Purification Ritual for New Magical Tools
by Jame Kambos
Whenever you buy a new tool for magical workings it is important that the tool is purified. This is a simple purification ritual that I use to cleanse my new magical tools:
caldron or any heat-proof dish
Ignite the herbs and let them smolder awhile. As the smoke curls about you pass your tool through the smoke and say:
“Smoke rise, Let me be wise. This (name of tool) is cleansed.
I will use it only for good.”
The item is now ready to use!

- All Saints Day is a day of religious feasting that, with no coincidence, follows the originally pagan holiday of Halloween. More than 2,000 years ago, Celtic peoples in Ireland, Scotland, and Great Britain held harvest feasts to which they believed the souls of their dead returned. These feasts evolved into what we now know as Halloween.
