Caution: Essential oils may cause skin irritation, at the very least. Some essential oils have adverse side effects on various body systems and all should be avoided while pregnant. Please consult your physician before using any essential oils on yourself if you have any known physiological disorder, and perform a skin patch test to see if you have an adverse skin reaction before use. Remember to always dilute your essential oils with a carrier oil. 

Oils you should avoid that are known to cause skin irritation, but not limited to: basil, oregano, thyme, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, black pepper, and bay.

Bath magick! So many scents, herbs and colors 💕

Bath magick is a seriously underrated type of witchcraft. Each scent, herb, and color has its own meaning, and it’s a great way to low key throw some magick into your life.

½ cup baking soda
¼ cup citric acid (canning aisle in Walmart, above the jars)
¼ cup cornstarch
¼-½ cup Epsom salt (I love the milk and honey)
2 tsp essential oils
Herbs of your choice
2 tsp almond oil (or any other carrier oil)
Food coloring

I will pack it into my containers and let it sit uncovered for the night, then crush it up if it clumps in the morning. Only a couple tbsp to turn your bath into spell work. Even the candles you light will have an impact on the spell.
Happy crafting, witches!
