Wakan Tanka, Great Mystery, Teach me how to trust My heart, My mind, My intuition, My inner knowing, The senses of my body, The blessings of my spirit. Teach me to trust these things So that I may enter my Sacred Space And love beyond my fear, And thus Walk in Balance With the passing of each glorious Sun.

this cleansing spray is great for either cleansing your altar or sacred space, especially when you are not able to burn sage or incense.
What you’ll need:
A 4-ounce bottle with a fine-mist setting. i personally use glass bottles, because essential oils can eat through plastic.
Optional 1-ounce alcohol; Vodka works fine. (dont use isopropyl or rubbing alcohol) the alcohol gives the spray a longer shelf life.
2 ½ ounces of distilled water.
Essential oils, preferably organic see recipes below
keep in mind that If you don’t have one of the oils called for you could substitute it with something different, or leave it out all together. Feel free to play around and get creative. if you find a mixture isn’t strong enough you can always add more oil.
Altars don’t have to be super fancy. Sometimes, all it takes to create a sacred space is a bowl full of seashells or a candle. You could even place a small statue or stone that you like in a safe space. An altar is anywhere you are, any sacred space that you have deemed sacred and have made a conscious effort to do so.
If you have been in the vicinity of the sacred - ever brushed against the holy - you retain it more in your bones than in your head; and if you haven’t, no description of the experience will ever be satisfactory.
