Once you've made certain that no evil spirits can thrive in your home, invite some benevolent spirits to live with you. To attract them, make a small bouquet from rosemary, marjoram and mint leaves; tie it with a red ribbon. Fill an earthenware pot with water and add a pinch of salt. Put the bouquet in it and set it near your kitchen sink. Keep it well watered and pruned, replacing any withered leaves immediately. If you don't, the good forces may neglected in your home and move away.
As everyone knows, a witch's broom can help cast all kinds of spells. Here's one of them. Place a new broom (a vacuum cleaner won't do) on the floor in the middle of your home. Melt the bottom of a white birthday candle; fasten it to the broom's handle; light the candle and say:
"Broom sweep clean. Sweep out evil.
Sweep out discord. Sweep out anger.
Broom sweep clean. Sweep in joy.
Sweep in concord. Sweep in prosperity."
When the candle burns out, sprinkle a pinch of salt on each of your doorsills. Take the broom and sweep the salt into your kitchen, and out the back door, if you have one. If you don't, dump the sweepings into a garbage pail and empty it, outside your home, immediately.
