You can ask my husband, I spend WAAAY too long in the bathtub. Water is just so soothing for me.
Maybe it's because I'm a very emotional person and water is the emotional element. Hmm..
Any way, I've shared one of my spells with you that involves bath magic. Now, I want to share some more tips and tricks for bath-related magical goodness that I've found over the years.
And away we go!
If you want a powerful spell in general, you can fine tune each and every individual part of what goes into it. So, for bath magic, let's break everything down so you can create something magnificent!
Depending on your intent, you could make your spell for specific kinds of water and temperature.
Purified water could be for extreme cleansing. You could boost that even more by making moon water, sun water, charged water, etc.
The murkiness of the water could come into play if you want to make something nasty or angry. Just don't bathe in something gross, okay? Maybe do a relaxing mud bath or use a dark-colored bath bomb for murkiness.
You could easily make some homemade bath oils or soap for relaxation.
One thing you can definitely try is my Relaxation Bath Soak recipe that can come out more oily if you want it to.
Some other things you can add are olive oil, coconut oil, lemongrass oil, or clary sage oil.
Even essential oils count! Throw in some rosemary, peppermint, lavender, or tree tree oil to give yourself the ultimate, cleansing spa treatment.
Huzzah for tea! Tis a glorious thing!
You can totally add some tea bags to your bath, or boil the bags and let the water cool before you add it in with the rest of your magical concoction.
If you're not the tea-bath-type, even simply having a cup of your favorite brew to sip while your toes soak can really add to the atmosphere and help you wind down.
Putting Epsom salts in your bath not only increases your magnesium levels, which help keep you balanced and healthy overall, but can really be that extra kick of calm at the end of the day.
If you ever have an injury or just plain sore feet, put a cup or two of Epsom salts in the bath. You'll feel LOADS better. My favorite kind are the lavender-mixed ones from Wally World in the big bag, only ten bucks. Woo!
Even if you just close your eyes, let the water flow through your hair, and take a couple of deep breaths, you can make any bath magically relaxing. Just don't fall asleep! (That's happened to me maybe once or five times...)
