Herbal Sachets for Healing

Herbal sachets are easy to make. All you need is a white handkerchief, a ribbon, and herbs. A small picture of the sick person can be placed inside the bundle, or you can put the bundle on top of the picture. Grind the herbs with mortar and pestle, and place them in the center of a new, clean, white handkerchief. Empower the herbs in the magick circle, using your favorite ritual format. You can also add small gemstones or other natural objects to the bundle. Close the bundle by pulling up each corner, one at a time, saying:
"From the east — healing and happiness for (person's name).
From the south — healing and happiness for (person's name).
From the west — healing and happiness for (person's name).
From the north — healing and happiness for (person's name).
From the four corners of the universe, I call for healing for (person's name).
In the name of Apollo, the healing has begun!"

Tie the bundle shut, chanting: "The healing has won, sickness is done!" When you are finished, say: "So mote it be!"

Give to the sick person as a healing charm, or if you think they would not accept it, place the bundle on your altar. Burn a white candle to boost the spell. You may wish to select three or more herbs from the general healing list below. Remember that fire and air work best together, and earth and water work best together. Because of certain planets rule more than one sign, or share signs, you may have a choice in element due to classical associations.
