When it comes to magickal herbs cinnamon is one of my favorites. There are several great magickal properties of cinnamon anyone can take advantage of. Like Lavender, this herb has a wide variety of uses. Here are some great ways to use Cinnamon in your magic along with all of the basic information you need to help work cinnamon into your favorite spells.
The Magickal Properties Of Cinnamon
Smudging with cinnamon
While witches are known for burning sage like it is going out of style my go-to smudge is actually cinnamon. This grounding herb is great for clearing out negative energy and replacing it with a calm grounded energy. I prefer the smell of cinnamon to smudging with sage and have no issue saving the sage for when I need to pull out the big guns around the house. Cinnamon is a great option for the closet witch because no one will question cinnamon sticks in your kitchen and when people stop over and your home smells like cinnamon they won’t bat an eye. Unlike sage that can often smell like you have been smudging your home with a particularly poignant strain of weed.
Smoke from burning cinnamon can be used for cleansing and blessing a space or items such as crystals or magical tools.
Using cinnamon for grounding
One of my favorite uses for cinnamon is for grounding. I have issues with having way too much energy from others at the end of a long day. If you are an empath I am sure you understand the feeling. No matter how many guards you put up you just can’t keep it all at bay. Cinnamon can be used in a culinary capacity, burned, or diffused as an essential oil to help you ground. Try grounding out with a big cup of Moon Milk.
Cinnamon is a great herb for attracting money. This herb is easy to come by and really cheap making it a great option for when you are low on money and needing a magical boost to your coffers. The best part is most of us have either cinnamon sticks or ground cinnamon in our kitchen.
Cinnamon makes a great addition to any protection magic. Add it to your favorite protection spells. I like to keep a bunch of cinnamon sticks tied with a ribbon near the doors to protect our home and encourage grounding as we enter the home.
Cinnamon is a strong herb that is great for calling any form of success to you. Add cinnamon to your spells when working towards success. Cinnamon Essential Oil on a diffuser necklace while you work on your goals.
Cinnamon for love and sex magic
Cinnamon is a natural aphrodisiac. Cinnamon is grounding and triggers the release of the cuddle hormone oxytocin. This makes cinnamon a great addition to love spells or as part of any sex magic you are working on. Keep in mind that sex magic deeply correlates with money magic so if your partner is up for joining you have a little fun with this one.
Magical childbirth aid
While cinnamon should be limited to normal culinary amounts during your pregnancy childbirth is a whole new ball game. When I was pregnant with my last baby that went overdue I started researching how to use magic as part of childbirth. One thing I discovered was that the cinnamon I love so much can release oxytocin and in turn trigger contractions. To do this boil a few cinnamon sticks in a cup of water to make a very strong cinnamon tea. This tea can help stimulate contractions and can be a great tool in magic designed to induce an overdue pregnancy or speed up a stalled labor.
Using cinnamon in everyday magic
Magic comes in simple moments in our lives. When cooking add a dash of cinnamon with intentions for the goals you are working towards. This simple way of working magic into your everyday life can be done anywhere and used in your own personal practice of magic.
