Witches’ Spell: Ritual Cleansing Bath

The purpose of a ritual cleansing bath is to prepare you, body, mind, and soul for ritual or spell work. This is a sacred event, which reaches beyond the physical, to cleanse your whole self.

First, you will need to take a nice warm shower. Shampoo your hair naturally, scrub your body vigorously, and rinse, thoroughly. This will allow your pores to open and allow you to remove the residue of the world from your skin.

Afterward, unless you have a separate bath and shower, you will need to clean the tub for its next use. Do not use heavy cleaning chemicals; you can use a paste of vinegar, baking soda with just a few drops of blue Dawn dishwashing detergent added in, to cleanse away the grime. Let it sit and soak while you prepare the room for the ritual bath.

Make certain there is no clutter in the room, light a few white candles, while calling on your preferred deity (deities) to attend and witness you consecrating yourself for the ritual or spell to come. If you have access to fresh flowers, scatter bouquets around the room. Their scents will provide aesthetic comfort to your senses.

When the room is prepared, rinse the tub thoroughly, and begin to fill it with lukewarm water. This water is prepared as close to body temperature as possible to simulate the water of your birth. Add in one-half cup Epsom salt, one-quarter cup baking soda and, I suggest, one ounce of professionally created ritual cleansing bath oil. Our coven has its own blend, but there are many blends available for sale, online and in local occult stores.

Sit in the tub and allow it to finish filling to the maximum safe level for your tub. Once it has reached this level, turn off the taps and sit back in the water.

Call upon the name(s) of the deity (deities) with whom you will be working. Ask them to witness your cleansing as you cup your hands together and lift water to pour over your head. Allow it to cascade down your head and neck to sluice over your body. Repeat this action three times.

Leave the bath and allow your body to air dry. Do not use a towel to dry away the water, but allow it to soak into and dry upon your skin. You may wrap your hair in a towel if it is long and will drip a great deal, but do not rub the water from your hair. Once your body is dry and your hair no longer drips, you may choose to remain skyclad or dress for the ceremony you have prepared.

  2. With havin so much written content do you ever run into
    any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has
    a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but
    it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my
    authorization. Do you know any ways to help prevent content
    from being ripped off? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    • Well, Kathleen, I don’t put anything on the web that I cannot afford to have stolen or plagiarized, as it is too prevalent in today’s society for some people to steal others’ content and claim it as their own. Since I am sharing my information specifically so that is may be used by those who need it, if other’s steal it and post it, at least it is going to have a wider chance of getting into the hands of those who need it.
