Spiritual Bath Instructions

How to Take our Spiritual Bath’s?

Spiritual bathing is an ancient part of magical traditions worldwide. No matter what tradition you follow, and depending on the ingredients, the Spiritual Bath is used to either cleanse away bad energies or attract the good things that benefit our lives. 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.

Why Use a Spiritual Bath?

Spiritual baths are exactly what they sound like: baths are enhanced with spiritual power to assist us with our daily life. 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, while other baths can help you attract love, money, success, or other blessings.

What to do to Prepare for a Bath?

First, cleanse your bathroom space to remove all clutter, dust, or dirt. 

Light a white candle to call upon your deities or spirit guides. This can include setting crystals or candles at the corners of the bath, lighting incense, and even setting up a small altar. Then, take a regular bath or shower before so your physically clean before you begin. 

How to Draw your Bath?

Fill the bath with water at a comfortable temperature. When tub is full, add the appropriate Oshun Squared Bath. With the ingredients added, stir the water with your dominant hand. 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.

Bathing 101

When the ingredients are added, the bath is empowered, and the time feels right, enter the bath. Ensure that the water comes in contact with your entire body. Cup it in your hands and pour it over your head, working down toward your feet.

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, 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 it to dry on your body.  

NOTE: We recommend dressing in white or light colored clothing after every bath. 

How to Dispose Bathwater?

After a spiritual bath, it is good to trash all remaining ingredients. 

What do you Do if you Don't Have a Bathtub?

Not having a tub does not mean you cannot take a spiritual bath. Instead of bathing in a tub, you can stand in the basin, pour the water over you starting from the crown of your head and working downward. When you are through, dispose of the water.
