Why a purification bath with herbs is needed?
The purification bath is a quite simple and effective practice, it is useful to both purge any negative energies and to dissolve any accumulations of energy residues that begin to weigh on us by preventing and hindering the cyclical regeneration of our energy.
We can use it even after the most complex rituals, to make sure we leave our external and internal energy spaces clear of any lingering energies.
Before we continue
Practicing magic takes skill and patience and isn’t recommended to do it alone in most cases. I provide these “do it yourself” articles for educational purposes, but it is strongly recommended that you consult an experienced spell caster such as myself and allow me to do the work for you.
This way you know it’s being done by someone experienced and knowledgeable and I’m also always here to answer questions about your casting and provide follow-up at no additional charge.
Protection Spell Casting
Protection Spell Casting creates a protective shield around you. It protects you from evil and negative energy, for a period between 3 to 6 months. It’s an instant spell, you don’t need to wait days for it to become active.
I have helped hundreds of clients over the years, and I’d love to work with you as well.
Best herbs for protection baths
Laurel or Laurus has magickal properties related to a purification theme, in fact for spells that use magick herbs, it is used to eliminate negative energies from work environments and to promote strength. Therefore, it is to be counted among the magickal herbs of protection and strengthening.
If we think of a laurel wreath as a sign of prestige and strength, then laurel could be used to achieve knowledge and luck in your career or in your studies.
Magick properties of hypericum have been known since ancient times, as the herb drives out devils. St. John’s wort can also be used to keep away spirits and demons.
Among the spells with magickal herbs, rosemary is among those magickal plants that take away melancholy, but not only for that purpose but to keep away curses. A branch of this magickal plant is placed under the bed or under the pillow.
As a protective herb, on the other hand, it is slowly burned in the place where the spell is going to be used. The magickal properties of rosemary are truly countless and can be used at your discretion.
How to prepare a protection bath with herbs?
There are several recipes for this practice, each person usually develops their own recipes over time, by tweaking original ones until they find one most suited to their personal characteristics and needs. In general, however, the preparation method does not vary that much.
Here is what you need:
- A mortar and pestle
- A piece of cloth (preferably cotton or linen, so that the texture of the fabric is not excessively dense)
The aim is to create a bag that you will soak in the hot water of the tub, or that you can use as a sponge in the hot shower.
My favorite recipes with herbs for protection bath
Rosemary, Sage and Lavender
This is the simplest recipe, these three spices can often be found in the home. Sage is an excellent cure-all when it comes to purification. Rosemary helps to purify ourselves and provides us with a little protection, encouraging our resistance for energy storage.
Finally, lavender, which with its sweet aroma helps us to ensure that our energy recycling is oriented towards the reception of purely positive energy, thus helping us to keep negativity away.
Sage, Laurel and Mallow
We have talked about the wonderful properties of sage. Laurel has strong healing properties, so it will help heal our spirit and let go of whatever prevents our energy recycling. Mallow is an extraordinary plant, it not only strengthens our defenses and our protections but also helps remove any type of negative energy that is stuck on us.
Rosemary, Chamomile and Parsley
We have already talked about rosemary and the healing properties of chamomile are well known. Chamomile also helps us to relax and makes energy recycling easier. Parsley strengthens our defenses and has important purifying powers.
These are three mixtures that I regularly use, they are simple recipes since they are composed of herbs that you may find in your pantry.
How to do a protection bath with herbs
The ideal situation would be to dedicate yourself to a purification bath at least three times during the cycle shown below.
Day 1 – Take a purification bath/shower on the day you start the purification cycle, if possible, as soon as you wake up in the morning. It will be like doing the first skimming of any energy residues that may have stuck to you and you will give a strong first input to the purification process.
Day 4 – Repeat the Day 1 process on the 4th day of the purification cycle, you are now in the middle of your path to finally clean up the energy space on your body and prepare to welcome new and clean energy.
Day 7 – Finally, repeat the process on day 7, do this before going to sleep, at the end of the purification cycle, so it will open the doors of your sacred temple with new clean energy and begin the regeneration process.
This practice will help you rid yourself of negative or excess energy residues and giving you a boost to your energy regeneration cycle. This will remove anything that is weighing you down and will make room for new clean energy.
