A Kitchen Blessing

To bless your kitchen, wash three stems of basil and tie them together to form a small “wand.” Facing east, hold the basil in your power hand and gently shake it as you move clockwise around your kitchen. As you do so, speak this charm:

Bless the pantry and every pot.
Bless the oven which cooks my food
and keeps it hot.
Bless each appliance, cupboard, and drawer.
Bless this kitchen, forever more!

Hang the basil to dry, and use it as needed in recipes to bless your food also. After the basil has been used, you can repeat this spell if
you wish.
