Bath Magic



During the coldest part of the winter, my thoughts often turn to taking a hot soaking bath in the evenings.... as I'm sure a lot of you enjoy.....so why not mix a little magic with your baths?


IRISH HEALING WATERS SPELL

Take equal parts of lavender, violet, and rosemary. Empower them, and then boil them in a pot with about a quart of water over medium heat.

When the water is richly colored and the herbs are scenting your kitchen, drain
The water off into a jar. A plain coffee filter works great for this.

Place the jar in sunlight for an entire day to absorb the radiant energies of the sun.

It's best to do this on a Wednesday to add the healing powers of mercury to the spell

Just before sundown fetch the jar and hold it firmly between your hands Just below your naval.

Feel your desire to be well filling the jar and with your minds eye see it glowing brightly as the sun.

Chant these words until you have filled the jar with as much energy as it will hold.

By the herb and by the sun
Wellness and I are now as one
Strengthening energies now are merged.
Baneful energies now be purged


Anoint spots where illness lurks or on your belly if you are unsure where the source of discomfort lies.

Or pour contents into bath water


MAGIC BATH FOR PROTECTION AND PURIFICATION

Steep a teaspoon of basil in a cup of boiling water, and strain out the herb.
Add it to you bath water for a protective and cleansing influence.
It is particularly useful to clean off the feelings left by contact with those who are negative or controlling.


MAGICK LAVENDER BATH

This spell will refresh and cleanse you.

Blend, in a muslin bag, a teaspoon each of lavender flowers, chamomile flowers,
and dried crushed rosemary. Hang the sachet under the faucet, and draw your bath
water, allowing it to pour down through the herbs.

Add a half cup of lemon juice to the bath.

When you settle into the tub, lean back, relax, and take three deep breaths.
Close your eyes and focus on the excess tension and stress in your body.
Feel the herbs and lemon draw it out of your muscles and mind.

Thoroughly clean your tub when you are done to remove any residue
of negative energy from the bath water.
