From Judika Illes’ Book of 5000 Spells- This is a super useful banishing spell (I might know from experience). Easy ingredients, easy to do, easy.

*Clears throat* There is a clear warning within that book that the spells are NOT TO BE USED. They are for REFERENCE ONLY.

Well, not exactly.  The warning you speak of can be found on page v, right before the acknowledgements. And I quote: " Warning!The encyclopedia of 5000 spells contains an overview of magical spells and practices from a multitude of eras, traditions, and places. {It is intended as an inclusive encyclopedia and reference book. Many of the skills containers in these pages are not to be used and should not be reproduced. Some involve dangerous, potential he harmful, and deadly poisonous botanicals.} The author and the publisher strongly advise against using any spells containing noxious substances or poisonous botanicals, or spells contain blood (The use of which could result in the transmission of blood-borne diseases which may be fatal). {The spells are only reduced here to provide historical context}. Any reader uses the spells entirely at their own risk and the author and publisher accept no liability if the spells do not have the desired effect or if adverse affects are caused. This book is not suitable for children.”I put curly brackets here around what I’m guessing you are talking about. None of botanicals in the spell I posted here could be harmful to anyone, unless they were allergic to the ingredients or did the version that involved the oil (and had bad essential oil discipline).The warning is clear enough in its full context.

Don’t go through life looking over your shoulders for incoming enemy fire. Trap & dispose your enemy like you would a rodent. Here are a few simple instructions to get you started. This work can be done by the uninitiated. You will need a supply of 9 red candles and 27 black birthday candles. Arrange them as shown in the photo. 3 black and one red. The black candles (enemies) will melt before the red candle representing (you or the client). The melted red candle wax will cover the melted black candle wax, sealing and burying your enemies on top of the metal mason jar lid. Inside the jar is a real mouse trap containing the name paper. Personal concerns can be wrapped in the name paper or photo btw, then placed in the trap. Other potent medicines and zoological charges can be placed in the job mirroring your intent. Do this daily for nine days at your nganga or sacred space. Do a divination to determine the path this work should take once the nine days are over.  For the initiated in Palo: Ganguleros, ask nfumbe the nkisi that speaks to the work, whether a firma & fula are required and if it needs to eat. Conduct yourself accordingly. Nsala Malekun and good juju to you!

Natural Remedies First Aid Kit Checklist
1. Valerian tincture

2. Eucalyptus essential oil
A potent antibiotic and antiviral, eucalyptus is excellent for treating colds and sinus infections when used as a steam inhalation.
3. Witch hazel extract
Distilled witch hazel has reported astringent, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, useful for treating insect bites and skin irritations. It’s also an excellent base for diluting essential oils for topical application. Do not take it internally.
4. Herbal insect repellent
Herbal insect repellents work well when applied liberally and frequently.
5. Arnica gel or cream
Arnica flowers have anti-inflammatory and circulation-stimulating properties; the gel or cream may help relieve sore muscles, sprains, strains and bruises. Do not apply arnica to broken skin.
6. Grindelia poison ivy treatment
Grindelia, also known as gumweed, contains resins and tannins that help relieve the symptoms of plant rashes such as poison ivy and poison oak.
7. Lemon essential oil
Uplifting, clarifying lemon essential oil can be used as aromatherapy to help dispel mental fatigue. It is also antiseptic, but should be diluted before being applied to the skin.
8. Echinacea liquid extract
Rich in phytochemicals that boost immunity, versatile liquid echinacea extract can be used internally to treat infections and externally for wounds and burns.
9. Calendula/comfrey salve
With calendula’s antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties and comfrey’s ability to help heal wounds, this salve is perfect for minor cuts and scrapes.
10. Goldenseal capsules or powder

Gentle enough for children, chamomile tea promotes relaxation, relieves indigestion and, applied topically, soothes skin irritations.
16. Elderberry capsules or liquid extract
Elderberries can help prevent cold and flu viruses from invading and infecting cells. If you’re flying or otherwise potentially exposed to viruses, taking elderberry is a good preventive. If you come down with a cold or flu, elderberry can hasten your recovery time.
17. Aloe vera gel
Cooling and healing, aloe vera soothes the inflammation of sunburn and mild kitchen burns.

Do not use eucalyptus if you are pregnant or if you have a history of seizures.
If the herbal insect repellant contains pennyroyal, keep it away from anyone who is pregnant.
Do not use arnica if you are pregnant because it is a uterine stimulant and can cause miscarriage.
Do not use goldenseal if you have heart problems, take blood thinners, have a history of seizures, or are pregnant.
Do not use echinacea if pregnant or breast-feeding, and be aware that the herb can have a laxative effect on some people.
Do not use ginger if you’re pregnant, and use with caution if you’re taking blood thinners.
Do not ingest uncooked or under-ripe elderberries and use all elder plant products with caution due to the risk of cyanide poisoning. Avoid altogether if pregnant or breast-feeding. High doses may cause vomiting.
Before taking any herbal cure, it is important to consult a doctor or licensed herbalist, especially if you’re pregnant, on a medical regimen, or if you have a chronic illness of any kind.
