Whether you’re hosting the ultimate NYE Party tonight or you’re celebrating by resting on the couch with Netflix, here’s 5 fun things you can do with spices to bring you luck…
1. Wish Upon a Bay Leaf
Take a pen and write your wishes for 2023 on a bay leaf, then light it on fire and watch it burn it completely so your wishes come true. (Maybe do this outside in a metal bowl with a fire extinguisher by your side, and before any booze gets involved)
2. Spread the Cloves
Cloves are believed to ward off the evil eye, and give positive boosts to your aura. For good luck, pour whole organic cloves into tiny bowls around your home on New Years Eve & Day. Heading out for New Years? Put cloves in your wallet, pocket or purse and bring the good luck with you.
3. Pocket a Stick of Cinnamon
Bring some extra good luck with you by adding a stick of cinnamon to your pocket full of cloves. Many believe cinnamon, especially “true” Ceylon cinnamon from Sri Lanka, has very high spiritual/energetic vibrations that attract luck, money and emotional growth.
4. Sprinkle the Turmeric
Turmeric is thought to cleanse the aura and remove negativity. This is because, according to some Hindu beliefs, turmeric is associated with the planet Jupiter, which is ruled by Lord Vishnu (Hindu God who protects creation) and Goddess Lakshmi (Hindu goddess who is the energy of Vishnu and known for bringing good fortune).
Sprinkle high quality organic turmeric into your savory dishes tonight (or take a bath in it, as some do) and speak positive intentions and wishes for your new year. But ask wisely – some stories say Goddess Lakshmi won’t be on your side if you get greedy or you’re unwilling to put in the work to achieve your desires.
5. Sleep on Cardamom
Some people believe that cardamom can help bring you a more prosperous job or career in 2023. Just place a cardamom pod or two under your pillow tonight, then wake up and give it to a stronger tomorrow. (And maybe go ahead and apply for the job of your dreams too).
