Hi Magic Makers! Now, I know a lot of you take out time to bathe your physical body on a daily basis, but does your spiritual body need cleansing? Well, it absolutely does! Just like your physical body needs a bath to stay clean, your spiritual body needs a bath to remain cleansed, too. 

What is a Bath Ritual?

A bath ritual is a special kind of cleansing that involves the use of water infused with a combination of herbs, flowers, and sacred smoke from sage, copal, palo santo, almost any herb of your choice, or incense to revitalize and purify your spiritual body. 

A bath ritual is an ancient spiritual practice. Whether you're bathing in it, being cleansed by it, or entering a body of water, it serves as a portal to other worlds and has facilitated pivotal life transitions. It can also provide deep spiritual purification when your body is immersed in it.

Apart from its purification purposes, a bath ritual can also provide healing and protection. Many people believe that designing a bath ritual is very complicated. Still, the truth is that you can easily create a bath ritual for purification, healing, and protection all by yourself. Let’s find out how!

Bath Ritual Meditation

Meditation is an effective stress reliever and a habit that can lead to increased stress resilience and inner peace. While this may not come as a surprise, most people are aware meditation can be beneficial but still struggle to make it a daily habit because life gets in the way!

One effective way to reap the benefits of meditation is by carrying out a bath ritual meditation. 

How Do You Carry Out a Bath Ritual Meditation?

To effectively carry out a bath ritual meditation, you need to follow the following steps: 

Create Time: 
Make sure you have at least 15 minutes set aside where you won't be interrupted. That means adding a few minutes to your schedule, setting your phone to voicemail, and telling your family not to bother you unless it's an emergency.
Bathe with Aromatherapy Products
While running the bath, you might want to incorporate some of the benefits of aromatherapy by using bubble bath or bath oils scented with lavender (which has been shown to be relaxing), peppermint (if you want to feel more alert), or another scent that you enjoy (studies show that subjectively pleasing scents can also help with stress relief).
Go in and Unwind: 
Allow your belly to rise and fall with each breath, making your breathing slower and deeper (instead of your shoulders or chest). This type of breathing is more natural, and it can help calm your body's natural stress response if it's still active from the day before.
Pay Attention to Your Feelings

Now, just concentrate on the physical sensations in your body—the warmth of the water on your skin, the pressure of the tub against your back—and when your mind wanders away from the present moment and those physical sensations, notice where your attention has wandered and bring it back to the physical sensations in your body without judgment.

Allow your attention to rest in the present moment, and when you notice that your mind has wandered, gently bring it back.

If you find yourself thinking about the past, the future, or any other internal dialogue, gently bring your attention back to the present moment. Continue for a few minutes, and you should feel instantly soothed and relaxed.

Relaxing Bath Rituals

Thinking of your bath as a time to relax your mind and body lends significance and weight to what might otherwise be considered a frivolous indulgence. Choose the frequency that seems most beneficial to you—at least once a week—and set aside at least 30 minutes for your bath; if you have chronically dry skin, cut that time in half. Request that family members respect your privacy (i.e., no interruptions) and remind yourself that you are deserving of this gift.

To set the mood for a relaxing bath ritual, you’ll need the following items:

  1. Crystals
  2. Essential Oils 
  3. Candles
  4. Herbal Teas
  5. Journal

With these items in place, all you need to do is set the mood, quiet your mind, and start your relaxing bath! 

Bath Ritual for the Full Moon

People have tracked the moon's cycles for various reasons throughout history, from tracking fertility to monitoring health and behavior. This knowledge can also be applied to self-care! 

The full moon has long been thought to have an effect on human health, so it's only natural to take extra precautions. A relaxing, luxurious bath can be an important monthly ritual to rejuvenate yourself!

How to Create Your Full Moon Bath Ritual

  1. Keep your environment clean and tidy. 
  2. Create the right atmosphere for a relaxing, ritualistic experience with a scented candle, crystals, or ambient music 
  3. Invest in a few high-quality spa items to give yourself the feeling of being pampered: essential oils to scent your bathwater and soothe your skin, bath bombs, a plush robe, or a fluffy new towel just for the occasion are all possibilities.
  4. It’s important to remember that the full moon bath ritual isn’t just about giving your body a treat, but your mind, too, so be sure to practice mindfulness.
