Created from powdered eggshell, Cascarilla has been long used in Santeria. Wonderful for use in protection, purification & cleansing rites as it is a potent repellent of negative energies and a purifier of space. It can be used solid like chalk to write or draw symbols on a surface. When water is added to it, it can be used as a paint on the body or other surfaces. Cascarilla can be used to dust the body or around the home for protection or warding off spiritual entities, and aid in psychic protection or energetic vampires. Cascarilla can also be added to a bath for purification purposes.
