You've seen the pretty baths all over Pinterest. It's time to take a pretty bath and take care of yourself, girl. It's more than a pretty bath, it actually has healing effects!
Woman in Wellness & Recovery, we love diving deep into traditional healing practices used by our ancient ancestors.
“The healing powers of herb-infused waters have been celebrated for thousands of years, dating back to the ancient Egyptians where Cleopatra was said to bathe in rose petals."
In modern times, we are busy, we keep so busy that we forget about self-care. Self-care is more important than ever. Self-care is more than just getting our nails done, our hair done and taking care of our outward appearance. Although of course, we want to take care of our outward appearance, and that is important but taking the time to work on our energy, our inner selves.
Here are a couple of ways to up your bathing experience and elevate your mental health:
1. SET YOUR INTENTION
Setting your intention for your bath is easy. Tap into what you need the most from your bath and let it's healing go to work. Are you needing to relax your mind and body? Are you needing to let go of negative energy? Getting into the mindset to heal and work on what you need is step 1. Become really intention about these baths and see the difference.
"The practice of a herbal bath is not only aesthetically pleasing but also rejuvenating of the mind, body and spirit."
2. GET YOUR HERBS READY
