  • Purification: The herb’s purifying qualities make it ideal for cleansing rituals and to ensure that only positive energies surround you.

Before We Begin: Separating and Repotting Basil Plant Starts

If you’ve purchased a basil plant from the grocery store, you might notice that the pot contains several basil starts cramped together. And if you hadn't noticed, that's okay! Most people don't and when their plant dies shortly after purchase they figure they just don't have a green thumb. Good news, you can have a green thumb AND now you have multiple basil plants!

Here’s how to separate and repot them to give each sprout enough space to grow:

Materials Needed:

  • Basil plant starts
  • Several small pots with drainage holes
  • Potting soil
  • Watering can


  1. Prepare the Pots: Fill each small pot with fresh potting soil, leaving some space at the top.

  2. Remove the Plant from the Pot: Gently remove the basil plant from its original pot. Be careful not to damage the roots.

  3. Separate the Starts: Carefully separate the individual basil plants. Try to keep as many roots intact as possible for each start.

  4. Plant the Starts: Place each basil start into its new pot. Fill in around the roots with potting soil, ensuring the plant is secure and upright.

  5. Water the Plants: Water each newly potted basil plant thoroughly. Ensure the soil is moist but not waterlogged.

  6. Find a Suitable Location: Place the pots in a sunny spot where the basil can receive at least 6 hours of sunlight each day.

  7. Care for Your Basil: Follow the care tips mentioned earlier to ensure your basil plants thrive.

By giving each basil start its own space, you allow them to grow stronger and healthier, ensuring a more abundant harvest for both culinary and magical uses.

Speaking of magical uses, let's get to that part...

  6. Tie the Ribbon: Wrap the green ribbon or string around the pot of the basil plant, tying it securely. This symbolizes binding your intention to the plant.

  7. Recite a Prayer or Affirmation: Speak a prayer or affirmation of prosperity. You could say something like, “Basil, bringer of abundance, I ask for your aid. Prosperity and wealth, come to me and stay.”

  8. Place the Plant in a Special Spot: Position your basil plant in a place where it will receive proper light and care. Make sure it’s a spot you pass by frequently to remind you of your intention.

Caring for Your Potted Basil Plant

To ensure your basil plant continues to thrive and bring prosperity, follow these care tips:

  1. Sunlight: Basil loves sunlight. Place your plant in a spot where it gets at least 6 hours of sunlight each day.
  2. Watering: Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. Water the plant regularly, allowing the soil to dry slightly between waterings.
  3. Pruning: Regularly pinch off the top leaves to encourage bushier growth and prevent the plant from flowering too soon.
  4. Feeding: Use a balanced fertilizer every few weeks to nourish your plant.
  5. Protection: Keep the plant away from cold drafts and pests. A healthy basil plant is more likely to bring positive energy and prosperity.

By combining the practical care of your basil plant with the magical intention of your spell, you can create a powerful talisman for attracting financial abundance. Enjoy the dual benefits of a thriving herb garden and a prosperous life!
