This has been a most helpful and fun thread, I really like the pic in the beginning of the woman who is fascinated by housework, me?... (NOT!) but I get a kick out of ALL the pic's in this thread.
I think it is really important also...this magical housecleaning. The idea of taking mundane, daily work to a spiritual level is really uplifting and refreshing. Though I have almost always swabbed the deck with a eucalyptus and lavender blend I had rarely make it a magical act.
This thread is so inspiring it almost makes me want to do MORE housework than I normally do, and now in thinking back on my housecleaning life, I had a revelation...there was a time when my favorite way to clean the house was Skyckad!!
(see, this way you don't get your clothes all smelly and dirty
)..anyway, get real down and grungy wall to wall cleaning, with the super grime on your knees, sweaty Betty with your hair all in a bun (yuck). Then off to the shower with some sort of body scrub!! Ahhh all ready for Ritual now !
Yeah! Skyclad cleaning Witches with their crowns
, I was well on my way to the Craft and didn't even know it yet .
Here is a link to my favorite bulk herb company...I have posted it before, but it may be more helpful here, they have just about every herb you can think of, as well as really quality essential oils, spices and other bulk cooking mixes. I get my frankincense tears through these guys because I make quite a lot of my own blends, (they also have Myrrh, Dragons blood resin, Benzion and some clays)
