Contaminatio Ritualis (KOHN-tah-mee-nah-TSEE-oh ree-too-AL-leese; Lat. "contamination ritual") is the ritual a Hexenbiest who has lost their powers must complete to regain them.
The process starts by removing the still beating heart of another Hexenbiest, which can be done by anyone, but after that, the Hexenbiest must do the rest of the tasks herself. First, they must cut off the hands and feet and pluck out the eyeballs of the dead Hexenbiest. Then, they must take them to a special field, bury everything in a certain place, the last bit buried with their own hands. If they are accepted, all the flowers in the field in a large circle will die, and they must then pick all the dead flowers. After this, the flowers must be placed inside the dead Hexenbiest's body cavity, after which the body must be sewn shut by hand and the thread cut by the Hexenbiest performing the ritual. After a period of several hours, the sewn body cavity must be slit back open, and a red sludge will ooze out. The sludge must be collected in a container and then rubbed onto the stomach of the former Hexenbiest.
If the Hexenbiest trying to regain her powers is pregnant while undergoing the Contaminatio Ritualis, her baby will have special and enhanced abilities due to the tasks its mother completed during her pregnancy.
