It’s very much inspired by my Venus/Aphrodite Love Bath
I LOVE working with roses and for this ritual I went a bit rose-mad
- I lit a rose-scented candle which I surrounded with rose quartz crystals (also amazonite which I’d be using later in my spellwork)
- Decorated the shower area with roses
- Used rose scented body wash
- Rose water to wash face
The main part was the rose salt ‘sand’ and body scrub for the ritual:
I’ve used a LOT of salt but my gosh it was worth it!
Combine pink himalayan salt with epsom salt, a few drops of rose essential oil and rose petals (you can also add rose quartz and leave the mixture to charge in the moonlight overnight). Dampen with a couple of tablespoons of moon water and stir in your intentions to make a sandy texture. Sprinkle this in the bottom of your shower and as you step in allow the salt to absorb any negative energies out through your feet.
You can use the same mixture as a body scrub (for a better consistency add some argan oil).
Start from the top of your body and work your way down, again using the salt to cleanse any negative feelings or energy down and out through your feet. Then watch as it all dissolves and washes away down the drain leaving you in your beautiful rosy paradise
please don’t use the scrub on sensitive, cracked or broken skin
I’ve found this salt shower method to be a great alternative to my usual pre-spell ritual baths. From the moment I stepped in I was visualising being in a magical rose garden, connecting with the elements and preparing my mind and body for spellwork.
I felt completely cleansed of outside influences of the day and filled with loving energy.
