Cinnamon Clay

This is a non-edible recipe for making a yummy-scented dough with which you can create charms, ornaments, and small altar pieces.

Preparation Time:


1 cup Applesauce
1/3 cup White Glue
Any combination of ground Cloves, ground Nutmeg, ground allspice, and/or ground ginger to equal 1 cup
1/2 cup of ground cinnamon
More Cinnamon


In a medium bowl, stir together cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, allspice and ginger. Mix in the applesauce and glue. Work the mixture with hands for 2-3 minutes to form a firm ball. If it’s too wet, add more cinnamon, if it’s too dry, add more applesauce.

Lightly dust a surface with cinnamon. Roll the dough ¼ inch thick if cutting shapes. Or mold with hands. If you want to make a larger piece, use aluminum foil to make the general shape then put the clay over it. Large, solid pieces made with this clay tend to crack and crumble.

Dry in the oven at 200 degrees for several hours or air dry in a sunny spot for a week.

Additional Comments:

Items created with this dough carry the energy of the Sun and the element of Fire. They are useful for attracting love and prosperity and for protection. You may choose to use things made from cinnamon clay in closets, drawers and chests to keep items safe (and also smelling nice) and to charge those items with the herbs qualities.

For money. More specifically, to keep money flowing into the household (prosperity) rather than quick money. Because of the Fire element, this works best if you're doing something active, preferably creative, to make the money. Put a symbol of whatever you're doing in the bowl at and take it out and carry it with you during the day. Place your change in the bowl at the end of the day (put your symbol on top) to charge it with active energy and when the bowl is full, donate the money to get it back into circulation as quick as possible and keep it actively moving. The bowl should be quite small and shouldn't take long to fill up, you want the money moving.

This clay dough makes wonderful Yule ornaments and carries energy quite appropriate to Yule.
