this is for you
You gently lower your tired body into a porcelain tub; letting your mind and body slowly relax and unwind as you become enveloped in the comforting, warm water. You let go of the stress from the day, your body releases the pent up and stored tension, you are taking time for you. This alone is a mighty healing act, but there are ways to take you deeper into your world of rest, peace, comfort, and utter stillness.
Increase the Magic in Your Bath Time Ritual
Depending on the feel you wish to accomplish, there are various things you can add to your bath. Whether you want something detoxing, moisturizing, calming, soothing, the list is endless. Listen to your body and heart and see what it wants. You can add one or a combination of the following items to create your dream bath.
- carrier oils
- essential oils
- powdered milk
- himalayan salts
Here’s two blends I’m currently enjoying:
Heaven on Earth Bath
- Slices from various citrus (lime, lemon, orange)
- Fresh/Dried Eucalyptus
- Powdered Milk
- 10 drops Lavender Essential Oil
Release and Detox Bath
- 1 large himalayan salt block
- 1 TBS coconut oil
- 10 drops Patchouli Essential Oil
I hope this inspires you to take the time for yourself to make yourself feel special and worthy of magic. You work so hard and have so much to worry about, let this one act of self honoring be something you prioritize. If not a magical bath, what are other ways you practice self care? How you do take care of yourself in ways other than eating and sleeping?
