Honey Jar Spells: 3 Steps to manifesting a Sweeter Life


A honey jar spell, also known as a sweetening jar, is a form of folk magic used to attract positive energies, sweetness and harmony into a person’s life, relationships or a specific situation.

The primary purpose of a honey jar spell is to sweeten relationships, improve communication, reconcile conflicts and enhance overall well-being. The honey acts as a symbol of sweetness and goodwill, while the other ingredients added to the jar, such as herbs, oils, or personal items, are used to enhance the spell’s intention. By sealing these elements within the jar, and focusing your intentions on positivity and harmony, you create a spell to aid in manifesting the desired outcomes in your relationships or circumstances.

While honey jar spells can be powerful tools for attracting positive energy and fostering harmony, it’s essential to be aware of potential pitfalls that may arise during the spellcasting process. 

Honey Jar Spell Ingredients

When you create a honey jar spell, you can use various ingredients to enhance the intention and energy of the spell. While the specific ingredients can vary, based on the purpose of the spell and personal preference, here are some common items.


Honey is the key ingredient and represents sweetness, attraction, and harmony. However, if you prefer not to use honey you may substitute maple syrup, agave or any other kind of syrup


Depending on the desired outcome, you can add herbs and flowers such as rose petals for love, lavender for peace, chamomile for tranquillity, or basil for luck.

Personal Items

You may like to include items that symbolise the person or situation, such as photographs, written names or small personal belongings.


Essential oils or fragrant oils related to the desired intent can be used to anoint the jar. Consider using rose oil for love or lavender oil for peace.


Crystals can be a powerful addition to honey jars, Choose crystals with properties aligned with the purpose of the spell, such as rose quartz for love or clear quartz for amplifying energy.


A small candle can be placed on top of the jar and lit during the spell, representing the element of fire and the energy of transformation.

Affirmations and intentions

Pieces of paper with affirmations, wishes, or specific intentions written on them can be included in the jar.

Remember, these are just examples, and you can adapt the ingredients to suit your specific intention and what resonates with you. The most important aspect of a honey jar spell is infusing each ingredient with your focused intention and visualizing the desired outcome.

Here are some things to consider when crafting a honey jar spell

If you plan on creating a honey jar spell, there are a few things to be mindful of before you begin. Considering these ideas will ensure that your honey spell jar is effective and doesn’t create unexpected results. You should be mindful of using honey jar spells to manipulate others as this can lead to negative outcomes such as a complete breakdown of trust in the relationship or obsession.


Ideally, you will have a clear and specific intention for your honey jar spell. Vague or unclear intentions may lead to ambiguous results or make it challenging to focus the spell’s energy effectively.


Relying solely on a honey jar spell without taking practical actions or addressing underlying issues may create overreliance on the spell itself. Remember that spellwork is most effective when complemented by proactive steps in the physical realm.

Unresolved issues

Honey jar spells can be beneficial for promoting harmony, but they may not address deep-rooted or unresolved issues. It’s important to also address any underlying conflicts, misunderstandings, or emotional wounds that may be contributing to disharmony in relationships.

Honey spell jar Ingredients

  • Small empty jar
  • Good quality honey or syrup
  • A small pink candle such as a spell, chime or birthday candle to represent love and harmony (you may substitute with a white candle, tealight or an LED candle)
  • Small piece of paper
  • Pen or pencil
  • Any herbs, flowers, crystals or symbols you have chosen to match your intentions, such as lavender, rose petals, rose quartz, and/or love hearts or any items that have particular meaning for you (optional)


  • Find a quiet and comfortable space where you can perform the spell without interruptions.
  • Spend a few moments focusing on your intention for the jar. You may like to journal around the issue or do a short meditation to make sure you are clear on what you want to sweeten.

The spell

  • Take the piece of paper and write down your specific intention or the outcome you desire. Be clear and concise in your wording.
  • Fold the paper neatly, envisioning your intention being securely sealed within.
  • Hold the folded paper in your hands, infusing it with your focused intention. Visualise your desired outcome as if it has already been achieved.
  • Carefully place the folded paper into the empty jar.
  • Add the items you have chosen to go in the jar such as herbs, flowers, crystals or other objects or symbols, focusing on your intention for the spell as you add each item.
  • Take the jar of honey and open it, allowing the sweet aroma to fill the air. This honey will represent the sweetness and positive energy you wish to attract.
  • Pour some honey into the jar with the paper and other items. As you pour the honey, visualise the situation in your life being made more pleasant and harmonious by its sweet taste and rich golden colour. Repeat your intention aloud or in your mind as you pour.
  • Close the jar tightly, sealing your intention within. Hold the jar and visualise it filled with glowing, loving energy.
  • Gently shake or swirl the jar, allowing the honey to surround and infuse the folded paper.
  • Light the candle and place it on top of the jar securely. Allow the candle to burn, letting the wax drip down onto the jar. Alternatively, you can place the candle or LED candle beside the jar in a secure holder.

Closing the spell

  • Allow the candle to burn down completely, or extinguish it if necessary. You can relight it over the next few days until it has completely burned down.
  • Whenever you feel the need, hold the jar in your hands, connect with its energy, and reaffirm your intention. Visualise your desired outcome coming to fruition. You can light a new candle beside the jar and burn it periodically to increase the energy of your spell. Continue to work with your jar until your spell has come to fruition.
