Hi, I grew up in a conservative christian homeschooling family (not Dugger, as in ‘19 kids and counting’ conservative but definitely Focus on the Family conservative and if you don’t know what that is it is fine, but they basically equated something as simple as playing Dungeons and Dragons to satanic and evil practices… So I'm sure you can guess what they would think about the craft… Although I must say their radio drama’s are high quality and sound amazing and despite not agreeing with much, I love listening to the stories!)
Anyways, I have always been pretty drawn to the occult or mystical and around a year ago I really started to try and learn more about witchcraft. Most of what I have gleaned is through youtube videos and so far only one book about wicca (it was the only one on witchcraft like stuff I could get on my library’s app…) and I am starting to try and incorporate what I have learned and felt connected to in my life.
However, I am currently living with my eldest sister, her husband, and their 6 month old child. My eldest sister and I are the most alike of our siblings and we both have a ton of allergies especially to pollen, plants and foods. She is even further sensitive to strong fragrances so items like incense, most scented candles, oils, and strong smelling herbs are not items I can use in house and her husband is from wildfire country and is very wary about my starting any kind of fire outside.
I guess my question is basically do you have any ideas for things I can use to replace some of these elements in witchcraft? I would especially appreciate ideas pertaining to cleansing as I have started to gather items and I want to remove outside and negative energies before I start using them.
