Our ancestors have known something that is called ritual moon bathing. There is a great connected ness to the natural cycles in nature and we are all synced in. Just as the Moon grows outward into the night sky) until it becomes full and then wanes while moving back into itself – so do we. Sometimes she shows up fully, open, bright, reaching out. Other times she covers her face, retreats, falls back, quiets herself.
Women will especially benefit from this practice, as it serves as a helping tool in balancing and healing their menstrual cycle. The Moon is the most feminine planet. It is changeable in the same way as we – ever changing women. What happens during the time right before the New Moon is exactly what happens with us in the second half of our menstrual cycle. And the Full Moon corresponds to the time of ovulation. As the Moon uncovers her face we uncover ours. We get more active, putting things into action. As we come closer to bleeding the natural tendency is to become quieter, retreated. This is the most receptive time of the whole human experience. We are the most open then. Important to be quiet, aware of what kind of energy we draw into ourselves. This is the time for contemplation.
Our ritual bath salts are blended having in mind those two main forces: creative force and tendency to release and discharge.
New moon = retreat, quiet, receptive, open, introspective, clean, potential to clean.
For your sacred bath experience while moon vanes we have blended: pink Himalayan salt, dead sea salt, Adriatic hand harvested sea salt, cinnamon, and mindfully blended essential oils. To add a little bit of plant magic to your bath experience, enjoy dry lavender and calendula flowers.
To use: Add two handfuls of salt mix into your bathtub, fill with warm water and mix until salt crystals dissolve in water. Soak in for 10-15 minutes, or as long as you feel comfortable. To get the most benefit from this ritual, do not use any shampoo or soaps, or wash yourself as usual prior to bath time. Don’t rinse the skin in the shower at the end of the bath, just lightly towel dry to achieve the optimum benefits.
To make your ritual bathing experience even more sacred and spiritual, play with elements: light a few candles (fire), play some relaxing background music (air), add your favorite crystals (earth).
While there are so many benefits to taking salt baths, to be on the safe side, if you are pregnant, have diabetes, low or high blood pressure, heart, kidney, or liver disease, any other circulation problems, recent or current illness or any other health concerns please consult your health professional for advice before bathing in salt water.
