Pine

  • 1/4 cup almond or other carrier oil
  • 8 drops pine oil
  • 8 drops cedar
  • 5 drops juniper
  • ground myrrh – approx 5 or 6 small lumps
  • ground frankincense – approx 5 or 6 small lumps

Grind the frankincense and myrrh into a very very fine powder. Heat them with the carrier oil over very very low heat or in a small potpourri cooker for about an hour or so – when the fragrance is released you will know it is time.

Once that is done add your essential oils and combine all ingredients. For a decorative touch, add a sprig of pine or cedar to the bottle.

  • 1 cup salt
  • 3 drops rose geranium oil
  • 4 drops synthetic ambergris oil
  • 2 drops pine oil
  • 8 drops magnolia oil

Lightly mix the ingredients together and place them in a jar for storage. Use during the Waning Moon

Helpful Tips:

Add the essential oils drop by drop, one ingredient at a time, until the scent seems right. Mix with a spoon (or shake) until all salt particles are moistened. Be prepared to spend some time doing this, perhaps a half hour or so. Here is where a plastic bag comes in handy!

If the Bath Salts are mixed for a ritual purpose, visualize the energies within the oils merging with each other and with the salt as you mix. Keep the salt’s goal in mind while you stir. Use or store until needed.

This is highly recommended for a preliminary cleansing when moving into a new home. This floorwash removes old vibrations and emotions lingering from past residents and allows you to begin with a fresh slate.

  • Make a strong infusion from basil, hyssop, and pine needles.
  • Strain and add to a bucket of rinse water, with vinegar.
  • Cleanse floors and surfaces as needed.

While this is called a “floor wash” it’s actually more of a rinse. So, you will always begin with a clean floor.  The reasoning behind this practice is to infuse the surface with the vibrations of the wash, so that it will then attract or dispel the corresponding energies.

Traditional methods call for you to scrub the floor on your hands and knees. The repetitive motion and low concentration level needed allow for a shift in consciousness to take place. Incorporating a chant as you wash will boost the powers of the wash and help your goal to manifest even faster. Remember to be as specific as possible in the wording of your chant.

The floor (or other surface) should be allowed to air-dry, so that its power radiates into the surrounding atmosphere.
