Cleanse your space with custom cleansing blends

I have always been interested in creating my own custom blends for cleansing spaces. As I have researched and experimented with different herbs, resins, and oils over the years, I have learned how powerful and transformative these custom blends can be. In this article, I will share my knowledge on creating custom cleansing blends from scratch.

Why make your own custom blends

There are several reasons why I choose to make my own custom blends rather than buying pre-made space cleansing products:

  • Control over ingredients: When I make my own blends, I can select each herb, resin, and oil that goes into the mix. This allows me to create blends tailored to my specific needs and intentions.

  • Potency: I can adjust the ratios of the ingredients to make very potent blends that effectively cleanse energetically. Shop-bought products are not always as strong.

  • Affordability: Buying all the separate ingredients in bulk quantities is more affordable in the long run compared to purchasing pre-made blends repeatedly.

  • Crafting process: I find the entire process of crafting cleansing mixes to be enjoyable, relaxing, and magickal. I infuse my intentions into the blend as I bring the ingredients together.

How to choose ingredients

Choosing the right ingredients for your custom blend is key. Here are some of my top tips:

  • Herbs: Dried herbs like sage, rosemary, mugwort, lavender are excellent choices. Think about the energetic properties you want to impart.

  • Resins and woods: Resins like frankincense, myrrh, copal produce cleansing smoke. Sandalwood, cedarwood and other woods also work well.

  • Essential oils: Eucalyptus, lemon, lemongrass, tea tree and other crisp, fresh smelling oils are perfect for clearing stagnant energy.

  • Carrier oil: You need an oil base to blend the recipe together. Some options: jojoba, grapeseed, sunflower seed.

  • Intention: Focus on your intention for the blend as you select the ingredients. What type of cleansing or clearing do you aim to perform?

How to prepare and mix the ingredients

Once you have gathered your ingredients, here are the steps I follow to prepare and mix a custom blend:

  1. Measure out the herbs, resins/woods, and essential oils in the desired ratios and amounts. I like using a digital kitchen scale for accuracy.

  2. Blend all the ingredients together in a glass container until well-incorporated. Mix thoroughly so everything is evenly distributed.

  3. Funnel the mix into a storage container like a glass jar or tin. Ensure there is a tight sealing lid.

  4. Optional: You can take the extra step to energize your blend further by leaving it to infuse in moonlight or sunlight. I like to infuse intention into the mix through rituals.

Key tips for mixing:

  • Maintain cleanliness to avoid contamination
  • Use glass, wood, ceramic or stainless steel containers
  • Label jars clearly with name, date, ingredients
  • Store blends in a cool, dark place to preserve shelf life

How to use your custom cleansing blends

There are a multitude of uses for these special cleansing mixes. Be creative and experiment! Some of my favorite ways to use them:


Smudging with smoke is excellent for purifying energies. To smudge with my blends, I simply pinch a small amount and burn it slowly over a fireproof bowl, allowing the fragrant smoke to permeate the space I wish to cleanse.

Safety tip: Have proper ventilation and fire safety measures in place when smudging indoors. Never leave burning smudge sticks unattended.

Simmering potpourri

You can also simmer a large spoonful of the blend in water on the stovetop. Let the delicious aroma from the vapor permeate your home. It infuses your space with the powerful cleansing qualities of the ingredients.

Spray bottles

For a simple cleansing spray, add approximately 1 tablespoon of your custom blend per cup of water in a spray bottle. Shake well before misting around your space. The water will take on the energetic properties of the herbs and oils!

Bath sachets

Fill a small muslin sachet with some of your mix and tie securely with string. Toss this cleansing sachet into a nice hot bath and soak up the benefits! It turns an ordinary bath into a magickal potion.

Direct application

The blend can also be gently swept around the body or specific areas by hand, either as is, or diluted into an oil base if you have sensitive skin.

I hope you have found inspiration on crafting your own custom cleansing blends! Feel free to adapt my guidance to suit your own style. Creating these special mixes is incredibly rewarding.
