Super Simple and Customizable Room-Cleansing Floor Salt
A little something to sprinkle over the floor to clean and freshen a room. Works for cleaning before a ritual or just as part of a cleaning routine to maintain healthy energies.
- Lemon juice or zest
- Cleansing herbs (I used basil)
- additional herbs (rose for love, lavender for tranquiltiy, etc)
This can be made with salt and any mix of cleansing herbs. I used the recipe above for this photo, but other suggested herbs include mint, rosemary, sage, black pepper, and pine needles for cleansing.
I added lavender, as this was for a bedroom. I might also suggest chamomile, vanilla, and roses for a bedroom mix.
For a productivity room like an office, I suggest prosperity and inspiration herbs like cinnamon, ginger, jasmine, etc.
Grind salt, herbs, and lemon together in mortar and pestle, working in a counterclockwise motion. Charge the mixture with the intent to cleanse the space however you see fit - chanting, singing, ringing bells, prayer, etc.
When everything is mixed, take the mixture in hand and toss it about on the floor, working counterclockwise again. Let sit for a while - you can leave the room if you wish, or stay and continue your prayers, chants, etc.
Personally, I like to put on high-energy music, and I sing and dance on top of it to charge it.
Once the mixture has sat for a while, sweep or vacuum it up and discard. I like to light a white candle after doing any sort of cleansing to realign energies. Don’t forget to touch up any wards so that the negativity doesn’t come right back in!
