Make Your Own Cleansing Spray
How many of you cleanse your home regularly? Not with mops and dusting but by utilizing something like a white sage or dragon's blood?
Being sensitive, part of what should be in our maintenance routine is cleansing of the energy in your home. Usually I tell people to use white sage bundled or dragon's blood incense, but what if you are hyper sensitive to scents or you flat out don't like the smell of those? An easy fix is to do the same thing with a white tea light but you can also use sprays. So today I wanted to teach you how to make one.
What You Need - Colored Spray Bottle
The first thing you need is a bottle to keep your spray in. You want to choose one that has a dark colored glass, this helps to keep the energy in the spray that you are going to make fully charged.
Next is your base, water. Now this isn't just any water that you can grab from the tap or the water bottle in your fridge. Go out and gather it from Mother Nature herself, choose some that she has given you as rain, snow, or even from a lake or creek. Gather your water together in a cauldron or other container that you have cleansed and put it outside on the night of a full Moon to charge in the Moonlight. Light three white candles around it and ask the Goddess to bless the water for you.
Here is where you start getting to the fun part. The scent! Here is where you can mix and match your essential oils until you get the scent that you like. I get most of mine from Amazon but you may find some place in your area that has them as well. The first scent you will want is sage. I usually use a solution that's mixed with Sage and lavender, heavy on the lavender. Lavender is amazing for protection as well as cleansing. You can also choose from scents like cedar, sweetgrass, and pine. It's a personal preference when it comes to scent so mix and match. You can also play with the amount of scent. I tend to like my scents stronger so depending on the scent I'm using I will use approximately 20 drops to about 6 ounces. I'll confess I'm not much for measuring when it comes to mixing sprays. I will use my nose and my energy for what feels right.
When you are done you have a beautiful spray that you can use around your home and as part of your regular cleansing. You can spritz it all over your home, don't forget the corners. It's even safe to use over your altar from time to time to help keep it safe and charged correctly.
Have a magickal day!
Much Love and Many Blessings,
