Cleanse and Protect Spiritual Spell Bath

▶️ ‘Cleanse & Protect’: A Pre-Spell Spiritual Bath

Cleansing and purifying baths are typically used to rid the bather of negative influences and evil spirits. Although it’s not always necessary, it’s a good idea to perform a ritual bath before casting spells, especially if you are not feeling 100% present or in a clear state of mind.

This pre-spell cleansing bath can be done at any time and will set the perfect mood for any kind of spellwork, but particularly on those where we need to open a spiritual road, such as unblocking a path to success, money, love, or luck. 💫

Why this Spell Works

  • Spiritual baths can offer an extra layer of protection when we feel weak or vulnerable. Cleansing baths are ideal to strengthen our spiritual defense barriers.
  • Bay leaves have been used for centuries to promote protection and success in Magical workings. Watch a video lesson on the Green Uses of Bay leaves.
  • Rosemary is a purifying agent that will remove negativity and toxins from your skin. Learn more about Rosemary in Green Witchcraft.
  • Rue is a sacred cleansing herb that has been used for banishing and warding. The Magical properties of rue can keep diseases and other negative influences away.🌿
