Making Poppets

Poppets are relatively simple to make, but they are a very powerful tool in spell craft.

Take a piece of cloth fold it in two, and cut out a human image (like a gingerbread man).

While cutting the cloth, concentrate on the person the poppet represents.

On the side that will be the "inside" of the poppet — you can write the person's name and whatever it is you wish for them (speedy recovery from illness, stop bad habits, etc).

Next take a needle and thread and begin sewing from the ear, downward toward the feet then up the other side, stopping short of the top of the head.

Now fill the two sewn together halves with Sage (or another associated herb).

Finish sewing closed.

Remember: If you're doing this for another — have permission first!

FYI: Sage has been a most sacred herb among many tribes of North America, who regard it as a highly religious. It becomes a most powerful broom to sweep away undesired influences from a circle. Sage carries the virtues of strength, mental health, wisdom, and banishes all evil.
