Clean House Powder

Intent: To cleanse a dwelling of negativity, "heaviness," stale energy, bad atmosphere, etc.


Lemon Peel
Solomon's Seal Root
Arrow Root
Blue Vervain
White Oak
Sage (any color)
Salt (both black & white)


Mortar & Pestle (or spice grinder)
Mesh Strainer
Collection Dish

Note: Powdered versions of most herbs are available online. See Online Resources for recommended vendors.. Also, if you can get your hands on a good spice grinder, you can make your own powder from dried herb products.

Grind each ingredient separately to produce fine powder. Sieve the material through the mesh strainer into the collection dish; this removes the larger unground pieces and gives you cleaner powdered herb. (Pro-Tip: Putting a funnel under the mesh strainer reduces lost material and makes collection much easier.)

Combine the component powders in the collection dish, mix well, and bottle immediately. For volume, go heavier on the less expensive or more easily available materials like Lemon Peel, Cayenne, and Salt. Otherwise, combine in more or less even amounts.

Sprinkle a pinch in the corner of each room to dispel heaviness and clear the air, so to speak. Useful for spring cleaning and touch-up jobs throughout the year. Add to floor washes, incenses, or charms for general cleansing and purification of the home.
