And Last But Not Least, A Few Goodies To Pamper Yourself With….

the

Even the busiest of witches deserves a little pampering now and again. Take a moment out of your busy schedule to try a few of these goodies out. Enjoy!

 

~Harmonious Milk Bath~

2 cups dry milk powder

1/8 teaspoon fragrance oil of your choice

Mix together all ingredients…well.

Add ½ cup of mixture to hot bath water.

 

~Make Your Skin Soft Bath~  

Add ¼ cup of Apple Cider Vinegar to a bath. Use this in place of store bought bubble bath, harsh oils and other chemicals that can cause urinary tract problems and yeast infections.

 

~Honey Bath~  

*Author’s Note: I am not fond of honey in the bath and have never used this recipe, but would be remiss if I didn’t add it, for those who do like honey and wish to try their hand at using it

Add ¼ cup or so of honey to your bath. Remember that honey is sticky! If you feel the need to wash off afterward, don’t feel badly. Simply use your bag of soap scraps for bathing!

 

~A Relaxing Bath~  

½ cup fresh or ¼ cup dried herbs of your choice

½ cup fresh or ¼ cup dried chamomile tea (simply add the tea bag to the bigger bag!)

Add the fresh or dried herbs to the bag and close snugly. Add to bathwater and allow it to steep for at least 15 minutes. Take this time to relax and enjoy the scents that will surround you. If you’d like, use the bag of herbs as a scented washcloth!

 

Flower Bath/Herb Bath  

No need for a muslin bag or other bag, just make sure that you are prepared to clean up if you use these oh-so relaxing ways, to refresh your body and spirit. Throw a hand full of your favorite flowers or herbs, in your bathtub and soak until your heart is content.

Remember to make certain they are pure, and not chemically treated! The following are always good: chamomile, lavender, rose, daisy, and dandelion, just to name a few. Don’t want to waste the flowers or herbs, after you have used them? Easy! Just strain the bath water with a piece of fabric as it drains and then dry them and use the herbs/flowers in potpourri!

A Cleansing Ritual

A CLEANSING RITUAL

Items You Will Need:

1 tablespoon bicarbonate soda
5 drops essential oil juice of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon good oil, such as sweet almond
½ cup sea salt

Stir the soda, essential oil, lemon juice and oil together and then blend in the salt. Dissolve in the bath water. Light 4 candles (colors of your choice) and place at the 4 corners of the tub. Step slowly into the bath water, feeling it envelope around you. Close your eyes.
Visualize yourself laying on the surface of the ocean. There is nothing around you, you are alone and at peace. Feel the warmth of the sun beating down on you. Say either out loud or quietly to yourself:

Be Comforted, All is well Now you are blessed.
You have life to nurture and nurture you.
Be calm. Be easy. Be Comforted. You are blessed.
