Persuasion Powder

Intent: To make your words ring true with your listeners, to sway them to your point of view without directly commanding, to make your arguments strong and get your point across in a convincing fashion.


    Wild Cherry Bark
    Marshmallow Root (substitute: Black Sugar)
    Galangal Root
    Orris Root


    Dragon's Blood Resin
    Copal Resin


    Mortar & Pestle
    Mesh Strainer
    Collection Dish

Grind each ingredient separately for several minutes to produce fine powder. Sieve the material through the mesh strainer into the collection dish; this removes the larger ungrindable pieces and gives you cleaner powdered herb. (Pro-Tip: Putting a funnel under the strainer helps reduce lost material.)

For the Wild Cherry Bark and Marshmallow Root, retain the leftover large pieces that don't make it through the strainer. You can use this for loose incense or charm bags later. Remember, witchlings: waste not, want not!  (If you don't have Marshmallow or Galangal Root handy, plain sugar and cinnamon will suffice.)

Combine the component powders in the collection dish, mix well, and bottle immediately.

Sprinkle a little pinch in your shoes before going to important meetings or interviews, or any time you feel like you might need your arguments to have a little extra oomph. This powder can also be used in any spellwork intended to achieve the same result.
