Candle spell to cleanse and bless a room
This spell will cleanse a room of any negative energy, and bless the room so as to fill it with positive energy. If you need to cleanse a house, each room would require one of these – they can be made together, in one room, then moved to burn down in each room. It can be done by a solitary or a coven – particularly useful if the coven contains an Earth element and a Fire element.
Basil Coriander Salt
Chamomile (can use tea) Sage Bay leaf
Rosemary Sunlight Vinegar
Appropriately coloured candle of an appropriate size to burn down and a bowl to burn it in
Any sunny, appropriate day during the waning (removing impurities) or full moon (boost power)
Perform spell in a room with the curtains open so the sunlight can come in. Put the candle into a bowl, making it stand up by burning a bit of wax in. Put each of the ingredients (herbs can be fresh or dried) in a circle around the candle, breaking/cutting up those that need to be to do this. Put the vinegar (enough to just cover the other ingredients) in last. Light the candles, and charge the bowls (visualise that they are glowing with energy) while saying the following incantation:
“Basil to purify, coriander to bless,
As the candle burns, let this house become a place of peace and rest.
Aided by the powers of fire and earth,
We cleanse this house and hearth.”
Put the bowl somewhere where the candle can burn down (nowhere near flammable objects), and let it burn down. If not making use of the candle at that time (i.e. as a gift), put the flame out and just relight when needed. Once candle has burnt down, leave the bowl in the room for a few hours or until it is felt that the room has been cleansed.

You’re welcome to share this spell, but if ever you do decide to formally publish a collection of spells (I’ve seen such things in book stores XD ) please get my permission before using this specific spell. I’ll probably agree, but just in case I’ve gotten to the stage where I have my own blog/book/whatever ;)
