Free Candle Spells | Cleansing Bath Ritual for the Autumn Season



Cleansing Spell of the Autumn Season


Purpose:  To remove and cleanse yourself and others of the remnants of the Summer. While the long nights and hot temperatures were fun, the time to concentrate on preparing for what’s to come is the focus of this cleansing ritual.



Primary Mixture:

1 cup Dr. Broner’s Liquid Castile Soap in Tea Tree Essence (found in Whole Foods or online)

1 cap (aka cake) Cascarilla, crushed to powder-like consistancy (found in candle shops, botanicas, or online)

1 Cup Epsom Salts with Eucalyptus (found online or Walgreens has a great mixture)

Juice of one lemon


Secondary Mixture:

Brew Hyssop in a pasta or bean pot into a “tea” and let cool to room temperature. Hyssop can be found in natural grocery stores such as Whole Foods or online with various vendors.


How to Do the Bath:


Take all ingredients and place in glass or ceramic bowl. Mix well. It will look a little dry and crumbly but that is ok.
Step naked into shower to get wet, then turn water off. Dip a wash cloth into mix and rub your skin. DO not rub harshly or apply heavy pressure as you are rubbing. Do not use on face and genital areas. Rub mixture over body from top to bottom, all the while imagining that you are sloughing off old skin and old ways. As you do, be thankful for what the recent past has taught you and release all ill will and strife you have for others. Holding on to bitterness will not serve you coming into Winter, when we are to strip away harshness and be thankful for what we have been blessed with.


As this is done, pray the Act of Contrition:

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins because of thy just punishments, but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, who art all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve with the help of Thy grace to sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin. Amen.

Turn on water and rinse and repeat if necessary until you feel refreshed and cleansed.

Then, pour the Hyssop tea over your body and rinse with water until all is removed. Step out of shower, dry off and dress in comfortable clothes. You may feel relaxed and a bit drowsy after this, andit is fine to nap or rest with a cup of tea or other warm beverage at this time until you feel rejuvinated and ready to continue with your day.
