Christmas can be a very magical time of the year for me. I look forward to the chilly winter nights softly lit by Christmas tree lights and of course accompanied by a cozy cup of warm tea. Not only will your senses enjoy the therapeutic effects of the aroma, but you will also clear your home of stagnant energy and create the flow of prosperity, peace and purification. Below you will find brief descriptions of some of the vibrations some of these ingredients carry.
This aroma will definitely create a welcoming and cozy feeling throughout the house for you and your guests. Make sure to add enough water to your pot throughout the day and keep it simmering to at the lowest setting. Never leave items unattended.
Oranges are associated with prosperity and love. As a little girl, my mom would always cut an orange and made sure to cut the peel perfectly to display the orange spiral over the stove or around the house. She’d always say, “hang it for good luck”. It wasn’t until I began to be interested in the folkloric uses for everything around me, that I realized the energy oranges are associated with. Cut some orange peels and add to the simmer or let dry and place in a sachet bag to attract money and prosperity.
Cinnamon is a very powerful ingredient to add to any recipe for both its potent and pleasing scent. It is good to simmer to clear the air where someone may be ill due to it’s healing and purifying energies. It’s also great to add to any burning incense as it can raise your spiritual and protective vibrations. I added cinnamon to this simmer to raise the vibrations in the home.
Burning the seeds of a Star Anise is said to increase powers and to attract good luck and peace. I also added star anise to promote luck and peace during meditation.
Lemon water can be used to purify any object due to its purifying qualities. It also brings peace where there may be argumentative people present and insures understanding during discussions. Lemons displayed or decorated are used to promote friendships.
