• Cleansing incense
  • 3 candles
  • Bowl of salt water
  • Bowl of herbs (rose buds, lavender, rosemary, etc.)
  • Food and drink

Burn a good cleansing incense, like frankincense or sandalwood in the home while you prepare for the rest of the ritual.

You should proceed around the house, widdershins (counterclockwise) and cleanse the area with the salt water. Be sure to get each corner, window, door, drain, etc. Simply sprinkle a little salt water on each and ask that any evil or disruptive influences leave the place. When this is finished, proceed around the house deosil (clockwise) sprinkling the blessing herbs and invoke whatever deities or properties you wish on the home, such as peace, prosperity, tranquility, etc.

Use three candles on the central altar. Blue, symbolizing tranquility, green for healing and prosperity, and purple for protection or pink for love, or brown for hearth and home.

You and anyone who is to share the home with you should share food and drink, and don't forget to leave a little of the food and drink to take outside and return to the Earth that which has been given.
