Natron

Natron is an ancient Egyptian salt based cleanser that was used with embalming mummies. However, it also had a lot of different uses beyond that purpose. It was used for dyes and pigments and to clean your teeth, predating toothpaste! It is simple to make, though it can take a while before its ready to be used. I plan on making some so that I can properly purify the Isis necklace I bought off Amazon.com. I kept wondering why I felt weird or wrong wearing it. Isis didn’t like it either and I think its because it wasn’t properly cleansed according to Egyptian standards. It will be an experiment, to say the least, as I am not well trained in creating things in the kitchen.

I also learned that my garb is inaccurate. The least likely color they would have worn was black. Talk about making a mistake in choosing my costume! I will have to find something better. My book even details how to make clothes for ritual, but I am fairly sure I am too lazy to sew my own garb, especially without a sewing machine. It would take ages. I don’t care if its perfectly accurate like some Reconstructionists feel. As long as I can honor the Gods from pure intention in my heart, that is what matters.
