Ritual Baths and Bathing are amongst some of the most important, but far too often overlooked, parts of Magickal work. Bathing can be not only a way to get physically clean but can also be a spiritually cleansing and centering activity that grounds us and prepares us for our ritual acts. Before stepping into a sacred space, Witches should really take a spiritually cleansing Ritual Bath and then either dress in ritual clothing or step naked into the sacred space. Many other traditions also hold that a Ritual Bath can help end difficult, unfavorable, or even cursed situations and can help clear chakras and magical blockages. Conjure folk in Hoodoo also will use Magickal Bath Crystals not only for the cleansing of their bodies but also to help cleanse their homes and workspaces.
Ritual purification is common among many magickal traditions and the act of bathing can become a ritual in itself. Ritual Baths are associated with the element of Water and help cleanse us and restore our balance and harmony with the natural world before we set out to use our will and intent in our rites, rituals, and ceremonies. Ritual Baths can also incorporate the use of candles, herbs, incenses, oils and, of course, Bath Crystals.
Types of Baths
Ritual Baths combine elements of African, Native American, and European magickal, religious, and ritual traditions as well as the plant and herbal lore of original peoples. In general Ritual Baths come in two forms Herbal Baths and Mineral Baths (Bath Crystals). The first Ritual Baths and Cleansings used pure water, water from fresh running river sources, or the ocean, and salt, minerals, herbs, roots, and bark.
Herbal baths are often used to aid against sickness and such bathes are found across the world and in nearly all magickal traditions. These sorts of Ritual Baths are made up or herbs, flowers, roots, bark and other plant parts and occasionally have essential oils added to them as well. This is really one of the great unifying acts between us all and gives testament to our interconnectedness as people living on Gaia and using the gift of her sacred waters.
Mineral Baths and Bath Crystals have an old history as well but have really grown in prominence over the last two to three hundred years along with the manufacture of modern bathing and cleaning supplies. These sorts of Ritual Baths generally consist of minerals such as Epsom salts, salt, alum, and other naturally occurring minerals.
Finally we come to the use of Bath Crystals not for Ritual Bathing but for cleansing the home and ritual space. This tradition comes down to us from the old time conjure workers in hoodoo and here we find the use of Bath and Floor Wash Crystals to help magickally remove, clear away, or draw in specific circumstances. Using these techniques we need not simply cleanse an area physically but can also by the use of our intent and specific Floor Washes, alter and produce more exact magickal situations in that area. This way we can help broken hearts, bring peace to a home, cast off ill intents of others, change or draw luck and money to ourselves, and so much more. Thus we get to enjoy the magickal benefits and have wonderfully clean and ready homes and ritual spaces.
