Purpose: To bring on inspiration. For creativity.


-Mason jar Small crystal Dried orange peels (two-thirds) Dried mint (one-third)

-2 drops orange essential oil 1 drop mint essential oil Square piece of black cotton fabric

-Rubber band Orange fabric paint or orange acrylic Orange ribbon
Note: The color orange is the color of creative energies.
The shading (how dark or light the orange is) that you use will denote the level of creative
energies you wish to channel. A dark orange will take you deep into the creative energies
while a light orange is less intense.

-Moon cycle: No moon cycle is selected for this spell because all phases of the moon hold
different levels of creative energies, including the dark moon. If you follow moon phases,
choose the cycle that fits your purpose best.

Gather ingredients. With a clean and dry jar before you, place the mint first and then the
orange peels inside, filling it up about two-thirds of the way. Add two drops of orange
essential oil and one drop mint essential oil. More if you are using a large mason jar.

Stir ingredients together. Take the small crystal in your hand and say something such as:

"Creativity come to me
In whispers and dreams
And visions that gleam."

-Place the crystal inside the jar with the potpourri.
-For the lid, cover the opening of the jar with black fabric so that the side of the fabric
hangs down over the edges about 2 inches.
-With a pencil, mark the center top of the fabric.
-Take the fabric off the jar, lie it flat on a hard surface.
-Using orange paint, acrylic or fabric paint, paint on a spiral.
-While the paint is drying, cover the jar temporarily with a lid so that it doesn't get spilled.

Spiral: The spiral is a symbol of the dance of life. It shows the continuous cycle of ourselves
going inward (within ourselves/our psyche) and then going outward (expressing ourselves).

Black: The black fabric in this spell is used as an absorption color.
Black absorbs all colors, all energies.

By placing the orange spiral on this we are signifying just what those energies are that the
black is absorbing, all creative energies.

Once the paint is dry, place the fabric on the jar once again.
The spiral should now be on the centered top of the jar's mouth.
Holding the fabric in place, wrap the rubber band around the sides to hold it in place.
Next, tie the orange ribbon overtop of the rubber band.
Keep this inspiration jar in your work area, where you do your writing, painting, drawing,
or keep it by your bed to bring on inspiring dreams.

Wonderful! I can't wait to get started! This new year I plan to really get in gear and this is just what I needed!!!! I have one Idea though, for canning jars they sell the lids with a ring that screws onto the jar (I make jams) but this ring could be tightened on instead of a rubber band? Or would it upset the energy in some way? Hmm... Hope you have some idea cuz I dont' want to mess it up.
My friend I think any adjustment would be okay as a lot of spells and magic is often adjusted to the person as needed. Use what you can and just focus your intent and energy and it will work out just fine!
Thank you!

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
