Wall of Fire Property & House Protection Spell

Intent: To protect a house and property from unwanted intruders.

Ideal Timing: Full moon


    Dragon’s Blood powder or oil

    Ground sea salt

    Cinnamon stick

    Peppermint leaves

    Bowl of water (at least 2qt size, like a mixing bowl)

    Optional: red food coloring or hibiscus tea bag

Note: If Dragon’s Blood is not available, you can substitute chili peppers, hot chili powder, or tabasco sauce.



Make an infusion with the cinnamon stick and the peppermint leaves, about a cup’s worth. (This can be done by simmering a spoonful of peppermint and a small piece of cinnamon stick in two cups of water for 10-15 minutes. Remove the herbs and let cool.) Combine this with the Dragon’s Blood and ground sea salt in the bowl of water. If desired, add a few drops of red food coloring or swirl the hibiscus tea bag in the water to add red color.

Stir slowly, pouring your will to protect your home and property into the bowl as you do.

Take the bowl outside to your property line. Walk all the way around your property, sprinkling the water along the line. Invoke whatever deities, ancestors, or personal or household spirits you feel are appropriate and ask them to help protect your home, or simply reinforce the casting with your own will. Say whatever words you choose. If it helps, imagine the droplets of water springing up as tongues of fire when they hit the ground.

Reserve some water and use it to wash the thresholds and windowsills. If there is anything left, keep a little bit in a bottle in your kitchen, on your altar, or wherever you feel is appropriate. If you have asked anyone for help, leave them a little thank-you offering. (I find bread or cake and a bit of wine do the trick nicely.)

The idea of this spell is that you place a magical wall of fire around your property and your house. Any intruders coming onto the property may find themselves getting a a hot bite on the foot and should not wish to remain.

Take appropriate practical measures to protect yourself and your home, and refresh the ward as needed.
