So it took a while for this one but here is another Jenny’s Witchy How-To! Last time was Self Love Rose Soy Milk Tea, check it out HERE!
Based on the voting poll I did a while back on my Twitter, the top requested How-To was for a bath mix! <3
So because things have been crazy & stressful I want to remind everyone that it’s important to take a break from time to time and let go of the things that might be a little too heavy right now. Stop, breathe deep and take a moment to live in the moment & clear your mind! It’s ok to treat yourself, it’s ok to stop and relax!
Before you continue, please be aware of any allergies you might have! Always play it safe and read labels! This is just my personal blend but please feel free to substitute things to suit your needs! If you are unsure of something, a quick google search for alternatives should help! <3
Things You Will Need:
-Epsom Salt: Epsom Salt is great for relaxing muscles and soothing any tension you may be carrying. If you choose to use salt’s that are scented, be aware that the mingling smells combined with the oils and incense might effect the overall scent of your bath! Approx1 cup
-Himalayan Salt: Salt in general is great for cleansing & purification, himalayan salt has the added bonus of self love & positivity! Just a small pile in about the palm of your hand should do.
-Lavender Essential Oil: Much like the rest of the ingredients, you don’t have to use this sent, I say lavender for a couple reasons: it’s a scent that is perfect for calm soothing relaxation, this oil is safe for skin contact, and it’s my preferred scent, hah! Please make sure whatever oil you use is safe for skin! Approx 5 drops.
-Dry Lavender: Now when I say dry lavender, I’m really saying any safe herb or flower you choose, hah! These can be dry or fresh! Again lavender is known for it’s relaxation benefits but feel free to look up herbs online or try some of these other relaxing herbs:
-green tea -mint
-lemon balm -rose
-Small Bag/ Cheesecloth: So this part is optional for anyone who does not want the salts & flowers floating openly in the bath water. You are essentially going to be making a bath teabag using either a small loose fabric bag, cheese cloth or even a coffee filter will work! You are going to be putting everything but the oil in this and tying the top tightly closed so nothing spills out!
-Candles: If you have the counter space (that’s safe for it) I highly recommend candles! Putting out 3-4 small candles always helps me get into a more magical state of mind!
-Incense: If you like, try lighting your fave incense while you soak!
-Crystals: And heck yes you should put out some crystals to help raise your vibration to a positive level! You can have them set out nearby the tub OR if you know they will be ok in salt water you can add them into your bath with you! Remember to look up the properties of crystals before adding them into the water! I personally like to use tumbled amethyst, clear quartz and rose quartz stones which help with clarity of mind, positivity and self love!
-Drinking Water: Yes, drinking water! I always find myself getting dehydrated when I take these baths, not just because it’s hot & steamy but also because of the salts which can dehydrate you! I like to make an ice cold water with cucumber, blueberries and a little lemon!
And lastly, feel free to put your phone somewhere safe and play some meditation music!
Now that you have your items gathered up & you are ready to turn on the bath water take a moment to stop and breathe deeply. Imagine that all the thoughts, feelings and vibrations that are weighing you down or stressing you out are large stones in your arms. They are heavy but they are not serving your highest good. Remind yourself, “I no longer need these and they no longer weigh me down” and visualize yourself letting go of these stones. As you do this breathe deeply exhaling as you let go of the troubles from yesterday. Once you have let go of these troubles remind yourself “I allow myself to relax free of worry and free of fear”
<3 LET’S GET RELAXING! <3
Turn on your meditation music, light your candles and start your incense! Start filling your tub with hot/warm water, if you put your ingredients in a bag submerge and let the bag soak as the bath fills. If you choose to do the ingredients loose; as the bath fills add your salts and oils stirring them into the bath with your hand in a clockwise motion. Once the tub has filled add your crystals and herbs. Imagine that the crystals combined with the salts and herbs have made the water a bright glowing water of positivity and relaxation. As you step into these bright waters imagine it dissolving away any stress, worry, fear, anxiety, anything at all. Breathe deeply and say some positive affirmations! These can be anything from “I wash away the troubles of yesterday” to “I am at peace” or anything in particular that you feel is best for you! Once you have finished, make sure you compost all herbs and never let them go down the drain!
I hope you all enjoyed this relaxing bath & that you are all filled with positive energies as well as being in a calmer state of mind!
My mom is visiting me soon, and she’ll be here on her birthday, so I thought I’d make her something that all mothers need! Something relaxing, mood lifting, and positive with self care involved.
1 cup baking soda
½ cup citric acid
½ cup cornstarch (optional, as I didn’t have this today and didn’t use any)
¼ dry milk (optional, if you don’t want your bath milky, you are free to leave this out)
3 tablespoons of Epsom salts
a handful of dried & crushed orange peel
1 teaspoon of water
3 - 4 teaspoons of coconut oil (or any base oils you have at hand, such as almond oil)
15 - 20 drops of orange essential oil
This made me 1 large, 1 medium, & 1 mini bath bomb. I didn’t have a ritual or chant, I simply had some of my mood boosting crystals & a plant companion to ensure I was putting only positive energy into making these🌿
To make dried & crushed orange peel:
Save the peel from an orange, being sure to remove all fruit from the skin. Lay out to dry, best if it is in the sun. This will take a few days, though I’m sure there are ways to dry in the oven, just be sure to research it before just popping them in to the oven and burning them to a crisp! Once the peels are completely dry, toss the peel into a blender and pulse the blender until the pieces are as small or large as you wish. Store in airtight container.I may make a full tutorial on this if requested, but it’s pretty straight forward.

Summertime always reminds me of love. Some of my favorite romances of my youth were spent pining over certain someones throughout the months of June, July, and August. So, if you are looking to boost your confidence and open yourself up to some of that feel-good, prepare yourself before a night out in this bath!
YOU WILL REQUIRE:
1 cup Epsom Salts
Petals from 1 Rose
2-4 drops Vanilla Fragrance Oil
1. Combine all your ingredients. I actually used a food processor to make sure all of my ingredients were finely cut and mixed. The petals were sliced into beautiful tiny pieces and the salt remained intact. (I would suggest keeping this concoction bottled for up to 6 months before making a new batch.)
2. Prep a warm bath. I drop a couple of scoops in (because I am extra), but for a sufficient bath, I would say 2-4 teaspoons worth of our bath salts.
3. Soak for fifteen minutes. Relax, shut your eyes, and focus on the stream of consciousness that occurs when thinking about love, what you want in a partner, and what qualities you want them to possess. I would also suggest visualizing all the positive aspects you could bring to a potential relationship.
4. When you are ready to get out of the bath, recite the following incantation:
Salt, sweet vanilla, and petals of rose, open my heart to passion’s fervent throws. Allow entry of romance, love divine! May my sweetheart hear this call of mine.
5. Drain the bath and pat dry.
I hope this helps on your journey to love, romance, and passion! Much love!

Write the name of the spell you wish
to remove on your body. If you do not know the name, draw a sigil to represent
it. If you wish to cleanse yourself
completely, as per my Samhain ritual, draw a sigil representing positive magic,
and a sigil representing negative magic. Also draw a sigil representation for
others, and for yourself.
Dissolve Epsom salts in warm bath
water. Step in and soak for a few minutes to soften the ink. Scrub the sigils
off gently, and visualize the energy of the spell(s) melting away with the ink.
This can help with jinxes and hexes,
as well as minor curses (when used in tandem with other measures). This is
quite gentle neutralization, and sometimes more aggressive measures are very
necessary, especially if you need an immediate and permanent fix.

i live in a newly built 1 bedroom 1 bath house in the poor suburbs. i decorate my home with flowers and art, but it’s still nothing compared to all of these grand houses. i paint the exterior a warm drizzled honey yellow; i paint the interior an endless black
At times i am ungrateful . At times i am willing to
burn down my house and move into your apartment.
my body is my home and i want to move out.
my body is my home and i am going bankrupt
my body is my home and i am tearing down the walls, yet hesitant to touch the foundation.
… i got an offer today… for 3x it’s value.
if i sell it today i can afford the shallow empty mansion, but as i walk up to the paved entrance my legs become weak, for no flowers are grown here to support my foundation.
i cannot live here, nor can i renovate, i cannot do anything or else i am not home. at home i belong and cannot change.
