Casting Instructions for ‘Bath for Beauty, Love, and Lust (Aphrodite Bath)’

Run hot water, not too hot to burn but hot enough for light steam to rise. While the tub is being filled light your candle and the cinnamon. When I did this I put some some ground cinnamon in a mortar, sprinkled some lavender oil (so it would burn) and it burned like incense. I’m not sure how a cinnamon stick burns (though I head the kind you buy at the grocery smells like plastic when you burn it but I’ve never tried) but you can always grind it or just burn cinnamon incense.Preferably burn candle and cinnamon inside shower but if you don’t have enough ledge around your bathtub, just burn it near the bath. Once bath is filled put in flowers. You can either put them in a sachet or just floating in the water. You you’re using lavender oil, dip the violets in the oil (or sprinkle it) before putting it into the bath. Once you’re in the bath and you’ve relaxed, meditated, connected, or whatever it is that you personally do in a bath, use the rosemary oil on your skin. Say chants if you’d like. Remember to stay mindful of whatever purpose your doing the bath for (attract love, preparing or a sexy night, increase feeling of beauty, etc).
