DIY Aura Cleansing Spray: Four Recipes

Updated: Apr 22, 2022

Clearing is the process of releasing and cleansing our energetic field. It's a necessary hygiene practice that should be done routinely to help keep your auric field clean. The practice of letting go of unwanted or unnecessary energies from our spiritual body is a practice that can and should be implemented by everyone.

When we cleanse our energy field, we are releasing all of the unnecessary energies and spiritual toxins that we picked up throughout the day that aren't in our highest interest. I usually do some kind of clearing practice daily, and many times, multiple times throughout the day.

It can be really uncomfortable, stressful and even painful to walk around with energy that isn't yours. And, toxic energies that aren't transformed properly, could eventually lead to physical problems and mental or emotional imbalances.

Below, I discuss some of my favorite ingredients to help clear my own personal energy field and the energy in my home. Plus, I've included my favorite DIY Aura Cleansing Spray Recipes below. These can also be used as smokeless smudge sprays to clear the energy in your homes, offices and other personal spaces.

First, let's start with the basics...

Supplies and Ingredients

The components of a good aura clearing spray may include your choice of the following ingredients and supplies:

  • Glass spray bottle

  • Distilled water

  • Natural preservatives or combining agents

  • Essential oils

  • Crystals

  • Herbs

  • Salt

  • Intentions or prayers

  • Label

Now, let's look a little deeper at each of these ingredients and their purpose.

Glass Spray Bottle

If you're using essential oils in your spray you'll want to use either a glass bottle or a container made with HDPE or PET (#2) plastic. Other types of plastics and metals may react with compounds within the oils, which could degrade and or melt the containers.

Before grabbing a bottle, you'll also want to decide how much spray you want to make. For example, you can choose a 16-ounce spray bottle for larger jobs like clearing your entire home. Or, you can choose small, 10-ml bottles to keep in purses, backpacks and smaller spaces. Of course, there are many other options to choose from!

A few of my favorite essential oil spray bottles can be found here and here.

Distilled Water

You can use regular ol' tap water in making your sprays, but I always prefer to use filtered water instead. Using distilled water ensures that your spray is as pure as possible and is free from most minerals and impurities. I think that having a mindful approach to the water you use will ensure that your spray is as high-vibe as possible.

If you're feeling extra witchy, you can even leave your water out for 24-hours under the full moon or charge it with crystals or Reiki energy. Perhaps you have access to a fresh stream, rain water or even melted snow. Honestly, there's no wrong way to do this, so let your creative mind soar!
