Use fresh herbs from your garden to make a cleansing wash for Mabon.

This herbal infusion can be used as a skin wash or a cleanser for your ritual space. By infusing the herbs in water, you can take advantage of the medicinal properties as well as the magical ones. A quart-sized jar, like the type used in food canning, is ideal for this because it allows for a tight seal, and they hardly ever break.

Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Varied

Here's How:

  1. To make this cleansing wash, we'll be using herbs that are in full bloom in the weeks before Mabon.

    You'll need a handful of each of the following:

    • Spearmint or peppermint
    • Sage
    • Honeysuckle
    • Goldenseal
    • Marigold

    Place the herbs in the glass jar. Pour boiling water over them until the jar is filled. Screw the lid on loosely, and allow to steep for four to six hours. Strain out all the plant material. Cap the jar, and store in a cool place. Use as a skin wash or to asperge your home or sacred space.
