Sweetening Jars

Sweetening, or honey jars, come from Hoodoo practices. Hoodoo is a practice that was brought to southern USA during the transatlantic slave trade. Slaves were forced to abandon their beliefs for Christianity. Therefore, many Hoodoo practices have ties to Christianity. In Hoodoo, practitioners pray to saints or their ancestors.

Sweetening and honey jars have become widely popular recently and wiccans have begun to make their own versions of this spell. Those of you with African ancestors can pray over these jars as you make them. Others can pray to saints, or any other deity they choose. For the spell below, I am going to provide a Hoodoo honey jar, and a sweetening jar with Wicca attributes. Honey jars can take up to three months to work, but most good things in life take time. Enjoy, and remember that intent is everything!

Hoodoo Honey Jar


  • One mason jar
  • Honey
  • Parchment
  • Pencil and Pen
  • Herbs for your intentions
  • Candles for your intentions
  • Conjure Oils for your intentions


On the parchment, which should be the color of your target, and write their name three times in pencil. Turn the paper 90 degrees and write your name three times in pen. In a circle around the names, write out your wish, without lifting your pen, in a continuous circle. The circle must be complete and you must not lift your pen while writing the circle.

Place the paper in your jar. put in your herbs and fill with honey. Make sure the parchment is completely covered. Anoint your candle with the oil, and burn it on top of your jar. Allow the candle to burn all the way down. You can do this everyday, or once a week until the spell is done.
