Chicken: Symbolizes Courage and Transformation
Chicken, a symbol of courage, represents transformation in magical practices. Loki’s Fire incorporates diced chicken, signifying the courage to embrace change and transformation during the festive season.

Spices (Cayenne, Smoked Paprika, Cumin): Represent Transformation and Warmth
The combination of cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, and cumin represents transformation and warmth. These spices, with their bold flavors, symbolize the transformative and comforting aspects of Yuletide. As they meld with the chicken, they become a magical blend that warms the heart and sparks inner change.
Fresh Cilantro: Adds Purifying and Refreshing Energies
