Rub on the body for protection and

The protective nature of cascarilla seems to come primarily from its banishing qualities. It seems that negative energy cannot exist in the presence of enough cascarilla and spirit beings find it repulsive. Thus, a line of cascarilla acts as a barrier to the entrance of spirits and harmful or destructive energies.
The powder is usually tightly packed and, if stored for any time, will have begun to solidify and may come out as a solid chunk of chalk (indeed, it’s very similar chemically to chalk). This can be used as-is for drawing and writing with your cascarilla or it can easily be crushed into powder, sprinkle in the corners of each room of the house or workplace.
Also apply to body / sprinkle / carry a pouch around in pocket

my middle daughter is highly sensitive to energies whenever I chalk my home she tells me it feels different and calm and safe, she never even knows I have done it sometimes until she sees it!
