Anise is used in spell work. It provides protection, general good luck, increases psychic abilities, and protection against the evil eye.


Anise boasts a rich history of metaphysical uses across various cultures. Here’s a breakdown of its significance:

Protection and Purification:

It is believed to be a powerful shield against negativity. Burning it as incense or carrying it in a charm creates a protective barrier, warding off evil spirits and harmful energies.

Purification rituals often incorporate anise. Their cleansing properties are used to purify spaces, tools, and individuals.

Psychic Enhancement and Divination:

Associated with heightened intuition and psychic abilities. Their aroma is said to stimulate prophetic dreams and aid in divination practices.

Linked to Jupiter, the Roman god of prosperity and abundance. It is sometimes used in spells or rituals to attract success in business or financial endeavours.

Dreams and Astral Travel: Anise smoke from burning the seeds or diluted oil is used by some to enhance dream vividness and potentially induce prophetic dreams. It’s also believed to aid in astral travel practices.

How to:

  • Burned as incense for purification, protection, or psychic enhancement.
  • Anise can be carried in a mojo bag or pouch for protection, attracting love, or good luck.
  • Anise can be added to bathwater for cleansing and protection rituals.
  • It can be used to create infused oils. When diluted properly, these oils can be used in anointing rituals or diffused to enhance psychic abilities.

Metaphysical beliefs and practices vary widely. Research specific traditions to understand how they use anise seeds.
Anise essential oil can irritate skin. Always dilute it properly with a carrier oil before topical use.

Anise Protection Spell Jar
This spell jar uses the power of Anise to create a protective shield around you, warding off negativity and harmful energies.


Anise seeds
Black Salt (absorbs negativity)
Rosemary (for purification and protection)

Small pinch of chilli flakes (optional, for banishing negativity)
Small jar with a tight-fitting lid or cork sealed with black or red wax

Optional Ingredients:

  • Cleanse your workspace and all the jar ingredients with your preferred method (e.g., sage smoke, Florida Water, incense).
  • Focus on your intention for protection as you place each ingredient into the jar. Visualize a white light emanating from the jar, creating a shield around you.
  • You can place the jar near your doorway, under your pillow, or anywhere you feel it needs protection. Alternatively, you can hold the jar and recite an affirmation (you can write your own or use one you find meaningful).
  • As you visualise the protective shield forming around you, the energy within the jar grows stronger.
  • Recharge the jar under a waning moon (symbolic of letting go of negativity) or whenever you feel its energy needs a boost. Hold it with your intention, or place it under the moonlight.

Remember, the most important aspect of this spell jar is your belief and focus. The more you believe in its power to shield you, the stronger its effect will be.
