Dear Friends,

After a long, hard day of work there is nothing quite like relaxing in a luxurious bath. Many people seem to think of bathing purely as a daily hygiene routine that must be performed, without little though of how therapuetic it can be. And though some of you may be surprised to hear it, bathing can be magickal too!

Bathing is an activity that is used in a number of different spells. From cleansing spells to spells that attract love to you, using your bathtub as a magickal tool is quite common. As water is a very powerful element, it makes sense that using a bathtub that allows you to immerse yourself fully in water is a good way to perform magick. And utilizing your bathtub for magick consists of more than just spells as well. A bathtub can be a wonderful place for meditation and channeling, as it helps you to fully relax and open your mind. Even just sitting in a nice warm bathtub with a few herbs added to it and candles burning can be magickal without the use of spells or meditation, and it helps your body and mind to unwind and relax creating a more peaceful you.

I’m going to share just a few rituals that you can perform using your bathtub as a magickal tool. You will quickly be able to see how bathing can be beneficial to your magick, and how easy it will be to experiment on your own and incorporate this daily activity into your craft.

Pre-Ritual Bathing

Cleansing before performing a ritual is an excellent way to cleanse away negativity that affect how well your spell or ritual works. To perform a simple pre-ritual bath, create a sachet for your bath that contains lavender, basil, borage and rue. For best results, use a piece of muslin cloth to make the sachet so that the herbs can fully infuse into the water. Fill the tub with warm water, placing the sachet inside the tub while it is filling. While in the tub, you can also burn candles that work for cleansing energy and strengthening your inner self.

For Protection

In situations where you feel you will need protection, steep a teaspoon of fresh basil in one cup of boiling water. Let the basil steep for 5-10 minutes, than strain the herbs from the water. Pour the water into your bathwater, and rest in the water for 20 minutes allowing the essence of the herb to coat you to provide protection from negative energy.

For Healing From Pain

Place a cub of dead sea salts, a handful of dried lavender and a few drops of lavender essential oil into a warm bathtub. Submerse your body in the tub. Close your eyes and envision the dark pain energy leaving your body, and being replaced by the cool color of lavender for healing. You can also repeat the following words while you are bathing to help take the pain away faster.

Aches and Pains be free from me,
As I wish so mote it be.
Leave my body, do not return,
Calm and peace is what I yearn.
Remove dark forces from my sight,
And bathe me in a healing light.

An Energy Cleansing

This particular cleansing actually uses the shower, but is extremely effective as other bathing spells. To start, light a few white candles in your bathroom to provide clean, positive energy. You can also light an invigoration and cleansing incense or use an aromatherapy lamp. Using warm water, stand in the shower allowing the water to run over your entire body. Visualize it rinsing away any negative energy that is clinging to you, and washing away down the drain.

You see, bathing can be a truly wonderful and magickal experience. Your bathtub, or your shower, can be a very magickal tool. I encourage you all to discover the many ways of using this powerful tool to help make your magick stronger, or even just help yourself to relax at the end of a hard day!

Brightest Blessings,
