This is a potion for, you guessed it, banishing.
3 Cloves Garlic Chopped Fine (Do not press, use fresh if possible)
1 1/2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3 Dashes Oregano
1 Dash Marjoram
2 Dashes Thyme
1/2 Large Onion Diced (not dried)
1/4 Cup Wine
Salt and Pepper to taste
Other suggested ingredients:Edit
- Begin by sauteing the onion (and optional veggies) in half of the olive oil in a large frying pan until the onion begins to soften. If necessary, stir in a deosil motion.
- Add oregano, marjoram, sage, thyme, salt, pepper, and garlic to the pan and let sit for 1 minute.
- Add the wine until it stops sizzling (appx. 1/4 cup, YMMV) and then stir for 3 minutes clockwise while the wine is absorbed.
- The onions go perfectly with many meals, however I find they work best as a pasta sauce. Once the onions are fully sauteed to a golden brown, your veggies should be delicious.
Garlic has been used for centuries for its healing properties. Additionally, it is a potent herb used in exorcism. Likewise basil, sage, and onion are noted for their protective properties as well as their use in banishing. Marjoram, oregano, and thyme are noted as being herbs associated with a loving home. As such, they imbue the potion with both love and protection.
It is vital to cook this potion in the presence of whomsoever you wish to exorcise, if that is your goal. The reason for this is because the smells of cooking will permeate them, their clothing, and their memories. It is for the same reason that if you wish to exorcise a home using this potion you must cook it in the kitchen of that home. Often olfactory magic is overlooked, but it is essential to the modern kitchen witch.
As always, your mileage may vary. This potion may need some tweaking as I always cook based on scent and flavor. The ingredients are important, but just as important are the following two rules:
- Fresh is always better. If you have a garden with oregano in it, use it. Fresh picked herbs are always better than dried. (Exception being if they are picked during a ritual during a specific time or a specific purpose and dried for exclusively that purpose)
- Kitchen Witchcraft is intensely personal. Are you allergic to onions? Don't use them. Find a replacement for certain ingredients if you don't like them. There is a reason these ingredients all overlap: if you're missing one, it's not the end of the world. Don't be afraid that you're going to get the recipe wrong because you don't know what a dash or pinch are. They're arbitrary and I generally just add everything to taste.
