I've been busily trying to move all of the useful posts from natural cooking over here and the result has been an awful lot of talking about food. While normally I wouldn't see that as a problem I did want this blog to be about more than just cooking. Another very important aspect of being a kitchen witch is keeping up with the house cleaning. Both the magickal and the mundane.
Hopefully in the next week and a half we'll be moving into our new apartment and I'm going to have to get stocked up on some cleaning supplies. So for your enjoyment and my own information I've compiled a small list of some basic cleaning tools and both their magickal and practical applications.
Besom/Broom- An implement used for sweeping, usually consisting of a bunch of twigs, straw, or bristles bound together and attached to a stick or handle.
Besoms are associated with the Fae and are comprised of both masculine (the phallic handle) and feminine (bristles) components. These can also be used to replace a wand or staff. They are often used for protection and as a traditional tool in pagan handfastings.
Besoms are also often used for clearing out negative energy, next time you sweep the floor visualize all of the negative occurrences that have happened in that space being swept away
