A bath connects us to the water element, and with the aid of herbs, crystals, and essential oils we can enhance its power. Having a bath nourishes the whole body, and the special properties of the herbs, crystals, and essential oils used can bring about a positive state of mind, as well as promote health and well-being.
Creating a magical bath with herbs, crystals, and essential oils can be further enhanced with positive visualization. This is when real magic is brought into the bathroom, encouraging relaxation and assisting in the manifestation of your dreams. When you get out of a bath enjoyed in this way, you will feel a lightness of being, as though you are walking on air. Your body will feel slightly tingly, and positive energy will be bouncing around you. The negative energy will spin down the drain when you let the water out.
The magical bath spells that follow use a lot of the old Santería ways and will inspire exploration and provoke laughter. In a magical bath it is important that you wet your hair. And the longer the bath, the better. No soaps or any kind of cosmetic detergents should be used. If you wish, have a full shower and wash your hair before you enjoy your magical bath.
After your bath but before the water is drained, collect everything you have put into the bath, and, if not specified in the spell, dispose of it anywhere except in the garbage bin. Finally, gently pat yourself dry after a magical bath to seal in the magic.
