Looking for a boost to your magical routine? Look no further than your bathroom and create a new ritual by taking a magical bath.
We bathe in order to keep our bodies clean, but did you know baths can also be used to cleanse ourselves spiritually? Not only that, but they can be used to help us to achieve our goals, including the goals of attracting more money and love into our lives.
Magical baths take advantage of the fact that water is naturally spiritual and cleansing. Have you ever spent time near water such as a lake or the ocean and come away feeling refreshed and rejuvenated? If so you know that water can be a powerful vehicle for spiritual growth.
Tools for drawing a magical bath
A ritual that’s often associated with witchcraft, magical bathing involves the use of special herbs, oils and salts in one’s bath water in order to bring about a certain outcome. For example, you may use a magical bath to give you insight into a problem that you have. Or you may use a magical bath to cast a spell of protection or promote special healing within your body.
One way to create a magical bath is to add a drop or two of essential oils into your bath water. For example:

Salts can also be helpful agents for creating a magical bath. You may be familiar with the practice of putting Epsom Salts in bath water to soothe sore muscles. Other salts can provide healing energy such as Pink Himalayan Salt and Sea Salt.
Setting the mood for a magical bath
I’m all about intention when it comes to performing any type of ritual, and yes, magical baths are rituals. One way to get in the right head space to treat a magical bath with the reverence it deserves is to set the mood.
One way to do that is to place candles around the bathtub. Candle magic, itself, is a powerful way to set intentions and attract desired circumstances into your life. By placing candles around the bathtub, you can benefit from the power candle magic and magical bathing. You may even gain some insight into how your ritual is going by noticing the messages in the candle flames surrounding your bathtub.
Another way to set the mood and give your ritual more power is to use crystals. I don’t recommend putting crystals in your bath water unless you are very knowledgeable about them because some crystals can disintegrate in water and some can be toxic to your body. However, consider placing certain crystals around the bathtub — particularly crystals that attract what you are using the magical bath to attract.
For example, if you are using the magical bath to attract money, you might put a citrine crystal beside the tub. Likewise, if you are using a magical bath to attract love, you might put rose quartz in the bathroom with you.
Magical baths can also be used to cleanse your aura so it’s a good idea to incorporate them into your routine whether you are trying to attract a particular outcome or not. They can also be used to combat negative energy. You can read about how magical baths can help protect you from negative energy here.
