Gourds hung around the house are believed to guard against evil. They are also a beautiful decorative element to the home. I have some wonderful ones that I have collected from the south west.
Salt sprinkled around the house or added to bath water is said to purify the home and body as well as protect against harm. Salt and Gourds together give double protection.
Add salt and gourds to your bath water or sprinkle coarse salt in a clockwise direction around the home and place gourds near all windows and doors.
Brightest of Blessings and Protection,
