Spells for Blessing and Cleansing the Home and Person

Re: Bath Gone Awry

Accidents will happen, but as a sign directly after a cleansing bath, such a mishap does have a bit of "hmmmmmm" quality about it. I would repeat the work.

There are some interesting posts here about errors during rituals that may be of help to you as well.

Purification Station

Unread postby snake » Tue Mar 24, 2009 1:35 pm

I'm setting up a "purification station" in my bathroom so that I have everything I need for cleansing in one place and can do it when I shower daily. So far I have Florida water and two white candles. I also made a little mojo type thing filled with rue, hyssop, devil shoestring, devil pod and salt. I've been using it to clear my aura. I don't think I'm using those herbs right. It feels kind of silly and I'd like to have something else to use for daily purifications. In addition to the usual herbals baths what sorts of products and things can I use for quick daily cleansings?

Octagon Soap is great for this kinda thing, its not a full on spiritual bath but is wonderful for a bit of daily cleansing. Smells great too. :)

Black hens' eggs and also their feathers made into a 'broom' are both used for cleansing. Besides salt, other minerals are camphor and bluestone (though actual bluestone is toxic; Miss Cat has a page on it, http://www.luckymojo.com/bluestone.html). Other herbs are eucalyptus, sage, pine, rue, benzoin resin, and white clover flowers.

You say you don't think you're using the herbs right, but you don't really explain what you are doing.

A quick and simple cleansing bath is to put fresh mint, basil and a splash of Florida water into a pitcher of water before you shower. When you're done with your regular soap and shampoo, pour the pitcher of herbs over your head and wipe downward, praying to be cleansed and purified. Stand between the 2 white candles and air dry. The herbs will brush right out of your hair.

It's real common to use cleansing soaps in between cleansing baths. Fan Laundry Soap and Octagon Soap are both scented with Lemon Grass. Fan Medicated Soap and Pagoda Special Soap are both scented with Camphor.

Fan Laundry Soap, Cleansing, Lemongrass scent
Manufactured in Shanghai, China, scented with Lemongrass, and wrapped in waxed paper, this is one of the most authentic of vintage soaps available. Lemongrass is used for spiritual cleansing and is the core scent in Chinese Wash, which was very likely inspired by the fragrance of this or a similar old-time soft Chinese laundry soap. Truly a soap from the past! Use it for the same purposes as Chinese Wash or Van Van products. $3.50
SOA-CHI-FANL

Fan Medicated Soap, Uncrossing, Camphor scent
Chinese soap scented with medicinal herbal essences: helps troublesome skin conditions and clears away jealousy, evil spirits, and unnatural illness. Use it for the same purposes as Uncrossing products. 3 oz. bar, in vintage-style Art Deco box. $3.50
SOA-CHI-FANM

Octagon Laundry Soap, Cleansing, Lemongrass scent
Old-fashioned Lemon Grass scent for spiritual cleansing and spell-breaking. Use it for the same purposes as Chinese Wash or Van Van products. A large bar, in an old-fashioned paper wrapper. $3.50
SOA-CHI-OCTL

Pagoda Special Soap, Uncrossing, Camphor scent for Protection
Camphor is used in magical rites of protection and cleansing. This soft, old-fashioned square-block shaped bar from Thailand has a most exquisite Camphor scent, and the old-fashioned pink paper wrapper with a picture of an ancient pagoda on it is just as charming as the fragrance. Soothes and refreshes the skin and makes a good lather for thorough cleansing. 3 oz. bar, in vintage-style Asian style wrapper. $3.50

I put teh herbs and salt in a little muslin pouch and I've just been sweeping it through my aura after bathing. I feel better afterward, but I think I could probably put the herbs to better use.

I agree; the herbs will probably help cleanse you a little more if you physically use them. Cleansing in hoodoo, to the best of my knowledge, is done on the physical body using physical materials with spiritual ties.

I hope that makes sense, if not I'll try to reword it.

update on bath gone awry

Unread postby beccaw » Sun Apr 05, 2009 1:58 pm

well, i am stumped here. repeated the bath, and took the bathwater to a crossroads. when i emptied it some of it splashed on the back of my legs. don't know if that means anything or not. my uncrossing kit arrived yesterday and today i started my spellwork, following the instructions that came in the kit. dressed the candle, burned some incense and did the bath. accidentally got some of the bath water in my mouth as i poured it over my head, spit that out in the used bath water. went back to my bedroom where the incense and candle were and the candle had completely melted away already, the room obviously smelled like burnt wax which was really yuck lol! i'm not sure how to interpret this. perhaps i put too much sachet powder on the candle and it burst into flames? perhaps this is a sign that the work took really well? or that it didn't? also of interest to me that i'm not sure how to interpret: on my way home from work friday i saw what looked like a reflection from a mirror on the side of a house- an 'x' with a circle around it. i actually stopped and backed up to pull over and get a better look at it as it was very large(5 feet across?) and very unusual. then just now while i sat here i noticed that same exact symbol is on the logo for the uncrossing kit. i'm interpreting this as a 'hi five' from spirit, does that sound correct?

I would interpret everything as going well. When a candle burns quickly that is usually a sign of speedy success.

It all sounds good.

Actually, the uncrossing is a better choice for you unless you have a drug/alcohol problem and/or problematic friends you want to lose. Cast off Evil helps get rid of bad influences, whereas Uncrossing gets rid of all forms of bad luck. Here is the link: http://www.luckymojo.com/mojocatspells.html

Home cleansing with incense as opposed to floor washing.

Unread postby marcoa » Thu Apr 30, 2009 9:04 am

Hello,

I promised good friends of mine that I would purify and cleanse their new apartment before they move in. I have done work like this before, but always using a traditional floor washing technique using Van Van crystals, then setting up protection with salt in corners and making St. Michael packets for the front and back doors. Then, I use a money house blessing wash on the new moon to draw prosperity in to the home, washing from front to back. My friends apartment is 95% carpeted, so I can't really use floor wash in this situation. I am planning to use incense to cleanse the home instead. My questions are, will censing the place instead of the floor wash have less powerful, equal or different cleansing effect? After I cleanse with a cleansing incense, can I burn money house blessing incense with the same intention as the m.h.b floorwash? How long should I wait to burn m.h.b after I burn cleansing incense. Any thoughts are appreciated!

I cleanse my room with sage all the time, and I have a friend who burns camphor as well in her room. I think as long as you have incense burning in each room you should be fine. I would do this rather than burning it in one place and expecting it to reach throughout the house. For the floor wash, I was thinking you could get a spray bottle, and spray the carpet in addition to incensing the place. I would wait to do the money house blessing after I cleansed the place.

How long do you normally wait to do the money house blessing after you cleanse? I would follow the same principle you normally do.

You can still use floor wash and should. I would get a broom and lightly use Chinese Wash from the back to the front door and get rid of the broom off the property, when done. You do not have to drench the place; just lightly pass the broom throughout the place, especially the corners with a dab of the Chinese wash. Carpet or no carpet, I would use water in cleansing.

Good luck!

Marcoa,
You can also fill a spray bottle with your traditional floor wash mixture and spritz each room with that and then go over it with a broom as Mary suggested.

take care,

How to cleanse oneself

Unread postby Angelina » Tue May 05, 2009 11:03 am

Hi all,

Just wondering, after doing hot foot work, or uncrossing for someone else, is it okay to simply take a shower-just plain water, and then afterwards air dry and light a white candle annointed with holy oil and read a Psalm for cleansing? Can i put Hyssop water in a spray bottle and spray it on my body also?
Thank you

Well, you probably need more cleansing than that. If you do not have a bathtub, you can work the hyssop that way. I would do the 13 herb bath though.

If you have a bath, take a bath with Hyssop. If you only have a shower, then what I advise is: make a Hyssop tea and bathe with that just as you would any other spiritual bath.

You can spray yourself with Hyssop and you can also anoint your body with Hyssop oil (in an appropriate base like almond or olive oil)

Lighting one candle is fine, but often when taking spiritual baths we use two candles, arranged in the bathroom so that you are walking between them and I especially like this symbolism of going through a symbolic gate fresh and clean after doing harsher work.

good luck,
Bri

performed Bath Cleansing; worse than before!

Unread postby Angelina » Thu May 07, 2009 5:06 pm

Hi all,

On a previous post I had wrote that I performed a ritual cleansing bath for my husband the other night and even massaged him with the uncrossing oil while praying Psalm 37. The only thing i did not do right was empty some of the bath water at a crossroads. I instead washed it down the drain.....This morning, he developed a terrible foot pain when he woke up and could not walk on it at all. He had a previous injury on this foot which was getting better. I am just wondering if my mistake cost him to get this pain worse than ever before- he cannot work for the time being, so we are one paycheck less and we can't afford for this to happen now but it did- After many tests, the hospital cannot figure out what's wrong with his foot- I think I must do this bath over again; besides this what else can I do? i am worried i made things worse. :-(
Thank you
Angelina

Any job that does not work is just that; it simply doesn't work, it does not cause more damage. (In my experience and speaking generally) If your husband's ailments are spiritually based, then the cleansing is a good start, followed by protection. It sounds to me that he needs cleansing, protection, and healing-- in that order. This is the most effective way of preventing future problems. Money Stay With Me products are also used in situations such as yours, where you need to keep the money you already have.

Hi Angelina. First off, don't beat yourself up. You tried to offer some relief to someone you love, and the fact that it didn't turn out the way you'd hoped doesn't mean your heart wasn't in the right place. You now understand the traditional way of bathing, and you'll do it that way next time. One thing you need to keep in mind, though, is that it is entirely possible that your husband's problems are of an purely physical nature, and there is no spiritual issue involved. That is not to discourage you from doing further cleansing; cleansing is never a bad idea, and it's a great place to start. You just need to remember that doing so may not achieve the kind of relief you're looking to give him ... and that doesn't mean you did the second cleansing "wrong" or anything like that, he may just need work of a different sort. And even then, time may be a big factor in the healing process. I agree with the folks who posted previously: healing seems a good route to explore. You might also consider having a divination to determine his needs more specifically.

Good luck. I sincerely hope things start getting easier for you and your husband.

I have lots of hair and I have found it acceptable to blow dry my hair after bathing, you just don't wanna towel it off first. You can also drag a space heater to the bathroom and air dry in heat as well, the point is just to keep the water on your person that it dries on you.

I have a ton of hair as well. Usually, I'm bathing early enough that I have time to let my hair dry for a few hours and then finish off the remaining moisture with a blowdryer if I need to (it's very thick, and Tulsa is very humid, so there's often some residual dampness). I haven't found that this dampens the effect of the bath at all. There's always the option of bathing from the neck down if getting your hair wet is a problem, but I have to say, I love starting with the head. The scent lingers in your hair all day, and getting the occasional whiff is a continuous pick-me-up.

The easiest is a salt bath. Everyone has salt. You can also mix in a teaspoon of ammonia.
Ammonia is usually found in household products like Windex Glass Cleaner, its optional though. The Salt bath should do it while reciting a protective psalm like psalm 23 or 91.

cast off evil or bring positive things

Unread postby Miss Phoenix » Fri Jun 19, 2009 5:20 pm

Hello
I have a question about what is most appropriate in my situation.
Before having my son I was very social and had a great deal of friends/acquaintances but for about 3 years I have been in this period of my life where I have not been as social as I used to be partially because of motherhood but mainly because I have been dealing with some very difficult situations in my life was depressed and wasnt up to being social.

Although things are still going on, life is getting better and I want to be more social -- I have been going out more and dating more, but somehow things are different with me and I dont seem to have the same effect of effortlessly making friends and being social and happy go lucky. I want to get that back and also draw good positive people into my life.
I have started doing baths to cast off evil and things to get rid of bad people but
I wanted to know whether I should stick to just casting off evil or should I do something to draw friendships and positive people toward me... If so what do you all recommend?
or is this just a really silly thing to try to even do?

If you are already doing Uncrossing/Cast Off Evil/ Cleansing types of work, then I would strongly suggest doing some work for general peace in the home and spiritual uplift (a bath of basil, rose petals, cascarilla, milk, and honey is one gentle option; Peaceful Home Herb mixture is another), as well as attraction work to draw blessings, friendship, and luck to you (7-herb bath is one option), particularly as the moon starts waxing. Drawing in what is desired is the other half of the work, once the clearing and cleansing portion is done.

All that said, if you find that (healthy) things you used to enjoy are no longer enjoyable, and you are more socially isolated than you were previously, you may also find it useful to consult your doctor, or see a counselor, first to screen for symptoms of clinical depression, and second, to evaluate what therapeutic options might assist you to increase your awareness of and ability to access more social options, as well as help you find ways to enjoy the ones you already have more.

Good luck!

I am in a similar situation - before thoroughly reading this highly informative LM sight, I've always used incense (Frankincense & Myrrh), oils (Fiery Wall & Van Van), sage. basil, and protection Archangel Michael & Guardian Angel candles to protect my apartment, which is mostly carpet. I also have a Hasma Hand/Eye of Fatima over my front door, and a Horseshoe Anti-Evil Eye Amulet right next to my back door.

I recently ordered Chinese Wash and Buffalo Ammonia to properly cleanse my apartment before doing any further spiritual work. However, since I already live there, and have a lot of walls/corners blocked by furniture, as well as full closets, cabinets, etc. should I move the furniture & other items to spray corners and areas close to walls (w/a spray bottle mix of water & Buffalo Ammonia or Chinese Wash)? Also, do I wipe down all furniture as well? Lastly if I'm to purchase a broom for all this, do I have to throw it away (i.e., remove from my property), or can I just give it one final cleaning w/the Buffalo Ammonia or Chinese Wash? If I am to dispose of the broom the 1st time, will I have to dispose of a broom every time I clean my apartment (I'm thinking that could get costly)??

Please advise. Thanks so much!

Hi Azna21,

Many people only do a thorough move-the-furniture-get-down-to-the-baseboards-type of cleaning once a year (at most). And many folks who do this may buy a new broom as part of their larger cleaning process (especially if a year's-worth of cleaning has worn the old broom out). Others only buy a new broom if they are actually moving into a new house/apartment (ie: don't bring an old broom into a new living space). I do not know of anyone who gets a new broom for every routine cleaning of their home.

I like to take baking soda (which is cleansing by itself) and mix it with a few drops of a cleansing or blessing oil. Then I sprinkle it on the carpet and vacuum.

you could powder the herbs that you normally use in water, and sprinkle on the carpet then vacuum. I've done that with sage before, I just put it in a mini-food chopper.

I used to do that when I lived in carpeted apartments. Now I also mix some spring water, sea salt, and Florida water in a spray bottle and spray corners, walls, doors, windows, even pillows and curtains etc because I have physical limitations with wash buckets, but I can lift a spray bottle.

I plan to do the same thing with spring water and a small amount of Chinese wash, its not quite the same, but, you do what you can with what you've got. I think you could spray that on the carpet lightly, then brush over it with a broom too. You don't need to saturate the carpet like u would if it was a rug shampoo to physically clean the carpet.

HTH!

Here's a nice way that I learned how to do simple house cleansings...

Mix Holy water with Florida water & using a sprig of Rompe Saraguey (Bitter Bush)
Sprinkle through the whole house/apt/etc. EVERYWHERE... Windows, doors, closets, etc.

Now burn on a charcoal a mixture of Frankincense & camphor and smoke the whole place very very thick (kinda like a High Mass on a First Class Feast Day) THAT kinda thick :-)
Praying the entire time the Our Father & Hail Mary

Once finished sprinkling and smoking take little pieces of camphor and place them in the corners of each room and.........there ya go...

I have bought brooms before very cheaply that were sorta crappy at actually physically getting dirt up (have to sweep everything 3-4 times if you try that) but ive used them for paint brushes and all sorts of stuff and now that im beginning this I dont see why it wouldnt be perfectly suitable low cost solution to broom disposal if it was required...

Is it ONLY in the place that you feel that way, or is it that you feel that way all the time but its STRONGER at your place?

Either way I think you're right to wanna get some cleaning done but I wouldn't simply stop with the house. I'd start taking a series of cleansing baths (I love Hysop baths & Psalm 51) as well to get any stuff off of you spiritually.....You can either make up the bath yourself or, Miss Cat here has GREAT products that I would and have recomended such as:

Cast Off Evil Bath Crystals & Oil
Uncrossing Bath Crystals & oil




That's just my humble opinion......

BTW, if you live in Hawaii etc, there is a sacred Hawaiian sea salt called 'alaea that is apparently traditionally used in much the same way as regular sea salt is in hoodoo. It was and is used in cleansing and blessing - also used to season and preserve food. I have a strong preference for it over plain regular sea salt because it's made with Hawaiian volcanic red clay and as such tangibly has the spirit of the 'aina in it. By the way, it doesn't taste any different than any other salt, but apparently the trace minerals found in the clay are good for you. :mrgreen:

That is very much the same way I feel when my own place becomes in need of spiritual cleansing. Note that it gradually, slowly builds, and I find I often don't realize it needs cleansing until it feels like just what you described. Too, there's an element of wanting to just -get away- from that pressure. It feels difficult to think - I too feel smothered.

Chinese Wash and Peace Water are about 10 times more traditional in hoodoo than Florida Water. Even older in hoodoo is ammonia, pine-leaf tea, salt, or a mixture of salt and pepper.

As for old-school incenses in hoodoo: that'd be pine resin incense. The Cherokees and other Native tribes of the East and South East used it to rid homes of "rattling spirits" and they communicated its use to many great conjure doictors of Geoirgia and the Carolinas, who popularized it all over the nation. World-culture folk magic is of interest to many, and if you were asking about Chinese folk magic house-cleansing incense, i'd tell you to burn Camphor... but there's probably someplace else to discuss all those other cultures, and this here is a hoodoo forum.

Spiritual Cleansing - Does it nullify all previous work?

Unread postby path2success » Tue Jun 30, 2009 4:16 pm

1. I just got to know that before we start any work we need to do a cleansing. Now if I have already done a honey jar without cleaning & also lit some vigil candles will all that work be nullified if I do a spiritual cleansing? Or will it only get rid of the unwanted energies?

2. I am working with someone on my case. But I have also ordered loads of supplies from LM. I decided to start my work, just because it makes me feel in control and keeps me positive.

Im worried if I start my work and after that if my rootworker does a cleansing to start their work will all my effort vanish :( ?

Your work just won't be as affective. Without doing a proper cleansing, you are essentially putting beautiful clothes on an unwashed body. Would you put on your finest outfit without taking a shower? Because essentially that is what you are doing whenever you try to draw something to you when you have not been cleansed.

So you can do the whatever work you want to, but don't be surprised if it is not too effective since you need to be cleansed. Also, if you are working with a rootworker, you need to consult with him or her about what you are doing. The two of you could be at crossed purposes.

Good luck!

Rue, Rosemary & Basil Bath

Unread postby jwmcclin » Wed Jul 01, 2009 5:06 am

Has anyone experienced a Rue, Rosemary and Basil bath. According to LM website it is used to improve health matters, remove jinxes and for protection. As for disposal I would think to throw in front yard because you want the work to strengthen, am I right? Also is it thrown at sunset, prior to sunset or when you complete bath. Now I have read this but i need a better understanding from those who have experienced this bath.
