Telluriankey’s New Home Cleansing Ritual
I was reading up some of the medicinal and magical properties of these herbs and how it is common practice in Italy to gather eucalyptus branches on the shower was to relieve congestion. It made me realize how awesome it would be to make an herbal bouquet ritual for a new home.
What You Will Need:
A small bunch of basil
A small bunch of oregano
A small bunch of mint
A few twigs of eucalyptus with leaves attached
A few lavender stems
Rosemary (totally forgot to add this one)
Something to hang this all up (I used rubber bands as it tightens when the herbs shrink)
Arrange them as you would like and place them under the shower head. Start a hot shower. Once they are nice and wet take this and start sprinkling around the home as you chant a spell that resonates with you and what you want for your home ex. I said something along the lines of: “protect this home from negativity and those who wish us harm”.
Once you feel the job is done, place this herbal bouquet somewhere to dry. Once dried in a few days to a week, you can store it somewhere safe or use as a home decor! When it is time to move, simply take this bouquet an bury it. Start a new one for the next home. Feel free to alter this for other uses such as a financial aid, psychic aid, whatever you would like an use the appropriate herbs.

This is another info graphic I did advocating for snakes. When spring comes around snakes start to come out of hibernation and sometimes will end up in people’s backyards. Snakes around this time are killed left and right, whether it is completely harmless or venomous. I want to urge people to learn about snakes and also to leave snakes alone!
