3 Protection Spells


Defense Against Social Media Overload 

Social media is a blessing in that it helps you stay in touch with friends and meet people from all over the world, but the flip side is that you are exposed to a constant barrage of disturbing news, arguments, hatred, and causes. Apart from reducing your social media use or limiting the kinds of accounts you follow, try this spell to help protect yourself from the onslaught of emotion that comes with social media use. 


What You Need: 

Pale blue candle 


Matches or lighter 

Quartz crystal 


What to Do: 

  1. Center and ground. 
  2. Light the blue candle. Gaze at it and feel the color fill you with calm. 
  3. Hold up the quartz and unfocus your eyes, gazing at the candle through the stone. 
  4. Say, “Quartz, help me sift through the emotion that vibrates in social media. Help me to safely identify what to devote my time and attention to, so that I can safely navigate the Internet without drowning in fear, anger, and pain. Help me resist clickbait, trolling, and guilt trips.” 
  5. Place the quartz at the base of the candle and let it burn down. Carry the quartz with you or leave it next to wherever you check social media most often. 


Purifying Bath 

Sometimes you need more than a quick fix. A purifying bath can help you relax. The blend of salt, rosemary, and sandalwood will help remove any negative energy clinging to you and reset your energy. 


What You Need: 

1 cup Epsom salt 

3 drops sandalwood 

1 teaspoon rosemary essential oil 


What to Do: 

  1. Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl. 
  2. Draw a bath at a comfortable temperature. Sprinkle the Epsom salt blend under the running water. 
  3. Soak in the bath for as long as you like. 


Lemon Cleanse 

You wash your face every night and your hands regularly… why not do a regular wipe down of any negative energy that has accumulated too? You can do this in the shower or anytime as a quick reset. Lemon is a traditional antidote to negative energy. 


What You Need: 

Lemon slice 


What to Do: 

  1. Envision any negative energy clinging to your body or aura collecting at the back of your neck. Visualize it as black or a murky brown, if that helps. (This may feel uncomfortable. Don’t worry. You’re about to get rid of it.) 
  2. Wipe the slice of lemon over the back of your neck, allowing it to absorb all the negative energy. Wipe for as long as you feel necessary. 
  3. Toss the lemon slice in the compost where it will decompose, and the energy it removed from you will be transformed. 


If the feeling of negative energy at the back of your neck is too disturbing, call it to collect in the palm of one of your hands, then use the lemon to wipe it off.
