Sweeten-Them-Up Sugar Bowl Spell

Learn how to get someone to be nicer to you with this sweeten them up sugar bowl spell. #witchcraft #magick


Sugar bowl spells can be super easy to do and most people have sugar in their home, so it’s a quick and simple spell to do anytime.

If you’re familiar with honey jar spells, then you may already be aware of sugar bowl spells.


So what are sugar bowl spells used for?


Sugar bowl spells can be used to “sweeten” someone or a situation up to you.


For example, this can be done to get a potential partner or love interest to be sweet on you.

It can also be used to sweeten someone up that you may have an issue with or had an argument with.

Boss getting harsh on you? Try a sugar bowl spell to get them to start being nicer to you.


We’ll go over an outline for a simple sugar bowl spell that you can customize for yourself depending on your situation and needs.


Sweeten-Them-Up Sugar Bowl Spell


For this easy sugar bowl spell, you’ll need:


A jar or bowl or container


This can be made of glass, silver, bronze, gold or even plastic (like a Ziploc container).

The bowl or jar will need to have a lid to seal it tightly.

Plastic is generally not used, but if you’re really in a pinch and can’t find anything else in a hurry, then plastic isn’t so bad.


Witchcraft shouldn’t break your budget or have you going from store to store for the “perfect” item.


Feel free to re-use and re-purpose everyday items in your home.

When using any container or item for spells, remember to cleanse and consecrate the container or item first.

Sage, palo santo, incense or even Florida water are good examples for cleansing.




This can be white granular sugar, but other types of sugars can be used such as brown sugar.

For the sugar spell, you’ll want to use loose granulated sugar instead of sugar cubes.




For the spell, you can also use candles in addition to the sugar bowl.

The candle or candles can be placed on top of the jar or bowl (on top of the lid) or it can be placed next to or around the jar or bowl.


The candle colour should match your intention for the spell.

If you don’t have a specific colour that you need, then white coloured candles can be used to replace any type of colour.

Tapered candles are ideal, but if you can’t find or don’t have any tapered candles, then votive or even tea light candles can be used.




For this spell, we’ll also use ritual oils to add to the spell.

Depending on the type of spell work you’re doing, you’ll want to match the ritual or spell oil to the purpose of your spell.

We’ll give a few examples later in the post as we go over the spell.




Paper can be used to write your petition (purpose or desire for the spell) and/or name of the person you want to “sweeten”.

This paper is then folded up and put in the sugar jar/bowl/container and covered with sugar.

This paper can also be anointed with the oil that matches the purpose of the spell.

The paper doesn’t have to be big at all and can be done on blank scrap pieces of paper with enough room to right the name and your petition.



Outline for the Sweeten-Them-Up Sugar Bowl Spell


To begin, gather all the items needed for the spell:


  • Jar, bowl or container
  • Sugar
  • Candle(s) (optional)
  • Oil
  • Piece of paper (a small torn piece is best)


Cleanse and consecrate your jar, bowl or container and candles if you’re using any.


If you’re using candles, anoint your candle(s) with your chosen oil that matches your intention such as: Love oil, Influence oil or Boss Fix oil.

If you wish, you can carve the name of the person into the candle also.


The candle should match your intention, so if you’re doing friendship, pink or yellow may be best; romance and love, red; a boss, yellow or orange.

(These are just my personal colour references, but use what feels right to you based on your associations and traditions with colour magick.)


Take your piece of paper and write your petition and/or name of the person that you want to sweeten on you.


For example, you can write the name of:

  • a potential love interest
  • someone that you had an argument with
  • someone that’s mad at you
  • your boss’s name
  • your co-worker’s name
  • a family member’s name.


However, try to limit to one person per jar or if it is a group of people for the same issue (such as if you have two bosses or managers that you want to work on.)

Keep the sugar bowl spell to one purpose at a time.

If you have more than one person for different reasons, then it’s best to use a separate sugar bowl for that person.


For a petition, you can write something like:


“(Name of person), be nice and kind to me.”


Then fold up the paper to be small enough to fit in your container.


Take a dab of oil on your finger and put some of the oil on the piece of paper on all sides.


For example, if you’re working a love interest, you can use an oil intended for love and romance.

If you’re working to sweeten your boss (to be nicer to you or favour you), you can try Boss Fix Oil.

Influence Oil can also work as well to work on colleagues, acquaintances or anyone that you want to influence to favour you or to do what you want them to do.


Take your jar/bowl/container and pour sugar into it about almost half-way into it.

Place the piece of paper in the container then add more sugar on top of it until the paper is completely covered.


For extra good measure, you can add a drop of the oil again to the sugar and then add a bit more sugar to cover the oil.


Seal the container or jar with the lid.


Repeat the name of the person and your petition several times over the jar until you feel your intention is set.


Take your candle, and place on top of the jar/bowl or next to it (or around the jar/bowl if you have more than one candle.)


Recite the name and/or your petition over the candles and jar/bowl for as long as you feel you can keep concentrating on it.

Allow the candle to burn safely until it can extinguish.


If you can’t let it burn on its own, snuff out the candle (don’t blow it out) and relight it when you can be near it.

When you relight it again, recite the name of the person and/or petition over the jar/bowl and candle for as long as you feel you can do so.


After the Sweeten-Them-Up Sugar Bowl Spell


So when you’re done the spell, the candle is out or if you didn’t light a candle and you feel it’s time to put the bowl of sugar away, what next?


What do you do with the sugar and paper after the spell is done?


Since this is a spell that you’ll likely want to keep working even after the spell is done, you may want to keep it stored away in a safe place for the long term.


This is a spell that you can do again and again.


You can later take the paper and anoint it again with oil to “freshen” up the spell.

Place the paper back in the sugar and burn a candle next or on top of it again (anointing the new candle also.)


You may also decide to renew the sugar after a while and add new sugar to the spell.

To dispose of the sugar from the sugar bowl spell (whether you want to dispose of it or replace the sugar), you can bury it on your property with the paper or keep the paper and reuse it in new sugar in a bowl again.

If burying the sugar on your property, be sure to bury it deep enough so that animals won’t easily dig it up (since the sugar will have traces of oil on it that could be harmful.)



Customize your Sugar Bowl Spell


This sugar bowl spell is just a simple outline that you can customize to make it your own.

This spell can be done within a cast circle, sacred space, or any place that you usually do your spells and magick.

Feel free to customize it any way you want, with any petition that you want to help make someone be kinder or sweeter to you.

  1. Hi how are you? I made a sugar water jar spell one month ago after one month some signs of its working are noticeable gradually. I have a question last night but when i was shaking this jar randomly some of its sweet liquid came out of it quickly. Do you think this will have any effect on my spell results and manifesting my desired outcomes? Please answer thanks very much


    • Hi! I would imagine the results may “leak” or weaken energetically, but I believe it can be amended or “patched up”. If it happened to be, I would find a way to “seal” it again such as with an oil to match the intention and put oil around the lid and edges of the lid, a candle on the top (if possible) to seal some wax on it and then depending on the intention, charging it under the next new moon or full moon. This can “seal” and “feed” your jar. Hope that helps! 🙂


      • You mention influence oil but I can not find what it is or how to make it. Can you elaborate or point me in the right direction please?


      • Unfortunately the shop that I used the influence oil no longer has it available and not sure where else to get a similar oil. I may suggest a “controlling oil” if desiring to change someone’s behaviour. Original Botanica in NY, USA has Controlling Oil available in different sizes: https://originalbotanica.com/controlling-magical-oil
        Other oils such as to influence or sweeten a boss or manager may be best with a Boss Fix oil. There may be other alternatives to an influence oil but this may depending on the nature of the work (i.e. love, work, business, friendships, enemies, etc.) which then other items/ingredients could be added to amplify the intention.


  2. Hello, please help me. I did the sweeten jar spell and my husband began yelling at me for no apparent reason. I have put this down to resistance to the sweeten jar spell but i need your advice and clarity. Is his anger towards me a reaction to the jar and if so, should i keep doing the jar spell and remain optimistic. Thank you


    • Sorry for the delay. We had a power outage due to tornadoes over the weekend. I may suggest searching about honey jar spells. However you may want to try spells with black candles first then follow up with white candles. This may help to clear negativity then bring positivity. If you live in Canada or elsewhere, try thewitchery.ca and get “Influence” powder and/or oil. This can help influence behaviour but can take continuous work. If you live in the US, I would suggest a “Peace” candle by Haus of Hoodoo that stocks her candles usually on Saturdays at 6pm CDT/CST time. Or try a place that sells hoodoo “peace” candles. They are usually white. You may need something a little stronger than a sugar spell jar. Herbs that promote peace (a search online may help) and white candles, maybe rose petals dried and grounded (in white, pink or yellow colour – but not red). You can try a herb satchet with herbs that promote peace and happy home and burning white candles, to pray over and keep in your home. Hope that helps.♡


    • I feel that the more specific the target is, the better any working will be. Each member of the family has their own energy and it may become too generalized to “lump” individuals together if your intent is to influence each of them separately and yet as a whole. It can be done to add to one jar, but it may take a lot of intent and additional herbs to make it work. But if there is the risk that the jar won’t be successful if just one of the members is more resistant to the influence.

      For this purpose it may be better to do a 7 day candle working. If you are working to create harmony and peace in your home to get everyone to get along, a Peace in the Home 7 day vigil candle may work better.

      A search online for “peace in the home candle” can find you shops that sell it based on where you live. If you want to buy from Canada and have it shipped to you, Mojolife has this one and it’s very affordable: https://mojolife.ca/products/copy-of-la-madama-candle-crusader

      Hope that helps!


  3. Heey love i did a sugar jar spell but i don‘t wan‘t it anymore i can‘t bury it or throw it in water can i just open it and flush it down the Toilette or throw it in the bin? I just don‘t want it anymore sorry for my bad english


    • Hi! This blog post by Grove and Grotto might help: https://www.groveandgrotto.com/blogs/articles/42338817-holy-crap-on-the-proper-disposal-of-magickal-trash

      The best bet when referring to that blog post is to also use your intuition and what feels right to you. Combine your intuition with what you feel might work from that site’s recommendations.

      Personally, if you want the sugar jar to keep working but don’t want it around anymore, burying it on your property may work. If you want to permanently get rid of it and want the working to fade away (gradually stop working), then burying off your property may work.

      If that’s not possible, then throwing it in the garbage may work but be sure to empty all the contents of the jar (not keeping the jar sealed) in a bag and then immediately throw it in a garbage bin away that’s not in your home / your property.

      Hope that helps!🐾


      • Hi. What if after burying it in my property with the jar intact( if i want it to continue working) I sell off the property and move to another place? Do i take it out and carry it along?


      • I think that might work if care is taken and the jar is wrapped and protected in the process. Jars for protection could likely be moved, but it’s always possible to make a new jar for the new place which may be a better option. For myself, I would make a new jar if for protection on the new property. But it may depend on what the jar is intended for that may affect if it should be moved or not.🐾


    • Evocation of invocation aren’t necessary unless you feel the need to do so, but “blessing” or “cleansing” your materials used in a spell is ideal. Sacred space or circle casting can be optional as well if you use these as part of your practice. 🐾


  4. Hi, I would like to do this spell to bring my Cousin and wife together and be nice & sweet to each other. How do i do it for them? My sis-in-law cannot do it where she lives right now. So can i do it for them?


    • You may choose to perhaps keep it with you, if you want it to keep working, but “bury” it (that is “store” it) someplace in your home. This can be the back of a closet or in a box, making a nice spot for it and wrapped in a cloth or fabric where it won’t be disturbed. I tend to keep mine when not in use on an altar and sometimes go back to use them as needed. If you can’t bury it on your property, but you do want to “dispose” of it in such a way, you can perhaps find a nice place in a forest, park or land that you can go to that you feel is special to you or that you visit sometimes or often. If you want to completely dismantle the jar and “break” it’s working magick, you could toss it into a garbage bin but then immediately remove it from your property, or ideally on “garbage day” so that the garbage is picked up that day and taken away from you. This can also be done in you want to bury it on a spot away from your property that you will not visit again do it could be someplace that you don’t frequent and can choose to “dump” / bury these things there if you want to get rid of them for good. Hope that helps!


  5. Thanks for sharing this great spell. I cast the spell awhile ago but now want to add something extra to the petition I wrote. Would I need to dispose of the sugar and paper in the jar and start all over again and cast a new spell or can I just alter the petition and refresh the spell?


    • I think it may be OK to start a new jar with new sugar but take a little bit from the old jar (some of the sugar) to add to the new jar and create a new petition with all your intentions(s) for it. This may make it like a continuation from the old jar spell while adding something more. Then the spell could be recast again. As long as the old jar contains what you want for the new spell jar plus your added intention/petition, this may work as a continuation and addition. Hope that helps!💜🐾


    • This would probably be on a case by case basis depending on the circumstances, situation and person(s) involved and may be best answered through divination such as tarot or other forms like dowsing (that would give a yes/no answer if looking for that answer) and also trusting your intuition. A divination or psychic reading before and/or after the spell may give better insight into the outcome and next steps to take.🐾🖤


  6. Hi i just did the sweeten spell today so i Praying for the best i love this mam he does anything but i need more attention sex and honesty loyalty and spending quickely family time together he not my husband yet but i no soon he will be bit i want the love to be strong between both off us


    • Hi there! For this type of situation, a honey jar with a hot/quickening ingredient may work better. The use of honey and some cinnamon in the honey jar may work better, and adding a love oil to the jar also and burning a red candle on top of the jar. Honey acts more steady and “sticky” than sugar which can give longer lasting results and emphasis. In addition to this, I found a video for how to make hoodoo red hot love rice that you may find useful: https://youtu.be/e-f-C9E2Q5w


  7. Hello,
    After making the sugar bowl, can you light the candles for the 1st couple of days so it can get more power for it to work?
    How long usual does it take for you to actually see it working?


    • A sugar bowl spell can be worked with th same idea as a honey jar in that the longer it’s worked with the more continuous results you will see. In my own beliefs and practices, most of the work that I do is done for at least 7 to 14 days coinciding with a waxing or waning moon commencing on a dark, new or full moon depending on the type of working. Sugar is a sweetener and generally is more subtle and can take longer, but can be effective if worked continuously. Adding an element to quicken a working such as coffee (grounds would be often more effective to add to a working) can help to speed it up. For an even extra boost, adding vervain herb is said to enhance the effect of other ingredients when added. If a sugar spell is worked each day some results may be seen around 7 – 10 days. Working during the waxing moon is the most effective with least interference or counter-resistence. Sugar spells like honey jar spells are best worked daily to get the most out of them. If they are forgotten and not tended to, then over time their influence and effect will fade eventually as they are organic materials and will naturally decay energetically without continuous energy fed into them. However, that being said, everything is also impermanent. Even if working with a sugar or honey jar spell eventually you may sense or feel that it’s not working after several months of tending to it. In that case, the jar has used up it’s own lifespan and a new jar will need to be made as a replacement and the old one disposed of in a way that’s customary to your practice or tradition.🔮🐾💜


  8. Hello just made a honey jar, did the writing with crayon, but the writing looked pretty bad. My question is does the writing have to be clear to read?


    • As long as the writing was done with focus and intent,it shouldn’t be a problem. If you wish and feel this will strengthen it, you can mentally impart your intent on the jar by meditating and focusing on it to reaffirm your intention.🖤🐾
