Chamomile Calming Bath Ritual
- 1 cup of dried chamomile flowers
- A handful of Epsom salt
- A few drops of lavender essential oil
- Candle and lighter/matches
- Bathrobe or cozy clothes to wear after the bath
Start by lighting a candle and setting the intention for your bath ritual. Take a few deep breaths and let go of any stress or tension you may be carrying.
While the water is running, add a cup of dried chamomile flowers and a handful of Epsom salt to your bath. These will help to infuse the water with the calming properties of chamomile and soothe your muscles.
Once the tub is filled with warm water, add a few drops of lavender essential oil. Lavender is another herb known for its calming and soothing properties, and it blends well with chamomile.
Step into the tub and take a few deep breaths, allowing the scent of the chamomile and lavender to calm your mind and body. Imagine any stress or tension melting away from your body as you sink deeper into the water.
Stay in the bath for at least 20-30 minutes, allowing the chamomile and lavender to work their magic. You can also visualize any negative or anxious energy leaving your body and being replaced with a sense of peace and tranquility.
When you're ready to get out of the tub, take your time and be gentle with yourself. Wrap yourself in a cozy robe or clothes and continue to bask in the calming energy of the herbs.
Finally, extinguish the candle and give thanks for the healing and soothing energy of the chamomile and lavender.
This chamomile calming bath ritual is a great way to relax and recharge after a long day, or to prepare yourself for a restful night's sleep.
