Paulette Kouffman Sherman. Llewellyn, $17.99 trade paper (312p) ISBN 978-0-7387-4602-9
Fans of Sherman (Dating from the Inside Out) are in for an impressive treat with her collection of 52 fun and sacred baths to improve every aspect of your physical and spiritual life. This cookbook of sacred baths, such as "Love Yourself Madly," "Clear Negative Thinking," and "Great Body-Image," will delight anyone who finds a soak in the tub revitalizing. Sherman recommends making goal-setting more powerful by connecting it to a spiritual bath. The first chapter of the book focuses on the history of ritual bathing and the magical healing powers of water. The second part contains the recipes, which include specific candles, oils, crystals, and much more, topped off with an explanation of the bathing elements. Though the tools needed to stage these spiritual baths are specific, numerous, and unlikely to already be in your home, they can easily be purchased. Readers in search of a one- or two-step process may find Sherman's sacred baths too advanced, as they require meticulous preparations, numerous steps, and extensive shopping, but for some, the result will prove well worth the effort.
