Bath Book Page
Ritual Baths and Bathing are amongst
some of the most important, but far too often overlooked, parts of
Magickal work. Bathing can be not only a way to get physically clean but
can also be a spiritually cleansing and centering activity that grounds
us and prepares us for our ritual acts. Before stepping into a sacred
space, Witches should really take a spiritually cleansing Ritual Bath
and then either dress in ritual clothing or step naked into the sacred
space. Many other traditions also hold that a Ritual Bath can help end
difficult, unfavorable, or even cursed situations and can help clear
chakras and magical blockages. Conjure folk in Hoodoo also will use
Magickal Bath Crystals not only for the cleansing of their bodies but
also to help cleanse their homes and workspaces.
Ritual purification is common among
many magickal traditions and the act of bathing can become a ritual in
itself. Ritual Baths are associated with the element of Water and help
cleanse us and restore our balance and harmony with the natural world
before we set out to use our will and intent in our rites, rituals, and
ceremonies. Ritual Baths can also incorporate the use of candles, herbs,
incenses, oils and, of course, Bath Crystals.
Types of Baths
Ritual Baths combine elements of
African, Native American, and European magickal, religious, and ritual
traditions as well as the plant and herbal lore of original peoples. In
general Ritual Baths come in two forms Herbal Baths and Mineral Baths
(Bath Crystals). The first Ritual Baths and Cleansings used pure water,
water from fresh running river sources, or the ocean, and salt,
minerals, herbs, roots, and bark.
Herbal baths are often used to aid
against sickness and such bathes are found across the world and in
nearly all magickal traditions. These sorts of Ritual Baths are made up
or herbs, flowers, roots, bark and other plant parts and occasionally
have essential oils added to them as well. This is really one of the
great unifying acts between us all and gives testament to our
interconnectedness as people living on Gaia and using the gift of her
Mineral Baths and Bath Crystals have
an old history as well but have really grown in prominence over the last
two to three hundred years along with the manufacture of modern bathing
and cleaning supplies. These sorts of Ritual Baths generally consist of
minerals such as Epsom salts, salt, alum, and other naturally occurring
Finally we come to the use of Bath
Crystals not for Ritual Bathing but for cleansing the home and ritual
space. This tradition comes down to us from the old time conjure workers
in hoodoo and here we find the use of Bath and Floor Wash Crystals to
help magickally remove, clear away, or draw in specific circumstances.
Using these techniques we need not simply cleanse an area physically but
can also by the use of our intent and specific Floor Washes, alter and
produce more exact magickal situations in that area. This way we can
help broken hearts, bring peace to a home, cast off ill intents of
others, change or draw luck and money to ourselves, and so much more.
Thus we get to enjoy the magickal benefits and have wonderfully clean
and ready homes and ritual spaces.
