Use several long branches of fresh rosemary, from at least one to two feet long, or how ever big you wish to make the wreath. Form the branches into a circular shape tying them together with a fine green cotton thread. When the basic wreath shape is made, use extra sprigs of rosemary to give it a fuller appearance. Secure the sprigs to main body of the wreath with the green thread. When you achieve the look and size of the wreath you want, you can dress it up by inserting other fresh herbs within the twines. The dried seed heads of rue, dill, and fennel work well. Make sure the wreath has a well-balanced appearance, and that the herbs are firmly attached to the rosemary. Now collect several of these flowers and poke 3, 7, or 9 into the wreath for added protection: snapdragons, cyclamen, garlic flowers, marigolds, carnations, or roses. After your wreath is finished, tie a red ribbon into a bow at the top or bottom of the wreath. Attach a string or fine steel wire to the wreath to hang it with. Hang it up wherever protection is needed; over the hearth, on the door, or even in the windows. Any type of protective herbs may be used in this powerful wreath. The fresh flowers, of course, will have to be replaced in intervals, but the herbs will dry beautifully!

This is a bare-bones, generic spell. Use when the energies in your home or in a particular room start feeling "off" or negative. This spell can be tweaked to suit your particular method of working or use as is. You will need: Small cauldron or other fire-proof bowl for burning herbs - one that you are able to carry. Your favorite protection oil Clearing herbs such as sage, cedar, rosemary, etc. Charcoal tablet (a half tablet would suffice) Matches Trace the pentagram starting from the top point - in this spell you are invoking Spirit. Meditate before you begin - make sure you're in the right state of mind to proceed. An Alpha state is the best. The Spell: Light charcoal in bowl/cauldron and when burning, drop a pinch or two of your clearing herbs into the cauldron. Take a minute to take in the energy of the herbs. Carry the vessel around the room - paying special attention to corners, closets, and places negative energy seems to linger. Project a clear, clean, white light with your mind and say: "By my will I banish all darkness and let in the light." (repeat around the room) When you've thoroughly cleansed the room, return to the center and put down your cauldron. Take up the oil and go to the North. Trace a pentagram on the wall (window sill, door frame, etc.) Say: From the North I call to Thee. Blessings of the Spirit Be upon this place. Go to the East and say: From the East I call to Thee. Blessings of the Spirit Be upon this place. Continue to the South and West, changing the blessing accordingly. When complete, return to the center of the room and place more herbs on the charcoal. Stand still a bit and feel the energy of the room/space. Again, project white light outward, mentally filling all the nooks and crannies. When the energy feels right to you say: This room is sealed Protected from harm. Light replaces darkness As I will, so mote it be. Note: This spell can obviously be expanded for an entire house. Just begin in the center of the house instead of the center of the room. If you are uncomfortable calling on "Spirit" for protection, you can substitute the name of your Deity.
