Rose Ariadne's Chitchcraft Blog

Dear Students,

I must apologize for neglecting the blog for the past few weeks. Due to the Simple Spell Casting E-Kit, and all the work around it, I just didn’t have time to post. But I’m back on track now… I really need a vacation! ;) Speaking of “vacations”… next time you take one, why not make it Magickal?

Planning a family vacation is often stressful enough without having the additional worry of how your home will fare when you are away. Constantly fretting over a burglar breaking in or some freak storm causing damage to your home can really prevent you from having a good time while you are away.

There are a number of different spells and methods of protection that can be used to add an additional layer of protection to your home while your family will be gone. Now, it’s important to remember that using these magickal methods of protection is meant to be an additional means of protection. Common sense and good judgment should still be your first priority in protecting your home while everyone is absent. Lock your doors and windows, turn off all unnecessary appliances, have a trusted friend or family member check on your home occasionally; all of these things are still essential in helping to keep your sanctuary safe. However, unless you are having a round-the-clock house sitter keep an eye on things, it also can’t hurt to add a few layers of magickal protection as well.

There are many methods of magick that can be used to protect your home. You can use just one, or employ a variety for a strong circle of protection. I personally enjoy making an easy potion that can be left in the home while I’m away, or even be left in place when my family is home. This particular potion and spell can be used to protect both your home and the people and items within it. To make the spell, you will first need to gather your materials. Fortunately, you probably already have many of these ingredients already in your kitchen. For those you don’t have, you should be able to easily find that at your local grocery store. To make your protection potion you will need:

A medium size jar with a lid
Enough salt to almost fill the jar
5 cloves of garlic
5 tablespoons of dill seed
5 tablespoons of anise seed
5 tablespoons of dried basil
5 tablespoons of dried fennel
5 tablespoons of dried sage
5 bay leaves
5 tablespoons of black pepper

Place all of the ingredients into separate small bowls upon your altar, with a large bowl in the center to mix the ingredients in. Cast your circle to begin working your magick. Start by placing the salt into the bowl and say “Salt that protects, protect my home and all that is within.” Continue adding each ingredient into the bowl with the same chant, only changing the name of the ingredient added. Do not mix the ingredients as they are added, you want to wait until all ingredients are in the bowl.

Once you have added each ingredient, slowly mix all of the herbs together using your hands. Envision positive, protective energy coming through your body and into the ingredients. Visualize your home being enclosed in a shining, safe white light. Pour the ingredients into the jar and tightly seal the lid. If you desire, you can light a white candle and melt a small amount of wax around the seal of the jar to add an additional seal. Place the jar in a secure location in your home. When leaving my home, I will usually place the jar right by the front door. Otherwise, I will place the jar in a hall closet or somewhere else that it will not be tampered with. When you place the jar in its secure spot, say the following words, “Salt and herbs contained inside, protect and guard this home of mine.”

This is just one method of home protection that can be used while you are away from your home that will add an extra layer of protection and help give you a sense of security while you travel. Another method of protection that you can use is to bury crystals around your home or property edge that are known for their protective powers. Some crystals, such as quartz, riverstone, ruby and halite, work better for protecting your home or other buildings than others. Cleanse the crystals before use to rid them of any negative energy, and bury them around your home to help add an additional layer of protection.

These are just a few of the methods that can be used to help protect your home while you are away. Of course, these methods can be used anytime, whether you will be away from home or not. You may be surprised at how much that extra little bit of security will help put your mind at ease and help you have a great vacation without stressing as much about how things are at home.

Brightest Blessings,
