Sea Beats is now on vacation until mid-march. I’ve packed my herbs and crystals and psychedelic creatures away. It’s always a sad thing for me to close my shop up, but this time I’m quite excited because I have so many new ideas that I think you’ll QUITE like!
"Sea Beats is currently in the process of a great move to the pacific northwest! We will be back in the middle of March with new cosmic adornments, witchy brews, herbalist remedies, and guides to achieve inner bliss! STAY TUNED!”
“When the earth is ravaged and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds, and who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again. They will be known as the warriors of the Rainbow.”—
Each bath mixture may be prepared in advance and saved until needed if kept in an airtight jar.
Once you’ve assembled all ingredients, add them to your mixing bowl. Mingle the herbs with your fingers, pouring your power into them and visualizing your magical goal. When mixed, place about a handful into the center of a large square cheesecloth. Tie up the ends and add this to your bath. If you don’t have any cheesecloth, simply use an old washcloth.
Using the Sachets
This is simple. Fill the clean tub with warm water. Place the sachet in the tub and let it steep until the water is colored and scented.
If you don’t have a bathtub, or you simply prefer showers, make up a sachet in a washcloth and scrub your body with this after your normal shower, just before toweling.
A third method of utilizing the sachets is a bit more complicated. Heat two cups water until boiling. Pour this over one or two sachets in a heat-proof container. Cover and let steep 10 to 13 minutes. Remove the sachets, squeeze out the last drops of scented water in them, and pour the infusion into the bath.
