Epsom Salt & Fire Clearing
I learned this technique many years ago from my Mother and Grandmother. You need to have something to burn in that can take heat and has a wood handle. I use an incense pot that has a wooden handle. Remember that fire burns away and transforms and the salt absorbes

How To Do an Epsom Salt BurnYou will need:
Gently pour 1 tablespoon of isopropyl rubbing alcohol/surgical spirits onto the salts. You want your salts to be damp, not soaking. If you’ve poured too much alcohol, add a little more salt. If you try to light the salts and the flame burns weakly, you’ve added too little alcohol. The ratio is about 2:1 Epsom salts to alcohol. Take caution you’ve not accidentally poured alcohol on your hands or clothes.
Make sure everyone at home is part of this ceremony. There should be a firm intention to clear through any stagnant energy. Ask for assistance from your guides, angels, ancestors, or God.

When you’re ready to begin, light a long stemmed match or taper. Touch the flame to the salt/alcohol mixture. It will instantaneously ignite and burn blue with a little bit of yellow flame. If you’re getting too much yellow flame, you’ve put too much alcohol into the mixture. If you feel as if the flame is burning unsafely high, smother it with a pot lid, which will extinguish it. Add a little more salt to the mixture and try again. The good thing about the burn is that there’s no smells or smoke.
When you’ve successfully lit the salts, imagine the blue flame eating up all the dense, stagnant, and negative energy. Affirm that it’s leaving the home.
The flame will burn as long as it has to and when it is done will simply sputter out. If your vessel can be carried safely through out the house, move through each room you want to clear, affirming again that dense energy is leaving the home.
Afterward, discard the cooled salt down the toilet to flush away negative energy. Say a prayer of thanks to your deity of choice or spirit protector for helping you clear the energy of your home. Ask that the energy be sent back to source with love and forgiveness.
The results of this cleansing ceremony are immediate and powerful. Sounds are sharper and clearer and the energy feels lighter.
Good luck and be safe!
If you are nervous about walking through the house with the fire simply place it on the floor with a trivet under it and let it burn. Do this in every room.
