Lucky Spell Jar

Nothing gives us the peace of mind and extra bit of confidence like having luck on our side. Whether you are starting a new business, going on a first date, or preparing to take an important exam – luck can give you the extra edge you need when things don’t feel entirely in your control.

One easy way to increase your luck is to create a luck spell jar. This simple craft project and ritual takes little effort, but can provide a lifetime of good fortune.

What You’ll Need

  • Glass or mason jar with a suitable lid
  • Fresh herbs (dried herbs will work too, but fresh is preferable)
  • Blessed salt, crystals and stones
  • Steel pins, silver flakes, gold flakes, or glitter
  • Needle
  • Candle
  • Pen and paper


  1. Cleanse and bless your jar. You can do this by placing it in the light of the full moon and a flame of a white Candle. Visualize your intention of having greater luck and ask the Universe to fill the jar with good fortune.
  2. Place your herbs, blessed salt, crystals, stones, and pins into the jar. We recommend bay leaves, lemongrass, patchouli, and jasmine – as these herbs will help attract luck with money, love, career, and spiritual luck. It can also be helpful to choose stones or crystals associated with luck – such as turquoise, carnelian, obsidian, and tiger’s eye.
  3. Add silver or gold flakes (if you have them) or glitter.
  4. Using the needle, write your intention for luck into a piece of paper (or parchment). This will vary according to your specific need for luck.
  5. Roll the paper into a tight bundle and insert it into the jar.
  6. Cover the jar and seal it with wax to ‘seal’ your intention and make the spell stronger.
  7. Finally, hold the jar in your hand and say the following words:

    “Luck of the moon, luck of the sun, luck be upon me before day is done.”

  8. Place your jar in an area that brings you positive energy and let it sit for at least one full cycle of the moon. You may even want to prepare a new jar each lunar cycle.

With luck spell jar, your luck can start to increase over time – as it works to you improve your life by drawing out good luck by the magnetism of the universe.
