Cold Remedy Spell

Take one cup of the Cold Remedy Infusion and pour into running bath water.
Light a healing candle and place it at the far end of your bathtub. Or whichever one is furthest away from the shower curtain. Put on some inspirational music, turn off the li ghts and get into the bathtub.
While you are soaking, imagine your illness leaving your body and being absorbed by the bath water. Relax and breathe deeply. Do this for about 20 minutes.
Then take a quick shower imagining that if there is any illness left over, it will be washed away. When you are done with your shower, say:
"My illness is gone. I am healthy."
Know this in your heart to be true.

Cold Remedy Infusion

An infusion is a tea. They can be made for drinking, put into baths, used for washing crystal balls, etc. The following infusion is used for drinking, but it can also be added to a bath. See Cold Remedy Spell.
For the following infusion, I use a good amount of herbs. You can omit any of the following herbs from this infusion that you wish. For example, if you don't have these symptoms or are allergic to some of these herbs.
Also, using the following method you will have enough herbs for 4 cups of tea. You can do one of two things. You can make yourself a cup at a time and save the rest of the herbs in a bag or jar. Or, you can use my method.
When I get a cold, the last thing I feel like doing is getting out of bed. It would be nice to have a butler and ring a little bell and be served. But let's face it, this is the 'real' world and we have to do things for ourselves. Even when we are sick. So, I came up with an idea. Make 4 cups of tea, put it in a thermos and place it somewhere close to your bed. Simple, easy, efficient.

Ingredients:

1 tsp. angelica (colds and fevers)
1 tsp. vervain (coughs)
1 tsp. coltsfoot (headaches)
1 tsp. eyebrite (congestion)
1 tsp. passion flower (insomnia)
1 tsp. rose hips (high source of vitamin C)
1 tsp. echinacea (rids the body of bacterial and viral infections)

Preparation:

Enchant the herbs then crush them in mortar. Boil 5 cups of water. Pour water into a large bowl, add herbs and stir well. Steep for an hour, but stir the herbs every 15 minutes. At the end of the hour, strain infusion into a large microwavable container. Microwave infusion until it comes to a boil. Pour into a thermos that holds 4 cups.
Note: You will have to use 5 cups of water to come out with 4 cups as the herbs will absorb 1 cup of water. Also, this tea is a little bitter and medicinal so add a lot of sugar or honey to it.
Attention: In no way am I suggesting that you shouldn't go to a doctor when you are sick. If you are really sick, please, see a doctor and see what he or she has to say about herbal remedies.
