This is one of my most favorite money spells I’ve ever written. It draws from one of my favorite bits of mostly universal folklore – exchanging leaves for money.
It’s a “set it and forget it” style spell meaning so long as the object isn’t damaged, it’ll keep working.
What you’ll need:
- A leaf that fits nice in your purse or wallet.
- Gold leaf or gold paint
Paint the leaf with gold leaf or gold paint. You can paint then entire leaf or just gild the edges of the leaf. Let it dry completely.
Take the leaf into your hand and say,
"You are painted with gold And are a treasure worth having, Now my wallet is never be empty It is always filled with coin, bill, and currency All thanks to you, my leaf gilded in gold."
Keep it in your wallet where you keep your money.
Replace the leaf when it’s broken down or when the gold leaf or paint has completely flaked off.
- Leaves from almond trees, basil plants, mint, cinquefoil, sage, or apple are good choices. But any plant that feels like a “money plant” that has a large-ish leaf will suffice.
- Gold leaf is ideal, but gold paint is cheaper and easier to apply.
