You Will Need:
Crafting Your Curse:
At your Santa Muerte altar, use your black ink pen to write the name of each member of your target family on a piece of paper - one paper for each person in the family that you want to target. In addition to the name of each person, you can also add other identifying details to the paper, such as their date of birth, home address, phone number, or even email address. This will help target your intent as much as possible, so there is no question about who you want to target within the family.
Place each piece of paper into the empty jar, then light your black offering candle, and position the jar so it may rest in the candle's light. Recite the Family Fall Apart Santa Muerte magick prayer, found below, three times over the jar, then leave the jar in the light of the black offering candle for about 30 minutes. This will help solidify the connection between the pieces of paper and the people you want to target, and will further show your intent of wanting the negativity from this curse to shine on the people that you have chosen.
At the end of about 30 minutes, place approximately equal amounts of your dry herbal ingredients into the jar, sprinkling each herb over the pieces of paper. Next, sprinkle in your negativity activators - remember that less is more, and you only need a few pinches or drops of each negativity activator in order to make this curse effective. While you add each ingredient into the jar, literally raining down negativity over the papers that represent your targets, envision the negativity from your curse being focused on the chosen members of your target family. See them squabbling with each other, fighting with each other, and stabbing each other in the back. As you prepare this jar, recite the below Family Torn Apart Santa Muerte magick prayer.
When all ingredients are in the jar, leave the jar in the light of the black candle's flame. Again recite the below magick prayer three times over the jar, then let the black candle burn all the way to completion. When it has burned completely, the working is complete, the curse has been sent, and you can dispose of the pieces.

"Family Fall Apart" Santa Muerte Magick Prayer
Santa Muerte, tear apart,
the family, in this jar.
Shoulders cold, emotions hot,
make them argue, lots and lots.
Holy Death, at this hour,
take this love, turn it sour.
Lies be told, words be twisted,
make their trust, non-existent.
