Lustral Baths and Recipes

* Mix equal amounts of each herb with sea salt.

* Bundle it into cheesecloth and fill the tub with scalding water. Get in when the temperature is comfortable.

* When having the bath, try to think of nothing. Empty your thoughts.

* Take a palm full of sea salt and slowly let it run from your hand into the water. As you do, see the union of sky and Earth in your bath.

* Watch the water go down the drain, taking all your problems, worries and stresses with it.

* Infusion: Boil the ingredients over the stove. Allow to cool, strain and set aside for when needed.
