Black Woman Hoodoo Practitioner Root WomanSPIRITUAL BATHS

Spiritual baths are vitally important to clear out the negative energy that you acquire during the day. Since everybody has a field of energy, a bath is a good way to cleanse and strengthen our aura. In Brazil, the herb rosemary is used for such purpose; blended or mashed up completely, rosemary is applied all over the entire body. Spiritual baths are excellent, sometimes the elder of a tradition will prescribe a herbal bath according to the problem or situation and what needs to be done.

Another excellent bathing product, consecrated (blessed) black soap is very helpful as well in cleansing baths. Black Soap, also known as African Black Soap (Anago Soap, Alata Simena,or Ose Dudu), has long been used to heal problem skin. Black soap is made from the ash of locally harvested plants and barks such a plantain, cocoa pods, palm tree leaves, and shea tree bark. The healing properties of black soap make this an essential item, as its regular use will wash away any negative energy that may have been picked up in the course of daily activities.

White baths (ones that contain evaporated milk or coconut milk) are recommended to cool down your ori. Before praying or calling up your ori, it is important to smudge your home. Smudging is also necessary when moving to a new home, apartment, house to clear the energy that was there before.

Spiritual baths are different from aromatherapy and other non-consecrated herbal baths. By non-consecrated I am saying that there were no ancient words of power, ritual or other energy placed upon them. For example, special or traditional prayers. This also includes items that we individually empower, which are good, powerful and useful but not on the same scope.

On the topic of Ori cleansing, which is also called rogation, Ibori or simply "head" cleansing I would suggest that people pay place close attention to what and how they perform their own cleansings. A few tips will make for a pleasant experience. Do the cleansing in the evening, wrap your head with the "cooling agents" still on your head and go to sleep. in the morning discard the contents in a paper bag away from your home, including your own trash.

Try pieces of cotton balls, or any pure form of cotton, shea butter, palm oil, honey, coconut shavings, coconut water, milk, and regular filtered/bottled water. Obviously enough to cover the crown "chakra", lets say a good silver dollar or two in diameter. Wrap your head in white cloth only. Wear white clothes to bed. Dont substitute the color white for khaki, off white, tan, etc. Wait until you have what you need to do the process correctly.

Pray for clear head, open road to your destiny, improved intelligence, spiritual enlightenment, peace of mind, victory over obstacles and people that purposefully act as obstacles etc.
