Baths are often used in herb magic, for they are an easy way to spread an herb's power over the entire body. There are two methods; one, make a sachet (use about one-half to one cup of the appropriate enchanted herb) of cheesecloth. Drop this into the warm bath water. A better method entails the preparation of an infusion (see above). Add the strained liquid to the tub. Essential oils are also sometimes added to baths. Just a few drops are all that is necessary for most oils; too much may irritate the skin. (See Tables & Appendices for oils and their magical powers.) -cunningham
