More Witch crafted Witch approved crafts for the holiday season. Magickal Bath Salts

 Good Evening,

Today we'll be discussing some additional craft items you might wish to make for gift giving this holiday season.  An earlier discussion last week discussed making amulets for protection for the home.  Here is the finished product, that I made along with my students in class. Each got to make their own and bring them home and I thought to share what mine looks like with you.

Today's discussion is about making Magical Bath Salts.  A hand made craft that you can personalize with your own energy and the essential oils of your choosing. For a basic bath salt base you'll need the following:

2 cups Epsom salts
2 cups baking soda
2 cups sea salt

This alone makes a hydrating, skin softening bath salts when added by the tablespoon to the bath water.  You may use this if you don't desire any fragrance or color in your product. But for those who like a bit of excitement in your life, as I do, you may add essential oils, in this case by the teaspoon, and food coloring to give the finished product a pleasant appearance.

For the following magickal purposes you may add the following oils to your bath salts base mixture:

For loving energies:

1 teaspoon rose oil
1/2 teaspoon lavender oil
1/2 teaspoon basil oil

For money and financial prosperity add:

1 teaspoon patchouli oil
1/2 teaspoon vetivert oil
1/2 teaspoon clove oil

Perhaps some tranquility is needed this hectic time of year? Try this combinaton that is sure to have you caalm and peaceful before too long:

1 teaspoon lavender oil
1/2 teaspoon chamomile oil
1/2 teaspoon jasmine oil
1 teaspoon tea tree oil

Of course the colors are magickal goal specific, for instance loving bath salts would be pink and require perhaps a half teaspoon of coloring, whereas use the same amount of green and purple (pre-mix the red and blue separately before adding to bath salts base) respectively for money and tranquility.

The magick is applied while putting this mixture together. And using a wooden spoon and stirring deosil (clockwise) throughout the entire mixing process while incanting an incantation to help empower the bath salts is key!! Not sure what to say? No worries, here let me help. If you wish to create your own rhyming incantation, please do so. After all this is your magickal recipe!

Love Bath salts incantation:

"Loving energies come to me,
bring my lover/love to me
As I will it one times three
an' it harm none so mote it be!"

For Money Bath Salts you may like this:

"Money, wealth, prosperity
I call you now, come unto me
as I will it, So Mote it be!"

For that much needed tranquility this works well:

"Peace and calm I call for quiet
to still the hectic, to soothe the riot
May peace and serenity come to me
an' it harm none so mote it be!"

After stirring, mixing, chanting and strong visualization of the magickal goal, you may place in pretty jars, bags or whatever you choose and gift this to someone on your holiday shopping list.

 The amount of bath salts to use is generally a tablespoon or two placed under warm or hot running water for a moderate bad, and a bit more for a full sized bath. 

* A note regarding visualization when making products intended to be given away.  Of course you can't visualize yourself as the gift is intended for another, and NO, you can't envision them in your visual as that could be considered manipulation. Instead I like to see the colors of the magickal goal I'm creating the product for as if they were glitter. I see red, pink and silver glitter sprinkling down from the heavens and falling into the bath salts as I mix them. (I wouldn't put real glitter in simply because it could get into all sorts of places when taking a bath and that might not be a good thing.) But visualize glitter sprinkling down as you mix and chant. Whatever color you use for the mixture can be your visualization 'glitter'.  For a white mixture envision gold and silver glitter colors.

For those who take showers and not baths this mixture can be added into foot baths or in a bowl of water that you sit on your nightstand to help bring in the desired magickal goal. If placing next to your bed, be sure to put your fingers into the water a couple of times a day and swirl the water deosil again while saying the incantation and this will work as if you had taken a bath. 

Peace and Happiness
