A Hearth Witch's Spring Cleaning

As the chill of winter finally recedes, we find the tendrils of foliage slowly unfurling—a reminder of fresh beginnings and spiritual awakening. Our inner workings are abloom with hope for the new year, and it is crucial for any witch—especially for beginner witchlings, or the domestic witches out there—to set their abode up for the coming Spring Equinox on March 20th.

When I was a younger, angsty witch, my interests related to magic would fall more towards the elaborate and aesthetically pleasing spells to do. I’d feel pretty official with my colored candles and bushels upon bushels of store-bought sage. Since then, my hands have been filled with the duties of new motherhood, and all that has somehow changed. I now practice most of my magic with the intentions of healing. For the Spring season, we hearth witches thrive on filling our homes with positivity and warmth through practical magic; we love sprinkling simple enchantments here and there with the intention of enriching our loved ones’ and visitors’ lives.

Today I’d like to share a few useful, sneaky little ways to incorporate the elements while personally blessing the layers of your house. These are inexpensive, and require herbs and ingredients you probably have in your pantry already.
