Every now and then, we just have to get rid of negativity and banish something or someone from our lives.
Sometimes we can’t seem to put our finger on it – just something has to go.
Maybe it’s too much negativity on social media (no matter how much you try to reduce time online).
Maybe it’s your partner, spouse or family that’s in a funk and just in a bad mood.
Maybe you’ve been feeling negatively and just need to get rid of this vibe.
Whatever it may be, you may feel its time to clear the air, the energy around you and just “vacuum” it up, trap it and dispose of the negativity.
This Banishing Negativity Jar Spell works like any other kind of jar spell, commonly seen as honey jar spells and can be customized to how much you want to get rid of any negativity.
The spell can be worked over again and again, placing a new black candle on the jar and letting the candle burn completely down.
Burn the candle on the jar whenever you feel the need to get rid of negativity.
This jar spell can be done for 7 days in a row or for however long you desire until you feel a difference in the energy and vibes around you.

How to Prepare the Banishing Negativity Jar Spell
Have all the items ready in front of you.
Cleanse each item spiritually and/or physically if needed, blessing them if you desire and setting the intention that each item will remove negativity from you and your life.
While keeping your intention firmly in your mind, add the salt to the jar to cover just the bottom less than half an inch to an inch.
Then add the herbs one by one to the jar.
Place an even amount of the herbs into the jar to ensure that the amount of herbs that you use will all fit in the jar.
Fill the jar to almost the top, then add some salt to finish the jar.
When finished adding the herbs to the jar, add a few drops of your chosen ritual oil to the jar and then set your intention and mentally empower the jar.
This can be by drawing a pentagram or cross over the open jar three or seven times.
Seal the glass jar with the lid and set your intention again.
Dab a little bit of the oil on the lid of the jar and around the sides of the lid and jar.
Now with your tapered black candle, dress the candle with the same chosen oil for the jar spell.
Place some oil at the centre of the black candle and push the oil from the centre of the candle to the top end of the candle.
Then push a drop of the oil from the centre of the candle to the bottom end of the candle.
Do this on all sides of the candle.
To start working the banishing negativity jar spell, you can try one of two methods:
- Light the wick of the candle and drip enough of the wax onto the lid so that you can affix the candle to the wax on the lid; or
- Use a lighter (preferably a long candle lighter) to melt some of the wax on the bottom of the candle and affix it to the top of the jar lid.
Working the Banishing Negativity Jar Spell
Light the candle as needed and let the candle burn completely until it is finished.
Praying over the candle can have an amplified effect.
Be sure to keep the candle within your sight at all times and away from drafts, windows and anything flammable such as curtains or drapery.
If you must extinguish the candle before it is finished, extinguish the candle with a snuffer.
When relighting the candle, pray before lighting it and continue to pray as you light it then let the candle burn for as long as you are able to.
While this jar spell can be done anytime you feel the need, there are also times that may be more helpful for this purpose.

A few pro-tips for working with candle jar spells:
As you continuously work with a jar spell, more and more candle wax will accumulate on the jar and will spill over to the sides of the jar.
Keep a ceramic heat safe plate underneath your jar.
As the wax builds up after burning several candles on the jar, you will notice that it may become more difficult to affix a candle to the top of the jar.
If this happens, use a long candle lighter (often used for tall glass candles) and melt some of the wax on the top of the jar.
If you must, you can dig some of the wax off the top of the jar just enough to get a flat enough surface to affix a new candle onto the top of the jar.
An excellent tip from The Witch at The Witchery notes that you can recycle some of the wax that accumulates on the plate and melt it down again to make a new candle in a glass container.
When re-purposing candle wax, use the wax for the same intention as the previous spells (i.e. if for money, then use the wax for money spells; for banishing, re-use the wax for banishing, etc.)
Now cast away that negativity!
Until next time,
