Your Magical Home- Mystical Crystal DIY: Sweeping Change

Cerridwen Greenleaf, author of The Witch’s Guide to Ritual, has written a guide on how to make your own home purification broom, check it out.

To purify your home, you need this special broom. A home purification is handy for clearing away bad energy after a squabble with your loved one, a bout of the blues, or just about any upset you need to get out of your personal space. I would go so far as to suggest that you sweep the negative energy outside every morning in your life. Bear in mind, this is not white glove-type cleaning; it is a symbolic act that is quite effective in maintaining your home as a personal sanctuary.

You can make your own purification broom from straw bound together and attached to a fallen tree branch, or you can add mojo to a store-bought broom. Wrap copper wire around your broom or use it to bind the straw to the stick, as Venus-ruled copper lends an aura of beauty and keeps negativity at bay. Attach crystals to the handle with glue to boost your broom. Recommend crystals for space clearing and purification are:

  • Amber for cheeriness;
  • Blue lace agate for tranquility; 
  • Coral for well-being;
  • Jet for absorption of bad energy;
  • Onyx for protection;
  • Petrified wood for security;
  • Tiger’s-eye for protecting your psyche from energy draining powers; and
  • Turquoise for relaxation and calmness.
