House energy cleaning powder

I helped a friend the other day by cleansing the energy of her newly purchased home.  It was a foreclosed property and there were already problems (they haven't moved it yet as they are working on some major repairs before they start living there).  I walked around and felt the energy.  Surprisingly, it wasn't bad- a little sad and there was certainly a sense that things hadn't worked out according to plan.  We left a small offering under a quince tree for the beings associated with the land and then we sprinkled a powder to deter negativity and invite positive change.

The powder is rather simple to make and most of the ingredients can be found in your kitchen cupboard or at a health food store.  Mix it with a mortar and pestle or a glass bowl, then transfer to a old spice jar for convenient application.

20 drops peppermint oil
1/4 cup salt
5 drops lavender oil
3 drops chamomile oil
1/2 teaspoon sage
1/2 teaspoon pepper
a dash of clove
1 tablespoon cinnamon

Sprinkle in a counterclockwise fashion to repel or clockwise to attract.  A new or full moon would be the best time, but other days would work too.  This makes quite a bit of powder, so feel free to store it for future use if you'd like- check you almanac or Llewellyn.com.
