Wiccan Supplies and Where to Find Them

Apr 2, 2008
Magickal results can be achieved without any tools or supplies. However, using tools and supplies add to the power of our mind by removing any negative energies and calming the mind while relaxing our senses so that our deep inner consciousness can work undisturbed to push forth our intentions with maximum effort.

The Pentacle is sometimes used as a focal point on the altar. It is also used to consecrate other tools or to calm the mind before rituals. The sign of the Pentagram when drawn on any item or tool is believed to cleanse the item of all negative energies.

The Broom of Besom is used to magickally clear any space from evil powers and to protect the house or other sacred areas from unwanted spirits. The broom may be made from natural twigs and leaves.

The Athame is one of the more popular tools. This is a long handled knife with carvings on the handles. It may be used to ceremoniously cast the sacred circle and invoke the deities.

The Chalice is a cup that may hold sacred water or wine. It is also used in rituals.

The Cauldron is a large vessel that is used to hold water or salt and may be used to make herbal potions or oils. It can be a regularly used kitchen pot that is cleansed just before a ritual.

The wand is sometimes made of a long twig or branch and is used define the sacred circle or to remove any negative energies surrounding the circle.

Some supplies are also used to enhance our magickal experience. They stimulate the senses and lead us into a relaxed, higher state of awareness. They also help us sharpen our focus, concentrate on our goals and boost our positive energy so that we are able to push it out with greater force than usual. This added boost will increase our ability to inspire the Cosmos to move in the direction our (now) stronger mind wills it to.


Candles are used in several ways. The colors of the candles are very significant in Witchcraft. Red Candles are used for romance, Pink for attaining love, Green for prosperity or money attracting spells, white for peace and purity, etc. Sometimes, runes or symbols or words are carved on the candles. At times, a hole is made in the candle by removing a bit of wax and the hair or nails of the person involved in the ritual is put into the candle and sealed with hot wax. At other times, the candle is anointed with oil or perfume to symbolize the intended result on the object of the spell. Candles are also used to burn paper on which intentions are written so that these meditations can be released into the Universe.


As witches, we respect the environment. It is our duty to preserve the richness of this Earth. We try not to use artificial tools or supplies. Plants are a source for many of our supplies. Sticks are used to make wands, broom, etc. In Voodoo magick, sticks and leaves are also used to make poppets which enhance our spells and rituals. Also, many witches are encouraged to have herb gardens from which we can make dried herbs, potions, oils, perfumes, incense, etc. Again, each herb has properties that enhance our experiences in the mystical realm. The aromas help calm our sense organs and magickally restore our peace of mind. Many of the herbs are used for protection or for purifying the mind and to get rid of negative energies.


Bells are also considered tools in witchcraft. The bell is used to drown out all extraneous sounds and allow our mind to focus on the ritual. It may also draw attention to people around so that anyone who is interested can gather at the ritual site.
