The Cinnamon Witch
Okay, it is no secret that I love cinnamon, hence why that’s my magical name. The smell, the flavor, the look of it just makes me happy. During this time period you know I am doing a Moon Sun Mylk Cleanse until December 20th. I briefly spoke before about the health benefits of the spices and herbs I am taking but what about magically? When I am doing ritual I actually love burning a cinnamon stick for smudging and heightening the essence of its magic. The first time I actually ever heard of the magical uses of it was when I was still just a solitary witch back when I was nineteen and one of my best friends introduced me to a movie/ book called The Mistress of Spices. If you haven’t seen it and you are a magical being I absolutely recommend it. First off it stars Aishwarya Rai who is fucking gorgeous and has such a sweet heart. It is about an beautiful Indian medicine woman and how she uses her knowledge of spices and herbs to help heal her customers who come into her store. The store by the way is a freaking dreamland and something I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED. So I am just saying if anyone wants to help hold a witch sister down, I am open to discussion! In the movie she has a customer who has a teenage boy in school dealing with the prejudice of being Indian in school. The school doesn’t have the most positive of possible friends and the boy is very badly bullied. You could just imagine the slurs and abuse he deals with, it’s disgusting. Aishwarya Rai’s character is named Tilo after the sesame blessing seed for the record. So Tilo wants to help him attract friends so she puts a cinnamon stick strip in his head piece. I won’t spoil the movie but let’s just say he ends up meeting someone really special who helps him deal with the bullies. So here I am a young witchling learning about nutrition having my ah ha moment and I thought okay besides being a friend maker how do Wiccans and Pagans use cinnamon for magic? So I did the usual I looked up cinnamon in all these different herbal books. I’ve come to learn that cinnamon essential oil is the oil of sexuality. That is works with our first and second chakras. It brings financial success, success period actually. It is for love, power, luck, and healing. It is masculine energy dominant, is ruled by the Sun, and works with fire energy. Makes sense right? It is sweet and spicy so of course it works with fire energy. As a goddess this can be very helpful in balancing my masculine and feminine energies. Spiritually it can help with protection, power, and luck. When people become successful they attract a lot of envy whether intentional or unintentional, so cinnamon will help protect against those envious attacks during your success. To attract riches, witches have combined cinnamon with clove, nutmeg, cardamom, and star anise. When I think of everything I want for my life and what matters it stems back to health, wealth, and love. So of course cinnamon is such a highly attractive spice to me. I am one of those very sexually open and advanced beings. I love hard and I lust hard. Sex is just such a powerful way to do magic. The combination of mutual goals being achieved between you and a partner means something so blissful to the universe. To manifest and visualize what your wants are and seeing them come true during intercourse is something our ancestors have been doing for centuries. Cinnamon was something they either had around the rooms diffusing, tea to drink, or wear with carrier oils to not burn the skin. My personal favorite is cinnamon essential oil with almond oil or coconut oil. Cinnamon is also associated with the Sabbat, Yule. How perfect from the universe that on Yule was actually when I started my year and a day with my original coven family. Keeper of the dark and the light I am and cinnamon keeps me in balance and in check. After all I am a Libra Sun sign too. Do we see the synchronicities here? All this magic is just so sexy sounding.
I’d like to share a delicious Cinnamon Success Chocolate Brew recipe with you.
cauldron “cast iron pot”
Measuring cups and spoons
Homemade whipped cream optional
Crushed graham crackers optional
Cacao nibs optional
Sliced strawberries optional
Let's get brewing!
Grab your mug you intend to use and pour coconut milk to the amount you want, whether it be 1-4 cups. Go crazy and make as much as you want. Cacao powder use to as chocolatey as you prefer. I like it very rich so I use 1/4 cup of powder Sugar to your likening for sweetness. I like it very sweet for magical reasons and taste. So I do 4 tablespoons of coconut sugar. Add 2 cinnamon sticks, you can use cinnamon powder if you prefer and do 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. If you are using Ceylon cinnamon you can use as much cinnamon as you’d like. 1 teaspoon of clove, 1 teaspoon nutmeg, 1 teaspoon chili powder.
Put all ingredients into the cauldron. Let the milk boil and stir with the whisk counterclockwise to properly blend all the ingredients together. Once blended stir clockwise and every time the whisk goes around visualize and say with feeling what you want to succeed in. Give details and be very clear. Speak it and see it into existence. Feel free to use orange, green, and red candles. Light cinnamon incense or diffuse cinnamon essential oil. Wear a cinnamon color outfit if you really want to be extra. Just do what feels right to you to get yourself where you need to be to see your successes coming true. Add the toppings you like once poured into your cup.
