Spiritual & Magickal Tools For One And All

Cascarilla
(pronounced: kas-kah-ree-ya)

I am always surprised how many practitioners of magick are not aware of this awesome stuff because it is so useful in protection, purification and cleansing rites. I look at it as an essential weapon in my arsenal.

The only way someone might have issues with using Cascarilla would be if they are strict Vegans and do not like to even touch any animal byproducts.

Cascarilla is powdered egg shell.  The shells are so finely ground that it feels as soft as baby powder.  Any Botanica or store that caters to New Age and Magick ritual will have Cascarilla.  You will most normally see it packed into what I call a “ketchup cup.”  When removed from the cup, it maintains it’s form and can be used as one would use a soft piece of chalk.  Or, if mixed with water, you will find that the soft-chalk dissolves easily.  If you choose to buy the Cascarilla, you will normally see it packed into what I call a “ketchup cup.”  For most of the purposes, it is used as a piece of chalk, so the shells sold in stores are convenient.

Cascarilla repels negative energy, and the vibration of negative energy.

Different uses:
#1.  Purification baths.  See description of one such bath here: Bath for Purification

2.  As a piece of chalk to draw sigils, and circles of protection for Magickal rituals.

3.  This is great to have if you are going to meditate, astral project or perform visualizations.  You can use it as a powder and “dust” yourself with it or you can use it as a chalk and make the sign of the cross on different areas of your body (back of neck, forehead, temples, hands, chest and bottom of feet).

4.  If you have psychic abilities (Mediumship, Empathic, Clairsentient, Clairvoyant, etc), you can dust yourself or make the sign of the cross as previously mentioned, and it protects you from psychic attack and “energy vampires.”  Cascarilla also keeps away negative spirits.

5.  Cascarilla also keeps away non-corporeal beings (spirits, ghosts, demons, etc).  If you feel like your home may be haunted, this would be a good repellent (after a thorough house cleansing!!).  Be warned, if you have spirits around that you like talking to, you may find it more difficult to communicate with them!  Cascarilla does not discriminate between good and evil–it just provides a barrier between the physical and spiritual world.

6.  House protection: use as a piece of chalk.  Going around the house clockwise, etch the sign of the cross on either side of the door, above the door and on the threshold.  When doing the windows–do above, below, and both sides of the window.  Do this with all doors and all windows of the home.

7.  House protection (perimeter of home).  Click the link for an easy ritual for the perimeter of your house: Protection for the perimeter of your house

There are several other uses for Cascarilla, but these are the main uses.
If you like, you can check back with me.  I’ll be adding directions for different cleansings, rituals, and purification rites, some of which will include the use of Cascarilla.

  5. Cascarilla is a Caribbean plant known as Croton eluteria. I see many blogs confusing this powder’s name with the use of ground egg shells. Can you explain how you came to associate Cascarilla with ground egg shells?

    Cascarilla in Spanish typically refers to a husk or shell of something, not specifically an egg and certainly not specifically powdered. If a person wants to use powdered eggshells in their practice, that’s perfectly fine but don’t be calling it Cascarilla – because you are then co-opting a term used by Hoodoo and Caribbean practices involving a specific type of plant and erasing the long history of that plant’s use in magic.
