I would like to take some time to explain how I make these amulet bags, and what I use when I make them. Since it’s not really obvious from the images and I thought you would like to know 🙂

The materials I use for the bags themselves are usually 100 % natural, mostly leather or wool. I sew the bags by hand from a rectangular piece that’s about 6 x 5 cm, and a round piece for the bottom. The strings I use are also from natural materials, like for example waxed cotton, linen thread, or a leather strap.

What’s inside an amulet bag?

As for to what’s inside, that when it becomes interesting, and a bit complicated. It all starts with the purpose of the amulet. Let’s say it’s for self-confidence, daring to be yourself (for example at work or school).

Low self-esteem, low self-confidence, or whatever you choose to define it as has a great impact on your life. It stops you in your tracks in so many ways. So I’ve made a few amulets for that through the years.


I start with the herbs, either dried or as essential oils. For self-confidence, I’d add the following:

  • Cloves
  • Ginger
  • Cinquefoil
  • Tobacco
  • Yarrow
  • Nutmeg
  • Carnation
  • and Nettle for an extra boost

Notice that there are 8 herbs. That’s because I like to involve numerology when I can 🙂 The herbs usually bring some scent to the amulet as well, giving it an extra level of power to remind you to stand strong.


Then I’d have a look at crystals, and check in with my intuition if it’s appropriate for that bag. For a self-confidence bag, I’d use one of these:

  • Citrine
  • Garnet
  • Carnelian
  • Tiger Eye
  • or a piece of Amber


If my intuition tells me so, I’d also add a rune. Either a bindrune, a cypher rune or just a normal rune from the Elder Futhark. I might choose to carve it in a piece of wood and put it inside the bag, or I might choose to sew the pattern on the outside. For self-confidence, I would most likely choose this bind rune:

It’s a combination of the rune Áss and the rune Sol.


When possible I try to match the colour of the bag to the purpose, for the custom made ones. For self-confidence, the most suitable colour would be red. Maybe you’ve noticed the effect of red on your confidence in other situations?

The items vary from bag to bag because I rely heavily on my intuition and the conversation I’ve had with you before creating it.

If you want a custom amulet bag for any purpose, you can order one here and we’ll talk soon.
