of this fruit. You can easily craft your own Rosehip Water with the following spell or with the more potent brewed Rosehip Water II.
It is important to use organic rosehips, which are grown without pesticides or other chemicals, especially if your Rosehip Water will be ingested, applied to skin, or used in a magickal bath. For an added magickal boost, use organic rosehips from rose plants that you’ve grown yourself. It is equally important to use distilled water as it is contaminant-free which will keep your Rosehip Water fresh longer.
Tools & Ingredients:
- 3/4 cup fresh or 1/2 cup dried organic rosehips
- 2 cups of distilled water plus extra for washing if using fresh rosehips
- 1 tablespoon of good quality vodka (optional)
- a saucepan with a lid
- a wooden spoon
- a clean glass jar or bottle with a tight-fitting lid or stopper
- If using fresh rosehips, go through them and remove any mouldy, mushy, or slimy fruit and then wash them thoroughly with the extra distilled water.
- Bring 2 cups of distilled water to a boil in the saucepan and then remove from heat.
- Add the rosehips, pushing them under the water with a wooden spoon.
- Cover the pot and allow the rosehips to steep in the water for several hours until it cools down completely. During this time, push the fruit beneath the water’s surface with the spoon.
- Once completely cooled, pour the water through a cheesecloth or strainer to into the jar or bottle to separate the rosehips.
- Squeeze the rosehips in the cheesecloth or press them in the strainer with the wooden spoon to get any remaining liquid from the fruit.
- If you’re not using your Rosehip Water in a spell right away, add the optional vodka as a stabilizer to keep it fresh for up to 3 weeks in the refrigerator.
- For a magickal boost, Rosehip Water can be used as a replacement for plain water in career, good fortune, money, prosperity and success spells that call for water.
- It can also be added to a magickal bath to increase its potency.
