When I’m not traveling, I like to take time on Sunday’s for some much needed self-care and introspection. Yes, this includes a bath…but not the one filled with bubbles from some toxic concotion picked up at your local drugstore. This is a therapeutic and healing bath on many levels.
If you need some inspiration or simply have no idea as to where to start, here is a glimpse into my “Goddess Ritual”.
I’ve been drawn to Sandalwood lately, the oil of Sacred Devotion. I am going to just go with it. With time, you will discover your intuition. If you listen, it will tell you exactly what you need. You might think this is so “woo woo”. It’s okay, I did to not too long ago.
For today’s Goddess Bath this is what I’m feeling called to use:
Sandalwood, the oil of Sacred Devotion
Bergamot, the oil of Self-Acceptance
Black Pepper, the oil of Unmasking
Geranium, the oil of Love & Trust
Lavender, the oil of Communication & Calm
Myrrh, the oil of Mother Earth
Rose, the oil of Divine Love
Vetiver, the oil of Centering & Descent
and finally some Yang-Ylang, the oil of the inner child.
I suggest you invest in Pure, Therapeutic Essential Oils. After much research and experimentation, I only use doTERRA’s oils. It is said that over 80% of Essential Oils on the market are Synthetic, despite what the label says.
Goddess Bath Recipe:
Fill the bath with warm water.
Add 2 cups Epsom Salt
Add 1 cup Himalayan Pink Salt, optional
When the bath is half full add 2 drops each of the Essential Oils listed above
*doTERRA’s Rose Oil comes in a roller bottle diluted with Fractionated Coconut Oil. I just remove to cap and use a dropper. Add 6-8 drops of Rose Oil.
Add 2 tsp Fractionated Coconut Oil or Almond Oil
While the bath is filling I like to collect the crystals calling to me and scatter them around the bath tub, turn on a few Organic, Beeswax Candles and soak away.
I suggest keeping a journal nearby to write down anything that comes up.
You’d be surprised at what transpires when you take a moment to reconnect with yourself.
