I touched on how I came out of the broom closet last year and wanted to create a little space here where I can share some of the rituals I do. Sharing is all part of the craft so being able to give you recipes, share with you posts that you may be able to read into or take something from, well that makes what I do even more worthwhile.
Witch is a word that has been twisted and made ‘wicked’ by the movie industry. Since a teen I have loved anything to do with crystals and intuition. Creating my own ‘spells’ or incantations while cooking and creating. It’s something that has always been there and boy am I bringing it out to the forefront now. Society seems to be a little more accepting of things other that what were once considered ‘the norm’ and people don’t seem to flinch as much as they use to when I mentioned being the W word!
When I know I need a little extra something or I am starting to come down with a bug I step up and try to stop it before it really starts. If I have a tickle in my throat, heavy head and aches there is only one thing for it, a healing milk bath and good book. Sit back and let it work its magick! I have only included the ingredients for the bath, what you place around the sides of the bath is completely up to you. I tend to use rose quartz, amethyst and smokey quartz. It really depends on what you are trying to achieve.
People will happily go buy a bottle that says it will make you relax but roll their eyes if you make your soak from scratch. I have given up trying to figure out why people will spend a fortune on bottles of expensive bubble bath etc from stores yet laugh at you making your own soaks. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good Oilatum bath or Chanel scented bathe but don’t look down on those who know what works when you need it…
For this particular milk bath you can either pop all of the ingredients into a muslin pouch and hang under the tap while running the bath, or sprinkle liberally in the bath and just soak. I guess it all depends on how you feel about the clean up afterwards. I may be a witch but there is no miraculous cleaning spell – believe me I have tried!
You will need:
1 cup corn flour
2 cups powdered milk
Add to bath and soak for as long as you like.
Let me know if you try this and keep an eye out for lots more bathing, cooking and lifestyle rituals/spells and work coming soon.
