Hold it! Before you toss those eggshells, let’s do something Magickal with them.
Magickal Tip: Create Egg Shell Powders by washing and drying your eggshells to make useful Magickal powders for a variety of purposes.
Grind your clean, dry eggshells into a powder and use this powder to cast a circle, bless and feeding your garden. You can also grind dry herbs into your eggshell to create Magickal powders for specific Magickal intentions and goals. To get your shell really dry place them in a low temp oven until the desired dryness is reached.
Try this, use your eggshell powder to make a kind of chalk. This chalk can be used to write Magickal symbols on just about anything. After you create a finely ground powder from your eggshells you can use your finger to draw symbols and signals on a variety of objects. Use it to protect objects, people, animals, and more. This powder can also be used to create a protective barrier around your home. Mix your eggshells with other protective herbs and use this mixture by sprinkling it around the perimeter of your home or property.
UPDATED, June 15, 2015 – I saw a need to update this post because there appears to be some confusion on several blogs regarding Cascarilla Powder. I even see Pagan shops selling this powder, and I fear the information they have obtained on this substance is incorrect.
Croton eluteria, also known as Cascarilla, is a plant species of the genus Croton, native to the Caribbean and is used in other tropical regions of the Americas. IT IS NOT EGGSHELLS, and eggshells do not make Cascarilla powder. Although the plant can be mixed with eggshells for a specific purpose. Cascarilla is a small tree or tall shrub, rarely growing to more than 20 feet in height. Its powder is most often associated with Santeria practices. Cascarilla, including the powder made from this plant, vary in uses from treating and aiding digestive issues and to create Magickal barriers. If you are a Vegan Kitchen Witch, this could be an excellent alternative to using eggshells. Since there is a lot of perceived confusion about Cascarilla Powder vs. powdered eggshells, tell me how you came to know and use Cascarilla. Did you learn from an experienced teacher/practitioner? Did you read it in a book on another blog? I am eager to further understand the association and relation.
I invite your feedback.
Tell me what you think. Do you have any questions?
