The Healing Poppet

Fashion small sticks of applewood into a human frame
and cover with green cotton cloth to form the poppet. Fill
with the following coarsely ground herbs: angelica, eucalyptus, ginseng, life everlasting, peppermint, spearmint, and
wintergreen. Attach a photograph of the person to be healed
to the poppet.
Begin the spell during the waning moon. Place the
poppet on your altar next to a black candle. Using your
athame, inscribe the person’s name into the candle along
with their ailment. Light the candle. Hold the poppet in
front of the candle and chant the following seven times:
I take away hurt, I take away pain
From you body, this illness I drain.
Visualize the illness leaving the poppet (and therefore
the body of the sick person), and flowing into the black
candle. Let the candle burn out. Place the poppet in a safe
place and bury the candle far from your home.
