The process of enveloping yourself in water has been a key ritual for centuries as part of culture and religious ceremony as well as being famed for the rich therapeutic benefit it can deliver.
We believe strongly that the act of taking a bath can provide an important moment of self-care and ritual for yourself.
We recommend following these steps to get the most out of your bath using Organic Merchant Mineral Bath Soaks:
- Switch off both physically and mentally – leave your devices in another room, lower the lighting and put the do not disturb sign on the door.
- Fill and pour – fill your bath with warm water, enough to cover your whole body. Pour your desired amount of OM Bath Soak into the bath as the water is running.
- Hydrate – replenish your internal fluids before you step in and keep some water or tea with you while you bathe.
- Set your intentions – take a moment to breathe in deeply, close your eyes and enjoy the aroma taking hold of the bathroom. Set an intention on what kind of experience you would like to create.
- Soak – immerse yourself into the muddy, mineral rich medicinal waters that have now been created in your bath. Turn on a guided meditation or some soothing music and soak for 2- 30 minutes, keeping the water at a consistent temperature.
- Restore – emerge from your bath and pat yourself dry. Do not shower! You want to leave the minerals on your skin to continue to do their magic. Drink a glass of water and relax under a warm blanket. This is important as the body continues to detoxify through perspiration.
