How to Take a Spiritual Cleansing Bath

You will need:

-Water, a few cups.  Traditionally, workers used rain water, river water, or another type of "natural" water.  You can use tap water, and it's OK, but I have had wonderful results using rain water or spring water too.

-Herbs or minerals or liquids to put in the water to create your spiritual bath.  You want an odd number of ingredients, as few as 3 and as many as 13.  Here are some suggestions:

For uncrossing/cleansing:  Strong black coffee, salt, lemon juice, Lemon Balm herb, ammonia, Hyssop herb, Rue herb

For good luck: Salt, Cinnamon, Sugar, High John the Conqueror root, Hoyt's Cologne, Blueing balls or liquid, Rose petals

For money drawing: Cinnamon, Sugar, Thyme herb, High John the Conqueror, Nutmeg herb, Irish Moss herb

Next, pick your ingredients for the spiritual bath.  Let's say you were going to do a money drawing bath.  Put water in a pot on the stove to boil.  You could take Cinnamon chips, some Nutmeg and Thyme and mix them together.  About 1 teaspoon of each herb is enough for a spiritual bath for one person. 

Mix the ingredients together and *pray*.  Tell the herbs what you want them to do for you.  Describe your need for money and ask that all your requests be granted in God's name, Amen.  Pray from your heart.

When the water gets to a boil, you add your herb mixture and stir, then take the pot off the heat.  I like to put my herbs in a tea ball so they aren't floating all over, but you could also add the herbs loosely and strain them out when the bath is done.

Let the mixture steep; I time it for an odd number of minutes, such as 7, 9 or 11.  When the time is up, strain out the herbs and take the herb bath to your bathroom

Run a tub of warm water and put in the stopper.  Add your herb bath to the water and pray your intention as you mix it all up.  Undress and get in the tub.

Using a bowl or pot, scoop the water up and pour it over your head to get yourself completely wet.  Now, since this is a money-drawing bath, once you're completely wet you want to start rubbing the bath water UP your body, from toes to head.  You're PULLING the energy of money towards you. 

As you do this, pray.  Traditionally, people pray the 23rd Psalm since it is considered the luckiest Psalm.  After you're done reciting the Psalm, state your petition out loud again and pray that it be granted.

Step out of the tub.  You should let yourself air-dry (don't towel yourself off).  If you have long hair, you can wrap it up in a towel.  As you air-dry, keep praying for what you want.  Scoop up a small amount of your used bathwater and set it aside.  Drain the tub.

When you're all dry, dress your body in an appropriate conjure oil depending on your condition.  In this case, try an Attraction or Money Drawing oil.  You dab some on the soles of your feet going from toes to heel (be careful not to slip on the floor!!), and all your pulse points going up your body (behind knees, over your heart, both wrists, your neck, and the top of your head).

Dress yourself in fresh clean clothes (not the ones you wore yesterday to work).  Take your used bathwater that you saved outside and throw it a)towards the East, so the Sun can increase your work or b) at a crossroads.  Walk away and don't look back.  All done!

NOTE: Some workers take all spiritual baths just before dawn.  You can do that if it feels right to you, but another way to work is "by the clock".  Let's say you're taking a ritual bath to remove a jinx or curse.  You can get everything ready and start taking the bath at 8:20AM, because the clock hands are going DOWN (and therefore removing bad conditions).  Then, as the clock hands are going UP (from 8:30 AM to 9:00 in this example)  you're drying off, praying and anointing yourself from toes to head with an appropriate oil to give you luck and success.
