The body is our temple, so to care for it, cleanse it and grace it with sweet smelling fragrances is to invite the divine spirit into ones own being. Honouring the Gods and Goddesses in this way allows the spiritual and physical aspects of life to unite within one’s own bodily temple. Water is the sacred source of life, the well of eternal youth and rejuvenation. Many cultures have created elaborate bathing rituals, which are pursued as a form of art and considered an essential aspect of civilization. In such traditions bath oils fragranced with essential oils play a vital role. Bath oils not only delight the senses with their heavenly aromas, but also replenish some of the natural skin oils that are normally simply washed away. Thus, they prevent dehydration and in the process nurture the skin, leaving it feeling soft, silky and smooth.
Add one tablespoon of bath oil to your bath water once the tub is full. Volatile oils evaporate easily at high temperatures, thus adding the oil with the running water risks losing some of its fragrance and effectiveness. Agitate the water to disperse the oil before entering the bath tub. This is important to achieve an even distribution of oil. As you relax, enveloped by the heavenly scents, visualize purification on every level, mental, emotional, spiritual and physical. Candlelight enhances the setting and assists relaxation.
