A Cleansing Ritual


  • 1 tablespoon bicarbonate soda
  • 5 drops essential oil
  • Juice of a lemon
  • 1 teaspoon good oil, such as sweet almond
  • ½ cup sea salt
  • Four candles

Stir the soda, essential oil, lemon juice and oil together and then blend in the salt.

Dissolve in the bath water. Light four candles (colors of your choice) and place at the four corners of the tub.

Step slowly into the bath water, feeling it envelope around you.

Close your eyes.

Visualize yourself laying on the surface of the ocean. There is nothing around you, you are alone and at peace. Feel the warmth of the sun beating down on you.

Say either out loud or quietly to yourself:
“Be Comforted, all is well
Now you are blessed.
You have life to nurture and nurture you.
Be calm.
Be easy.
Be Comforted.
You are blessed."
