A bath spell that takes the love that’s all around you and pours it out for you to soak up.
To be done on a Friday
Into a paper coffee filter, place the following:
dried lemon peel
Tie the bundle off with pink embroidery floss, knotting it nine times. Anoint the bundle with an oil that contains at least one of the following:
rose, yarrow, cardamom, strawberry, saffron, sandalwood, vanilla (I used BPAL’s Jezebel). Dedicate it to a love deity/spirit of your choice, or to the greatest good of the universe (if you don’t work with spirits or deities).
Get the water running in the tub, and add some lavender oil and a little splash of vanilla extract. Place the bundle in the tub. You can add some pink, green or blue food coloring to the bath as well, for extra Venus energy.
Enjoy your bath, and observe how the love feels. Let it in, and let it wash away your pain and darkness. You are so loved.
I was more than ever enraptured when I saw her again. Elizabeth was sitting at breakfast, whilst her hair-dresser arranged her hair. She was too beautiful for words, at least I thought so, and indeed the Empress, then in the height of her beauty, was a lovely picture. A négligee of exquisite lace enveloped her slender figure, and her wonderful hair, which I saw for the first time unbound, flowed around her in heavy chestnut waves. Her inscrutable eyes were of a deep amber flecked with gold, and the searching daylight discovered no flaw in her. Elizabeth seemed a daughter of sun and fire as she sat there in the golden glow which intensified her loveliness and her strange ethereal look.
Sisi as described by Marie Larisch in her autobiography “My Past”.
