Some of us just can’t “do” smokey incense and sage smudges. I browsed resources & crinkled my brow for inspiration...
. Aerosol mists - brew a minty-lemon potion, let it cool, then strain & decant it into a spray bottle as room mist. Or use lavender essential oil and a bit of alcohol in water to make a spray.
. Crystals - place white quartz or selenite in two diagonally opposed corners of a room and iron-based hematite in the other 2 for a crystal grid.
. Fanning - use a hand-fan, or just your hand, to fan as you walk a widdershins circle; see in your mind as white light is spread around.
. Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram - this ritual clears oppressive energies.
. Oil diffusers - either the oil & water in a dish over a candle type or the reed oil diffuser type that’s air freshener. Use sage, lavender or make a blend of any of the citrus scents - lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit oils.
. Onion - this folk magic method uses your broom to roll a peeled, whole, sweet-onion around the floor of all rooms and finally out the door to be properly disposed of.
. Salt - place pinches of salt in all the corners, on window sills & across doorways. Sweep up & discard; replace monthly. Or spritz the area using a branch or twig bundle dipped into blessed salt water.
. Sound-making - ring a bell or tap a tuning fork, drum or a spoon on a glass, or pot lids as you circle around the area.
. Sunlight - open the blinds and curtains, if indoors, and let purifying UV sunlight pour into the room; open a window.
. Sweeping - sweeping a widdershins circle with your
broom or air-sweep with whisk broom around your space.
. Vinegar - place small bowls with 2-3 TBLS of vinegar in the corners & allow it to evaporate; use vinegar as an aerosol.
