I LOVE making my own room sprays. Not only are they easy to make, but they also have more uses than just making your room smell pretty! Sprays are a smoke free way of cleansing and clearing your sacred space or ritual items.
I recently was hired at an event to do Tarot card readings for two hours. I easily read for a 15 people in that time frame. The issue for me then became--ALL THESE PEOPLE LEAVING THEIR JUNK ON MY CARDS. My cards are a ritual item. I use them often enough and rely on them when I need clarification or just some guidance. When peope start touching my cards during readings, they are leaving their energy on them--big or small.
One way I cleanse my cards between each reading is to mist them with some cleansing spray. Cleansing spray is easy to make. Basically what you need is a good solid dark colored bottle (clear bottles can bring stuff INTO the spray-so stick with a dark bottle!), an essential oil that is used for cleansings such as frankincence, myrrh, patchouli, some purified water, a few pieces of sage (you can always break some off of a bundle) and something alchol based like witch hazel or Florida Water.
For my cleansing spray, I used birch tar. Birch Tar is one of those magickal oils that most people dont know to much about. It used in home remedies as an antiseptic and diruetic--which means its a great oil to get rid of unwanted things.
Below is my mini tutorial on how to make a cleansing spray bottle!
