You know that feeling you get when you walk into someone’s home and it just feels inviting and comforting? It’s like entering a world within itself, with its own rules and smells and sense of time. Generally homes that make you feel that way have lots of candles and decor, maybe dim lighting or brimming with natural light, crystals and soft blankets and rugs, the smell of incense burning or maybe something delicious cooking. You can literally feel the energy from homes like that.
When it comes to my own home, that is my ultimate goal: the warm, welcoming home. My style is pretty eclectic compared to a lot of home decor styles and I want my home to tell a story of the places I’ve been and the people I’ve loved rather than just “look cute”. Nothing in my home matches. It’s slightly cluttered in a “three boys live here” kind of way and there is no specific theme.
I’ve always kept crystals and stones all over my house but just recently I learned that placing spell bottles in certain rooms can offer the same benefits. Every room in my house has a spell bottle somewhere, even the bathroom. I swear it’s made a difference in the energy of both my home and my family.
In one of my previous posts, I went a little bit deeper by explaining how to make your own spell bottle and how they can benefit your life. (You can find that post here) In this post, I’d like to share with you the best rooms in your home to place your spell bottles to completely raise your home’s vibration.
Kitchen witchery is one of my most favorite ways to practice magick. Most of the ingredients in my spells end up coming from my pantry and I’ve been known to bake moon cookies and celebrate Lammas and Mabon with spices, fruits, herbs, and breads.
The kitchen is also very special to me because it is the room that I use to nourish my sons and feed my family. I drink tea there when I need to decompress and every meal is prepared there. It is a place of gathering and good company just as much as our family room is.
Think of your kitchen as the heart of your home, branching out into all of the other rooms and directing energy to and from them. Spell bottles in your kitchen can promote so much, such as protection from burns and cuts, blessings for anything cooked there to be passed to those who enjoy it, amplification of the spell work you do there, promoting a sense of well-being that spreads through your home, and more.
The best herbs I’ve found to use for spell bottles in the kitchen are:
• Cayenne Pepper
• Celery Seed
• Black Pepper
• Dill Seed
The best crystals for kitchen spell bottles are:
• Quartz of any kind (Smoky, Clear, Treated, Aura, Rainbow, etc.)
• Jasper of any kind
• Rose Quartz
• Calcite of any kind
• Green Aventurine
The best locations to place a spell bottle in the kitchen are:
• Above or near the oven
• Above or near the sink
• Hidden in a cabinet that you use the most often (such as plates or cups)
• Tucked away in the pantry where you store your herbs and spices
• Above or near a doorway that leads to the rest of the house
The bedroom is an important, intimate room for obvious reasons. This is where we rest, where we find comfort, where we connect with others or go for a moment of silence.
Placing a spell bottle in the bedroom can promote better sleep and dreaming, prevent nightmares and insomnia, release stress and fears, promote meditation and inner peace, enhance connection with others, and more.
The best herbs to use for a bedroom spell bottle are:
• Salt or Sugar
• Star Anise

• Bay Leaf
The best crystals for spell bottles in the bedroom are:

• Lapis Lazuli
• Petrified Wood
• Freshwater Pearl (not a crystal, but still powerful)
• Abalone Shell (same as Freshwater Pearl)
• Rose Quartz
The best locations for a spell bottle in the bedroom are:
• Above, underneath, or beside the bed
• Above or near the doorway
• On the highest shelf in the closet
• In a clothing drawer you use often
• On a windowsill
• Near a clock if you have one
The Family Room
And now we’ve reached the third most effective room to keep a spell bottle: the family room. Whether your family room is also your dining room or you have one of those fancy “sitting rooms”, this applies to whatever room you gather in as a family the most. This is the room where you relax and enjoy company, sip coffee or tea and catch up with friends or family members, build couch forts for your children, watch movies and maybe even play games.
Wherever you do those things with your family, that room can really benefit from a well-placed spell bottle. They can help you establish a deeper connection and clearer communication with family members, stabilize emotions and cool hot tempers, promote abundance and prosperity for the family unit, offer peace and protection for all members residing in the home, improve relationships and spirituality, and more.
The best herbs for spell bottles in the family room are:
• Bay Leaf
• Strawberry Leaf
• Spearmint or Peppermint
• Himalayan Salt
The best crystals for spell bottles in the family room are:
• Clear Quartz
• Agate, of any kind
• Red or Orange Calcite
• Spirit Quartz
• Tiger’s Eye
• Black Tourmaline
• Jasper, of any kind
• Rose Quartz
• Mahogany Obsidian
The best locations to place a spell bottle in the family room:
• Above or near a doorway
• On a windowsill
• Tucked into couch cushions
• Near a clock
• On a shelf on the wall
• Behind the TV
As you can see, a lot of these crystals and herbs will work in any room, it just depends on the energy and intention you put behind them when you create or place your spell bottle.
One other benefit besides the ones you receive from the ingredients and intentions is the anchor that spell bottles provide for our daily lives. Sometimes when I’m having a rough day, simply noticing one of my spell bottles reminds me to be aware of my energy and how it could be affecting others. It’s a token of the atmosphere I desire and a symbol of my own spiritual progress and journey. And if you’re still questioning whether or not spell bottles even do anything, I suggest giving it a try. You literally have nothing to lose.
Happy journeys! 🌙
