Your Guide to Self-Love Spells and Rituals

These spells and rituals might not help you catch the person you love but they will help you with your confidence and they will heal your mind and soul!

Keep in mind that there are many more spells for gaining confidence and loving yourself! 

These are just the 7 that we have picked out for you!

1. Burn a Candle for Self-Love

What you’ll need

  • a candle – choose one with a color that represents you the most
  • oil – that smells like your favorite plant, or just use olive oil
  • herbs – choose the ones that align with your desires
  • a candle holder or a fire-proof tray

Now that we have all the essentials, let’s get to casting!

Go somewhere peaceful and take deep breaths. Start thinking about the candle and what it represents to you, why did you choose those colors?

Carve your name and date of birth into the candle. Anoint your candle with the oil you picked and say these words: ‘I name you, (your name). I am you and you are me. Now, we are joined.’

You may repeat this however many times you’d like.

Set the candle aside for now. Crush the herbs you picked on a flat surface or in a bowl. Get your candle and roll it in the herbs

Now get to chanting: ‘Blessed herb, cover me and grant me (self-love/confidence/sound body and mind.)‘ and repeat it as much as you’d like.

Say whichever attribute you want, it may not be listed here.

Next up, put the candle in your tray and light it up. Look at the flame and let your mind wander. Think about how it will feel when you are filled with this energy. Let your emotions loose. 

If it’s not possible to burn it all on the same day, light it daily and let the candle burn for at least an hour.

2. Take a Bath

Make sure you have plenty of time for this and don’t let anything run past you. Enjoy this ritual to its fullest!

What you’ll need:

  • everything you normally use – this list is different for everyone, your favorite shampoo, favorite body scrub, washcloth, warm towels, fancy bathrobe, all of it!
  • a bath bomb – if bathing
  • herbs – unlike the previous spell, it’s best to use lavender or rose petals
  • rose quartz
  • three pinches of salt
  • candles – white, blue or pink are best
  • a lighter – for the candles
  • your favorite music

Get yourself comfortable in your bath or shower. Put up all your gadgets that we’ve listed. Set the candles somewhere safe and light them and put on your favorite music.

Take the salt and the washcloth. Spread the washcloth on a flat surface and sprinkle the salt in the center and say ‘Salt, lend me your cleansing power.’

Next, crush your herbs and sprinkle them in the center of the washcloth as well. Say the name of the herb and what properties you need from it.

Get the corners of the cloth and make a ball with your salt and herbs inside. Step into your bath or shower and set the herb bundle aside. Wash yourself as you normally would.

After you do your normal ritual, take the bundle, wet it and scrub yourself with it. As you do this imagine all negativity leaving your body. Now you are open to new things!

Finish your bathing as you normally would and blow out all the candles!

3. Make an Altar for Yourself

What you’ll need:

  • a mirror – preferably small or medium
  • any crystal you’re drawn to can be rose quartz, clear quartz, amethyst, etc.
  • some paper
  • art supplies

Put your mirror on the floor or table, having a flat surface is important. 

Place the crystals however you want around the mirror. Use your intuition.

Take your paper and art supplies and start drawing. Create all of the attributes you love about yourself. It doesn’t matter if you’re a skilled painter or not. 

What’s important is that this picture resonates with you!

When you’re done drawing, painting and decorating, put the piece of artwork at the center of your altar.

Now every time you walk past it, positive things will come to mind!

4. Make a Self-Love Jar

Get into the kitchen and start mixing!

What you’ll need:

  • a jar with a lid
  • brown sugar
  • herbs- rose petals, lavender, rosemary, cinnamon
  • Himalayan salt
  • crystal- rose quartz
  • a pink candle
  • bay leaves

Gather all of your supplies on the table or counter and set the jar in the middle. Basically, just start putting everything in it.

As you put each item in, call it by its name and say what you want to gain from it. When you get to the bay leaves, it’s better to use a marker to write your wishes and affirmations.

Put everything inside the jar except the candle. When you’ve done that, put the lid on and seal the spell by lighting your candle and letting the wax get on there.

Set the jar somewhere safe and let the energies in!

5. Confidence Ritual

What you’ll need:

  • 7 candles– all different colors
  • a container

You need a lot of time for this ritual. Seven days to be exact. That’s why you’ll need seven candles!

All 7 candles need to be different colors. Pick the colors so that they are in tune with the parts of your personality that you love.

Light a candle every night. Think about why specifically that color is special or important to you. What does it represent?

Enjoy the warmth of the candle and say your affirmations.

When the candle burns out, put it into the empty container and at the end of the week take the container with the 7 candles and charge them in the moonlight.

From then on they will serve as a reminder of how amazing you are!

6. Recharge Spell

We all need time for a recharge at times. Let’s see how this spell can help!

What you’ll need:

  • lukewarm water
  • essential oil

Pour your water into a bowl and add some drops of essential oil of your choice.

Put one of your hands up in the air, palm facing upward, the other hand floats above the water, palm downward.

Envision positive energies coming in through your hand that’s in the air, you may even say ‘I ask for the energy to be safe and healthy‘ or you can choose the attributes that you desire.

Now imagine that energy spilling into the bowl through your other hand. That water is charged now and you can wash your hands in that bowl.

You can repeat this spell however many times you’d like!

7. Make a Self-Love Potion

It wouldn’t be a witchy guide to self-love if we didn’t have at least one concoction!

What you’ll need:

  • water
  • cinnamon sticks
  • a jar
  • a marker
  • a kettle or someplace to boil the water

Take the marker and the jar and write positive affirmations at the bottom of the jar. Fill the jar with water and place it outside for a couple of hours. The jar will absorb the energy of the earth.

When a couple hours pass, get the jar and pour the water into a kettle or pot on the stove. Boil the water and hold the cinnamon sticks in your hand.

Take this moment to remember what true love looks like to you. Let that love course through your body. Now place the sticks in the water (one stick for every cup of water.)

Let the sticks boil in the water and infuse it with its scent and taste.

Once 10 minutes pass, you’re allowed to enjoy your tasty potion!

Happy Casting!

Take time to get to know yourself. The journey of self-love isn’t an easy one but with this handy guide, you’ll be able to explore different ways to practice self-care and your craft!
