A Clove Bath for Protection:
Ground Cloves (Eugenia aromatica) may be used as a protection bath. They act to protect you from any negative influences sent either consciously or sub-consciously by others.
Before you attend a meeting or interact with people with whom you are likely to have verbal or psychic conflict, a clove bath is recommended.
1. Pour 2 cups of boiling water over ½ teaspoon of ground cloves.
2. Allow the mixture to steep until it reaches room temperature, and add it to a tub of bath water.
3. Stay in the tub seven or eight minutes, immerse seven times.
4. Pray for protection from all negative influences.
5. Air dry yourself to maintain the protective influence of the bath.
