This is a super simple cleansing spray for those whose situations prevent them from burning herbs. I use this when I have to cleanse something too large that calls for an amount of smoke that’d set the smoke detectors off (it’s happened; its not fun). Here’s what you need:
- Sage (I use basic sage, not white sage, but you can use whatever).
- A bay leaf.
- Good ‘ol H2O.
NOTE: the bay leaf is totally optional. I include it because I use bay leaves to help grant wishes. It adds a boost to the cleansing properties, and gives an oomph to the spellwork.
Put the water in a pot on the stove and toss in the salt, rosemary, sage, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, then reduce it to medium and let it simmer for a few minutes, so the oils seep out of the herbs. The wonderful scented steam will cleanse your kitchen in the process!
Once you’re satisfied (or until the water is a yellow-green color - yes, it will look like pee), take the pot off, pour the water into a safe container, and let it cool. Once it’s cool enough, bottle it up and you’re good to go! I always put some sprigs in my bottle just for the sake of it, too!
