I have the digital version of the book and I use it as a reference or starting point for inspiration. There are lots of Low Magic (or sympathetic Magic) rituals. It’s a compilation of folk magic spells from different cultures.

My advice with everything spells-related is always be willing to change any ritual or tool as needed be!

I’m about ten books behind. But that’s reading for fun books too. Amazon keeps on sending me good deals and I can’t say no. LOL. I’m thankful @Trey recommended this book, I pushed it up on my list.

If anything it should give us some ideas of what to do for spells. Then we can write our own. :grin:

I’m looking forward to writing my own spells or rituals. I really like a bath ritual before doing any spellwork that day or even a crystal meditation.

@krissie117 Due to physical reasons I don’t dare get in the tub, but I did find some nice sage soap so I can shower with it before doing any rituals. That should count, right?

I have the same kind of limitations, so all I have is a walk in shower with a built in seat. I improvise all of the baths. I use a pot and a scoop to pour the water over me after I have shampooed and washed.

That absolutely counts, @kasie! Using sage soap is a great and creative way to get the magickal and cleansing properties of the herb :soap::herb: Ritual baths and showers have the same purpose, and can be equally cleansing! :sparkles: There was a topic a while back about how to adjust the elements of a bath ritual into a shower ritual, with some very creative ideas! If you’re interested it is: Bath Improvisation :shower:

Best of luck to everyone with their baths, spells, rituals, and witchy reading! :books::sparkling_heart:

That might work. Thanks for the idea. Now to get the potion into the bathroom without swamping myself. LOL.

Thanks, @TheTravelWitch! I’m glad it counts. LOL. I don’t know if I can do that bath improvisation without spilling everything. I’m not all that graceful on my feet. And the sage soap smells so nice. But I may try the improvisation one day, just to see if I can do it. We’ll see. Thank you so much for the link to it.

@kasie I hope it works out for you, the bath improvisation has been wonderful for me. I am still looking for some eucalyptus to hang from my shower head. I think that would be wonderful when I’m feeling under the weather.

@krissie117 I hope it does too. We’ll see like I said I have problems with balance so I’m not sure about carrying a tub of water into the bathroom.

I think Wal-mart sells eucalyptus back in its floral department. I’m not sure, it’s been a while since I’ve been in that part of Wally World.
