Spell A Day
Spell Date: Sunday, May 27, 2001
For self-healing in general, and for a head cold in particular, mix eucalyptus leaves, peppermint, thyme, and rose petals in Epsom salts and wrap in cheesecloth. Tie up the ends tightly with cord or ribbon, and wrap yourself in a warm robe. Light a candle in an aromatherapy burner with a little water and several drops of eucalyptus oil in the top. Place it very near your bathtub. Draw a steaming bath, hotter than you can immediately enter. Call upon the goddesses of the sea—Mary, Yemaya, Isis—to heal you, and toss the cheesecloth sachet into the hot water. Inhale the eucalyptus oil scent deeply. Test the water, disrobe, and ease yourself in. Soak in the steam and relax. Run more hot water as needed. After your bath, wrap up warmly again, add oil to your aromatherapy burner and continue to inhale the eucalyptus-scented moist air as you rest.
