It’s that time of the year when sinuses, allergies, colds, and the flu are more common. This is a simple spell to aid in the healing process.

Disclaimer: This spell is by no means a substitute for medical treatment, and should be used as a supplement to assist in any treatments. Magic is not a cure-all, and I am writing as a witch, not a medical doctor.

  1. First, you’re going to want to pick out the colors of thread/ribbon to use for your knot bracelet.

From The Element Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells:

  • Black: physical and mental exhaustion
  • Blue: emotional imbalance, PTSD, throat, speech, headaches, toothaches, insomnia
  • Brown: vertigo, disorientation, negative psychic energy
  • Green: physical healing, ulcer, high blood pressure, heart trouble, cancer
  • Orange: bowel and digestive disorders, arthritis, asthma, fevers, bronchitis, and related bronchial ailments
  • Red: physical disabilities, blood disorders, immunodeficiency disorders, vitamin deficiency, impotence, infertility
  • Yellow: stomach problems, skin disorders, depression
  • *Do not feel that you need to stick to these associations. These are simply suggestions. If you associate a color with something different, go with your gut feeling.

2. Once you’ve picked out your colors, cut the thread/ribbon in a length long enough that you can wear it as a bracelet with knots in it. If it’s too long, you can always trim the end. *You don’t have to wear it as a bracelet, but may want to so you remember to untie the knots. Another option is tying it to a bed post.*

3. Tie seven knots into the string of threads/ribbons. While doing so, visualize the medical problems transferring into each knot.

4. Each day, for seven days, untie one knot per day while visualizing relief from medical problems.

5. On the seventh day, you will dispose of the string.

  • Option 1: Throw the string into running water, such as a stream, flowing away from the person with medical problems.
  • Option 2: Burn the string in a fire-proof container, such as a cauldron.
