How to take a Spiritual Bath?

Spiritual bathing is an ancient part of magical traditions worldwide. Depending on the ingredients, is used to either cleanse away malevolent things or imbue the bather with beneficial things. Taking a spiritual bath is not like taking a regular bath -- there are certain steps that must be followed in order for it to work on a spiritual and vibrational level. This you will also help balance mind and spirit.

Why Use a Spiritual Bath?

Spiritual baths are exactly what they sound like: baths enhanced with spiritual power. They are a way to either infuse every inch of you with magic, or scrub away negative energy, illness, or bad luck. Cleansing baths are powerful tools for ridding you of unwelcome influences and spiritual cleansing, while other baths can help you attract love, money, success, or other blessings.

Preparing for a Bath

First, cleanse your space. Remove clutter, dust, let in fresh air, mop your floors with a cleaning floor wash, call upon your deities or spirit guides, and play music. Pay particular attention to the corners of your home, where dust and stagnant energy tend to collect. Then, take a regular bath or shower. The purpose of a spiritual bath is not only to wash yourself, but also to ensures that you are physically clean before you begin.

Drawing the Bath

Fill the bath with water at a comfortable temperature. While the bath fills, prepare your supplies. This can include setting crystals or candles at the corners of the bath, lighting incense, and even setting up a small altar.

When the tub is full, add the appropriate ingredients. For baths to take away negative energy use our Cleansing Bath or break a run of bad luck, consider using sea salt, and fresh or dried Herbs like Rosemary and Lavender buds. For a bath to bring success, use Ruda Bath or

Rue Water

With the ingredients added, stir the water using either a wand or your dominant hand. (Some people stir clockwise to bring things in, like love or success, and counterclockwise to take things away, like illness or negative energy.) While you do so, speak your intention out loud, or petition a deity or spirit for help. Visualize the bath filling with golden light, until you feel it cannot hold any more energy.

As you soak in the water, know that the bath is cleansing you, purifying you, and bringing you your desire. If you have a spiritual soap, like Reuter Soap wash yourself. Do not use shampoo or conventional soap, however - remember, physical cleansing is not the goal here. Relax and meditate, releasing any negative thoughts that intrude on your peace. When you feel the bath has done its job, step out and allow yourself to dry.

If You Don’t Have A Bathtub

Not having a tub does not mean you cannot have a spiritual bath. Instead of adding herbs, salt, or other ingredients to a bathtub, add them to a basin, stir, and empower them as you would a bath. Pour the water over you starting from the crown of your head and working downward. When you are through, dispose of the water.

Combining herbs, salt, oils, and stones in a bath is a spiritual practice that has existed as long as bathing and healing springs have existed. With the right technique and the appropriate ingredients, you can create a spiritual bath that will help you achieve your goals.
