Banishing Spells – Learn to banish negativity away!

Banishing is a common practice for many witches because it gives us the power to protect ourselves and our energies from negative people and intents. 

It’s through banishing spells like these that we take back the power in our lives and change the outcomes of situations that could negatively affect us. 

Banishing refers to the process of driving away any unneeded or unwanted energy, habit, person or any other thing that is causing a witch to experience hardship.

Basically, it’s driving away the things that don’t serve you or someone else from your life. Many banishing spells are most powerful when performed during the waning cycle of the moon, but any time is appropriate as long as you feel it will serve your purposes.

 Perform this spell and sprinkle the finished spell bottle on the property of your target to get rid of those pesky behaviors once and for all.

This powerful banishing spell from In The Mist can be used as a general-purpose banishing spell. In this case, the spell is performed to banish negative behavior from another.

Next, write the name of the person on your sheet of paper and fold it up away from you into your desired size. Add banishing oil to your jar as you focus on the target of your spell as well as what you’d like to banish away.

All ill Wishes Now Aflame.”

A BLACK SALT BANISHING SPELL

Black salt is a banishing tool that so many witches find to be very useful.

Banish negative energy, hexes, or spells cast against you with this useful banishing spell.

Drawn into these limes it will be.
I am safe and secure
So Mote It Be!”
