- blue yarn
Start by gathering fresh herbs, of about twelve to fifteen inches long. Gently shake of any dust. If they must be washed do it gently and dry carefully. Bundle the leafy stems together. Hold your left hand and lay a hanging loop of yarn, extending a few inches above the ends of the herbs. Start wrapping a few inches above the ends of the herbs. Start wrapping the long end around the herb bundle and hanging loop end. Focus on your use for this herb bundle. (for room purification ritual). Continue winding the yarn around, being sure that the yarns lie falt against each other. Do this until you have gone up the bundle three or four inches. Next wrap the yarn around the herb doesil, about one inch between the yarns. Keep it taut. When you get to the top; reverse the herb and do the same process back to the handle. (this forms a criss cross pattern.) Make a slip knot over the top portion of the handle to secure it. Continue to wrap the handle portion. Cut off the free yarn, leaving a three inch tail. Tie the end of the yarn around the hanging loop. Tuck the free end under the handle.
To use; Dip the bundle into a chalice of ritual water. Sprinkle the area by shaking the bundle at it. Be sure to extend your arm out fully to allow the powers to flow freely.
