Let’s chat about Spiritual Baths
There are many intentions that can be put into a bath: Healing, Cleansing, Sweetening, Love, Self Love, Purification, Detox… the list goes on and on. You create your own ritual bath for almost any intention.
You just need an intention, the herbs and oils that would fit that intention, the time to pull it all together, and most importantly… the follow through.
For most Spiritual Baths, you want to start with a good base. This base is something that you can use for any relaxing bath too!
The Base of a Good Bath!
Epsom Salt, Ritual Sea Salt, Dead Sea Salt, or a mix of salts
Other Ritual Products to consider:
Anil ~ Blue (balls, squares, powder), Florida Water, Bay Rum, Cascarilla
Ingredients you might see in recipes:
Baking Soda, White Clay, Oatmeal Powder
Personally, I like to use a mixture of salts. The baths that I sell typically have both Fine Dead Sea Salt and Coarse Ritual Sea Salt. Epsom Salt is a great choice if you have some aches and pains. It contains Magnesium, which is most easily absorbed through the skin when in water. Magnesium is used by your body to help maintain cell integrity. Many believe that Epsom Salts help with detox, inflammation, and a variety of other ailments.
An Energy Clearing Bath ~ Ritual Cleansing Bath is taken to cleanse and clear out unwanted energies. This could be things that you are processing and dealing with from yourself, or they could be attachments you want to release, or energies that you have picked up from other people. Think of it as an immersive way to smudge yourself.
This bath can be done once, but it is sometimes done 3, 5, or 7 days in a row to work on specific issues. If this bath is recommended by a spiritual practitioner, they will typically do ritual work and divination readings to determine how many baths (and the ingredients you need) to work on the issue at hand.
Energy Clearing Bath ideas
Herbs for Energy Clearing:
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, Thyme
Does that sound familiar? LOL
Really… they all work, and you have them in your spice cabinet!
Other Ritual Cleansing Herbs:
Cedar, Fennel, Juniper Berry, Osha Root, Peppermint, Vervain, Yarrow… you can add essential oils here as well.
Soak for 15 to 20 minutes, rinse, and towel dry.
I like to watch the water go down the drain and watch all the negative energy go away.
It is always very important to make sure that whenever you cleanse or clear out unwanted (negative) energies, that you fill up that empty space with desirable (positive) energy. If you just clear out the space and leave that vacuum, it is going to fill up with something… Often that is will just be the stuff you just worked to get rid of… So Fill the Space Yourself! <3
That can be as simple as putting on a nice scented lotion, a dab of amber, using visualization to pull in white light, or whatever techniques that call to you.
These baths are typically done the day after you finish your cleansing bath cycle, but it can also be taken at any time that you need to fill yourself back up with love and light.

Or fill up that same style of bowl and bring it in the shower with you and use it to wash yourself, while you visualize the unwanted energies flowing away from you and down the drain.
I hope that this has helped you to open your mind about ways that you can use a bath to bring yourself back into balance. I have some new baths that I have been working on creating for you, and they will be available soon.
In the meantime…
