Friday the Thirteenth - Again. So Good Luck Spells All Around - Again!

Hello, Readers, and good luck to You!
Funny thing - last time I wrote about Friday the 13th, it resulted in a record number of visits to Kitchen Witchcraft from all around the world.

I guess we all feel we need a little help and a little good luck on such supernaturally charged day. So, this year I've gathered quite a few spells for You all - something ceremonial and something informal, something symbolical and something practical, something for the altar and something for the stove. A bunch of luck and prosperity spells for the day that is known to be jinxed and bad for business.
As you will no doubt notice, most of these recipes call for similar ingredients: there are many variations, but cinnamon and nutmeg will be in there somewhere. I guess they are exceptionally lucky. The colour green is often present in these spells as well, symbolising luck and hope. I've put a [K] next to the spells that can double as cooking ingredients (apart from the very first recipe, the lucky salt, which is technically edible, but doesn't seem like it would make any dish better). Just in case you didn't notice Yourself that basil and oils are edible.
I've grouped them by type: powders, candle spells and wax magic, oils for witch bottles, gemstone spells and cooking recipes. Naturally, they can all be combined: prepare a witch bottle with luck oil, then use the oil to anoint a candle, then light the candle as You eat a lucky supper for maximum benefit within and without. Just don't try to munch the gemstones.

🍀 Lucky Powders and Salts

They are usually ground in a mortar or just mixed up and put in witch bags, or some other kind of receptacle. Whenever possible, take equal parts of everything, but an amount of sea salt that equals the others combined.
Salt for Luck:Jethro Tull Ask the Green Man - Cup of Wonder
  • Sea Salt
  • Allspice
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Basil
  • Green food colouring (optional)
Golden powder [K]:
  • Saffron
  • Tumeric powder
  • Ground ginger
  • Nutmeg powder
Luck and Prosperity powder:
  • White eggshells
  • Basil
  • Peppermint
  • Clover leaves

🍀 Candle Magic

  • One green candle
  • One gold candle
  • One silver candle
Light all three candles and bring them together, so that they fuse and mix as they melt. Leave them to burn out, then mix the three waxes together and fashion the resulting mass into something to carry around with you.
The green candle is for luck, health, and happiness. The gold candle is for material flourishing: prosperity, wealth, fortune. The silver candle is for spiritual flourishing: an abundance of insight, knowledge, and inner peace. I recommend to cut short stubs so that you don't spend hours waiting for it to happen and don't have to use up whole candles for one spell. (That's basically the opposite of sensible prosperity spells). Yellow candle can symbolise gold and white or light grey candle can symbolise silver.

🍀 Oils

They can be used in witch bottles, in food preparation if edible, or in baths and cosmetics if appropriate.
  • Sunflower oil
  • Cinnamon
Mediterranean Gold [K] Did you know that olive oil is sometimes called "oro liquido" in Spain?:
  • Olive oil
  • Fresh basil leaves
Lucky Perfume:This one is trickier. While lucky perfumes are great because of their intimate connection to the body, You don't want to go around smelling like gingerbread or pizza. So the ingredients used here will have to be different.
  • 10 drops of sandalwood oil
  • 5 drops of patchouli oil
  • 5 drops of rose oil

🍀 Gemstone Magic

  • 7 pieces of green gemstones (turquoise, malachite, green quartz etc. Emeralds are fine, too, but if You own seven emeralds You probably do not need prosperity spells.)
  • Green pouch
This one is to be cast on the full moon, with the stones being left overnight in the moonlight.  You can also imbue them with Your intention in many other ways (especially since it's not full moon right now) - by speaking it out loud, reciting a rhyming spell, by lighting up green candles etc.


Dishes prepared with magical ingredients are the core of kitchen witchcraft. And they have the additional advantage of feeding people!
Basically the Mediterranean Gold listed above, with cheese and pine nuts for good measure. You can have it standalone or add it to dinner, like spaghetti al pesto.
Carrot Muffins
Make with cinnamon oil for best effect, or just with extra cinnamon.
Apple Pie
Yes, the humble apple pie can be a great luck recipe, uniting the lucky and protective powers of cinnamon, cloves and apples.

Between all these simple and multi-purpose recipes, I hope You will find something to Your liking. Good luck!

Oh, and to all you people drawing pictures of stupidly pornographic female sex objects leprechauns? For some deranged reason? I hope Lady Luck takes her revenge on you.
