Super Simple and Customizable Room-Cleansing Floor Salt
A little something to sprinkle over the floor to clean and freshen a room. Works for cleaning before a ritual or just as part of a cleaning routine to maintain healthy energies.
Ingredients
Salt
Lemon juice or zest
Cleansing herbs (I used basil)
additional herbs (rose for love, lavender for tranquiltiy, etc)
This can be made with salt and any mix of cleansing herbs. I used the recipe above for this photo, but other suggested herbs include mint, rosemary, sage, black pepper, and pine needles for cleansing.
I added lavender, as this was for a bedroom. I might also suggest chamomile, vanilla, and roses for a bedroom mix.
For a productivity room like an office, I suggest prosperity and inspiration herbs like cinnamon, ginger, jasmine, etc.
Procedure
Grind salt, herbs, and lemon together in mortar and pestle, working in a counterclockwise motion. Charge the mixture with the intent to cleanse the space however you see fit - chanting, singing, ringing bells, prayer, etc.
When everything is mixed, take the mixture in hand and toss it about on the floor, working counterclockwise again. Let sit for a while - you can leave the room if you wish, or stay and continue your prayers, chants, etc.
Personally, I like to put on high-energy music, and I sing and dance on top of it to charge it. 
Once the mixture has sat for a while, sweep or vacuum it up and discard. I like to light a white candle after doing any sort of cleansing to realign energies. Don’t forget to touch up any wards so that the negativity doesn’t come right back in!

If you want test tubes for herbs/spices, here’s a good place to buy them from!
I’ll admit, it’s a bit pricey. It’s about $36, but that’s for 70 tubes. And they’re glass! The corks aren’t included. According to this tutorial for the rack in the picture above, the cork size you’ll need is a ten. 

Bringing this back because it is relevant to my life right now.
