Updated: 1/9/2016

Hold it! Before you toss those egg shells, let’s do something Magickal with them.

Magickal Tip Egg Shell Powders by The Magick Kitchen 400x426

Magickal Tip: Create Egg Shell Powders by washing and drying your egg shells to make useful Magickal powders for a variety of purposes.

Grind your clean, dry eggs shells into a powder and use this powder to cast a circle, bless and feeding your garden. You can also grind dry herbs into your eggs shell to create Magickal powders for specific Magickal intentions and goals.

Try this, use your egg shell powder to make a kind of chalk. This chalk can be used to write Magickal symbols on just about anything. Draw protective symbols in areas of need to protect objects and your home. This powder can also be used to create a protective barrier around your home.

I saw a need to update this post because there appears to be some confusion on several blogs on Cascarilla Powder. I even see Pagan shops selling this powder, and I fear the information they have obtained on this substance is incorrect.

Croton eluteria, also known as Cascarilla, is a plant species of the genus Croton, native to the Caribbean and is used in other tropical regions of the Americas. It is a small tree or tall shrub, rarely growing to 20 feet in height.

The uses for Cascarilla, including the powder, varies from treating and aiding digestive issues, and to create Magickal barriers. If you are a Vegan Kitchen Witch, this is an excellent alternative to using egg shells. This powder is most often associated with Santeria practices. 

Since there is a lot of perceived confusion about Cascarilla Powder vs. powdered eggshells, tell me how you came to know and use Cascarilla. Were you taught by an experienced teacher/practitioner? Did you read it in a book? I am eager to understand the association. 

I invite your feedback.

Tell me what you think. Do you have any questions?

I love to know what my readers are up to and how you put my thoughts and experience to use in your world. Also, if you have any suggestions on subjects for future posts let me know your thoughts. I’m listening.

Bright Blessing!

I just want good food and to live a Magickal life! Is that so much to ask?After many years of study, struggle, and disappointment; I realize that I could forge my own path using the knowledge I gained, and the simplest of techniques. Through persistence I found the honest answer... I can have both!
I love food and everything that goes with it. I have spent more than 35 years in the kitchen, enjoying every minute of it. Okay… well, enjoying nearly every minute of it.
In addition, I have disbursed nearly as many years studying Wicca, Witchcraft, and Paganism. Combining these two interests has created a Magickal path where food, spirituality play brilliantly together.
My love of whole healthy foods, and unique recipes has also lead me to help run a local teen cooking program, where I teach kids valuable life skills in the kitchen. In addition, I teach different cooking classes for adults on subjects of making the time spent in the kitchen more enjoyable and efficient, recipe creation, and how to make cooking a part of your Magickal and spiritual practice.
From this, The Magick Kitchen was born. My journey with you is about developing a spiritual experience with food, far beyond the dull habit of consumption. We have a marvelous opportunity here to take a most basic-mundane task and make it Magickal!
Please enjoy the recipes, article, and content here on The Magick Kitchen. If you have questions or suggestions, I’m listening.
I am so glad you joined me! The personal act of sharing knowledge, experience, and personal perspective with you is an honor. Thank you!

  1. I have just read your tips for using eggshells for a variety of purposes, but where are the instructions on how to do this? For instance, you mentioned making a kind of chalk, how do I do? Do you have any more information or solid techniques for someone just beginning to delve into kitchen witchery?

    • Hi Rae,
      Thank you for your comments! I am in the process of another blog post that will go more into using egg shells. There will also be more information in my book coming out this summer. This book will be a great resource for you as you start your Kitchen Witch Journey. BB

  2. Is there any risk of salmonella? I know in the USA we have to keep our eggs in the fridge (but when I was in Finland, because of the different ways eggs are handled, the eggs were just kept on a shelf and not in the fridge).

  3. Iveheard putting your shells in the oven can dry them quickly and kill salmonella, if you’re worried about that

  4. The egg shells are execellent for gardens as well as cage birds, for a source of calcium based protein. That’s what i used for my cage birds…
