Pomegranates and Blood Magic Witchcraft
Those that practice the magical arts understand that blood magic is among the most powerful magic there is. Our blood is our “liquid soul.” It contains the history of where we came from, the essence of who we are, and the blueprint for who we will become in our future.
Blood Magic in Incredibly Potent
Moreover, when we include it in a spell or ritual, it greatly potentiates the effectiveness of that spell by orders of magnitude. In fact, because of the sheer potency of its power, it’s generally accepted that blood magic should be used for only the most grave of circumstances.
Only Use Blood Magic for Serious Circumstances
If you need serious protection because of a threat to your life, it might be okay to use a little blood in your protection spell. If you’re simply trying to gird yourself against the negativity from other people, perhaps consider something milder, like yarrow or even lilac.
Use Your Blood, Not Someone Else’s
That said, if you need to use blood in your magical practice, there is the small matter of…where to source it. You should typically use only your blood in blood magic, and just a few drops are needed. However, procuring the blood can be a little painful. Not to mention, working with real blood can be a bit too graphic for some.
Pomegranate Juice is a Painless Replacement in Blood Magic
And this is where pomegranate comes in. The deep, crimson color of the pomegranate seeds is very much similar to blood’s sanguine flush. Additionally, it’s painless to retrieve — unless you cut your thumb on the peel or with the cutting knife. Finally, pomegranate is less disturbing than blood as a magical reagent and perhaps safer to use.

Though Not Blood, Pomegranate Retains the Same Power
It’s important to remember, however, that just because you are using pomegranate as a substitute for blood in your blood spell, it doesn’t make the spell any less potent. Likewise, if you use pomegranate in this regard, it should still be employed for powerful magic only and not trifle matters.
