Spiritual-Bath Recipe For January's New Moon in Capricorn


  • Garnet, Tiger's eye, malachite crystals
  • Rosemary, tulsi or holy basil, and ginseng herbs
  • Coriander, eucalyptus, and lemongrass essential oils
  • Red candle
  • Sea salt
  • Florida Water
  • Rue Water
  • Sage
  • Palo santo
  • Pansies or African violet flowers


  1. It's the start of a new year so take care of cleaning your space properly before beginning your spiritual work. You can incorporate ingredients from your spiritual bath to physically clean your space. For example, add a few splashes of Florida Water to your mop water to add an extra layer of fresh energy.
  2. Now, light some sage and allow the smoke to waft throughout your space. Watch as the smoke dances around the room and thank it for its cleansing properties. Do the same with some palo santo. Don't forget to allow the smoke to circle you as you pray, sing, and say works for gratitude.
  3. Begin filling your tub with warm water and add one cup of sea salt. Mix it in with your hands until it dissolves. Move in any way your body is calling you to.
  4. Add three splashes of Florida Water, several drops of your choice of essential oil, and one quick splash of rue water, which is great for cleansing negative and stale energy. Mix in with your hands and take deep inhales of the fragrance filling the space.
  5. Add a couple of handfuls of herbs and mix them into your bath water.
  6. Finally, cover the top of the water with flowers. African violets have a history of being used in healing rituals like baños, so allow this floral companion to do its work, but it is not to be consumed.
  7. Soak for 20 to 40 minutes and emerge feeling brand new. Listen to your body. If you want to sleep, go rest. If you feel invigourated and want to dance, turn up the music and move.
