Calamus Root Witch Ball: Abundance and Protection
A Witch Ball is a protective charm traditionally hung in the home to ward off negativity and attract positive energies.


  • Clear glass ball (any size you like)
  • Calamus root (powdered or whole)
  • Dried herbs (optional): Rosemary (purification), Basil (abundance), Mint (protection)
  • Sea salt (purification)
  • White ribbon or twine
    Optional: Small objects representing your desires (coins for wealth, cinnamon stick for success)


  • Wash the glass ball thoroughly with soap and water. Let it dry completely. You can also cleanse it energetically by smudging it with sage smoke or holding it under running water while visualising negativity washing away.
  • If using whole calamus root, choose a small piece that will fit comfortably in the ball. If using powdered Calamus, measure out a teaspoon and use a Mortar and Pestle to grind down the root. Combine the Calamus with any optional dried herbs you wish to include.
  • Hold the sea salt in your hands and visualise it absorbing positive energy for abundance and protection. Place the root (and any other chosen herbs) and sea salt into the glass ball. Add any small charm objects you wish to include.
  • Carefully tie the white ribbon or twine around the opening of the glass ball, creating a loop for hanging.
  • Hold the witch ball and visualise it filling with white light. You can personalise this visualisation with your intentions for abundance and protection.
  • Hang the witch ball in a prominent location in your home, ideally near a window where it can catch the sunlight.

You can decorate the outside of the witch ball with paint and markers or by weaving additional herbs and ribbons around the loop.
Replace the witch ball every six months to a year or whenever you feel its energy has diminished.

Important Note: Calamus root can have psychoactive effects and should not be ingested.
