2 black candles
1 sage stick (or a palo santo stick)

How to cast the spell
- Sit on the floor (or on a cushion) near the main entrance to your home.
- Light a black candle to your right side and another one to your left. Light the sage and place it in a cauldron or ashtray in front of you.
- Watch the smoke rise and spread throughout the room. Hold the carnation in your hands and visualize how the smoke cleanses your life and your home of all negativity.
- Picture a white light coming from the carnation and wrapping your whole body. Imagine how it slowly grows and fills the space around you. Focus on feeling safe, healthy and free from damage. Meditate on this as long as you want and then say:
- When you are ready, open the front door of your house.
- Let the smoke out, and with it, all the negativity will flow away.
- Leave the carnation outside, by the door. Put the candles in a safe place and let them burn completely.
- Do not cleanse with smoke near young children or pets.
