I was on the Lower East Side when I spotted an amazing store. It looked
like a dream environment. I went in and found handcrafted home furnishings
from North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia. I sat on all the
couches, admired the beaded chandeliers, and vowed that when I won Lotto
I would return. I noticed a basket of Evil Eyes from Morocco. Who doesn't
need a little extra protection? The evil eye is an ancient symbol, common
to all cultures, used to deter evil and provide protection.
Below is a recipe from the amazing Turkish psychic, Bahar. She guaranteed that it would remove all negativity and offer protection.
Fresh Start Bath
a tub with water. Remove the roses from their stems and add them to the
bath with the other ingredients. Submerge yourself for 7 minutes, rubbing
the flowers over you and asking that all negativity be removed from you.
Thank you for the recipe, Bahar, wherever you are!
Evil Eye is available as an 8x10 framed print, candle, T-shirt and greeting card,
