It can be sprinkled on counters, tables, or cash registers to bring in more business, or added to floor washes for good fortune. Many hoodoo practitioners keep a Rose of Jericho plant in water by their front door, with a couple of coins added to the water. This water is used to wash the front door, to help keep money flowing into the home. Its water is a gift, filled with potent spiritual energy. Save the water, and use it on yourself, your belongings, and your home to bring in prosperity, keep away evil and envy, and protect you from misfortune.
Because it is a holy plant, Rose of Jericho can be used to protect, too. Use it to wash protective jewelry, amulet or medals. Dip your fingers into the water, and draw a cross on the back of your front door to keep evil out. The water can also be used as Holy Water, or as a base for making spiritual waters.

Then allow to dehydrate completely (about 2 days), the Jericho will close its branches and curl back into a ball. Then you can re-use it again and again.
