- a tablespoon guinea pepper or black pepper
- a tablespoon of anise
- a tablespoon of nigella
- about a bead’s worth of jet/azabache/lignite (ground or crushed as best as possible)
- On a Monday, starting with the coffee, mix all of the ingredients and crush them together as well as possible while singing or chanting to your gatekeeper.
- Let it sit for three days in a closed container on your altar or a sacred place.
- Sprinkle this on Mondays around your home near any possible entrances including drainage.
One of the good things about this recipe is that it looks like dirt, so nobody notices it. It also repels roaches and some other pests.
Blessings and Ashe!
