It's nearly exam season, which means right now, you're probably neck deep in revision for those pesky finals. If only there were a spell that made sure you're bound to pass...

Oh wait, there is!

Of course, this spell will only work if you've actually studied for the exam. It's a kind of spell I like to call an enhancement enchantment, meaning that if you've already done the hard work, this spell will push you closer to success. If you haven't, then it won't give you that much of an extra boost.

Luck, a clear mind, a persevering spirit; these are all elements that we need during a tough exam. Because, let's face it; sometimes, studying super hard won't win the whole battle. Especially if you're prone to freezing up in tests due to the paranoia that you've forgotten something or if you don't know where to start because your head is cluttered with SO many different ideas.

So how can you ease this exam anxiety and make sure  you get a good grade? With this handy spell, of course!

What You'll Need

What You'll Need

- A yellow candle

- Matches or a lighter

- A pen

- A piece of paper

- A textbook that includes your exam topic

- Chamomile 

- Peppermint

- Rosemary

The leaves can either be fresh, from a teabag, or in dried herb form.

Budget: $5-8 for the candle, lighter, and herbs. Since you already have the textbook and stationary for class, it all depends on how much your herbs cost in your local supermarket (or if you grow them yourself). If you already have quite a healthy collection of witchy equipment, this spell may cost nothing at all!

Step One

Take the textbook and open it up to a chapter you've had the most difficulty with. Say you're taking history and find it tricky to remember a certain timeline; the page that holds the timeline will essentially be the alter for this spell.

Step Two

Place the yellow candle in a safe place near to the textbook. Close enough so it can charge the spell, but far enough away from flammable objects because, well, you don't want to set anything on fire. Light the candle. Yellow candles are synonymous with success, so lighting this colour will help secure yourself a successful spell never mind a successful exam result.

Take the paper and pen, and write the following charm: "I will pass, I will remember what I need to, I will show how hard I've worked, I will pass with flying colors."

Place the charm on the book's page. Be sure to take some time and focus on the charm, the glowing flame, and the page itself.

Step Five

Place a pinch of chamomile onto the center of the page next to the charm, and say the first part of the charm: "I will pass." Not only is chamomile perfect for soothing a worried spirit, but it's also a great magic ingredient for luck. Like I said earlier, you can't pass an exam on luck alone, but you can never go wrong with a helpful dash of it.

Do the same with the rosemary, saying the second part of the charm: “I will remember what I need to.” Rosemary is a very important part of this spell as it symbolizes clarity — something we all need while trying to pass a test. You want to have a clear and settled mind when taking your exams.

Step Seven

Take the peppermint and read the penultimate part of the charm: “I will show how hard I've worked.” Similar to rosemary, peppermint is a great ingredient for keeping your mind clear, since it symbolizes focus. After all, it's difficult to avoid distractions in an exam hall; there's always someone tapping their pen on their desk or tutting at the hard questions. Staying on topic and not going off on tangents in exam essays is also something everyone needs focus for, so having an herb that charges focus within you is crucial.

Step Eight

Step Eight

Focus on the pile of herbs and read the final part of the charm: “I will pass with flying colours."

Step Nine

Step Nine

Close the book with everything enveloped inside, then blow out the candle. Take a break and continue studying when the time comes for it. On a non-magic note, be sure to remember to take regular breaks, drink plenty of water, eat snacks that are great for your brain and go easy on yourself. You can work hard and take care of yourself at the same time, so try and strike a good balance.
