Immerse Yourself in a Chakra Bath. Healing water to me is the ocean, however living in Maryland that is a bit of a challenge to me. So I usually take baths using Epson salt. Bathing in the ocean or a bath of sea salt and baking soda strengthens your second chakra. This sexual chakra governs how you experience pleasure and can be become clouded with issues of guilt and shame. Imagine all guilt and shame dissolving in the water as it restores you to the purity of your true nature. I mean baptism does this, but we all slip once in a while if you are not on a abstinent faze of life. The more you balance the less you slip!!!
Chakra Balancing Baths are a great way to explore the energy centers within you and strengthen your mind-body-spirit connection and because of all the different energy vibrations we encounter, our energy field is constantly readjusting itself to bring our energy back into harmony, but sometimes the negative energies we encounter can linger and accumulate over time and cause our seven chakras to become imbalanced. Water mixed with vibrationally charged herbs and crystals is a great way to cleanse your aura and balance your chakras (the major energy centers of your body). Below is a great step by step guide to chakra cleansing baths.
What's the best bath salts, herbal bath to use?
Everything organic is best for a chakra bath and energy cleansing baths alike. Organic bath salt mixes, preservative free dried herbs and flowers. It's best to pick which herbs, flowers and salts work for your desired bath. Such as dried sage for cleansing the chakras and energy. Pure oils such as cyprus, cedar wood and herbal tea blends such as ginseng/dandelion root. Below, you can find the list of herbs, oils and crystals to best fit each chakra bath.
Himalayan Sea Salt benefits
Sea Salt baths are rejuvenating, detoxing, and relaxing. They are extremely beneficial for cleansing. The saltwater carries the electrical charge of the salt, along with the dissolved minerals. A salt bath helps draw out toxins, deep cleanses the skin, and helps cleanse the body energetically.
Step by Step guide to the best chakra balancing bath!
For beginners, try focusing on one specific chakra at a time.
Add your desired water temperature to your bath while slowly Adding in your healing elements. These can include essential oils, herbs, crystals, or items of the same color associated with the chakra. Add 1 cup of organic Himalayan or Epsom salts to help you relax and support cleansing.
If you are adding oils to your bath, add 8 to 10 drops of the essential oils. Be careful, oils can make the bath slippery!
If you want to add flowers and herbs, try an organic bath mix with added herbs or add in your organic herbs, flowers directly.
Create a calm atmosphere. Color can influence mood so consider dimming the lights to help influence the mood. Candles are great additions to add a calming ambiance chakra bath time too and playing soft music can help you relax.
Meditate. Focus on the chakra. Visualize where it’s located within your own body. See if you can sense it. Bathe it, not only in water and sound, but also your own loving, nurturing energy. Soak for about 15-20 minutes. You can assist the process by relaxing and feeling good about allowing yourself to take this special time just for you. Make an intention to let go of all negativity.
When complete, do not rinse off the minerals from the salt bath, instead pat dry skin.Take as much time as you need. But when you are finished, try to take your time while drying off and resuming your day or evening.Enjoy feeling lighter and more vibrant.
*TIP Take a chakra bath once a week.
