When to do this ritual: On the Hag's Hare Moon,
during the Venus hour.
The "hag's hare moon" is the full moon of March
(the season of wildness, the moment of flowering, the time of renewal).
If you don't want to wait until March, simply do
the spell on a Friday, the day dedicated to Venus, during the waxing
moon (closer to the full moon is better.) If you don't have some of the
ingredients, you can use substitutions (such as tap or purified water in
place of rainwater, or a white egg instead of a brown one.) Remember,
your intention is the most important thing. All of these ingredients are
symbolic and are used to help focus your mind on your intention.
- A brush
- A pink candle
- Goddess oil
- Venus incense
- A mortar and pestle
- A bit of lemon juice
- Three tablespoons of flaxseed oil
- One brown egg
- Three tablespoons of maidenhair
- A pinch of ground ginseng
- Plastic wrap
- Three gallons of rain water
Instructions: Bend over at the waist and brush your hair upside down
for one hundred strokes, making sure the scalp is stimulated and all
residues of styling aids are gone.
Anoint the candle with the oil. Light the candle and the incense. Place
the lemon juice, flaxseed oil, egg, maidenhair and ginseng in the mortar,
and grind with the pestle until the potion is gooey.
During the Venus hour (or on a Friday, the day dedicated to Venus), recite the incantation over the potion.
Potion of witches with beautiful hair,
Adorn my head beyond compare.
Rich and thick the potion goes,
Absorb the sunshine and the glow.
Maidens weave the gorgeous threads,
That creates the hair upon my head.
Combine the the egg, magick, and grain,
And rise me beautiful with iris rain.
So mote it be
Work the potion into your hair until it is saturated. Place the plastic
wrap over your hair and let it sit. Go outside and soak up the sun. Feel
the potion tingling and revitalizing your hair. After a hour in the sun,
shampoo and condition your hair, but before your final rinse of the
conditioner thoroughly rinse your head in the rain water. Allow your hair
to air dry naturally. You will see a improvement in your hair instantly.
