This summer, my clients made an offer on a house that was being sold because of a divorce. The house had already been on and off the market once. My clients made an offer, which was not accepted. The people who had their offer accepted backed out. I got a call. By that time, my clients were under agreement elsewhere. They feel like they dodged a bullet.
In the middle of this — when they still wanted this house — I consulted Vincent Russo about how to clean the weird energy from this house. (It definitely had something wrong with it that I could feel. I don’t think it was bad layout. I think it was leftover from the angry people who fought one another there.)
Everyone can feel a difference when a house has been cleaned or aired out – whether it is your new house or one you’ve been living in a while. For most new owners, it sufficient to clean the house and move in. Once the boxes are unpacked, it’ll feel like home. A cleansing goes deeper to rid a house of the leftover feel of the previous owners. Sometimes, the previous owners really have to be removed!
Today is the autumn Equinox. We are headed into the darker and colder time of the year. Most people are at home more. If your house needs cleansing, this is a good time to get started, before winter is upon us!
The spiritual practice of cleansing takes a few minutes a week. Vinnie’s prescription is this.
The physical cleansing comes from Yummy Life.
You can make a supply of cleaner that is non-toxic, cleans great and smells great by using the recipe below:
Natural Citrus Vinegar Cleaners By Monica
- Distilled white vinegar (or as pure alcohol as you can get)
- Citrus peels — lemons, oranges, limes, grapefruit
- Herbs — rosemary, thyme, & mint
- Spices– whole cinnamon & cloves
- Extracts–vanilla, almond, mint
- Essential oils (optional)
Make the scented vinegar concentrate:
Use a 2 quart jar or sealable container. Add citrus peels, spices, herbs, and extracts (see suggested combinations below). Pour in enough vinegar to cover completely (approx. 5-6 cups). Cover tightly and let sit for at least 2 weeks (or as long as 1 month), shaking the jar every few days to redistribute contents. Strain liquid and store in covered jar or container for up to 1 year.
Diluting the concentrate for use:
Mix in a spray bottle using 1/3 cup scented vinegar concentrate for each 2/3 cups water. Add 3-4 drops essential oils or 1/2 to 1 teaspoon extract to enhance scent, if desired. Shake and use for cleaning most surfaces. Not recommended for granite or marble surfaces.
Vinegar citrus combinations:
2. Lemon Rosemary. 3-4 large rosemary sprigs, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract, enough lemon peels to fill jar.
4. Grapefruit Mint. 8 large sprigs of mint (or 1 tablespoon mint extract), enough grapefruit peels to fill jar.
