Warding is... a gentler form of defensive magic. It's used in a general sense. Warding is used to protect and guard from negative energies. It is used to redirect energy away from your or your space
Guardians Create a guardian to guard your home or space from negative energies. Use a small object, enchant it with your intention, and keep it in a safe, permanent place
Crystals Corresponding crystals can be worn as jewelry to protect against negative energies. Placing crystals in a room or around your home will create a protective barrier
Salt Sprinkle salt around your doors and windows or make protection jars
Herbs Burn protective herbs and pass the smoke through your space or tools, or sprinkle herbal oils and tinctures on yourself and your space
Visualization Use your intention and energy to visualize a powerful barrier of protecting light around you or your space
Banishing is... far more specific and direct. It is a very strong form of defensive magic. Banishing is used to get rid of a particular energy, spirit, or person permanently.
Use the Elements Burn a slip of paper with your target's name on it. Throw a leaf with your target's name on it into a running river. Burn corresponding herbs and pass the smoke through your space
Candles Anoint your candles with corresponding herbs and oils, then burn it. When the candle has burned out, the banishing is complete.
Sigils Make your own banishing sigil or find one that resonates with you. Place it in the space or on the item from which you are banishing the energy.
Herbs & Tinctures Use herbal smoke to force energy out of a space or object. Make a spray or herbal tincture to sprinkle around your home
