Use Herbs to Protect & Energize Your Space for the Holidays
During the holidays, people are coming in and out of your home, and you are going in an out of theirs. Energies, both positive and negative, are then brought into your home or personal space. With so much of this energy vibrating around you, it’s important to keep your energy field cleansed to prevent negative energies from dwelling in your space or for overactive energy to create chaos.
Of course, however, you do not want to insult anyone by sageing them as they walk in the door or declining an invitation to a party because someone has negative energy in their home. Luckily, there’s a beautiful, discrete way to protect your energy field.
Gather fresh or dried rosemary, orange peel, juniper berries and cinnamon sticks.
- Rosemary protects against negative energy
- Orange peel communicates the joy of angels to humans
- Juniper berries cleanse the air and ease tension
- Cinnamon sticks attracts abundance
Place these holiday herbs in a jar and fill with warm or hot water. The scent of the herbs will fill the space inviting in warm, winter blessings. Displayed in a mason or apothecary jar, the herbs will also make a beautiful display for any holiday gathering. The herbs in the water act to absorb any negative energy brought into your home from holiday stress or guests. This is a great way to both protect your space, and also is a great simple hostess gift. It allows you to bring some energy clearing to their space for when you are there in a loving and nonintrusive way.
