If you want to clear some stuck energy out of your home, there are hundreds of methods to try. Today, let’s do some space clearing with salt & candles!
Candles- particularly beeswax pure candles- are wonderful space clearing agents to take the stuck vibes out of an environment. Lighting candles doesn’t just create ambiance because of the dim flickering light- the actual element of fire is potent (in safe, small doses) for creating change.
Salt space clearing is a favorite of mine used in many ways, and today is one of the simplest and most elegant.
I used to stick candles into mounds of salt with intention, letting them safely burn in a fireproof dish. My intention was clear: the space would be clear. The candle would burn. The clearing would be done.
Then, I saw this done and was convinced it was so awesome I had to try it!
- Crust a bowl in salt by mixing sea salt with a little water and plastering it up the sides of a fireproof bowl as though you were making a pie crust. It’s very fun, it’s quite elegant, like creating a giant salt geode bowl.
- Then, plop your candle inside. I use small votive-size beeswax natural candles. You can use your favorite natural candles.
- Set a very clear intention for clearing space. What do you need to release?
- Now, light the candle and watch it burn. You can visualize negative energy being sucked out of the space as it burns!
(Note: I don’t ever leave these unattended or within reach of pets or kids! Burn candles very safely, please!)
I blow out the candle and restart the candle in clearing sessions until it’s used up completely, and that’s when I dump the whole interior of the bowl (the salt I put in the sink, the wax can be composted (as long as its natural!) and then I start over with some fresh salt.
Simple, gorgeous DIY space clearing!!!
