Spiritual Baths are a real and very specifical and practical side of many Neo African Religions. When I was a young student of Esoteric matters, the use of Water in Occult practices was somewhat limited to holy water blessings and ablutiones from several Grimoires, mostly using the words “Asperges me Domine hyssopo et mundabor et super nivem dealbabor”. So the main ingredient was the herb of st. Jean or hyssopus.
Lately I discovered in Cuba and Brasil that so many ingredients and even different kind of waters could be used, I was shocked about the great ignorance on the subject by Western Magicians that were mostly armchair witches, lost in qabalistic worlds, head spinning and ego trips 😉
Franz Bardon is unique giving water spirits elementals to work with.
Personally I learned from the creole nymphs and Ochun daughters the majiq of the river.
