A witch bottle is traditionally used for protection. The idea is that the bottle is a representation of the witch that evil spirits or magical attackers will focus on instead of the witch herself. So a witch bottle will have personal effects of the witch inside it, for example toe nails, urine, menstrual blood or hair clippings. It will also likely have protective oils and herbs inside it, I like to use sage or basil and I always use rose oil to represent me as a person. Some witches will add other ingredients like graveyard dirt or crystals. Anything of significance to the witch will give the bottle additional potency. Some witch bottles are made as purely defensive magic, some work more like a counter curse and
I know at least one witch who puts a powerful hex on her bottles as an attack against anyone who threatens magic against her.
I use mine for a slightly different purpose. As the bottle represents me, I use it a bit like a poppet. So if I am tired and have to go to work, I place my bottle in comfy blankets to make me feel rested. Or if I am hot I will dunk it in a bowl of cold water to cool down. Its an unconventional use but a very useful one.
Picture is of my own current witch bottle. I will be doing a blog on my serenity bottle shortly.
