Floor washing is a folk magickal way of cleansing your home or living space of negative energy. Cleansing can be done at any time, but especially after a challenging period, fight, or when dealing with a string of bad luck. Floor washes are exactly what they sound like. It is a magickal mixture that you use to wash the floors. It takes a lot of work, but it will totally shift energy.
This spell is best performed on a new moon. Make sure you have a solid intention of cleansing and clearing out stuck or negative energy through all of the steps of this spell.
For this spell you will need:
-One cup of dried basil
-One cup of dried hyssop
-One cup of dried pine needles
Mix all the dried herbs together in a large bowl. Split the mixture into groups depending on what type of flooring you have. For example, in my house we have about half hard floor and half carpeting. So I would split the mixture half in half.
For carpeting keep the herbs dry and mix them with a bit (like two big tablespoons) of baking soda. Sprinkle this on your carpet and then vacuum it up.
Fill a big pot with water and place it on the stove. Add the herb mixture and bring the water to a boil. Remove from the heat and let it cool completely. Once cool, strain out all of the herbs and add a tablespoon of vinegar. Use this water to wash your floors and countertops.
This spell will help you to break, stop, or banish any bad habits that you are ready to let go of. This spell is best performed during a New Moon. To perform this spell you will need the following items:
-Double terminated quartz crystal OR amethyst OR kunzite OR lepidolite
-A charm bag (a small drawstring bag that can fit in your pocket)
-Eucalyptus in any form
On a new moon take some time in contemplation on the bad habit you are ready to release. Take a cleansing bath or shower. Energetically and physically wash that bad habit off of your body and spirit. Watch as the water goes down the drain, taking your bad habit along with it.
Gather all the above items in one space. Light the incense and use this to smoke cleanse your body and the stone. Place the stone in the charm bag with the eucalyptus. Leave this out in your windowsill for the night.
The next morning, place the charm bag in your pocket. Keep it with you at all times. Put the charm bag under your pillow while you sleep at night.

Use this spell anytime you are seeking justice on a situation.
You will need the following supplies for this spell:
Set up your spell working space with the Justice card in the center. Ground the gravel root as finely as possible, focusing on your desire to justice.
Hold the candle in your hands and visualize your desire for justice coming to fruition.
Shake the gravel root across the parchment paper. Spread the oil over your hands and anoint the taper candle with it. Roll the anointing candle in the ground herbs. Again, focus on your goal for justice.
Write your desire for justice on the small brown bag piece of paper. Place this paper under the candle and light the candle. Sit with the candle as it burns focusing in meditation on your goal.
Use this infusion to help you to see the entities from the other realms (like fairies) more easily. This working is best done on a full moon, closer to the Spring Equinox or Beltane.
For this enchantment mixture you will need:
Use an incense like myrrh or frankincense to smoke cleanse the the jar. Fill half the jar with calendula and then fill with water to the top of the jar. Seal the top and set it in a cool, dark place. Shake this jar every day for seven days. On the final day, strain the water. Toss out the remaining plant materials and keep the water.
Use this water to connect with the fairy realms. You can put it on a cotton ball and swab it over your eyelids or you can anoint your third eye with this water. It will keep for a couple of weeks in the fridge or mix it with equal parts alcohol and it will keep longer.
*Don't use this mixture if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.
Banishing powder comes in handy when you need to rid yourself of troublesome entities. These entities could be in the form of unwanted people or spirits causing a ruckus. Powders are a form of discreet magick and spellwork. So be cautious when using powders, a little goes a long way.
Powders can be "deployed" where the troublesome spirit is hanging out or dusted on items or objects that the spirit may come into contact with. You can use banishing powders on candles for candle magick or dust it on a specific person's belongings. You can also sprinkle banishing powder where you know the unwanted visitor will walk.
When you deploy the power make sure to speak your intention out loud.
You will need the following ingredients:
-Dragon's Blood Resin
Use a bit more than a pinch of each of the ingredients (one part each) and combine them in a mortar and pestle. Grind until you have a fine powder, all the while focusing your energy and intention on banishing the unwanted energies.
Use immediately or put in a jar and store in a dark cool place. Make sure to label is correctly, you DON'T want to accidently eat this mixture.
Asperging is the practice of sprinkling liquids upon a person or thing to spiritually cleanse it. You might also (gently) smack a person's body with herbs that have been dipped in cleansing liquids as an asperging. This type of cleansing offers some of the same benefits as a smoke cleanse.
Different herbs and waters have different cleansing properties, but here are a few to get you started.
And so much more......what are your favorites?
A Rose of Jericho has many magickal uses. It can be used in prosperity spells, abundance work, calling in love, blessings, cleansing, protection, and tranquility. Not only does the actual rose contain these magickal properties, but you can also make a blessed water to use any time you need an extra boost of magick.
You will need: a Rose of Jericho, a jar, and water
Draw the rune Fehu on the lid of your jar and save it for later.
Take a dried Rose of Jericho plant and place it in a bowl of water. The plant will "resurrect". The water will need to be changed regularly, but don't throw out the old water. Instead, save up that water as blessed water.
Pour the water into your jar. You can add a bit of alcohol to help it last longer.
Full moons are an excellent time to ask for divinatory dreams, but sometimes dreaming can be a challenge. A pre-bedtime bath can help to jump start dreams and bring forth the magick.
For this bath you will need:
2 cups of mugwort tea*
4 dried bay leaves*
2 cups Epsom Salt
Draw a warm bath and add in all of the items. Light some candles, play some soft music and let yourself relax. After your bath immediately go to bed. Keep a journal nearby in case you wake up and need to write down any dreams you remember.
*DO NOT USE any ingredients if you are allergic or uncertain of any allergic reaction.
Blessing Oil can be used for healing, protection, and for calling in general positive energy. The oil can be used to anoint candles, magickal charms or objects, and even yourself. (Just make sure you aren't allergic to any of the ingredients, if you don't know, it's better to not use it.)
You will need a base oil of Olive, Jojoba, or Grapeseed. You will also need frankincense resin, benzoin incense, and kosher salt.
Get a small glass container and fill it almost full. Grind up three large chunks of each of the resins until they are a fine powder and add this powder to the oil. Finally add a liberal pinch of kosher salt.
Close the lid of the jar.
Shake the oil while speaking your prayers out loud. It is best to speak from the heart, but if you struggle with what to say try this:
I charge this oil for blessing and peace
I charge this oil for blessing and healing
I charge this oil for blessing and protection
By the power of three times three
As I will it, so mote it be!
Use this oil to bring blessings!
When you are in a situation where you are stuck, emotionally blocked, or feel overloaded work this spell to help clear the way. This spell is best performed at the ocean or a river. A place with living waters. Collect a bowl of living water and find a place where you can be along and undisturbed. Cry into the bowl collecting your tears and letting them mix with the living water. When you can't cry any more take the bowl of water back to the ocean or river and pour it out, releasing your blocks along with it. If you find yourself challenged to cry, let yourself emote in other ways, scream, moan, whine, get it out.
