How to do an Imbolc House Cleansing Ritual:

What You how to do an Imbolc house cleansing ritual _Festival_February_3rd_2007Need
• Salt
• Sage or sweetgrass
• A candle
• A bowl of water
• Blessing Oil

First, physically clean your house. Once your house is clean – Begin at the front door and go through the house in a clockwise direction. Smudge the perimeter of each room with the salt, sage, candle flame and water. You may wish to say some sort of incantation as you do this, something like:

I cleanse this space with the purifying power of water, the clean breath of air, the passionate heat of fire, and the grounding energy of earth

As you pass from room to room, anoint each door and window sill with the Blessing Oil by tracing the shape of a pentagram or other symbol of your tradition. You can offer a small incantation as you do this, something like:

May the goddess bless this home, making it sacred and pure,
so that nothing but love and joy shall enter through this door.

Finally, once you’ve gone through the whole house, come back to where you began and close the circle with a symbol of infinity.
