There are many tools used in witchcraft to increase their energy and strength. Most of them are given by Nature like herbs and minerals, while other are artifacts such as Grimoires.

- Main article: Grimoire
A witch records all of her/his spells, rituals and recipes in a Grimoire. It is a spell book filled with information, hexes and spells. Bonnie uses her ancestor's Grimoire to learn her craft. Jonas Martin had an obsession with Grimoires and collected them. This was important in finding the spell to channel the power of the dead witches which will possibly lead to the end of Klaus and to find and save his daughter. After Jonas and Luka died, Bonnie packed up their grimories and presumably kept from in order to kill Klaus.
Cauldronis an object used for witches spells and curses. One of them was used during the sacrifice. Cauldron can be seen in The Lycée and were used by Lenore and Finn Mikaelson (while possessing Vincent Griffith) to perform complex rituals of Sacrificial Magic.
Herbs and Stones

Witches use stones and herbs in their magic as many of them have magical properties. Amber crystal protects a witch from evil, Vervain protects them from vampires and Wolfsbane protects them from Werewolves. The later two have the same effect but are for vampires and werewolves, respectively. They cause the victim to be weak and feverish when ingested similar to poisoning. When in contact with it, it will burn them. Lapis Lazuli, when enchanted, will protected Vampires from sunlight. The effect of Amber is usually 'shocking' a human who comes in threatening contact with the bearer.
Candles and Fire
- Main article: Channeling
Witches use candles in their spells to aid them and channel the flames. This enhances their magic as they draw energy away from the flames. Fire is a strong component in Witchcraft as it is the main offensive tool used. It has also been used as barriers and to destroy objects. They also use candles in channeling. Channeling is when a witch siphons power of an element, celestial event or even another witch. Bonnie also used this power, to create fire in her hand, as well as to light candles and make them out again.
