I've mentioned smudging our homes to cleanse the energy and space in their homes. But sometimes we can experience that just; heavy feeling in the home.
I began cleansing my carpets every few months; and noticed a huge difference in my home. With cold and flu season in full swing, our bedrooms especially can begin to feel heavy, gross and depressing. To help combat this, I began implementing this carpet cleansing into my life and noticed massive shifts in the energy of my home (and the smells!!)
This is a simple tool that can be crafted by anyone, regardless of how much experience you have with essential oils!
Supplies you will need:
Baking Soda. 1 cup per room minimum
Himalayan Salt. 1/2 cup per room
Optional: Herbs per your liking
You can use any essential oils in this mixture. I love lavender, sweet orange and lemon in my mixture; but with the COVID19 pandemic you could opt to include oregano, tea tree, peppermint or eucalyptus.
For each cup of baking soda, I use 20 drops of each oil. Stir this in until it is no longer clumping, and then add your salt and herbs. Herbs that are good to use include sage, basil, oregano and cedar.
I will then liberally dust the mixture on the carpets and rugs in each room. I let this sit for 20-30 minutes and then vacuum the space, focusing my intentions on removing any negative energies, odors and replacing those with positive vibes.
This works great in rooms that have cat boxes, rooms where pets sleep often and rooms where someone was sick for an extended period of time.
It helps to sage before you begin, but this is your preference. I always sage before I begin to make this mixture; but the choice is yours.
Repeat as needed to keep your carpets smelling fresh!!
