Rue * Hyssop * Rosemary
A Perfumed Cleansing and Protection Asperge
“Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean” Psalms 51:7
To asperge is the rite of sprinkling an altar, space, or people with consecrated holy water. This is traditionally done with a sprig of a plant or a sprinkler device made specifically for this act called an aspergillum (most commonly seen used today in the catholic church).
As noted in the Key of Solomon the King Book II To create the Aspergillum take 9 herbs (Vervain, Fennel, Lavender, Sage, Valerian, Mint, Garden-Basil, Rosemary, and Hyssop) harvested and bound together during the day and hour of Mercury, bound with thread spun of a young maiden.
It is our belief that a sprig of any of the plants used in this formula or to the practitioners liking will suffice, aiming for something you can dip into the sacred perfumed waters and ‘sprinkle’ ritually for your aim.
Rue, Hyssop and Rosemary are well known herbs used in folklore and magic to aid in protection and cleansing rites and ceremonies. You may work with this asperge in spiritual baths and cleansing, to exorcise and protect an object or space before rituals and ceremony, to remove unwanted spirits, spells, and phantoms of illusion.
Pictured here with a sprig of Rosemary included w/ the bottle of perfumed waters that may in turn be used as an Aspergillum.
Directions: Pour 1 -2 caps into sanctified water and asperge, or in other words sprinkle the herbal water around an object, ceremonial space or whatever needs to be exorcized.

***Warning: Do not use this in a soaking bath as Rue is known to cause a photosensitivity.
