If your witchlings are anything like mine, the fear of monsters and nightmares is oh-so-real. The question is: What do you do when this fear leads to Mama not getting any rest either (Because then she BECOMES the monster in queestion)? I feel you, Witchy Mama. It’s a tough row to hoe, but lucky for you I’m here this week to share with you my tried and true Anti-Nightmare Potion Recipe!

Just remember that, like any and all of the recipes I post in my blog, don’t fret if you don’t have each, exact ingredient! You can just omit if you’re missing something you don’t want or can’t use. Or, of course, you can substitute with whatever ingredients you might have on hand that you feel intuitive drawn to use. Here is what I like to use for this Anti-Nightmare Potion, though:

Potion Ingredients:

  • 1 part Full Moon water

  • 1 part Florida Water

  • 12 drops Palo Santo essential oil

  • 5 drops Frankincense essential oil

  • 5 drops of Lavender essential oil

  • (opt.) EXTRA fine cosmetic/food grade glitter

**NOTES FOR BREWING: You’ll see that in my recipes I frequently refer to “parts” rather than specific quantities. Potion-making and oil blending is very much an imprecise art form. My “parts” were based on the size bottle I brewed my potion in. I believe it was approximately 8 oz per “part”.

For best results, I suggest brewing this Anti-Nightmare Potion on a “freshly” waning moon. (That is, 1 – 3 nights following the full moon.) Simply combine all ingredients together and mix well!

If you choose to use the glitter only the finest glitter should be used especially if you are hoping to use your Anti-Nightmare Potion as a spray. Glitter that is too big will not fit through the sprayer. I learned that one the hard way first-hand! If you still want to use glitter but can’t get the fine type that will work in a spray bottle, you can still use your Anti-Nightmare like an anointing “oil”.


To use as a spray, spray 5 times either on your witchling or over their pillow before bed. If you are using it as an anointing oil we had a very specific procedure for anointing. Witchling #3 at one point started complaining that their imaginary friend was “wiping” the spell off (despite our assertion that this was not possible), so we also began to “seal” the sleeping spell to be sure that couldn’t happen. -

On your witchling’s third eye, trace the rune Uruz (ᚢ) to help bring on peaceful sleep followed by Algiz (ᛉ) for protection. Then, repeat this process at the nape of the neck. (Which is the “back” side of the third eye chakra.) Then, trace a square (four Issa runes, ᛁ) around those followed by Thor’s hammer (which resembles an upside-down Tyr rune; ᛏ) to “seal” the spell!

Of course, just like in every fairytale — all true magick should be sealed with a kiss, so be sure to kiss both spots after the spell for extra oomph!

What types of magick have you done for your little witchlings to help prevent them from getting nightmares or warding off the monsters under the bed? Tell me about it in the comments below!
