About The Event
Floor washes and holy water are some of the most well-known methods of psychic cleansing and protective magic in the history of kitchen witchery and folk magic across the West. Whether using an aspergil, or adding a little something to your bucket and mop, participants will learn about the cleansing power of water when combined with herbs for magical intent. In this class, participants will make a herbal aspergillum, learn charms for its usage, and also create a herbal bath charm for personal protection. Guided meditation and incantations will be used to honour the ingredients we blend.
Participants will need: rosemary, thyme, bay leaves, dill, juniper berries, and sea salt
Optional: rowan, hyssop, rue
