WOTC Extra – Preparing the Ingredients for a Spiritual Bath

Preparing the Ingredients


There are a few rules of thumb to follow when preparing herbs and other ingredients for ritual bathing. First, herbs are never boiled. Rather, they are placed in a bowl and hot water is poured over them. They are allowed to steep for 15 minutes and the water is then strained and then allowed to cool. The cooling down period is when the water becomes “charged” with their respective medicinal powers.

Secondly, roots, nuts, barks and beans are boiled for about 30 minutes in a cast iron pot. Be sure not to use aluminum or metallic pots for this purpose. The wash should be brownish in color.

To prepare flowers and fresh herbs, gently tear, rub in the palms, and place in cool water. While doing this, you should be praying for the desired effect. The herbs and flowers are then strained from the water, which should have a green tint. This wash is referred to as the Green Blood of the Earth, which refreshes and revitalizes all that comes in contact with it.

Let’s Talk Witch – Spiritual Baths



Spiritual or ritual bathing is a good way to cleanse not only your body, but your spiritual body as well. Ritual bathing is recommended whenever you expect to encounter negativity, fight fatigue, depression, anxiety, and fear of any kind. It can also be done following a negative experience to fortify your spirit.

Ritual bathing is done with any number of washes and bath salts made with special herbs and colors specific to the purpose at hand. There are a couple of things that are important to do when preparing a ritual bath. Some of these are necessary; others are optional. Guidelines for ritual bathing are as follows:

1. Always bless the water before getting into the tub. Invoke the loas, goddesses and orishas of the healing waters in a manner that is meaningful to you.

2. As you get into the tub, soak yourself from head to toe while naming your problems.

3. Spend at least 15 minutes soaking in the healing water for a ritual bath. You may meditate, visualize a resolution of your problem, sing, or sit in silence. Do whatever feels comforting to you.

4. As you let the water go down the drain, visualize your problems washing away. With the last drop of water say “Let it be so”.

5. Always clean your tub with saltwater afterwards. Sea salt is best, though regular salt will also do. Also, be sure to clean any objects used in the tub with saltwater.

As part of preparing your ritual bath, you may light your favorite incense and light a candle to make the experience especially comforting and enjoyable.

Always take a soap bath prior to a ritual bath. Never use soap, oils, or anything else. Never stay in a ritual bath longer than 30 minutes and allow your body to air dry to achieve the full effect.

New Moon Psychic Bath

New Moon Psychic Bath


This relaxing bath will help bring out your natural psychic abilities, and connect with the energies of the moon. Try to perform this spell during the phase of the new moon if you can.

Items You Will Need:

  • • 1 cup coarse sea salt
  • • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • • 1/4 cup Vervain
  • • 1/4 cup jasmine flowers
  • • 7 drops cypress oil

In a bowl, mix together everything but the oil. Pour it into a tub full of hot bathwater, then add the drops of oil to the bath too. You can split the mixture in half for 2 baths if you want, just keep the oil separate.

Get in the tub, and just soak. Careful getting in though, the sea salt will be a bit rough under foot. Let your thoughts float and open up your mind to new ideas and experiences. Stay in the bath until the water gets cold.

Yule Soap

Yule Soap

1 cup grated unscented soap

1/4 cup hot water

1 tbsp. apricot oil

1 tbsp. chamomile

1/2 tbsp. rosemary

1/2 tbsp. ginger

6 drops frankincense oil

6 drops myrrh oil

3 drops cinnamon oil

Place grated soap in a heat-proof non-metallic container and add the hot water and apricot oil. Leave until it is cool enough to handle, and then mix together with your hands. If the soap is floating on the water, add more soap. Leave to sit for 10 minutes, mixing occasionally, until the soap is soft and mushy. Once the soap, water, and oil are blended completely, add the dry ingredients. Once the mixture is cool, then add the essential oils (essential oils evaporate quickly in heat). Enough essential oils should be added to overcome the original scent of the soap. Blend thoroughly and then divide the soap mixture into four to six pieces. Squeeze the soaps, removing as much excess water as possible into the shape you desire, and tie in a cheesecloth. Hang in a warm, dry place until the soap is completely hard and dry.

Recipe adapted from Kate West’s The Real Witches’ Kitchen Sabbat Soap recipe.
