House protection spells can be beneficial, whether you feel threatened in your home or not. These types of spells are not only used to keep negative energy and evil spirits out of your home, but can also help in creating a barrier against physical threats and harm as well.

All protection spells gain extra power if they are cast on a Saturday, a day ruled by the planet Saturn which is known to govern over bindings, protection and defensive magick. As for the ritual, you have a few options – select one that best suits you.

Salt and Herbs

Salt is one of the prime ingredients used in house protection spells, and should be used generously. Coarse sea salt works best, but you can substitute it for regular table salt if you do not have the option. The simplest way to protect your house is to pour a line of salt crystals along your windowsills and doorways, though a more complex ritual involving other components, such as the addition of certain herbs, would enhance the power.

Several herbs are more effective than others in exercising protection magick, and can be incorporated into various spells, including the salt barrier mentioned above. Some of the most potent herbs to use in spells are Anise, Rue, Fennel, Witch hazel, Mistletoe, and Horehound.

Object Burials

Many spells directed at protecting a home involve burying a combination of magickal items or ingredients. Placing particular objects in the earth can create a stable and permanent sphere of protection around the house.

  • The Witch Bottle - An age-old house protection spell, the witch bottle is a powerful charm that you personally create. You need a large jar (glass not plastic) with a tight-fitting lid. Using your imagination, you must assemble together a medley of sharp, broken items, such as shards of glass or mirror, rusty nails, etc. and place the pieces into the jar, filling it to the top. Now pour vinegar over the contents, screw the lid on tightly, and seal the rim with melted wax. The next step is to bury this Witch Bottle in the ground, at the front of your house.
  • Stones and Crystals - If you prefer to work with stones or crystals in the performance of your house protection spell, black stones such as jet, onyx or obsidian, as well as genuine amber, are excellent choices. Bury the selected stone or crystal just outside your front door or, if you wish to create a large protected area, bury 4 pieces at the cardinal points, that is the north, south, east and west corners of your property.
  • Smudging - For protection within the home rather than outside of it, try the Native American tradition of smudging. It requires that you burn herbs or incense, and walk through the house with the smoke trailing around you. Not only will you create a protective space, but you will also eliminate any negative energy that may be dwelling in your house. Use bundles of white sage, or incense sticks of sandalwood or anise.

Keep in mind that no matter the number of house protection spells you might cast, it should not deter you from taking the standard precautions for safety. Keep your doors and windows locked at night, and have a neighbor watch your home if you are going to be away for more than a couple of days.

Spells to Sell

If you are trying to sell your home, there are some special spells to sell a house that can really add a boost to your conventional real estate efforts and help clinch that sale.

One particular spell to sell a house has become quite popular as it is easy to perform. You will need a statue or image of Saint Joseph. Granted, it may not be simple to find but some metaphysical shops and Catholic stores carry them. Now although the procedure may seem bizarre, it works. You have to bury the statue upside-down, facing your house, and preferably somewhere outside in the front lawn, near the door or walkway. You can pray to the Saint if you wish, but it is not necessary as his image alone will help draw people to purchase your house. Good Luck!
