Cinnamon brooms are quite popular among witches and pagan practitioners, both old and young. Many people buy a new one each and every year. They usually hit the stores right before Halloween, but you could always opt to make one yourself. They can be decorated with ribbon or fallen Autumn leaves. This makes for an excellent pagan-themed Thanksgiving decoration. For Christmas or New Years, it can even be decorated with Christmas bells, or something similar.
Cinnamon Broom Meaning
Although these are called cinnamon brooms, they are actually made from pine straw.
The cinnamon scent comes from cinnamon oil, which is generously applied to the outside.
Pine is good for cleansing and money drawing, as well as love and good luck.
What Does a Cinnamon Broom Over the Door Mean?
Placing a cinnamon broom over a door has several purposes. Cinnamon is said to bring good fortune. Many witches and wicca practitioners feel that hanging a cinnamon broom over the door can attract good luck. They are also thought to be protective, capable of warding off negative energies. A cinnamon broomstick also brings a vibrant aroma to the room, in addition to being an awesome pagan-themed decoration.
How Long Do Cinnamon Brooms Last?
Over time, the scent of your cinnamon broom will likely fade. Many people simply buy a new one when they lose their scent, but you can always keep them and use them as a decoration. You could also renew them by applying fresh cinnamon scent. Cinnamon oil can be quite harsh, so be sure to wear appropriate gloves when handling it. You can dry your broom on some old newspapers, or something similar.
If you don’t want to handle cinnamon oil, you could try steaming your broom, which usually results in some of the fragrance being released from the inside, out to the outer layer. You can often do this a couple of times before it quits working. If this doesn’t work, then you would have to apply fresh cinnamon oil as noted above.
If you can’t find any cinnamon brooms in your area, you can either make one or buy one online.
