How to make a Witch Bottle

How to make a Witch Bottle
Image source Tumblr 

First up lets talk about What is a Witch bottle

A little bit of broken glass, rusty nails, hair and fingernail clippings placed inside of a glass or ceramic bottle. Sounds rather interesting don't it, but why would you do that? What purpose does it serve? What symbolism is trying to be conveyed? 

What was just described is what is generally referred to as a Witch Bottle. It is used mostly for protection and banishing, though I have personally used them for drawing and wish magick as well with great success. Bottles such as these have been found in rivers and lakes dating from the Middle Ages, and closed up in walls into the present day. The size and contents vary, but the purpose is the same, to banish evil, keep bad luck away, and to protect the home. Traditionally they were made from Clay Pots as  Glass bottles were hard to make back then
today its easier to obtain a glass bottle or jar  Alcohol bottles such as Vodka or Wine bottles I find work best

There is no one single way to make a Witch bottle as it Varies depending on what kind and what its use will be

some suggestions of ideas are  
The rusty metal, such as nails, razor blades and wire, broken bits of glass and pottery, thorns from various plants, and anything else sharp and/or rusty are placed into the bottle to "keep away" whatever it is that you are trying to banish. You want to make it as uncomfortable seeming as possible. Add to that a lock of hair, fingernail clippings, a picture, or at the least a name on a piece of paper to that. This now gives a connection to what you are banishing, be it a person or just bad luck. Many instructions for making witch bottles say to use urine to fill the bottle, giving a bit of yourself to the power of it. I feel this is entirely up to the person creating it. If they are uncomfortable doing that, how effective will the overall spell be? If they are worried about that and concentrating on that aspect, will it weaken the overall ritual? Using water is just as effective, and much safer. Some Witches fill the bottles with Spirits, Sand, Dirt, herbs or even salt.

There is no Wrong way to make a Witch Bottle as there are so many Traditions that are unique from all over the world , All that matters is your intention 

                 This while it is Pretty Is NOT a Witch Bottle  this is a Fluffy Bottle of Fluffy Herbs
