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 eggs shells into a powder and use this powder to cast a circle, bless and feeding your garden. You can also grind dry herbs into your eggs shell to create Magickal powders for specific Magickal intentions and goals.
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. Draw protective symbols in areas of need to protect objects and your home. This powder can also be used to create a protective barrier around your home.
I saw a need to update this post because there appears to be some confusion on several blogs on 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 a small tree or tall shrub, rarely growing to 20 feet in height.
The uses for Cascarilla, including the powder, vary from treating and aiding digestive issues and to create Magickal barriers. If you are a Vegan Kitchen Witch, this is an excellent alternative to using eggshells. This powder is most often associated with Santeria practices.
Since there is a lot of perceived confusion about Cascarilla Powder vs. powdered eggshells, tell me how you came to know and use Cascarilla. Were you taught by an experienced teacher/practitioner? Did you read it in a book? I am eager to understand the association.
I invite your feedback.
Tell me what you think. Do you have any questions?
I love to know what my readers are up to and how you put my thoughts and experience to use in your world. Also, if you have any suggestions on subjects for future posts let me know your thoughts. I’m listening.
