The ritual of bath

IMG_4764.JPG

The benefits you receive from immersing your body into water is by far one of the truest forms of healing you can experience.

It has a way of cleansing us from the outside in. Energetically healing wounds and releasing physical tensions we may gather and carry with us throughout our day.

Creating space for the ritual of bath has saved me and I believe it can do the same for you.

This practice holds a source of power you can turn to when you are feeling low, in need of balance or simply to relax after a long day and have moments to yourself.

It is here answers may arise, clarity is invited into the well of your heart and balance is restored.

OUR SKIN

is our largest organ and it is our honor as humans to nourish it.  Adding Epsom salts or magnesium flakes to your bath fills the skin with vitamins and minerals.  Essential oils may be added to invoke a feeling, mood or help stimulate and heal us physically. Clay can be incredibly helpful in pulling out toxins and heavy metals from the body as well. Below you will find a bath blend that embodies all of these components.

With regular practice this will bring harmony to your body and mind, relax sore and tired muscles - leaving you revitalized and nourished on both a cellular and energetic level. This new found brightness will assist you in taking on whatever life may throw you, with more grace and clarity.

A sacred act we can all indulge in.  If you are someone who does not revel in a hot (or cold) salt bath, I recommend a salt and herbal foot soak or purchasing magnesium oil to incorporate these minerals into your life and body. My favorite time to apply magnesium oil is on my arms and legs before bed for an ultra restful sleep.

ENJOY A RICH MINERAL BATH

Infusion/Recipe:

1 - 2 cups Epsom Salts (essential) 

ΒΌ cup Bentonite Clay (optional)

Rose Petals (optional)

Lavender (optional)

1-10 drops Essential Oils (optional)

Process:

In a bowl mix Epsom salts and bentonite clay.  Add rose petals, lavender (if desired). Mix well to ensure clay is blended in with the Epsom salts as this allows the clay to fully absorb into the water and not clump and float on top.  You may add a few drops of your favorite essential oils in the bath water, or blend with a carrier oil like sweet almond oil for an added moisturizer. Pour entire mixture into bath water. 

Enjoy.
