this cleansing spray is great for either cleansing your altar or sacred space, especially when you are not able to burn sage or incense.  

What you’ll need:

  • A 4-ounce bottle with a fine-mist setting. i personally use glass bottles, because essential oils can eat through plastic.
  • Optional 1-ounce alcohol; Vodka works fine. (dont use isopropyl or rubbing alcohol) the alcohol gives the spray a longer shelf life.
  • 2 1/2 ounces of distilled water.
  • Essential oils, preferably organic see recipes below 

keep in mind that If you don’t have one of the oils called for you could substitute it with something different, or leave it out all together. Feel free to play around and get creative. if you find a mixture isn’t strong enough you can always add more oil.

Wherever I go, let me go there with gladness.
Cast off the gloom and banish all sadness.
Brighten my path and lighten my feet,
Bring joy to my soul and to those I may meet.
