2021 is almost at its end! Did you accomplish your resolutions for this year? If yes, then yey! Good for you! If not, well there is always next year. And to ease up your mind, not everyone really finishes or accomplish their new year’s resolution. In short not everyone gets what they want. Whether you achieved your goals this 2021 or not, this year has been so exhausting in oh so many levels. So, it is better to leave every bad thing that happened behind. Of course, the best way to do that is through cleansing. Not just physical cleansing but also spiritual cleansing. A lot of people have claimed to have a spiritual awakening in the past few years and they claimed that spiritual cleansing or bathing not just rinse away the negativity in their life but it also recharges their energy. Some claim they feel at ease after a spiritual bath. Before giving out a few ingredients/ recipes for spiritual bathing, let us find out what is the difference of spiritual bathing and regular bathing. regular baths or showers used for physical hygiene do produce a sense of relaxation and promote overall well-being; even without the added intention. Spiritual baths however are much different. They are a ritual, intended for spiritual hygiene, to cleanse your personal energy body, and revitalize your subtle senses. The end result of a spiritual bath is refreshing, rejuvenating, and a deeper sense of inner peace. Set aside 20-60 minutes of uninterrupted time to devote to this practice. Now that you know what is the difference, time to create your own spiritual bath. Most spiritual just requires meditation and spiritual intention. But for added effect, there a few ingredients you need to add in your bath.
Himalayan salt bath. The purpose of a ritual bath is to cleanse yourself physically as well as spiritually, so it is not the same as the normal bath you take. It is recommended that you shower before immersing into the tub in order to cleanse yourself of shampoo or soap. Add 2-4 salt rocks to your bathtub and fill it with a few inches of water so that the salt dissolves. Then fill your entire tub with water. You can add a few drops of essential oil for fragrance as it will have a more soothing effect. To achieve Himalayan salt spiritual cleansing, submerge yourself in the bath as much as you can for about 20-30 minutes. You can also have water to drink and some candles around as an option for a more luxurious spiritual experience. Remember not to rinse yourself after the detox bath and let the salt dry on its own or gently pat it dry. To achieve best results, rest for about 20 minutes after the bath as the salt water baths are strong. Use this saltwater bath recipe to bath as often as you want but twice or thrice every month is enough. Although Himalayan salt water bath spiritual benefits can be achieved at any time of the month, some people synchronize their baths with the lunar cycle. It is considered that the healing effect of salt bath is at its maximum during the full moon with optimal mineral absorption. If you can’t spare yourself half an hour or you don’t have a bathtub, you need not worry. A salt foot detox alone would also do the job to considerably relax you. Just get hold of a small tub, add a half cup of Himalayan salt and immerse your feet therein for about 10-15 minutes and you’re good to go!
Spiritual bath herbs. It is a good idea to use herbs for your saltwater bath as adding them according to your need, would increase the glory of your saltwater bath multifold. Herbs are used for the purpose of fragrance while others have some therapeutic implications. Each herb has its own purpose of use. For example, some people like the use of lavenders for bathing because of its pleasant aroma while others prefer rosemary or chamomile. Likewise, Lavender and Chamomile are ideal for relieving stress and Bleo Blanco for promoting tranquility. Other herbs are known to be beneficial for bone health and are especially used in the first bath for postpartum mothers.
