Bath Rituals and Recipes to Renew Your Energy for 2021
We all know it is a much-needed renewal, after a year like 2020
New Year’s Negativity-Cleansing Bath
This ritual is said to remove all negativity from the past year and start the new year off refreshed and on a positive note.
- Epsom or Sea Salt
- Sage or Frankincense essential oil
- 1 white candle
Clean your bathtub and take your regular day-to-day shower. Remember that this bath is more about energy than hygiene, so you want to be clean before starting.
Fill your bathtub with warm water and add a cup of Epsom or Sea salt, stirring it into the bathwater.
Add a few drops of your chosen essential oil to the water. Sage is highly cleansing and ideal for banishing negativity, whilst Frankincense is perfect for getting in touch with your inner self and setting goals.
Get into the water and allow your mind to clear and focus on joyous and happy memories, visualize growth and positivity. Prepare yourself for better days by thinking about your goals and aspirations.
Light the white candle, which represents purity, new beginnings, and a clearing of your path ahead.
Soak in the bath for as long as you feel comfortable.
As you exit the bath, envision your struggles and fears and all the negativity you want to leave in the water behind you.
Watch the water drain out, visualizing all the negativity of the past draining out and invite in all the positive energy of change and fresh starts.
