Self-Love Bath Ritual
Like all of my rituals, feel free to adapt any of this to your personal path or in any way that your intuition calls you.
Ingredients: Bath Mixture
- 1/2 Cup of Epsom Salt
- 1/4 of dried Rose Petals
- 2 Tbsp of Lavender buds
- 5 drops of Lavender Oil
- 5 drops of Vanilla Extract
- 3 drops of Rose Oil
Other Ritual Items
- Pink or White Candles
- Journal and pen
- Any gemstones or crystals that exude love.
Combine all ingredients (except for the candle) together and mix really well. Toss into your bath water and stir clockwise really well.
As you are stirring, think and say an affirmation or intention of self-love over the water such as:
“I Choose to Feel Good and To Love Myself Today.”
Then, light your candles and arrange any crystals that you might want.
As you step into your bath, imagine yourself crossing a threshold. As you pass by any candles, imagine the light and fire cleansing you and preparing you for the hardy growth of Summer.
When you take your bath, cleanse yourself of any negativity. As you clean and scrub your skin show yourself with gratitude for what your body can do.
Too often it is easy to criticize ourselves when Beltane should be a time of thanks and of the celebration of life and growth.
