Moon Phase: 4th Quarter
dried lavender, sage, and hyssop; about 1 tsp. each
patchouli or rose essential oil a tbsp. sea salt
Fill the bathtub with hot water making sure the water is mildly u allfortable, but not too hot.
Before you get in, hold your hands above the water and recite 3 times:
"This is Cerridwens Cauldron, the mists of change arise"
Add the sea salt. Hold the lavender in your hand and say:
"lavender for love"
then sprinkle it in the water.
Do the same for the sage and hyssop:
"sage for strength, hyssop for healing"
Add a few drops of the essential oil.
With your hand, athame', wand etc. Stir the water widdershins (counter clock-wise) to
create a downward spiral drawing energy. As you stir the water recite:
"Flowers and water keep sickness at bay;
The downward spiral takes it away."
Use your intuition to determine how long you should stir and chant...
Once in the tub, relax and visualize all the negativity leaving your body through your pores.
With each breath, you exhale it from your body.
Continue this for as long as you wish, but it should be at least 30 minutes.
As an added boost, use a white candle to draw in positive energy and to purify,
and a black candle to absorb the negativity. It also creates a softer light that makes
it easier to relax. You can also burn your favorite incense to help you relax.
