Tools Of A Witch Part 4

You can find part 3 to this series Here

This series is in no way a full list of a witch’s tools. Each and every witch uses what she feels is necessary for the spell or ritual she or he is preforming at that moment. Some witches don’t use any tools, other use a large array of tools. My lists during these past few months are the most commonly used tools.

Any Medicinal drink can be referred to as a potion. The wise ones knew how to brew herbs to heal, although potion is most often thought of as a poison. Or to be used in love magic.


Scotttish Witches use a staff much like other witches use a wand, sword, or asthme, to cast a circle and direct energy. A staff is a symbol of authority.

A coven tool the HP or HPs walks around the circle allowing the tip of the sword to mark the circle’s line. Can also be used instead of a wand without a coven.

The witches’ tools differ from tradition to tradition. Whether the witch is a solitary or part of a coven is also important when looking at tools.

Pentacle and/ or Pentagram
Used in divination. Usually on the altar as a protection symbol.

Cards used to tell the future. The Roma or Gypsies brought the cards with them to Europe. The earliest known deck of tarot cards from the fourteenth century. There are 78 cards in total. Twenty-two are figure cards. There are 4 suits usually Wands, Pentacles, Swords and Cups. These cords run from Ace to 10. There are also 4 face cards: King, Queen, Knight, and Page.


White Handle Knife
Used in rituals. Used only to engrave other tools with symbols or names.

Vampires from the Netherlands

Dwaallict is a corpse candle from the Netherlands.


Gienganger is a vampiric spirit who’s buried but not at rest. He returns to its family to haunt them and feed from their fearful energy.

Variation Gienganger
Ancient Norse lore believed a Drauge was created when a necromancer died and returned as a revenant. The necromancer had to be very powerful in order to return. The Drauge was extremely powerful; it could kill anyone with a single blow to the head.

The Drauge could steal your breath or Ond if you made eye contact with it.

Never enter a Druage’s burial chamber, which is the best way to keep yourself safe. Runes (letters of an ancient Germanic or Norse alphabet, related to the Roman alphabet.) could also be carved into the gravestone; keeping it in its chamber. It is very rare to hear about a Drauge wandering about.

Christianity brought a new way of destroying the Drauge, as simply as reburying it in a Christian cemetery and or saying a mass for it.
