Herb and Spice Labels for Magickal Cupboards

How many books do you pull out when you’re looking for the properties of one of the herbs or spices on your spice rack? You may have a favorite, but do you double check the other ones, too? Or do a quick search on line?

I do did.

Nope, not anymore. Those days are over for me.

Now, the meanings (and more!) are right on the labels. Yep. Easy-peasy.

Every time I pick up a spice jar, the correspondences and properties are literally at hand.

Here’s a close up of the thyme and tumeric labels:

It doesn’t matter which way your spices face in the cupboard because the name of the spice is on the top and sides of the label. You’ll always be able to see what’s what.

If there are alternate or magickal names, those are listed under the real name.

Next comes three or four magickal properties of the spice, along with a graphic for those of us who are visual. Sometimes I found a flower for the spices and sometimes I only have them in powdered form.

On the left hand side is a symbol for the element of the spice. Below that is the planetary correspondence. Fire herbs are in red, air herbs in lavender, earth in green, and water in blue. Mars rules lots of spices so most of the spices are fiery in nature.

On the right hand side is another symbol of the element, but using the suits of the tarot. So, if you’re whipping up some special tarot blends, the element is right there for you.

There are also several blank lines to add your own notes about the spice or maybe even a little spell.

On the upper corners are two more blank lines to use for whatever you want. Harvest dates (if you grown your own herbs) and expiration dates are good to note here.

Here’s something fun!

Gather all the spices you’ll be using in a recipe. You’ll have all their meanings right there in front of you and may even come up with a spell that you’d never thought of before. Kitchen Magick is right in front of you!

I didn’t want the labels to look too hokey. I’m not hosting a year-round Halloween party so I made them look “normal.” (But they’re not normal.)

And. I really like the consistent look the labels bring to my spice cupboard. It just looks a lot more organized AND I can find the spices easier because the type is the same font and size every time. It’s really helpful.

The labels are delivered in a pdf file as an instant download. I printed them on plain printer paper and taped them to my spice bottles. I had to trim a few from the bottom to fit the really short bottles, but they still work great.

If you want to use real labels, these fit on Avery 2″ x 4″ shipping labels (#5163).


There are 90 labels for $$8.00, available from my Etsy Store.

Instant download!
