A glass of pure spring water is typically maintained on an altar, to call in spirits and feed the ancestors. Many find Spirit Water a stronger substitute. This is a favorite of the Spiritualist, community and may be used to summon your own ancestral spirits, or in seances or other necromantic spells.
1. Add one tablespoon of anisette to a glass of spring water.
2. Place it on the altar instead of, or in addition to, the standard glass of plain spring water.
Cover graves with a carpet of daisies and bluebells to bring peace to the deceased and joy to the bereaved, and to invite the presence of benevolent guardian spirits.
A carpet of chamomile planter over a grave encourages the dead to sleep and also eases their passage to the next realm.
Plant aloe vera on the gravesite in order to soothe the deceased, ease any sense of loneliness or abandonment, and prevent their longing for the living.
