Spiritually cleansing your home is a practical way to create positive change in your life. As you clear away unnecessary stray energy from your home, you release unintentional debris from your life. Because your home is a reflection of your inner world, and is directly connected to your spirit… it’s best to keep it fresh and vibrant.
Spiritual cleansing floor powders are much like store bought floor powders that you sprinkle on carpets, and then sweep up. You can make your own natural floor powders with an added magical kick! This is a simple technique that you can uses for your daily cleaning. It’s easy and adds an extra layer of freshness!
You will need to gather together two basic ingredients: Baking Soda, and Crushed Sea Salt. This will be the base of our powder. Both work wonders for clearing away negative and stagnant energy. We will add some botanicals to the base.
The following botanicals are wonderful for clearing away negative energy, and warding off unwanted vibrations:
Basil: Attracts positive energy, and benevolent spiritual influences. Freshens the Aura, and gives it a magnetic quality. Will clear away lower vibrating energies and entities.
Hyssop: One of the Holy plants for spiritual cleansing. It strips away negative energy and replaces it with good vibrations. It will bring environments into equilibrium, especially after highly charged emotional conflicts.
Mint: Infuses the aura with a subtle, happy vibration. Creates an atmosphere of peace, love and understanding. Wonderful to freshen the air, and release mental clutter. Not as aggressive as some botanicals.
Parsley: This is an herb of prosperity and abundance. This will wash away hardship and stagnation with money and business. Very good herb to use if you are feeling uninspired in your space and ready for a change. Works well when combined with other botanicals, or to “freshen” things up between major cleansings.
Rose: Ooh my favorite botanical to use for spiritual cleansing. It is light, gentle, and very very effective. It keeps the energy field strong, and vibrating at a high frequency. This keeps negative at bay because it essentially cannot be in the space.
Rosemary: Works wonders because of its astringent qualities. Great for clearing a space after major work has been done, or a crowed has left. This is another herb that works well to keep things fresh in between major cleansings. It can be combined with Mint, and Sage with good results. Also, this is a nice cleansing agent when preparing a space for spiritual contact.
Rue: Another one of the Holy botanicals. This is, along with Hyssop, one of the most powerful cleansing botanicals. Used to clear away negativity lingering from spiritual work, unwanted visitors and entities, and any other strange vibrations that you cannot shake. Works well to help bring things back into harmony. Sometimes this will clear away things you didn’t expect to lose!!
Sage: One of the most common, and effective spiritual cleansing botanicals. Regarded as sacred among Native Americans, and other shamanic cultures. It is a beautiful herb that enlightens the mind and spirit, and brings things into unison. It is has a way of moving things along without a fight!
Vervain: A wonderful herb that enhances the affects of other herbs. It also clears away psychic attacks and things pertaining to dreams.
Now, Gather together your base ingredients of Crushed Sea Salt, and Baking Soda. Then choose one or more of the botanicals listed above. All will be helpful; one may jump out at you. Trust your intuition.
In a large bowl mix together 1 cup of crushed sea salt, and 1 cup of Baking Soda. Add 1/2 – 1 cup of your chosen botanical to the mixture. If you decide to use more than one botanical do a ½ of each. Stir the mixture together well using a wooden spoon. Be sure to stir the mixture in a clockwise motion. I like to do this 7, 9, or 13 times.
I like to say a prayer over the mixture, or visualize the herbs and botanicals working together and forming a glowing light over the mixture. Use your creative visualization infuse divine light into the powder. Any power, or words of affirmation are suitable.
If you are unable to find powdered botanicals, you can also use essential oils. Either will be suitable. You can even use both! Essential oils will add a lot of fragrance to the mixture!
When you are finished carry the mixture from room to room, and sprinkle a handful around the floor. Especially let it settle in any messy areas where dust and dirt have collected (those are fertile breeding ground for negative energy!).
You can let the mixture sit on the carpet for 10-15 minutes. Then go through each room, sweeping, or vacuuming up the powder. As you clear it away, visualize all the negative and stagnant energy that has collected in your space being dissolved and swept away. Again, you can say a prayer, or affirmation of blessing.
Discard the dirt and powder in the trash, and remove the bag from your home immediately.
If you want to smudge with sage afterward you can. This will enhance the powders benefits. You can also light blessed candles to keep the energy flowing and fresh.
You should feel so fresh and so clean!!
Please, experiment with different herbs and botanicals. You may find one that really stands out to you over the others. Do this as often as you like. Once a week would be ideal.

In my personal practice I use tea for it’s therapeutic, medicinal and energetic properties. Herbs come from the earth and have a unique energy pattern that can be incorporated into our own to create dramatic shifts.
Recently I discussed how to use teas to repair the aura. Tea can also be used for energetic protection. Just like visualizing white light around you, these teas will activate an energetic barrier that strengthen and sustains your aura.
Ginger is a potent root that has a good kick of flavor. It’s used medicinally to help digestion and to jumpstart your immune system. Ginger makes a great base for most protection teas. Start with a good piece of fresh ginger root that you can grind into a teapot with some hot water.
When using ginger it’s good to start with a little and keep adding to it. Some people find it too strong in large doses. Use it sparingly.
Alone, ginger has a very grounding affect. It pulls the aura in tightly so that nothing is hanging out! And adds a good dense layer of energy around the outside boundaries.
For one pot of tea add 2-3 teaspoons of ground ginger root, to 3 cups of spring water.
Ginger and Sage Tea
Sage is another herb that has become a staple in spiritual cleansing and protection. Sage is best known for its ability to expel negative energy. When used as a tea, sage releases negative energy and fortifies the fibers of the aura.
When sage and ginger are combined it grounds and centers, which helps to keep a clear energy field and adds a boundary of very solid protection.
For one pot of tea add 2-3 teaspoons of ground ginger root, one cup of sage leaves, to 3 cups of spring water.
Ginger and Cinnamon Tea
Cinnamon is a fiery bark that carries a punch of energy. This tends to be a little more aggressive than the more grounded energy of ginger, but the two compliment each other well.
When used a tea, cinnamon will add heat to the Aura and create a shield of “Don’t Touch Me” energy! Add ginger to that mix and you have a double layer of protection. One that blazes bright and one that is very solid.
For one pot of tea add 2-3 teaspoons of ground ginger root, 3 cinnamon sticks, to 3 cups of spring water.
For Any Tea
Let the tea steep for 5-10 minutes before drinking. As the tea steeps pray for divine light to bless the water. You can call on any form of Divinity you feel connected to.
A NOTE ON TEA
Experiment with the above combinations. Each herb could be used alone, or all together. These are just suggestions. Make sure to do your research before ingesting any herbal tea to see if you are allergic or if you have any health issues that may be affected by these.
I hope these techniques offer something for your spiritual practice!
Please, let me know if you have any other questions.

DO NOT drink herbal teas if you are pregnant.
ALWAYS consult a doctor, and research the side effects of herbs before taking them internally.

Spiritual cleansing baths are among the most powerful and effective forms of clearing negative energy from your aura. I suggest a spiritual cleansing bath at least once a week to help things stay fresh and vibrant.
Recently, I was asked a very good question, how do you take a spiritual bath if you only have a shower?
I have a few suggestions for those of you who don’t have a shower, or don’t enjoy soaking in the bathtub.
White Light Waterfall
An easy method of spiritual cleansing in the shower is to visualize white light falling from the shower head with the water. Close your eyes as you feel the warm water soothing you, see the light begin to glow vibrant, golden white, as it washes over you it lifts the debris and heavy energy from your aura. This is an effective method that you can practice every morning when you shower!
I am a big believer in crystals! They are wonderful tools for moving, shifting, attracting, and banishing energies. I’ve written before about the psychic vacuum… this is when you use an amethyst crystal to absorb negative energy in a room or from your aura. You can adapt this method for the shower.
Find a nice sized crystal that fits comfortably in your hand. While you are showering begin to rub it across your body, or just an inch over it, as if you are washing with a bar of soap. Visualize the crystal absorbing the negative energy that has accumulated in your aura. My favorite crystals to use are: clear quartz, amethyst, and citrine.
Make sure you place the crystal in a bowl of sea salt after each use!
I love using herbs and other minerals my spiritual cleansing baths. You can adapt most of these by using a sachet. In a small muslin sachet (the kind used for tea) place a handful of herbs that are good for cleansing (or other energetic properties you want to infuse your aura with). Good choices are… sage, cedar, rosemary, lavender, or hyssop (Make sure that you aren’t allergic!). You can also fill the sachet with white rice, sea salt, garlic, or crystals.
To use the sachet rub it over your body, again, like a bar of soap while you shower. Let the warm water infuse the herbs within to release their properties. Most sachets can be used a few times. Re-place as needed. You can use tea bags in much the same way if you have an appropriate herbal mixture.
Here are a few other methods you can use.
If you don’t have time for a cleansing bath, and aren’t interested in a shower, then you can also fill the sink with warm water and a few drops of essential oil (Lavender, Tea Tree, Sage, Citrus) or vinegar. Use the water to wash your face, hands, and feet. Use a fresh washcloth and towel to dry off.
Make a sachet over some of the above ingredients. Place the sachet in a large mixing bowl. Pour boiling water over the sachet, as if you were making a nice cup of tea. With a towel or scarf cover your head and the bowl to allow the steam to wash over your face (just like a traditional steam facial).
Fill a spray bottle with fresh spring water and a fresh drops of essential oil (any of the ones mentioned above). Or make a pungent herbal tea to fill the spray bottle. After you’ve showered, spray your body down with the mixture. This will freshen the aura!
I hope these techniques offer something for your spiritual practice! Please, let me know if you have any other questions.
