Tag Archive: Supplies



In Wiccan practice quite a large variety of bits 'n pieces are needed. When setting out on the Wiccan path, the list may seem quite daunting - and expensive. But the good news is that if your budget cannot stretch that far, much of what is needed can either be self-made or grown. Compiling a list of the bare necessities is probably a very good start. To make it easier, I divided the list into two parts. The first part is non-consumables and the second part is consumables:

The Basic List

Non-consumables

* Altar
* Candleholders
* Athame
* Wand
* Cup
* Incense holder
* Bowl
* Pentagram
* Altar Cloth
* Clear quartz crystal

Consumables

* White candles
* Lavender Incense
* Dried Lavender
* Sea Salt

As you progress along your path, you may feel the need to add to this list. The list can become very long and costly if you don't keep an eye on yourself. It is probably a good idea to take a sanity check before adding to the list, by asking yourself "What do I need it for?" and if the answer is yes, "How often will I use it?". To help you, I compiled a list of intermediate supplies. As is the case with the basic list, you can make a lot of it yourself if need be:

The Intermediate List

Non-consumables

* Statues
* Staff
* Mortar and Pestle
* More crystals
* Plate

Sources of Wiccan Supplies

You will effectively have three sources to choose from when seeking Wiccan supplies. These are You, Occult supply stores and the Internet.

You

There is a lot to be said in support of creating and making your own "non-consumables". Over and above the price, there is the very relevant issue of personal power. The elements of personal power basically revolve around Charging and Imprint:

Charging - When you decide to make your own wand, for example, you plant the seed of intent. Next, you may research the different types of wood that can be used. When you decide which wood you want to use, you will do so with a specific purpose in mind. Let's say you decided on Oak. At the store, you will select a length of Oak wood. You are likely to choose the piece of Oak wood that resonates best with you - quite unknowingly of course. When you get back home, you will start making the wand. While you are carving away, you will probably daydream on what it will look like in your hand during ritual In the process, you are charging the wand with its intended purpose.

Imprint - By handling the raw wood and by transforming it into a magickal tool, you leave your personal imprint on the wood and the wood its personal imprint on you

That is why a self-made tool could well turn out to be far more effective and much more powerful than one purchased at a store or on the internet.

If you are just starting to learn about Wicca and you would like to start practicing it, you are going to want to set yourself up with some quality wiccan tools and supplies. While it may be true that in Wicca, there are no set rules for what you can and cannot use, it would be nice to look over the popular options that many have found to work well for them. This way, you will at least have some sort of starting place. You can change and adapt things as you feel the need to. Again, remember, in order to get started on your path in Wicca, you do not have to get everything you learn about as far as wiccan tools goes. Start small and as your desire and your experience grows, so will your collection of tools and supplies.

One thing that many people will start with is an alter. This is something that you can create on your own if you would like or you could buy a special alter from a trusted dealer. Another thing that is essential for a lot of Wiccans is that of the alter bell. The wiccan athame, or knife, is also an essential part as it will be used for many rituals and spell work.

For the preparation of the spells or potions, many practitioners of Wicca will make use of a cauldron and they will also have their Chalice at the alter. And on just about every wiccan alter out there, you will find three candles on the alter. There will be two white candles and one black candle. The black candle represents the Goddess and the whites represent the God and lighting.

Incense is another thing that is commonly used as part of the Wiccan tools and supplies. You'll need a censer for that in order to burn the incense. The censer is like a cauldron and it is usually suspended in the air with tripods. The censer itself will represent the air element.

Now that you have a little more of a clear understanding as to what the basic wiccan tools and supplies are, you can get started shopping. When you find something that simply seems to call out to you, you might want to take more of an interest in it and buy it. Remember, with this path comes an incredible amount of learning and changing. What you feel and believe today will probably not what you feel and believe tomorrow. You are growing spiritually and that is why you will see change in yourself. With that change, just might be a new list of tools and supplies to get.
