Ok on my other site www.spellcastingnow.com I have received emails from several people asking about stress relief and relaxation. So here is one of my favorite Relaxing spiritual baths recipes that I use on a regular basis.

Items needed for this bath recipe

  • 3 White Candles any kind will work. I prefer to use ones that burn for several hours.
  • Fresh or Dry Lavender flowers (you can buy these in bulk online or at new age and alot of herb shops.
  • Sage either fresh or dry available online or at your local grocery store in the produce section.
  • Chamomile fresh or dried herb. You can find this online or at new age and herb shops.
  • Peppermint Essential Oil or Fresh Peppermint leaves you can find online fresh leaves sometimes at the local supermarket.
  • Coconut essential oil
  • Florida Water Cologne( I use this for everything from cleansing to baths, to floorwashes, to adding to my laundry.

There are 2 ways you can work this bath the preference is yours. You can fill the tub with hot water and toss in the herbs to let them steep if they are dry herbs then add the florida water a couple squirts, with the essential oils add just a couple drops essential oils are very potent and some people may be sensitive to the oils.

Method 2 is with using mainly fresh herbs. Fill a basin or bucket with warm water and toss in the herbs. With your hands work the herbs together, rubbing them between your hands, squeezing out the juices, and breaking the herbs by hand while you pray and ask god and spirit to make the mixture stronger with energy. Once you have completely integrated the mixture into the water ( you will see the water color change and the aroma will be very strong.) Then you can either leave the herbs in if you have a strainer in your tub which i always suggest as the power of the herbs are best when left in the tub.

Pour the mixture into your tub filled with hot water, add in a few squirts of florida water, and a couple drops of each of the essential oils. Light your candles and turn out the lights. You can turn on some soft soothing music if you would like as well.

Soak as long as you can in the hot water, bring a cup or a bowl with you and take the mixture up into the bowl and pour it over your head and cover your whole body with it.  Try to soak at least 15 minutes to 1/2 hour if you can make the water warm enough to last that long.

I do prefer to leave my herbs in my water so i can reach down and grab a bunch in my hands and bring it up to my face and breath in the aroma and let it just relax me. I also rub it on my body including all areas that are in pain and need additional relaxation.

After I am finished I step out of the tub and pat dry and take the candles into what ever room I am going to be in for the remainder of the night to keep the ambiance going.

If you try this bath please comment me and let me know how you felt after it. It has always worked for me and has always been very wonderful.
