Chili is naturally associated with fire! It is one of the most medicinal herbs we have and is just as important in spiritual work. Chili improves our spiritual energy "circulation" by releasing blockages and removing stagnant energy. These properties make it an excellent way to add heat and energy to rituals and spells- You can shake a dried chili with its seeds intact inside it to heat up your spell or ritual as another way to invoke its energies. It should come as no surprise then, that it is often used offensively in curses and hexes and conversely in counter-magic to protect and defend. Chili can be used alone or added to other crushed herbs in powder form and sprinkled around a space as a protection measure. It is a known ingredient in Hot Foot Powder and can be used in spells and charms to promote fidelity and love. Use to “spice up” a relationship. It can also be used in spells to break curses/hexes. Place chili powder around the house to break negative spells placed on you or those in the home.
Chili powder is sold as a curio.
