3 Last Minute Ways to Cleanse Your Space Before the New Year
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
-Isaiah 43:18-19 (NIV)
We are officially into the last day of the year and 2017 was a doozy to say the least! Go into 2018 fresh and clear by purifying your home both physically and spiritually. Read on below for my 3 simple ways to cleanse your space before the new year to start off on the right vibes.
1. Burning Medicinal Herbs
You may have seen my previous post about the scientifically proven benefits of burning medicinal herbs in your home. Burning medicinal herbs in your home, also known as the ancient art of "smudging," can kill 94% of aerial bacteria. And those benefits remain for up to 24 hours after the smudging. Medicinal herbs such as sage, lavender, or osha root are great ones to use.
You can also repeat a scripture or mantra/affirmation as you are cleansing your space with the herbs; one of my favorites is Psalm 91:10-11 (ERV), personalizing it with "I" and "me" for every "you" and "your."
"So nothing bad will happen to [me]. No diseases will come near [my] home. He will command His angels to protect [me] wherever [I] go."
2. Essential Oils
I use essential oils for pretty much everything. They have the ability to enhance your mood and cleanse your space. My favorites for cleansing are lavender, peppermint, orange and lemon. In addition to using them in a diffuser, I sprinkle them straight onto rugs, mattresses, pillows and in doorways leading outside as well as windowsills. You can also spray my new Crystal-Infused Love Mist in every room to usher in the harmony. The essential oils you use will disinfect and repel bugs as they steer you towards good vibes from their aromatherapeutic benefits.
Be careful as the oils can stain some fabrics, in my experience the spots always go away on their own or after a washing.
3. Elbow Grease
This is a simple one that anyone can do. Use all natural, nontoxic products to literally clean your space. Get clothes you no longer want/need packed up and ready to be donated. Spend some time getting caught up on laundry (including linens, towels, table cloths, etc.), wipe down counters and vacuum. Going into the new year with a physically clean space will do wonders for your mind as well as your spirit.
