To Expel a Life Essence is a spell written by Prue and Phoebe Halliwell and cast along with Piper to expel the Life Essence Terra from the body of Leo Wyatt.


In 2001, a Life Essence named Terra escaped from the Alchemist that created her. However, in order to survive, she needed a host body. After possessing a nearby businessman, Terra transferred her essence to Piper Halliwell, a Charmed One, in order to use the Power of Three to vanquish Kierkan.

When it was discovered that Piper had been possessed, Prue Halliwell killed her sister with a knife. Knowing that she needed a living host body, Terra left Piper's body and entered the body of Leo Wyatt. Prue and Phoebe then offered her a deal; if she brought Piper back to life, she could keep Leo's body or they would trap her back inside the bottle that created her. Terra agreed and resurrected Piper. However, the sisters then double-crossed her and cast the spell. Terra was expelled from his body and died, as she could not survive without a host.[1]
