A friend is muttering about her place being beset by Demons. What do I do?
I give her a couple of beginning magical texts that I found helpful, and some advice on how to construct some kind of warding ritual by cobbling ideas together from the internet. Or just steal one she likes but think hard about who she's asking to help before committing to that...
@anthracite Or y'know also maybe put out small treats or sacrifices for befriending. It ain't easy for them either in this world.

How much does she know about who they are and why they're there?
If it's aaaaactually the fair folk, I find that bribes/gifts can help (given with an open hand, not begrudgingly-- "this is for you; please leave mine alone"-- and recognition that the place may be theirs as much as hers. We get a lot of that, and I think they pester our household bc our ancestors were colonizers.)
If it's a spontaneous-ish coalescence of bad energy taking form, keeping orgonite in locations around the place, especially in trouble spots or near electronics, can help. Inconvenient though it is, anything on wireless is going to collect bad that may need to be cleaned out; keeping crystal points with the orgonite helps restructure it and keep things clear.
If it's ghosts, elementals, or other things that just got confused and subsequently scared/hostile, talking to them may be enough.
(Regardless of what it is, it's also important to check whether it's the house, the land, or her presence collecting them.)
If it is demons, however, I would *absolutely* recommend the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram. Which admittedly I recommend for everything... But really, it's so powerful it can be a panacea of sorts. And it's suitable for performing by a beginner. If she does it daily, I'd think it should clear up the space she does it in as well as anything hanging around her. Three times a day really helped me a lot-- I had some very weird detox symptoms for a couple months, and I wasn't even aware of any particular problems beforehand-- because it's just so powerful, though basic. And my room has gotten absolutely amazing.
It may be worth finding out their identity to see if there are incenses they don't like, things they won't wanna hang around. Also, if they attempt to trick her into thinking they're something else, such entities can only sign their own name, not a false one.

@mysidia god i should really get around to doing my own lazy chaosite banishing in the bedroom on a regular basis again. Been slack on it since the boyfriend moved in.
@anthracite Ahaha, sorry! Didn't mean to give unwanted advice. ^^; I was just like "oh! I know how to do this thing!"
@mysidia oh, no worries, you're not the only one who mis-read my ambiguous-in-hindsight comment!
