A long time ago I was reaching across my desk for something and withdrew my hand quickly because I thought I had burned it on a candle. It was only then that I realised I had not even got a candle let alone a lit one on my desk. I felt around again with my hand and the heat source turned out to be a pentagram drawn on normal paper in Dragon’s Blood Ink that I had been testing out earlier.
Dragon’s Blood Ink is made from the bright red resin that is obtained from the Dracaena or Daemonorops species of plants. The resin itself is used in African-American folk magic for wealth or love whilst the ink is used to inscribe magical talismans and sigils. When you write with Dragon’s Blood Ink, put your hand just above the writing afterwards and you will notice the heat that it gives off. Next time you write a cheque or sign a piece of work off with your signature think what power you are putting into those few drops of ink on paper. You are actually giving that piece of work or monetary transfer your name, your seal if you like.
Cerdwyn’s Cauldron Dragon’s Blood Ink comes complete with its own unique personal power spell scroll describing how you can create your own sigil to sign off your spells and charms and add that extra magical oomph.

Hold a silver spoon in the flame of a black candle until it turns black.Carefully scrape this black soot into a small amount of water. Repeat this a number of times until the water is black. For best results add a few drops of Raven’s Feather Ink. Think about the most negative thing in your life, something you wish to change or loose and choose a picture or word that best sums that up. Write that picture or word on piece of Spell Paper and carefully burn it in the flame of the back candle. It is always best to never re-use the same spell and componants, unless it is a repetition spell. This way your magic becomes special, has more meaning and is more effective.
