There is no single way to make spells. A lot of it depends on your own preferences or tradition. If you want to use words and incantations, then use them; same goes for symbols, herbs, gems, anything. A lot of it has to do with specific correspondences, so I would suggest learning about those.

I know that many here write their own spells which is wonderful. But I also know that many of you are just starting out and may have no experience in how to create a spell for a specific purpose you might have. I found some great websites that I think you'll find helpful in learning how to create spells for your own specific purpose that are likely to work for you.
Some of these are very Wiccan or Pagan in viewpoint so if that doesn't work for you we can talk about how you could change the spell to fit your spiritual viewpoint.
