This is a herbal talisman which will keep your home safe, both physically and astrally. You will need:
- A glass jar with a lid
- Half a cup of salt
- Bay leaves
- Dried basil
- Dill seeds
- Black peppercorns
(Herbs can be found in your local grocery store or at World of Witchery).
Gather enough to fill the jar – try to use roughly the same quantities of each herb. When you have mixed everything in, put the lid on, and shake the jar nine times while saying:
Salt and herbs, nine times nine
Guard well this home of mine.
All of these nine herbs have powerfully protective properties, along with salt, which is an excellent cleanser. Keep this jar in the centre of your home to protect it from all who would do it or you harm.
