✨ Cleansing in Witchcraft ✨

Cleansing is a way of removing negative or unwanted energies, spirits, and imprints from an object or a space. There are a number of simple rituals and actions that are done to cleanse. You can do as many or as few as you like, and create your own cleansing methods/rituals. 

✨ CLEANSING ONESELF

  • Brush your hair, morning
  • Ritual baths
  • Dancing singing
  • Visualization 
  • Drinking a tea designed to cleanse

✨ DISCREET METHODS

  • Brush your hair
  • Open the windows, let the new air come in and the old air out 
  • Light a candle
  • Playing a song you associate with cleansing
  • Ringing wind chimes
  • Wetting your hands in salt water and flicking the water through the area
  • Visualize light and colors, and manipulate the energy away

✨ OPEN AREA METHODS

  • Ring a bell through an area
  • Smoke cleansing / cense (not smudging)
  • Waft incense smoke around
  • Burn herbs, such as sage, rosemary, bay leaf, etc
  • Spritz lemon-infused water around, or salt water
  • Light a candle
  • Sprinkle salt or eggshell pieces in the windows and doorways
  • Use a besom to clean the negative energies out of the air like cobwebs
  • Wave a branch of a strong-scented herb through the area, such as mint
  • Toss a pinch of salt or herbs in the door ways and window
  • Touch each corner of the room and say a short prayer over each

✨ CLEANSING OBJECTS

  • bury in a salt bath
  • if water-compatible (not soluble, won’t react poorly, etc), let sit in a moon or salt water bath
  • pass through smoke
  • incense
  • rainwater, mist, snow, etc

My Tips for Healthy Natural Hair

• Don’t wash hair too often. Once a week, bi-weekly, or monthly is best. Use a sulfate-free shampoo because sulfate is a cleaning agent that strips all of the natural oils and moisture from the hair.

• Co-wash (washing with conditioner) to refresh hair between shampoo washes. This will cleanse the hair while adding moisture. Two of my favorites are Eden BodyWorks All Natural Cleansing Cowash and Creme of Nature Pure-licious Cowash Cleansing Conditioner.

• Keep hair moisturized. Dry, brittle hair will break off and frizz up, thus halting hair growth. My favorite leave-in conditioner is Shea Moisture’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil Leave-In Conditioner. It keeps my hair soft and moisturized for days!

• Use natural oils to seal moisture into hair after applying leave-in conditioner, and on the scalp to stimulate hair growth. For thick hair like mine, I like to use olive oil. Jojoba oil is also great for using on the scalp and hair as it is the closest natural oil to the sebum our skin produces. Coconut, avocado, castor, and grapeseed oil are also good.

• Deep condition at least once a week for 30 minutes to an hour. Deep conditioning the hair is vital to keeping it strong and moisturized. Shea Moisture and Eden BodyWorks make great ones.

• Sleep with a satin scarf/bonnet on or sleep on a satin pillowcase. Cotton pillowcases suck all the moisture out of your hair and create breakage and frizz.

• Detangle hair only when damp with water or conditioner. Use a wide tooth comb or your fingers and BE GENTLE.

• Avoid styling your hair everyday and avoid tight hair styles that put strain on your edges and nape hair. Low manipulation is key.

• Drink a lot of water and eat a healthy diet rich in protein, iron, zinc, and Vitamins A, E, D, and B. 

• Take a multi-vitamin daily and/or a hair growth vitamin. 

After rinsing out the Bentonite Clay mask from my friends hair. This is the second time I’ve done this and the week before I straightened her hair for an event. Curls are still there! This mask + her keeping her hair moisturized has made such a difference.

I mix bentonite clay + apple cider vinegar + tea tree oil to detox her hair and redefine her curls. It’s good to use maybe once a month or every 2 months to cleanse hair. Next time I’ll take a pic during the process!

Things take a turn when you receive an unexpected phone call in the middle of your shower 

1,212 words

fluff with a touch of comedy

There’s just something incomparable about the sensation of steaming hot water cascading down your body on a freezing cold day that fills you with bliss. The way each drop caresses and massages your aching muscles, molding you into a relaxed little bundle of nerves is a luxury you’d never trade away. The heat along with the background of music sounding from your phone that you propped up on the bathroom sink was always enough to keep you in the shower until every ounce of hot water had dissipated entirely. This day was no different. You’d already gone through your cleansing routine; scrubbing your hair with a gardenia scented shampoo followed by a coconut and hibiscus conditioner to restore moisture to your curls, exfoliating with a vanilla body wash and loofah, and of course rinsing it all off while thinking about life as one tends to do whilst in the shower for far too long. You’d just begun thinking about how long the snow storm was going to last and the amount of snow that had already accumulated when your music drew to a halt. Your ears perked in the direction of your cell phone, waiting a few seconds before opening the glass door to see - or more accurately hear - what the cause of the silence was. After no more than a second your phone rang, sending the generic “Opening” tone throughout the steamy bathroom. An unwilling groan came from your lips as you glared at the noisy phone from where you stood in your warm paradise. Nevertheless, the sensible part of you came to the conclusion that there was barely any warm water left and you’d have to get out to continue playing your music anyway. Opening the shower door enough to let the built up heat travel with you, you made your way over to the source of the vibration, half taking notice of the difference in temperature already. Upon seeing the goofy contact picture of Taecyeon on your phone your annoyance went down a notch and you answered the call with a guilty smile thinking of how you were so close to ignoring it just a moment ago.

Winnie what are ur favourite oils n what do you use different oils for? Love you x

This q is about like skincare oils right ? if so! I love coconut oil as a body moisturizer, especially the Trader Joe’s one. I separate some from the jar to use on my skin and use the rest to cook with! It’s also good on the ends of your hair. I don’t like to use it on my face and I’d only use it to moisturize the ends of my hair, not as a hair mask. I love almond oil for oil cleansing, hair oil, and moisturizer. It’s lightweight and scentless so it’s good for everything, I get it at Whole Foods. Josie maran argan oil is beautiful and I use it on my skin at night, in my hair and on my nail beds!

Big: Sea Salt Shampoo. I recently went into my Local Lush store and asked for a sample of Big. Because my hair is quite flat and boring. I fell in love instantly the smell is like a sea breeze, or well everything you want the sea to smell like. its fresh and uplifting and utterly perfect for my hair. It doesn’t just add volume it adds shine. But my favourite thing is that it utterly cleanses my hair making it beautiful. I’m blonde with fine hair, it lifts my hair and I think makes my hair brighter. I don’t wash my hair every day so this is perfect for when I want to wash my hair because it can cope without being washed. But if you do, I would use this maybe twice a week and add Seanik into your routine. I also use a light conditioner, because it’s salt it can be a little drying on the ends. The main ingredients are; Sea Salt, Lemon and Lime, Toothed Wrack Seaweed and Sea Water. The salt I find adds to the wonder of this shampoo, I love the feeling of it and the lather the shampoo creates. The salt lightly exfoliates the scalp also. It’s just so Fresh! So I got a big tub. 

yoongi: yeah… i dont care [scoffs]

yoongi: prob takes twenty min getting dressed. 15 min skin care routine. special hair treatment shampoo. deep cleansing masks every night. hair serums. takes hour long baths with bath bombs. designer brands. sunday is probably his spa night 

I love bath magick and all but like… shower magick. Salt scrubs meant to exfoliate and spiritually cleanse. Body washes for purification. A cleansing shower bag. Hair conditioner with sleep spells (if you shower at night) or to calm anxiety. Soaps charged with crystals in moonlight. 

I’m here for that.
