Magickal Tip Egg Shells

Hold it! Before you toss those eggshells, 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 eggshells 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 eggshell 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, vary 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 eggshells. 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!

  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?

    1. 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).

      1. yes in the US we keep our eggs in the fridge. To be honest I am not sure why we do this. Some parts of the US are not very hot, but in the South, I can see this being a reason. 😉

  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…

  5. Hey I need a spell for the eggshell’s… And I am new to this… I didn’t wash them out so will they have a different reaction….

    1. No there will be no different “reaction”. I am not sure what kind of spell you are looking for, but you can grind egg shells into a powder as stated in this post to make a Magickal chalk. This can be used for drawing sigils in spells.

  6. So glad to hear from you. Do you send email individual?
    Have some relationship questions from wish I would like to hear your wisdom.

  7. I save and grind eggshells for health reasons. Adding a quarter to half teaspoon to foods and/or beverages. You will notice the gritty texture more so in liquids than foods.
